Cards that {some of my closest friends} and I will make..

This "Crab & Company" set is such a fun new design and I love using the googlie eyes for an added dimension. (Kathy designed this card, by the way.) I'll have both a pink and a blue marker to color the baby's layette in the hue of your choice for this card below. We have not made baby cards lately and since there are several pregnant women in these parts, I'm sure this card will get used quickly. Lindsay made a special request for a wedding card, so I promise to do one for next month (so be here, Lindsay Ü). The image below is from the "Very Punny" set with the words "crib notes" included, if you prefer that to "yeah baby."
This new Easter set "Glorious Gift" is elegant (as opposed to the usual whimsical Easter cards I have made). I've stamped the scripture onto a piece of vellum with it overlaying a piece of whisper white paper, where the floral design is stamped. The sentiment inside is perfect too, "Celebrating with You the Glorious Gift of the Resurrection."
Looks like I'll have a full house of about 21 guests at my once-a-month card camp. I hope these designs make everyone happy and aren't too complicated. I always have to remind myself to tone it down because sometimes I like to go for the extreme, multi-stepped cards rather than keeping it somewhat simple.

Love them all Kel. I love the third card...that "scriptina" font is one of my faves!

How wild it is that you recognize the font and even know the name of it, Summer. I guess it come with your business.

Kelly, all of those cards look fantastic. I have to say that I am a fan of the crabby one, just because it really makes me think of summer. You really do such a great job making cards.

I love all of those cards! My favorite is the crab one, too! I think he's super cute and I love the caption!
I LOVED that crab card last night! That is one of my fav cards we've ever made. So fun to do and see how it's done. I love the whole present and cake thing in the crabs claws....you can't appreciate how that little trick is done unless you see it and make it. Heidi would've loved it!

I think the color selection is just right, good job sis.

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…

Flagstaff House Executive Chef Mark Monette's Family Legacy

Mark Monette, executive chef and partner of Flagstaff House, has been the man behind the scenes in the kitchen for countless special occasions and celebrations. This fine dining restaurant situated a few miles up Flagstaff Road in Boulder, perched at the Flatirons' edge with a bird's-eye view of the city, is where Monette has spent more than three decades fine-tuning his craft in this family run business. The restaurant and staff have received accolades and notoriety locally and nationally, including recognition for being named "Top Ten Restaurant in Boulder," "Most Romantic Restaurants in America" and "Best American Cuisine and Best Wine Selection." (This article is from a Q&A interview I did with him in February, 2017.)
Your father, Don Monette, bought the Flagstaff House in 1971 when you were 10 years old. What do you remember about the restaurant back in those days?
"We would come up here in the summer and work, and it was just busy al…
