Playing With Mediterranean Blooms

This is another short post today. But I wanted to give you a peek at one of the projects I’ll be sharing this week on Wednesday during my Online Paper Crafting Class. I’m hoping to share three different ones! So I hope you can tune into my YouTube channel at 11 AM Central Time that day to get instructions for this card and more.

A woven background makes for an eye-catching greeting card. Visit my 6/17/24 post for more information on making this card using the Mediterranean Blooms Suite of products. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Our Fun-filled First Half of June

Today I’m not featuring any creative projects. Instead this is just a quick post to share what’s been happening in our household during this first part of June. It’s been busy to say the least. But it’s been fun! And if you’ve been tuning into my Online Paper Crafting Classes you may know some or all of this news. But now I have a few photos to share. 😁

Our oldest son, Nicholas graduated from high school! His commencement ceremony was on June 3rd. It was a warm, sunny evening. So everyone was hot, but happy for the sunshine. It was a wonderful day for sure!

Our oldest son, Nicholas graduated from high school! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

When I first started blogging in 2013, this was one of the first photos I shared of him. He had turned 7 years old a few months prior (on October 1st) to when I posted, and I was sharing his Mario themed birthday card and cake that I had made. Look at how little he was! Quite the change from what he looks like today, right?

(Luke, our other son was just 5-1/2 years old at that time. This is another photo from that post.)

I can’t believe it’s already over 11-1/2 years since then! And now Nick will begin college in the fall.

He’s majoring in Exercise Science. He loves fitness, nutrition, and exercise. And he loves to challenge himself to do his best. So it makes sense that he is passionate about body building and has been in training for his first competition for several months. Here he is at that event which took place on June 8th, 5 days after the graduation ceremony.

Here is another side-by-side photo of the boys. Gosh! They are young men now! Nick really enjoyed being on stage. He’s back in training and already planning to compete in another event in September.

On June 9th, the day after the competition, we had his graduation party. We were so blessed to have so many friends and family attend and share in the celebrating.

A bonus to having the party the day after the competition was that he was free to eat whatever he wanted and eat like a “normal” person. Hahaha! I’m not sure if he had any of this cake, but he certainly COULD have.

Though no major events for Luke, he IS done with 11th grade and he is enjoying his summer off so far. Next year around this time I’ll be posting photos from HIS party.

No news about my husband Tim either other than he has been a gem helping me prepare for that party. The yard was in tip-top shape!

My own personal news is that I just created and posted a video sharing details and information about my hair journey and the topper that I’ve been wearing recently. You can view that video by clicking here.

I absolutely LOVE my UniWigs Upgrade Courtney hair topper in Dusty Ash Brown. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

It took a lot of planning and preparation to get it recorded and done. It was also very emotional for me, because I put myself out there. But I’m so grateful I did it, because the comments coming in have shown me that I’ve already helped others dealing with hair loss. If you left a comment, thank you for that support…and for your support in general!

I have more creative projects that I’m working on, so stay tuned for those in future posts! Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend!
