Reminder of the Important Things in Life

As I went to let the dogs out this morning, I noticed something odd. The toy that Little Man threw in the pool yesterday caught my eye.  There sitting on top was the cutest thing!  It was a frog sitting there- just hanging on for dear life.  I took some pictures and gently lifted it out to safety.  I think that was a subtle reminder for me to keep taking notice of other things in life and not always focus on myself.  Keep looking for others in need and be there for them- to help them.  

Retirement Card in Blue

It's quiet this morning.  My oldest is already gone to school and my youngest and hubby are still sleeping.  I just finished a card for a person who is retiring at my husbands office. I used scrapbook paper for the card and covered it with blue striped paper. I then used quilling strips in navy blue to accent. The flower petals are one full light blue strip with a quarter of a navy blue added, crimped, rolled into a coil and pinched. The leaves and stem are simply green strips crimped as well. On the inside, I wrapped the blue striped paper around and printed out the sentiment for the right side. Hope you enjoy! Fairly simple ��

Tutorial for Making a Quilled Heart

So I found an app on my IPad called Touchcast.  After playing around a little, I decided I would give it a try to see if I could do a tutorial.  I chose to make a simple heart out of two tear drops.  Here is the tutorial. I apologize for the little bit of trouble I had getting my pictures to disappear in the tutorial...
Let me know what you think!

A preview of Barbara Delinsky's "Sweet Salt Air"

I had the opportunity of participating in the latest chatterbox from  I received a copy of Barbara Delinsky's newest book "Sweet Salt Air" and it was a great summer read.  I enjoyed getting into the main characters Nicole and Charlotte.  The story is about two close friends who got to know each other on an island.  The story goes on to reunite them later in life and because of some drama that happened the last time they saw each other Charlotte is reluctant to go back but know she must to help her friend with an amazing cookbook that she is writing.  The story is easily relatable to anyone and you also learn about a few topics as you read.  A great summer read!  Check out her information and other books here...
