I love ribbon! Usually I find all this great ribbon and then I go home and think, " humm what card can I make with this?" Well, thats just what ive been doing lately! I have been on a roll (no pun intended...)
Michael's has this great section of ribbon for 99 cents! I love it. I love the furry ribbon the most!
here are some of my latest...
(Now dont show Travis this one ... I think im going to be sending it to him!)
I LOVE Gift wrapping too! I just love bundling up something with love and sending it off in the mail - or just handing it to them! Either way, I just have fun doing it!!
Yea! We sold our chairs tonight! Now we just have the couch to go!!! Our plan was to ditch the chairs (for a large amount of money) and just have a couch. Our home was WAY to small for all that furniture.
Next we want to replace the Tan Leather couch with a comfy fabric BRAN-SPANKIN-NEW sofa! I cant wait until Dan and I can make a "we" purchase for "our" furniture together. Yea! Married life is so much fun!!
Here is the major improvement to our space issue that we were having:
You will have to excuse our vacuum and mess on the table. It is very late at night and I have no desire to clean it. Im just glad that the obstruction of 2 huge chairs is gone from the center of our room! Yea!! for open spaces!
"And I’m proud to be an American where as least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me. And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today. ‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A."
Today i have posted my couches on Craigs List. Why?? You are probably wondering... Its because our little home (Actually an apartment) is too small to house them all. We are wanting to use the money and buy just one traditional fabric sofa.
If your interested or know anyone that is; feel free to e-mail me. firstname.lastname@example.org

The First Presidency and Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
We, the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator's plan for the eternal destiny of His children.
All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose.
In the premortal realm, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize his or her divine destiny as an heir of eternal life. The divine plan of happiness enables family relationships to be perpetuated beyond the grave. Sacred ordinances and covenants available in holy temples make it possible for individuals to return to the presence of God and for families to be united eternally.
The first commandment that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife. We declare that God's commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. We further declare that God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife.
We declare the means by which mortal life is created to be divinely appointed. We affirm the sanctity of life and of its importance in God's eternal plan.
Husband and wife have a solemn responsibility to love and care for each other and for their children. "Children are an heritage of the Lord" (Psalms 127:3). Parents have a sacred duty to rear their children in love and righteousness, to provide for their physical and spiritual needs, to teach them to love and serve one another, to observe the commandments of God and to be law-abiding citizens wherever they live. Husbands and wives—mothers and fathers—will be held accountable before God for the discharge of these obligations.
The family is ordained of God. Marriage between man and woman is essential to His eternal plan. Children are entitled to birth within the bonds of matrimony, and to be reared by a father and a mother who honor marital vows with complete fidelity. Happiness in family life is most likely to be achieved when founded upon the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities. By divine design, fathers are to preside over their families in love and righteousness and are responsible to provide the necessities of life and protection for their families. Mothers are primarily responsible for the nurture of their children. In these sacred responsibilities, fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners. Disability, death, or other circumstances may necessitate individual adaptation. Extended families should lend support when needed.
We warn that individuals who violate covenants of chastity, who abuse spouse or offspring, or who fail to fulfill family responsibilities will one day stand accountable before God. Further, we warn that the disintegration of the family will bring upon individuals, communities, and nations the calamities foretold by ancient and modern prophets.
We call upon responsible citizens and officers of government everywhere to promote those measures designed to maintain and strengthen the family as the fundamental unit of society.
This proclamation was read by President Gordon B. Hinckley as part of his message at the General Relief Society Meeting held September 23, 1995, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
