On our way

To the soccer game from hell we saw this hot air balloon just a few blocks from our house.You can tell Fall is here, it gets cool enough for the balloons to fly. On a different note, our worst loss ever 12 to zip. We played in Abilene, 4 hours away, and it was sad to watch for 2 hours. T is still injured and didn't play but I felt sorry for the other goalie.

Holy Smokes Batman!

I know I haven't been out much, work gets in the way, but alas I have spotted a relative or 3. Well, 2 weren't actually spotted by me, but by someone at your local WalMart. I think Batman is my nephew getting an early start on Halloween. Camo man is my beer drinking, shotgun toting uncle, that just loves dove season.The cute little Flower Power niece was grabbing a quick breakfast at Burger King, while Janet and I were next door grabbing a Starbucks Latte. Cute little thing isn't she, just needs a bow for her hood ornament:)

Big Texas Album and Birds

This is our new Big Texas album. I used the awesome Texanna Designs stamps throughout the album. Just love how it stamped on the leather piece on the front. I used Maya Road Mist, 10 Second Studio metal, and lots of other fun stuff!
These cute acrylic hanging birds are our make and take next weekend. Just love how they sparkle and turn in the light.

Stick a fork in this project! 25 albums are done, well almost, I still have to package the kits, but I will have help on that. These are 2 more of the 11 pages, one is a pull tab album that adds 5 more pictures to the album, the other a fun pocket page .

Why did I think

My life would be slower with the little bird left the nest? We have soccer games 2 days a week and they involve traveling and I guess work takes up the rest of the week. T is having fun at college, slept through her alarm today and missed her first class, ok, that's enough fun:)
I thought I would have time to clean my house, watch movies, eat bon-bons and enjoy the empty nest. Nope, we have a show in Houston in 2 weeks, lots of prep work involved in getting 25 albums ready for a class, plus 100 make and takes, plus filling orders...T needs to come back she could help with all of this!

Concordia University - Women's Soccer Battles MSOE to 1-1 Tie
A great afternoon for soccer! Hot but not miserable, unless you are from Wisconsin. The visiting parents thought it was unbearable! Great soccer game, the girls from Wisconsin are tough!
