Odds & Ends

Did everyone have a great weekend and St. Patrick's Day? We didn't do anything special for the holiday. We did go to look at new houses on Sunday though, as a part of our never-ending struggle with the question, "To move, or not to move." We have lived in our current home for a long, long time and this subject has come up time and time again over the years. We love our lot and backyard; we don't love our house. It's as simple as that. And yet when we think about moving, we haven't a clue as to where we would like to move to. So occasionally we go on these treks to look at new homes and new areas to see if anything interests us.

We didn't find any homes that sparked an interest, except for the one pictured above. It is from Bethany Lowe Designs (I just love all her glittery creations) and I simply could not resist. The sweet vintage chenille chick with flower hat is from a trip earlier in the week to the antique mall.
Yesterday was Day 6 of our Hippity Hop Easter Swap and this is the lovely gift I opened from Karin of Creative Chaos. They are the palest yellow crystal earrings and they sparkle and shine so beautifully! Thanks Karin ~ I plan to wear them on Easter :)
I just completed Days 14 thru 17 of my 21 Day Journal this morning. The page above features a wonderful tag also created by Karin. I've been using my sewing machine to embellish more and more of my artwork lately. As long as I can keep my desk in some sort of order, then I can leave my sewing machine out and use it more often.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am reading "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle and participating in the online classes with Oprah and Tolle on Monday nights. I am thoroughly enjoying both the book and classes. It is an amazing book and I find that my enthusiasm is spilling over to my journal pages.

I just love those sparkly houses... I really have to buy one! They just do nothing like that in the UK!

don't move! I'm in the middle of moving (I've just bought my first house!!)Just think of all of the art supplies that you'd have to sort and pack. Not fun at all.
