Getting ready for Spring

We picked up the border for my new flower beds this week. I can't wait to finish pulling up the grass to start putting them in. Then I get to pick out all my plants and flowers. I already visited Home Depot and Lowes to eye some choices.
Tonight I finished up these 2 springtime cards for the kids easter baskets. Stephanie asked if we could make 19 for her class and teacher. I said " How about one for the teacher and we will get the rest of the class some spring themed pencils. She was pleased with that.
Within the next 3 days I have to head over to my friend Shays because she is going to loan me some of her stamps to do some more cards. My next project is Birthday cards. more to come .....

Can't believe I haven't had any crafty finishes

So I haven't been stitching, or scrapbooking, or beading BUT I have been gardening lol. We finally got the giant queen palm tree in our front yard cut down. Harry (my husband) told me to make sure I don't pull in the wrong driveway now. Listen I only did that once and it was when we bought the house lol.

I tore out a large 4'x6' patch of grass to start the new plant bed. While out there working my behind off the neighbors seemed to be interested in why my front yard was being rearranged lol. One came over and asked what I was doing I told her my plans and she said will I come design hers next. I laughed then realized she was serious lol.

I also took some new pictures of the kids while they were riding their scooters in the front yard last weekend. They are growing so fast. I took some pictures of the neighbors DD and now she has hired me to do a family picture of her and her daughter. I am excited as it is my 3rd paid Photography job.

Shay and I also did some mad Geocaching last week. On Monday we got 15 and on Thursday we got 20. I wanted to go tomorrow but my allergies have gone crazy and I don"t think it would be wise to go trekking through the woods lol.
