Spring, Summer and Mother's Day Graphics

Hello all you fun people,

Spring is just bursting out all over here in the desert southwest and I'm lovin' it!  I've been very busy, and I have lot's to tell you all, but I'll share the bulk of the news this weekend.  I'm getting ready for my "upcycled" light bulb doll class on the 27th, and I'm so excited as Tammy  (of "Tammy's in Love") is in town and Sandy and I shall be shopping for the next two days with her and her husband.  I just love meeting blog friends!

Holly, over at "Cotton Pickin Fun" sent me this freakin adorable lamb shaker for Easter.......I just about died when I opened the box.......I can't believe how blessed I am!  She also made me a banner to add to my collection, but I haven't taken pictures of it yet.  These images are from her blog.

Lots and lots goin' on this month, and I'll try to keep you all posted.  My husband has been working for the Department of Economic Security for the past six months on a contract.  Last week he was offered a permanent position as their Senior Security Analyst Manager, and his first permanent day is April 15th......wahoo, now we'll have some decent income and insurance again!!!!

Please keep our dear friend E (Elizabeth of "Creative Breathing") in your prayers this Friday.  She's undergoing some knee surgery, and although it's outpatient and she should be back to normal in a week or so.........we all know what a crafting fiend she is and I'm sure she'll be back to crafting sooner than that, as she just can't stay still.............kind of like me........constant motion!

Here are some mostly new graphics for you, with only a couple of oldies.  Enjoy and I'll be back this weekend with further news.

God Bless and lots of hugs,

Thank you for some great images. You are SO kind (and industrious)to post them all cleaned up. Congrats to your husband on the new FT position.
And the lamb shaker - very envious!

Wow! That's great news about your husband's job! I'm sure he feels like a great load has been lifted off his shoulders after such a long wait! You too! Thanks for the cute springy images! We are hopeful that this snow will melt before the 4th of July so in the meantime.... the images are a breath of spring air!

Meri, That's just the BEST news ever about your DH's job! YEAH.... Now breath a big sigh of relief!
That little lamb shaker is just the cutest thing ever. I bet you just about fell over when you opened it!

P.S. I got those Mini crowns at Retro Cafe art. I think their under $2 for Four!!!
