Impressions by Amannda

About one and half years ago I started making these fun signs. I have two different techniques. One using a router (the letters are carved out), the second is more of a stencil technique. The blocks that say "Hannah" were done using the router. The blocks that say "Connor" were done using the stencil technique.

I had my things displayed in a boutique, but once I received my calling as Relief Society President is was too much for me to keep up with. I was very pleased to get a call today from an individual who had seen my things at the boutique. I'm delighted to do special orders, and hope these photos can help you decide what you would like done for your home.

These are some things that I have done for myself.

The Large signs: $20.00 (example Ashby family, Little hands )

Med. sign: $15.00 (Freedom)

Blocks: $2.50 per block

Embelsihments: $1.00 each (Hearts, stars)


Here are some examples of signs that I have made. These Signs are for sale. they are priced at $15.00 each. The pillows with the "born to be wild" are an additional $10.00

My Dad has been doing business in china, and on one of his trips he got all of us a Chinese outfit. I thought it would be fun to have our picutre done, so that once we out grow the outfits we still have something to remeber them with!

I can LINK!

Thanks Adhis! for sending that tagged by an Angel. I'm sure some people may have gotten it twice I really tried to make sure you ladies that I sent it to didn't all ready have it. I hope that was true. It took me a LONG time. Paul, even made dinner while I sat up here and blogged. his comment to me, "so, you just going to blog all day." Well, it didn't take all day but I finally figured out how to link other blogs to mine (with the help from Paul). I've really enjoyed getting to know other families through technology! and know it will be even easier to read others blogs because I don't have to go to Adhis' blog just to read others. Thanks Adhis. I've enjoyed this new hobby. It is fun to be able to use as a journal to share with others.

3 Joys

1. Three happy kids

2. I love swimming and being in the sun!

3. Snuggling up to my movie buddy (Paul)!

3 Fears

1. Being alone. I need loved ones close to me. As a child it was my parents and as an adult it is my husband.

2. Failing, I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I fear disappointing others or myself.

3. I have always had a fear of being over weight.

3 Goals:

1. Being on TV. I mostly like being in front of people!

2. Always learning or trying something new. This is an on going goal.

3. I have always had a goal to have a six pack (ABS)!

3. Obsessions/Collections

1. Paul and I started collecting precious moment figurines. We get a new one for each anniversary.

2. I am obsessed with having the laundry done. Before I was married I did my laundry in a bathrobe so every thing could be cleaned at one time, but now I just try to keep up with the laundry.

3. I collect wood. I love to have pieces of wood around just in case I come up with some fun little craft I want to make.

3. random facts about me

1. I hate math. I don't add and subtract very well, so I have always hated games if adding is involved. Simply because I hate feeling stupid.

2. I love to workout. It's hard some days to want to get out of bed, but I love it when my muscles are sore and I know they are getting stronger.

3. At sixteen I wanted three kids a boy and two girls. I wanted to name one of my girls Hannah Rose and the other Josephine Elizabeth. I ended up with three kids girl, boy, girl. I got my Hannah Ros, and Bonnie Elizabeth.

BONNIE Dosen't she look Beautiful!
Hannah Looking SOOOO GOOD!

It's been a while, but I couldn't pass up posting my girls night. I think this is my very first outing just with my girls.

They had lots of fun doing makeup and having their nails painted. I sure am lucky to have a couple of chicks to hang out with!
