Such Beautiful Talent

I come from a family that is very artistically talented.  All through my life I have been exposed to all kinds of creativity.  This past week My sweet aunt Lona lost her life while out on her road bike due to a distracted driver.  Over the past week I have been reflecting on her life, the time I got to spend with her and the influence she had in shaping who I am today.  As a child I always looked forward to time with her.  She would swim with me in the snake river and take me exploring along the banks to find the pink moss.  I could spend hours in her room looking at all her fun creations.  As I grew older I would bring my children to her home to swim in the river, go exploring and peek in her studio at her creations.  It was said at her funeral yesterday that she would make you feel like you were her favorite.  She truly loved everyone and life with all she had.  My heart is so full of sorrow for her sweet husband and though's who were especially close to her.  I am so grateful for my knowledge of the gospel of Jesus Christ, that I know we will live again after this life. My Father in Heaven has filled my soul with comfort and peace at this time. When I am out enjoying the beauty of this earth or creating something I will think of my sweet Aunt Lona and how she lived life to the fullest. 

Check out her blog to see more of her amazing work.

It's tonight, are you coming?

Yippee, tonight is the first night of the Hive.  It is always my favorite.  I go and hang out at the Hive all night.  Melissa's house looks awesome.  So many cute things to find.  I have Mothers day gifts in mind and a few Birthday gifts too.  I hope you can make it.  Here is the last of my sneak peeks.  I LOVE knobs and hooks of all kinds.  I just collect them when I find one I like.  I decided it was time to find a use for them all.  Ta da, knobs on boards to hand whatever your heart desires.

What is more perfect for spring than a wreath wrapped in darling trims and fabrics!  JUmp on over to Melissa's blog for a sneak peak inside the Hive.

Don't forget tonight 6:30-9:00 
Friday 10:00-4:00
Saturday 10:00-1:00

Time to BUZZ about the Hive

If my kids do extra jobs around the house or are really brave at the doctor and I reward them with a little treat.  I don't like to call it bribing, I like to think of it more as positive re-enforcement.  So I would like to give you a little treat to spread the word about the Hive.  Unfortunately I only have one jar full of super yummy Cadbury eggs. {Easter is right around the corner} 
So hear is the deal, you can face book, e-mail or blog about this event

Leave me a comment telling me how you buzzed about the Hive.  Do this by Saturday night at 12:00 p.m. I will draw for the winner and announce it on Sunday. Don't worry if you live out of state, I will happy ship this sweet jar your way.
