What a week....

Hello my sweet friends I have missed you!!

Did you notice I have been gone. I have be off line all
week...  We had a bid of a computer problem... Sometime computers
make me so mad...  But if it weren't for computers, I wouldn't have
all my wonderful friends to chat with..  Yep, I mean you!!

So I am back online!  Well sorta back. I have so much to do 
today and tomorrow I really won't have time to catch up till
Sunday.  And I miss you so..



I have had a pretty busy week..  I have been in my craft room
making little goodies for my daughters baby shower..


Lots of Baby Blue seam binding..


Lace!!




We wrapped up some chocolate bars and made them so pretty!




A whole lot of them..




And we beaded these little necklaces for a fun little game..





Filled some cups full of yummy chocolate..
for our a fun treat to win!!





So I think we are all ready for the big day!


*******

I just have one more photo to show you..
Yes, I just have to brag a little...


My hubby has a little hobby of his own..  Woodworking..
He had mentioned to me that he was going to make our daughter a
 rocking horse..  I about flipped when this is what
he came up with..  Can You believe my Hubby made this..

I just love it.. I think they will also..

 I am so happy my computer finally got fixed. 
It was so strange not to be able to get on line.. In fact at first I was quite mad..
 But then I was so busy getting things done, I really didn't have time to be
to upset..

  I will be back to visit all of you very soon... 


Thank you so much for all your kind comments..

Hugs,  Linda

I had to make my husband come and look at the picture of your husband's amazing creation. He loves woodworking too although he's never attempted anything like this. He told me to keep a picture of it. LOL All YOUR little creations look wonderful too. I'm glad you and your daughter are having so much fun together planning. Have a great rest of the weekend!
