The Shape I Love!

My favorite shape is the shape of a house!!! So the last few days I've been working with that shape - and it does take over my life. Above you see some little house journals that I'm sending to some friends as RAKs. I need to make some more to send before the end of the month. This house is based on one I saw on my friend Tammy Gilley's blog. I love her stuff and she knows I love her stuff. We met at Silver Bella last November. She was my inspiration for those pennants I did last year ... in case you've forgotten. This picture above is the beginning of some House ATCs for a swap on the Christian Paper Artists Yahoo Group. I must get back to working on them very soon. Last weekend was my husband's birthday and we drove into Houston on Friday night and met the kids at Pappadeaux's. I don't know what had just been said... but my kids are looking at each other funny. That's my son's girlfriend in the middle. We made a mistake and took the seat by the bar. We wanted the booth as the girls were cold. It was SO LOUD there - a bunch of guys were on the other side of that glass partition watching the Rockets play and having a very good time. Don't those kids look young? I thought "people are going to think the girlfriend is 15!!!" I assure you all 3 of them are well out of college (Texas A&M) and have good jobs! Praise the Lord! Have a good day!

Love your house journals. They look adorable.
Seems like a good time was had by all at Pappadeaux's. Love to eat there.
