THIS MORNING WHILE MY HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER WENT TO GET COFFEES, MY SON AND I LISTENED TO SOME LIVELY PRAISE CHORUSES AND I DUG OUT A BOOK BY ONE OF MY DAUGHTER'S FAVORITE AUTHORS, MONICA WELLINGTON. SHE HAS ALSO BECOME A FRIEND OF OURS THROUGH MAIL CORRESPONDENCE. HER BOOKS ARE BRIGHT AND CHEERY AND FULL OF WONDERFUL WORDS AND ILLUSTRATIONS...IN THE BACK OR THROUGHOUT THE BOOK SHE TEACHES YOU SO MANY THINGS, LIKE PLANTING AND TAKING CARE OF A FLOWER GARDEN, OR HOW TO BAKE LOTS OF DIFFERANT RECIPES...YOU'LL LOVE THEM ALL! SHE'S FANTASTIC! ANYWAY, I PULLED OUT "CREPES BY SUZETTE" AND FOLLOWED THE RECIPE IN THE BACK. THEY CAME OUT SO DELISH! YUM! THEY WERE SO SIMPLE AND THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS! YOU CAN FILL THEM WITH ANYTHING FROM JAMS TO FRUITS TO POWDERED SUGAR, COOL WHIP, ANYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE! THEY ARE LIGHT AND FUN TO EAT...TRY THEM! EVEN YOUR PICKIEST OF EATERS ARE SURE TO LIKE THEM, AS LONG AS THEY CAN CUSTOMIZE IT! ENJOY! IF YOU WANT TO CHECK OUT MONICA HER WEBSITE IS; MONICAWELLINGTON.COM.

THIS IS A JOURNAL BOX I WROTE A VERSE I LOVE ON AND PUT IT IN MY BATHROOM. THESE ARE THE PERFECT SIZE TO SEND SOMEONE A QUICK NOTE, SONG LYRIC, VERSE, MEMORY OR JUST DECORATE WITH ANY EMBELLISHMENTS, AND IT IS THE RIGHT SIZE FOR AN ENVELOPE TOO! I MADE A COUPLE FOR FRIENDS AND JUST CUSTOMIZED IT WITH THE VERSE AND STICKERS ACCORDING TO THEIR INTERESTS. TRY IT! :) IT'S FUN!

So proud of my new wreath I made a couple of days ago. I bent an old metal coat hanger and cut fake hydrangeas and bended and twisted them around to make a full any season wreath!
My front door has 3 squares in it, so I cut out patterned pieces of scrapbook paper to fit each one and used glue dots to hold them in place. I can change this look inexpensively as often as I want and it's quick and easy with pretty results! I am thinking about what my house looks like from the street, this weekend I'll change my flags out front and soon my husband and I can get the outside ready to welcome a sweet spring and marvelous summer!
Copy images from the internet and frame them in a black or white frame, depending on the color scheme, to contrast the photo and make it look bold and rich. Make it any size, and hang it up...no one will ever know...shh it will be our secret! :)
