Graduations and Diagrams

FOR THOSE WHO STOPPED BY EARLIER THIS MORNING I WANT TO APOLOGIZE FOR THE BLOG MESS UP.  SOMEHOW IT POSTED WITHOUT ME FINISHING IT.

Hello everyone, and belated happy Mother's day.  I hope that all of you who celebrated Mother's day yesterday had a great one.  I celebrated mine with the kids after my daughters college graduation.

The whole day was slightly marred by Mother Nature, making sure we all gave her props on this Mother's day weekend.  LOL.  The rain did wait until after the graduation started before it started POURING down.  After the very emotional graduation; all parents that I saw were in tears, all graduates had tired and stress-filled smiles; there was no time to take pictures and no one was hanging around.  The weather was just not conducive for that.  There was so many students in this graduating class that there was 3 graduations.  My daughter was in the second graduation.  There was 539 people in her graduation!  So you can see that it was chaos afterwards.  We ran out of town as fast as weather possible and had a celebration dinner.

I had thought about giving her the amulet bag at dinner but instead I gave it to her Thursday night after I got home from work.  Now let me say this, my daughter is a habitual worrier and when my son found out she was gonna wash her hair and get ready for bed he told her to wait until I got home because I had to talk to her.

Halfway home I get a call from her wondering if everything is ok.  After we talked she figured something was wrong but decided to wait for me to get home.  I gave her a gift from a friend of mine and then handed her the box from me.  Well, here I will let you see for yourself.

Wasn't that awesome.  There was a lot of tears going on for sure.  Also here is 2 pictures of her and her with the Dean at graduation. 


 Sorry that the picture with her and the Dean is blurry.  I was a bit shaky when I took the picture. 

This was the best Mother's day present I could have ever wished for!

Now over at Every Inchie Monday the theme is Diagram.  I decided on making one of those graph diagrams that show how 2 things intersect on a chart.  I used 4 colors of Delicas.  I like this one.  very, very simple but it does convey the theme.


I also have another beaded piece done but I can not show it until after the 15th when a Facebook challenge on Beadwork Mentoring is over.  So be looking for that next week!  YAY!

Don't forget to fly on over to EIM and check out the great diagrams over there.  Thanks for flying by and checking out my blog
