You meet the nicest people on Flickr!

I love Flickr. It's such a wonderful place to hang out. The internet really shrinks the world. It enables you to "meet" people of like-interests, to share ideas, techniques and view one another's masterpieces online. I received this sweet letter from Sandy who lives in Canada:

:: Thank you!Hi Teresa! I just wanted to thank you for your much appreciated sweet remarks on my art! For the longest time Ihave been meaning to tell you something ironic. Over a year ago I was googling some stuff when I stumbled upon your jar fairies and your altered clock. I gasped in delight and had no idea that this type of art existed before! I then discovered that people posted their art on flickr regularly. I lost your flickr name- but months later I happened to find you again. So you see, it is an honor to receive compliments from you because you are the one who opened my eyes to this world of magic and creativity. Thank you for that! Have a great day! Sandy:)

Sandy has a great shop on Etsy she calls Distressrelief. Be sure to check it out soon. She has some great pieces of art.

Oh, you nodder head!

I acquired these wonderful bedsprings yesterday and couldn't wait to do something with them. With an Alice-in-Wonderland theme in mind, I came up with this charming nodderhead rabbit. Seems he has lots of spring in his step. LOL!

Building mountains

For the last several years, my contribution to our church's Vacation Bible School has been to decorate the sanctuary. This year's theme is called Outrigger Island and it focuses on Psalm 86:11 - Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth.

Well, apparently, pride really does go before the fall. I was really liking the way the decorations looked, when five minutes before the church service began this morning, my big ol' mountain fell. It started to lean and before I could make my way up there, the whole thing came crashing down. I had several people come to my aid and we raised the mountain. The Lord said that if you have the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains. I guess this also applies to cardboard ones as well.
