Happy New Year 2020!



I haven't been on the blog for a couple of weeks, as you may (or may not) have noticed.  It's been a whirlwind of activity!


I am officially retired from teaching as of December 20th.  It hasn't sunk in yet, even though everyone else has returned to school as of today.  I'm still working my part-time retail job, but I've requested some days off in the coming months, and if they can't accommodate me, then I will let that go, too.  I have MUCH to do!





I was able to create some one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts this year including throw pillows, a blanket, and some homemade bath salts (the kind you actually put in a bath.  Haha!).  It was all a hit!  I can't wait to sew or create my next project.  Soon!  Here's the fabric I used for one of the pillows and the blanket.  I forgot to take actual photos.


Our daughter and I are hosting a baby shower for her sister soon.  She's due March 2.  We won't know if it's a boy or girl until she gives birth as the couple doesn't want to know.  That seems to be a new trend now.  Maybe people are getting tired of "gender reveal" parties!  I am going to make a "diaper cake" and other decorations.  I can't wait! Here's an example of one thing I will be making.


We had a great New Year's Eve.  Went to the Rockets game, and they won.  Then stayed downtown. It was a blast!  I hope you had a great one, too!

Now this...







I've probably posted this before, but I just think it's hilarious!  Maybe because one of our daughters works for the Y.
And this one, if you're old enough to have grown up watching the TV show 20/20!  Cracks me up every time!


That's all for now!  Visit Stacy for more random fun!

  1. Wait...what?! You're retired? Aren't you too young?? :)

    And yes, my friend, I did indeed miss you, even though I myself haven't been around much lately! So glad you're back! :)

    Ooooh! CONGRATS to your daughter!!

    Handmade gifts are always so very cool - and appreciated!

    I can't wait to see the diaper cake you'll be creating for your other daughter - the ribbon thingy is way cool!

    Your funnies are hysterical! Thanks for the belly laughs! :)
