K's final dress for her high school career...On to the next child

G and I missed this event. But B and a friend filled in for the role of hair dresser, and so forth. I know I am a little prejudice, but K looks fabulous. And the dress was finished with 24 hours to spare. How I will miss sewing for K, even though she always changes her mind about something, or doesn't like the fit, and every other thing imaginable. The things we do for our children. You are beautiful.

Woo Hoo!

Just got news this week that K was awarded the "Award in Excellence" scholarship from BYU-I. That means full tuition for two semesters! So happy about that. Good to see all her hard work academically, practice time in extra- curricular, service, seminary and leadership paid off after all. So proud of her.

Another Dance another Dress

I really like to sew! Have I mentioned that before? Here is the latest creation for Prom in the next town over. This is K with her friend Nate. For me... On to the next project.

What do you think?

For about 3-4 years now, I have wanted to paint my door red. Last year I actually went and got some samples, but didn't find the right color. I didn't want it to be tinted pink in anyway. Yes, a red door, kind of not my usual self since just about my entire house is tan and white. But sometimes I like little splashes of unexpected color in my life such as a red wall in the kitchen, or an orange purse. Sometimes I even go as far as putting on some colorful jewelry instead of the gold standby. I finally did it. I know have a rhubarb door. Some of my family members don't like it. And that is okay, but it is staying rhubarb for now. What do you think?
