birthday photos

Forgot to add photos of the birthday boys, Frank and Gordon. And my sister made the cake. Delish!

August birthdays

Wow! It seems that just about everyone has an August Birthday. Today, the 12th, is my Dad's birthday. Of course, I made him a card. Forgot to take a photo though.
My brother celebrated his b-day on the 6th and brother-in-law, Gordon, was 49 on the 2nd. We had a very nice barbecue at Gordon's to celebrate both guys. Michael brought cigars for the men. Very manly!
I am working on some Halloween cards because, not only are Halloween themes my fave, but I visited Inspiration Station in Stafford Springs, CT, with BFF Kim last week and they are having a Halloween card class next month. I am so going! And Kim searched for two stamps for me because Inspiration Station didn't have them; a skull and a dancing skeleton. How cool is she??!!!! I will definitely post photos of projects.
Michael is going to Rock and Shock in Worcester and I am working on Halloween projects that he can sell at the table, including some skull earrings. I think they are pretty cool and will definitely keep a pair for myself.

We will hold a home fair, "Pathways to Homeownership" on Saturday, September 25 from 9:00 till 2:00 at Springfield Technical Community College. Bankers, realtors and various housing experts will have informational tables.

We will of course, have information about our own housing related programs like our Weatherization Assistance Program, our Individual Development Program that helps you save to buy a house and matches your savings.

More information as we go along so, stay tuned.
