Hey ya'll! Are you ready for the weekend???? woo hoo!
I just wanted to check in as I am STILL unpacking slowly from my Texas trip...only to be packing up again shortly to head to Savannah for Jenn's event!
But I'll talk more about all that later...I'm not flying out until the 21st. Maybe next week I'll show you what I created with the quilt I cut up for one of the Savannah swaps!
Right now, I want to BRAG and BRAG and BRAG about my wonderful new blog background made JUST for me by...
Most of you know her as Karen of My Desert Cottage.
She's started her new web site design and she is bringing beauty to blog land! I just love her slogan..."Building Beautiful Blogs".
I always knew she was talented but...I experienced it first hand. Professional and patient, she impressed me with her first design she made me! She actually knew me and knew what I loved. She took that and she worked her background
magic talent all around the header that I made with some of my recent favorite photos. She's amazing!!!!
I'm a happy girl as I feel like I've been to the spa and was treated to a total head-to-toe! Don't I look good? ;)
All compliments go straight to Karen! I did nothing but sit back and relax!!! :)))
If you'd like to see her other creations, you can go straight to her design site by clicking on her logo above. You will see all of the other blogs she has worked her
magic talent on...they are fabulous!
And speaking of my new header above, well...there is a reason for the inspiration! If you've read my last three posts, then you're aware that I went to Round Top and met some FaBuLoUs friends and snapped some awesome photos of favorite finds. Do you see that wooden box? Well, that was a surprise!
What I haven't had the chance to share with you since my return was my new
fwiend friend that I met when I arrived back home.
Lisa and her family were traveling through two states for the Easter holiday and I found myself lucky to be right smack in the middle of her route! They stopped for the afternoon and I tried my best to wine and dine them and their triplets too!
I took Lisa on a tour of my favorite place to shop...
fed them some yummy Louisiana crawfish...
and in return, she showered me with this beautiful wooden box full of this...
a cemetery photo (I love all things death) ~ does that sound bad?
a beautiful handmade tag (I love the image!)...
some awesome Prima flowers...
and best of all, three of her handmade resin charms!!!! Wow!!!
And there's more! There's a lot more but I'm still weak from all the excitement! All of this in that beautiful wooden box. So now do you see why I was so inspired?
I'm sure you already know Lisa, (like who doesn't?) but if you don't...she's well worth the visit.
Tell her your Cajun friend sent you!
My boys are going to the races for the whole weekend and Sarah's husband is working.
Soooo, what are two single crafty girls to do all weekend? We are having a sleep-over with movies, junk food and the strong possibility of an all-nighter studio lock down! :)))
But first, we are going to hit the Spring Antique Fair at the Old School House in Washington, Louisiana. I posted about it once before here...I love it! And the weather is going to be gorgeous!
This is a new year and I feel wonderful. I've met new friends, bonded with some old friends, traveled around the world already (so it seems) and I have many more trips planned throughout the year. For the past 4 months, I'm learning to nurture my feelings, realizing that it's the simple things in life that make me happy. I'm getting back to basics and doing what floats MY boat. I guess that's the "leader" in me as I'm not much of a follower. I like things at my own pace, mostly because I love to create and savor each positive moment.
After all, life is all about creating wonderful memories, isn't it?
Are you creating wonderful memories for yourself?
are you living in the clouds of someone else's dreams?
Think about it...and have a wonderfully creative weekend!
This one's for you...
Go create your own dream so it can evolve into a wonderful memory!
