Happy Admin Week

I have been a secretary/admin for about 15 years. I have always enjoyed my job and have taken the time during all my jobs to learn as much as I could to be the best I could be. And for me this is one of my favorite weeks of the year.

I usually like to give something to the other women I work with that are also Admins. So this year, I made tags that I got the idea for, from Craft Stamper magazine. Here is one of them.

Challenge Day!

Today I stepped way out of my comfort zone. I participated in my first Challenge Day at a Middle School.

To find out information about Challenge Day use this link: Challenge Day. I learned about it at work and signed up. I had to fill out a form about me, so they could verify I had no record or problems. They sent me details of what to expect and what was expected of me as an adult volunteer.

I enjoyed this day, learned a lot about these students in a short time and about myself. I was able to be more open than usual for myself and participated freely in front of others, because I was doing it for the kids. Which in the end helped me. I will do this again!

Oh What a Beautiful Day!

It is so hard to believe it is 84 degrees out! Oh, it is so nice outside!

We have had a very long winter in Michigan. Even know everyone I saw today, said it won't last, I don't care, it is beautiful today! In Michigan, it is always said if you don't like the weather wait a day, it will change. Only this time we don't want it to change.

I went shopping today with my best friend Kathy to Scrapbook Peddler. We wanted to check it out since it has moved to a larger location. It is very nice! I bought stuff for next weekend. I will be scrap-booking with my daughters at Sabrina's home. She has a great finished basement, which we all enjoy spending time in. I will be working on a surprise for my hubby for our 40th Wedding Anniversary this year.

Have a very nice day!

My Dear Husband

This is my dear husband Rodney. This was taken on train ride in Kentucky last year.

Rodney is very good to me, we agreed that he cooks and I clean. But he also helps me do dishes and laundry and pays someone to clean our house every other week. I am very blessed. I get to spend all the time I want on crafts!

My first post!

Today I begin a new journey...

A little bit of my history...
I have loved making all kinds of crafts for many years. Finally at age 58, I have been blessed with the best craft room and supplies to make beautiful things to share with others. When my kids were young, I had very little room or money for making crafts. Now, I have the room and money! I enjoy creating almost every day!

In the last couple of years I have had the pleasure to watch others on the computer, making cards, scrapbook pages, and many other things. I read from their blogs daily. With their inspiration, I have greatly improved my skills.

Now I am ready to have my own blog to share my love of crafts with others and find friends with the same love of crafting.
