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

Getting The Creativity Going

Well. I am feeling so much better !! It is amazing what the B.R.A.T. diet can do for your tummy. Banana's, Rice, Applesauce and Toast. Yep, 7 full days of it. I am ready to go Knock off a Crispy Creme store !! Picture this, ski mask, dark glasses and a menopausal woman ambushing the local Burger King. " Give me the fries , and no one gets hurt !" lol. Seriously , I am excited to eat real food again. I think I have a few more days of this diet though before I can add other fruits, yogurt and maybe some pasta. What a treat it will be though !!
I have started working again, and am mowing my way through the paper stuff. I had so much fun making these tags for etsy, and I have made a few cards as well. I am also working on a few collages, and other neat things. It is so hard to stop once I get going, I glance over at the clock and it is 2:30 am. Where do the hours go ?







I just love these cards !! I made the envelopes to match. Not Very Christmasy, but I needed a break from all of the Christmas items I am finishing up. These just turned out so sweet !!
On another note, the last of our kids has moved out. He is renting a house with a few other boys. I have possession of a new craft room !! Yay !! We plan on painting it soon, and moving everything into it in the next week or two. How exciting to have all the Stash contained into one room. Our whole house sort of got taken over with ribbons, and papers, and fabric and paints. I don't know who did all that mess. Couldn't have been ME..................lol.

Oh, your cards and tags are absolutely beautiful. I think it must
be because my favorite color is pink.
Pink and green. I love your blog. I know what you mean about your kids leaving. I have two down and four to go. Do you think I will ever have an
empty nest? I don't think so... Its ok though

Your tags are charming!!! Hey!I"ve been on that "diet" before...nasty!! I took over my daughters room when she moved out...but my stuff still finds its way into every room of the house! Glad you're feeling better! I just made my first "fall tag" let me know what you think. I put it on my blog just now. Laurie

Bertie said...

I can't believe it!! I can finally post on your blog. I can't tell you the number of times I tried and could not get it to stop with the little security warning box long enough to write a note.

Anyhoo, love your tags and the lace card and envelope are just my style! Are you going to sell these on etsy, too? I'm just drooling over them.
