Good News, Good Deed and Blossoms



Besides having my nose stuck here in the computer all week (FINALLY coming to an end of the BIG project, really!) - I've not too much else to tell. We had our first nice and sunny day on Friday; so nice that we had dinner out on the patio - without having to bundle up. Then today was a bit of both, warm then cold and windy. I think Spring is slowly winning over though.

The GOOD NEWS is that my friend JanMary has been PUBLISHED - her second time. Why, I'm so proud I could burst! She's even receiving money for this... is this the beginning of a lucrative career, my friend? Her digital layouts are simply lovely - no wonder they attracted attention. To find out more, just click HERE.

The good deed is not my own, but one that I read the other day on the internet. It moved me to tears! This young lady actually raised money and BOUGHT an orphanage that she had worked at. Wow - that's love in action. You can read about it HERE.

And lastly, here's a little something to brighten up your spring layouts or projects. Its a pretty simple element but you might find it useful. Just click on the graphic to download. Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Greetings LOVELY lady! Thank you for the NICE welcome back and oh my, YES, my Heavenly Daddy takes WONDERFUL care of me and lets me know when I need to take it easy since I am not so good at it all by myself. *wink*

    I knew the moment I would NOT have Internet and struggled with PS on the laptop that I was to enjoy some time alone without feeling the need to do for everybody else. In fact, it took me three days to find my way back to my computer chair here at home once we returned! LOL! Imagine that! *big grin*

    How EXCITING for JanMary! That is just the COOLEST! I also cannot wait to hear about or see your unveiled BIG project. I just KNOW that is shall be SPECTACULAR whatever it be MOST creative one!

    May your day be as BEAUTIFUL as you are darlin'!

    Love and hugs,
    Linda :-)

  13. Hi Barb, stopped in at JanMary and she has beautiful pages, I may have to start paper scrapping now...

    The Orphanage story is amazing.

    I have yet to get my pictures of the bloosoms, the apricots didn't bloom here or the peaches. Now I hoping for the apples to bloom, the crops are in bad shape this year I'll have to get my fruit from Naramata I don't think the damage was so severe there.

    Your gift will help me very much that was the whole idea of taking my pictures lol we much be kindred thinkers...

    Have a wonderful day.

    Lucy
