Thank You Sharon!

I was lucky in that I won a blog giveaway from Sharon at http://myvintagestudio.blogspot.com/ And let me tell you, it could not have arrived on a better day! I had the absolute worst day at work in my 16-year career to date yesterday in which I seriously would have resigned if I didn't need my job. Today's a new day and with the arrival of my sweet package with extra goodies I feel much better. Thank You so much Sharon!!! :)

My Little Boy

I'm not sure what happened ~ this photo is NOT edited. I must have been moved a bit when I took the picture! But, I thought it was quite neat how it turned out in that my little boy's face seems to have come through clear, while the rest of the photo is blurred. Not even two weeks and he's going to turn 2 years old! Time really does fly!

*I Wish You Happiness*

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to make you happy. Always put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Happiness lies for those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past, you can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Brother Sister

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I have been busy with work during the day and my children and housework during the evenings, but have been getting outside after work most evenings to enjoy good brisk long walks. I love getting outside when the weather is nice, and I need it after working in front of a computer most of the day! Enjoy the images. :)

A Few Sweet Vintage Children Images

Have fun! I LOVE the first image especially, though love them all and can't wait to create some new altered art pieces with these images.

The week has been busy again, as are most. I'm finding it harder and harder to find time to work on my altered art with work, the kids, and now tending to my garden and also trying to get in some exercise. There's never ending housework with lots of that to do tonight as we've had after school activities the past three nights in a row. Hope everyone's enjoying their day :)
