Rambling Thoughts

Hope you're having a swell week. I was in Southern California last week traveling on business for a golf company. I was right on the coast. Boy,was it beautiful (and warm). I really enjoyed it. I have to admit, however, that I was happy to come back home to my husband and my kitties. Now,today, it's my husband's turn to travel. He'll be gone until Halloween.

Anyway, it makes me think about how much I appreciate being close to someone - well, okay, in particular (at this moment), my husband. You know? He's really my closest friend, the person I spend the most time with. Spending a lot of time with strangers and being in a new place has its excitement, but it pales in comparison to the content I experience when I am with my husband. It's contentment in knowing how much I'm loved - and the comfort I have in being able to be myself.

I guess spending all that time alone and with a few strangers made me think a little too. I had more time to think and talk to myself than usual.

AnyWHO...take care and .....oh....Love Much

Baker John

Totally scrumptious, this bread. John is home from college right now and in-between hours of aimless gaming, he must be thinking of good food. He trolled my cookbook case and pulled a very old Italian bread cookbook out and VOILA....filled our house with the wonderful aroma of rosemary. His first loaf.

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year) Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday. If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise.... Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released  Red,White,Blue Bundle.   It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (l

Stylish Gift Bag

Today I have the above project featured over on the Pinque Peacock blog.   (go visit!) I love how it turned out.  It is a relatively simple design, but is sturdy and large enough to hold a nice size gift.  I put handmade soaps in it and I don't think it will have any trouble holding up under the weight! Anyway, hope you like it!  Let me know if you'd like a tutorial and I'll get my busy little hands to work! In the meantime, enjoy your holiday.  We are supposed to have some pretty heavy storms, but today, so far, it is nice enough (SUPER hot and humid, but very few clouds).
