I live in the world of grandbabies. My world revolves around my babies. I am so blessed that 3 of the grandbabies (oh ya and their parents too ..lol) live on the opposite end of our house. They give Nana a reason to get out of bed in the morning! My other grandbabies come and visit too, and Nana loves having them visit too! Everyone that said grandbabies are more fun than your own children were right. All this time I thought they were crazy, until I got my first grandbaby. I am still in awe over how much you can love a child that you didn't give birth to. Of course I love my daughters too, but not near as much as my grandbabies! lol Nana loves you Kaylee, Allan, Clayton, Isabel, and Keegan!

Since I am a list maker, to keep myself organized, I decided to make a fancy notebook, and a couple post it note holders for my organizational projects. My granddaughter, who I love "Beary" much loves her new notebook, and the post it notes work great by the phone, and in the car! The bears are from the Hugs and Kisses Valentine's Bears Set. You can find this set under New Items on Paper Piecings by Nikki's website, just click on the PPbN icon on the top right side of my blog and it will take you to the PPbN website.
