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!

Sensational Susie!

You know that I have been busy making *posh* clothespins- and having a ball! (By the way, the winners of my giveaway were Jill and Fran! Congratulations, Sweets!)
I am now happily using them on my new Inspiration Board! Yes, my sweet, wonderful husband made it for me last weekend!

Remember this Sad little Susie? Well, her day had arrived and she was transformed into a Sensational Susie!:)

I plan on hanging these Circles of JOY around my inspiration board! They make me happy just looking at them! If I could do cartwheels, I would!:)

Oh, and in my studio I have started to display some of my favorite little treasures that my friends have sent me... The room is absolutely filled with love, joy and happiness!
This precious bird house is from my dear friend, Joy!

And look at this sweet TWEET from my wonderful friend, Val!

Another lovely PEEP from my west coast buddy, Jes!

I am loving this treasure from my friend, Jen!

Here is the inspiration board again! My clothespin is holding a tag from JES! LOVE it!

I painted Sensational Susie a robin's egg blue and my dear husband added burlap and chicken wire. She is so happy now- and so am I!!! (I believe the tag is from Amy! One of my favorites!)

Oh! look on the left! There is a picture of my English sister, Lindsay, and our precious cousin, Jessica!

I have only begun to fill her up! I cannot wait to hang bits and pieces of things that inspire me and give me joy!

Yesterday was a hot one! We spent a good part of the day at the library to escape the heat and then we headed to the park! The kids were such good sports to tolerate a photo shoot.:)

Hope you are all having a fabulous day!

Hi Lori
Your inspiration board looks wonderful. I love the blue color and what a great idea to use chicken wire. Jeff did a great job transforming Susie for you. It's such a great place to display all your lovely tags and treasures that are so precious. You are loved by so many of your friends Lori. Thanks for sharing the cute picture of Katie and her friends at the park. Jessica is always interested to see what her cousins are doing.
