I also got my new stamp set from the mini catalog. It's a great set to have for scrapbooking summer pictures or making invitations for parties. I love this card because it's so simple and doesn't use a lot of colors. What do you think?

I also got some painting done in the last week for a store that sells my art. They want what sells and crabs will sell. So here's a picture of a blue crab. A very tasty treat here in the South. My husband will go out and put some traps in the area and we'll have a crab boil. Here's a pic of an invite I made last year for one of our crab boils.
Here's the painting I did. What do you think?
Amanda gave me this dinosaur she made in art class today. I love it! I told her I would put it on my blog.
I took Jessica to Amanda's school today so she could take a tour of the school and see where she would be going next year. Her friend Lainey was there too. Aren't they so cute?
Oh and here's a picture of my necklace that Steve gave me. It's very beautiful and dainty. I love it a lot. :)

I have to tell you the funny thing that I bought him for our anniversary. I bought him two books at an antique store. He loves hunting and fishing so I was going for that theme. Plus he likes old books. So one of the books was written by Earnest Hemmingways' daughter about hunting with her dad. I thought that would be a good one. The other one was called The Big Fisherman. I don't know what made me think it was about fishing but it turns out that the book is about Jesus and his disciples. LOL. We both got a kick out of that. But when he started to read it he said it was well written and sounded good. So we'll both read it and see what we learn.
I have to say that I love the necklace that Steve got me. I did kinda pick it out. It's white gold with diaonds and it swirls around and kinda looks like a J. I like it a lot. :)
That's it for today. I'm looking forward to the class on Thursday day for Easter cards and also the marker club meeting on Thursday night. See you soon!

I was on my way to a Creative Memories party when I noticed the Middle school was blocked off by police cars. My daughters elementary school is right next door to the middle school so I was a little worried but not scared. I found out later that the middle school was in lock down because they were looking for a gun.
I also found out that the elementary school was in a type of lock down too. (When Amanda got home from school she told me it was a "melt down". LOL. I had to laugh because she was home at this point and I had nothing to worry about.) When I asked her if she knew what happened at school today she told me they had a drill to hide from bad guys. My child had a drill to hide from bad guys today. And it wasn't a drill. It was real. They had to line up against the cubbies. Some kids got inside their cubbies. They told the kids it was a drill. Amanda doesn't seem scared at all by the experience but I have to say that I'm a little shaken up. I had tears in my eyes because of the possibility that something like this could happen. In this day and age my child has to worry about a gunman coming into her school and shooting kids. When I was a kid I had earthquake drills and fire drills.
I'm okay now and my child doesn't seemed scarred or worried. She's been fine and running around playing with her sister. But this kind of thing might be a more regular occurance as she grows up.
Home schooling anyone??
