wanna share some ribbon??

this is the yummmmie new
1/2" stitched-poly ribbon
in the fabulous new {in colors}
blushing bride
peach parfait
poppy parade
concord crush
pear pizzazz
each spool has 15 yards of ribbon and would cost over $50 to purchase all 5 colors.
totally worth it--yes, but that's LOTS of ribbon!!
so my friends, i have decided to try a ribbon share.
now you can try all 5 ribbon colors for only $12.
{shipping is $2 extra}
what you get is:
3 yards of 1/2" stitched-poly ribbon in each color:
blushing bride
peach parfait
poppy parade
concord crush
pear pizzazz
and a bonus of
five assorted 6x6 sheets of designer series paper in each {in color} to perfecty match your ribbon. :)
this ribbon is perfect for your cards, scrapbook pages, gift bags, cello bags and more.
please contact me today if you would like to purchase an {in color} ribbon share pack. i have some available now and will order more as needed in groups of 5, so shipping times of ribbon shares may vary.
thanks for sharing!
let me know if you have any questions!!

it's about time!

yes it is about time! after 24 years together my mom & ted just got married on a beautiful fall day, september 25th, 2010. i might be a little selfish here but i am SO glad i don't have to say this any more when talking about my mom & ted... i'll say: my mom & step-dad ted, well he's not really my step-dad because they are not married {yet} but they have been together for like forever, so i just call him my step-dad. {then i take a moment to breath!} :)

they got married in front of their camper, up north, by the camp fire.

one big family of his & hers

many family members & friends were there to celebrate this joyous occasion! after the wedding was a good old pot-luck reception and later the bar had a band so there was even some dancing going on. {i'm not one to brag, but i hit that keg of 1919 rootbeer pretty hard!} :)
congratulations mom & ted!!
what a glorious day!

here it is...

here is the last page of the pages i made last week. yes, this one features my boys. i made a thank you card using pictures and was SO impressed by it {hehee} that i made a scrapbook page for myself. :) why not, right?

here are the boys & i yesterday at the farm.

here is my fb status from yesterday:

had fun at the {farm} with the boys on their field trip today. but too bad our bus had to turn around and go back to the farm to pick up a class that was left behind. and yes, in that class, that was left at the farm, was my son jabin. my baby was left at the farm. :( i just thought his class was on the other bus. ah, the joys of being a mom. i just ♥ it!!

good times --right!?

a few more highlights & the first day of school...

here are a few more things we did since the last post...

carol asked us to do her a {favor} and pick her raspberries on day when she couldn't. so we picked and we picked and we picked rasberries {we ate quite a few too!} they were good on ice cream and in *this* dessert! and we have quite a few frozen bags to use this winter! grandma linda gave the boys some pumpkin seeds in their easter baskets last spring. so we planted the seeds the first part of june and we have some {HUGE} pumpkins growing in win & jane's garden! we picked two to enjoy at home. one was 36.2 lbs and the other was 39 lbs!!

our last {cousin} day at tina's. it was so fun this summer to get-together at least once a week with the kids! :)

the first day of school! my 2nd graders!! they are so excited for the school year.

greg took the day off to see the boys off, to watch evan say the Pledge of Allegiance over the loud speaker at school, and so he could be here for chocolate chip cookies after school! :)
here is the video of the Pledge of Allegiance...
{if you are getting this post in an e-mail you will have to go to my blog to view the video.}

have a fun day!!

andy :)
