Ten years ago I married the man of my dreams!
May 22, 1999, my life became so much more. I join my life with his, and it has been a wild ride ever since.
Gordon is such a special man. He makes me want to be a better wife, mother, friend, sister, daughter, and daughter-in-law. I don't know how he does it, but he seems to know what I need, sometimes even before I do. He can make me laugh so hard that I cry, and he can make my tears of sadness lessen a bit.
We have been through so much over these last ten years. Some of it happy times, and some of it trying or sad times. But through it all I think our marriage has only become stronger.

He is my best friend.

I can't believe how fast these ten years have gone.

I love you Gordon, thank you for making me the happiest I ever thought I could be.

Here's to many more years of special blessings, surprises, and adventures.

Big Sis.

Yes, another bag. I made this one for my big sis! I was with her for a whole long day about a month or so ago and she commented on a leather bag I had. So I knew for her birthday I wanted to make her something that would resemble that bag. But...I couldn't find a pattern that I liked. So, what did I do? Well, I measured the leather bag I have, and added some cool fabric, and alittle longer handles, and here's the result:
I bought home decor fabric to make it alittle more sturdy.
The inside it is just a bog open bag. She can carry books, magazines, even a bottle of water in it.
I think it turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself. Working without a pattern, not easy, for sure. And as it turns out, she could even turn it inside out. It could be reversible. Pretty cool!

Happy Birthday, Char!!!
