A Special Gift for a Special Boy!!!


Today is Connor's 12th Birthday! Many of you will probably agree with me, that as our kids get older, its harder to pick "just the right gift". Connor didn't really have much on his "gift list" so I decided to create an art piece just for him.
Using some wonderful scrapbook papers from Tim Holtz collection I created a distressed background which was perfect for a tin robot. I had an image in my head that I knew Connor would love.
Using a variety of vintage rusty items and some special pieces my hubby and I had, my robot came together. I added 3 letter "C's" and the number 12 to celebrate today!
Connor was so excited to open this present...his reaction proved that nothing could ever make a stamp on your child's heart like a gift made with LOVE!
Happy Birthday Connor!!! Love Mommy and Daddy!! oxoxo

Our ducks are hatching!!


Our friend Andy has a beautiful country property with a pond. A little over a month ago the ducks started laying eggs. Since winter was still upon us, we decided to help. We have a large commercial incubator so we loaded up the duck eggs. Sure enough most were fertile.
Last night the little ducks started to hatch. The first one is on its way out right now.
STAY TUNED!! I'll post more pictures as they arrive!

Going to see OPRAH!!!

Trying to find the words....today I got tickets to Oprah's Lifeclass being filmed in Toronto, Canada in April. I honestly can't tell you what this means to me! I'm going to share this once in a lifetime experience with my beautiful sister Al!
Al and I have followed Oprah during her 25 years and now we are huge OWN followers, in particular Oprah's Masterclass and Lifeclass!
This lifeclass will include Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Iyanla Vanzant and Bishop T.D. Jakes!
Feeling nothing but blessings and GRATITUDE!
