Delight & Happiness

Over the weekend I had TWO, 2!! Make-Me-Grin-BIG-And-Call-Me-Cheesy events
First, I found this beauty on Craigslist {I will tell more of Her story another day} I have always wanted a treadle. Mr. Coffee was working in the area of her former home, went and bought her and loaded her up and brought her home… to ME!!… SQUEEEL!!

Second, a random fortune from my PeiWei meal {SuperSize Me}

How Cool and True is that?? I know!!!
P.S. – Since I am easily bored sidetracked like to mix things up design-wise, I have once again changed my blog header and color scheme. Watcha Y’all think??

Tomorrow I will be giving the final details and “rules” for the Quilt Le Tour de France giveaway. The Tour ends one week from today. I will have the drawing on Monday, July 26th. Here is something I want to share:
I came across this quote today. I love it

“Today, more than ever, the crafts have the mission to reconnect the human being to the Earth and her substances,
bring healing to the senses and soul,
and foster the creative capacities of the human being” – Renate Hiller

Surely We Can Change


And the problem is this
We were bought with a kiss
But the cheek still turned
Even when it wasn’t hit

And I don’t know
What to do with a love like that
And I don’t know
How to be a love like that

When all the love in the world
Is right here among us
And hatred too
And so we must choose
What our hands will do

Where there is pain
Let there be grace
Where there is suffering
Bring serenity
For those afraid
Help them be brave
Where there is misery
Bring expectancy
And surely we can change
Surely we can change

And the problem it seems
Is with you and me
Not the Love who came
To repair everything

Where there is pain
Let us bring grace
Where there is suffering
Bring serenity
For those afraid
Let us be brave
Where there is misery
Let us bring them relief
And surely we can change
Surely we can change
Oh surely we can change

Oh, the world’s about to change
The whole world’s about to change

Mama's Got a Fake I.D.

Do we as mothers have an identity crisis? Does motherhood give risk to losing who YOU are? YOUR passions? YOUR interests and creativity?
Don’t get me wrong. I love being a mom. In fact I am one of the Biggest Mothas around and I’m not just trashin’ on my weight. I think raising 9 kids gives me some credibility when I say find out who YOU are and nurture what you find. Your kids will thank you. Your mate will thank you.
I hope to be able to give a review of this book soon. The title intrigues me.
