Hello blog...remember me?!

Hello blog! Remember me?! Wow! I cannot believe it has been over a month since I have posted here! Life has a funny way of getting in between me and my good intentions sometimes. We have had a rough couple of months and things have been kind of on spin cycle for us. We lost another member of my husband's immediate family due to cancer and it has been tough to bounce back into our routine. It really makes you think about life and your priorities and how important your time and your people are. I have really missed posting here though as this is a happy creative outlet for me and I feel like that is really important as well!

Ok, enough with the babble! On to some pictures! I have lots of stuff to share with you guys! Some of it is crafty and some is just personal! If any of it bores you however feel free to skim on through! :) Yesterday was Father's Day and so the kids made hubby the breakfast of his choice and some fun little gifts! Here he is with 3 of our kiddos (our oldest is working and was unable to get away):

This is hubby with our youngest! She made him this cute fan that says I am your fan and a NASA hat from a recycled milk jug! Giggles! He was such a good sport and wore the hat for quite a while!

Here he is with our youngest son who gave him a card with a recording of Napoleon Dynamite spewing out miscellaneous funny appropriate dad-isms! (which was a big hit btw!)

Here he is with our oldest daughter! She made him the card they all signed this year!

Our gift to him was a set of new grilling tools! That was the good news! The bad news was that he had to cook his own Father's Day dinner with them! I don't think he really minded though! Fun day!

Ok, on to some crafty something or anothers! Our challenge for my last Stampin Up! demo meeting was to make 4 pieces of coordinating card candy per person! I went with my favorite color combo and one of my favorite new Stamp sets! the set is Elements of Style and is just beautiful! Here are my pieces of card candy:

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Punches: Scallop Circle, 1 3/8 Circle and 1 1/4 Circle, Scallop Oval, Med Oval, Heart, Butterfly, Tag and small flower form 3 Punch Pack
Extras: White Gel Pen and Gold Brad

Ok, I am off for a full day! Gosh! It sure feels good to be back! I have really missed you guys!

Have a good day! I will be back soonest!
