Helping a Friend

Life has been a bit busy and I picked up a virus and sinus infection so missed posting last week entirely. 

I have been helping my friend Christy with the baby shower for her first grandbaby. She found this adorable Owl Diaper critter online and I helped her re-create 7 of them for the centerpieces on the tables. In this photo the ones behind are waiting for ears, we ran out of washcloths.

We had Stamp Club last week and a Cards for Troops yesterday. I will try and get some pictures of the cards to post in the next couple of days. I hope to be working on some new designs soon. My goal is to post once or twice a week this year. I may even try some blog candy later since I have found a couple duplicates of stamps. Hmm..... must have really liked them.

 I am continuing my purge/clean/organize project so who knows what I may decide needs a new home. My daughter is helping me and we started in the kitchen last week. We cleaned the cabinets with Murphy's Wood Oil Soap, moved the fridge and cleaned and dusted behind and under it and wiped down the exterior of all the appliances and counters. Tomorrow we start on the disaster room. It partially houses the Cards for Troops materials, some other art supplies and the exercise equipment. It is buried as it's become the catch-all the past few months, you can barely walk through it. It will take probably the better part of a week to unearth, sort, purge and organize again.

Blessings come daily in small and big ways. I am thankful my bug wasn't the flu. Hubby installed a new kitchen sink, faucet and water purification system this weekend. The first Cards for the Troops was fabulous and I try to find some way to be kind each day and share.

Hope your week is fabulous!
