STB & CC ~ I'm Back!!!

Oh My Goodness...where do I even begin...I haven't posted since August????  So much has happened and I don't want to bore you to tears, so here is a VERY short version of what life has been like for us!!! We moved AGAIN, yup...loved the condo, but it just wasn't 'us'...we have 8 grandchildren, what were we thinking!!! So we are back in a smaller home in a 'condo' neighbourhood! Back in the country/sub-burbs, where we belong....and....LOVE it!!!!

I have hosted two classes since we've been here and it's amazing to have room once again...and a ROOM!!! I'll take pics on a later post, but for now, I just want to get this out there!  We created this card last night and I had a blast!!!
