My "To Do" List is growing!!! Trying to fit everything I want to accomplish in a day is becoming pretty tricky. Laundry, clean house, yard work, cook dinner (which I must admit have been pretty sorry lately), watch Drew, create, write blog posts, read favorite blogs....sometimes there is just not enough time in the day. Some things just don't get done. Lately I have become behind in visiting my favorite blogs and leaving comments for friends letting them know how much I enjoy spending time with them. This afternoon Drew is napping so I thought it would be a great time to catch up and share a few more craft fair projects that I have been working on. This week's project has been magnet cards---Little pockets with sweet die cut images, cut with my Cricut, that I have turned into magnets.
Guess HOO Loves You
OWL always Love You
I could not find the perfect paper to go with these adorable owls, so I decided to use fabric. Using a bit of "Wonder Under", I ironed it to the fabric and then onto a piece of cardstock. Oh the possibilities.....
Well I hear a certain little boy stirring in his crib---time for me to go--- Oh I only got to visit a few friends--I will have to finish up after dinner.
About Dandelion Wishes--Why a Dandelion you ask???
As I was contemplating starting my blog and opening my etsy shop, many thoughts swam in my head. What would I write about, what would I sell and what in the world would I call my blog and shop? Oh I had a list of names--which one should I choose? I finally decided on Dandelion Wishes. Why that name you ask? Why a dandelion--they are such a nuisance poking their little yellow heads right out into the beautiful green grass. Then there are those little white seed parachutes floating over my lawn just looking for a place to land and grow more little yellow heads in my beautiful grass. If I would have stopped at that thought I never would have choosen the dandelion to represent my blog. Who want's to be known as a nuisance?? Not me. As I stopped and really looked at the little yellow flower, I discovered that it is really quite beautiful. With it's many petals and it's happy yellow color I found it to be really very cheery. And then the thought struck me. There are many things that come into our lives that at first we consider a nuisance. But if we really stop to think about them, often they can become a thing of beauty--teaching lessons and helping us to grow and mature in our lives. I couldn't think of a better name for my blog and shop. It helps to remind me to stop and see the beauty in all situations, to ask myself what lesson I am to be learning, and how does this situation help me to grow into a better person. I wish that for all of you my friends as well. Thank you for visiting Dandelion Wishes. I hope you enjoy your stay.
