Almost a week....

....since my last post. I feel as if I have lost track of time between being sick and planning/preparing Easter.

Being new to the world of blogging I am finding it an interesting forum.. as I go through my days, thinking of ideas to share, I feel a kindred spirit with all of you who take the time to read my post and especially those of you who leave comments.

I don't want to bore you with mundane commentary on my life but, I do want to share the experiences that happen to me. I have so many creative ideas floating around in my head, that I find it hard to remember to slow down and actually document them in picture format.

So, for tonight, I want to share with you the best news of the weekend. I had my first sale generated by my Internet presence. A friend that I know in town happened to see my blog and the arrangements that I had posted. She contacted me through Facebook and asked if one was still available...

I want to thank Ann so much for purchasing two of my arrangements....although friends and neighbors have purchased many arrangements and even contracted me to decorate for them, this sale was driven by both my blog and facebook.

It was a great lift to know someone else out there liked what they saw, enough to contact me and stop by my home. It may seem small but to me it was a great feat.

The Easter Eve dinner was a success with most of the food being consumed and very few leftovers to be had. The camaraderie of both families is amazing and it makes your heart feel as if you have done something good when you bring people together.

I feel as if I haven't devoted enough time to sharing some of my thrifty decorating ideas. I promise I will share one with you tomorrow as the kids are off to school.

Just let me give you a sneak peak....I love 3M supplies. Stay with me, you will love this one.

Thanks again everyone and have a great evening!
