Parties Galore

How's everyone doing? It's really something when the 4th of July falls midweek huh?! LOL I've been wandering around Blogland and it looks like everyone had a wonderful time!

Us too--yup! another party. You know, I'm not whining *much*, and I really consider myself blessed to be a part of such a big and loving family--BUT how much potato salad and jello can a person eat before they blow up??! HUH? We have had parties every weekend since Memorial Day, plus our wedding and a mid-week 4th bash! :-D Ok--I'm just joking around here--we've been having a really lovely and fun summer and I've never eaten so well in my whole life!

Now today we have a funeral to go to (I feel so sad and strange about this one--it's for an old friend of mine who I used to spend a lot of time with, but had fallen out of touch with over the last 15 years, and I am feeling guilty and sad that I didn't take the time to keep in touch with him)--and of course there will be eating afterwards--and tomorrow we have a big family BBQ at my Aunt's to celebrate her son's retirement from the Navy! I haven't seen my cousin since he joined the Navy back when he was just out of high school (20 years ago!) He worked his way up to some secret sector of the navy and even my Aunt didn't know where he was most of the time. It has been quite worrisome for her over the years and she is quite relieved to know that he will be done with it now. Next weekend we have a party at my cousin's to send off her son--he is being shipped off to Iraq. I'd appreciate it if you would keep him in your prayers.

I've been trying to get down and get a little *LITTLE* crafting done, but have only managed to get a couple of these little wallets made (I can't help it, I just think they are sooo cute!) They are listed in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested.

Oh, and some more of these bird tags--this batch in a cute purple paper.

I also belong to an Etsy bloggers group and they have challenged us to do a blog entry on the color orange (you know, ETSY orange!). Well...ok. I've discovered something about myself that I didn't even know--I really don't do orange! I looked through months and months of pics to try and find some craft that I made with orange and only found this one needlebook from back in August of last year! I really like all colors--I think they are all pretty in their own way, but I think if I had to pick a color that I like the least, it would have to be orange. I don't even have any orange stuff in my home. Hm. I am going to purposefully make something orange in the near future, just because.

Those wallets are sooo cute! I might just have to get one of those.
I couldn't help but laugh about the 'how much jello etc. can a person eat' statement. I know what you mean, but it's wonderful that ya'll celebrate like you do.
And thank you for your recent comments on my blog. I do appreciate it. Now - go party hardy!

I think your orange contribution is just lovely! Your blog colors are vibrant too!

Ha ! That's funny I use to never use any orange. Then I went through a big orange phase a couple of years ago, and now I like it more.
Your birdie stuff is so sweet! I love them!

MY son's favorite color is orange. Silly boy! I'm with you on the party thing...I am always the one who gets elected to make the potato salad and I am tired of it. LOL
