…life continues to be busy, and time continues to speed past me.
I’ve been staring at this post, wanting to write, but at the same time almost feeling guilty of feeling so blessed when all around me there is heartbreak and devastation taking place. My thoughts and prayers to the people of Oklahoma, the young girl who was found murdered locally, and the gentleman who jumped off the bridge…
Last week Olivers brother, Chaz, came to live with us. They are so much fun! We’ve had a few altercations between the two, but no one has been injured.
I am still working on organizing the studio. I found a number of trading cards, and a few projects that I received when I attended CKU one year. I believe this Perfect just the way you create was a Donna Downey make and take.
Oprah inspired me with an assignment…
Take 5 minutes | Write down your life dream | Set a due date
This was an easy assignment for me. I didn’t need to take 5 minutes to think about my life dream, and I know that those who know me well can attest to that.
Paris | September 2014
One way or another, I have to make this happen.
Last December I placed an order thru a local hardware store to complete my pottery collection, and the pieces arrived last week. Knowing that each piece was made especially for me makes them that much more special.
Each piece was chosen randomly, and represents the birthplaces of each of us. Keith, Bangor | Me, Boston | Toni, Ellsworth | Reggie, Portsmouth | Matthew, Austin | Oliver and Chaz, Verona Island | –I have two other pieces; Sandy Point, town Keith and I were married in | and Bucksport, our first home.
Stace delivered the new Stampin Up! catalog, and a few cards for me this weekend, and I was seriously drooling! I am so excited about this new catalog, and am loving the new stamps. Mark your calendar, and order from me in September!
I am putting together a small on the go project life kit, and found this adorable little pouch that the UPS guy just delivered…
You love it, don’t you?! The opposite side has different camera designs on it.
Today is day 172 of Reggie being in Kandahar, Afghanistan. For almost half a year my heart has been breaking, and I am so anxious for his deployment to conclude.
On that note, I am going to close down as this post is getting long. Be well folks, and take care. Until next time…
