Happy spring all! I finally got my pictures downloaded with my all new 'Egg-r-animals' to share with ya'll...

I started with a basic circle base, and ended up with nothing more than a simple egg shape; but the added features were the toppings on my littlest of Easter treats! A bunny, a duck and a big ol' bullfrog, that I designed especially for my sister; who recently had sinus surgery...just wanted to lift her spirits a little here! So out popped my little 'bullforg...benny'! Isn't he just so cute?! How could you resist the urge to fall in love with this mug?! He's bloated and beautiful...makes ya wanna take him home for dinner and make him some good ol' fashioned chicken soup for the soul, til' he's nursed back to perfect health!
They were a fun little project to experiment with...I've got a few more 'egg-r-animals' I'd like to add to this set yet...but for now, with Easter being over...I'm on to spring cleaning already!
And since I've got lots of lily cotton left in my bucket...I'm going to keep workin' on dishcloths, and swiffer shrugs! We gotta a new addition to our family this spring as well; a three-legged red merle healer we named Qunicy....but he's so hairy, we affectionately call him "Hairy Potter"! So, because of all the extra hair, my swiffer is working over-time these days! With the cost of everything going up, up, up...I thought it only fitting to cut some costs, and save the environment for yet another day! And so it goes...the 'hairy saga' begins; hehehe!
Stay tuned for scenes to come! Enjoy your day, like it's your matter the outcome! Blessings to all........

Spring has finally sprung!

Wow! What a winter, and then some! If it could of happened, it did! From Thanksgiving on, it seems, I literally had no control over any which part of my own life...period! My girlfirend and her twins moved in with us Thanksgiving weekend, and now here we are...4 months later and it's Easter, with no end in site! It's been rough for sure...2 sets of twins, under the age of 4 running around rampet in my house; it's like I have a mini-daycare situation going on here that I never signed up for! I never wanted to be the next 'Jon & Kate plus 8' saga! I just simply wanted to help out a friend in need.
What I got, was a lot more than what I bargained for, and that's no lie! by Christmas, going into the new year, I was put on medication for all the added stress, that soon developed into a 'heart-problem' due to a bad reaction to the drug. Unaware of all that was taking place, I honestly thought I was really..100%, losing my mind! Thank God for prayer, and the ongoing care of good friends, who pointed me in the right stay with the 'living', of course!
And so it was, that my overall creativity level came to a crashing hault! I was able to put a few 'one-of-kinds' together to share with yas....but not many! And to say the least, it has taken a tole on my loving family as well!
My twins turned 4 last Wednesday....what a moment in history for me! Four years ago, if asked...'where would you be in the next 4 years?', I would never have guessed all this! They're the brightest little lights in my life I could ever expect to see on a daily basis! they keep me 'up, down and all-around' every minute of my 'kid-i-licious' life; and I'm lovin' every minute of it!
When asked if I'd like to turn back time, I replied....'not on your life, or anyone elses', ever! And so it is, 'the life of one boy & one girl, til' death do us part'! And 'oh, how sweet it is'! My little obsession with food, and all that it has to offer us in the way of nutrition and fun, has just grown some more! I love making these cute little vegies and fruits to encourage my 'little ones' to eat 'good-treats', mixed with lots of love from the's where I love to be and grow with them....through the exploration that makes all things 'yummy' in our life!
With the warmer weather now, I am thinking cooking of all kinds....salads of each and every well as grilling out! Oh, how I love to eat the picnic table; and, as well, do my kids! It's just pure 'un-adulterated fun'....time, just escapes us when we're in the great outdoors, don't ya think? Free fun, that can't be obtained any other way, than to witness it first-hand...under a beautiful blanket of fluffy clouds, in a powder blue sky, full of sunkissed warmth on a perfect spring day! Easter, was a sure corwd pleaser at our house this year...full of balloons and presents galore...and food, everywhere! It was like our own little holiday, out-side of all the Easter marketing of candy and eggs...a very happy 'resurrection' celebration indeed!
So, here we are...the day after Easter....coming down from all it's glory, but not without a smile on our face, and love to share with all who seek it's 'spring has finally sprung' slendor! I think it's going to be a great April, full of wonderful showers of continuous gifts of many colors! It'll be sure to keep us coming back for more, especially in May....pretty flowers, tea with mom, and lots of new 'garden wonders'! What's not to love?! all expense paid trip to 'Disney's Wild Kingdom' would be great, right about now! Keep dreamin', kid-i-lious thoughts of fun and surprise await us all, if we 'hope for it' long enough!
Keep on shinin', and don't let life beat ya up to badly...'cause no matter what, 'you matter' to me & Jesus! Enjoy your 'kid-i-licious day'!
Happy Easter to all!
