Secret Places And Dreams By Leaping Frog Designs

Earlier this week I saw this
lovely sentiment on Kim Dellow's blog
You can find her here
It comes from the Sentimental Stamp Set
put out by Wendy Vecchi Studio 490
I don't know too much about this set because
it is in the UK but looks delightful.

The photo was taken on our family farm
late this fall on a walk with my sister.
A very special and beautiful
spot by the river

Free Vintage Christmas Post Cards ATC Sheet For You

Fun sheet of small post cards
from my collection
These are around ATC size..
A couple are a smidgen bigger
These are great for Christmas tags

Have Any Of You Noticed I Can't Seem To Make Up My Mind
As you can tell I have been
playing with my blog this week.
Many of you know that in the
beginning of my blog my friend Jill
designed my header and page.
This year has been so fun
and full of growth for me
Now I feel the time has come
to design my own headers and page...
Or at least
So keep bearing with me as I
experiment and play and try
to find my own style.
Eventually it will look the way
I keep seeing in my minds eye.
(Now there might be a scary sight!)
This funny image above is from Bianca at
Magic Moonlight Free Images
She has so many beautiful images of
women and children.
Coloring pictures has become
my new evening pass time.
Have a great Week!!!
