My Sister-In-Law

This is the card I made for my sister-in-law's birthday this year.  She's the kind of person who always knows what to get someone for a present, or what food people will like, she just has a knack for those sort of things. She has made a great addition to our family.  And this year on vaction she made us some delicous smoothies, thus the front of her card.

The Smartest thing You Never Said - Thanskgiving

I like to make funny place settings for our family for our holiday meals and this is what I made for Thanksgiving this year.  I got the idea and template for the turkey from MarthaStewart.com and came up with phrases that each of us should have said (thus the smartest thing we never did). Everyone knew who they were immediately :)

My funny Mom :)

 
This is the card I made for my Mom's birthday this year. When my brothers and I were growing up, we'd be like, ooh lets go and get some ice cream and she'd say "let's not an say we did."

Not all the time of course, we did get to do things, but she liked to say this on occassion when she wasn't going to let us and it just seemed to me a particularly awful thing to say.

But now when I think back over my life I realize that was my mom having fun, making a no into a more fun way of saying no. And that is very much my mom. She's always had a way of lightening the mood about things and its one of the many things I really appreciate about her today.
