Things that make me Smile

This gorgeous heavy snow that makes this tree look so majestic is also trouble here in Maine this week. We were without power for 48hrs which is just long enough to appreciate your running water!! The sun shining on these trees for the last two days has been beautiful.

This is a great bag I won from my friend at MeAndMyWorld, formally Lilolme. This is a great reversable bag and the colors just make me smile. Thanks so much Jenne. You worked hard on this bag and I'm so grateful to have it. Check out her new love of photography she is sharing on her blog now.

Love-my-scrapbooking website has my paperclips on her techniques page along with how to use alcohol inks. Thanks for checking it out. She also started a "scrappy" group on Facebook.

Winter Art Card

Here is another product of that wonderful wreath stamp I borrowed from a friend. I tied some twigs above the piece of birch bark. I really enjoy layering these days.

Finalists and Winners of Staedtler Bottles of Hope

Check out all the wonderful Bottles Of Hope chosen to be the top 25 finalists and winners for this years challenge. They are being donated to Dream Street Foundation for the children.
I am so excited to share my bottle, #23, was first place winner for "best expression of hope". I was greatly inspired to make this with the hope to win the charity money for the hospital we used here in Maine when my 5 1/2 yr old was dx with type 1 diabetes. So the wings are made with an insulin bottle. The verses on the charm speak for themselves.
