savior faire

there is an artsyfartsy store near me
that I thought was an antique store
but it turned out to be more of a
all around coolish type store
when I met the owner
she was very sweet
& we got to talkin
I noticed she was using a plain
$store notebook
can't have that I thought!!!
went home & made her a notebook
I thought it is fair payment
for the several awesome ideas
I filed in the back of my head to steal :)
thanks Deborah talk soon

saturated canary

this is my third & last entry into the Saturated Canary dt
this is an awesome chance at a design team spot
that I felt the need to enter 3 times :))) lol

the blog also has a challenge this week with dies :)
you all know I love me some nesties
perfect for a vday card for my hubby
which goes along with a funny story...well not so funny
just before Doug & I were gonna get married
my bridesmaids took me to a psychic card reader
she did all their cards & I was last.
she announced to everyone
"that I was so lucky
I was soon to meet my night in shining armor
that he was the prince I had always hoped for..."
I quickly said "I met him 10 years ago
& I am getting married on Saturday"
she laughed and said " are you sure?"
no one said a word...
that was 15 years ago
I am 100% sure she was wrong :)

Wish me luck in the dt challenge :)

40 today

crazy but true

today I turn the big 4 0
I never, EVER thought I'd be this old
have this much
or be happy in any way

As a teen I had so much angst

I have regrets
& I do question why things happen sometimes
as everyone does I guess
but with some personal reflection
I believe I am as happy as I allow myself to be
as happy as I think I deserve

I have never been one to say I will be happy when...
or I can't wait for...

I guess I never believed good things happen for me

I know I am lucky in love
I love my family
my mom
my boys
my life is so full I can barely believe it
it scares me sometimes
looking back I am certainly satisfied with how my last 40 went
& I am looking forward to my next 40

I deserve to be happy
I believe
I am happy :)

I hope you are too
much love V'ness
