...m. i. a.
(missing in action)
that's about the sum of it!
without all the blah, blah, blah
cause i don't even want to hear it!
we are in a flux in our transition back to Ohio
i'm not sure how, when or where.
everything is up in the air ~
hence my lack of posting.
can we say
so what's a girl to do
when her snow globe is all in a flurry???
she must step into the light or course!!
i will walk into the light...
upon entering ~
a most graceful hand of friendship has been extended
life's load is always easier to carry with even one more pair of hands...
and i am grateful...
and because of that grateful heart ~
it is easier to seek the joys in every day
as i use my gifts to make pretties to share with all of you...
while i wait for the flurries to clear
for everyone knows that
it is only with a quiet soul
that you can hear the the direction
in which you need to go...
jeanne d'arc style wrapping paper i've been working on while pondering...
(don't look mom!!)
won't packages with this
be lovely with a luscious silk ribbon tied around them?!
and as i step into the light ~
you may remember seeing these fairy lights in the past
i adore using them all around my home all year long.
but most especially for the holidays!
as who doesn't love some delicate twinkle??
(i do! i do!)
this is a 100 count light set
to which i have added flowers to
in an every other one pattern
using this tutorial found
as a guide line
i then used tiny paper nut liners for the every other "buds"
2 paper cups, per light
just using hot glue around the stem of the each light
twisting the paper liners on
are they not lovely??
they give off such a delightful ethereal glow...
in the coming weeks,
i will be sharing with you
the little touches i am using to decorate my home
for the holidays.
some of you may not want to think about this yet,
but some of the pretties i will be showing you need a little creative time
need to be ordered ahead of time.
so by sharing these things with you now,
you will have plenty of time to decorate when you are ready!
let's say this
"silent night ~ holy night" mirror cling
which just so happens to be my holiday decorating "theme" this year
i LOVE how it turned out!
you can find them
very affordable and
they are very easy to apply!
just look at how much whimsy it added!!
love, Love, LOVE it!!
i will be revealing my giveaway
i will give you a hint
can you say "dreamy"??
see you then!
