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

Ready For Valentine's Day ??







Can you tell I am feeling better ???? lol. It feels so nice to be back in the studio working again. I managed to get a few things made for Valentines day. I have several more things on my list to make, but feel as though at least I made a dent. :) I cant tell you how much I have missed painting, glueing and glittering. It has been about a month since I last did anything. I am loving making the tussies, although, the prettiest tussies by far are from my sweet friend Ele. I am eating all kinds of stuff now, even had a taco. ( bad girl ) It is amazing how easy it is to go and latch onto the junk food again. lol. No, really I have been good, a few sugar free cookies and two taco's has been it. I have no desire, this new year is all about feeling healthy and regaining energy for Ed and myself. Speaking of the New Year, well, we live in las Vegas !! It will be crazy stupid tonight, we will watch it all on TV, well, if I can stay up past nine. lol. They shoot guns off at midnight here along with a few other stupid tricks. So, we will be safely tucked inside. The Strip is the ultimate in bravery. Nope, not us fools. lol I hope you have a Happy New Year !! Hugs,
Rhea

Hi Rhea,
It's great that you are feeling better. NOOOOO I'm not ready for another holiday!! lol You have made some beautiful things. I know when you're a crafter you have to start early, but I just got my Christmas decorations down tonight and the house back in order. Things look a little bare right now but I'm enjoying it!
