This is an easy question for me because of a gift my girls got when they were very young.

I'm sorry I've been ignoring you this week. It's been very busy around here. So far this week I have cleaned out the shed, washed my new car by hand, designed and created 35 invitations for the preschool department at church, created, designed and put together 400 matchbook mint wrappers and now I am painting the livingroom. Well, I haven't actually been painting. I have been assisting Katy while she painted. Tomorrow is haircut, shopping, lunch day so you will have to wait again. I promise when I get the house back together I will try and do a better job of keeping up with you.

In my younger years, I bought a LOT of shoes. In fact, for about 20 years I bought a LOT of shoes! These days I am careful to only buy shoes that make my feet feel good.
I live in a smaller town. Until recently we didn't have much name brand shopping. I am really enjoying all of our new stores. Almost NO reason now to have to fight the traffic in the big city!
Love Kohl's. Love all their discount coupons! Hate the fact that you have to use a Kohl's charge card to get them!

My daughter, Becky is the maid of honor at her best friend's wedding. We are planning a shower for her. The bride has an Etsy shop where she sells headbands, hair clips, ear rings, etc. made out of yoyo "posies". We thought it would be fun to create an assortment of these hair accessories in the shower colors to use as favors.

I am the church librarian. I love to read so it is a perfect volunteer job for me! It means I get first pick of the books as they come in! I love to order new books....I do, however have a hard time keeping up with processing them! Do you know that there are 19 steps to processing a book once you get it? Today I spent 5 hours and worked my way through one of those tall stacks of books. My goal is to spend a few hours every morning until I get them finished.
I love our library. I think we are really blessed to have it! It is L shaped and used to be 3 very small Sunday School rooms. They were mostly being used for storage because of their small size. A re-model was done and the rooms were connected. My desk is in the corner and these 2 pictures look out both directions from my desk. A senior adult ladies class meets in there on Sunday.

This "little guy" was walking across our path on the way to the room the last night! While I know tarantulas are not dangerous, they sure are scary looking! Picture is a little blurry because by the time Katy (the only one brave enough to go back) went back to take it, the little guy was trying to escape over the wall.
