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!

What makes you Happy?

Thought you might like a peek at how my studio is coming along. I have to tell you that it makes me very happy!
Martha Stewart glitter makes me smile...

Embroidery hoops filled with lovely fabric makes me smile! Thanks for sharing this idea, Elise and Jen!

Knock out vibrant colors make me smile!

Sweet birdies made by my friend Jes make me smile!

Taking $1 item and turning into something fabulous makes me smile! (Having a fabulous handy man husband that hangs things for me makes me smile, too. Thanks Sweetie!)

You all know that *buttons* make me smile!:) Having a 6 year old sweetie pie that helps me sort them makes me smile, too....


Rich browns call my name at this wonderful time of year...

But look at the sea of blue!

YEA!!! I've been waiting for the makeover of your little 'house shelf'. You did a fabulous job, it's adorable. I love what you've used it for, as well. Keep up the good work. : )

Brenda Leyland said...

A treasure trove. Everything looks so inviting.... you just want to sit down and create something wonderful!

For one, reading about how other people, like yourself, live life beautifully makes me happy!

Making an apple or cherry crisp on a cool afternoon makes me happy!

Browsing through pretty craft or decorating or cook books makes me happy! It also makes me hungry to do something creative!
