Yesterday, in the mail, I received my first hand crafted banner from a very talented blogging friend. Her blog is "cherry'sjubilee" and her artwork and creativity are amazing. I have visited her blog many times, always admiring what she does. She had a giveaway, and lucky me, I won this beautifully done "cherries" banner. I hung it on the bulletin board in the craft area of my home. It looks so nice hanging there, along with other special gifts I have received, including;
a perfectly photographed bookmark from Shelley at "buildingalogcabin"blog
a hand painted bookmark from "charmingdesigns" blog
a handmade card sent to me from my friend, Heidi
another handmade card sent to me from my friend, Judy.
and pictures of my family.
As you can see, there are many lovely touches added to this banner. I have seen many of the banners she has created, and I do feel honored to display one on my bulletin board. You may want to pay a visit to her artistic blog..."cherriesjubilee.blogspot.com/"
My craft area is a small section of a room in my house. The rest of the room is part play area for the grandchildren, part library, and part relaxing recliner where my husband enjoys watching his sport events. This room is one of the most used rooms in our home.
I created this craft area two months ago. I love sitting at this desk and working, especially if there are some good football games being played on television.
This old plate was one my parents had hanging in their basement many years ago. I always liked it, and I am thankful to have it for my wall, along with a wooden reminder to me, to always..."count my blessings."
