It's Spring Around Here!

I can't believe this weather around here!  Everything is starting to bloom and the grass is nice and green.  I was just telling my husband that we might have to mow the lawn already.  I noticed these pretty little flowers on this ground cover I planted two years ago.  I just love spring time!

I also decided to make a spring-like collage with some of the stuff that was laying around on my craft table.  It kind of got my juices flowing.

I'm a Bad Blogger!

It's been so long since I've blogged, again....................  I haven't been creating much lately, there is just not enough hours in the day!  Walking afterwork and getting myself in shape has kind of been my top priority lately.  Ever since my mom's sudden death in November 2010 from congestive heart failure, I have been telling myself I have to get into shape, because I don't want to die at 62 like my mom did. Wellllllllll I haven't been doing much about it.  I don't know if it was talking a walk along the I & M Canal, enjoying the birds sing or seeing a pretty sunset one evening, but I know now I have to care more about myself.  Life is not about fitting into a bikini, it's about feeling better!

I did manage to participate in a atc swap at Tee's Blog.  The swap was to incorporate lace onto the atc.  I love lace, so this was loads of fun!

This is what I made for Donna

This is What Donna made for me.  The lovely photo is her Great Great Aunt.

I also participated in a Marie Antoinette bottle swap over at the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group.  I also love altering bottles, so of course, this was also a blast!

This is what I made for Marti.
