Remembering G's Quiet Book

Last weekend Mr O and I went to a rodeo where my dad was being honored. (Congratulations dad, we are all so proud of you!) At the rodeo, we met up with some of my family, including my nephew K and his 2 boys, G & L.

I don't get to see G & L much since they don't live near me.  That being the case, I wasn't surprised when they didn't remember who I was.  After K re-introduced us, I found that G has turned into quite a chatterbox.  He told me that he is 9 now and that L is 8.  As I was talking to G, I was reminded of a quiet book that I made for him around the time that L was born.  I have no idea if the quiet book still exists, other than in my memories and pictures, that is, but I thought that it might be fun to share some pictures of it on my blog.


As you can probably tell, I made good use of my Sizzix dies when I created the quiet book.  I also used, and sadly, abused my Bernina so much when I was sewing all of those painted pages together that I had to take it in for service!

Exciting News

My craft room is getting an major overhaul.  The walls have been painted…goodbye boring white, hello color.  Mr O and I spent last Saturday purchasing tons of new furniture and stuff at IKEA.  And best of all, we are putting down laminate flooring this weekend! Woo Hoo!

Once we get everything done and I've got all my crafty supplies organized I’ll post some pictures.  I’m so excited about this…I’m almost giddy.
