I hope you are all having a good weekend! It has been an extremely intense one for me, meeting a deadline, but its all coming together nicely. I'm helping someone put together a scrapbook which will be uploaded to the UK for publishing with mypublisher.com into a 'real' table top book. It will be a present for her mother who lives in England. I almost feel like a member of the family now that I have cropped, cut, pasted, arranged and enhanced everybody. We hope to upload everything tomorrow afternoon if all goes well. It has been a huge learning curve and a wonderful journey for me. I wish I could be there to see 'Mum' crack it open on her special day...
I've created a unicorn element by request for you... Making it caused me to wonder about unicorns - from what I gather is the unicorn originates from Greek Mythology. I have to be honest that I am unsure how this relates to Christianity. I try to be careful of what I expose myself to - not because I am a prude, but because I desire to fill my mind and spirit with only that which is good and pure and holy. How to be tactful between Christian/Santa Clause, halloween/Christian, Easter Bunny/the cross... I certainly don't desire to offend anyone, but Christ does come first in my life. This is very difficult sometimes when things appear cute and harmless, or purely entertaining. I would be interested to know how you feel about this?

Lovely Linens with Lavender
Its the time of the year when lavender is emerging. Take advantage of this aromatic beauty by tucking sprigs in with your linens. Do you know that lavender is edible as well? Lavender also dries well, to make a lovely dried bouquet which also smells lovely, all year long.
