Good morning, Kelli! Some way or the other, I bumped into your blog the other day - and I am sure it was meant to be! I just love your blog! The wonderful pictures, your lovely homemade cards, your recepies and much, much more.... I`m a Norwegian teacher-mom and blogging is a way for me to relax and get my energy back. The reason I love to browse US blogs, is that I`m planning to celebrate Thanksgiving this year. I`m therefore hoping to find some ideas on what to cook and so on. I will be following your blog, and you are of course welcome to mine! It`s in Norwegian, but you can look at the pictures! I can asure you, it`s different from Texas...

Wishing you a blessed day!

Hi Kelli,

I'm not sure if the budget art I just did qualifies? I may make a banner so I'll probably link that.


Kerri said...

Hi Kelli,
I love the cards you have been making. I enjoy seeing all the different ones that are made by others you have inspired too. Thanks for all the creative ideas:)
Love Kerri

How adorable! I actually just started to make my cards to sell at a craft show so I'll scan one and put in on my blog tomorrow. :) I won't be home tonight so I can't get to it. Have a wonderful day, Kelli!

Your projects are so very pretty. I know this doesn't relate to this post, but, I made the pumpkin butterscotch bread that you posted a year ago. I just wanted to let you know my family thought it was fantastic! Your posts, whether it is a craft, recipe, or just what's going on in your home is so inspiring! Keep up the good work. Blessings!

Hi Kelli!
As always, your cards are beautiful! I really like the look of putting ribbon and lace on the cards. I'm lucky enough to be off this weekend and I hope to get in plenty of crafting/card making. Maybe I'll have something new to share next week. Have a great weekend!
