My granddaughter Bella came over today to help me paint.  So while we were waiting for the ceiling to dry, I showed her how to make rosettes out of paper. This is what she came up with:
                                                 This is Bella and her family

                                       The frame below is her and her cousin Sofia

                                         Close up of rosettes
                                       This frame is for her mom's friend Angie

It is my right to be uncommon-if I can.
I seek opportunity-not security.
I want to take the calculated risk;
to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed.
I refuse to barter incentive for a dole.
I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence;
the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.
I will never cower before any master
nor bend to any threat.
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid;
to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit
of my creations and to face the world
boldly and say, this I have done.
All this is what it means to be an American.

_"My Creed" by Dean Alfange_

I love this poem.

clip board

I saw Teresa Collins make a clipboard on Good Things Utah. So I thought I would make me one. It's a good way to use up all your bling---then you can go and buy more bling!!

The Book "The Discovery of Witches"

I just read the best book it is called "The Discovery of Witches  I could not put it down.  If you liked the twilight series  I think you will like this book. Even if you didn't read the twilight books, or you read it and didn't like it,  I think this is a book you will like. Anyhow I did. Post a comment for me and let me know what you think.

burlap and linen pillows

So I went to the"Graphics Fairy" because I have seen so many other blogs using their designs, which are free I might add. They have tons of free images that you can download. So here are a few that I used.
