My New Banner

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...""

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."

Congratulations on being the winner of that adorable banner. I love the little button cherries. I like where you have hung it among all of the other "smile bringers." It was fun to get a glimpse of where you make your fabulous creations. How nice that you can be amongst family members as you create.

Your crafting corner looks so inviting and fun. Mine is a mess - can I come play in yours? =) What a nice blessing to receive from 'Cherries' - she's a talented woman.

Judy, I am the worst craft that ever was. I have bookoos of projects that are not finished. I have a bad habit of starting things and not always finishing. I have a nice studio room upstairs, but I do all my creating on my kitchen table. I like to be near the downstairs windows and be in and out. That will be ending soon since cold weather is coming. A very nice gift you have there.

well if that doesnt make me want to sit and do crafts all afternoon, not much else will. Thanks for all your fun posts Aunt Judy! Always something I look forward to reading each day. So fun to see you the other night, if only for a little bit and from the other end of the table! Love you

Very cute! I love your craft area, it's adorable.

I tried to visit that link and all I saw was a page from 2005. Do you have a more current link? Thank you!

Connie said... the new blog look and congrats on your new banner and other goodies. Your craft corner is so neat and I love the plate from your parents home. It was fun catching up with you tonight. Have a good weekend.

Congratulations on your pretty winnings!

You have a very nice craft area --it's always nice to do work in the company of family and be able to watch TV and converse while crafting.

I have a scrapbooking area in my basement where my husband has his office, so we chat all evening :-)
