My Husbands mom was on her way with his 10 year old sister to Fargo ND on a train Thursday night Friday morning and had a stroke. She had a bleed in her brain and had surgery Saturday the 24th. One of Steve's brothers flew into Spokane and him and Steve left Spokane at 11pm the 24th. and started the long drive to Fargo. the last update I had was at 11:15 the 25th that they had good roads and they were 530 miles out. Joan's surgery went good but they are not going to take the ventilator tomorrow sometime. The kids and I had a very different Christmas without Steve. but we are making the best of a bad event. we are saving the turkey for when Steve gets back and made home make pizza. Please keep us in your prayers. Steve will be bringing his sister back to go to school and will will have a small one in our house again.
Oh but did find some time to make Deanna my oldest her cup. I am glad that her and the grand kids are here for the weekend.
Made this decal for a friend she is giving it to her nice. I cut it out of crome colored vinyl. I hope there is someone else who can use it. Please leave comment or even a tip for the cut files would be nice.
We had a Sushi party last weekend and had a GREAT time! We did California rolls, Spicy Tuna, and Spicy crab rolls. so I needed to make a SVG for it but I have not cut it out yet. but wanted to get it posted. And I have a friend that is having a birthday and she is a music teacher so I also posted her card and SVG. Enjoy
I went to the Tri-Citys (about a 2 hour drive from Spokane.) for a scrapbooking weekend. I have been so STRESSED at work for the last 3 weeks. Our corporate office came in and fired two more people and so now the three of us that are left are doing more work and no pay raise. I have not had time to do any thing in my crafting world becouse by the time I get home I just want to go to bed. But I did have a GREAT weekend! I got 40 pages done in my 2008 book. 2008 was the last year with my dad it is now 2 books thick and I am only in Aug. Here are some of my favorite pages. I have some cut files already posted but have a few more but can't find my thumb drive will post them as soon as I find it. thanks for stoping by.sorry the photos are not that great I took my my phone.
My three sisters and parents rented a house boat on Lake Roservelt and we joined them in our boat for a week. the houseboat had a hot tub on the top.
My youngest turned 15 that year so we had a beach party theme.

And here is my FAVORITE page of the weekend!
I love how it turned out. I cut out all the small squares and then added the photos behind and then cut out the lines over the photos that I wanted to show more.
We are Annel and Steve Dickson, We are high school sweethearts. We have raised two wonderful girls and have three grandchildren. But we have a dream to live full-time on a boat. This is our story of how we make this happen.
