creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

I love Mother’s Day.

I love my Mom!

I love my mother-in-law!

I love my kids and being a mom!

I adored my grandmothers!

I love how my business gets a bit of a shot in the arm…

Here are just a few of the charms I’ve done this week.

I have two cousins who had new grand.babies about 3 weeks ago.  This charm is for the daughter of one of those cousins.  This photo was taken the first time she held her daughter.  Her sweet little girl, Olivia, was born at about 26 weeks and because of her strong ‘Carpenter’ blood, she is holding her own and getting stronger every day.

I love both of these pictures.  First time grandparents.

speaking of Carpenter blood – this is my Grandpa Carpenter…he would have been so proud of these two new great great granddaughters – he dearly loved his kids!

..and speaking of Mother’s Day…you must go check out Amber’s blog{s} – she is doing an amazing Mother’s Day project all week long.

and I have another charm being given away by Bill’s Berry Farm…the blueberries must be in bloom!  Slip over there and leave a comment so that you can be entered in to win!

  3. My mom lives in Grandview. I am hoping to visit Bills Berry farm in July, to pick berries. I was so excited to discover their location this morning!
    I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to go to the Farm’s Chick show. Isn’t it graduation weekend?
    We are having realtors from the area for a house tour on May 13th. Our house will be in tip top shape next week, if you want to stop by.
