Marvelous Monday

OH my goodness, what a weekend!  
First, let me BRAG about my kids!!!
Monster won a medal for reading 27 of his grade level books
And then there was Aye – reading 54 grade level books
And here is the kicker….. my mom-in-law took them to the awards ceremony and entered them into the ‘door prizes’.  Guess who won?  Can you guess?  My little kindergartener – 6 years old – won a laptop!  Yes, it is a few years old, but it works just fine and is MORE than he will need for a long time!  
Then the fun came in trying to get him OFF the computer over the weekend!!
Many of you watch my Fan Page too, so you know what I am working on lately.  
Here is the project I started mid last week
And over 344 Swarovski Crystals and Swarovski Pearls later, here is what I have come up with.
In honor of my bracelet I thought I would feature a wonderful shop – Wood-N-Wonders and their wonderful sign.  Please go check out what else they have in their studio!
And here are the HOPS I am doing today
Remember today, as you walk about life, what a join it is JUST to be able to WALK!  ~KM
