I liken my life to a crazy quilt. You never know what size or color the next block will be, what print or fabric it will be made from or which stitch, ribbon or charm it will be adorned with.

Welcome to my crazy-quilt life. Hopefully my blog is a reflection of that & me!

Enjoy your visit.

My Theme For 2011

Thankfulness & gratefulness, are two words that have been crossing my path of life of late. When something keeps gently popping up in front of me or hitting me smack in the face, I don't call it a coincidence. They come to me for a reason, so I have chosen "gratitude" as my personal theme for 2011.
I recently read somewhere (and wish I could remember where) that once this person began to give thanks for what she had, she finally found peace & happiness in her life. It makes perfect sense to me and seems so simple. We shall see.
I was given a journal for Christmas. It's a very sweet old book cover, spiral-bound with blank pages and a few of the old left in. This shall be my gratitude journal. I am excited about this theme and project for the new year.

I will leave you with this quote. Try to keep it in mind in the coming week.
“Saying thank you is more than good manners. It is good spirituality.” - Alfred Painter


  1. OK...let's hold each other up with our words for the year and our attitude! I worked on my blog last night and have chosen JOY. We should make a good pair, heh LaVonneski! Happy New Year!

  2. How true, LaVonne!I try to "count my blessings instead of sheep" (remember that old song?) every night before I go to sleep. We really do have so much to be thankful for.

    I for one am thankful for you and the fact that you're blogging again!

    Love, Angie

    ps-I'm knitting up your beautiful wool into mittens! I love it!
