There are a total of 25 tags, each different, but all in similar colors and all with the leaf and ribbon for names.
Super busy day cleaning and other boring stuff. Hopefully back tomorrow with some more interesting pre-Thanksgiving updates.

The third little shoot (the tag along) came with the first one, on the bright and sunny windy day. It was three very cute little girls I had never met before. They and their mom came with the other family to bring along desks to use as props. I wish I had more of a chance to get to know the girls in advance because they seemed so sweet, but the youngest was pretty shy of me. I got this photo of her, which I like, but it isn't exactly the happy go lucky little kid shot I'm used to getting.
So, that is a bit of an update about photos these last couple of days. If I get a chance I'll take my camera for a walk later this afternoon, as we have a bit of snow on the ground and it might be fun to see what interesting shots are available in the fading light.
More posts to come! - I hope!

And this is just a shot I got walking back from the horses to the house. The lighting here is always interesting, especially with the clouds we've had all week.
Quick post, but I'm off to go take J to school and go to a Bible Study at church this morning. Tomorrow is going to be a big crafting day for me, so I'm getting kind of excited! Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll have some fun things to share along the paper crafts line.
Have a great Friday!

I should say, she knew what was happening with her body. She made the choice (and frankly, I'm not convinced it was a bad one) to go off of the medications her doctor felt she needed. You see, she tried the medications and they made her sick and tired. When she wanted to try lower doses of the medications to see if she felt better the doctor wanted her to take even more. She almost couldn't function and was canceling out of activities because of how the medications made her feel. She was very frustrated on the medications and determined that she would rather feel good and live less time than to feel the way the medications made her feel and possible live longer.
In the last month I actually saw quite a bit of her, and she showed not indication of suffering or feeling poorly. She was energetic, up beat, laughing lots and just a joy to be around. She took my cardboard book class in early October, and did a bang up job with hers. She shared the finished project with me at the retreat in late October - we shared a table that weekend. Her work on that book was beautiful. She used the theme of Yellowstone National Park, and she stamped and distressed and hinged and just made the most interesting book ever. I felt like I needed to revamp the sample after seeing the improvements she made.
I will miss Rosie!

Sunday was church, a couple of errands and a quiet afternoon at home, topped off by a bit of a stressful evening as I ran out the door to a meeting and J and Andy tussled over some previously forgotten homework.
I'm feeling emotionally better than late last week, but not quite myself yet. I'm glad it's better because I was headed to a very dark place. I'm praying it will continue to get better because I don't want to settle for where I am now. I'm also throwing in a bit of exercise to try to get my mood up.
Off to a day where hopefully I'll get something accomplished that is worthy of sharing here.
