Wednesday Words

Still no crafting...just work and more work. I must confess, I am enjoying these weeks of working, perhaps because I know that in a couple of weeks, I will be back at home, happily ensconsed in my scraproom! Our evenings have been just as busy as our days this week. Our 21 year old son is preaching his first week-long Revival at our church. It has been awesome....Hope you have a great day.

Just Words!

I have nothing creative today....too busy this week to even walk into my craft room, let alone make something :) Oh well, maybe soon. It is a beautiful, sunny, spring day here and I am rushing through housework and laundry to get a couple of hours in the sun! Ahhh....sweet warm rays! Hope you all have a great day!

Hippity...Hoppity....Easter's On Its Way

I love Easter...everything about is my all-time favorite Holy Day! I love the fact that Jesus Christ paid the price for my sins and rose from the dead! I am thankful that I have accepted Him as my Savior! I love bright Spring sunshine and new blooms peeking through the branches of a neighboring crabapple tree! I love Easter Eggs....everything about them...from their bright colors to the squeals of delight when a child finds one. (I am prepared for my Sunday School Class to find the 120 or so that I have prepared for them :) I even love peeling away the pretty shell and eating a couple during the hunt. (I know, I know, salmonella risk:) I just love the Day! And this coming Easter, we have ALL day activities at our Church, beginning at 6AM and lasting probably until 6PM!

In honor of the decorations for our Easter Breakfast and Dinner....I have made a variety of decorated eggs to put on the pretty grasses running along the centers of our dining tables. I have foiled, tissued, decoupaged, glittered, bling-ed, painted and stickered. All that is left is decorating a few "REAL" eggs just for the fun of it. I look forward to those the most. My niece, Amber, has generously shared a couple dozen bantum eggs from her farm for my coloring pleasure. They are small and are the kind that my sweet Grandparents colored for me as a child. What precious memories!

Also, I wanted to include a glimpse of Packer Puppy on his very first "outdoor activity." He is my rescue Puppy and in light of his verrry difficult beginning, is only now strong enough and warm enough, thanks to his new coat,to be out of doors. This is him taking his first walk around the yard. He loved the grass...the butterflies...a leaf blowing in the wind! He hated the neighbor's lawnmower....the neighbor's dog....and the neighbor! Oh well, baby steps!

Saturday Sunshine

What a beautiful Sunny Saturday we are having! It is still cool and breezy, but supposed to warm to near 70* today and warmer tomorrow! Whew.....I am loving it! I do have a hard time trying to blog on pretty days. The sunshine makes me want to go for walks, do house and yard work and daydream!

I did make a card earlier today. I loved the aged look of these DCWV Papers that I found at a discount store yesterday. The colors are muted and favorite kind. I also used a Prima Butterfly, Image Tree Stamp, Martha Stewart Ink and for my 3-D effect, Cuttlebug Textile Folder.

I didn't have a hand in creating this next pic, but I sure get to enjoy God's handywork! Don't you just love it when everything begins to bloom? Hubby cut the grass the other day and the smell transported me from Winter to Spring in one sniff. (I also had a bit of allergy flare up, but who's complaining :)

Have a great day!

Bright, Bright, Sunshiny Day!

It is a Gorgeous day here in my part of the world. Beautiful sunshine, temperatures in the mid 60's. Aah....Spring at last! I have had a pleasant day. I went with my sister to take our Dad to an appointment this morning. It is always a pleasure to be with them. Then, hubby and I went out for lunch before he left for work this afternoon. When I got home, I broke the leaf rake out of hiding and did an hour and a half of yard work. I will probably be unable to lift my arms tomorrow, but it sure felt good today!

I took half an hour to sit at my scrap desk and this is what I came up with today. A bright and happy card! Isn't this cupcake scrumptous? And not a calorie in it! Enjoy!
