Have a great week.
Have a great week.
Huge thank you to my coworkers that have reached out to me this past week and a half. I still consider them my coworkers even if I don’t work with them anymore. I was laid off from my job of 22 years and I miss them so much. I think of you daily ladies and I hope you think of me too.
Chia: my days are not complete without you. Thank you for staying with me while I packed everything up. It means so much to me to know that I can always count on you. Our friendship is everything to me.
Mrs. Glorie: I can’t even type without crying. Thank you for always believing in me, for always appreciating me and for always being the friend that we all need in our lives. Don’t let me hear that your giving anybody else a bowl of potato salad or your going to hurt my feelings.
Mrs. Ima: my morning coffee is so boring without you, and who am I supposed to get my news from now? The weather report and the entertainment news from. Thanks for always being the light of my day. Thank you for always loving all my crafts and for always telling me no to give my talent away. I miss you.
Arlene: i had to start making my own pancakes since I don’t have you around to make them for me. Stay positive and stay eating all the yummy tofu. Thanks for always being a good sport and for always being so nice to me even when I was mean to you lol. I hope that you finally learned how to pronounce pescatarian lol.
Maricela: I wish I could have been there your last few days with the company. Best of luck with your new job. I know you will be amazing. Thank you for your support and for always appreciating all my crafts!. I hope I still see you every Christmas for your family photos!
Thank you ladies!
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.
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 haven’t done a thank you Thursday in so long. But it was a must today.
In a time when the world is all sorts of messed up. I’m not talking about the natural disasters that have been happening lately. I’m talking about the way we are treating one another. I’m talking about people not even saying the simplest things as please, thank you, you’re welcome, excuse me and especially I’m sorry. Why did we forget to just be nice. Why did we forget that a random act of kindness from a stranger is okay. That there doesn’t have to be an ulterior motive when people are nice.
I was at the laundromat on Monday. My towels weren’t dry yet. I went to the change machine. For some reason it wouldn’t take my dollar. After putting it in 3 times. Somebody taps me on the shoulder and says here. A complete stranger handed me a dollar in quarters. I must have looked completely shocked that a stranger was giving me a dollar. He said here keep it. I was like are you sure? He said, yes keep it. I was so taken aback, that I didn’t even realize that I should of handed him the dollar that wasn’t working in the change machine. I said thank you over and over. It was so nice of him. I finished my laundry and when I turned back to thank him again. He was gone. It was so weird to me because I instantly felt like he had never been there.
Let’s not forget that it’s okay to be nice to one another. Including complete strangers.
LIFE IS GOOD!!!
I love folding paper. It’s one of those things that relaxes me. When I travel I like to take origami paper with me and always make something to leave with the housekeepers tip. Years ago when I went to Aruba for my friends wedding. The housekeeper at the hotel I was staying at, asked if i could teach her how to make a swan and heart. She said she wanted to teach her granddaughter. She was so cute. I left her a pack of paper. She was so excited. It warms my heart to imagine her folding paper with her granddaughter.
I miss Aruba.
Okay back to folding paper.
I used to leave hearts behind that said. “All you need is love. Love is all you need”. I love making them for Valentine’s Day too.
The shirt is perfect for Father’s Day. Add a bow tie, tie, pocket and buttons and it would make a cute card.
How perfect are those swans for weddings. Years ago I made them in gold and white for a bridal shower and wedding.
Those flowers are super easy to make and the possibilities are endless. You can add bling, buttons, small flowers to the center. Or so many other things.
