I hope my Irish Friends can find use of this small mini kit I've created with my friend JanMary in mind. I was inspired when I made one for my friend KimB - and it meant so much to her! Well, Kim, I apologise that JanMary's kit is substantially bigger than yours, but I could not resist using some of your FABULOUS commercial use items - they make it SO EASY! The ribbons in this mini were a snap using KimB's products, so scoot over to her blog and find out how to make some of these CU items YOURS! Her products are stored HERE.

To see more of my own products, I proudly sell at the Sophia Sarducci Shop as Olivia Dorazio. Just click HERE to see my own, and my fellow designers items.

I also have to FANK my KIMMIE for the blog/flag pin idea - she started it, so I created the Irish Version for JanMary's kit. Soooooo..... would my fellow Canadians like a pin? My friends across the border in the USA? Feedback could make it happen folks - preferably on my blog rather than 4shared as I don't always check there?

I have a need for prayer. I'm going to be vague and ask for you to pray for an unnamed need in my life. I can't blog my need at this time, at the request of whom the need is for, but it affects me too. So, this is why I've not been about the past few days - I'm keeping pretty busy. If a time comes when I can share with you, I will, its just not yet, and please don't worry, things are ok, just weird. I wish things were NORMAL, but I do know that GOD HAS A PLAN, and its in HIS time.

Impatient hearts want action - NOW!
We fear God's time will be too late;
How prone we are to rush ahead -
When God says, "Wait!"

God's schedule always runs on time,
Though years seem days or day seem years;
But happy he who moves God's pace
And has no fears.

Not fast nor slow God's timepiece is,
So let us set our time with HIS.

I'll leave you with a VERY SWEET article you'll enjoy to listen to from NPR. Just click on the little audio icon (LISTEN HERE) to hear it from the lady its about. GREAT for a giggle. Just click HERE.

I'd also say, I have removed snapshots from my blog. In case you don't know what snapshots is or ... was, well it was an addon that allowed a small preview to be shown when you would hover over a hotlink on my blog. The problem was, it appears to have been distracting and annoying to some readers, and I thank you for letting me know. I desire my blog to be user friendly to YOU!

Another thing: When I blogged my last entry I forgot to thank AMYW for the use of her TAGS. They are BEAUTIFUL - my small slideshow really did not do them justice. You can find them HERE, well worth the purchase! Also, AMY has a ROCKIN' Viewer Disk element for giveaway on her blog right now - a MUST HAVE. Just click HERE!


  1. These are SO pretty & I, for one, would LOVE a USA verson! Your talent is amazing!!

  2. Well the tags look lovely. What about a pin that states I proudly live in a state of insanity? I'll sport that one on my blog! Thanks for the mention dollface!

  3. LOL!!! OMGosh, gotta LOVE Amy!!! I'll go for the "state of insanity" as well!

    I would LOVE one to sport on my blog to go along with my Italian theme Barb - that would be SOOOOO cool!

    I am also Irish, so I shall hang this one up too! THANK YOU!!!

    Oh, I just had a silly thought. How about a flag with a bottle of Heinz 57 sauce on it??? NOT, NO, JUST KIDDING!!! That would be a copyright violation anyhoo, eh? ROFL!

    Sweetie, you are in my thoughts and prayers. All things for a purpose. LOVE the poem, it is ALL too true!

    Take care love and may you have a QUIET, RELAXING and PRODUCTIVE weekend.

    Linda :)

    My prayers are with you and want to thank you for sharing the poem - I will be passing it on to my daughter who may find comfort in reading it as she has been going through some "impatient" times.

    Blessings to you and your family.

    Oops, yes I would like a Canadian pin!
