New Kit

Here AT LAST is my newest kit 'Summer Camp-Part 1'. And yes, it's a FREEBIE....It reminds me of 4-H camp when I was a kid and all the camping trips since then. I hope you will have lots of fun with it. I have made the downloads a bit smaller so it won't take you forever to grab it all. And did you notice that it says 'Part 1'???? Yup - more to come. Stay tuned for the 'S'more Kids' kit coming on May 15th. Thanks for stopping by! (Graphics ©Scrappin Doodles)

I Looked Back

I used Karla Kellum's 'Joyful Thanks' (available HERE) to create a heritage page with just a few of the old family photos I've inherited. The passage I used is my all-time favorite:
'I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come. I looked back and saw my father and his father and all our fathers, and in front to see my son and his son, and the sons upon sons beyond. And their eyes were my eyes. As I felt, so they had felt, and were to feel, as then, so now, as tomorrow and forever. Then I was not afraid, for I was in a long line that had no beginning and no end. And the hand of his father grasped my father's hand and his hand was in mine, and my unborn son took my right hand and all, up and down the line that stretched from Time That Was to Time That Is and Is Not Yet, raised their hands to show the link. And we found that we were one, born of Woman, son of Man, made in the image, fashioned in the womb by the Will of God, the Eternal Father.' ~Richard Llewellyn, from 'How Green Was My Valley'

OK, it's another couple of weeks until Valentine's Day and I'm already sick, sick, sick of hearts, flowers, pink and candy !! LOL. SO, starting on Friday, 2/6/09, I will be offering a new kit in pieces that you can pick up every Friday. The kit is 'Where In The World' and will probably hit many of the places folks will travel to on vacation. Be sure to drop back on each Friday to gather all your parts and pieces. And they are all, of course, FREE. Please feel free to leave a comment if you would like to special request a certain part of the world to be highlighted and I'll make an attempt at it.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see you here on Friday the 6th.

Making the OLD look NEW... I am convinced that my husband Ted can fix or build ANYTHING!
Here he has begun to make our five year old tract home fireplace look like a hundred year old hearth! To be continued....

Today Governor Schwarzenegger gave his 'State of the State' address and the press crews and crowds of budget cut protesters made it difficult to get to work. Gotta love 'Freedom of Speech'! Nowhere but the USA!

Once again, I used Dea Spina's 'La Maison'. Grab it HERE.

Another page for the Zoo Book. Please check out all of Dea Spina's kits at DIGITALS !!

I have started a book for one of my grandsons next Christmas present. This will be the cover. We have a LOT of zoo pictures, so Merrick will have a really wonderful book. I will upload them as I get them completed.

Thanks again to Dea Spina for her amazing kits! You can find this kit 'An Answer From A Flower' HERE.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to use one of
BANNERWOMAN's awesome kits ('My Little Ladybug') to make

that you see and I greatly appreciate that! Please be sure to

While my daughter was sewing, my grandson Miles found a new can of Nestle's Quick chocolate mix and managed to pry the lid off. By the time Mom realized it was 'too quiet', the damage was done. He looks like an alien from Planet Chocolate!

I used Dea Spina's kits 'An Answer From A Flower' and 'La Maison'. Both are available at her Digitals Store HERE.

I am starting an album about me and thought that I need to journal more, so this is the beginning page. It reads:

'I am not a good sleeper. Many nights that is a problem. Usually I give up and get up.
In the SPRING, I love to sit on the patio and wait for the red shouldered blackbirds to arrive at the feeders. Theirs is my favorite birdsong. In the SUMMER, I head for the garden as the sun comes up. It is the best time to work, when the soil smells fresh and the air is still cool. In the FALL, I walk in the cool morning air. All the neighborhood trees are beginning to change color and the season invigorates me. But when the CHRISTMAS SEASON comes around, the wee hours of the mornings find me in front of the Christmas tree, before anyone is up. It is one of my great pleasures. It is still cold and dark outside, but so warm and cozy inside. I turn the tree lights on and I light up my little winter village, grab a cup of fresh coffee and sit on the couch. This is my very favorite time of year. I think of all that I have and how grateful I am for my life, my faith and my extraordinary family. And I think about my mom who died at Christmastime. She was such a blessing to so many and I sorely miss her. My family has started telling me how I am so much like my mom. I certainly hope so. Most of all, I think about the season and how it seems to make everyone softer, kinder, more compassionate. And after all, I believe that really is what happened to people on that First Christmas so long ago.'

Thanks to Dea Spina for her kit 'A Fantasy Tale', available here:
