One LONG Post

Josh and I had our 1st wedding anniverary on the 16th of this month. If you click an enlarge this picture you can see me wearing my anniversary gift. Or you can see a picture of them in the box below.

This is the gift I gave Josh. It's what he gave his best men, but he forgot to get one for himself.

My wonderful husband installed the falcet and soap despenser pictured below one weekend while I was in Texas, which is why I don't have a before picture. It was a nice surprise to come home to, and it looks soooo much better than the one that we had!
These are pictures of our newly trimmed shrubs. Really wish that I would have taken a before picture for this one too so that you could appreciate how much they all needed to be trimmed.
I bought this onesie from walmart with the embrodery around the neck already intact, but I added the ladybug. I found a clipart picture on the internet and afixed the fabric with double sided adhesive and stitched around the edge. If you look closely, you will notice that I used buttons for the spots and the ends of the antenas. This was my first experience with sewing on a knit fabric. It was interesting. I had to seam rip quite a few times.
This is a bracelet that I made for my adopted mom at church. I made it to match the necklace pictured below it that she bought from a local craft show I believe. I thought it turned out nicely. She will be wearing it to her youngest son's wedding that will take place next month.

And lastly, I just returned home from South Padre Island, TX where I had my girls trip with Mom's family which included, Grandma, Mom, my aunts, female cousins, and our Louisana bunch, which included Grandma's sister and neices.

Playing catch-up

So I know that it's been a while excluding my jewelry post that I did a few nights ago. So here's a couple of things...

This is Lane's birthday present that I didn't finish until March. It's a ladybug blanket. Bentley was testing it out for me before we gave it Lane. It got his stamp of approval.
Allyson, Josh's little sister had her 5th birthday in March. After her party that she had with all of her family, Josh, Shannon (Josh's friend), and I took Allyson to Incredible Pizza. She had a really good time. Here's a few pictures from that....

Finally, in April, I went to the Heart Walk with my friend Lori from work. I decided to take Bentley with me at the last minute despite the fact that I thought I would have to carrry him half of the way, since a mile of walking is more excercise than Bentley normally gets in one day, much less 3 miles, but he did great. He was soooo excited! He led me the whole way pulling me along. Below is a picture of just that.This was the end of the walk.
And here is a picture of Bentley completely pooped on the ride home. Yes he was trying to fall asleep sitting up. I guess so that he could still feel the air conditioner. Silly dog.

That's all for now.

This one is a book mark.

This one is a bracelet.
