This last week has been a difficult week for me and my family.  My father at age 67 died suddenly.  This is the obituary that was posted in the Signal newspaper back in our hometown.  Tonight we will be having services here in Bozeman, Montana and then again on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 in Santa Clarita, California where he will be with God.

Dennis George Farnham

Dennis George Farnham, 67, passed away in Bozeman on July 16, 2011. He was born June 11, 1944 in National City, California, to Charles Richard and Marie (Boziger) Farnham.

Dennis attended San Diego City College, the FBI Academy, and later retired from the Los Angeles Police Department. He served in the US Air Force during the Vietnam War. Dennis married Kathleen Hagan in Winterhaven, California on April 17, 1966. He was a member of the Optimist Club, the Santa Clarita Chamber of Commerce, Explorer Scouts (LAPD), the Masons, and the Shriner's. Dennis lived life to the fullest. There wasn't anything in life that he wouldn't try once.

Dennis is survived by his wife, Kathy, of Gallatin Gateway; daughters, Shawn (Steve) Box, and Sheri Farnham; and five grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Visitation at Dokken-Nelson Sunset Chapel will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, July 22. A Sunset Service will be held at 8 p.m. Saturday, July 23, at the Bozeman Pond Pavilion (west of the Mall). Interment will be in Eternal Valley Memorial Mortuary, Santa Clarita, California.

Instead of sending flowers, he had asked that donations be made to either the Shrine or Eagle Mount in his honor.  If you would like to receive more information regarding these two groups, please feel free to email me.

Thank you all for the love and prayers we have been receiving........... God Bless!

Good Evening All!!! 

It's finally Friday again.  Tomorrow our daughter's work is having a BBQ and they have invited her family to attend.  We finally get to meet all these young ladies and gentlemen that she speaks so highly of.  Please keep in mind, she works at an assisted living facility for the elder.  We asked her if there was anything that we needed to bring.  Of course she said, "No, everything is taken care of."  Well, since we can never attend a BBQ without bringing something.  We decided to bring something individual for each of the young ladies and gentlemen. 

While browsing the internet the other day, I came across these cute little purses.  When I showed them to my daughter, she stated those would be great.  So off we went to the store to buy "Hersey Nuggets - Milk Chocolate Only".  This project was so easy and quick.  Here is a couple of photos.  I apologize if they are blurry.  My camera needed a charge.

All you need is a scrap piece of paper (1 3/8" x 4 1/2"), ribbon, velcro, glue and flower rhinestones.  Score the piece of paper at (1 1/4, 2 1/4, 3 1/2 & 3 3/4).  We glued the bottom of the hersey nugget to the paper so it wouldn't slide out.  Below is a picture of what it looks like when they are open.  How easy is that?

These purses of course, were for the ladies.  Then we had to figure out something for the gentlemen.  So for theirs, we decided to use black card stock (1 3/8 x 3 1/4) and wrap it around the entire Hersey nugget.  Velcro the ends together.  Attach a red bow made from PDDU at 3/4" fit to length and add a rhinestone to bow.  Whalla!!!!  This is what we came up with...............

Well, if your anything like me.  You'll love getting one of these just for the chocolate (LOL).  These would be great to make for either a bridal shower or a birthday party.  If you should make these, I would love to see them. 

Once again, thanks for blogging with me.  It really means alot to me.  Have a great evening!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I apologize that I haven't posted anything in about a week.  My Husbands entire family (FIL, MIL, SIL, BIL, Nephews and Aunt) are arriving next Thursday and we have been trying to get somethings completed before they arrive.  They will be with us for 10 days.  So our house will be full.  During that time I will try and post.  

Since it is my Brother-In-Law and Sister-In-Laws anniversary tomorrow.  Happy Anniversary!  I'm am now able to post the card that I sent to them.  I got this idea from Katie at Crafting with Katie.  Here is my take of her card:


Brown cardstock (4 1/4 x 5 1/2)
Kraft cardstock (4 x 5 1/4)
Patterned cardstock (3 3/4 x 5)

Sweetheart Cartridge (Pocket w/insert):

Green cardstock @ 3.5"
Tan cardstock @ 3.5"

Run the green cardstock through the Swirls Cuttlebug folder.  Printed Mr. & Mrs. Mark Hester along with their wedding date on tan cardstock and adhered a red rhinestone heart to it.

Sweetheart Cartridge (Champagne Glasses):

Tan cardstock @ 2.5"
White glitter cardstock (DCWV "The Immortal Love") @ 2.5"
Red shimmer cardstock "Bows" (DCWV "The Immortal Love") @ 2.5" 

Adhere champagne glasses to pocket and then adhere to the entire card.


I thought this card came out very elegant.  Sure hope they liked as much as my husband and I did.  

Thanks for stopping by and visiting.  Have a great evening!
