26 Weeks Letter Challenge – I

Letter I has me a bit intrigued. Let’s see what I can find in the files…

An all-time favorite of mine…Invisible man in Barcelona. No, I did not edit this image!

Toronto

Toronto map

We are in the planning stages of a trip to Toronto. We will be taking the Canadian Railway from Vancouver. We have done a similar trip across the US to NYC from Portland, OR, but excited about this one, as we hear the Canadian Railway is much nicer than Amtrak and we have never been to Toronto.

This is a call for ideas…what to see, what to do, what not to see/do, etc. Open to any ideas you might want to share.

Thanks, in advance!

February Happy Thoughts

Here’s lookin’ at ya! Smile!

I can’t credit the owner, but doesn’t this just look like a happy place? Remembering the old days, back in the 50s; thinking of the car shows that will be coming up; drive-in movies? Lots of things come to mind.

What does this image make you think of?

A New Look

A friend once told me, “When things seem out of control, change your hair. It is the one thing you can control!”

Well, I don’t plan on changing my hair soon. I did decide to change my site up a bit though. It looks more streamlined to me. Now, if I can just get to posting regularly. No pressure!

More what I believe more is…

So many things to do! I continue to be a work in progress and I am happy about that… as long as I am continuing to see some progress!

Thursday Doors – March 28, 2015

IMG_4174 This is my entry for Norm’s Thursday Doors Challenge.

I am drawing from my recent trip to Savannah, GA for these images. Really liked the blowing curtain, the classic door with the light shining through and the gate…slightly open and inviting…like a door.

Then, from the oldest community established by freed slaves, these doors:

Finally today, do doorbells count?

IMG_4176 I liked these!

It’s All About the Family

KC trip Puzzle

I have been absent from Blogs, Internet and most everything that does not have to do with family until this week! I don’t get to see the family back in the mid-west that often, so I take advantage of all I can get when I am there!

Family is all about the love and the sharing, the fun and the support. I was blessed with all of that last week. Sure, I could always take more time, but I will be thankful for what I get.

Above is a little puzzle I put together about family. Some of the clues fit my family, but I think they fit lots of families really. If you like to play word games, give it a try. The note says it is an excel file and you can check your answers by changing the font color. I don’t think that will happen here, but maybe it will be fun anyway! (The letters are there, just very faint!)

For some hints, the things that family means to me – next to the things noted above – lots of kidding around and laughing, sharing what is going on in everyone’s life, singing, playing, sports, so much food…what does family mean to you?

Now I must get back to my routines. Had a sale on Etsy while I was gone, so I need to get that packed up and shipped off too! And it feels like spring is coming, especially with DST now…so much to do!

Here’s to happiness!

Quick Follow-Up to Craft Day

IMG_0684-0It was so much fun, as always, spending time with my muse friend and painting fabrics!

Here is just a sneak peek at phase one of some of the items. Next step will be lettering…or not…and then sewing up some cute market bags! More to come, in case you are watching.
