First Five!

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me!
Scary, I know!
My choice.
For you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations.

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year.

You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be a cool photo or an article that I think you will like. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?

So, here is the catch:
You must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment, will get a fabulous homemade gift by me! Be sure to post a picture of what you get when you get it

Kids say the profoundest things.

Absolutely true samples of kid-thought:

Jill: "I know why kids can't go in the Temple!"
Mom: "Oh yeah? Why?"
Jill: "Because the Temple is a peace place."

Crew: [while climbing a tree]"What holidays do trees have?"
Stacy: "What? I don't think trees have any holidays."
Crew: "No, when do they grow up? Like birthdays."
Stacy: "I guess they don't get to celebrate like we do, they just grow all year long."
Crew: "No, I know! They have a holiday, and then they grow up!"

Jill: "Why did Dad say 'the sun is Steednuh'?"
Stacy: "No, he said, 'всем стыдно,' it's Russian.
Jill: "What does that mean?"
Stacy: "It means before the face of God all are ashamed."
Jill: "Why?"
Stacy: "Because He's so much better than us."
Jill: "I'm not ashamed. I just do my best."

Photo Project

So a few weeks ago my Grandma asked me if I would merge a picture we have of my Grandpa with a picture of her, so we had a more "recent" picture of them together. (He died after only three years of marriage, when my Mom was two-ish.)

Today I finally finished it. It's been a really rewarding project, despite all the stress it's caused. =]

Here's the before:

And here's the after:

Soon I'll be doing one for my Grandma's friend Iris. She wants a composite picture of her parents.

Well, I'm gonna go now because my sister BECCA is here for a surprise visit with my niece. Fun times!!!
