Pink Checkbook Cover

This is the new checkbook cover I bought for my granddaughters checkbook. Isn't it cute? Chrissie of "In His Grace" made it especially for me. I told her I wanted pink and purple. I think she did a gret job. Now there is no doubt when I reach into my purse which one is my granddaughters. Do visit Chrissie's blog and her etsy shop when you have a chance. On etsy she is known as mixedmediamama. She is a sweet soul and her etsy service is fast. She stayed in touch with me during the process and I was so pleased with her workmanship and service.

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe,

Hello All,

Look what we found on our porch recently? Aren't they pretty! Momma bird was out to lunch and we were able to go right up to the nest. We had some nice weather and it really felt like Spring was finally here.

And look down at this little guy/gal.

I caught this bunny in my lense after hubby pointed out into the side yard. We were on the porh for a while and I was just snapping away with my camera.
A good scratch behind the ear always feels good!

It's been cold and raining today with high winds. We had some rain mixed with pea sized hail yesterday and today I am told it is snowing just an hour from here. I hopet hese little critters will be ok tonight. It is suppose to get down to freezing overnight and then sunshine and temps in the 60's tomorrow. I sure will be glad when Spring is finally here to stay.

Wishing you all love and happiness,

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe,

A Carnival Themed Birthday

Greetings All, Sorry about the sideways pic above but I wanted to try to get the whole tray/cake into the picture. We spent mopst of yesterday with our youngest daughter and a group of her frineds celebrating three little peoples birthdays. Three families came together to put on a carnival themed birthday complete with a giant bouncy house (truck) and clowns. It was so much fun.
This busy little man is now 3 years old. I have lots of pictures of his back. He was constantly on the move and had so much fun.
This is Donald with his youngest princess who is now a 1 year old.

This little princess is now a 1 year old also. My daughter, Billie, made the tutus for the girls. They were soo cute.

All it took were some family and friends, hot dogs, popcorn, fruit & veggies, a couple bouncy games, face painting, plenty of bubbles, a couple clowns with balloons and
a few other odd games to create a busy and fun day.

Have a great Sunday,

Wild Tiles by Chrissie Grace

Greetings friends,

It's a beautiful day and the sun is shining. There's even a warm breeze out to caress the skin. I can almost believe Spring has finally set in.

I spent a couple hours at Hasting's yesterday. I love book stores. This one has an attached coffee shop that serves up the best lemon poppy seed muffins. Mmmm, yummy! I love looking for bargains and of course my favorite magazines too. Yesterday I found a real bargain indeed. I spotted the book "Wild Tiles" by Chrissie Grace. The suggested retail price on the back cover is $22.99 and I got the book for $5.99. Now that was a bargain. I've covered vases with glass beads before and enjoyed the process. Just flipping through the book I am thinking many of the projects could be done with paper, glue and paint. I plan to try this first. I love Chrissie's creations and am a follower of her blog. Go check it out here. She is also on etsy and has a wonderful collection of items available in her mixedmediamama shop.

I hope you all enjoy this blessed Sunday and have a beautiful week ahead.

Be Happy, Be Healthy, Be Safe,
