Hey friends! I don't know what I was thinking. Obviously I wasn't. Anyhoo, it's time to sign up for the June OCS! You all know the drill: If you want to play in the swap for June, leave a comment on THIS POST. THE DEADLINE TO SIGN UP FOR THE SWAP IS MAY 30th. If this is your first time playing, please leave a comment on this post, AND send me an e-mail with your full name, mailing address and blog address (if applicable).

For this month's OCS, I thought I'd have a "requirement". Don't worry, it's nothing difficult! For your partner's card, use something that is a FAVORITE of yours. It could be your favorite color, favorite image, favorite embellie, whatever you like the best. I hope this "requirement" will help you with your card design! I'm looking forward to seeing all the returning players and hopefully some new ones as well! Enjoy your weekend!
P.S. to my May OCS partner, Mary B.: I'll be sending your card out very soon ... thanks for your patience! I received your beautiful card and will be posting it shortly. Thanks Mary!

Nothing crafty today ... but the BIG day is finally here!

Happy Aloha Friday everyone! It's been a while since I've posted anything, but hopefully I'll get back to it soon. Thanks for following me and being patient. Today is the day my son graduates from high school. Lots of mixed emotions flowing through me and my family. Excitement, worry, joy, anticipation ... because my son has had his fair share and more of difficulties during his short life, this day is such a blessing to us. My son has been the victim of bullying since he was in the first grade. This followed him all through his school years, even as recent as last month. It's been a very difficult and extremely long journey for him and even more so for me as his mother. Seeing your child so broken and hurt is something I hope none of you mothers will experience. But I guess, that's life. God has been a huge part of my life and I wouldn't have made it without him. My son is finally starting to realize that God is there for him as well, and has been with him during all those difficult moments.

I'm off to start our busy day and night. Take care of yourselves and teach your children well. I know I did and still am. I can't wait to see what the good Lord has in store for my son! Have a great weekend everyone!
