A Week in the Life

I am doing a challenge to scrap a week in my life. I was inspired by Ali Edwards. It should be fun and I am interested to see the finished product as I don't really know the specifics yet. I am already taking a lot of pictures of what seems to be nothing... and awaiting creative inspiration for how to put them together, but I have high hopes for what this little mini album will be!Here is a peek at some of the pics. And you can see I have just started another of those knitted washcloths, this one is a different pattern :)

a scrapbook page

Here is a scrapbook page I tried with a heritage photo.
I think the color scheme is great with a black and white photo!

I just love working with these kinds of photos, it helps me to feel connected to my roots.

It Begins

My darling daughter is only 9. Only 9, I say! Yet, the phone calls from the many best friends have already begun. Last night we were out and when we got home, not 1, not 2, but 3 messages- all for her. I am not sure that I am ready for this. We had only just started to let her talk for like 5 minutes on the phone and after homework and wow, do I need more rules? How will I deal with this? Seriously, I am so thankful that she has several good friends. Last year was a little tougher like that, moving to a new school and all. Maybe I need advice from my Mom. I know she always has some helpful wisdom for me. I guess I will count my blessings and set some parameters, that is what parents do. Right Mom?

Christmas in September

I know it is a little early, but we are so excited about Operation Christmas Child that we couldn't wait. We bought two plastic shoe boxes and filled them with toys! Our whole church is going to participate this year. I think it is such a huge blessing, that I had the kids use a couple of their own dollars, and then I pitched in to fill out the box of gifts! They are both excited to give a gift to a child who might not even have any toys. If you haven't done it before, click on the link and consider donating a shoe box to Operation Christmas Child! I may even do a few more boxes before the drop off deadline, it is so wonderful!

I have been doing a lot of knitting lately... webkinz clothes and dishcloths (similar to this one), mostly for relaxation and maybe for a gift or two. I have tried several patterns for webkinz sweaters, after looking all over the web! They were extremely difficult to find. I found several at knitting pattern central that were meant for dolls and/or beanie babies. They came out ok, but I keep going back to the extremely quick and easy one that I created. Mollie doesn't seem to mind all of the webkinz sweaters and experimentation, it just means that her webkinz are accruing quite a wardrobe! Now to make some for Christmas gifts... I only wish I could find a great craft for boys to knit/crochet/craft/create for gifts. I have so many nephews!

Beyond knitting/crafting, we have really just had the first week of school after closings from TS Fay, and now we have our eyes on Hurricane Hanna and TS Ike to see where they might be headed.
