Bragging Rights....

I couldn't stand it, I had to show you my second rose. Unfortunately for you and me, I was way too busy to go out and take a picture of the first yellow one. Enjoy everyone.

Happy Monday Carol

I traveled to the dark side.

When I got up yesterday morning, I felt a shift in the world. As usual, I don't believe in it, but yesterday seemed different. I think if I had left it alone, maybe it would straighten back out. But not me. I fear that putting black coffee in my favorite green tea cup might have changed the karma of the day. As the day went on, things seemed to go wrong. Didn't feel well, felt a little light headed and way too tired.

That evening was our Home Owners Meeting, in which I am the secretary. I have to say that the volunteer position was very painful. There are a group that had it out for everything that happened and told me so through many e-mails. Well, let me tell you, they were in full force last night and I had never seen such cruelty ever. So as we the board was under fire, I found it hard to breath and comprehend what was going on. At the end of the meeting, I decided to resign. That was no way to treat people. There goes southern hospitality.

I knew that I had become weary of the complainers and spent way too much time replying to them. It took away from my sleep and creativity. My designing really is what makes me whole. So maybe it's not the world that was shifting to hurt me but help me. Hummm.

I didn't listen to my heart. So I had to experience it. But God only gives me what I can handle and I can handle this. I have more time for my family, friends, and designing. I feel good. I wanted to tell you this because I became stronger last night and that my friends is wonderful.

God Bless those who travel through my little blog.

When is a pond too blue?

I have to tell you the story to really explain the blue pond. It always happens when John asks my opinion. After talking to a pond company, we decided to put sand on the bottom of the pond. The question he ask is what do you think? I thought about it, not thinking with bad there is good. My only comment was that maybe we didn't need to pay for play box sand.

When John decided to listen, we found out how dirty sand could be. Should have bought play box sand. Oh my.... it turned to mud. So the first thought is to bring in clarifier for the pond. Sure didn't work as fast as we would have liked. Next John decided to put pond coloring in the pond. Now we have blue water and a clear pond.

Moral of the story is... think before you listen to your wife. Giggle.

God Bless those who travel through my little blog world.

Another new card.

I forgot that I didn't show my new puppy boy card. What can I say, see I am working too hard. However it's more love for me than work.

Really I'm working....

Most of you wonder where I have been. Well, I have been working really hard on my new line of cards. The pet line, they include sympathy, new puppy, new kitten. I showed you the new kitten card and now I am unveiling my new puppy girl card. I am proud of the creations and wanted to share them with you.
