The flowers have gone..

..so have the leaves, It so dry and gloomy out here in Minneapolis, the days are getting shorter and darker!
Sometimes I wonder how weather affects my mood so much!
Looks like everything around has halted - and that means time for a break, vacation or doing something new!

One thing that I am doing to keep my spirits high and the energy flowing is learning to swim - I was damn scared when I entered the pool the first time but now I have kind of started loving it.

A sad card reflecting my sad mood over the past week - lol :D
This looks so damn neat!

Smiles all the way ~

Long Long weekend..

It was a long long weekend in US. It was awesome fun with friends - shopping and partying. And now those terrible Monday blues, Its going to be hard to get back to the normal routine!

I made this for a customer who wanted a 11x14 collage for her dad's birthday. 
Lil bit of quilling and a lot of patience!
I am glad it came out nice :)

Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend!

Sometimes Thank You....

.... doesn't seem quite enough!

I think a lifetime is just not enough to give back what Moms do for us!

The lesson my mom has always given me that has always helped me sail smoothly through some most difficult situations!
Your journey will never be smooth and beautiful - you will find some beautiful flowers on the way and you will also find heaps of garbage! Take time to smell the flowers and walk away quick when you come across the garbage.

Another card I made recently that I had troubles parting with!
I so much love the colour combination and the quilled flowers! I used my Silhouette to cut out the sentiment.
And the card looks even more awesome in real!

Smiles all the way ~
