I had fun fixing up the bag which just contained a simple Walmart ornament but I think packaging can be a gift in itself- yes? I bought myself an ornament just like it to remember Amy by and I'll hopefully be showing it to you on another day.
Recognize my kitty on the teeny tiny tag I made? ☺ I'll be sharing this kitty image along with my other vintage card images in the days to come!
A special thank you to sweet Sherry from Country Wings In Phoenix for sizing up my header for me! Re- sizing images is tricky for me. I think it's because it involves numbers and my brain doesn't process or remember numbers very well!
I'm so thankful for all my blogging friends! You make my life a richer place and you make the holidays a whole lot of fun!
In the meadow -we can build a snowman
And pretend- that he is parson Brown
He'll say -are you married?
We'll say -no man
But you can do the job while you're in town!

Good day, good friends and new friends and friends in the making friends!
During one of my recent computer exiles, I wanted to play with paper! I didn't have the energy of mind to really create too much, so I decided to cover some trim holders. Flat trim cards

Looky here- I received another love gift during my recent computer exile! My blogging girls sure are special! This time my surprise was from my fairy tale friend, Jackie (aka Molly) from Once Upon a Fairyland. Stopping by Jackie's is lots of fun so pay her a visit if you get the chance! Jackie sent me all sorts of miniature cutie pie treats! Look at these sweet lace doll clothes! They are about Barbie ? size. You probably won't get this pic unless you're from the Seattle area. This clown is not just any ole clown. He's JP Patches! I saw him on Jackie's blog and got tears in my eyes! He introduced the cartoons every morning when Jackie and I were just liddle kiddles growing up!
Molly sent so many sweet little things but I couldn't get good pics of them all! I made the mistake of trying to customize my camera and now I can hardly get a good pic! Ha-ha! Oops! These vintage perfume labels are super cool!

Happy Holiday week, girls! As you can see, my Christmas (blog) decorations are already up!
Here's some cute ornament ideas from Goodhouskeeping magazine! The fabric ball up above is my favorite! My head is swimming with ideas for this one. I've already started making a tiny one and it isn't as easy as it looks! But maybe that's because I'm not following the directions? ☺

Hello my sweet bloggy girls! I'm back with my own computer again but I can't help but hold my breath! Even the computer repairman seemed a bit baffled which doesn't seem like a good sign, eh? ☺
Well, here's another one of my exile craft projects- a decoupaged bunny! ♥
I'm just so happy to be back in blog land that I would like this bunny to hop on over to the first bunny loving blogger who wants her. Just leave a comment to let me know and she's yours! ♥

I made 2 red rick rack pumpkins like this during my first computer exile and I sent them off to my 2 remaining pay it forward participants. Click to enlarge to see possible coffee grounds. Hee-hee! Don't forget about me- okay? I miiiissss you!

♥ Guess what, peeps!!?? When I woke up this morning my computer wouldn't boot up! So, my computer is now down for the third time! Ha-ha-ha-ha! (Please insert mad scientist/Daffy Duck going insane laugh here!!!) This is really getting old but not surprising! You might can surprise me twice but not three times! Ha-ha! So, here I am down at my beloved library again. Bobby was still sleeping when I left so he hasn't talked to Dell yet to find out what's wrong.
I was going to try to get some pics on this morning of my new craft projects from one of those exile thingies but let's just never mind about that-shall we?! Ha-ha-ha-ha! (Please insert a vision of Holly repeatedly bumping into the wall like a robot here!) Who knows, maybe we'll get the computer fixed today?! Ha-ha-ha-ha!
But anyway, I did have this one and only post in draft. It's a post about another love gift I received and let me tell you, it's little gifts like this that make the world a much sweeter place!

Hi, girls! I'm back from my second computer exile! Hopefully I'll be good to go for a long, long, time! I miiiiiiiised you all!
During my first exile, I received two bloggy love gifts! They sure cheered me up!
This first one was from Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage. Amy has been crafting up a storm lately and she shared some of that storm with me! See the pretty altered "girls at Heart" box? That's now my tag supply box. I'm the big girl in the middle and Amy is the little girl leaning on me. The other little girl is a friend Amy brought along and if you want to, you can pretend that's you! ☺ Amy made this sweet heart for my Sweet Retreat! It looks perfectly in place on the wall in there. I love all the little "treats" on it!

Thanks for all the hugs and pity concerning my lack of computer situation! ♥ I'll be back here at the library again tomorrow morning but my library is closed on Sundays.

Groan! Groan! Groan!! My computer is down again, girls! Can you believe it? This time it's the motherboard that Dell is replacing free of cost. I don't know how long we'll have to wait this time. Hopefully not as long! My computer is only 2 years old so I don't know why we're having so many troubles. Maybe we wore the thing out already??? Okay, anyway, here I am at the library again and I'll show you what else I made during my FIRST exile!
Remember these cutie pie papers that I got for my Birthday?
Well, I made some cutie pie tags with them!
One thing I have learned about me and tags: Sometimes I can make them and other times I can't. If the creative juices aren't there- forget it! I tried making more of these and- NOPE! Maybe another day, eh?

Our computer has been repaired! Hurray! We are all taking turns on here "catching up" but my main time won't be until tomorrow morning when it's quiet! I sure did miss all my blogging sisters!
Look! I am so totally in love with these types of vintage Forget Me Nots! Rebecca from Belle Masion is obviously a romantic because she sent me these! I immediately popped them in my latest Picket Fence/Nursery Friends pic!
