As you can see I got a bunch of " goodies ". I went in to look and came out with a bag of stuff.
The Paper is My minds eye. This is the first time I have ever seen this paper. I have seen many cards made with it . So happy when it was at Hobby Lobby. Not on sale at this time but I had to get some
before my chance ran out. The next week it went on sale. So YES I got more. Why not?

I got the photo album because I took some pictures out of picture frames and have never worked on a scrapbook. Thought this would be a great time to try my hand at it. I have 2 planned but none have been
started on. Who knows if I will ever get it done. My guess is never. I hate to say it, but who knows myself better then me but me.

I had a lot of fun making cards with my new paper, lace and embellishments. Pic to come soon.

Now go and create something.


Have you ever stood an egg on it's side
on the first day of spring? My mother and I
do this every year. It always works. Sometimes it takes longer then others. I have given up
too. This year it lasted till I took it down. My
Mother's lasted for 24 hours and then it fell over.

Try it next spring if you remember.

Dreaming of Cleaning.

I've been wanting to do some real cleaning out. Throwing or storing, whatever it takes. It has made me restless. By the time I get home from work I'm ready to rest a little and my Grandson wants me to play with him. And so the story goes. I don't get anything done. I look at my crap and think do I really need this? Probably not. Oh my craft and Harp room. I hope to get to it tomorrow. I have the day off so I MUST be a task master and make myself organize and throw.

I started another little craft....Beading. Something for my cards, bit then the wheels started to turn. I wake up at night or early morning with ideas and can't go back to sleep. Wanting to be quiet and not wake anyone else, I can't get started with my ideas. Once they are up, well it's over.

Anyway, Just some random thoughts. Dreaming of the day my house pics could be on my blog for it's beauty and great finds. Till then I read of the blogs that do what I wish I could be doing. And plan for the day I can make it happen.

Have you heard of the "procrastinate"? That is me all the way.
I have to admit it.

Till I return. Blessings to all.

Deer and Swan

Two more things that should have been added to my last post. Deer and Swans.

Monday evening we looked out and A deer was standing just outside our back yard. We
went out to get a closer look. Carrying my 2 year old grandson, we made it out just in time to see it gallop away. My grandson was pretending to gallop away like the deer. Sweet an funny.

Over the years we have seen many deers roam the back field. One winter a BIG buck lay in the snow, so large and majestic watching while his wife and 2 yearlings grazed for food. Such a heartwarming feeling.

Another spring we saw many young deer and several mothers at the same time eating at the edge of the woods. That was a fun day. I think I counted 7 adults and several young.

Swans amaze me to no end. Don't know why. Just that grace they show. They look so loving but I know better. I guess they can be very mean.

Just another short blurp of my life. Take it or leave it. It's all me 100% pure love of nature and all mankind.
