My sweet daughter Abby is just a few short months from her high school graduation. It looks like she will be going to the University of Iowa in the Fall. Since Superman and I graduated from there, we are pretty excited about her choice. 🙂 When I saw the Global Design Challenge for this week was Delightful Dijon, Silver and a color of my choice, the first thing I thought of was to add Basic Black for my Free Choice and we’d have Iowa Hawkeye Colors!
I love that this calendar is a regular A2 card with the support added. The base is 4-1/4″ x 11 and scored at 5-1/2″. The support is 4-1/4″ x 5″ and scored at 1″, 2-1/2″, and 4″. You can see in the picture below how the support works. The idea and directions for this calendar came from Jeanie Stark at Just Stampin’. Thanks Jeanie!
I’m also a designer at Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog this week. Our challenge was to use at least three different coordinating designer series papers. I actually was able to get four of the Stampin’ Up! Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper on this calendar. I also used the star from the Urban Underground Embellishments.
Keegan sang with his Jazz group on Saturday and they did a great job! Superman and I love going to his jazz performances. Abby and some of her friends helped 15 seniors with their technology on Saturday morning. Right now we are having an ice storm. It just started a couple hours ago and I would’ve fallen on the deck when I took the pups out, if I hadn’t been so careful. I hope the story will be the same when the ice is over and gone. I think the hospitals will be busy the next couple days.
So I’ve told you before that Superman and I have been married for 30 years and I think he’s pretty awesome! Not sure if I’ve told you he makes me guacamole a couple times almost every week. Yep, he works hard to be worthy of his Superman name! Tonight it was so good I had to take a picture of it. Keegan has decided he wants to be a good cook with a few selective menu items. He made each of us a breakfast burrito. They were pretty awesome too. It used to be Keegan refused to eat eggs. Now that he’s making his own, he loves them!
We had two more water incidents this week, neither of which was my fault. I say that because the first major incident in December when the whole basement flooded was pretty much my fault. Here’s a picture of water issue #4. When the plumber came and fixed the sump pump again (water issue #3) they turned on the water to the outside irrigation system and caused water issue #4. This picture was taken way before the ice storm arrived. We went 25 years without a water issue so I’m hoping with four water issues in the last couple weeks we are done. At least this last one didn’t get the basement wet.
