I'm going to Oklahoma soon to see Gabriel. I'm really excited! Tammy and I will find a scrapbook store, too, and work on a special book for our little guy. Can you imagine that? I'm such a nut for paper that even in Oklahoma, I'm going scrapbooking! LOL!! Actually, Tammy started me on it...she made a wedding album for a friend, and I watched in amazement, it turned out beautifully. The seed was planted then, I think. About two years later, I was doing ATCs...and that's that. I have a picture of Gabriel..I hope it will post properly.

Gabriel Riley!

My grandson was born on Earth Day! His dad is a public horticulturalist! Pretty cool, eh? Plus, Gabriel is a is daddy and grandma! LOL! My mom quickly pointed out that meant three bullies! And that I was colicky, as was my son and now let's hope Gabriel breaks that tradition! Time will tell....

April 20th - Today my first grandson is due...but I guess he'll come when he's ready. My son and daughter in law are in Oklahoma. I know Tammy is ready for Gabriel Riley to make his grand entrance. I'll be going out to OK in May, my first visit there. We're all excited! I've been trying to get some art done while waiting, and I'm going to try to start a special book for thinking of things for it...I'm really not much of a scrapbooker, but maybe now, with two grandchildren, I'd better kick it into gear!

I have gotten into Moo cards. At Paper Whimsy, we're creating Moos by month by color. April is Green, so here are my green Moos!

Creating a Pendant

I tried my hand at making a pendant using a bamboo tile. I wrapped it with a piece of sheet music, brushed it with some ink and found a vintage image I liked. A few small Swarovski crystals and some paper flowers, then the beads...and there's the pendant. Do I want to get into beading...well, that remains to be seen. There's lots of pretty things to make, but I still like paper too much to stray far.
