It almost seems surreal that a tranquil view like this coexists with the devastation in the aftermath of the disaster in Japan. My prayers are going up for everyone affected by this terrible tragedy. I hope everyone here is having a blessed day and enjoying the beauty that is so abundant around us! I took the photo above while enjoying a quiet moment at a Charleston plantation. I'm crafting like crazy this afternoon because I have Etsy and Ebay orders to finish this weekend. I did have a chance to upload my very first video on Youtube today featuring the mini album I'm crafting for my grandaughter. Doing my first paper crafting video was a goal I set for myself for this year and I put it off because I was intimidated by the whole process, but I finally did it!! It wasn't easy though. I had technical difficulties (lots and lots of them) so the video quality isn't good, but at least now there's no place to go but up:-) Take a look at it if you'd like to, but go easy on me--it's my very first try:-) I added the link to my Youtube channel on the right column of my blog if you want to view it. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're having a beautiful and relaxing weekend!!

It's another new day! I love the morning because everything starts over and it's filled with anticipation and potential. That probably sounds cliche (okay, it totally sounds cliche) but it's so true!! I never end up finishing everything I put on my daily 'list' because I tend to plan as though there were about 100 hours in every day, so I just cross my fingers, hope for the best, and hit the ground running:-)) I like to assess and revise my plan as I go through the day by crossing things off and adding them to tomorrow. That's my technique for sustaining the illusion that I'm actually accomplishing my goals-- and you can borrow that from me if you want to--it really works! I'm celebrating today by sharing a vintage image of this sweet little girl. I thought her pretty bouquet of white flowers was the perfect way to welcome spring. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed and wonderful day.

Hi to Everyone! Well, prom was a complete success! All the kids had a great (and safe) evening. It was a super late night and we're all still recovering here at our house:-) My husband was pulled over by the police on the way to the midnight breakfast. He didn't use a turn signal when he switched lanes and they thought he was a drunk driver. He ended up just receiving a warning once it was realized he hadn't been drinking so thankfully no expensive ticket or points on his license (big sigh of relief!!) I'll post a couple of photos from prom soon, but for now I have another vintage image to share. This charming old ad is from 1890. How fun is this! I'm off to Mass but I wanted to check in to say hello and wish everyone a wonderful day!

Hi! Today I'm sharing a photo of the 'Once Upon a Time' album I made for my grandaughter. It's not actually finished yet. I got it to this point so we could take it to Disney World and get character signatures in it, and now that the trips over I'll add the photos and finish the embellishment of the inside pages. I am having so much fun making this and I can't wait to take it to her when we go to see them over Easter! My plan is to do a youtube video of this album when it's complete. I've never done one before but it's a goal I've set for myself this year:-) Well, I'm off to charge my camera and video camera. My son is going to prom tonight--I'm so excited about it!! He's going with his date and 3 other couples. We rented them a limo for dinner and prom, then afterward all the parents will meet them for a midnight breakfast for all. I know they'll have the best evening ever! I hope anyone who stops by my blog is having a beautiful day!
