LOVELY LACE...

With my love for paper art and fabric design, I enjoyed using the DOTTED LACE TRIM as a card embellishment..... Pretty, huh!

Flowering Fields

I wrapped the lace around a piece of white cardstock,

secured it on the backside, and adhered to the card front.

Adding a little border at the bottom

made it extra pretty...

MY SISTER GIFT...

One of the very best things about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator are the times I can personalize a gift by making a handmade tag, card, bag, or box, for family and friends. My SISTER DAY store-bought gifts were packaged in pretty boxes...

Box1

. . . . . . . . . .

Box2

I measured the gifts so the box was the perfect fit...

Box3

Inside was a Garden Fairy...

Garden Fairy

and a package of cocktail napkins with a garden theme...

Garden Cocktail Napkins

So simple. So fun. So loved.

SISTERS...

Sister Day 2016

99% of my blog for the past seven years has been filled with handmade art, mostly designed by me. But today I'm inspired to share a different kind of art, created in heaven. Our Annual Sister Day...

Sister Day

There are five sisters and three brothers in our family. There used to be eight of us. But now we're all married with children, grandchildren and even some great grandchildren. These days our family has grown to bajillions. We have other events throughout the year. Two of the most enjoyed are JULY AT THE BEACH PROPERTY, and CHRISTMAS AT HOME WITH SANTA. Today I'm highlighting SISTER DAY...

We usually start by taking photos so our makeup and hair are still fresh. Left to right: Letha, Diane, Vicki, Linda, Nancy...

Sister Day 2016

Sisters1

This year we met at Vicki's. Of course everything was so beautiful, with perfect ambience. The table is where we sat for five hours, sharing our journals, our hearts, and our dreams. We laughed till our faces hurt, and cried our makeup away. There was brunch and lunch so we didn't go hungry. And gifts from everyone to everyone, like Foaming Bath Oil, Hens & Chicks Perennials, a Sugar Plum Candle, Coconut Oil and more. I'll show you my gift tomorrow, since a part of it was handmade (green box in gift photo)...

and when we were much younger...

Sisters6

I only picked a few Sister pictures but wanted to show you our brothers too. Left to right is Mark, Doug, and Joe. In case anyone recognizes any of us on this post today, our last name is Currie. Our parents are Joe and Letha Currie. Dad died twenty years ago, and Mom is in a nursing home. Age order oldest to youngest: Linda, Diane, Nancy Doug, Vicki, Joe, Letha, Mark...

Sisters & Brothers

Yes, the brothers do special things too, like hunting and fishing. (I have always felt blessed to be the oldest.) xoxox
