Busy Times in Life

I've decided to stop apologizing every time I finally get around to posting here!  LOL  (sorry)  Life is busy---it's that way for most everyone. 
We have another high school graduate in our family, Linds graduated and we are in the process of trying to get the house and yard straightened up for the "big Grad party"!  OMGosh, I have totally let things slide while dealing with my health junk over the last couple years and this is no small feat. 

 My darling sis-in-law's--Anita and Micki--have come to my rescue and are giving my yard a makeover.  I cannot believe the magic they are working out there.  I'm so grateful!!!  I'll share pictures once they are finished. 

Joe started college at the beginning of June.  The college he is going to is only a couple miles away from our home, so we still have him here (I'm so glad!).

I haven't done a whole lot of crafting lately, but have managed to make a few cute things! 

This is a pretty collaged key safe---there are 10 hooks inside for keeping all those extra keys organized. 

And this is just a sweet little greeting card.

Totally annoying how the picture management on these blogs are now---what a pain in the rump!  Is there a trick to this that I haven't figured out yet?  It's really taking all the fun out of blogging.
