"Full of Love" Book Launch Party

Monday night one of my best friends and I went to the launch party for Nancy O'Dell's new book "Full of Love" and her new product line with Creative Memories.  We loved seeing the tremendous change for Creative Memories in product design and's a complete 180 degree change from their previous lines and so much more inline with my tastes.  Mingling with everyone was fun too!  There were lots of Nancy's celeb friends in attendance along with a lot of Creative Memories and other crafty business people.

Easter Postcard-Blog1 

Happy Easter!  As a Christian, today is such a special day.  I'm so thankful for all that God has done for me, especially His resurrection.  I hope that you have a wonderful day today...even if you don't celebrate Easter!  

My gift to you is this vintage German Easter postcard that I picked up quite awhile ago at an antique store.  The back side of the postcard is also included in the download.  If you'd like to share this with others please just send them the link to this blog post (  Thanks!



Whirlwind Week

My brother & niece came out for a visit last week.  It was so great to see them both & to hang out together.  We took my niece to Disneyland for the first time...she was in awe!  Meeting the Princesses and Alice totally made her day.  Alice rode the carousel with her...which left her speechless...seriously...a speechless 3 yr old...girl!!  -That NEVER happens!





We also went to the Aquarium of the Pacific where we petted sharks and rays.  My niece also got to feed the lorikeets nectar, which she loved.  -So brave!!

Just a peek

Gee, I've been busy lately...and I totally wish I could show you what I've been working on, but most of it still has to stay under wraps for now.  However, I could show you one little sneak peek I guess.  :)


Ok, you're right, that wasn't much of a peek.  To make it up to you I'll show you who I had lunch with....
