Central Coast Wildcat golf shirts

 We have always been a Green & Gold family.  I graduated from MHS and our two older sons graduated there as well.  And now our last one, attends MHS.. So you can imagine that you open any of our closets and Green & Gold is everywhere... Go Dores!

Well, after almost 20 years @ Monterey High School, Chuck has been working at Central Coast High School. The school colors are purple and white.  Do you know how hard it is to find anything Purple in the mens section.. Well, I found a few golf shirts and embroidered Central Coast Wildcats on them.  I love how they turned out.  I just wished they had more shirts.  I could only find 5.  So, that is what I did pretty much all day, embroidered these shirts and watched Chicago lose to Green Bay. So, will it be NY Jets or Steelers joining Green Bay in Dallas for Super Bowl in 2 weeks?  I'm hoping it will be NY Jets...

Well. back to the shirts... how do you like them?

New Year

I am so glad to start a new year. Everyone I know is looking forward to a great 2011.  I never make New Year Resolutions but feel that I need to this year.  I need to balance my family and work.  So, I have made a promise to myself to do something for or with  family or friends each week.  This may just be a phone call to catch up with an old friend or a cup of coffee with a son, sister, brother or dear friend.

So, my new motto is "Love like you have an expiration date!" Life is too short not to enjoy every minute of it with loved ones.

I have been working on some Valentine's Day projects...

Love the penguins....

This one says "I love you" ... this is for Chucky's Birthday.  I am working on his real birthday present but I will have to post that after I give it to him next week.

"I Love You" towel

I made this a movie themed basket for a friend and her family for Christmas. I embroidered the towels with popcorn and candy box.. Filled a popcorn bucket with Mike & Ike candy, licorice, chocolate covered raisins and a DVD. She loved it....

I know, the bow SUCKS!
