Hi again everyone and happy new year etc

Pin It
Its been a while since Ive posted and for good reasons. Ive spent this past month or so just loving being with my family! haven't made one card or even looked at my stuff! woooow HOOOOw.
Me and my twin sister recently turned 40 early Jan and that was a blast! although i havent made anything in the way of a card ive have kept my fingers busy with some paintings....this one i did for my twin sister for her 40th......

and then i made these for our own wall. each one stands about 1/2 a meter high and has the meaning of our names on them....i was really pleased how they turned out.

and heres a pic from my party...i had so much fun.........

I know this post is short but there's still some holiday time left for me!!! the kids are all off to summer camps this week with Beth singing in the youth band for we get to spend the last bit with just Dave and Me ...will be nice!! but i would like to leave you with this verse that has had special meaning to me over the holidays..........Valita

and a last thought

I have loved you, Oh my people,
with an everlasting love; with
loving kindness i have drawn you to me.
Jeremiah 31:3

I am 'brand' new to your blog and lovin' it.
Enjoyed how you shared your 40h with your twin. I lost my twin sister to cancer at the age of 48 yrs. She was the first to call me on our birthdays. Even when I tried, I was never able to make the first contact. I really miss her. When one is a twin, we never - ever think of who goes first.
It's sad - especially for my mother.
Talk to you again soon.

Happy Belated Birthday! How fun that you're a twin -- my cousin and I always pretended that we were twins when we were young. Like the others, I have missed you! Just this morning, I was wondering if I had accidentally deleted myself as one of your blog readers. I'm very happy to find out that I hadn't. Funny to think that you're in the midst of summer vacation -- here in Missouri, USA it's anything BUT summer! B-r-r-r-r! Again, I'm glad you're having such a great month! LuRae
