Oh my, Jan, you outdid yourself on that note holder! I am totally LOVIN it! I am pretty loyal to myself as a SU customer, but I may have to get that set from the sink!!

The picture of your girls is a good one too. My DH was raised in the Catholic school systems, so I totally can relate to the graduation being a big deal.

Thanks for all you do for me - I am a loyal daily reader of your blog....


Well, I love your cards as usual, Jan, but I think the most GOJUS thing in this blog post is the pic of your two lovely young ladies!! They are definitely beautiful creations of God!! Laurel looks like a going-to-high-school-soon girl, and Emily looks the part of the proud little sister! What grade will she be in? Why isn't your little guy in the pic? I can identify with the tears, that's for sure. Wait til you get to high school graduation, then college, then the weddings - whoo boy, I need a kleenex!! Grin!

Love ya,


Great colors on the message pad and card, Jan! I loooove the "yada yada yada" and "blah blah blah" together! :)


Love the note holder!! What a great idea. So glad I found your blog! :)


Congratulations, MOM! What, no car?


Warmest congrats, Janine, on Laurel's achievement! And, both your girls' are GAAAAW-JUS! I got misty eyed reading about YOU getting teary, as my oldest, also a daughter, graduates this coming Friday! Where did the years go? *sigh*


Many loving hugs, Julie


Hey Janine, just catching up here, love the new stuff. Awesome note holder idea...I must use this because post it notes are never in the same place twice!!
Laurel {{& Emily}} look GREAT! I heard Laurel got a new do, and boy...she looks all the high schooler now! I LOVE their outfits and the colors!!! Gotta use those too! I have to say I did not cry at Jordans grad today, just happy for all the girls and watching them grow! Yeah, I'm done! Talk to ya soon, P


Hi Jan, I love your blog. I read it everyday, but I have been wondering what the acronym "YILM" stands for??

Thanks and keep up the great are an inspiration!


congrats on your daughter's graduation. and beautiful artwork as always. Lela aka Serenity

Beautiful colors Janine. Beautiful girls too. I can so clearly remember my 8th grade graduation from Catholic WAS a BIG deal (even that long ago)!!
