On the First Day of Christmas...

My true love said to me, "You told me not to fix the tree!"
I am already pooped! I have been wrestling with the Christmas tree for hours! We have a 12 foot artificial tree with too many plugs to connect and I have "never" put it together until today! Me and my ingenious ideas! I told hubby, who is out of town, not to connect the four sections of the tree together, thinking it would be easier to shape the branches! NOT!! Well, the important thing is, all of the lights are connected and working! (right now at least.) My son even had to help me out with the top part of the tree. By that time I needed a shower AND some serious coffee! Thank you son!! Whewh! Glad that part is over with, Now to decorate it.
I also put my vintage looking white garland up around the front door as well, while I was taking a breather from the tree. lol! It is so pretty. I think my matching wreath got left up in the attic...   Sigh. That will wait until tomorrow. {smile} Now, off to find a Christmas theme for my blog!
Happy Decorating!!

I Am American and this is My Country!

I believe in my heart that the anger and revolt that people are voicing in the social media groups, in protest marches, in truly very small ways are simply trying to convey as do I the words that here to follow. Though extremely simple, I believe it is how most of us truly feel.
My heart feels such great sadness and such heaviness to see this country, the place that I have called home for all of my life, turn into a place that I can barely recognize any more. Considering that true, honest, hard working, Americans have sacrificed so very much for the freedoms that we see being taken from us by our own government, no less, on a daily basis. And with each new election of government offices we find ourselves governed by those who work against the further building of this once great, unified nation, but rather they only seek to tear down all that is good, and honorable. Stomping under their own feet the blood, sweat, agonizing tears of loss that help to build this country to the great nat…

Finally!!

I have for so very long, a few years now, wanted to make a doll house album. I have talked about it, drawn out ideas and designs for it, and mulled over it for quite some time. The only other project that took me this long to pull together was my first Recipe Album!! Yesterday, I decided on a design and today a theme! Two elements one absolutely must possess in order to create any thing at all! I was thinking I should like to have my book designed so that I can have interactive paper dolls in it. I thought that I would design them as well, but as I glanced through an old 2009 desk calendar by Mary Engelbreit, I decided I would try to use the many paper dolls I have in the magazines I have collected of hers over the years instead. I think I have found a suitable paper line as a base to start. So! Onward and upward I go in true Mary Engelbreit fashion!!
Wish me luck!
