Notes from the "greats"

Aidan's school just finished off their "Post Office" unit. As part of the learning experience, friends & family members were asked to write letters to their favorite kindergartner. Aidan received a bunch of letters, but I think it is so great to have received very special notes from 2 of his great-grandparents.
I don't think he realizes it now, but he is a very lucky kid to have so many great-grandparents still living. I especially like the drawing on Grandpa Johnson's note.
I never really had a chance to know any of my "greats", so I guess that makes it even more special.

In different news, just received a bunch of vacation pictures in the mail today, so planning on working on a new album soon!

Another birthday and some sweet valentines!

First, a Happy Birthday to my brother!
Such a good daddy, brother, uncle, son & husband. Enjoy your day, little brother!

Sweet Valentine Ornaments
Just some cutesy little ornaments that I made from papier mache ornaments I have had laying around for years. Used Perfect Paper adhesive from ArtQuest to adhere the papers, and then embellished them. I think they turned out rather cute...especially love the one for my dear Grandma (on the right-hand side).

I've been spending entirely too much time on-line looking at all the sneak-peeks for new scrapbooking items from the CHA winter show in California this week. Looking forward to a bunch of the new releases!

TTFN (ta-ta for now)

free = good!!

Just got a package of goodies from Shannon Tidwell from KI Memories today!!! Lucky me, I was picked as a random winner for posting a comment on their blog. Go check it out!

Also expecting my order from Gymboree today. Ordered a bunch of cute stuff for Olivia with my Gymbucks.

More scrapbooking goodies should be arriving soon from Studio Calico pretty soon too! Really looking forward to that.
Hmmm... that's probably enough shopping for a while.

Good mail days & free stuff make me happy!
