I’m skipping Mother’s Day this year

I am so happy to be a mom to my son, stepdaughter and Stepson, but this Mother’s Day I am missing my mom. She passed away in June this past year. I know she is watching over us from heaven but this is a sad time for me. I am wishing all of you a blessed Day with your families. Life is so precious. Kiss your family and let them know you love them. Love to all of you…..

Here’s another set of 2,5″ Cherub tags, this one I called Valentine Greeting:

Wings of Whimsy: Valentine Greeting 2,5" Tags #vintage #ephemera #freebie #printable #cherub #valentine #tagIf you have a 2,5″ punch, these are ready in 2 minutes 😉 Maybe you have a circular punch, but smaller? I applied some simple math, and came up with the following

Conversion Table:

  • Print 100% – 2,5″ tags
  • Print 80% – 2″ tags
  • Print 70% – 1 3/4″ tags
  • Print 60% – 1,5″ tags
  • Print 50% – 1 1/4″ tags
  • Print 40% – 1″ tags

Snuggle Time

It is super cold outside. 28 degrees here in Jonesboro Arkansas. I just finished working on wedding favors , a cake topper and bridal bouquets yesterday. I’m relieved. Posting after her wedding this weekend. I can’t spoil the fun. I need to clean up my craft room now. It is a big mess. Why is it that after each big project my crafting studio looks like a whirl wind hit it????  I’m new to blogging so I’m hoping to grow and learn along the way.

Well, Ta Ta for now. I’m going to warm up my coffee and getting ready for a fun filled day. Make today a wonderful day. Look around and find inspiration in what you see, feel and touch. God bless you all.

Happy 2015

I hope all of you had a great New Years celebration. I for one, was in bed before midnight. I spent the evening with my husband and son. Watched the twilight zone marathon. I still think the pig nose people look freaky. Anywho, I’m working on wedding favors for my nieces wedding this week. I am a crafting procrastinator. I know that I have friends out there who do the same thing. I will post a picture of her favors and bouquet I am making after the wedding. I don’t want to still her thunder. You know what I mean. Ta Ta for now crafting friends. Have a wonderful day

It’s almost 2015, time to plan ahead!!!!!

imageTime to reflect on 2014 and plan for 2015. I’m excited for this new year to begin. FAMILY TIME is so important. I will try to make more of an effort to make sure and be in the moment as much as possible. I get caught up in what needs to be done and what I want to do and I need to make more time to be in the present this coming year. I have a wonderful family and great friends.

With that said, I also want to make more handmade crafts for my loved ones. I have a big to do list. I’m sure all of you do too. One by one, I will move forward and craft on. I hope to blog this year and figure out how to blog, I’m very new to this. I want to film and post on YouTube and to create and post more on my etsy shop reenec@etsy.com.

Everyone, have a great start to the new year. Remember to STOP and LIVE in the moment along the way😃
