Hello everyone, I "think" life is a bit calmer and happier now. I had a bit of a health scare but I am pretty sure all is well. I am just waiting on a bit more info. Thank you so much for the kind comments and prayers xoxoxo

I am also glad you like my outdoor living room, I wish I could have you all over and feed you !!! I wanted to share the fun garland I made (if you click on the pictures you can see the garland better). I all did was punch a bunch of pretty 3" scalloped circles, cut a length of thread and glue two circles together, with the string between the glue.

Very simple. I have to say I am not one to have a lot of gadgets, but I LOVE my extra large circle punch, I use it a lot. It makes wonderful tags and has become a have-to item for me.

Hi Clarice,

I'm glad you're feeling better and I hope it all turns out o.k.!

Love the happy garland you made! Cute colors and patterns. I've been looking some of those larger punches wondering if they're worth the investment - I may just have to go for it! This is so cute!



Dear Clarice,

So sorry to hear that...I shall being keeping you in my prayers! Your garland is adorable! Take care my friend!

Love & Blessings,


I love it! The thread is invisible, making the circles look like they are hanging in mid-air! Yummy!

All for the love of gadgets and gizmo's and things that make our heart strings leap. I'm a good prayer warrior when you need one Clarice. Just ask anytime. Thank you for coming to visit my blog. Have you seen the little house all lighted pretty on Bainbridge? I think I was on a road called "School House Road" but I may be mistaken.

Hi sweet friend! I hope that this finds you doing fantastic! Are you OK? I will say a prayer for you tonight.

Clarice, your garland is faboulous. So cute and your outside room (and matching thermos) are just adorable. I love the colors that all go together so perfectly.

Please be good to yourself...

much love,


Hi Clarice,
