Coming Soon! It's Almost Time for Crafty Stuff! :)

Coffee of the Day - Salted Caramel

Hello to all of you! Thank you so much for your patience and friendship. :)

It's almost time for some crafty stuff to finally appear here on my blog. The goodies are arriving in the mail and the ideas are flowing like a river. We have been busy working on wedding things, which has caused me to want to get into my craft room and play play play! :) Hoping to get started here in the next few days as the last few items come in the mail. I have big plans and high hopes for projects, so stay tuned! so many pretty toys to use, so I know it will be great fun to see what the end results turn out to be. :)

while we wait, I am listening to one of my all time favorite guitar players today, Stevie Ray Vaughan. here's one of his tunes, "Tick Tock" that he recorded with his brother. enjoy!

What's Been Going On....

Coffee of the Day - is tea! :) Lemongrass Ginger Basil green blend

Hello! We are busy busy busy over here with the big autumn wedding that seems to be quickly approaching! So much crafting to do to get ready!

Tyler and Danielle are having all aspects of the wedding out at Camp, from the rehearsal dinner all the way through to the brunch the day after, so we are making all kinds of shabby, vintage pretties to decorate and beautify! :)

The house is over-run with vintage treasures we have been picking up at antique stores all across Ohio and Pennsylvania, as well as ribbons & fabrics, mason jars, grapevine wreaths, and more kinds of moss than you knew grew in the forest! tee hee!

of course the bride will be the star of the show, as she should be!!! everything else is just setting the stage until she makes her appearance when she comes down the aisle.....

Much love to all of you!

Happy Anniversary, Women's March!

Coffee of the Day - Maple Nut

This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the single largest protest in world history, with over 5 million people participating worldwide. The Women's March brought together people of all races, all socio-economic levels, for so many crucial causes, to let their voices be heard.

I am honored to have been at the march in Washington DC. This weekend marches will once again take place all around our globe, focusing on important issues such as #metoo, #NoBanNoWall, DACA and the clean Dream act, ever important racial equality, gender pay disparity, and LGBT rights, just to name a few.

Sadly I have to work this weekend, so I am unable to march. But I will be wearing my t-shirt from the march last year to show my solidarity with all of my sisters and brothers who are taking to the streets.

I think of all that has happened in this past year, the changes our country has been through. It's been difficult, but we have seen a beautiful voice emerge of courageous souls speaking out and stepping out for the first time. I truly believe that we will collectively come to find that peace and love will prevail. Respect for others and compassion for our fellow neighbors, ALL neighbors, will win out over hate and fear. We will join together hand in hand. One day... Oh yes, one day... :)
