Attention Friends and Family!! This is not a dead blog!!

Hi everyone! I know y'all think that my blog is dead, but it really isn't! It is in dire need of resucitation, though.

Right now we're finally moved in to our new house, but since we're living out in the boonies in a new construction, we're having issues getting the internet hooked up at our place, so I happen to be at work today and thought I'd come over and say hi and give an update!

I don't have any new pics to upload, but even if I did, I wouldn't be able to share them here from work. I will really soon, hopefully. The phone company is working on getting service to our house. Another downer for me is that all my scrap stuff is packed in a million different boxes. I can't wait to get my space set up and organized so I can get to scrappin' again!!

I will be off work for the next two weeks because we shut the plant down for summer vacation every year at this time. So you won't be hearing from me until we either get the internet hooked up at home, finally, or I come back to work in 2 weeks- whichever comes first.

Have a safe and happy summer/july fourth weekend!!!

Love you all!

Another Piggy Tales project

Well, the house is just about ready. We're waiting on the plumber to tie the septic to the house. I guess the last thing to do is the toilets- a low priority for men since all they have to do is hang it off the porch! LOL!!!
So for father's day, I made Eric this little beauty:

I chose to take a Piggy Tale's slider and alter it to hang off DH's rear view mirror. I put a little saying on the front beside Connor's picture that says, "Daddy, please remember to drive safely". Then when you slide it open, it says, "My life depends on it"
I used a Crop-a-dile to punch holes and threaded the Pumpkin Eater ribbons through the holes.
It was really easy to do since the package of sliders comes with a transparent template- which makes for perfect placement of the sliders.
Hope you have something great planned for the man/men in your life!!
