Organize this Mess.....we look at our creative space and just wonder where we put that thing that we had just used two weeks ago, past Tuesday, of the 3rd of the month. We know that feeling oh soooooo well!!!! I pride myself in my organized "clutter"! Wouldn't it be wonderful to know where everything is and that there is a place for everything and everything in its place?? That's what this hop is hoping to do! Trying to give helpful hints on storage, clever ways to keep things and just organize the mess!!!!!! There is a very creative, cluttered group to help us along this path.  We hope you can find the time to organize and hop along with us while we "de-clutter"!!!! Of course there will be some blog candy to add to "your" organized clutter if you comment along the way and don't miss a single blog! If you just happened to be visiting me today, I am ever so glad, but don't want you to miss an organized stop.  So please start at the beginnin…

Arbor Day Blog Hop

I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in Summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. ...Alfred Joyce Kilmar
In the News: Arbor Day celebrated in Clarksville, 'Tree City USA' as quoted in their local paper "I have a saying that trees are one of our utilities, and the reason I say that is because they help clean the air, they help control rainwater runoff, they convert carbon dioxide into oxygen," he said. "What we really have when we have a line of trees around the city is a utility that provides good things for the population without having any cost associated with it."
Today, we are celebrating the wonderment of trees and we welcome you in our celebration. If you are j…

Enjoy the moments that make you happy!

This is one of my favorite cards that I submitted to Paper Crafts magazine's Stamping Royalty contest but sadly, I didn't win. That's okay because all of the non- winning entries.....all 1,586 of them... were donated to Operation Write Home. This organization sends cards to our awesome military men and women so they can keep in touch with friends and family. What a wonderful idea!
