February Club Artwork

I just realized I hadn't posted the Cherish & Imagine Club pages for February! Here they are.

The two pages above are the Cherish Club. We'll be using the new That's Amore My Reflections Level 2 kit and the new Love Always Journaling Spots.

These layouts are the Imagine Club. We're using the new Daydream My Reflections Level 2 kit and the Cottage Edge Anchors.
Hope you like them!

My Second Favorite Bird

The cardinal is my second favorite bird...the hummingbird being my absolute favorite bird. :) We've had some gorgeous cardinals here this year. So, I whipped out my new camera to see how well it works. So...what do you think?

I already have a Nikon D50, but when Kim and I went to Europe, she brought along her new Canon Powershot SX100. You should have seen the shots she got! This Canon has a 10X optical zoon, so the shots were as close up as mine were when I put my 300mm lens on my Nikon. When I got home, I decided I had to get one of these great cameras to carry in my purse, as I hate to carry my big Nikon in the car with me daily for fear something will happen to it, or that it might be stolen. So, I've had the Canon for awhile now and decided to give it a try the other day when I saw the cardinal in the tree. Both of these photos were taken from inside my house through the window and screen, and across the driveway and side yard!! Amazing! BTW, I ended up with the Powershot SX110. I ordered the SX100 from Amazon, but they were out and sent me the new SX110 for the same price! Needless to say, Amazon gets my vote for a great company!

Could it be Spring?

Probably not, but it sure feels like it today in upstate NY!! It's 53 degrees today and the sun is shining! I have laundry on the line and just washed the car...heaven knows it needed it after all the snow and salt we've had this winter. There's still a few feet of snow on the ground and piles higher than we can see over, but, for one day, it's spring!
I'm sure those of you who live in the warmer climates are thinking that I'm crazy. LOL!! But, you see, in upstate NY, 53 degrees is a heat wave this time of year....almost "break out the bikini time". LOL! anyone would ever see ME in a bikini. LOL!
So, off I go to bring the rest of the wood in. Remember those stacks I posted in September...well they're all gone and I have another load coming Sunday. Let's hope Sunday is as nice as today. Chances are tho, it won't be, as I think the weather guy said we'd be back to "seasonable" temps this weekend...20's. UGH! But, spring can't be too much farther away!

Happy Birthday from CTMH

This company is so special to me! From the big things to the little things, they are such a caring company. Last year while I had pneumonia I even received a get well card. Today's mail included a hand-made birthday card for my upcoming birthday. How cute is this card?!
