So much to be thankful for lately. But today I am thankful for friends who invite my sister and I over for their birthday lunch. Friends who take their time to make lemonade.
How beautiful are these lemons!!!
Friends who take the time to make us salad and soup.
Thankful for a good lunch that was cooked from scratch but even more thankful for nice conversations, for fun stories and for how appreciative friends are. Thank you Alma for such a fun afternoon.
While most people wish we could skip Monday and go right into Tuesday. I TRY to look at it like a brand new start. Whatever went wrong last week. We can leave that behind. Don’t get me wrong, I too sometimes with Monday’s left as fast as they arrived. But there is nothing wrong with a fresh start.
So please have an awesome week!
All my love <3
Let’s be thankful all year long. Not just on Thanksgiving.
Today I’m thankful for cough drops and warm blankets. Beanies and cowls. Warm socks and jammies.
Most important I am thankful to my spunky niece Dani. Who teaches us daily that we need to sing more and have fun! Thank you Dani girl. Tia loves you.
Here are a few photos of Dani growing up!
She wanted the horse to be fashion lol
Oh you know, just taking a nap.
I don’t remember how old she was here, but I do remember her turning everything into monkey bars.
Have a great Thursday <3
I’ve made a few large paper flowers before, but I eyeballed them and wasn’t sure if I was making them right. When Jamie at 702_ flowers4U offered a paper flower workshop. I decided to make a weekend out of it and travel to Las Vegas to take her workshop. Jamie was so nice and answered all my questions and didn’t hesitate to give us info, that is usually so hard to get answers to.
We made 2 flowers using her templates.
Here is the first one.
Those close up of the center is more true to color of this beautiful salmon colored paper.
My petals are a little wonky but I will keep practicing.
We also made this flower, that I am so in love with.
Love the center with a little “bling”
Thanks for all the goodies Jamie <3
Have a great rest of the weekend.
