A Little Bit of Everything!

Well hello, My Bloggy Chums! I just got back from Michael's (the craft store...rather like your Hobby Lobby back east) and feel overwhelmed by all the crafts I would like to do but don't have the time for! So instead of working on things I really OUGHT to be doing I am going to catch up on some things I've been wanting to blog about and haven't!











First, I want to say a HUGE and heartfelt "Thank You!" to my sweet friend, Debra, for the SWEETEST package I got this last week! She and I have decided to exchange "Yummy Boxes" once a month and I got my first package from her. Just LOOK at these yummy things she sent:










Just SOME of the sweet-as-can-be things she sent for my Miss Emily's birthday (she's turning SIX!!!)...plus SO MANY incredible ideas for decorating, parties and other fun ocassions. She is a "new friend" and we already have discovered we have so much in common, including a profound and abiding love for PINK, fairies, girly-frou-frou, vintage just about anything and planning parties with lots of lovely details!







And look at this incredible little birdhouse box...it opens up!














Thank you so much, Dear Debra! Your package is coming soon!





Also, I just HAVE to share pics of my sweet little Andrew mostly because there are so few of them. And not for the reasons you'd typically expect to see fewer pics of the youngest child! The reason why there are so few photos of this gorgeous child is because he is my VELCRO BABY and is always on my hip when I am photographing his sisters!! But his teething eased a bit this last week and I was able to get him to play alone a bit, albeit in my box of lace, trim and ribbon! So good to see him happy again after a few weeks of discomfort...
























And lastly, I want to show you, because I am just SO THRILLED ABOUT IT and because I KNOW you will understand my incredible excitement over it.....
MY FUTURE STUDIO!!!!!!








It is OH SO EXCITING!!!

And look what I found at a local antique store to put on the door of this beloved of rooms...

Well that's my "little bit of everything".... off I go to eat dinner and work on some new projects.

Don't forget tomorrow is Monday. That means YUMMIES for YOU! :)

p.s. Oh and just in case anyone wonders...I DO know that a "necessary room" is another word for a bathroom. ;) Just thought it was oh-so-appropriate and a kind of a joke since without my creating I would be downright certifiable! So this room will be "Necessary." Didn't want any of my British friends to be feeling sorry for the poor little American girl who mistakenly put a bathroom sign on her studio door!!! :)
