Valentine's day Card

Well hope everyone is having a great weekend. Its a pretty nice day here, tomorrow its going to be 70. SO while I can I have enjoyed being able to get some bike riding in. Today I took a hour and half ride since I am by myself this weekend. DH went out of town to hunt, him and his buddy are on a tiny house on a deer lease. Look at this place there

It looks like a house that belong in a horror I would not want to stay there. No power, no heat, no water, no bathroom. Its pretty much a room with 4 walls. Joked that if a tornado come along I think I get out of the house than to stay in that. lol All I have to say is there is no way I be able to stay there.

Card for 18th birthday!

Sorry have not posted any thing new till now. Took a much needed break after the holidays. This was the first project for 2012 I worked on, its a card for my nephew so did not want to take an chance on him seeing it online. My Nephew Ryan turns turned 18 today!

Where did the time go? Seem like yesterday he was just a tiny little thing I could hold in my arms. The day he was born he was thought to be very early so they ended up care flighting his mom who was in labor at the time to the DFW area. Bless my SIL Jenny's heart she had to ride all by her self by care flight in labor. I cant imagine what that was like. He was born healthy and so darn cute! He had my heart the min I held him. I was an AUNT!

Me holding Ryan and that is my dad. Wow look at the cloths and
I remember being over at there home and he would be crying in the baby bed and they were trying to get him to not want to be held all the time. I would cave in and the min Jenny would leave the room I pick him up I could not stand to here him I know she wanted to strangle But hey was good at walking babys to sleep though so I think she did not mind to much. lol
Now 18 years later he is a young man about to graduate high school this year. He is in the top 5 of this class. He is so smart and has so much drive to scuceed. With his smarts and his drive there is nothing he cant do. He got accepted to Baylor,  just am so proud to call him my nephew. This next year for him will be full of changes as he goes into the next chapter of his life. But for now I just wish him a wonderful birthday with friends and surrounded by family. I think I speak for most who know Ryan we are all so blessed to have him in our lives.
Happy Birthday Ryan!

Working on those resolutions?

Wow first post of 2012 sorry not posted yet, life has kinda got back to normal. I worked on a card last night (first project of 2012 )but I cant share it yet. That will be posted Friday night or Saturday, don't want to take the chance on a certain person looking at my blog and seeing there
Anyways so while I wait to post that thought I would share how the new years resolution have been going. This last Monday and Tuesday we worked on the storage are in the attic. We re-decked the storage area. Since we still had all the decorations down we thought better do it now while we can. Don't like to use the attic as storage but for things like holiday decorations I guess its okay. We also have started to add insulation over the garage.
We finished it Tuesday then Weds I started to get the tree ready to go out. It looked like a Christmas bomb went off in our house Weds Today "Thursday" I finished getting it all packed up I had to buy one more Christmas tote. But its so organized now, so happy! Here is the pics I snapped and thought I share the way I am storing Christmas items so next year maybe It will be little easier.

I broke down the boxes on what should be used first. So for us we buy the real tree and get it home. Normally I have him pull all the boxes down and have to hunt for everything. Not this next year! I labeled them by box number, Box 1 has tree lights & tree skirt and house lights & house light clips. Once empty it goes out and ready for box 2. Which has all the fire place decor and fire place garland, garland lights, as well as some house decor. Then bring in box 3 and I have all my good ornaments in this that go on the tree. I keep this box in a closet cause I don't trust the attic with these cause some I have had since I was 13. Box 4 is the finale box which has our angel and basic fill ornaments. I also put the floral picks as well in here that I use in the garlands and tree and wreaths. I am hoping this saves me some time next year cause I spent way to much time looking for stuff this last year. Have it all labeled so even if I forget by next year the contents will make sense. Want to weed out some of the contents so this next year items I don't use I will more than likely get rid of.
So that has been our start to the new year, I would love to hear how you store your decorations? I have heard when you store items where you have it has bad temp change its messes your ornaments up. I hope its not like that for other things like vine decorations or fabrics.
