Naturalization test!





I passed the test for my naturalization! YAY!
Feels so good! I don't have to worry anymore...
I got there and they told me that my finger prints did not get approved again!
So i am on my way tomorrow to get a criminal record check.
Then i will drop it or mail it.
Then, i will get a letter in the mail for my Oath Ceremony date....
Almost there...
THANK YOU for your encouragements!...Feels so good to get support from all of you!

I have a little craft inspiration for you....


So i have this set of 3 vases with flowers...
You could spend $100 or make them...
First grab 3 vases with different sizes...
Rocks, moss and silk flowers...


Fill with rocks, then moss, then place your flowers in pot. Always in Odd numbers. 1,3,5....


Here is the smallest vase...


The medium size...


And the biggest...


In the dining room windows...
It looks great grouped together...You could do Sunflowers in summer...replace the flowers with the season...
Do pink flowers on a shelf in a little girls room...SUPER cute!

Check your link on my side bar, by day of your party!

Way to go Frenchy. Those questions were really hard. I have to be fingerprinted for every school I work at. My ridges are worn off and they can't get them to go through. The last time it took 5 tries. It is a pain.
Love the flowers and those windows. (((HUGS)))

Congratulations to you. We, who are citizens by birth, don't realize how difficult it is for those who wish to be citizens and I applaud you for persevering. We will celebrate with you when it is all over.

Lovely arrangements and so simple to do.

Congratulations (even though I know I'm behind on this story)! I was just a kid when my parents took the difficult road towards making us American citizens, but I know that it was a struggle (and so many people all over the world are still waiting, hoping, and praying for their chance).
