Here are a few fun pages I just did - my favorite is the one of dd dressed up like someone else. lol.

Here are the girls at the store during closed hours. i think the sterile gloves are a nice touch, they're such a big help for their dad. lol.

My grandmother - she brings us her bingo winnings whenever we have a family dinner together. It's really a big deal for her, and we think its a hoot. We get stuff like dishwashing liquid, tissues, soap, sometimes ceramic figurines too!

the fall festival for our school was held at a local pumpkin farm this year. that was very fun and a nice break from the usual PTO games and activities in the gym. I had to try out my new green Glimmer mist by spraying it over some silk leaves. fun!

Christmas Gifts

Remember back before Thanksgiving and I aluded to some classes held at my house, where we made some Christmas gifts? Can you believe I finally am going to post some pictures! ah! I'm getting caught up.

This mug is bagged and ready for giving, but you can see the general idea. I used StazOn to stamp the image, then painted with ceramic paint. You want to be sure and use clear over the stazon because it will eventually wash off. Porcelain 150 by Pebeo is a good product to use for ceramic.

And here is a Santa Cookie Kit, when i gave them they also had some homemade cookies and almond bark inside. I covered the rolling pin with some patterned paper and then shellacked to seal it. Stamped the side of the tin with White StazOn. They came out pretty cute after I got the hang of stamping the white on the curved edge. The stamps were from a really cute mini set from American Crafts.

Thanks for taking a look! I'll try to come back with something more. I still have coasters to show you. So easy, and the kids were driving me crazy wanting to do them all the time.

Wow. I hope you all are doing a better job of enjoying the hoiday than I am. We have been party central here for the last two weeks and I just haven't had time to talk to you all.

Did I mention we had a couple parties? DeAnne turned 6. We did a Hello Kitty party. I'll have to edit photos before posting them here. It was very cute and really fun. Such nice little girls.

And Steve turned 50. And we got him good! We did a surprise "The Life of Steve" movie party. Including popcorn machine, red carpet, spot light (that said Happy 50th) and Oscar awards for movie trivia buffs.

I didn't have my camera at the party so I will get some pictures from my friends' cameras soon. But for your viewing pleasure - here are the photos that were displayed all over the house, with stories provided by Steve's family and college friends. My favorite classic comment, from 9 yr old Paige... "Why isn't Mr. Price wearing his wig in this picture?" check out the slide show below and you'll laugh along with the rest of us.
