Something Special

Grayson had the most wonderful advisor this year.
I made her a little something:
Patient - Accepting - Thoughtful - Tender - Youthful

 I think that the back looks pretty cool, too......not too messy

This is how I wrapped it up for her - dear Patty.
We learned so much from her this year.....
She showed Grayson and Cullen and myself
such patience, wisdom, love, intuition and
She supported all of our concerns and helped us
figure out our challenges.
We are blessed that she has been so devoted to Grayson...
..... and he to her, as well.

whew - junior year is OVER!

ps. There is a little something over at pantry violets, too

COOL stuff

When I visited my mom over the weekend, 
she told me that she had had a BIG surprise a few days before.

She had opened a box that had been packed up back in December (for her move) and found a package of these napkins, along with a letter and a check (!) from Caspari - a card company she has designed cards with for years. Turns out they found, in a drawer, these little images of soldiers that she had done many years earlier and wrote to ask if they could produce them. She said, "Of course" they did.

These little soldiers were printed up to go to The Royal Wedding!

Imagine her surprise - and thrill!

I think they might be available in regular stores now,
just in case they are calling out to you.
I LOVE how special things seem to come out of the blue sometimes.

love you.....
