Hello friends.  On July 7-11 I attended a Family Reunion on my mother's side of the family.  It was the 30th reunion and there were 178 people in attendance.  It was held in beautiful San Diego, California.  The accomodations and weather were just wonderful. Very nice change from Tucson, AZ.  We had a meet and greet the first nite, a harbor cruise on Friday morning and family dinner that evening.  Saturday was all day picnic and Saturday nite was pizza and game nite.  Sunday we had breakfast, church and business meeting. New officers were voted in and our next site.  My brother is president this round so it will be held in Chicago in two years.  I made a few thank yous for a few folks who contributed to the success of the reunion.  I made them in the family colors (white and maroon) and added pictures from the reunion.  I really like how they came out and hope you do too.  Thanks for looking.

Hi there,  Been real busy so I have not posted much lately.  I will try to do better.  For this post I want to share a Random Act of Kindness swap I joined over at Scraps of Color.  Each person was matched up with a random person and was ask to purchase $20 of goodies.  In addition we had to send a hand made gift.  $20 does not go very far with some of the items of interest, but we made it work. I had so much fun making this package, but more fun painting my ceremic doll.  Before I started paper crafting I use to do ceremics.  I had my own molds, poured, cleaned and fired my stuff.  I had several left over pieces so I wanted to share something different with my partner.  Needless to say, it was her favorite  thing in the package.  Only down side of the swap was the cost of shipping, but it was still my pleasure.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you in some way.
