Happy columbus day!
We have a beautiful, sunny day here in New England today. Too bad I have to go to work!!
I have a few christmas cards for you today and one nature tree card.
The last one is my attempt at some shading on a nature inspired forest card. I have been inspired to add more shading to my copic coloring and it does make a difference.
So, what did you do this weekend?
We had a nice time at a family wedding Saturday, but it feels like the weekend just flew by. Driving 6 hours each way really eats into the weekend, but we are glad we made the trip. We don't see that side of the family too much so it's great to catch up when we can.
Don't you just love a wedding? This was a really fun one. Eliza is my dear cousin's daughter. She is one year older than my Sarah, so I couldn't help but think that Bob and I may be doing something like this in the near future.
She was a beautiful bride, marrying her high school sweetheart. They were too cute together.
Josh is a big 'tractor guy.' He collects antique tractors - I heard he has over 5. So of course when they came into the dance floor as they were introduced Mr. and Mrs. yup - they were playing 'she thinks my tractor's sexy.' It was a blast. The DJ did something I have never seen before that
was super fun. He had the bride and groom sit with their backs to each
other and their shoes off in the middle of the dance floor. He had the bride hold one of her shoes and
one of the grooms shoes and the groom did the same. Then he asked some
questions such as 'who will manage the checkbook?' Both the bride and
groom were to simultaneously raise either their shoe or the other to
indicate their answer. It was very funny and light hearted. We all busted up laughing when both bride and groom correctly answered that her family was the craziest. No doubt about that! Good thing at least his side of the family is normal! The dj
also played some super fun dancing music. The whole place was hopping the
We headed back to my cousin Nor's house and fell into bed. I didn't hit the pillow till almost midnight - which is way past my bedtime and we enjoyed visiting with her and her 3 darling girls over breakfast.
