Love Ewe


What an exhausting and hot hot week we are having.  Today, when my 'lil critters and I meandered out of the woods early this morning after our walk, I actually could have used another shower.  The temps weren't so bad, but the humidity...amazing.

What a wimp I am compared to my college years when I lived in southeastern TN and summer temperatures with high humidity easily reached 100F.

One of the memories that always stand out in mind (especially during the summer) was the year my daughter was 2.  We lived in a townhouse that didn't have any AC, and in the midst of the heat wave that year, the temperatures were reaching highs of over 105F.  I would get home from work/school/daycare as the sun was setting and it felt warmer INSIDE than it did OUTSIDE.

We learned what was open late...and what was cool.....Needless to say, we hung out at those places (late and cool) until they closed (mostly the university library).

Ahhh...those were the days....

Well, okay, enough of the memories, but my card today took me back there, because it's been so long since I've had a small child.

I don't know about EWE (snort laugh), but the images in this card just make me smile.

Today the {ippity} Fabulous Feature is all about Love...and...Family...and...Birth...


Which, of course, took me back to when my daughter was a whee one.  And for me, that is what inspired this card.  The sentiment "because of YOU our dream came true". Of course, to go along with the sheep (LOVE YOU), I changed it to "EWE".

And I love to remember when she was so tiny.  She was such a smart, loving, happy girl.

She still smart, happy, and loving....And makes me smile whenever I see a picture of her...even as a grown-up!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Cold Heartless Prank

I get a call this afternoon at work from "a friend" of my daughter's. He said that my daughter had been in a serious accident --> hit by a car. He told me that she had a compound fracture and was being taken to a hospital (he told me the name of the hospital). I asked a few more questions as my panic increased to almost hysteria. I had started to cry and was shaking pretty badly

My daughter lives across the country - literally. I was so frightened that something had happened and she was injured and well, you know....all sorts of terrible things started running through my head.

So, in a scurry, a few of my colleagues here at work searched Google and found the number for the hospital ER and the State Police for me. What a blessing they were.

The ER said that she hadn't arrived yet. They also said that they hadn't received any "codes", meaning, that at least they were not having an emergency brought in that was life threatening. The emergency room sugge…
