Well it is almost done. Last weekend I packed up my scrapbook room and moved it out of the extra bedroom and moved into our nice big family room. I have to share the room with our fullsize airhockey table but I am okay with that. All though I am having touble getting everything organized. Since this room is seen from our kitchen and dinig room area I have to have it presentable. Wow I didn't realize I had so much stuff. I should have things organized the next couple of days and will post pictures.
Hope everyone is enjoying your summer.

Fathers Day.
Happy Fathers Day to all the real dad's out there. We have a quiet weekend as Brittany is still in Wyoming with Chris. They should be home to stay the first part of the week. I am still moving the scrapbook studio and have plans to complete it this weekend. Probably tomorrow since Sunday will be a day full of BBQ and NASCAR...

I did however get a chance to take a picture of this years fathers day cards. I made them and sent them out. I have yet to make hubby's but will do that probably tonight while he is sleeping. It was kind of weird this time. I cut 5 cards as I usually do for family and sat there thinking opps don't need the 5th one since I can't send it to heaven. As slow as our postal service is no telling when grandpa would get it.. lol

okay here is a couple of shots of the cards:

This has been a week. I didn't get hardly anything done. I tired but it just wasn't there. I lost my grandfather early Tuesday morning. It was somewhat expected. Well that is we knew it would happen but is death ever really expected? If we knew what day and time we would die would we live life to it's fullest and say goodbye to our love ones before we went to sleep? I would not want to know. I would be afraid I would not get everything done. I have realized over the last few months I have realized that it isn't the materialistic things you have in life that mean the most it is the smallest things that matter. The I love yous or the hey thanks, or you look nice that matters. My grandpa was 84 when he passed away. He was told 2 years ago he had cancer and was only given a few months to live. Well 2 years later... The best thing I can thank God for is when he did finally get sick a couple of months ago he was in no pain. The worst part about the whole thing was about 2 weeks ago he started losing his appetite. But still no pain. He went home to God peacefully in his sleep. He will be greatly missed.

As I said this week was a non creative week. But I finally gave my mom hers and my dad's 40th anniversary card so I can now post it.
This week I will be moving my scrapbook room into our game room. One good thing I am not downsizing I am up sizing. We are having a house guest for a few months and I needed to give up the bedroom. But I am happy to have a new space for a while.
Before I go here is that anniversary card and I will hopefully be posting Father's Day cards before I unplug to move.

I tell you being off your feet is not fun. I am starting to move around a lot more.. Still moving slow but moving. I have appreciated being waited on hand and foot though. It was nice. Hubby only complained a little hear and there and it was mainly because I would tell him things to bring one by one and wouldn't tell him all at once.
I got to work on some recipe cards and wanted to post them. I am almost finished with the Thank you notes for my daughter to send out for her graduation presents. I have just been slow at making them. Here are 3 of the recipes I have finished this week.
