Stealing a Little Creative Time!


Took a Few minutes to get this
Springtime FavorBasket completed
and photographed!!


I have been so busy this week!
Sister and Brother-in-law
are in Town and we are doing
some major Cleaning and sprucing
up at our parents home this Week!

(this is the 7 kids with our Aunt Candy)
We have called in the troops.
With 7 siblings (and spouses) and our adopted Brother
and his wife, some nieces and nephews, I am sure we can
get a whole lot done. It's going to
give our parents a nice fresh Outlook!

(here we all are again, it sure was fun growing up
in a large Catholic Family)
It has been a group effort, you would be impressed
with the Home makeover! It is just about TV
worthy. I 'll be taking some pictures to share.
Be back to Blogland Soon.

Oh that bunny is so cute, Diane!

How great that you still have both of your parnets to clean and do for! You didn't tell us which one you are in the pics! Do tell! ♥

Hi Diane,

Wow, looks like you've got all the bases covered! With that many family members, the job should only be minutes! Take care, and be careful of breathing in too much dust.

Hugs,
Meri

Hi Diane,
Love your FavorBasket. I'm really into all those spring colors right now.
I also enjoyed the old family pictures. I grew up in a family of six kids so I can totally relate. How wonderful to have everyone get together to help spruce up your parents home. Although it will be work I'm sure it will be a lot of fun having everyone together.

What a great pictures of a beautiful family! There were 5 kids in my husbands big Catholic family, and 4 kids in mine, so between us we have a significant sized extended family. Makes for very fun gatherings now that we are all grown and have families of our own.

How nice you can all pitch in and help your parents. Many hands make the work go faster.

Do you mean the second from the LEFT and the third from the LEFT?

Hello Diane, I love all your new little spring creations. I have bought from your Etsy shop before and will be back for some more goodies. I am very interested in your new camera, are you serious about not using a flash? Your pics are just beautiful, so bright. If that's the case I'm gonna have to buy one. LOL
Blessings, Shirl

What a fun post Diane! Your siblings are all so close in age! My husband is also one of seven from a Catholic family. I think maybe we gotten away from a good thing. Large close families mean lots more love! Glad you had such a fun time. Easter decorations to die for as usual! E
