It's time for the dreaded Thank You's. With graduation over, my son is having to write out thank you notes. Getting my sons to write anything is a chore but hopefully it won't be too much of a battle. Last week I got out my embossing heat tool and made two dozen note cards. I used a simple card design and carried over the chevron embossing from the graduation announcements I made. And check it out--there are no ribbons, brads or any other type of embellishments. The stamp came from a retired set called Engraved Greetings.
Preparing for my son's graduation party was a bit stressful. Cleaning my house is always such a gargantuan job with all my clutter from hobbies and such. When it was over I told my husband that I was never having another party here at the house. I used some of the centerpieces from the Sr. Banquet to decorate the stairway and the bureau in our entryway. Not too bad for a quick, last minute decorations.
