Hi friends!!  I'm so sorry it has been such a long time since I have posted anything.  We have been so busy!!!  We are doing well and adjusting to life in Africa.  Finally after 2.5 months getting used to driving on the other side of the road.  The people here are so wonderful, we just love them.
We went to a elephant preserve and got to meet all the elephants there and even go for a ride on them around the preserve.  There were two little ones that were so cute.  They try to keep them away from us with a railing because even though they are babies they are huge and don't realize they can hurt you.  They love to head bunt you and try to climb on you so until they are better trained they keep them a little separate from people.  They love people and love being touched so this video is of the littlest one Bela she so wanted to get to us.  We were holding her trunk and rubbing her but she wanted more.  I hope you enjoy it!

Hi Friends from Africa!!

Hi dear friends sorry its been a bit since I posted something but I have been so busy.  We did get to take a safari and that was such an amazing experience.  I am learning so many things and beginning to get used to driving on the wrong side of the road.  The food is wonderful and the people are amazing!  I truly love them.  Here are some videos and photos from our safari.

Where I have been...

 So you may have been wondering where I have been lately...I am in Africa...I know right!  We got here April 2 2018 and will be here for 23 months serving a mission for our church.  So unfortunately I won't be doing any crafting but I will post some photos of this experience.  The people are wonderful and so full of love.  The children are so adorable and sweet!  This sweet lady and her little baby were at church today in fact she spoke.  I loved her dress and notice her fun shoes!  You can just see them peeking out from under her dress.

Celebrate Mickey Birthday Card

So I still can't edit my photos so please don't judge me on them...they look terrible.  Anyway I made this for one of my grandsons school teacher for her birthday, she is crazy about Disney.  The Mickey balloons are from the Mickey Font and are on foam tape.

Tic Tac Toe Card

This card is from the Silhouette store, I believe it is by Lori Whitlock.  Anyway I cut out 40 of these...yep I did.  The things mothers do for their kids.  My daughter needed these for a church thing so of course she calls me and I can't say no. 
These cards are super cute and even easier to make.  The hearts are on foam tape for that added dimension.  The cute little metal heart I had in my stash so I don't know where it is from.  I hope you all have a Happy Valentines day and get to spend it with those you love!

Valentines Day Treat Bags

Hey friends so sorry I haven't posted much lately.  I sold my beautiful 27" Mac desktop and am now using an 11" sad!  I have had all kinds of problems with iPhoto since doing an update and so I can't upload photos or edit them.  I finally got these uploaded but not in iPhoto so please forgive me that they are not edited.
These are some little Valentines treat bags I made for my littles.  Super simple and easy this year since I just had eye surgery and can't see very well either.  These are supposed to be cookie bags but I filled them with candy and stickers and a little notepad.
