Howdy!!  I've been very busy with work, watching my youngest grandson 4 days a week and working on things around the house.  Today is a time for me to step back, look at what is going on around me and to thank the good Lord for all the blessings in my life.  You ever have a time that an event happens and it literally slaps you in the face and you ask why???  Well that happened to me today and it made me really think how precious life is and how blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life.  Never waste time to do what you want to do in life.  I know we've all heard it before but we get so busy at times, we forget so it is a good reminder.
One of my newest crafts that I worked on is this cute "Welcome" sign.  I made it for my daughter and son-in-law as they love these types of things.  I think it turned out cute and it is now hanging outside their front door.

Here is a shot of my sweet little grandson, sporting one of the onsies I made for his "month" birthday's for his first year.  He's gotten so big, so fast but is such a sweet blessing.  Happy go lucky. I can't believe it's been 5 months already since we were blessed to have him come into our lives.

We've been very busy working in the yard also, and getting the flower beds all cleaned up and re-barked.  Is that a word??  lol  They look so nice now but there was a void in one of the beds in the back of the house, which our neighbor's stare at on a daily basis as it faces their front part of the house, so I decided to do something colorful, cute and quirky, all in one.  What do you think?  My first attempt, not bad :)

Well there is more, but that will have to wait until another day to show you that.  Back to pondering things and stopping to smell the roses a little on this beautiful sunshiny day here in the PNW.

Take care and happy crafting!
