New Beginnings in Crafting


Hello my dear sweet friends -

Hope you are having a glorious day!! I am sitting here at the kitchen table with a fantastic refreshing breeze coming through the open windows.  It's like heaven on earth!!

Several months ago a dear friend sent me a gift card for my birthday and I just haven't had the opportunity to use it until now.  Most of my craft supplies are divided between California and Oregon and I don't have a lot here with me yet. Since I am in the creative mode I figured I needed to do a little shopping and see what I could come up with and the photo below shows what I bought with my gift card.  Ironically I am so use to being surrounded by all my craft supplies and at times was a little overwhelmed because there were so many choices.  

And now I am excited because I don't have so many choices and I will be able to really stretch my creative muscle to see what I can come up with.  I do have digi images on my computer (thank goodness) as well as my copic markers.  Ideas are starting to buzz through my brain and hopefully I will be able to make my first new project post by early next week.  I am also going to start making changes to the look of my blog - new beginnings equals a new blog look.  

Thanks for stopping by and its time to do some blog visiting and see what you have been up to.

Hugs always

Laine

Time of Renewal

Hello my sweet dear friends -

I am so incredibly happy and excited to be back in blog land with you and at the same time a little nervous and apprehensive with making my first post in quite some time.  Without going into all the details I can finally say I feel like I am back in the world of the living.  I feel rested, my spirit renewed and I have such a deep joy and peace from within. 


Lots of changes have taken place as well as challenges and the excitement of a whole new life adventure bursting open in front of me. Still lots to do but I am ready, willing and able to jump in feet first.  I am now living back in Washington state and excited beyond measure to be near my daughters and grandsons.  


I am slowly getting back into the creative swing of things and will hopefully be able to start posting my creative endeavors soon. But until then - I am so looking forward to checking out your blogs and see what has been happening in your lives too!!  I sure have missed you!!!


With hugs to all


Laine
