Mom


I made this card to give to my mom today for her birthday! Her birthday is not today but we are celebrating with my family this afternoon!

It is stormy and yucky! Severe weather so I am a little nervous about that!

My body aches and I am soooo sleepy! :) I have been working my tail off to get my house cleaned out and better organized! Michael took 1 tub and 1 bag of just stuff.. and 4 bags of clothes to the Goodwill truck today! I have a 2 tubs of crafty stuff to deliver this weekend.. plus another tub of stuff to my mom. Plus... about 5 bags of misc. stuff that is going different places! AND... I am not done!

Off to tackle the t-shirt battle with the husband! Time to work on our room and then take a bath and make some potato salad to take tonight!

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!

Peace and Love!
