I took this ugly tray...a tray that have seen many crafts come and go on, it had a gross collection of paper mache, paint, and hardened glue on it.

And I made it into this.. with the help of paint and scrapbook paper.

kinda nice, right?
Another angle -

happy Saturday!

She's Breaking Out of her Shyness.

A year ago, Allison never would have went onstage at a magic show. Never, not ever ever. But, she did just that when we were on vacation. The magician picked her and said that he was going to turn her into a bunny. Here he is talking to her, asking her what her name and age is, and she spoke up, clearly - loudly.. It was a proud moment for her Daddy and Me.

Then - he turned her into a bunny!

It was very cute.

Thanks for your help yesterday.. with my what is this square thingy on my blog.. I think I will be changing up my blog background until I get that right feel.

I have been busy...doing projects around the house, art with the girls.. I will post what I have been up to soon!

What the....?

Tell me.. please.. folks... Do you see this square thingy in the middle of my blog that says "image removed or deleted by photobucket" or something like that?

It is on my screen when I look at my blog page and I don't know what it is, how it got there, why its there, what its purpose is, how to get rid of it, what to do about it, who to call, how to complain about it, who to blame it on, and so on and so forth.

If you can't see it, well, then, I obviously have bigger problems.

Let me know!

many thanks in advance!

To Making it Count.

I watched Titanic the other night.. everytime that movie comes on, I am sucked in to watching it. It is just too good (and horrible) a love story to turn away from. I also have to watch The Perfect Storm, The Great Outdoors, Summer Rental, Big, Baby Boom, and Tootsie - whenever they come on.. There are a bunch of other movies that come to mind as well -but that is not the point of this post. Anyway - TITANIC - Jack Dawson says at the dinner table with the snooty people that he makes each day count and Rose says, "To making it count." And that is where I am. I have been introspetive regarding my girls and how fast they grow and how in just over a month, both will be in school.

My little Emily, with her curly hair and bright smile, and her neverending supply of love and hugs for her sister, me, and Daddy. She lights up every room she is in.

And Allison, with her inquisitive nature, her spunk and charm, and her infectious laugh.

To making it count,
