Hawaiian Graduation


Hey Everyone! How are you?! We tackled the IKEA furniture and it was so easy in the beginning. I did one entire piece by myself. Then, I helped Mac put together the larger pieces. We were doing so well until the end. Why is it that the easiest tasks are so daunting? We ran out of steam and left one final step to complete tomorrow. So, I'm going to start hauling stuff to the new space tomorrow night!!! I did not want to start before the furniture was in place because I thought I might have to keep moving it around other stuff. I'll keep you posted on the progress!

Of course I did not make a card yesterday, so here is one that I made a few weeks ago. It is a Hawaiian-themed graduation card! This was a special request to match a graduation gift someone is giving to a graduate.

Thanks for visiting today!

Take a peek at the Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure pictures from last weekend. I even took a couple! I even saw VP Joe Biden and his family (very close) and photographed Lalah Hathaway. VP Biden was really funny and introduced his wife, Dr. Jill Biden who sort of participated in the race (see pictures). Lalah was a really cool person and sang at the event. I have a picture with her too and will share when Mac 'releases' it!

  5. Add ribbon and flowers.
