I started this blog as a place to put the "mommy stuff" that just doesn't fit over on my other blog.

I became a first time mom at the age of 43 so this blog is written from *gasp* an older mom's perspective.

I love being a mom to the funniest little girl on the planet (check out the scroll over to the right ---> for some of her gems!) and I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures together!

Fairies, Fairies and more Fairies

This One World One Heart event has been such fun! Last year I participated without making any of my own art. I had a great time meeting everyone and I actually visited every participating blog. This year I took a different approach and decided to create something myself and let me tell you I am hooked!! Actually it may be fair to say I am addicted. The craft room we built in the garage was set up primarily for my almost four year old to do her craft projects. I wanted a place where we wouldn't have to worry about a mess etc., but all that aside you can now find me in there at all hours of the day and night, glue gun in hand, making all sorts of fairy treasures!!  I didn't visit nearly the number of blogs I would have liked... because my time was spent creating!! 

Which is good news for my lucky winner #49 Tara from Sew Gorgeous!  Tara please choose from the creations displayed below, one fairy (eight to choose from) and one fairy door (five to choose from) of your choice. You will also get the solar printing kit and $25 to spend at the Etsy shop of your choice.

And because I had more then 100 comments, I have an additional winner of a $25 gift to the Etsy shop of her choice for #88 Jennifer of Artistically Designed Diversions.  After both of you have made your Etsy selections contact me and I will arrange payment for your treasures. 



  1. Congrats to your lucky winners, Kathy! I'll be picking my winners tomorrow morning! Hope you had fun during the event. :) Theresa

    Tried to go to your 'bliss' website yesterday but had a bigtime problem! It kept opening new pages, many of them. Had to shut down the computer! Has that happened to anyone else?

  5. Mary,
    Thank you so much for telling me this. I hadn't heard of this problem from
    anyone else.

    How did you get to the site? Did you click a link from somewhere or type in the
    address? Perhaps I can get to the bottom of it knowing this.

    I'll see what I can find out and get back to you right away.
    I'm so sorry this happened for you!




Thank you "very so much" (the construct I stole from my 3 year old!) for your comments! I reply to every comment. I will ALWAYS reply over here on the blog so if you haven't heard from directly please do check back here. If you become a Disqus member you will be automatically updated via email as well!
