a little break......


Hello friends!   I hope you enjoyed a lovely Sunday and looking forward to a beautiful week.  A rose from my photo archives for you.  Oh the beautiful rose, indeed a lovely flower.

In just a few days Honey and I celebrate 37 years of marriage.:o)   Tuesday, January 18th, is the day and we are certainly excited!  I love my little Honey and my Honey loves me.:o)   After all these years he continues to make me smile.  I'll be taking a little blogging break and will be returning just in time for Valentine's Day.   Take care dear friends!   Chat with you in a few weeks.

If I could reach and hold
a star for every time you've made me smile,
the entire evening sky would be in the palm
of my hand.

new discoveries......


Hello all!  Hope your new year is moving right along just beautifully.  I tell you time sure does seem to fly; we are more than a week into our new year already!   I must say it has been a lovely past week.  I spent the past few days putting together little packages to be gifted.  I am a little late in getting them out, but I am finally catching up with it all.:o)

I've also spent a little time with "youtube" learning how to make resin pendants.  Wow I tell you "youtube" is one great place for us crafters to learn new stuff!:o)  I had seen these lovely pendants and fell in love with them, but had no idea just how they were made.  Well after a few hours with "youtube" I was confident I could do it and even found out I could use glass instead of resin, just as pretty and a lot less work.:o)  After a few tries and a few ruined pendant trays I had it!  I think the results are lovely and love the digital artwork I chose.

I also knew I was on to something when my fifteen year old granddaughter insisted I make her another soon, she really loved it.:o)  As for me, anything with roses and pretty crowns is a winner in my book.  I think I will make a few more of these for sure.:o)   Though it is quite early in the new year have you made any new little discoveries just yet?  Happy week to you dear friends.  Enjoy a beautiful week.
