The saying, "When it rains, it pours," is my reality right now since surprises are being poured out from every direction! Foremost, I have received additional recognition: the "You Make My Day" award; presented by DebraK at the Bunnies' Bungalow. It is affirming to know that I am not talking to myself; but that there are others on the same page with me! Thank-you, DebraK. I am honored!

I have decided to honor 2 individuals that I have not previously recognized. Both have prayed for and encouraged me; giving me many reasons to smile. The recipients are:
  1. Sheila of Gim'Me Memories
  2. Mary Isabella of Daisy Bouquet
Today, our weather in Southern California is desert-like and windy. My 3 sets of wind chimes are consorting melodiously with one another.

My Strawberry Fold Pouch dangling from pink jasmine.

Just in case our weather has forgotten that it's spring, I've created one of my Strawberry Fold Pouches. I use these pouches for gift presentations. This particular pouch contains a Davidson teabag, a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square, and a Marie Callender gift card. It's folded with double sided, satin sheen pink paper; threaded with a decorative ribbon handle; and adorned with Martha Stewart floral stickers. These pouches make great party favors as well.
