What makes a Happy Home? I love to take care of my family. For me, creating a home that is warm and inviting, where everyone feels welcome is pure joy! The smell of fresh laundry just in off the clothesline, a neat and tidy home and garden, a good home cooked meal, a few desserts here and there, the love of family, friends and fellowship all help to make our home a Happy Home. Join me as we celebrate the holidays, the birthdays and the every days!

Handmade Graduation Card
I can't believe that May is over. Our Memorial Day weekend was pretty relaxing. It started a little early for me - our company closed at 3pm on Friday as a surprise! Yeah!!! Saturday we got up around 6am (trying to beat the heat) and headed to Renninger's in Kutztown. There weren't that many vendors there, but I did get a hot dog with sauerkraut for breakfast:)
From there we headed to Shupp's Grove in Adamstown and I got a few small things to create with. Honestly, there weren't that many vendors there either. We thought a holiday weekend would be packed, but I guess not.
We were home by noon and got some yard work, housework and grocery shopping done. Sunday, my brother invited us up for ribs - yumm! He makes the best ribs. I made a big pan of mac and cheese to go with the ribs and a blueberry crumb cheesecake for dessert.
Monday we just putzed around here and there - nothing special. I cleaned my studio and got my swap together for Jane. I'm hoping to get it in the mail today. I'll share photos later this week of what I'm sending.
Oh, if you're wondering about the card in the photos, Tom asked me to make a graduation card for him. The 3-d medallion on the front made it impossible to fit into a regular envelope so I created a gusseted pocket.
How did you spend the holiday?
