Illustration Friday Topic: - Immovable / HB2U

Bless Our New Home,
Let Our Hearts be Immovable!

After moving 2 times in the past 5 months, I would say this week's IF topic: Immovable, tingles our heartstrings and our funny bones.  Its been a very crazy 2010 thus far, but one thing that I have learned from all the chaos is that no matter where we roam our true friendships will follow us along our journey.  Thanks to all my great friends who have continued to keep in touch - your friendships are priceless.  xoxo - Kim

Wishing A Very Happy Birthday to 
My God Daughter Kate.  9 Years!!!!

Team Up Thursday: Bliss

As I mentioned in my previous post, I've been slacking on my blog.  But I found a little inspiration called Team Up Thursday

Team-Up Thursday is a collaborative project. Each week, partners take a photograph separately using a theme, then create a diptych with these photos.  My good friend, Krista Brock, The Accidental Artist and I have paired up to participate and we are very excited!

Krista chose our topic this week, Bliss.  Her photo (shown on top) beautifully captures her son's curious state of Bliss!  My photo (shown below) depicts the five minutes of Bliss I have every morning.

For info on Team Up Thursday visit Megan at Mental Inventory.

In other news....
I am soooo excited to announce that I won a contest at Surprise Delight Joy. SuZ is soooo incredibly talented.  Her whimsical creations bring a smile to my face every time I visit her blog and Etsy Shoppe.  Thank you SuZ!!!! xoxoxo

Long Story Short

This year has brought many things.... but blog posts it has not. Long story short... I  moved twice in 5 months and started a full time job, along with a bunch of bits and pieces in between.  With each spontaneous occasion, I hear a little voice inside that says "How incredible - You should blog that"... but then tick-tock on the clock and before I know it -life has moved on and "the something incredible" has now become old news.

My blog and my readers are truly like old friends.  Maybe you can relate with the friend you've lost touch with and though you are friends forever, you don't really know where to start to catch them up on things... and so you don't.  
Even though I haven't posted in very many moons, I visit my blog almost everyday.... Checking out my favorite bloggers who have recently posted, seeing who has visited my blog lately and sometimes I just stop by to listen to the sound of music.  But mostly I come for inspiration... wishing, hoping and praying that I will find the time to create and blog in my crazy schedule of being a full time working mom, who feels like she is carrying the family's shell around on her back.  

Sooo, thank you for your support and patience while I find space on the clock to work in a post or two.       xoxo

On a different note... One day when I happened upon my blog, I noticed that my banner had disappeared...  I am not sure what happened but in my search to find the banner image in my ultra-unorganized computer files, I came across all of my old banners...   Again, it was like rediscovering photos of old friends and remembering the good times.... so here I would like to share with you.  Those of you that have been reading for some time might remember some of these...

Thanks for taking a peek!!!
Please come back to see what I have been up too!
