Farewell April....Hello May!

I must say, when I sat down to think about my blog this week my head was spinning!  This past week was wonderful, but oh so very busy.

April took her leave....

And I spent those two days with sweet friends, antiquing....


And lunching....



May arrived on Wednesday, and ushered in our 43rd wedding anniversary!  Here's the card I made for my groom ~ the hearts are road map images of the 8 cities in which we'ved lived since May 1, 1970...


Wednesday also marked the return of my chickens from a Phoenix visit ~ both girls took a week's vacation, and I was very indulged as they shared their days with me!


Last week I mentioned that there was much to be done in the Hive, so I don't want you to think that it's been all play ~ I've been working too ~

On....



Just a few....



Treasures....


I also want to share these with you, from my most recent online class in Creative Workshops...
"Soulful Adornment" with the very talented Terri Heinz.

They are not finished ~ I'm midway through creating the chains for them...




I'm also very excited to share this lovely ~ a piece commissioned by my sweet friend, Donna...


So, if this wasn't enough excitement in my week ~ Tyler Tesi arrived on Tuesday!  I got to spend special time with Tyler, Gianna, Kelly, and Mike on Saturday...

sweet, precious boy slept in my arms for 1 hour!
Before I leave you today, (you already know I have jewels on the table waiting for me), I wanted to share a very special event that's happening very soon!

Click here for the details of A Ladies Rendezvous at the Rincon Mountain Grill ~  I will be there and hope to see you too!

Have a beautiful week, my dear friends....May is in full bloom here in the desert and we're loving our warm days and balmy nights...Blessings to you!
