Hand painted Tea Lights for the Holiday Seasons

These I had seen in the store and they were not together, they were all seperate pieces.
I had thought if Iuse this as a base and I liked the different container so I thesprayed painted
the part of the glass then painted my own design and then added the Tea Light and there
it is, a Holiday Tea light and the whole cost was nothing to as if you had bought it all as one.
You can purchase these in a set of 3 for $15.00 plus shipping which is $9.95 for a total of $24.95.

Enjoy and be Creative with what you see and look outside the box.

This is for the Chocolate lovers

I was looking at quotes today and came across this quote about Chocolate and thought I would share it
with you all, since I'm sure most of us out there just can't stand that delicious sweet tasting brown
stuff called Ya right!!!!

"I have this theory that chocolate slows down the aging process.... It may not be true, but do I dare take the chance?

Unknown "
I do know that I think this would be a great excuse to eat chocolate,
you are doing this for your health so you need to keep it
in the house. Plus if you set it out for guest you are also helping
there health too.  So Remember Chocolate is like the
Fountain of Youth and we all can use that, so Happy Chocolate eating.
Just thought you would like this little

Graduation Time

This is my youngest Regan and she will be the 1st graduating class 2010 from Canyon Ridge High School.
This is our new High School where Regan is Decca Secretary, Leo Club President, Concert Choir, Completed the Fiance Academy and won the Hawks Humanitarian Award for the Seniors 1st quarter.
She is planning on going to CSI (College of Southern Idaho) in Secondary Eduction
and majoring in English and Art, then she plans on getting her degree in Graphic Designs.
She  definitely has a plan and is going for it, plus she has figured out that staying home as long as she can
is extremely cost effective since housing is so expensive.
We just finish her last Concert Choir of her High School career and she felt a great relief and some sadness
too. She has the rest of this week of school and then next week is basically rehearsals and Senior Trip, Year book signing and what ever else comes up. Plus she will still need to get her classes for the fall, it's a never ending

Regan Happy Graduation and
Daddy and I are so proud of you!
