Birthdays


August and September are big birthday months in my family.  I have been busy with some card making.






Dane wanted to make a card during his weekend visit.  I used to have my craft supplies in the laundry room, but earlier this summer I converted Mike's old office into a dedicated craft space. Dane was seeing the transformation for the first time.  His reaction:  "Wow, Grandma, you really girled this place up!"
The distant rumbles were Mike's expression of dismay.

  1. I must confess a certain attraction to the third card down. Two, four, and five are two girled up for my tastes. # 3 a very lovely card.

    1. It's a challenge for me to do the masculine cards, but I keep trying.

  2. So far I have left the den alone but otherwise this place is getting pretty "girled up". I think our Navy men would find it okay if we like it.

  3. Love, love, love the cards!! I, too, have a lot of birthdays this time of year (my own included!) I've been making cards, also. I made a pinwheel card for my son's girlfriend last week, and now I'm working on an engagement card with ribbon and lace. I should photograph them, I guess, for whenever I get this new blog going! Glad you're girling up your workspace! Don't kids cut right to the heart of the matter!

    1. Yes. But when he asked if I knew that there was stuff I could buy that got rid of wrinkles I was considerably less amused.

  4. That Dane, he reminds me of Rylan. Beautiful cards! You and Dane must have had a ball making them.

    1. I love the cards! It's great you have a space for your craft supplies! Helps with the build up in the rest of the house! I need to create a craft room too!

  5. Cute comment by Dane. They notice those things don't they.
    Love your cards. The nautical ones would be perfect for a boatie type guy and that last one is just beautiful.

  6. Those look like they were fun to make! ...although perhaps more exacting than I'd have patience to do. They certainly are pretty!

  8. Chuckled at your post today. Kids say it like it is. Glad you 'girled it up!! Your cards are so pretty, I'm sure the recipients will cherish them. Our family's big birthday months are Oct & Nov. They are not as fortunate to get 'made with love' cards!!!

  13. How just like a kid to come up with a down to earth comment from his heart. The cards are cool. Buddy used to enjoy making them but now has too much pain from arthritis.
