Update and thoughts

Hey everyone!

It has been crazy at my house as of late! My sister and I are graduating as you all know and we have been flying around like mad trying to get all the announcements and invites for our ceremony and open house for graduation done! If you all are interested here is a picture of my announcement and here are a series of the grad pictures. We were able to send out most of our announcements yesterday. We bought the announcements at michaels and our friend Lindsey did the printing of the writing on them for us, as well as the wallet sized photos.

The whole box of all the cards come this way from michaels.

Lindsey printed the announcements.

The announcements and photo before tieing with a ribbon.

The finished product! Bethany has stationary from michaels as well, but it is navy and matches her dress she is wearing in the photos below.

The one below is the one I used for my graduation announcements! I thought it was the best one out of all the ones my friend Lindsey did. Bethany my sister also thought it was the best one. So this is my grad photo!
The rest of these I thought I would post for fun. It was a lot of fun a few saturdays ago when our friend Lindsey did an all day photo shoot at the local gardens by our house called Meadow Lark gardens. It was a beautiful day that the Lord blessed us with! We had lots of sunshine and it was cool because of the lovely windy day.

The above one was taken on a hill and I felt on top of the world! hehe It was a fun picture to pose for! :)

I love this one of Bethany and I !

This one I have deemed my contemplative look. :)

Pretty flowers and all!

This one above was my second choice for my official grad picture. It was close!

And to end! We are happy despite all the stress and things flying by with graduation preparations! Beth is sewing up a storm making our graduation gowns! Hopefully she can get pictures up when all the hustle and bustle is over!
God bless and I will try and squeeze in some pictures of my quilt soon! I finished the top!!!! So I will post pictures once I baste the batting and the top together.
In Christ,

thanks everyone!

I can't wait till Beth posts what she has up her sleeves, the gowns are gorgeous so far!

Now I even have a lovely summer/ day style dress for our big grad open house/party and one for the graduation ceremonies! She is working on both at the same time!

Very beautiful! The paper and designs of your invitations are delicate and elegant. I wish I could have one. :) I would also like to go to your ceremony and open house too! It sounds like it is going to be really fun. Hope to hear about it in a post or on FB! I also would like to see a picture of you in your graduation gown! I can't believe your sister is making them! She is the Sewing Queen. ;)

The other pictures in the photoshoot are amazing. I love the area that you are in, Meadow Lark. It looks like the area I am in right now. (My family and I are in northern CO, as you probably saw on my FB hehe!) Lovely!

Can't wait to see your quilting project!
