Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Consider yourself invited to the 2013 Ultimate Blog Party happening April 5th through 12th hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom!

This is the beach that you see adorning my spot here on the internet!
Moonstone Beach, Rhode Island. 
Welcome Old Friends and New!

Would you like a cocktail, mock-tail or cup of steamy hot brew?
Either way, make yourself at home…and if I forget to give you that drink, I hope you will feel comfortable enough to help yourself. Because friend, that is how it really is when you visit my home!  I get so busy talking I forget to get our beverages.
So don’t be shy!


Make yourself at home, and be sure and sign my guestbook by leaving a comment!


Well, let’s see…here’s a few things to get the party started:
I like to live as a local tourist and I especially enjoy living along the beautiful coast of scenic Rhode Island! I usually try to get out and capture the beauty right here in our little state, then share it here in my bloggy space.

I began blogging in May of 2011, and am blessed by the unanticipated journey and unexpected surprises that have come out of it.

Last year was the first year I participated in the Ultimate Blog Party  and I really enjoyed connecting with fellow bloggers and making some new friends!

Everything else you want to know about me- or not know is all over this blog!


The family: We are a silly threesome. 



Enough about me- your turn, will you be joining in, linking and hopping along with us?


Leave a link and I will be sure to visit!

My Current Journal and Altered Book Experiment (RJD April)

I am feeling just brave and crazy enough to share from my current journal this month. OK, it’s because I actually am so busy this month, I have no time to get into my journal closet and start walking down memory lane! Spring definitely seems to increase the excessive busy-ness! 
Today I am sharing from my little Piccadilly  journal which was given to me by my sweet friend, Lauree. It happens to be my favorite color! I am enjoying the size and make of this journal. It is one I have not used before but would choose to use in the future. 
I hope you can appreciate the irony of this particular journal share as well as the Altered Book pages I am sharing…hmm.

Does anyone need to CHILLAX with me?

Lord, today a new day stretches before me. Already I sense it pressing in around me. I feel pressures and burdens that are not my own-it makes me edgy…I feel like I can’t live up to it, keep up with it.

Lord, release me from these perceived burdens. Lighten my load. You tell me I can come to you with my burden and exchange it for your yoke, my heavy burdens traded for rest and teaching by you…You say your yoke is easy, your burden is light…
How is that, Lord?
I sense it, I feel it.
But then I find my mouth betrays my heart.

Lord, I need to re-boot!
I need a stay-cation!

I need your rest, your gentleness, your peace for today.

Let today bloom slowly as a flower-full of beauty, joy from above and heavenly aroma- a delight to all.
Yes, Lord, make it so!

No kidding moment: I keep scissors and glue stick in my pocketbook for journaling on the go! My daughter’s favorite place for spinach pie and the front of Sunday’s church bulletin scrapped while we wait for lunch and giggle. 

I have been wanting to try altering a book for awhile and I have two going.
This one I found in Maine at a cool little garage bookstore.Seriously I have no idea what I am doing, but just winging it as I go. I am following a number of Altered Book artists so I just look and am picking up a bit. Mostly it’s just creative fun! 

Well I hope you are enjoying being creative in your journal with your words or however you find your creativity flowing through you!


Please join us at our Random Journal Day Link up.
Link goes live at 12 AM Friday! 
It is the one year anniversary of RJD Day and I will be having a journal giveaway to celebrate!
