busy day...

I feel like we can get back into the swing of "normal life" again now. That means I have a list about a mile long of things I need to do. I am so grateful to work with the amazing companies I work with...some of which have granted me deadline extensions for my work that was due the first part of this week - allowing me to keep my stress at a manageable level - thank you for that! I also have plenty of house/wife/mom stuff that I've fallen behind on...and the list goes on.

Anyway... I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone who has been so kind and thoughtful toward me and my family over the past week...we all appreciate it so much.

Really quickly, before I start on my list again, I thought I'd share this layout I created a few weeks ago. It's very similar to this card, made with Making Memories Paperie products, and featuring my sweet girl...who is, indeed, both smart and beautiful. These pictures were taken when she brought home her Promotion Certificate last May - an official Elementary School Grad! :o)


She has been working so hard throughout the first term of sixth grade to get good grades. When she brought her report card home, she proudly showed me...All A's and one A-, and all of her citizenship grades were H's (Honor). She's been dealing with some not-so-fun issues the last few months and missed a lot of school at the beginning of the term. I am so proud of her for working hard...with her academics as well as the emotional "issues" she's working through - she is a smart, friendly, sweet little girl and I love her so much!


  1. Hello Wendy,
    I just read the newspaper today, I am thinking of you and your family.

    My sincere condolences, those are beautiful photos and stories you’ve shared about your grandma.

    You have such a cute daughter, that is great that she is striving to do so well. You’re a good Mom to record all her successes.

    Have a good week!

  2. what a great layout wendy! and you have an amazingly beautiful daughter! i know it's been a rough time for her lately ... but sounds like she's doing better. and having an excellent report card has to feel good ... to see her hard work paying off!
