A lil' bit older...


Well...guess who's a lil' bit older and wiser today...yup...ME!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to meeeeeee...
Just finished Bridget's Itty Bitty House Swap pages...all 30 of them. That is a gift in itself! It was a huge project...so much details but it was worth it. I can't wait to hold the final book in my hand. It's going to be AMAZING!

Received surprise goodies in the mail today...a b-day surprise book/journal from my sweet sis Mary Ann and thoughtful Melba also see her here.
Melba also sent a pretty flower wire & a "41" + seashell magnets...sooooooo SWEET!
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART...for remembering and sending such a PERFECT GIFT to me!
I LOVE IT!!!!
I'll post pics later as it's sooooo late...
and I wanted to also give myself another present...

This BLOG.

Yes, this is my first entry with Blogspot. This has been one of my goals for 2 years now. I have my beautiful sis, Mary Ann and all of you wonderful and creative soules out there to thank for this new venture. I've been thinking about this for awhile but never felt like it was a good time...or I would have anything worthy to share...but a lot of you Sweet ladies (not discriminating against men but haven't had any male bloggers reach out to me, as of yet...) have reached out to me and have nudged me to take the plunge and discover the beauty of finding new and interesting things in life via the web and also find more creative soules out there.

So, I say this to you and my sis...Thank you so much for helping me find my passion...You are an inspiration to me and hope to learn and grow with this lil' blog of mine. Also,
my sis has been an inspiration to me for so many years...such a creative and wonderful supporter for me. I truly am grateful for her continued positive encouragement for all of my artful attempts. Thank you, my dear Sis...my MENTOR...you are the very BEST!!! and I sure love you...
2 weeks ago, I started a private blog Labour of Love at Wordpress...but something was missing...I do like some of the features in Wordpress...the individual pages, the stats, etc. but it was missing something...widgets...music, flash...that's what I'd like to have on my blog. So, I hope I don't offend anyone out there for switching...
Go here to see my first posts...
Well...I just wanted to share some of the prezzies I've received for my very "old" birthday self and introduce myself to this new world I'm entering.
Thank you so much for visiting and I send my warmest Welcome to you from me and my lil' world...
xoxo jo ;)
