I figure that in spite of all the stress in my life right now, I should be able to find at least one thing a day that brings a bit of happiness, or something that I can be thankful for.

Today the postman came to the door with a large parcel that I had to sign for... it was this lovely vase, created by Tara Ackerman at Green Cycle Designs. I love the turquoise and white punched flowers all over it, and even more, I love that I can see the back of the magazine pages through the inside of the vase!!

And the 'squeeeee' factor here? I won this. Yes! Courtesy of the lovely ladies at the Bright Side Project, where the goal is to "bring sunshine every day with themed, daily giveaways."

Happy Canada Day!

I kind of fell off the planet for a while. And oddly, I probably wouldn't be posting right now were it not for the fact that my brain won't let me leave a June header on the top of my blog when it's now July. Hooray for kicks in the pants!

Life has been interesting. As always. Sometimes that's fine, sometimes not so much. I've been busy with projects, but none of them are finished yet, and everything is in such a state of flux that I don't know whether I'm coming or going most of the time. How did I think that life would get easier when I "grew up"? (And speaking of that, when, exactly, do I attain that blissful state? I'm still waiting...) And worse, how did I think that things would get easier and less complicated as the kids got older???
