It's been a big week in our little part of the world.
The kids graduated from Pre-K on Tuesday. WooHoo!
Oh, you would have thought they were graduating from college the way I carried on. But it was so cute, all these little ones singing their songs, lining up to accept their little diplomas. I wish I could freeze time right now. I know in a heartbeat it will be high school or college, & I'll think back on the day they were 4.
Wednesday was this little guys birthday. You think my kids look just like their Daddy or what?? I'll bet my MIL looks at this picture & remembers it like it was yesterday. She made his sweet little shirt.
Since my thoughts have been on wee ones all week, I spent some time sorting through my cabinet cards. I picked out some favorites to share with you.
I know everyone loves the sweet babies & girls, but I'm crazy about the boys. Look at his boots, toes all scuffed up. Probably wishing his Mommy hadn't made him dress up in this outfit & stand still for an hour.
This is one of the first I ever bought, ages ago. I've digitally altered it , transferred it, photocopied it. He has been a focal point in many projects. Doesn't he look like a little magician?
Since I have my own sweet girl, I had to include little sassy pants! That attitude, love it! Lily gives me this same look all of the time.
I'm putting these, & more of my favorites in my shop, under 'Free Stuff'.
Speaking of my shop, thank you SO much for supporting me in my new venture. I never expected to sell so much. I'm hard at work listing & creating more goodies.
Here's a peak at a collage I'm working on.
You might recognize the image from Dawn's post earlier this week.
And speaking of busy weeks & blog-shops, one of my dear friends Rebecca has a lot to celebrate. Her amazing, & I mean AMAZING studio is featured this month in Where Women Create. She also opened her new blog-shop & it's packed full of wonderful things. Not only is she mega talented, & owns her dream store, but she's gorgeous.
If you go check her out you can enter her new giveaway.
And another beautiful, talented friend is having a giveback,
Shelley, is celebrating 200 posts by giving away some serious treats!
I just love Shelley's blog so much, she is one of my first blog crushes. You know how you look at blogs & they're beautiful, & then you see a blog that just stops you dead in your tracks. It just screams 'YES'! That's Shelley for me. I'm going to Round Top in the fall & one of the main reasons is to see her amazing talent in person.
Last, but certainly not least I gotta shout out to my girl Karen!
When I opened up WWC & saw her face looking at me from the pages of this amazing publication, I got chills! I am sooooo happy for her. It's hard to believe that Karen just started her blog a little over a year ago, look how far she's come. Magazines, killer blog parties, Jo's number in her cell phone (LOL), a new business. What a great example of how blogging can change your life. Karen is the most genuine, funny & generous friend a girl could ask for, & I'm thrilled for her.
I've been looking forward to this blog party for a year now (I wasn't blogging last year). I'm fluffing & foofin' away so I can show off my little space in June.
