I love the expression that life isn't made up of a few big things, but rather a million little things.....or something like that. Isn't that the truth? Some things, like that first cup of coffee in the morning, my good morning hug and kisses from the kids, checking the mail after work for those fun little packages, the unexpected call from a friend......are the many things that make me smile. I have learned not to take one single thing for granted......constantly count your blessings.....because in the blink of an eye, life can change. : )
I have a Crafty Secret's
card to share with you today. I used the new Material Girl
set. It is such a fun vintage set! I used Basic Grey's new Kioshi paper and cut many frames using my Spellbinders to create a "negative" frame for the image. I was going for a "shadow box" effect. So I used dimensional foam squares between the layers. I added some black tulle to the dress form and a few pearls. Behind the dress form I airbrushed it using a Scalloped Spellbinders die and my airbrush system. I wrapped real thread around the "thread holder. "
See the purple thread on the "thread holder?" : )
Speaking of enjoying life's little moments, I have a couple of photos of Cort to share with you. We decided to set up the Wii in her bedroom and have her try her hand at bowling. Welllllll...........let me just tell you.........she LOVED it!!! She got so excited to see the pins fall down. She quickly learned where the "A" button was, but did need help releasing the "B" button. (Which is why her daddy was helping her here!) She played 3 games! Brian and I were so excited to see her
excited to play! With her physical limitations, the fact that she was sitting on a regular kitchen chair, holding her body up, her head up, using the controller, and pushing the buttons......was amazing! She got 45 minutes of therapy without really knowing it! There are so few things Cortney really enjoys.......so this was heartwarming.......and yes........brought her mama, (and I think her daddy a little bit too), to tears........ : )
Thank you for letting me share an ordinary, life moment with you........... : )
Have a wonderful Monday!!!!
