Notice my cute flip flop jammies :).
I made this for Angie's "surprise" bridal shower and its out of an empty paper towel roll. I posted directions in an earlier post. What I have to say is you should use the sticky tape when adding the paper to the paper towel roll. The first one I did I used my Duck 2sided tape but that did not hold and I tried the sticky tape that comes on a red roll works much better!! I also made Angie a wedding ATC. Isn't it cute? LOL

I have had a few people asking me how I added the watermark to my photos. First, I went to this blog and paid Karen $2 for each watermark. I bought 2. I have a different one for each blog. I do not have Photoshop Elements so I had to download a free photo editing program called Gimp and I found that here. It took me some playing around but I finally got it to work!! I also have Picasa 3.0 and Infanview photo editing programs which I downloaded free from the internet but I could not get the watermark to download with those. Karen is super nice to work with and she answers emails pretty fast. Thanks Karen! You're the best!!

I had these silhouettes done of the kids in 1996. I saw an ad in the paper that they were going to be doing this at Burdines or Dillards or some department store so I took the kids and had them done. Both look EXACTLY like them and this is one of my favorite pictures hanging outside my stamp room.

yesterday. Her mom called me at 11:15 pm, woke me up to tell me (she was so happy she wanted to tell someone! HA) and then I couldn't go back to sleep! I finally did of course, after wanting to text all my Shackie friends but I stayed in bed and eventually did go back to sleep. LOL
CONGRATS TO ANGIE AND KERRY!! BTW, Angie ... what's your new last name?

and that was almost 17 years ago (we'll be celebrating our 18th year on May 14th). This hangs in our livingroom. We were married on Magen's Bay in St. Thomas.

Charlie is having a torn rotator cuff repaired on Thursday. We have to be at the surgery center by 5:45 am which means we will leave around 5:30. He's the first surgery of the day and we should be home between 11-12. He can't eat after midnight and this is what he had.

All of our neighbors put up their hummingbird feeders today so that means I do too. I love watching them in the summer!! I took this photo of this hummingbird in Charlie's hand last year. It had flown into the garage and could not figure out how to get out. We put up the hummingbird feeder in the garage and he finally came down to get a drink and Charlie swooped him up in his hand. Somehow I managed to get this shot. Pretty neat huh?
I don't buy those expensive red hummingbird foods in the store, I make my own and here is the recipe:
1 cup sugar
4 cups water
Stir ingredients together in small pan. Boil together for 1 minute. Let cool. This makes alot so I add it to the feeder, then put the rest in the refrigerator. Be sure to change it every few days when it gets hot outside. I have always had ALOT of hummingbirds and can't wait to see my first one in a couple of days.
