Love, hugs and kisses, i heart you cards

At my last card camp, we created more than 200 cute cards altogether that were Valentine themed, but not specific to that day. This one was the favorite by most. I LOVE (get it?) the way it turned out. The yellow lighting doesn't do the soft colors justice. Imagine the love we sent out with our handy work when each card reached its recipient and put a smile on his or her face! That's one thing that makes this process worthwhile, not to mention the chance to get together with our girlfriends and meet new friends for an evening.My friends and I will make some of these "so very happy for you" cards at my next card camp on March 6. (Sierra is doing our precutting for this card. Thank you so much, Sierra!)
I just made this one (below) tonight and am still stuck on the love theme apparently. I love putting these cardstock colors together: pumpkin pie, pink passion, pretty in pink, and old olive. I just used a new stamp from my Trimtastic set (the ric rac stamp on the chocolate chip cardstock) for the first time.
This hugs and kisses card was fun, but since my slit-hole punch is missing, it was more challenging of a card to make at last month's get together. It was kind of a pain, but everyone managed (some more easily than others). Mandi was the person who first introduced me to these plastic "crystal" gems to use on cards. They add such a fun three-dimensional element to cards. The best part is that these little gems come in an assortment of colors and sizes from Hobby Lobby for under a dollar for twenty or thirty of them. (Shana is going to help do precutting for this card. Thank you, Shana!)
Kathy created this card and I have always wanted to make them, so this is one of the ones we'll be doing at the March 6 card camp. (Paige is going to help do the precutting for this card. Thank you, Paige!)

I love the "LOVE" card so much! I wanted to get that set, but held off. I am glad you didn't.

All of these cards look so cute. I bet that you have such a great time putting them together. However it really does look like a ton has to go into each one.

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
