My way of keeping in touch with my "out of state family" with pictures, scrapbook pages, lots of genealogy information and LIFE in general.

AFGHANISTAN BOUND :(
Well TODAY is the DAY! Justin, my 20 year old grandson, left for AFGHANISTAN this morning. He is with 1800 other young MARINES going over there to this war and will spend their first night in Germany. He told me he had been trained by the BEST and had 45 of the BEST MARINES in his patroon, so not to worry. In his own words "THIS COUNTRY BOY WILL SURVIVE".

I love genealogy, painting and scrapbooking. I taught painting classes and did craft shows for more years than I can count. I have scraped for over 12 years. I started digital scrapping about five years ago and love it. We have a half-dozen grandkids and I am always snagging their pictures off their "FaceBook" to scrap. My daughter "Suzie" takes beautiful photo's that I try my best to snag for scrapping. I also love all things Americana, Shabby Chic, Vintage and Gently Worn. We both love to visit Thrift Stores and Flea Markets almost every week-end. The one thing I Hate to do is cook. But hubby spoils me by being a great cook and doing it all, even the grocery shopping. The kitchen is his and that is find with me. One of my favorite quotes is: "You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suite me. by ~ C.S. Lewis~
