my post i wrote yesterday somehow got DELETED>>>i dunno how that happened!  arghhh! & it was a wicked long post!!!!!

welp, i’ll try to recreate that post as best that my little brain can recall…oh- so careless of me!!! waaah!!!  the post below really is for monday & this post is actually a recreation of yesterday!!!

it was the start of chinese new year yesterday>>>GUNG HAY FAT CHOY!  loosely translated it means prosperity & good luck to you in cantanese chinese.  it’s the year of the boar (or “pig” if you’d rather)…i can’t remember the link that i had found, but i’m sure if you did a yahoo or google search, you’ll get many responses!

then i showed a pix of my lil crochet purse ( that my blog sis jes commented on previous post) i made over the weekend…is that not cute?  i think so…i’m thinking about making more of these for my shop or sticking a tea bag for my swap partner for the tea party + swap…hmmm, we’ll see…


& i wrote about quite a few new links i wanted to share>>>

like the artful water blog, started by leah & jessie…to collectively muse about julia cameron’s lastest book, finding water, the 3rd in a trilogy.  i just ordered my book on amazon & will get it soon…i’m a bit nervous about committing to the group mainly because i haven’t yet read the 1st two books!  but i have quite a few blog sistas & pals, so i’m comforted by that.

i also wrote about in the post i stupidly & so accidently deleted about jamie‘s new site>>>wishcasting.  how cool to be able to make a wish or a few & have others help make your wish(es) come to fruition (or at least magnify them)…i’ve always believed that with a little faith & determination, anything is possible, including wishes.

then i mentioned my blog pal, lisa, who very recently opened her on-line shop>>>it’s all about scrapbooking.  pls. check it out & maybe you just might find that special embellishment, paper or new gizmo there 🙂 .


have you seen the latest issue of this mag? it’s the women’s entrepreneur issue.  in a few weeks i will be going to their event on this very subject in chicago>>>i can’t wait! i went to that last year with my sisters & it was AMAZING!  i learned so much & not to mention so wonderfully inspired!  i got to meet the cl staff, anna corba (i *heart* her!), lisa norris & amy butler  & so many other folks i can’t even begin to tell you!


go on, get your copy if you haven’t already…you get this in that issue!

getting this mag couldn’t have come at a more perfect time.  i was ruminating about what to write for my dear blog sis melba‘s CaC‘s monday swaps for next month, which i’ll be guest-hosting.  i initially was going to do a “green” swap, due to the fact that i love to garden & this is the time i generally start seeds indoors; it’s one of my fave colors; that spring begins in march, a time of rebirth & renewal of the earth, etc…

but when i got my cl copy, it reminded me that march is national craft month & this is soooo perfect for march’s swap theme.  i mean, you put CaC bloggers & CRAFTS= CREATIVE CRAFT SWAP!  yay, it’s coming together!

now, how to word my post…i’ll think of something.


yesterday, i made an atc for the justBe post.  i’d like to give it away.  if you are interested, just leave me a comment stating so.  i will draw a name tonite (midnight, cst) & then announce the lucky winner tomorrow on fat tuesday. 

i’m getting ready to visit some dear pals in st. louie this friday (angie wangie, michel & jen)…i’m so excited because it’s gonna be a CREATIVE GIRLS weekend!  i can’t wait!!!  angie wangie has planned so much for us! 

& yesterday i pulled out a card & i believe it was compassion

& the affirmation: ” the vibration of compassion shines through my every cell!”

i think i need to revist this card today after my blogging blunder, lol!
