Really Crafty Link Party with Mikaya and Samantha

Thanks to Keeping It Real for always having such great, really crafty parties! Today, I’m partying with Mikaya (age 13) and Samantha (age 2). Mikaya asked for pink, white, and black Hello Kitty letters to hang in her room. I used 9″ wood letters, Hello Kitty ribbon and embellishments, up-cycled pink and black tulle, and tons of love!

Samantha’s Grandma and Mom asked for ladybugs and bright, bold colors. I used red polka dot ribbon, ladybug embellishments, yellow, green, and red paper and card stock, all assembled in a re-purposed black frame.

Both pieces were delivered yesterday to happy, smiling customers!

Disappointments Outnumbered by Smiles

Disappointments Outnumbered by Smiles…

My big book launch day (which wasn’t) included quite a few disappointments, but an infinitely larger number of feel good moments. My friends and family gathered and celebrated my accomplishment in a beautiful way! I already have 17 pre-orders for when by book is finally produced. That day will be soon and I will be shouting it from the rooftops! In So Many Words will be available in paperback and as an Ebook on Amazon and on this site. Stay tuned. You will be the first to know.

Here are a few preliminary photos from the party which make me smile from ear to ear!
