We have a WINNER!!!

My granddaughter competed her first ever solos in a dance competition this weekend. 
We are all so proud of her and what she has accomplished after being so 
mistreated and bullied at her last studio. 


You did GREAT!

Craft Class

“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” 
― A.A. MilneWinnie-the-Pooh

Good Morning. 
I am happy to stop by and share a few things with you. 
 I  get together with my friends and family for a craft class about once a week.
Several of us get together and spend time in fellowship.
My friends, daughter, and grandchildren all meet, create, laugh, eat good food, and 
just have a wonderful time being with one another.
Most times we don't even get anything done, but it isn't all about that. 
We lift one another up and encourage one another. 

We were blessed the past few weeks to celebrate some very special birthdays. 
And birthdays are always more fun with kids! The little ones had not started school yet,
we had a full house to celebrate with! There were lots of giggles, icing covered faces, and paint 
stained hands. 
We also drew secret pal names last week.
I could give you a hint who mine is, but I won't! :) 

Here are a few photos of some of our most recent times together. 

Thank you for stopping by!
 I hope you have a blessed and wonderful day.

Welcome to my blog!
I am so happy to be sharing my journey with you.
Above is a photo of me at a local festival, Mayfest, in North Myrtle Beach, SC. 
My daughter, granddaughter, and I created and sold  our gourd art, paintings, 
cards, and crocheted items and had the most wonderful time meeting
new people, laughing, and sharing the experience with each other. 

The photo shows just a bit of my gourds and gourd birdhouses that we created. 
The gourd jewelry was painted and designed by my 10,  at the time,  year old 

That is it for now! I do hope you will stop back by and visit again soon.
We have lots more to share with you and are excited to get started!

You can visit my daughters rubber stamp shop >>Fresh Brewed Designs<<
She sells rubber stamps for card making  and paper crafting as well as hosts card making challenges. 
We are adding GOURD ART to her shop! 
So be on the look out for a Gourd Art Category to hit there very soon! 

Have a very happy and blessed day,
