Happy Father's Day

I have so many things I could tell you about my dad and why I love him so much. Aside from the fact that he is my dad and that all children should love their parents. I have to say that what I love the most is the way he builds me up, the way he makes me stronger. If you ask me who my hero is, I will tell you it is my dad. 

My dad is amazing and strong. You should not underestimate him just because he is balding, has gray hair and uses a cane. He turns into a super strong super hero when needed… like when I get stung by a bee. I am allergic to bees and when I get stung I freeze and can’t move. Dad can pick me up and carry me to safety. 

My dad is one of my best friends and has been since… forever. I could and do spend hours talking to him about nothing… that’s why he calls me “Gabby”. Being 2000 miles apart provides some challenges. Challenges we work through by talking on the phone at least once a week. 

I have learned so much from this man and I love him so much.

My First Giveaway!

I know I am so far behind on this. Ever since my vacation in the first week of May I have been so over loaded with things. Job applications for new posistions at work... that I didn't get. Trying to get my house cleaned so we can have someone come in and see whats up with our air conditioner. Trying to spend more quality time with Jeff.

I promised a giveaway would start once I hit 40 followers back in April during my A to Z Challenge to help me get to 50 followers. Well I got to 44 followers... I've lost two of them but we are still on for the giveaway. I will post pictures of the prizes once I get around to loading them on my computer. These prizes are a set of black hot pot holders my sister made just for this giveaway and 8 skeins of yarn I recently got for free! I may even throw in something extra as a surprise! On to the rules!

1. Since my sister, Kari, made one of the give away items, I will ask that you become a follower of her blog  Kari's Kuddly Kreations.
2. You must be a follower of my blog.
3. Leave a comment sharing with me the thing you love the most about your craft and please include your email address so I can reach you if you win.

This giveaway will run until I hit 50 followers, so spread the word!

Happy Birthday.... to ME!

Today I turn 27. Seems like it would be forever before I turned 27 and now its here. 

While I was in Washington, my family threw my sister and I a surprise birthday party at the pizza parlor before Jeff and I went to the airport to come home. I still have a stack of cards sitting in my... one of my... crochet bags. 

Even the cake was pink!

We both bawled like babies... But we had a lot of fun and ate some good pizza. 

Happy Birthday, Sister. I love you!
