Happy Easter!

Coffee of the Day - Moon Pie (I'll drink their coffee until it's gone, but we no longer eat their treats. discovered that they sadly use palm oil in their products. insert sad face here....)

Happy Happy Easter to each and every one of you! well, at least those of you who celebrate the holiday, that is. ;) Happy Sunday to the rest of you. :) may your day be glorious whether you celebrate the holiday or not!!!

I want to share with you a project I made for our son's fiancee's family. I also made one that I gave to our neighbors.


I started with a cardboard cheese box, pained it several shades of green with acrylic paint, added cs grass, and then topped with some fabulous wooden veneer fencing pieces I found at JoAnn's. the fence pieces were distressed with Tim Holtz distress markers. various sizes of Prima flowers dotted with stickles were added to complete the little garden boxes.

This sure does say 'springtime,' doesn't it?! :)

Have a wonderful day! Jennifer

Where I've Been...

Coffee of the Day - none, actually! eegads! out of milk at the house, so I'm drinking Bolthouse Farms Greens.....


Sorry I've been away for such a long time. hubby and I took some time off last week for a fun trip to Boston. we've always wanted to go. let me tell you, for a history buff like me, one week was NOT enough time! ;)



Only saw a small portion of the sites we wanted to see, but LOVED every single moment of it. we took our time. could have rushed and had a chance to visit more, but we really wanted to enjoy the visit.


oh my gosh, are the people there ever so nice!!! yummy food, too. some of the best was to be found in a fabby little pub not far from The Commons. it was the only place we actually went back for a second visit - Emmet's Irish Pub. Willie, the bartender, made the trip all the more enjoyable. :) of course he knew exactly how to pour my Guinness!



one of the highlight's of the trip was getting to see Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren at a speaking engagement. we were privileged to be invited to volunteer for the event. both are quite inspiring.


I hope to get some crafting done this weekend. Easter is right around the corner, and I am not the least bit ready!

we still have lots of snow on the ground. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are! :) enjoy your weekend and be blessed!
