Retirement Gifts and Gardening

It's Another Beautiful Saturday!  Hope you are enjoying your weekend. 



A colleague of mine that I've worked with for the last 10 years decided to retire.   He's going to enjoy this next chapter of his life in his garden.  I thought that it would be appropriate to create a little basket.

What fun it was creating so many little gifts.

Here's the table where everything was setup:

Enjoy the rest of your wonderful day!

What a sweet, thoughtful way to say so long to your coworker! I'm sure he will look on your gifts with great joy and his "seed money" will be put to good use! So very kind of you…

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
