Well, first of all today is my baby sister's 27th birthday. My...what happened! She grew up!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY my dear sweet little sister...you've grown into a woman I admire so much. I love you!!!
So Jenny's sweet little birthday has inspired me to make all kinds of pretty things. I posted some pics yesterday I think of new cards that have been a result. FUN!!! I'm hitting on all the birthdays in July with these! Having fun myself writing notes to folks. It does a person good to get a handwritten note these days...its like whoa!!! A real letter!!! In MY mailbox? My Aunt was just telling me the other day when she got her mail that she almost dismissed the card I sent her for one of those direct mail companies that try to trick you by using "real" looking handwriting...of course, upon closer inspection she realized it was from me :) hee hee!
Scott has been pickling like a crazy man! Between our garden and my Dad's bounty of cukes -he has quite a stash of the mouth puckering dill pickles. Yum! I think he needs a cute label for the top of these, don't you? See...more inspiration!!!
Isn't his garden so cute? :) And speaking of cute...little farm helpers :)
Its only 7:19 a.m., I got up with the rooster (Scott) and had my coffee, watered my flowers and felt like blogging...or writing. Isn't blogging wild? I've enjoyed seeing friends and acquaintences find much success by simply blogging like crazy! Of course-- they definitely have a gift, talent to share. I never intended to find success as a blogger, but it certainly interests me in the way that it all works. I always thought it as a forum to share...not that folks want to know that much about me particularly...but when I get fun ideas I've always loved to share those ideas. Let other people feel my joy and maybe it can bring them some joy too! In years past, it was mostly in the arena of scrapbooking, of course. Nowadays...I don't have the motivation to scrapbook much...I'm not really sure what category my blog falls into now. Just your average randomness, I guess! LOL! But seriously, I just feel like I'm in this in between stage...transitioning. I feel impatient. Going to school is awesome...but sometimes frustrating...because there are so many possible outcomes and I just have to be patient and faithful.
I do feel very fortunate that my schedule is not packed so tightly this summer-- just working a few days a week at Inscriptions and doing one class. So I have had time to think about the direction I'm going in with my online adventures...the truth is most entrepreneurers and businesses almost HAVE to have an online presence in some way to grow.
Well, I must get out and get my walk in before the temp gets cooking! Hopefully I'll have pickle jar labels to share soon :)
