How Lucky Can You Get!

Even though I had no idea my life would spin out of control this last month, I signed up for an Easter Swap headed up by Heather Bluhm . She was an excellent hostess, emailing us with all the details for the swap...there were 11 women in the swap, and we were to create an Easter/Spring creation for each person in our group. Heather was the one with the enormous task of sorting and mailing for all the groups.

Well I was one LUCKY GIRL !!!! Just look at the fabulous creation I unwrapped out of the package that Heather sent:

I will do the count down backwards (so appropriate for me!!!) from day 11 to day one!

Day 11 was this Sweet little chick box from Vivian at !!

The little chick is handmade and is dressed for Easter in a sweet pink ruffled collar and a pastel party hat!! the box sits on a nest of white crepe paper and I must agree with Kecia ( ) it does remind me of a cupcake or sweet confection! I just can't get enough of this one...she is perched on top of one of my mercury glass candlesticks in a layer of aqua paper Easter grass! Thanks Vivian, not sure I can put this one away after Easter, she may just have to sit with me in the Studio!!! Love it!!!

I'm still here...I think

Just a quick hello to let you know I have not fallen off the face of the earth....just taken an overwhelming dive into a new season of life. My mom is home from the hospital and almost moved into my house...we are bringing things over daily as we find a need or a place for them. I am sitting here sipping coffee almost comotose though, as it seems there is so much more for us to do....not to mention going back to work and making some money to pay the bills....yes, darn it, they still come even when you don't have time to think about them! I really do hope that by the weekend, I will be back to the world of blog and having pictures to post....look forward to catching up on all your latest post and creativity. Say a prayer for peace and calm as we all adjust to the changes that are taking place in this season of life...and that we will continue to see the beauty in it all! -Sandra
