Happy Birthday, Mom!

My mom has driveway on a state highway that is very easy to pass.  I know where I’m going,  yet I manage to drive right past it almost every time I visit.  It’s also rather difficult to simply turn around an go back.  The safest opportunity to do so is about a mile down the road.   SO….this year for her birthday, I made this nifty, yet sparkly, practical address plaque. I’ll never blast past her house again!

Wakka! Wakka!

I’m so lucky, as I have kids who have a great sense of humor.  The other night at dinner, they were rapid-firing stupid jokes.  This one struck me as being particularly funny, and therefore, the inspiration for today’s post.  Ready…..

What did one snowman say to the other?

Merry Christmas from Mr. and Mrs. Ginger

Mr. and Mrs. Ginger

This was one of my favorite Holiday greeting cards that I did several years back.  I’ve had it in my portfolio for quite awhile, but with the recent updates to my website, Mr. and Mrs. Ginger are now retired.   They wish you Merry Christmas, Warm Holiday Greetings and Peace and Prosperity in the upcoming New Year!

mosaic house numbersEvery year, I never know what to get my Dad for Christmas.  On a visit last May, I noticed that he had taken down his house numbers when he replaced his vinyl siding the year before.  I asked him if he was going to put his numbers back up.  He thought probably he wouldn’t, since they weren’t very pretty and he didn’t want to punch a bunch of holes in his brand new siding.  I made a mental note of it and came up with  a mosaic house number plaque for him.  He might still have to drill a hole or two, but at least it’s pretty enough to warrant doing so.
