Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

Hello, everyone!  Well, it's taken longer than expected (as in alllllll day!) but my internet -- at least -- is back up.  Unfortunately, there are still a couple of unresolved issues:  my fax line is still not working and there's now static in the lines that wasn't there before.  AT&T will be back out again tomorrow with a more experience technician to test the lines and work at getting to the bottom of this.  But, I can post!!!  YEA!!!

NEW FOLLOWERS!!!  Wow, since I've been "off-line" several new followers have decided to join the family!!!  WELCOME!  I'm always happy for my family to grow; I hope you'll get comfortable and stay awhile.   Thank you for following me, I'm so honored, and can't wait to get to know you!

Okay, of course I have a project to share.  I'm going to call it "Just for Inspiration".  I don't know if I should refer to it as a card or a book, but I don't think it matters.  Here it is the cover:

BELIEVE "Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal."

Here are the inside pages:

DREAM "Live life as if it were created just for you."

LOVE "These are the magic years... and therefore magic days... and therefore magic moments."

As it's taken all afternoon for ADT and AT&T U-verse to get me operable, I'm a bit behind on some chores, so I'm off to take care of a few things I have to get to and then I'll be around to visit with you (saying this with my fingers crossed that nothing else happens)!  LOL!!!

Hope you like my project!!!

Well, lets see...I like anything green, so for starters, I love... I love that it can be a card with several messages and at the same time "they" (the person you give it to) can convert it into a book by adding pics!! so another great project Audrey!!!
Sorry about your Internet... I am battling a virus that won't let me look at any videos and it is not letting me back up!!

Oh Audrey - FABULOUS!! I love this little inspiration book. I think I might make something like this for my MIL.

I missed you while you were gone - then I was gone!! LOL
