Hello friends...I am still here. I took a short hiatus from blogging this last week...I also had the chance to go on a two day retreat with a group of ladies at my church up to Big Bear & stayed in a cabin. We actually got to stay in this particular cabin three years ago. It was gorgeous up there.... Great food, wine and fellowship with a craft to end the time together. Here is the little bed I slept in. Isn't it the cutest?
Though it was supposed to be a retreat...I didn't sleep well away from home and felt like I needed a break from the break. Finally I am back to normal and back to our regular scheduled program. Whew. I missed y'all and hope to visit some of your blogs this week. Oh and hey. Do you like this cute craft above? It's a Thankful Tree. Easy as can be to make...Just a large jar, a bushel of twigs, raffia and colorful scrappy paper circles with a punched hole to hang on the branches. I brought home an extra one too...So come on by later this week for a Thankful Tree Giveaway. Just because I am thankful for all my readers.


  1. How adorable is that bedding ~ to bad that you didn't sleep to well on it. Welcome back!!!!

  2. good morning Mica. I'm glad you got to get away. Im the same way, I dont sleep well away from home. I always get a little homesick when its time to go to sleep!
    the little thankful tree is cute!
    do you write on the circles things that you are thankful for?
    I started putting halloween out last night... oh my goodness... I have too much.. it overwhelms me!
    ok.. not feeling so hot.. but have to go to work.
