Hello Friends

I have been keeping myself quite busy lately. There has been lots of painting, decorating, and rearranging going on around here. (will post pics in a few days)
We have a busy weekend ahead; we are having a sweet 16 party for my youngest tomorrow and I still have a ton to do to get ready.
I will post a thorough update next week chock full of pics.

Until then, I have jewels to share with you.. My box of treasures got misplaced in the midst of all the decorating and painting. So now I finally have pictures to share.


Jewels of the Sea swap..

Treasures from:

Michelle G. -

Thank you all so very much!
Big Huggs..

Thank You

I have been in a struggle with myself about whether or not to make this post.. After talking it over with Cecily and getting her blessing to do so, I feel more at ease..
First off, we both want to thank you all so much for your congrats and well wishes that came pouring in to my inbox. It saddens me to tell you now that Cecily lost the baby. We have had time as a family to come to terms with this loss so I feel a bit of comfort in sharing this with you now. It is still a struggle for Cec, some days are better than others, but she is a strong, beautiful woman and such an inspiration to those around her.

Thank you all so much.
Big Huggs,
