So, I am trying something new here today.

I appreciate all the kindness that has been shown to me this week for our celebrations and our disappointments.

Do you remember that quote from “Beaches” when Bette Midler said “Enough about me, what do you think of me?”.

My friend Julie and I have laughed over that line many times over the years.

But, that is kind of how I am feeling today

Except, enough about me, I want to share about YOU!

So I am going to try doing Fridays as a share post about projects that other people are working on and maybe some random tidbits of the week.

Get it?




I know, very complicated!

Anywho, here it goes.

First up, this post moved me to tears this morning. So worth the read.

Second, this one actually cracks me up.

The famous mesas of Monument Valley, Utah.

If you don’t already know Jamie from That’s My Letter, you should stop by.

This lady is like a machine. Not only does she create a ton of things, but they are so versatile. She is a lady of many hats.

This post in particular amazes me.

Her kids both have birthday’s around Halloween so she is doing one big Halloween Party, and these are the gift bags she made.

Gorgeous, right?

My Blondie’s birthday is the day before Halloween, but sorry ladies, you will not be getting these gift bags from me!

She is only having 3 girls sleepover, plus her sister, oh and her one guy friend who will come over, but no worries, he will not be sleeping over!

But still, no fancy hand made bags.

Nice job Jamie!

Last share is from A Trip to Holland

This project goes to show you that being crafty is really not that complicated.

You can get a custom look with just a little inspiration!

So, I hope you enjoyed our first Show & Tell party.

Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
