This week...


another Making Memories vintage necklace. My kids dance teachers got necklaces for gifts this year. I wish I were them. Seriously, it's hard to give them away. I am still spring cleaning. This morning my carpets are being cleaned so we will be heading out the door for a while. I love ticking stuff of my list before we leave for Walt Disney world Orlando in exactly One week. I dont know who is more excited. we will be visiting WDW for 10 days. We have been counting sleeps for 156 days. And now there are only 6 days and 9 hours left. We are going with our best friends from South Africa and their 4 kids.




I am feeling so generous today. Leave me a comment and you can win some Making Memories vintage groove stuff. Then you can make your own necklace. yum. I will mail it out before we leave.

Oh, just before I say good bye... i have to show you this from the pottery barn. It made my knees weak: The chandelier is called the Edison chandelier. Um. swoon. Faint.


Let me add some good news today: God doesn't need our permission to love us; he loves us anyway! We can love Him because He loved us first. You do not have to become a better person before He will love you more. Just as you are. No matter what. He loves us with no strings attached. He love us because He is love. He cannot HELP but love. His love comes from a source within Himself... He doesn't have any external factors that influences his love. wow.
Love and a kiss

I think it is great fun to see photos of your house, your family and the things you make. You could draw some of the shapes from the necklaces you love. They could make fun pngs. Have a grand trip!

just a hint about WWW....go to the magic kingdom really early on at least one day. If the park opens for guests at 900 get there by 815....trust me. about 20 minutes before they open the park the train pulls into the station with mickey and lots of dancers and they sing and dance and it makes you so excited to be there....Nemo show at animal kingdom is a must....mickey philharmonic show at the Magic kingdom is a must and fastasia show at hollywood studios a must....another one lion king.....At animal kingdom entrance when they first open there are lots of people who work there with extra special things....walk slow, be happy and they will pick you to get extra special seats for a show....or no waiting in line tickets or something like that. it is so worth it. Talk to people...be nice and meet people from every country. They caught us making room for others on the sidewalk for the parade and gave our girls special pins that you cant even buy. Have fun and love your jewelry....

Have fun at Disney. If you can get reservations for The Crystal Palace in the Magic Kingdom early you can get into the park before it gets crowded too. Great time for photos of the castle.
