BEE PARTY #9

Happy Monday! This last weekend was crazy at our house. My husband's 40th birthday fell on the same day as Easter, so we had an extra big celebration. Right in the middle of it all, our 10 year old daughter was twirling in her new dress, tripped, and fell backwards, breaking her arm.  I spent the afternoon in the Insta-Care getting x-rays. (She is going to be fine, although she will be sporting a cast for several weeks.) Who knew twirling in your dress could be so hazardous? 😉We are so grateful for the medical professionals who give up holidays with their families so they can help those that are sick and hurt. 

Looking through your projects every week is such a source of joy for me. I love all the creativity floating around out there. Thanks for sharing with me! I really appreciate your help in making this party a success, too, so please keep coming back and invite your friends; share via social media.

Most Favorite Person Ever... {Frame it! Friday}

Most favorite printable

My husband celebrates his 40th birthday in 2 days. (Yes, that's on Easter this year!) Today is also a special day for us; 18 years ago on April 14 we got engaged. He always said I'm the "gift he gave himself." He is my best friend, a great father, and the person I hope to have wheel chair races in the nursing home with... basically he's my most favorite person ever. Which is why this week's {Frame it! Friday} is dedicated to him. Happy Birthday/Easter, sweetheart! 

As always, these printables are free, simply print frame and enjoy! Have a great weekend.

BEE PARTY #8

My Busy Beehive's #beeparty #8. Features.

Last week was crazy at my house. It was Spring Break and I had all six kids at home by myself (since their dad was out of town on business for the entire week).  The weather was anything but Spring-like, so we spent a lot of time inside trying to think of fun things to do. When I wasn't trying to calm the whirlwind that is my children I enjoyed looking through your projects.  
A great big thank you to everyone who is supporting this link up and who returns every week to share their ideas, thoughts and projects. I really appreciate your help in making this party a success, so please keep coming back and invite your friends; share via social media.

Smile... {Frame it! Friday}

Smile... it makes people wonder what you're up to.

Smiling.
Doesn't it just make your day when someone smiles at you? Are you having a rough time and need a reason to smile? Maybe this saying will help. It's one of my favorites.

 "Smile... it makes people wonder what you're up to." 

Obviously, if we dig a little deeper, and take a few minutes to count our blessings, finding a reason to smile shouldn't be all that difficult. (I highly recommend you do that, it's always a good idea to practice being thankful, it can really change our outlook on life!) 

I really like the idea that I can smile for no other reason than because I may be "up to something". Maybe I like the hint of mystery and intrigue. Maybe I don't want others to think I'm too predictible. Maybe I just like to keep people guessing. Or maybe it's just really, really fun to smile at people and let them wonder why. Sometimes, you even get a smile back, which is a beautifully contagious thing.(It really IS fun, you should try it!) 

This week's {Frame it! Friday} is dedicated to all those who need a smile; both those who are smiling at others, and those being smiled at. :)  Have a great weekend, and remenber that this printable is free, so simply print, frame, and enjoy. See you next week. Happy Smiling.
