~ What's been happening around here ~

I just can't decide if I deserve to have a blog or not. Why do I keep one when I never post?

I make cards sometimes.. (sometime being in the past).


I leave cute things on my desk so they can get all dusty and make me sneeze..
(thank you Melissa for this pretty little gift. It's been sitting on my workspace since the day it came in the mail!) :)


I make more cards, and when someone wants to take one, they are supposed to put a cookie in it's place as payment (but they never do).


I never pack my stamps away. When I need one in particular, I rumble through the entire pile 'til I find what I need...


I have so many random, odd bits of funny things on the shelf above my desk. What is a pot doing in a basket, and that scrap piece of lace tied around the middle?! (my brain needs re-wiring).


On a more jolly note, I am busy with working life, continued music lessons and practice, and designing projects.

I am feeling especially happy with how Karen's blog banner turned out, so let me share it with you.


Thanks so much for letting me work with you on your blog, Karen.

Hugs to you, my friends.
May your weekend be filled with good things like pizza and ice cream.

And no prizes for guessing when I will be back to regular posting... :)

  10. Hi there, Miss Vio! Don't ever go away completely--you would be so missed! If I were near you, I would leave you many cookies for those beautiful cards! Doesn't Melissa also create such beautiful things? I have some of those treasured pin cushions, too. I think you will find creative ways to use those beautiful items on your desk one day. Sending you hugs!
