*WARNING! - this post is all about my personal life. No crafts today!! Hello friends! Well we started out our summer with some real excitement. On May 12, my daughter, Caitlyn, graduated from Quincy University & Blessing Rieman College of Nursing with her BSN. We are so very proud of her and very excited because she will be working in labor/delivery at a large hospital not far from our house!
Here are my girls.......
From left to right, Colleen, Caitlyn and Cassie. I can't believe how lucky I am to be their mother.
The day after graduation, Caitlyn and her boyfriend Michael and 9 others from Quincy University left for Italy. They had 10 days to enjoy all the sights in Italy. About the third day they were gone, I got this photo with the message.....She said Yes!
We are so happy for them! What a romantic way to propose, don't you think! I think EVERYONE knew Michael was going to propose except Caitlyn. I am very excited for them and kinda excited to get started with the wedding crafts again!
Now it's time for us to kick the graduation party plans into gear and get on with the rest of the summer. I am going to ignore the fact that I am now the mother to a Senior in high school.
I should have a ton of crafty to share over the summer. I am designing for Crafter's Companion still and in July they will be having another crafty day on HSN. Plus I am expecting a big box of goodies from Tonic Studios soon. I am not really designing for any other companies, so expect some posts using stuff I really love. I really enjoy sharing my creations with you but with the change in the industry (as far as designers go), I am not sure how long I can maintain this blog and continue to share my creations. That is one of the reasons why I started using affiliate links to try and cover some of the costs of keeping my blog, etc. I sure do appreciate it anytime you click on something I link too and make a purchase. Every little bit helps!
So now that you are caught up with me and my family, let's get the crafty show on the road!
