After many requests, I have created a little e-kit for you to foofy up your own party crows! Not only do the hats work well for Halloween, they work anytime you're feelin' like celebrating something. A little batch of New... Continue reading

I am going to jump in here....Vicki, you said, in a very spot-on way, what I was TRYING to say in my post. What I struggle with (and I think some others out there have experienced this as well, judging from some of the comments) is that when push comes to shove, it is in fact, the little things in life, the day to day minutia, that is what it's all about. Being happy...being content, and feeling secure, and yes, feeling LOVED..is what matters at the end of the day. It's not the holidays, and Super Bowls, but rather,it is the Saturday mornings and Tuesday nights, sitting across the table (or on the sofa) sharing your heart, and letting the other person know that you're glad you have them to come home to. Feeling like, no matter how ugly life can get OUTSIDE, coming home is where your biggest fan is, and where you feel loved, respected, and appreciated and valued. Treasured. It IS personal, as Vicki said. It DOES cut pretty darned deep when you feel like your affection is one sided. (let's remember that I seem to have a history of this in matters of the heart.) I want you all to know that I appreciate ALL of your comments, whether you see it as I do, or not. You always give me perspective with your thoughts, and I value your opinions.

In matters of the heart, just when you think you have it all figured out, you don't. I get a little weary at times, from spending so much of my time seemingly having my character built. Or maybe it's just... Continue reading

Guilty pleasure confession time here today. Although I don't seem to do it as often as I have in the past, or would like to, I've got a passion for entertaining, and table scapes in particular. No, that is not... Continue reading
