Moving to New Blog!

Hi Everyone-
I have had this prayer blog for 6 months. As a result, I have spent more time blogging and less time for spirituality. I have decided to have everyone just come over to my Whimsical Musings blog where I will be blogging...

I look forward to seeing you on my Whimsical Musings blog!!! (Just click the name and you will be directed there.)

Special Friends

Hi Everyone--
I hope you are enjoying "Friends" week here on my blog.
I'd like to introduce you to my friend Kathy from
Creative Home Expressions!

Kathy does interior design and has a
flair for the awesome!

How beautiful is this little nook in her house?
I love it!

And Sissie at Sissie's Shabby Cottage makes the
beautiful things! Including these pillows!

Her blog is gorgeous and she owns her own store too!!

My friend Tammy is a total world traveler!!! I'm
sure that many of you know and love her...
but, I wanted to feature her so you could
visit her blog.

Just look at her here--Isn't this amazing?
Tammy is at T's Daily Treasures and she's
so fun to know!!

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for visiting my blog and to these 3 friends for making 2010 so fun!

This is a fun week for me because I've been able to introduce you to some people who are very inspirational to me and I hope they will be to you too!!!


Smiles Galore!!

Who of us can't relate to the friendship of Lucy and Ethel? Remember all the shenanigans they got into? Well, as I continue "Friends" week to introduce you to some people, it would not be complete without my friends Donna and Linda.

I opened an Etsy store in October--Did I mention that I didn't have a clue what I was doing? Well, Donna and Linda were unbelievable with my 10 thousand questions and emails a day asking, "How on earth do I list this stuff?"

Donna made my "drama" much more fun as we have laughed our way through it all!!! She has been my anchor and confidante as I jumped in "feet first" into this new enterprise.

I talked to Linda non-stop who is the perfect mix of calm and confidence--She is my idol! And no matter what I asked, she walked me through everything...totally amazing!

And the best part? These are spirit-filled women with wisdom and joy...I value them greatly as I do ALL of you.

But, when I saw this picture of Lucy and Ethel, I thought of my antics and how I was like a proverbial "Lucy" asking these awesome friends for advice all along the way as I "set up shop" on a wing and a prayer.

That was only the beginning of friendships that were forged and I have to admit, I'm much more interested in how our lives are going, what we're busy doing, and the ins and outs of every day life. The fun and laughter and sharing is much more important to me!

Thank you, you guys--love and hugs to you both!

And thank you to everyone who is visiting and reading this...Also, if you'd like to read about my
birthday bash, please click here.
