My husband is being promoted to Senior Chief in the United States Coast Guard tomorrow.  We are having a little luncheon after the ceremony.  I made these cute little CG tags and attached them to peppermint patties.  I printed out Coast Guard emblems and used my circle punch to cut them out.  Then, layered them on circle cut red card stock and blue scalloped card stock.  My original thought was the tag would cover the entire peppermint patty wrapper but apparently they changed their packaging.  So this is what we have. 

Congrats to my dear sweet husband who has kicked butt and made Senior Chief in 13 years of enlisted service!!

A painting

Hello there!  My very first post- how fun!  I was browsing blogs a few weeks ago.  I came across this wonderful blog

I am not a painter by any means.  However, I wanted something to hang on a blank wall in our bedroom.  So I followed the tutorial at A Crummy Marriage and I really like how it turned out.  So a big thank you to A Crummy Marriage Blog for your inspiration and great tutorial!

Here is what my finished product looks like.  Have a great day!
