Heart-stirrings

My heart has been restless these last few weeks.  Something in my creative life is. . . off.  Missing.

I began praying for direction, but my heart wasn't truly open.  I was looking in the wrong direction for my answers. 

But my answer has come, loud and clear.  Actually, the answer was here, all along, and I just didn't see it.  Now things are so clear, and I'm truly joyful and excited about the prospects. . .  they feel exactly right.

A tiny bit of stitching

This is more of a catch-up post, as I forgot to show you these tiny little embroideries -- all the way back from early January!   These were done for another Embroidery Hoopla Swap, on Craftster.  My partner in this round is the lovely savage pixie, who made me this adorably tiny Texas-themed hoop!


Just a mere 4" in diameter, and such beautiful stitching!  And look where the tiny heart is. . . home sweet home.  :)

I made my partner this. . .

Lemony lotion

One thing I quickly learned after moving out here to the desert is that the air is really dry.  Really, really dry.  My skin and sinuses protest daily at this humidity-deprived climate!  I remembered that I had seen a few recipes for homemade lotion, so we decided to try a simple one.


This is the recipe we used. . .

Why, hello there!

I wish you and yours a very Happy Valentine's Day!


(This yummy biscuit recipe can be found here.)

Goodness, I've missed you guys!  But, honestly, I've also enjoyed my little break from blogging and such.  Now I look forward to jumping back in with more regular posts -- starting later this week!  Enjoy your day, and let's talk again real soon.  :)
