The middle of the week.....

and I'm getting ready for a Ladies' Retreat at our church this weekend. On Friday night, we are having a craft expo and I'm preparing for 200 make 'n takes. I wanted to make something rather easy and quick for the ladies to make since they will not have a lot of time at each booth to create. I decided to make 2 different Spring gift tags with some punch work and some stamping. Then, on Saturday, the girls and I are doing a way-too-real-to-life skit about sharing the bathroom on a Sunday morning before church. I'm just praying someone laughs a couple of times!

While I was preparing for the tags last night, Carmen comes running in the house and says, "Mom, come look at the deer!" I grabbed my camera and took a couple of shots. Unfortunately, it was getting dark and I didn't have the right lens on my camera, but I still am amazed at how beautiful God's creatures are...especially when they are right in my back yard:


  1. A cool picture! I am soo happy that you have a blog...I can visit and catch up more!

  2. I think those deer came to our house after they visited you. :)

  3. Wow! I can't imagaine looking outside to see that beatiful sight. I'm in the middle of So CA, in the city, so no such thing as that for us here. lol
    I've loved your layouts on 2 peas, so I'm excited to see you have a blog :)
