My niece Jenny had a little baby boy the other day so I picked up a small bunch of flowers at Target while I was there because I knew my mother and I were planning on visiting them the next day. I didn't have a clue what I was going to do with them but I thought they were pretty and they were only $4.99. The next day before we left I wondered what I should put them in. I saw an empty cookie tin left over from Christmas that needed to go away so I grabbed an old bouquet oasis I had in the garage, soaked it in some water and anchored it with some sticky stuff at the top of the can. Then I cut the flowers and stuck them in the oasis and found some ribbon around here and stuck it on there along with a tag I had that was looking for a home. I thought it turned out pretty cool for no more than it cost and it looked way better than any of the expensive little bud vases they had in the hospital gift shop. (if I do say so myself) They may not be great quality flowers but they served their purpose and should live at least a couple of days. What's great is the can was without water so it was really lightweight and transported easily. This is my mom Great-Grandma Janet holding handsome baby Luke, who weiged 6lbs 120z. I think He's a keeper! This is Luke's big sister Adison with their daddy Don. Adi is going to be one of Angie's flower girls this September.
Hi there! My name is Sandy and I live in Indianapolis. Thanks for visiting my little blog. I started this when my oldest daughter (I have two) got engaged because she was planning her wedding and it was driving me crazy that I didn't get to be the one deciding on the decor. At my own wedding 28 years ago I don't remember really caring anything about the decor. My mom planned most of it. Anyway this became an outlet for me and my creative juices. I have decorated a few weddings and 50TH anniversary parties, birthdays (most of which I never even got any copies of the pictures for because I didn't have a camera or a computer or a blog or even know what a blog was for that matter) and I have always decorated for the birthdays of the kids I take care of. I still don't have a working camera so it's been very frustrating having to rely on others to take pictures and actually send them to me. They rarely deliver. I would love to actually get to do a party where the budget was BIG. Seems I am always doing everything for free for friends and family so the party business so far is costing me money. If you'd like to pay someone to do yours, most likely I am available and would love to help. If you are an event designer and need help, look no further. I've collected a lot of vases and decor over time and would be happy to sell or rent any of it. If you see it on my blog and want to use it or need help with your party just leave me a comment and I will be happy to get back with you.

The Gift of Salvation
Ephesians 2:8-9 (New International Version)
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9not by works, so that no one can boast.
