What Happened to March?

WOW!  I've been busy!  I can't believe April is here - it's a party month in our family as Brandon & I have bithdays coming up.  Here's the March highlights since I never found the time to post.  I promised to be better this April - maybe...

 A sight I liked to refer to as Dustmageddon

Graduation time from Operation Hope & the Trash to Treasure program at the Philippine Embassy here in Kuwait.  I can't even tell you how proud I am to be a part of this.  I work with an amazing team of ladies (Hi Cheryl, Becky & Amy) & our "students" are wonderful in every way.  We have several graduates going back to start their own businesses & administer to those in need.  What other validation do I need?

 The craft show I spent oodles of time getting ready for.  What fun!  I really enjoy every part of this - well not the inventory stuff.  I know this is what I'm supposed to be doing because I'm in my element.  The maroon velour tablecloths were provided, not my color scheme - obviously, but much better than nothing.

  I cleaned my craft corner.  What is this world coming to?  Wonder where my creative juju comes from?  It's my mom.  The oil painting of the flowers in the top left shelf is one my mom did.  I saw it the summer before we left the states & asked if I could take it with me. 

I found another use for my tiara - I actually wore it to a ball here!  I figured it matched the dress & all I ever use it for is Halloween so why not!  I had to do the self portrait thing since my hubby spent the whole day setting up then the whole night overseeing tear down.  I had to drive myself to & from the ball without him.  Thank goodness for the tiara :)

I have a *slight* obsession with the beautiful mosques here.  I Always have a camera on me - never know when I need to pull over to take a picture.  Can't tell you how useful the sunroof is in my car.  Yep, that's me in the parking lot sticking out of the sunroof with my camera.

Got my driver's license...

And I got lost!

Here's looking to an exciting April!

A lot has happened to you - but all happy events :-)I only know now of the Trash and Treasure project that you and your friends are involved there and I think that is one beautiful thing you guys are doing . . . and I'm sure very enjoyable too :-)

Love your tiara! :-)

Happy Easter!
