Finally Had Time to Make Something

Life has been a bit out of the ordinary lately and I haven't been able to do any crafting. I was very happy to sneak a little time this morning to finish up my mom's birthday gift. It was such fun! Here is the before picture.


And here is the finished product.

I am so pleased with how it turned out and I think my mom will love it. It was such fun to make and really did not take that long. I can't wait to see what she thinks.

Thought I'd share some pictures of the Palm Beach shoreline on a recent evening. It was so peaceful and serene.

This is why I live here . . . because it's not always hurricanes and hot, steamy weather.



It's my little corner of God's big, beautiful creation . . .


As the sun goes down on another day, the moon will light our way . . .

Hope you have a great week!!

Nice pictures of the beach. It made me want an ocean visit, but I'm pretty far away.

You are so crafty, and you seem to really enjoy it. Good for you.

Hi Joyce
I'm glad you're going to join in the porch party. I've added your name to my list. How lucky you are to live near the ocean. It must be wonderful to live there. Hope your mom liked the letter. I LOVE it!!
