One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Merry Monday # 113

I love pink white and silver...such pretty Christmas colors!
I had to play before I leave on vacation.
I won't be back until July 7th, friends!
Yikes!  I am going to have some withdrawals for sure!
I am bringing things to practice my copics
and some watercolor projects too.
So maybe when I get home, I will have some things to put together and then to post for you to see.
  If you want to get a head start on your Christmas card making, then for sure go
I am heading to Arizona...I know... hot time of the year to be going there, right?
But it is a BIG end of the season volleyball tournament for both granddaughters,
and my husband coaches Lily's of course we have to be there!
Both daughters and their families will be there also, then we are going to stay and play by the pool and do other fun stuff.
So if I don't make it in here tomorrow, then I will see you in a few weeks!
