A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Kandeeland's Blog

Oh, my gosh! I found this blog in the middle of the night when I was sick and couldn't stop coughing, so I went in the other room and got on the computer to keep my husband from waking up (whew!)

Kandee Johnson is a character. I found her while I was looking up Cinderella's necklace so that I could make one for my little granddaughter for her Halloween costume. Somehow, on one of the sites, I found a video from Kandee on how to apply Cinderella make-up. She seemed a little strange at first, but, then, I got sucked in. She's so much fun that she really makes me laugh!

Here is a link to one of her blogs: kandeeland

Have fun if you decide to go there, and check out her other blogs while you're there. It's so funny that, even though I'm old enough to be her mother or grandmother (?), her blog just cracks me up. She reminds me of my niece. My daughter and my niece are the same age. They're so much fun!

Have a restful sleep, even though I'm not--taking Robitussin with codeine to stop the cough and to cough up at the same time, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but you eventually stop coughing and quiet down, so I guess it works!

Pleasant dreams of candy, cupcakes, travel, looking pretty, pink layer cake, and, oh, that's another blog post--the cupcake charms I've found on Etsy. Good night and good morning...

Halloween is approaching, but not too soon, I hope!

Hi to all! I've been really busy making little creations for my two shops: My Dream Garden (for women, and, some for girls, too) and Three Tiny Tucks (for little girls to teens)--both on Etsy. In each photo you'll see a link to the correct shop. So much fun! 

I have also placed headbands in elevate Salon and Spa in Trenton, MI. Something is a much bigger hit when people can actually, physically, see and touch it. I'm sure all of my fellow Etsy artists can relate to that!

Have a great week! Pleasant dreams of crisp air coming--apples, cider, donuts, Halloween, football games, homecoming...but not too soon, please! I'm still enjoying butterflies, hummingbird moths, hummingbirds, flowers, green grass...
