Lillian Margaret Strong

Last night we met our first Grandchild and fell instantly in love with her. Papa Colin was holding her as we entered the room with Mom Kerry resting after a long 1/2 day delivery. The lights were low and jazz was softly playing on the ipod. Alert little Lillian was yawning and looking around at all the tear stained faces in the room - Serenity, Joy and Thankfulness were the watchwords of the night. Colin Skyped Great Grandma & Great Grandpa from his iphone so they could see their new Great Granddaughter - magical! And so a new adventure begins for Colin & Kerry and our little Lily! We are so blessed.

Mother In Law Tongue

I was asked to share how I made the Plant on the home page. Here is the simple technique for making the "Mother In Law Tongue"
Print out the template and copy it on to green cardstock.
Use a cream colored pencil to draw vertical lines across the front and back of each leaf. Rim each leaf with yellow pencil on the front and back.
Score, fold and twist each cut out leaf.
Combine several leaves together and attach to the back of my Cloissone Pot. Easy!
