The bridge that allowed our relationship to bloom was a bottle of My Honey Mustard dressing. I'm serious, one weekend on "our weekend" Steve discovered that My honey mustard dressing was just about one of the best things on the planet to eat, it was right next to ketchup! If I could make something so yum, maybe I was okay. I made him more dressing and he told me I should bottle it. I found his little heart right through his stomach! No he never did like digging worms, and I never liked game boy; but we both learned listen to each other and love grew. Steve is 20 now and tells us he's never moving out, not to worry he'll take care of us when we're old ( in a couple of months).He's been with us full time since he was 14. We went through the high school years like a breeze. When I look back to that four year old and that 38 year old, I see nothing other than a miracle. It was all the simple things, that added up to something so much.
I made some simple cards tonight too, while I was thinking of those years. Ignacio from Nicecrane designs has sent me a boat load of images to make samples for ( Yay!!) and since I've been sick for the last couple of weeks I am way behind.
I made these using the Vintage Flower Books Collection . Simple and fast to work up!
my favorite: color is a little off in this, the background paper is a soft brown with pink polka dots.
Here a copy of the entire set:
Tomorrow I'll have some beautiful glassy butterflies to give you a short and EASY tutorial on !
Thanks for stopping by and remember all those simple things you do make a Magnificent Difference!
Wonderful life story Ginny....we just never know how we touch others by what we say and do!!! Great cards too!
