Blessing for Easter

How did things get so mixed up about Easter? Some of us are having our celebrations this weekend and there are some not doing it until next weekend.   Since it relates to Passover which I think starts tonight shouldn’t that be the given time. After all….it was at Passover everything we as Christians keep in our heart to remember the grace of our Lord.,

Eggs don’t roll here like they did when the kids were little. There will be church services,family meals and of course the Bunny will leave more candy. Good excuse to grab a chocolate egg which none of us need. I did come up with several card designs for family members and one for a dear friend having health problems but don’t think I made a picture of that one. Let’s see…now where are those photos?

Don’t laugh…it did take me a few minutes to find them. Most will be hand delivered . As much fun as I am having doing these flowers by Susan’s Garden they are crazy to mail.  I have another batch ready to go to Treelady.  Anyone in Central Mississippi really should visit her and see all of the beautiful plants. It is a very relaxing place to visit and you can grab a hand-made paper crafted flower too.

Until next time….Have a blessed Easter Weekend…Remember it isn’t about the Bunny and sing praises for it is the Lords day. REJOICE for He Lives!

The Cold-Case for the Resurrection | J. Warner Wallace

With Easter next weekend this is a really good time to listen to this.

Reasoned Cases For Christ

If you’ve never taken the time to check into the evidence for the Resurrection of Jesus Christ or looked into who Jesus is, please consider looking at and listening to what Jim Warner Wallace has to say. Yes, this is the same J Warner Wallace that Keith Morrison from Dateline talks about. Jim was a cold-case homicide detective, but is now an adjunct professor of apologetics at Biola University. Give him an honest shot.

WIP; Dead Trees;Mini Mouse and more

DSCN2127Seems like a round every corner this week there was something to direct my attention in another direction. One of my blog friends has a WIP  blog day. ( that is work-in- progress) this seemed to be a good indication maybe my blog should participate. I need all the direction someone can muster up. So ….after pictures ,which I have often forgotten to take, I was well on my way. Then the first redirection took place.


My son came to remove three large pine trees that had given up .That is him in the bucket at the top after felling the very top. Then everything was going well until he needed to move the truck. Soft dirt…mud and one very stuck big truck. Story ended well. After a lot of ” country folk thinking’ we and yes I said we  managed to get her moving again. Do you know what a wrecker would have cost? Well…we weren’t going there. Now there are two large deep holes in my yard but the truck is back in service.  We will deal with the holes another day.

Back with the WIP. There has been progress there too. It isn’t finished just yet. Waiting for Nuvo Drops to dry but here you can see there has been a change. The first photo is the die cuts ready for color and the second photo ,in the top , is the almost finished card. You can see the Nuvo Drops drying on the right. Mini Mouse you see…yes that is the next


detour of the week. There is a second birthday coming up and this grandma had no idea what to do for this sweet grand-daughter . As luck would have it, and I really don’t believe in luck as such ,there on email this morning was a new idea for a tunnel book. Now I did one for Little Cobs at Christmas ,you can check archives for that, and didn’t even think about doing it again but BINGO! Just in time to save this grand from looking pretty piteful at the Mini Mouse party. Now I know I could just go to the store and buy a gift but I hope a handmade gift from this gran will someday make them proud to say” My Bebe made this just for me”. Later when it is finished I’ll let you in on the final project. I hope it turns out like I think it will, but you never know.

I you don’t know about the few remaining hours at Tom’s  2500 party day go check it out.

You can find him at BeyondtheSphere or tlmerriman.wordpress,com  I’m not sure how to link his blog but you are smart and can find it.

Until these projects are finished do have a good rest of the weekend and new week.  Remember…This is the Lord’s day…REJOICE!   ps. it is also a week until Easter…the real Lord’s day and I for one am so very thankful what what He did for me.

Sunday Storms

So far today we have only had rain. Having not checked the rain gauge yet I’m not sure how much but the ground is still soaked from the last days of showers. Several days . Earlier this week there has been over 3 inches in the little glass measuring tube. They are calling for more tonight and tomorrow with some being on the serious side. I’m not afraid of storms but do hold a healthy dislike for them especially those that come in the night. Kinda hard to see what is coming and we can’t depend on electric communication sometimes. The NOAA weather radio does get a workout in our Spring storms. And the alarm sound going off sends Babe into the frenzy mode.

Earlier I did take a picture or two of my garden problems.The first is weed MSU identifies as Dock.I don’t think there is a good use for it although the cows used to enjoy me throwing them a pile over the fence . Where it all comes from is a mystery because hundreds of little plants have been dug up and thrown away. The second is the neverending ant. I hate using toxic products but sometimes there is no choice and they still move over to another place only to require more toxic contamination.

The good news is there have been blossoms on the fruit trees and quince bush which the bees just love. No fruit but I keep the trees for the bees. They are eager to find what they can this early.

I’ll be back with more crafty expression soon.( Easter cards and a new batch for Treelady Nursery.)

Ya’ll take care and remember… This is the Lords day…Rejoice!

Come again soon and please leave a comment so I know you have been here. Company is always welcome.

Different Perspectives — Reasoned Cases for Christ

The story of A Daffodil; a Poem; Happy un-Birthday Wishes; and a Handmade Card . . . — The Cobweborium Emporium

Back in January of this year, we had a smattering of snow here where I live in the South of England. Now snow in January isn’t anything unusual – for we are in the winter months and winter can bring forth all sorts of weather – snow being one of them. But what made the […]

By Dr. Perry, PhD “I am the greatest obstacle to my greatest dreams.” ~Craig D. Lounsbrough The subconscious mind is like an overgrown hedge maze. We enter it thinking we can quickly get through to the other side only to realize we are lost somewhere in the middle. How often do you set out to […]

Soulful Sunday

Ali,over at has a new meme . Now I’m not sure what a meme is but this what she says…

“I am wondering if there is room for a Sunday meme, open to non-gardener bloggers too?  I’m thinking ‘Soulful Sunday’.  This would be anything that makes you feel emotional, warm and fuzzy, grateful, inspired, appreciative of the world around us?  But also if you feel you need a little connection with positivity, a way of reaching out to others and feeling reassured that we are all part of the same universe, and that the overwhelming urge in this world is to share and understand one another, to show compassion and kindness.”

Well I do . .. Way back I was blessed to come across a wonderful blogger that I have never met in person and may never. But about that time my husband had a fatal heart attack and my world turned upside down. My new friend , and yes she is a dear friend, became my rock to lean on. Now a year ,almost two years later, I know I can depend on her to be there to encourage me and scold me when needed. You should also know she is probably much younger than I am but I love her like a sister,daughter, mother or neighbor and every thing  else between. She is a very talented artist and a grandmother so we have that in common, the grand -mother part any way. A few weeks ago she posted about finding a daffodil in the cold of UK and what a surprise it was. Well as fate will sometimes work another dear blog friend was inspired to write a poem about the daffodil. This other friend has become a special person in my life too so I decided to create  a special card for the two of them and here it is.


I already had this paper napkin with the tulips and daffodils so just adding the paper 3D daffodils from Elizabethcraftdesigns was a no brainer. I have been learning to craft these paper flowers from dies that Susan Tierney Cockburn designs. They are so unique and so much fun.

Treasure you special people. They come in when least expected and are a gift from our Father in Heaven. I haven’t checked with these two friends on this post but I am pretty sure they won’t mind my sharing how very special they are to me.

You might want to check out themindfulgardnerblog and see what some others are thankful for. In the meantime…Remember…This is the Lord’s day…Rejoice!

Thank you for spending time with me and do come again and leave a comment so I will know you payed a visit.
