mini milestones

Hello!


















I am celebrating a mini milestone of completing the revisions of a second draft of text for the book before reviewing it again (and again?) and sending it off to my publisher (I still love saying that) for the next deadline. Each time I reach one of these mini-goals, I give myself a little break to visit a blog, scroll around Facebook, or grab a glass of fruit-flavored seltzer ... and, maybe a cookie or two ...


















Most of the project-making is behind me. There will be 35 projects in all! Some will be familiar and some will be new but all will be very easy and very pretty!














How is it already May 15th?!

Okay ... back to work!

Hi Elyse,

I thought I would stop by and see what you are up to. I always keep an eye open to your Facebook.

35 projects!!! Wow, that's allot of work to set up. You must be natural at this, and more importantly love it.

I love pretty, so I can't wait to see what you are creating. It's raining here, so I am guessing it's raining by you too. Nice weather to help you focus.

Have fun creating.

Karen
