Creative Writer Blog Award and a RAK

I would like to thank Sheila from the She's a Sassy Lady blog for this blog award. Please check her wonderful blog out at

As part of this award I am supposed to tell you 6 truths about myself and 1 lie or vice versa. I chose to tell 6 truths and 1 lie, so try to figure out which is the lie.

1. My favorite color is brown.
2. My husband supports my hobby 100%.
3. I love cats.
4. I am addicted to SU! products.
5. I consider myself an environmentalist but realistic.
6. I like soccer.
7. My husband taught me how to cook.

Please leave a comment under this post telling me which of the statements above is not true and I will randomly pick a winner of a Crop-a-dile among the ones who guessed it right on Wednesday June 23, 2010. (Sorry, US only). Thanks!!!

Graduation party favors

Hi, the past few weeks my life has been very stressful and even though things aren't back to normal, I have to be thankful that they aren't getting any worse. I would like to thank you for all the prayers.

After experiencing so many problems with my blog (wasn't able to fix it), I thought it was time to share some of my creations with you.

This week I made 45 graduation party favors for my mom. She is a school teacher and her school is having a graduation party by the beginning of July and she wanted to give each graduate a little something. So I came up with this idea. I still need to glue clear bags with candy to each of them (photo 1) but the end product would look something like photo 2. Hope you like them!!
