Hello

Hi Everyone!

I thought I'd log on and post an update.  Things are going pretty good here, lots of improvement in our family life!!  Positive things are happening but I still need to prioritize and keep off the computer as much as possible.  I appreciate all the cards and encouraging thoughts all of you have sent my way, they've really brightened my days.  The past couple weeks have been a rollercoaster of emotions and the kind thoughts were very helpful on those low days and kept the positive momentum on the up days!!  You're all so sweet and generous!  I'm gonna try to be on line a little more here and there, but not as much as I had been before.

Since I haven't posted in so long, I thought, I'd share a little project I did for a friend of mine for her birthday.  It's a tea tin that I got from Hope Stamps Eternal with a little pocket for a gift card along with some little flowers I made from various punches to go inside it.  It's a fun project!  I wish I could afford to send her real flowers, but since I can't, these were the next choice!  Could be a great little Spring gift, Mother's Day or May Day gift too.  I made an extra one for another friend too, once I started going on one I just needed to make some more.


Supplies used:  Tea Tin, Bamboo skewers, SU Spring Fling DS papers, Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, Regal Rose CS, Dotted BG stamp, Simple Type Numbers, Amazing to Zany, Regal Rose and Celery Grosgrain ribbon, Pewter BAB, Silver brads,  EK Success and SU flower punches, Marvy Mega Circle punch, SU 1/2" circle punch, Sticky Strip, Glue Dots, Pretties Kit pearls, DD glitter, 2 way glue pen, Paper Crimper for grass.

I hope you're all doing well!!  I miss you guys!!
Hugs!
Rhonda
