This past weekend was my 40th( yes it was) College reunion! Does not seem possible it has been that long.......come on! Anyway I went to the luncheon on saturday with some of my dear friends and classmates who live in this area. We did have approximately 45 who attended the luncheon from all over and it was great to see and hear all about the good ole days.......40 years ago!!!! I did not take any photos but one of my friends sent this to me....my roommate is on the left and a friend who lived next door to us in the dorm is in the middle......sorry the quality is not really good!
On saturday evening was the main event and dinner. Every year they have 4 Outstanding Alumni from different years that they recognize....Tom's older brother Scott was one of the recepients of this outstanding award. Congratulations to Scott!
Even though we had a cold snowy weekend it was fun and full of activities......

A little shrink plastic/doodling stars............I used the ruff and ready shrink along with my sharpie pens and had a little fun this week. I drew a star freehand on a sheet of paper then traced with the see through shrink to make the stars.........then I doodled and filled in with the color. I added some of the white dots with the signo pens after I shrunk them........I poked holes in a few before I shrunk them incase I decide to hang them! Try some and have fun!
THese Star ornaments are made out of coffee filters............I didn't come up with the idea but you know pinterest...........so I decided to try them and they are really fun and so easy to do. Then add a little doo da on top!
And these tags can be finished in minutes......Cindy carries the background tags at the PC and then you just add the rest.........stamp your favorite Christmas stamps, washi tape tags and little embellishments. Tags are so fun to use on gifts, christmas goodies or mail to someone special!
