Samantha

Remember Samantha? I introduced her in this post. Well, she's here! She came up to Tennessee for a four-day weekend. Today we went to the Adventure Science Center in Nashville, but first stopped for some BBQ and finished off the day with a stop at an old fashioned ice cream parlor and a souvenir shop. We also did some crafting. Her big sis, Chelsea, is off to college this fall, so we decided to make a picture frame for her dorm room. Samantha picked out all the colors, and I assembled the project out of a broken Goodwill frame. I designed it to be used vertically or horizontally. It didn't have any glass, so instead I attached a clip with a brad so she can change the picture easily as often as she changes boyfriends! Hmmm... maybe I'm thinking of my own dating life. Oh, and that's still as lame as ever if you're wondering. I'm still signed up for four different dating sites with meager results so far. I've had dates here and there, but they seem more self-obligatory. I have to convince myself more and more that I need to keep myself in the game rather than being unrealistic in thinking Mr. Right will just happen to knock on my door because he needed to use a tire iron after his car got a flat in my culdosac while en route to the emergency room where he's a medical intern. He also has a Yorkie and arranges flowers for the elderly on the weekends. Oh, and he loves his scrapbooking mother. Anyway... here's the frame:

Hey There
Really like the frames and what a great idea using the brad and clip to hold the picture! Never would have thought of that, how was your trip to NY , did you get to see anymore of the city this time around?

As far as dating is concerned I'm at the smae situation as you are, but you know 'always look on a bright side of life...'

have a nice day!

LOL, your description of Mr Right just cracked me up! :-D
I met my hubby when he was an intern in the ER (I was working there as a nurse)...
I think you really never know where you will meet the right person for you, I guess it's what makes it bearable to wait because the first butterflies in the stomach are the best! :-)

I love your frame, it's a great idea to have this little clip in the middle! :-)
