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!

In the Studio
Even though there are still things that need to be tended to downstairs I decided to come up to the studio for a bit. It actually gave me some inspiration for a post. As I frantically finished the scrapbooks for the guys I didn't clean up as a I went along so the studio is somewhat neglected. My desktop is a complete mess. I'll need to sort and put things away before I begin any new projects.
I have a lot of cards to make for birthdays this month and thank yous that are overdue from Christmas so this has to be a priority tonight.
As I was snapping away I noticed that I have a lot of pink in here - no surprises there right? And no, I haven't been making Valentine's yet - this is just where the ones that didn't get finished in time for last year landed.
I liked how they looked so I kept them up all year. It adds romance to the "scary man" as all the kids refer to him. They all think he's creepy. I kinda like him, but wouldn't mind putting a piece of chalkboard into the frame either.
Mr OP turns 50 this year and doesn't want a big fuss made. So I'm thinking that 50 days before his big day that I'll start giving him small presents - 1each day.
When I say small I'm talking a box of raisinets, a fishing magnet, things that he likes but aren't a lot of money. Or anything 50 or 1962 related, so if you have any ideas I'd love to hear them. I just want to make the time leading up to the big day fun! I have a few ideas for the big day mulling around but no party - that's a definite NO.
I'm playing along with Beverly's Pink Saturday this week. With so much pink in this post how could I not. Enjoy your weekend sweet friends!
