I worked on some children’s greeting cards today to send to Card Care Connection. They are an organization that gives cards to adults and children who are facing cancer and they take donations of homemade cards to give out to cancer patients. This will be my second package to them. You can read more information and how to donate at their website.
I first read about sending cards to hospitals and patients from the blog, Jess Crafts, where I learned to make cards using a 6×6 paper pad. I enjoy watching her videos and reading her posts because she is very easy to understand and very encouraging. These cards were made using the Dino Friends kit from Echo Park.
My favorite picture of the month is my granddaughter, who is now 11 months. She is a joy and we just can’t get enough of her!
Aribelle is now almost 8 months old and she is doing well. She is a joy and every day that we get to see her is a happy day. Being a grammie and grandpa has been the best. I’m thankful to the Lord for her life and pray that she grows up to love and serve Him.
Aribelle is one month old! She is growing fast and looking as sweet as ever. I’m so thankful for her and thankful that I am a “Grammie”.
Our first grandchild, a girl, was born almost a month ago. We are thankful to the Lord for her safe delivery. She is a tiny little thing, weighing in at 5.15 lbs. Michael and I call her “The Bean”. Ever since we saw the first ultrasound that has been her name. Michael is Grandpa and I am Grammie. I don’t know if those names will stick or if she will choose something of her own. I’m fine either way.
I’m thankful that she is close by! My daughter-in-law is very sweet and sends me pictures several times a day. I can’t get enough of that lovely face and I look forward to every visit I have with her. It has been fun to see my son in the role of “dad”. He is very gentle and loving with her as I knew he would be.
In other news, I’ve decided to bring this blog back to life as it first started out: a journal of my life here at home. When I first started, I was a stay-at-home homeschooling mom. Now I’m a stay-at-home wife…and now a Grammie! I’m no longer homeschooling but my days are full, although much quieter.
I hope you’ll join me as I try to be more consistent here. I do miss writing and I feel like Facebook has really taken away a lot of what I used to do here. So, Lord willing, I hope to visit here more often!
