Happy 23rd Birthday, Ivan!!!

Wishing you a very "Happy Birthday"!!!  Don't know where time has gone....you were the one that introduced me to "Motherhood"! I learned that babies come when they are good and ready....we waited a whole extra week for you :))  It was love at first sight....all 7 lbs. 2oz. of you.....pure sweetness.  You changed my life forever....for the better of course....you taught me how to live and enjoy each and every day.....and you're still doing that....I miss our chats when everybody else was busy....you have always made time for your younger siblings and taken them fishing and hunting or whatever else they could talk you into.....they will always remember you for that :)  We miss you not living here with us anymore...but we wish you the very best in life!!! "Happy Birthday"!!!  Love you!!

Over in the Alteration Department.....

Thought you might enjoy seeing what I've been up to lately.  I've taken a job in alterations with a local bridal shop....so for me, this is a whole new kind of sewing.  Mama taught us girls to sew at a young age....( thanks, Mom!!!!) and over the years I have had the chance to do lots of different types of sewing but NEVER wedding gowns!  I'm having lots of fun learning :)  Here's a few pics of some of my latest projects :)

Keep in mind I didn't make these dresses.....just some alterations...hem, take up or let out side seams...add a belt....bustle up the back, etc.
