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, hello, hello all my wonderful family-friends!!!  Although I must admit I've missed you all terribly, I'm having such a grand summer!!!  I hope everyone in blogland is doing well and enjoying the summertime as much as I have so far.

I thought our reunion was great!!!  Others were somewhat disappointed because we didn't have the turn-out expected; there were some who just couldn't afford the trip this year and others who were just unable to get there due to other obligations, but I enjoyed everyone and had such fun!!!  I do have pictures I'll be posting of both reunions and telling you more about it, however, there are some important things I need to give attention to and get out the way first.  Beginning with two (2) blog gifts I won and received from dear friends while I was away, beginning with this beautiful handmade pin is from Christine:

And this fun stamp set from Brenda:

I'd also like to acknowledge and extend my appreciation for the "Stinkin Cute" blog award from my sweet friend Sandy:

Thank you ladies, each of these has been graciously accepted and has truly touched the deepest part of my heart!

Please click on the nanes of my friends to directly link to their blogs; they're all such talented and gifted ladies!

With regards to my June "Pay It Forward" post, I am still waiting for 5 participants who are willing to play along.  I currently have only one (1) commentor who has participated and whom I will be sending one of my handmade projects to as the rules dictate.  If you may have forgotten or are interested, here is a direct link to click on to be linked to the "Pay It Forward" post:  http://cuteandsome.blogspot.com/2011/06/pay-it-forward-very-good-deed-indeed.html .  The rules are listed on this post and your comment(s) can be left on that post.
NOTE:  Brenda, I have your mailing address and your gift will be in the maill to you sometime next week.

Unfortunately friends, I have to run again because I have to begin on a DT project for Pam's blog which is scheduled for tomorrow (Friday, June 15).  I don't have a clue yet what it's going to be and right now my mind isn't cooperating to comr up with anything, but I'll definitely have "something" to share for sure.  Hope you stop by to check out whatever it is I'll come up with -- lol!!!

In the meantime, I'll be dropping in to see what you've been up to as soon as I can after I complete my DT project; and I'll let you know when I have the reunion pictures posted for you.

Wonderful to be back with you, and...

I'll be seeing you!

Audrey, I am so glad that you are back home from Atlanta. It is great to hear that you had a good time. I am still telling everyone here what a great time I had with you. I wish we could have spent more time together. But between my convention and your reunion, we were both so busy. I have been carrying the picture around of us from the John Hancock Building and showing it to all my friends and family. That was just so much fun!! And our lunch was delicious!!! I just know that we will see each other again. I will call you sometime in the next few days.

what a beautiful pin you received! I have our first reunion as well at the end of this month. Luckily our travels will be under 2 hours but an overnight stay is in order. I hope we have a good turn out as well.
