LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Back in Business !!

Well, I have to say, I am back to pretty much my old self !! Yeah !! Still eating on the bland side, but feeling Wonderful and I am back to work. Not that this stuff is Really Work !! More like Fun for a Living !! Now how many people can say that ? This post is all about the pictures. This is how I spent my week. I made a few cards and more tags ( Cant stop, I am obsessed !! ) and this SWEET ballerina collage. I just Love her !! And, she is pose able ( gotta quit playing with the paper doll !! ) I need to make me one !!

Then, because I was so inspired by all of the beautiful Tea Parties that everyone had , I painted up a few Tea things for eBay. I definitely want in on the next Virtual Tea Party Week ( When I can actually Eat all the goodies !! lol )


And Then on to Christmas, I painted this sweet pink house. Gotta love that !! My sweet Husband bought me the one under glass last year from Wally World. ( I was really digging some of the cool stuff Wal Mart had last year !! )

The most fun was these Hand beaded/ sequined ornaments. I have been making them for months and have a nice little stash of them. These are special to my heart. My sweet Great Grandma made this type of ornament for years. She made Hundreds !! She always was working on one. I will post some pics of hers when we drag out all the Christmas stuff. I am proud to carry on this tradition, although I have brought them up to date in shabby style. Anyhow, That has pretty much been my week. I haven't left the house once. lol Crafting Fool !!!

Oh Rhea! I can comment on your blog now, finally! I love all your work, and really love those nostalgic beaded and sequined heart ones. I'm making my kids some felt stuff for Christmas this year. I love the whimsy and nostalgia of it, but with a fresh approach. So glad you're feeling better.
