Hello all!

It was awesome to hear that the amazing light show, in the northern sky, was so close to me yesterday but darn it all I missed it.    I sat out this evening, after dark, in hopes I might catch a glimpse, but alas, I’m too far south this evening.   On the other hand, the stars were beautiful and the crickets and frogs sang a beautiful melody!  🙂

So, I came in, dipped myself a bowl of sweetened strawberries and sat down to type.   

Don’t my strawberries look yummy? 

They are!

Earlier this evening I began to fold many pages, creating a tree from a softback, actually a huge catalog from work that was going into the recycle bin.   I’ve never made a paperback tree before, so this was something new for me.   Here is my first attempt.

The catalog I’m using was over 2000 pages and I have another, just like it, to use.  So now, I’m folding pages to create an angel.   I’ll post a pic when I get it done.   As to the tree, I’m thinking of painting and decorating it like a Christmas tree, to use as a centerpiece for a table setting.


What’s a goal you have for this year?
This morning I realized it was time to renew my make up.   You know how it is, you use your makeup for a while, and I make mine last as long as possible, then one day it just doesn’t cover as well or isn’t applying as smoothly as it should.  Is anyone with me this?  
Anyway, later in the day I read a quote from Lady Blessington… “There is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness.”… and that quote got the wheels, in my head, turning… remembering the smiles of friends, loved ones and strangers, and how those smiles just lit up the world.

Have you ever noticed how a smile is contagious?   Now that is one contagion I’m willing to catch every day!  🙂
Smiling is infectious,
You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today,
And I started smiling too.
I guess that’s all I have for this evening.   I trust all is going well with you.   If not, please let me know and I will pray for you.  
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
God bless and keep you,
My answer to the last question:  Nada!

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
