A Peek At My Treasures...


When Zachary was in Junior High, he took a class called Life Skills. In it they taught him the basics of laundry, cooking and sewing. He sewed this smiley face for me while learning to sew buttons and basic stitching. It will always be on the shelf in our living room.


Tyler brought this paper mache puppet home from school today. I instantly fell in love with it and put it on the mantle. I don't know what it is about it, actually I do-it was made by my son.

Eli brought this adorable penguin home from his daycare. Too cute! He has been crazy about penguins ever since we saw 'Happy Feet'.


Katelyn drew this picture of the front sunroom on our house. It is very accurate. She matted and framed it, then gave it to me for Christmas. I just love it. It hangs in our downstairs bathroom.


My baby sister made this for me when she was in 6th grade. She is now 28. I will keep it always.

I just love all your artwork! Much better than some fancy-shmancy painting from someone you've never met! I love treasures from my kids too!
