Taking a Break

Well, that time of year is here again......when I will be venturing away
from my cozy home and spending time at my cabin in the hills.

Hubby and I have lots of days planned to spend there,
and my sisters and I have days planned, too.

And honestly, I really need a blogging break.

I have become very bored with my blog. I'm not really sure what
I thought it would be when I first started blogging, but
I know that it's not what I would like it to be now.

While I'm away, I want to spend some time trying to figure that out,
and work on making it more interesting for me, and you.

I hope your summer is full of fun-filled days doing what you love.

See you soon!

hugs, debi


Beautiful Treasures

I love swapping with the ladies of MAMA.

What a sweet, and talented group of artists this is.....
and it is such an honor to be a member.

I received this exquisite altered vintage glove from Jody.

It came beautifully packaged in the most fabulous box,
and was accompanied by lots of sweet little treasures.

Thespa sent me this gorgeous necklace with a beautifully altered key.

I'm swooning over all the beautiful beads and bling!

Thank you ladies!

Well, so far, everything is going good in my little garden,
I haven't killed anything yet, and the flowers are blooming.

Of course, the real test will come when it gets hot. That's
when I hide in the house and everything gets neglected.

Hope you're all having a beautiful week!


Playing and Swapping

I've been playing with PicMonkey, and I really like it.
They have a fun overlay feature, so I decided
to create a new banner for summer.

I picked a sweet retro pin-up girl that I found here, because she looks
a lot like me in the summer........except she's thinner, younger, blonder, prettier,
and isn't sweating like a pig!

I haven't been doing a whole lot lately, but, here are some
of my recent creations for swaps I'm in.

Tea with Marie ATC swap

Key to Petit Trianon swap

Altered Vintage Glove swap

Marie's Garden Tea Party swap

Altered Vintage Trésor Box swap

I hope you're all enjoying beautiful spring weather where you live.

I'll be back soon to show you the beautiful swap gifts I've received.
