all better now.....

Beginning to feel like my old self again.:o)  Thanks to each of you for your well wishes.  You all are certainly a great bunch!:o) 

Well I knew it would happen, but I just didn't know when....the paper bug has bitten again.  I spent a great part of yesterday pulling out all my paper goodies including stamps, punches, trimmers, stickers, clip art, embossing plates, ribbon and more!  It is time to create with paper and I am so excited!:o)  My little tea time shop on Etsy has been sitting waiting for me to return and that time has certainly come.

I have so many new ideas to share with you!  I've promised myself to use just what I have in my stash, but will have to purchase a few new things I need.  Using up my stash is pushing me to be creative in a new way.:o)  When you love paper like I do it can be kinda hard not to go paper shopping, but nope no paper shopping for me.:o) 

I hope to have lots of pretty things to show in the coming weeks.  My goal is to be ready for Christmas in July!  By the way, I am so looking forward to visiting each of you in the coming days.  I've missed you for sure!:o)  Enjoy a lovely Memorial Day!

You never know just what a day or a week will bring.:o)  Last week was spent nursing a bad cold/flu that really had me good!  I am feeling much better, though I am still coughing with a slight sore throat and sneezes here and there,  woe is me.:o(  I try so hard not to catch cold, but oh my this one grabbed me and refused to let go.:o) 

I hope each of you enjoyed a lovely weekend and looking to a beautiful week ahead.  I plan to take it easy again this week.   My "to do" list is growing but will have to wait.  I am using this little respite to catch up on my knitting and do some reading.  Each of you enjoy a lovely week!  Will chat with you in a few days♥

just a little under......

 Hello all!  I see Blogger has fixed its problem and we can continue to comment with ease.  For a moment I thought maybe is was my computer, but soon found out it was certainly Blogger.  I hope each of you enjoyed a lovely weekend.  Mine was spent nursing a sore throat and a cough.  I am one of those who seem not to catch cold often, maybe every three years or so, but when I do it seems to make up for lost time.:o)  So it has been lots of fluid, Tylenol and cough drops for me.  The worse part is the headache, boy does it hurt and I don't like it at all.

I made this sweet little card for a friend of my daughter who is having a little boy.:o)  I could not resist using this sweet bunny, so cute!:o)  This sweet bunny image came from Piddix, a wonderful Etsy shop with beautiful vintage images.  What makes Piddix special is the fact that all images in her beautiful shop she either owns the rights to or are completely in the public domain, I love that!  This allows me to design with confidence.  I've been using her images for quite a while and love them!  

I hope to be feeling much better in a few days, I have lots of work to do.:o)  Each of you enjoy a beautiful week.  I'll be by in few days to say hello♥

lots of little things.....

The morning is quiet, beautiful, still....the breezes gentle, giving just enough to gently sway the leaves beneath it.  Quiet mornings are indeed something special.  The kind of morning that beckons you to sit still and listen if even for a moment. 

The week will be a busy one for me with new projects, promises to complete, organizing, along with a few other things that must be crossed off my little "to do" list.:o)   What's in store for you this week?  Whatever it is, be sure and make it a beautiful one.  Happy week to each and everyone.  Chat with you soon♥

Happy Mother's Day!

Mothers are sooooo special!  Happy Mother's Day to all you sweet Moms!  Enjoy each and every moment of your day!  

A Mother's Love

There are times when only a mother's love
Can understand our tears,
Can soothe our disappoints
And calm all of our fears.

There are times when a mother's love
Can share the joy we feel
When something we've dreamed about
Quite suddenly is real.

There are times when only a mother's faith
Can help us on the life's way
And inspire in us the confidence
We need from day to day.

For a mother's heart and a mother's faith
And a mother's steadfast love
Were fashioned by the angels
And sent from God above.
