These birthday gift tags and coordinating box were so much fun to make! I got the idea for the box of tags from Kadie Labadie. Here’s the link to Kadie’s instructions for the box.
Isn’t it adorable?! Thanks Kadie for the directions!
I hope you’re not tired of seeing my display stamper projects. Hopefully you’re convinced that you need the Balloon Adventures and coordinating Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits Dies?!
Abby and Keegan spent a couple hours this afternoon at a local senior living facility helping senior citizens with their technology. I can’t remember if I’ve told you that for Abby’s Senior Honors project she started an organization called Tech Support for Seniors. She’s recruited high school students and most every Saturday they visit a senior facility and give free help to the residents. Some Saturdays they go one place in the morning and another place in the afternoon. The most common request they get is, “How do I connect to the wifi?” The high school students earn “silver cord hours” or volunteer hours. The senior citizens get to meet some really neat kids and get help with their cell phones, ipads etc. Abby has gotten some really sweet emails from people who appreciated the help they received.
While Abby and Keegan were gone, Superman and I tackled putting together our very tall Christmas tree. After the entire tree was in place, Steve decided it wasn’t stable, so we ended up picking the whole tree up out of the stand. It was going to be my job to hold the tree while he fixed the stand. However, the “tree trunk” is in two pieces and came apart unexpectedly. I believe if we had been filming this ordeal you would be laughing hysterically right now. Some how after much maneuvering the tree is back in the stand and pretty much standing up straight. I’ll let you know if it falls over during the night. Our next step is lights and ornaments. I wanted to mention to Superman that I would like to also put a tree up in the new Sun room, but after 30 years of marriage I decided timing is everything and I’ll wait to make that request at a later date.
Hope you’re having a good weekend. Please comment at the top of this post and let me know what Christmas preparations you have done.
