My New Blog!

Posted by on Jan 21, 2013 in art, foyer | 18 comments

Daisy Mae Belle has had a makeover!

A SUPER HUGE THANK YOU to Jason Burgess for the new look!

And, another SUPER HUGE THANK YOU to my brother-in-law, Paul for helping me get my logo off of my sketch pad and onto the computer!
I have virtually no computer skills, so I never could have done anything like this!!!

I hope that you enjoy the new site!

I was wanting a cleaner look that was easier to navigate.  I think I have gotten just that!

Now, on to a couple of quick pictures.

I am longing for Spring!

I am really not much of a cold weather girl.  I often dream of living in Hawaii.  Has anyone seen the show on HGTV about moving to Hawaii?!  You should not watch it if it has been cold and rainy at your house for days and days.  It leaves you seriously considering it!

 My solution for gray days is to add as much vivid green as I possibly can to brighten things up a bit.

I will be sharing more in the days to come!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you like the new look!

Also, thanks to so many who “checked” on me during my blogging absence!  I really never intended to take a break!  Life got so busy with the holidays.  Then, the horrible school tragedy happened, and I decided that the rest of the holidays I was going to take the time to sit and cuddle with my kiddos.  So, that is just what I did!

I hope to be posting regularly from here on out!  I have really missed you guys!

  1. Welcome back! Missed your blog but I know exactly what you mean by spending the time with the kids. Especially after all that has happened! Those are the best times ever the time just sitting,looking and bonding. We did the same:)
    Again welcome back and look forward to all the new ideas and creativity you have in store for us all!;)

  2. I’ve been thinking of you all the time and wondered what happened that I hadn’t gotten any posts from you. So glad to hear from you again.
    New blog is great. Glad you could get it done if you were really wanting it.
    We’re redoing our mtg. down to 3.75% so in next month or so I’ll have little extra money, going to have some work done on my pc, maybe buy myself an inexpensive digital camera, get other sewing machine fixed so I can use it. I have a Kenmore that hubs bought me when he got back from Nam in 69′, I love that old sewing machine much more than one I’m using now. I need a machine I can sew burlap with.
    Good for you taking extra time to spend with your kids, they most likely really enjoyed that, they’ll cherish memories you made.
    You wouldn’t have liked it here for last month or more, it’s been very cold and snow. I mean below zeros at night and barely 10 or so during the day.
    We had 29 today and will be in single digits at night for 1st. time in weeks. Over Christmas/new years our furnace decided it was tired so had over $800 in parts and labor. Good thing hubs knew guy as he gave us a break and our bill was little over $600 instead. We’ve been having to use a small electric heater in our room and bathroom at night.
    I had some skin cancer removed and several precancerous spots frozen on face and shoulder. My lower lip was awful looking after new years, it’s healed up now but boy did I look like I’d been in a war or something, lol. Needless to say we didn’t do much. I had a big spot on bridge of my nose, over left eyebrow, on top of right ear and most of my lower lip, also big spot on my left shoulder. Wasn’t feeling really perky for little while there. Must be getting old, what me?
    Really glad to have you back girl, really missed you . Happy New Year.
