First of all, your product here is wonderful, and you are making me want to sit down with my latest gift of a paper theatre!!!!!! I LOVE your photo on your side bar with your jersey; what a gal you are!

We had the best time in SUNNY and WARM California with our families. My fun family put on a super-duper Mexican feast and we sang, danced, laughed, produced music AND a video that I will never forget.

This weekend however, I have so much laundry to do, it ain't funny....good to see you my friend! Anita

I've been so busy I haven't even had the chance to check to see what is happening in blogland. I love this adorable little piece and the charlotte heads.

Good morning Deb! Thanks for coming my way today! Oh did I have a blast in California, and because were were only there for FOUR days, it obviously went too fast. We literally zoomed around in the rental car from one relative's house to another, but had a hilarious time on Christmas day at my cousin's house. It will take me some time to write about the details of that experience, and I'm finding myself trying to put together a new post for tomorrow..can you believe it? January 1, 2014?

How fun it would be to have a meeting up in California with you one day! I will know you when I see you: a beautiful woman with a sparkle in her eyes.

LOVE! HAPPY 2014! Anita

Good morning Deb, and a happy new 2014 to you! YES, six years have passed and I cannot believe it. Have you ever looked in your archives to see your very first posts? It is a wonderful thing to see where we've been, and where our words lead us.

Thank you for coming back because it is the adventure of kindness that I love that most because it takes me to worlds we usually don't see otherwise. BIG THANKS and much love! Anita
