Thanks, Thanks

Thanks to my trick with the publishing dates, you all have WordArt for the weekend, while I'm off playing! We're Civil War camping this weekend (so hope for nice weather for us!). It's our first of the season, time to see just what we should have done more over the winter! I've been busy sewing the last few days, but should have done more, I'm sure. I guess well find out!!!

I thought that this WordArt would be good for all of you with kids just finishing up the school year, to send in a note for a teacher, or something like that. Or a nice layout with a child and their teacher. I thought that I was a nice quote, and hadn't heard it before.

Thank You, Coach!!!

Yes, my mom always did say that I was an over-achiever. hehehe. Karie had a WordArt request for something to give to her child's baseball coach at the end of the season, and I started to think that there's probably a lot of parents who would love to give a nice card, or page, or something to their children's coaches at the end of the season. So, here's all the sports that I could come up with off the top of my head. Yep, it's all in one download. It was easier for me that way than individually uploading all of them. So, hope you enjoy!!!

Until We Meet Again

After a nice day of rest (if doing school for 5 hours could possible be rest :), I'm feeling much better. My headache is mostly gone, and I'm feeling good :) Trying to get school tied up for the year, and pack for our Civil War weekend. I have to find a sub for my sunday school class (we're gone about 4 Sunday's a year for our re-enactments), make more clothes for the kids, get the trailer licensed, pack food for the weekend, pack up, and all before Friday afternoon. I sure hope I can do it! I made my oldest a new shirt and my 2 youngest new jammie pants today. That's a good start :)

This WordArt request is for Krista. But, after making this WordArt, I debated putting it in the store. It thought it turned out SO nicely. But, I decided to give it to you guys! I made the paper and the little flower things to go along with it, and I might be making more WordArt to go with this theme. Keep an eye out :)

And the Winner IS ......

I really liked your layout! I had my hubby help me pick, and since he got his degree in art (yes, I know, what a USEFUL degree - hehehe), I thought we could put that to good use. He liked the black and white-ness of it, with limited use of color. He liked how the ribbon at the top visually tied in the WordArt at the bottom. We both thought that the photograph was awesome! Wonderful job!!

Just shoot me an email with what product from my store you would like, and I'll send you a coupon code!!! (scraporchard)

And, thanks to everyone who played! Loved all of your layouts, and I think that they really showed how much love we all have for mothers!!!

Remember Moments

So I'm working on my post tonight (remember, auto publish thingy!), and I have a headache that's about to make me puke. Oh wait. There's no food in my belly, cause I just started a new diet! Well, nauseous, anyway. So, I considered just going to bed and letting you all fend for yourself WordArt wise (hehehe), but my conscious got the better of me, and I managed to make one for you all! So, if there's a problem with it, or if there's a typo, or if I misquoted the guy, well, I had a migraine while making it, so I'm excused, right :) hehehe.

This WordArt request is from . I really liked the idea behind it. Moments are so precious and so sweet, aren't they!

Many Hands

So, any Survivor fans out there? I don't get cable, so I just watched the finale last night on the internet. This was my favorite season so far!!! Loved it! I would have liked to see Amanda win, but I guess I was ok with Parvati too. I've been watching Survivor since about season 2 or 3. I SO love TV. hehehe

This WordArt request is from Brenda. She said that her mothers would always say this. And a good wise woman she must be! I say something similar to my kids! Something to the effect that if we all work together, it makes everyone's work easier. This is a very nice way to say it!

Eagle Scouts

So, how was everyone's Mother's Day? Fabulous, I hope!!! I had a nice day, with my kids being very attentive, and loving :) My 10 year old wanted to make sure that I had everything I needed all day long. What a sweet boy! And, we had a family with some teenagers sit by us at church, and help with Jim (2) and Joe (4), so I could actually listen to the talks! My husband sits up front, so some days it's tricky to contain 5 kids for an hour in a pew at church by myself :) But, as my hubby always tells me, I have super mom powers (hehehe).

This WordArt request is from Sharon, and I LOVE the way it turned out! I also made one for "future" eagle scouts, which would apply to ANY boy in scouts. or younger siblings. Heck, I could even make up a page with my daughter at Scouts with this WordArt. Wouldn't that be cute :) Hope all of you enjoy!!!

Marry My Friend

First off, I just wanted to say HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY MOM!!! (I think you read my blog - hehehe) I hope that your day is wonderful, and wish I could be there to enjoy it with ya! And, to my Mother-In-Law Carol, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!! Hope your day is perfect!

I kinda wish that Mother's Day was on a Saturday, because I spend so much of my Sunday at church, that I don't get to slow down and enjoy "my" day. Boy, that sure sounded bratty. hehehe. My husband is in the bishopric (church leadership), and is gone from 7:45am - 3:30pm every Sunday. So, Mother's Day will be me with the kids for the majority of the day. But hey, that's what being a MOM is all about, right!

Funny story, my 10 year old, last night, wanted to know what my favorite breakfast was. Biscuits and Sausage Gravy, I told him. Well, he wanted to cook it for me tomorrow morning. Sweek kid. But really, do I want Biscuits and Sausage Gravy cooked by my 10 year old son, with no supervision. hmmmm. not really. Thanks Jacob, for thinking of me, but I think I'll pass this year! Maybe you and I can cook it together Mother's Day Morning!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there who is a mother!!! You're doing a great thing in being a mother! (not to say that your not doing a great thing if you're not a mother - more than one thing can be great:) Keep up the good work, and know that someone appreciates all that you do!!!

This is a WordArt request from Rian. It's a little bit different look than my normal WordArt, but I think I like it! Hope you do too!
