ahh taking today to relax, sleep in a little bit, and eat lemon sorbet on a sugar cone. time to pet my cats and greet the day with peace and silence. taking a moment, this moment to be totally in the now. knowing that right here and now is the best possible place to be.

card & video: so exciting

this card was featured in three of my videos for i featured the crushed velvet flock by doodlebug.  it costs $4.75.  if you go to the site, you can see ME in the video next to the flock colors.  so exciting. you can use the coupon code LCAfreepen to get a free stardust pen if you order anything.  the products i used to make the card are tim holtz grungeboard "hi", stampin up scallop punch, stampin up smaller flower punch, and the friskars squeeze punch (red flower), the doodlebug flock, some ribbon from my stash, and the tape n roller plus to adhere it all together.

card: you i love

this card was created with the color me daisy august kit. the card is made from a heidi swapp overlay, you can see right through it.  i have it pictured on blue paper.

yesterday i went to my neighbor Mary's funeral church service. before i left my house i took out some money put it in an envelope and wrote donated by Mary P... on the outside of the envelope.  at the service the father said that Mary would write notes and donated money to the church even though she didn't go all the time. i didn't know that. after the father spoke, I handed the envelope to him and he looked down at the writing and said thank you.  in a way i felt that maybe Mary was speaking through me yesterday.  she will be missed and it was nice to see at the church service that she was also adored.

layout: color me daisy

this is the second layout i completed with the color me daisy kit and i still have a lot of papers to use for another. the american crafts paper line used to be my favorite and now i think it is becoming my favorite again. I used a pink paislee stamp in black ink on top of blue paper and then layered that under a flower punched with the friskers' squeeze. i totally love the ribbon. this kit will be available for purchase in august at please join us on the message board.

layout: he loves me

this is my first layout for the color me daisy design team. American crafts papers and Heidi Swapp products.

thank you everyone for the kind words concerning my neighbor, Mary is her name. i like to think about life this way.. instead of having lost her from my life... i have gained all those moments in having known her in the first place and now she has gone on vacation, i'll miss her, but i respect and accept that my time in knowing her has passed yet still lives on in my heart. and as she has moved on to a different place; my life still moves on too. and i am thinking that everyone is still happy, because i chose to believe that. thanks again for being so sweet. especially nelle who said she wished she could send me some boston creme pie cupcakes...sounds yummy.. you know nelle, i don't know what boston creme pie taste like. i haven't had it.

vlog: my family

it's quiet. yesterday i found out that one of my neighbors passed on. i was just thinking about her that morning.  so quick things are sometimes if you blink it seem like you miss them.  being quiet and feeling wrapped in it with my family brings me that comfort and warmth i always feel when i am at home and am needing right now. saturday i will be attending the service. all is well in my world. even though it saddens me some..i just have to laugh..i still see her smile and hear her voice calling my name.  my dad (who passed) taught me this by saying to me right before he passed a very strong voice, he said,"When I die you don't cry.  You think of me and you LAUGH."
