At least it doesn't feel fair. This one's in the Ain't It the Truth category.

This is just too cute! Find it in the State of Mind collection.

I don't know about you, but I love these Decorative Motifs.


  • I've spent the past week or so re-working the instructions for several of the Mini Stockings on the site, so I don't have a project as such for this week.

  • Scampers isn't too happy this week because we have visitors, including Buster! Although he's actually pretty good with cats, he does like to chase the ones who run away, and Scampers isn't too sure of himself yet. (Moggie just strolls through as though nothing is amiss). I'm sure that if they were together for longer they would acclimatize but for now Scampers is making himself scarce.
  • I can't wait til my IT-girl sister-in-law arrives later in April. I'm hoping she can figure out what the issue is with my pen and tablet -- I'm still unable to do much digitizing and it's still a major chore to do the updates or even deal with e-mail.  It has been very frustrating these past few weeks and my local tech was unable to find a solution.
  • I bought my first Betty Crocker cookbook back in the 1980s, and liked the recipes so much that  I've collected several more of their books over the years, including this one. Although I don't purchase or use commercial mixes,  I do make these recipes with my own homemade biscuit mix.  If you'd like to do the same, here's an  on-line recipe to try. It differs very slightly from the vintage version I use, but like mine it can be substituted for Bisquick in any of the recipes from the book or on line at the Bisquick recipe site.  Just for starters, try the Breakfast Bake and the Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie -- yummy.
  • We've had house guests all week -- my best friend since I was 8 years old and her hubby . . . and their dog!  What a pleasure it is to see them and have a chance to visit! But it means I haven't had much chance to do any projects or digitizing.
  • Our friends spent a very happy year in New Zealand when they were in their 20s, and are hoping to return for a visit this fall. This ornament shows the area where they lived during their original stay. It's absolutely gorgeous!
  • Sofka wrote to tell me about the beautiful accessories she made for her Featherweight  using my designs. They are just gorgeous!  Find some more inspiration in other client projects by clicking here.
