Okay… now that I finally finished that, I wanted to let you know that this weekend is Expo and I am getting all the treasures packed and ready. Here are all the details, I hope you can make it.

I had decided to try and start showing more photo’s of projects and old stuff, things that would be of more interest to people who might be looking for great ideas and inspiration.

Well, I will try and do that but I still have to throw in some family fun and random baby pictures, because I love them and that has to be good enough reason…

So with that said, my sister Toni and her husband Denny hosted an Apple Party in their new barn last Saturday. The weather was iffy so we were glad for the cover! Their girls were here with the babies and that in itself is a reason to party 041
