My precious father in law passed away yesterday, I have such a heavy heart. He meant the world to me – and heaven gained an amazing angel!

I like to describe my in law’s marriage like the sweet little couple in the movie Up. These two were so in love all those years of marriage.

Look at this family! They have 11 children! One of the most fun we have with this family is listening to the stories of them growing up on the farm. It’s amazing the kids are all still alive after hearing these stories!


I believe the last count is about 75 grand/great grandchildren! Not all of them are pictured in this photo taken a few years ago. What a legacy my father in law has left!

We had an anniversary party a few years ago for my in laws. We all rented cabins on a lake in Mn. and had a week of fun, fellowship, laughter and lake-life! It was one of my most favorite weeks with this family. Cherished memories…..

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting any projects. Sometimes life just happens. If you remember, we had a friend pass away 3 weeks ago as well, and now this. It’s been a tough month for us here, but am thankful our friend and father in law knew Christ in a personal way and are at his side as I type!

Here’s a card we made at Stamp Club this week – my sweet downline ran half of my classes this month so I could be with family in Mn. Thank you Janice and Linda!!!!!!!! Love you two! I couldn’t have done it without you!!!! This card features Hey Love stamp set and Be Mine Stitched Framelits from the new spring catalog.

God bless you all, and hug those you love, you never know when it will be your last day!
