About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Mermaid Swap Goodies

Look what my lovely partner, Peggi, sent me for the mermaid swap!  She is such a sweetheart and sent my package so it would be at my house when I got back from the beach.:-)  She made me a lovely mermaid card and a GORGEOUS framed mermaid accented with paint, beads and everything nice!  She also gave me beading accessories in colors of the ocean, stickers, and all the items I need to give ATC's (artist trading cards) a try!  I had never heard of ATC's before and she gave me quite an education!  Peggi also made me a sweet mermaid crown, but my girls have decided to "adopt" it so it is MIA- lol!  It was made with mother of pearl shells and so pretty!  We oohed and aahed at everything as I opened all my beautiful treasures.  Thanks so much,Peggi, I feel so spoiled!  Take a peek at her blog- Desert Photography (under Blogs That Inspire Me)- it is a treat for the eyes and ears!

Hi LL -

What pretty treasures you received! I love those vintage images. Welcome to the world of ATC's, but be careful, they are addicting!!

Hi, Lori! Sorry I haven't been on for a while, did you enjoy your trip? It certainly looks like it! Your stuff is so pretty! Paper art, ATC's, altered art, and vintage stuff is what I love the most! That kind of art is so fun and beautiful. Have fun! Jeri

The mermaid swap was fun. The things you got are really pretty. I loved the things that I got from my partner too.
