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!

Squash, Sunflowers and Cloud Pictures

Katie picked our first squash from the garden today.
We watched as the goldfinches feasted on our sunflowers.
We (Mandy and I) have eaten all our onions! They were
tiny and sweet. Even a hummingbird
stopped by...

Katie found snails and horses in the clouds
I found a dragon!

Julie recommended these. Chocolate and peanut butter. Be
still my heart! Heather- We must try them!

I started a new wreath. Can't wait to show you.

I took Katie to her ballet workshop and came home to
this! Mandy had cleaned the kitchen counters (you should have
seen them before!), brought in the garbage cans and recycling,
gave Ruby her eye drops, completed her school work AND
wrote a book review! I was so very proud of her.

New. favorite. drink. Acai Blueberry Pomegranate
Vitamin Water. Mmmmmm. Zero calories and
tastes like heaven.

Off to craft. It's 11:23 and the night is young.:)

I saw a shark in the clouds, just thought you'd like to know that! :)

You inspired me with all your crafting-I took the first step today...First I went to Starbucks, then to the bookstore and read all the craft magazines, then off to JoAnn's fabric/crafts. I read all the magazines and books and looked at all their crafts and material. Then I came home took a hot bath, read a bunch of craft books I have, jotted down some ideas and took a nap! Dima and Ronnie have Noelle so Tim and I are taking off in the morning to hit the coast (we will spend the night, but aren't telling the kids) ;) Ronnie is going to be 20 years old on Sunday can you believe it?! Okay, sorry for the long comment-Just wanted you to be in the know.

Love all your pics
Love you,

I would love to be crafting, sigh, the baby just fell asleep after a three hour scream feast. I know that sooner than later I will have a chance to create like old times :) Hugs to you. Can't wait to see what you are working on.

Sounds like a busy day but a good one! I could not think of a better way to end the day besides crafting. Hope you have a great day today too! Blessings,Karen

Ok.. I need to try the Bugles. I wasn't too sure about those. But, I trust you. You won't steer me wrong, right? Can't wait to see your craftiness! xoxo

I must try that drink! Looking for something tasty and no calories.

Your garden is doing amazing! I already miss my garden and I've only been in Chicago 2 days! Sigh!

Looking forward to seeing that wreath! And could I borrow that daughter of yours? This tiny apartment needs some help getting clean while I unpack! ;-)

I think those bugles need a taste test in our household too! hope you had fun crafting!

We are big on finding the pictures in clouds at our house!

I love your post! It's so inspirational!

Those Bugles are about to devoured by moi as soon as I can get to Target and get them! They probably won't survive the trip home!
