Really Random, 2/14/13

Smiling children make me happy. This one can make the silliest faces.

This one was having fun seeing himself on the iPhone camera and taking pictures.
I went on a field trip with this one the other day--we rode the school bus together to another school to see their middle school musical. It was lots of fun.
And we were finally able to give this one the present for her first birthday, which was nearly a month ago. Crazy schedules and sickness...But at this age, I don't think she really noticed that it was almost a month late!

A few weeks ago I mentioned that my dream is to ride a Zamboni. And someone remarked that it was the 100th anniversary of the Zamboni. Google even did a doodle honoring the event.

I was sorting through some old pictures and came across these. When the place where my parents currently live was being built, Aaron went up in the rafters and wrote facts about his life at that time. I think it was then boarded up and probably no one will ever see this, but it's kind of cool to know that it is secretly there. 
Kind of hard to read, but these were all his favorite sports teams at that time
Our good friends, George and Cheri, will soon be celebrating their 2nd wedding anniversary. I had saved corks from their wedding reception and finally got around to doing something with them. I found these cool little frame that come in a set. You hot glue corks into and turn them into coasters. I have a huge selection to choose from--and no, I did not drink all the bottles of wine that these corks came from! Just some of them.
And finally, I didn't forget that today is Valentine's Day. I made this for a little sweetheart who loves purple.
Hope your day is lovely.

You rode a school bus! Don't they feel small when you are a grown-up?! And I had to stop when I saw all those corks! I was wondering if we might need a mid-century intervention :) Hee hee! Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm impressed with how that zipper is into the piping. :)

I love your little heart pouch! I have been wanting to try one of the pouch tutorials that I see everywhere on the blogs, but haven't yet. I will have to get on that!
