Blast from the Past

Well - being 'all done' early does have it's bonuses - some of which are creating projects for the sheer fun of it!

FIRST - I ended up making a card and frame (with photo included - taken during a Senior Portrait session!) for a friends' b'day... I missed her b'day but figured since she was suffering in Hawaii she wouldn't really NOTICE - still, I wanted to do SOMETHING... this is what I came up with:

THEN - since that didn't take too much time on Saturday (and my dd was working NON-STOP on a couple of school projects, and dh was 'out' - at the Mall I suspect - all day) - I made another Starbucks Mini for dh's birthday! I picked him up a new Starbucks Travel Mug and some Starbucks coffee - so I thought I would just stick with the theme... here is the finished product:

I sent out all my Christmas cards/letters with a Family photo and my "Sisser" Vanessa got it and her hubby thought he went to school with my 'twin'! Vanessa's blog showed a yearbook photo of my 'twin' which in turn created a conversation with all of the Sisserhood of the Traveling Crops about how fun it would be to see photo's of each other from back in the day! So - not only a yearbook or Senior photo, but a baby photo of ourselves, and a Wedding Photo or two! How fun! I hope all of them play along!

I didn't have many BABY photo's - I was pretty sick as an infant, not expected to live! I wanted to find the one of me in the hospital with all the tubes on me - but I must not have that one... Anyway, here are a few of me as a toddler, a couple from school, and a couple on my Wedding Day!

Enjoy my Blasts from the Past...

My Mom & I... circa maybe 1971?
The Three Sisters: Kimmy, Karinna, & me!

Don't forget to play along!

Oh - since I promised not to upload to facebook before she could see them - here are a few pix of my girlie going to her first formal dance! (She and Allison - going with a group of girlfriends... Mom says, "Amen!")

Merry Christmas!
