2008 Birdie!!

Well, we made it!! 2008...I just had to type it for the 1st time this year. My first birdie for the new year! I had the worse time trying to come up with a good background...still not real happy , I don't think it shows the glass off very well. I'll be putting this on ebay today.

This should prove to be an interesting year for me...I have been contacted by Linda Walsh Originals to be a part of her 100 best blogs, and also Olde Crows Crafting Group...now I need to figure out how to put their banner on my blog.lol.

I cant wait to see my birdies in Somerset "Life" in April, I'm thinking I will need to buy a few extra copies to send to my Aussie friends!!

My daughter will be 26 in March. When did that happen!!! It has been a wonderful 26 years!

It will be so fun to see every ones crafts, I love seeing photos of the goodies found at thrift shops, garage sales, and estate sales and then giving them new life.

I look forward to meeting new blogging gals!
I am sitting here watching the Rose Parade, it brings back such memories, we lived a couple blocks down Orange Grove, the floats are amazing!

My hubby and daughter and I are planning a road trip to Pasadena Ca this spring...Dean hasn't been back since we left...11 years, he grew up there, I know a LOT has changed, I think it will be hard on him...the plan is for him to meet up with some old friends...Stacey and I just plan on traveling around and taking a lot of photos...She lived in Laguna Beach for a year as a nanny, I have never seen the area, so she wants to show me.

It should be a verrrrrry interesting year...(maybe I should change my banner...its a bit old!)

What a cute 2008 bird!
Sounds like a fun trip you are planning.
It is amazing how quickly time passes and our children grow up and before we know it become adults.
Happy New Year.
