My new Ruffle Handbag!!!

OMGosh!! I am so excited about my new handbag! It arrived today & I LOVE it! It was handmade for me by Mary from Sweet Pea Totes!! Isn't it perfect?! And I got a little matching wallet to boot! I cannot express the beauty & quality of this bag enough...the pictures don't do it justice! Check out her blog & website HERE...she does excellent work & has such talent! I just told her I like all shades of greens plus florals & polka dots & this is what she came up with! It came packaged so nice & neat & I am just thrilled with it! I will have to have more of her designs! Thanks so much, Mary for the bag & the great customer service! I'm happy to spread the word!

Hubby & I have been doing a little packing today! Nothing too major, but just enough to remind us both how much we hate this part of moving! I keep trying to picture ourselves all moved in & calm & life going smoothly, so that positive thinking helps make it a little easier! LOL I had really gotten rid of a lot of my stuff prior to moving in to this place, so I really don't have as much junk as I used to! Anyway...that's how my day has gone & I will post more soon!

We're Moving!!

New hubby (aka Jim) & I have found a great house & we are moving in by mid-April! It has a full, finished basement with tons of shelves & cabinets built in, so it's perfect for my craft biz!! I'm going to start having a monthly crafting club! has a great office space with it's own entrance, for Jim's paralegal business! We are so excited!! It has a great yard for summer entertaining and is on a popular road so we will have good exposure. It's just outside the city limits so we are allowed to put up business signage. Keep us in your prayers for a smooth, easy transition! I'll keep ya posted....

Adorable Easter Baskets!!

Aren't these adorable?? My friend, Jackie, from PCcrafter made them using the top note die...and of course the cuttlebug! They would be so cute for a table setting on Easter Day or for special little gifts! I have to get that die now! I love Easter and all the colors and flowers associated with it, don't you?? April 12th will be upon us before ya know it! Leave a note for Jackie on what you think of her sweet little tote/baskets! Thanks for stopping by....
