WOYWW-691-Birthday Wishes And Many more!

Dear Deskers!
Over the past 13 years many of you have become BFFs that I will never meet.
Along with visiting each week, we have gone though 
life changes , death, craft disasters, art emergencies,
and had a lot of fun.
The past year my focus has shifted to care and love for my grandchildren.
I forgot how much energy it takes to be in love!
Today is my birthday, and gifts and cake abound!

I have three wishes for y'all!
1. Cake! lots of Cake!
                                                  2. Friends to celebrate you no matter where you  are!
                                                                3. Self care and good health that we will live to see our grands       blogging on WOYWW!

Huge shout out to BFF Chris for the Eggnog cake! and PA friends for the fun gifts and always feeling held and remembered.
I'm going ot need a lot of TY ATC's!

Use it or lose it- I gave a way a die cut machine- I really dont need more than one, and I still have two,
and decided if I dont use the dies they will go with it, so you can see some die cutting in evidence.
Its been awhile since I worked for Spellbinders, and I can say, their early dies were lovely!
More gifts to open!
More friendship to cherish and enjoy!
More drool to wipe up.
and Happy birthday everyone!
Everyday we are Born, everyday we are free!

 My brave girl is on her second birth journey and asked me for 
Birth Affirmation Cards.

Following my Brave Girl card policy, I used backgrounds from what is left on my desk, and asked Mom to be to choose the affirmations.

WOYWW 658- Let's Be Brave in 2022!

Happy New Year y'all!
Starting off with Brave Girl Cards as I know we are going to need them.
You can see the big sibling card to the pine cone in my 
Quietfire Digital post
A designer asked me to knit her pattern to proof it, I spun the yarn, which I loved, the hat, well, lets say the pattern needs some work, and it will go to my local thrift shop that has a handmade gallery to raise money for the kids in our valley, so win, win.
Big love to all as we do our best to be kind to ech other and stay well!
I still have trouble leaving comments on some blogger sites- and I so enjoy visiting even if I cant comment.
Comments and questions always welcomed.

WOYWW 656-Thanks for the memories!

This christmas is almost another one!
Memory that is.
Beautiful flowers from SIL's parents. I just love red!
Almost all christmas supplies put away today, brave girl cards in the making, and these few projects looking for homes.
I'm mostly staying at home with Covid again raging, and wanting to stay negative in a good way to be there for my daughter expecting in February!
Merry and happy everything to y'all!
