Hubby and I went to an estate sale and it was pretty much a "bust"....very slim pickins!!! I thought the bunnies would work for Easter crafts....anyway...I'm looking forward to garage sale season!
I sure hope all the snow is melted before Easter! I LOVE Easter and this year my birthday is the day before. That makes it extra special, I think!

It was so nice to read all the comments about my consignment dress for the wedding! Thank you! XO
Off to get the Grandgirl from school. Tomorrow is cake tasting and Saturday is the florist!

I KNOW that you are all Excited to see my Mother of the Bride dress.....so here it is!!! The photos don't show the "glitterness" on it...(photos from cell phone). I need to have the straps shorten, image that...I'm only 5'3", but look taller because I wear my hair "puffy".... or is it "big"...LOL!!!
I LOVE saying, Mother of the Bride!!! Next Friday is the cake testing. The date kept getting changed as the Bride wants the Top Baker to make her cake! I'll take photos! I do know that she wants a "square" cake, with bling around each layer.
I've been under the weather this week. COLD....started Monday and went to a "minute clinic" today and got a RX for the cough. Not a "spring chicken" any more! Glad that it is just a cold.
Grandgirl has a NEW PUPPY BROTHER and I'll show him off on the next post! He is darling! She doesn't like me to call him, her puppy brother! She is at that age where she isn't the "sweet" little girl...trying to grow up and friends are more important than family....anyway...
Guess what??? Its snowing! Might just be home bound tomorrow. It is a pretty snowfall! Huge, fat flakes.
Has anyone, I mean, Anyone, Seen SPRING!!!???

Doni from Faith, Grace and Crafts had a "lace" giveaway and this is what she sent me. Aren't the lace flowers pretty! THANK YOU so, MUCH, Doni! It will be great fun to use them when crafting!
Hubby and I went out for Valentine's day tonight. We had gift cards for Red Lobster :) YUM!! We wanted to avoid the "crowds".
THANK YOU, ALL so much for your very kind comments about my baptism.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!! I hope you have a Sweet day!

Here I am making my statement of faith and why I want to be baptized.
Here is my statement of faith that I read:
I want to be baptized today because I Love Jesus.
I have accepted Him as my Lord and Savior.
I believe that he died on the cross for me and my sins.
I believe that God the Father created Heaven and Earth.
I believe that the Holy Spirit lives in me as a believer and helps me in my Christian walk.
I want to be baptized today because Jesus was. I want to show Him my love and commitment to Him and to the body of believer, my family and friends.
I just wanted to share with you my faith and my day!
I need to clarify that baptism doesn't "save" you..."For it is by Grace you have been saved...it is the Gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. Eph 2: 8 & 9 A "gift" that you must accept!

Linda, from A Swap For All Seasons has a monthly swap. We make one card, one tag in the colors/theme for that month and send along a little "destash" goodies. Marti, from Artful Curiosities made and send me the above beautiful card and tag! Lots of lace and pretty details are in the card and tag. It seems each time I'm in this swap and receive my card and tag, I don't want to use them.
Thank you, Marti!
