Dare To Dream...

Hello My Friends!
I'm so happy to finally have a little chunk of time to do some crafting and blogging!!!  It really is medicinal for me... it keeps me calm, relieves my stress, and simply makes me happy.  What can I say, that's just how it is! Is it that way for you too??? Getting ready to go back to work is extremely time consuming and sometimes back-breaking work... I know "boo-hoo" right? I think the general public would be quick to remind me that I have the one thing that makes all the work worth the while... and it's called... "Summer Break!" Hahahaha, so yes, I am grateful for my schedule and I will pipe down and quit whining! LOL! And please don't get me wrong, I LOVE my job, I love working with little people... teaching them new things and watching them grow! I can't imagine that there are too many more other jobs that fill you with the kind of fulfillment you get from caring & educating our children.  I just could do without packing up and unpacking my classroom every year. But anywho, here we go... back to crafty happiness!!!

I drove my daughter back to college at the end of August. It was FIFTEEN hours of driving, yuck! We spent a few days together shopping for supplies, setting up her new room, and spending a whole lot of one-on-one mommy/daughter time. So when she dropped me off at the airport and we said our good-bye, the only thing that kept me from the usual uncontrolable sobbing that customarily ensues at that point was the knowledge that the Prima paper I had ordered had arrived and was waiting for me back home!!! LOL!

Romance Novel & Tea Thyme are gorgeous paper collections and I had seen so many lovely projects on youtube already... I was just itching to get my grubby little hands on them!  And here it is my first attempt at doing the first collection justice and of course no project is complete without...

R77-15 - White Roses
R21 - Pink & White 

Here's the VIDEO if you'd like to take a peek...

As always my friends, I'm so glad you've dropped by! I hope you enjoyed this
project as much as I enjoyed making it! Have a great week!

  4. It's beautiful. And I agree with everyone else. Every thing you so do is amazing!!

  5. Can you believe...?! I was looking for a wooden knob last nite in the drawers for my doll house supplies and there was that same package of windows! I didn't have a particular use for them; just knew they would come in handy someday and they were 50% that day so many months ago when I bought them. Your project has inspired me!! It is lovely!! Seems like serendipity... I had viewed your creation when it first went up but didn't have a chance to comment 'til today... AFTER that viewing was when I found the window frames!! I can't wait to see what I come up with using some of your creativity and a little of my own. TFS!!!

    1. Wow Charlotte!! That's awesome!! Please let me know when you post, I'd love to see what you come up with!!! Hugs!!
