Today is a day of many things. 9/11. Grandparents Day. Patriots Day. The 10 year anniversary of 9/11. Steeler Sunday. I started the day by watching some of the ceremony in NYC. I know exactly where I was 10 years ago today. Not only do I know where I was, I remember being even more scared because once the air traffic was halted that left my father half way across the country.
In the months and years immediately following 9/11 I would meet some people that were directly affected by the tragedy. People that lost more than one loved one, friend or family member. People that went to Ground Zero to help. Thank you to everyone that needs thanked and prayers to everyone that needs a prayer. I will never forget.
Today is also Grandparents Day. I had the pleasure of working on a couple Grandparent's Day projects this week with our girlfriend Steph. We made two calendars and an explosion box. The explosion box was my first attempt. I am definitely in love with the concept and will be making some more!
The box had three layers. One 12x12 square, one 11x11square, and one 10x10 square. The lid was made from an 8x8 square. I wish I could tell you more about the paper and embellishments, but I can't. They were in the stash.
(Again GO STEELERS!)
The glue I used to glue the lid together. A little definitely seemed to go a long way!
I am not including photos of the calendars but they turned out cute too!
Happy Grandparent's Day Grandma, Grandma and Gigi!!! Love Brenden!!!!!
Happy Grandparent's Day to all of our Grandparents too. We love each of you bunches!!! xoxo
(oh and despite the loss, we love our Steelers too!!)
