right on time...

Just popping in to share a fun little project I created recently. Seth LOVES Thomas the Tank Engine...he's basically inherited Josh's trains and built upon the collection. Zach loves them too, but Seth tries to keep them as far away from Zach as possible. Anyway, I made this little clock to hang in the boy's room. It's just one of those cheapie clocks from Wal*Mart with some Thomas paper added to the back. I took pictures of his trains and made them into tags with the Making Memories tag maker (LOVE that thing!) to replace the numbers. Seth loves it...he doesn't really care about telling time, obviously, but it's a fun little addition to his room. :o)
In other news...Brad's having his turn with being sick. I hate when he's sick enough to actually admit it to me (you know he's sick if he's admitting it -- usually he's just stubborn and won't even tell me that he isn't feeling well). He's trying to rest, but the kids are all over him - they just love him so much they can't stay away.
We took my wedding ring to a jeweler today to get an estimate to get it fixed. It's a long, sad story, but to sum it up quickly...for our 10th wedding anniversary we bought a band with diamonds to add to my engagement/wedding ring. The jeweler basically trashed my ring. I won't even go into details, but today the jeweler just kept saying she couldn't believe someone could do all of this and it's about the worst job she's ever seen. nice. So hopefully I'll be getting it all spiffed up soon. We're going to get a few more estimates...I need to remember to take some before and after photos (even though the thoughts of the current state of my ring make me so sad...) If any of you local readers know of a GOOD, reputable jeweler, please let me know!


  1. The clock is SO CUTE! My little guy is pretty obsessed with Thomas and the gang. So sorry to hear about your sick hubby. I can't believe the jeweler trashed your ring and didn't offer to re-do it. Keep us posted!

  2. If you are in the Provo area Goldsmith Jewlers are GREAT. They have on site jewlers so you don't have to worry about it being sent out.. They custom made my ring. Hope this helps. Judi from Lehi
