I went away this past weekend with 9 other women on a Scrapping/Stamping retreat. It was fun, relaxing and quite enjoyable. On Friday night as we were all busy with our noses deep in our work I asked the group what they thought my theme should be. After I gave them the details and showed them this piece of paper
My Theme is a
Year in the Life of the Swanson's
My wonderfully funny girlfriend Misty (in her most appropriate "Fargo" voice) helped narrate the story however this was truely a bunch of crazy girls with a story to tell.....Here goes
Meet the Swanson's. We have Margie (Margaret) age 26 and Neal age 30 along with their children Suzie age 6 and Johnny age 3 with a Birthday coming up. The Swanson's live at 2573 Meadow Lane in the town of Red Bud. (We couldn't decide on a state). The house is a Colonial Revival and was given to them by Margie's Grandfather as a wedding gift 7 years earlier. Neal was a football star in College and after graduating landed a job as an accountant with Ford Motor Company. He takes pride in his lawn and in his spare time enjoys woodworking. He bowls with College buddies every Thursday night. Margie enjoys all the frills of being a stay at home mom. She loves cooking, sewing and decorating and general crafts. On Monday mornings she attends a Bible study class at St Marks Lutheran Church. Suzie attends 1st grade at Pinewood Elementary and her best friend, Julie lives directly across the street. Johnny will start Preschool
next year at St Marks Lutheran Church 3 days a week. The Swanson's have one dog and his name is buddy. If your curious what happens tune in next month and see what this "Charming" family is up too!
My paper choice is October Afternoon's Modern Homemaker. I have 2 lifetimes worth of stuff. While I could have done without a paper purchase I couldn't resist this line by OA. So I jumped at the opportunity and the rest I will just figure out as I go along.
