Weekend Festivities

Here is a picture of my son Ethan's basketball team. They won their conference basketball tournament 3rd place game on Saturday with a victory over Bethalto. They have played this team four times this season and have lost previously three times to them and finally came out on the winning side this time. All of the boys are in eighth grade and will be heading off to high school next year. How exciting. I can't believe my little baby will be going to high school. He is the small number 12 in the back row. About six foot tall. I am blogging right now because I went to put a few new items onto my Etsy shop and my camera battery was dead. Then I could not find my new battery charger. This took about 1 hour. Finally found it. Now I am charging my battery so I can upload my pictures.

Year of Color Valentines Swap

I finally completed my YEAR OF COLOR All That I Love Swap. It is in the mail and on its way to my swap partner "CAT". She has been wonderful and I am so glad that I have the opportunity to get to know her long distance. I received my wonderful package in the mail today and I was so excited to open it. I loved every single thing that I received. Thank you so much. What a great way to start the week with a lot of pink goodness. I think that there is no better way. Well here are a few peeks are what is on the way to Idaho:

I am so awful at putting things on this blog. I guess practice makes perfect, and I need much more practice. I have been struggling first of all with a new camera, and now with this blog tonight. Give me paper, glue, and paint and I can roll. Give me technology and I can't deal very well. That is because I live in this house with all these men and soon to be men and I am not allowed to use much technology and when I am faced to use it alone, I don't do so well. I will survive and learn.
I must get back to make some new things for my Etsy store.
