A Touch of Home.

What a week, we saw our family, laughed way too much, if that is possible, drove through snow, and woke up to this. Ok, it's nothing like Minnesota but it gave me the returning feelings of late October in my home state. It started with heavy rain, moved into sleet and finished with snow.
My husband and I watched Christmas movies through the whole thing and enjoyed not having to be out. John is still not sure if I am happy, so he DVR's all the Christmas movies he can and we watch them with blanket, tea and puppy hood on my lap. I have to say, I love it. It's not my fault he doesn't believe me, so I will let it run it's course. Giggle.

But today the sun is shining and I'm so at peace. I hope you are too.
May God Bless those traveling through my little blogspot in Bloggerville.

And off we went....

Being gone from Minnesota for six weeks, making our new life here in South Carolina; we headed back home for a family Christmas party.

After two days in the car, Timber and her humans arrived. Coming from a huge family, you want to spend quality time with everyone. It doesn't take but an hour to find out the time you plan will never, and I mean never be enough.

I was still determined to do all in my power to visit and take in all that was offered. And I did, with great success. The love we got from our family can never be measured. The meals that were served, the hugs that we received were more than I anticipated. So with a horse voice and the three of us heading home I spent time appreciating the sea of snow, the chill in the air as we headed out of town.

I know that it will take days to filter through all that had happened, putting the memories away for further review and remembering. But this too is truly a blessing. Being able to remember and feel the warmth from loved ones.

God Bless all those who travel through this little blog.

A New Creation.

Hi you, fan club. Giggle. I am in a great mood today. I found something new and am loving it. I found a scrapbook store called Funkie Monkie, here in Greer. I plan to do a blog about her. But today is about a get together called "Card Salad". It is held on the first and third Thursday of every month. When you go, Kim the get together brains behind the activity. Has baskets of designs and equipment. You can choose as many as you want. With a five dollar charge and the products you us from the store, you can have a world of fun.
The first time I though it silly, because I do my own designing. About a week later, while eating my fill of turkey, Thanksgiving dinner, I realized how many products, ink, pens, techniques I never could just try. So, I attended the next gathering and picked cards that had different techniques. Than proceeded to play. This is a card I loved. So I found different papers and added my own touch. Added my own words and learned a lot. What do you think?

God Bless those traveling through my little world.
