I hope all of you are having a wonderful week & are looking forward to a fabulous Easter. I haven't posted much this week because I have been busy trying to complete my 26 swap gifts for Petticoats & Parasols Art Event. They have to be shipped by April 7th & I will tell you I am in a complete PANIC over them. I had a hard time choosing what to do. And then I decided I would do candles with the image from Petticoats & Parasols. I bought the candles & brought them home so happy to have DECIDED! And then I realized the weight & thought of the cost of mailing them. AND WHAT IF THEY BROKE!!!!!!!!!!!! OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You're seeing the whole delima right? So then I returned all the candles & came up with another idea. And it is MUCH MORE LABOR INTENSIVE & I am under the gun. As always, they aren't coming out the way I wanted.... Dither Dither Dither. But, I so wanted to share the adorable image above. It is from a card I bought. I LOVE THIS IMAGE! Enjoy it & I hope you have a glorious Easter. You my friends are indeed a blessing I am thankful for EVERY DAY! I'll see you next week when the project is DONE! HUGS & HAPPY EASTER!

Dearest Charlene you and your sweet hubby have a very Happy Easter.
This is why I haven't entered the swaps, reason one I don't have access to stores here and second I stress out very easily and who needs that at my age really!! I love seeing all the wonderful items in swaps thinking I could never get those things around where I live. I admire you girls so much with what all you create.

Hi Charlene,

It is sure nice to meet you! Thanks so much for the really nice comment and for including me on your sidebar. I will do the same so I can keep up with you. That is how I do it too otherwise I will forget. Karen V. redid my blog I don't know if you have been there since but in reading your blog I see you are friends! What a small blog world. Stop on over and take a look she did a fantastic job and I really love how easy it was and how great she is to work with.

You seem to be a busy bee. If you could come to Glitterfest we would love to have you. Bring your friends Pat and Lisa. I would show you a great time. Which Christine do you know? I want to come to round top, it is my dream!

Have a wonderful Easter day,

Kim
