Grateful On Thursday and Another Tease!

Very lucky me got a special gift in the mail this week from Margaret of WaterBlossoms Blog. I loved that Margaret told me that these particular beads were chosen by her for me especially saying: "the rich elegance of the beads reminded me of your love of religious tradition and the heritage you are passing along to your grands and sharing with all of us!"...
They are very very beautiful and I will treasure them, thanks so much. And then look at the intricate detail of her art in this wonderful heart art ATC. Peg, your art is so beautiful. I love your style. Be sure to visit her blog if you have not yet had the pleasure. You will enjoy it!
I borrowed this book from my daughter after starting it at her house while babysitting a few weeks ago. I couldn't put it down. I loved it. I recommend it as something quite different and oh so well written.
And here is another tease: a pile of pieces waiting to be sewn to the foundation of my NYP!
Grateful to be alive and well.
Grateful to have time to create.
Grateful that after tomorrow our taxes will be filed.
Grateful the Health Reform Bill passed and was signed by President Obama!
Grateful for wonderful supportive comments from blog friends.
Grateful for friends in non-virtual life too.
and Grateful to BOTH my children this week
for invites I'll tell more about in MAY!!!
