Milestones & Millstones

I guess this is Part II of the last post. So much happened in 2013 (as with all of us). The kids. My true Blessings. Mr 12 had a great sporting year. Cricket, football, cricket.

The latest edition of Scrapbook Creations is out. Issue 93 is especially cool as my fellow Divas and I put together an entire library of ways to Celebrate your Life! Fairly apt considering we get caught up in daily nonsense and forget to be still and say “Hooray for Us”. Here is my little projectContinue reading “Celebration Inspiration”
