MY POOR, NEGLECTED BLOG

It's a busy time at our house right now ... it's my daughter Allie's senior year and we have many year-end/senior events going on, and graduation party preparations. I haven't been feeling particularly creative in the evenings, as my day job pretty much wipes me out. I won't be posting as regularly as I normally do until June, and hope very much that you'll all still be here when I get back in full force! I do plan to keep up with my weekly iPICKS, and will share original artwork as it happens.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a few of Allie's Senior Photos with you ....

OMG those pictures are gorgeous ,as is your daughter. I know this is exciting and stressful time for both of you. Good luck on your party plans and all the preparations. I can relate in a way, as I am graduating myself in June (but college) and it's the craziest time right now.

What a lovely young woman I know how proud you must be. We are going through the Senior Crazies too and I love it but it is exhausting at the same time. We had Prom this last Saturday and it went off without a hitch...whooo hooo.

I hope you enjoy every second of all the events coming your way. I know I am trying to do the same. Please give my regards to your daughter and I wish her good luck for the future. And the same goes out to her proud family for all of your support. Have fun Nancy!!!
