Fiskateer project

Lead Fiskateer Rebecca selected 5 people to be imaginative with an unknown item she would send to us and a Fiskars tool.

Well this was for sure a very odd item.  I forgot to take a pic before I did anything to it, but you'll get the idea.  It's magnetic.  The ball comes off and so do the antenna's or arms.  Of course, it wasn't painted orange when I got it.  I figure orange is good for most seasons so I can interchange.

The ferrets were enjoying (or not) their little hats I made them.  haha.


officially halloween is tomorrow, Sunday, but Portland did theirs tonight.  I haven't looked forward to h'ween ever!  I've always struggled with it for a few different reasons.  This year though, with Coleman, it's different and it's so great. 

I already know the layout I want to do, but I gotta find Bo Bunny's Whoo-ligans line at the right price.  It's perfect for these pics.

What did I do???

I'm enjoying having Coleman on Wednesdays.  He's 7 months old now, crawling and pulling up on everything.  He's such a good baby and happy. 
I tell ya what though, I can't for the life of me remember what I did with the boys at this age.  Then I remembered, I was still in high school with Dustin, then I went to work after school.  With Austin, he had an older brother to play with him, also, he went to daycare while I was at work. 
Having the walker today really helped.  It contained him while I did other things.  So, I just gotta get used to it and figure out how to make it work 'cause I just love this little guy to pieces and really enjoy having him on Wednesdays.  Won't be long and he'll be walking.  Oh my!  :)
Will have to post pics later.  Off to church, then home to eat something. I'm so hungry!

a great Sunday

Lil Coleman accompanied me to church today.  Then he, gary and I went to my mother-in-law's to watch the Titans game-well, they watched it-I could care less. 
We just had a great time.  He crawled everywhere and seemed to really enjoy Judy's glass table that he could see through. 
We grilled chicken and had dinner by 3:00!  Usually it takes a lonnnnggg time to get the grill right, but not today.  I told Gary I didn't know what we were gonna do later when we were hungry again. haha.
Mom and Trina picked up Coleman on their way home from the game.  Gary and I went to our last descipleship class tonight.  The Case for Christ.  It's been really great.  Cant wait for the next classes to start.
Dustin called tonight.  He's doing well.  I sure miss him.  They're in port just briefly-like a few hours.  I hope he gets to call his dad and some of his friends. 
It's been an all around great day.  I'm so grateful to be grateful, and to be free in Christ.  He is amazing.

Fiska Friends

met with Donna and Regina today who are fellow Fiskateers.  They drove down from WV for a mini vacation.  Little shopping at Joann's and Michael's, then up to Scrappuccino in Greenbrier and lunch with Brandy.  So good to see them again and get to hang out for a bit.

I think the Decongestant I take pretty often for my allergies has dried out my eyeballs.  They burn so badly.  I'm soooo ready to keep them closed for several hours. :)

My Mind's Eye Challenge 16

This is my first sketch challenge that I've actually done.  I have some My Mind's Eye stash and this was a great way to make me use it. 

My niece, Katrina, sent me this pic message one day of Coleman saying "Hi Aunt Stephy".  I love it.  I think this is a good pic from a cell phone. 

I just love our little Coleman.  He will probably never know just how much he is loved.  He's a sweet mess!  :)

Ok, just realized I don't have my camera so I can't download the pic yet to my computer at work.  will post it later OR if you're on my Facebook you can see it there.

been a long time

Goodness, guess I need to keep this up better. I'm just gonna use it mostly for the scrappin' layouts I think.
