Finding what you bring

"Some people go through life trying to find out what the world holds for them only to find out too late that it is what they bring to the world that really counts." Anne of Green Gables

Having fun revisiting with Anne lately and thought we would share this quote for Sky Watch Friday, where 100s of bloggers find fabulous views of the sky to share with us all. It is amazing
what is on offer in the sky when you take the time to look.

Sneak peek of some work we are doing for All About Paper kit club.

In the spirit of bringing to the party Sharon Manning in WA is celebrating on her blog with a rak for a creative tool apron and a review of a new book on making fabric memory books.

And very exciting news for those of us who will not make it to Silver Bella this year the Joli Paquet blog is hosting a month long party in November holiday kits, ideas, recipes, tutorials and more to lift to your holiday mood.

Joli Paquet, is a gathering of creative artist friends Angelina’s Beautiful Cards, Little Pink Studio, Beth Quinn, Donna’s Red Roof, Lori from Faerie Window, just a few of the talented folks who will be making an appearance. They will be selling kits but there is a lot of freebies on offer too, how cool is that ! Click the link so you can bookmark now for their opening day.

Just For Today

"Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?" Anne of Green Gables

Lucy Maud Montgomery, may have written the words for many of us it is Anne who said them. As we have so many Anne fans and it is her centenary, this was a nice quote to add to Sky Watch Friday where 100s of bloggers surprise us with their view of the horizon, all different but interesting their own way.

Believe – Just For Today An itty bitty book made up on ATCs, Moos, inchies, recycled prayer cards, postage stamps, postcards, and things.

Kindred Spirits

“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It is splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” Anne of Green Gables

A lovely quote for Sky Watch Friday where you can find 100’s of bloggers from around the world sharing their view over the horizon. This year marks the centennial of Anne of Green Gables, Happy Birthday Anne.

Thanks for all your kind comments.
I appreciate that the photos are more eye catching if they are bigger and are set to click to enlarge. Most of my friends are on dial up and we have problems with larger photos. If you have any suggestions on how to post big impressive photos that do not take forever to down load, appreciate your advice.

One of the nicest things about blogging is the people you meet. All kinds of different folks from all over doing all kinds of interesting things that best of all they are so kind as to share. It really makes my day when some one is nice enough to nominate me for an award, and doubly so when there are two of them.

Thanks to Shirley of Reflections and Ethal of the Paper Quilter for these two awards.
Now I need to pay it forward by nominating the following

Jill of Bittersweet: Hand made soap and more delights
A Beach Cottage: A new find, this girl should be sponsored by Bunnings & Lincraft for all the home renovation tips she shares
Shabby In the City: Her Flea Market Fridays are a real find and so much more fun than ebay
Shannon of Paint Mine Pink: Prettiest little cupcakes that you can’t eat
Sandi At Whistlestop: Who has the yummiest recipes
A new friend Renae who is a talent scrap artist on the north coast of NSW she hosts a number of challenge blogs with different themes

Anytime we visit their blogs it is sure to be a great day, bet you will like them too.

Enjoying the seasons

“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own.” Charles Dickens

A bit like Sky Watch Friday, all different but special in their own way, link to see the hundreds of other posts from around the globe.

Photo from Scarborough Bluffs Canada on a very chilly winter’s day with lots of low cloud, mist, fog and frosty breezes.

A sampling of ATCs, Moos and cards classes we are teaching over the next few weeks.
