Blog Banner

Greetings friends!
I got a new camera for Christmas and have been having so much fun playing!
I am also getting ready to take my jewelry and art dolls out for a little show, yesterday was a great day for picture taking...

These girls are all looking for their place in the picture and of course want to be the focal point of the shot!!!

I started with this picture of a few remnants of my past.
The white dress was mine when I was a baby and the red check dress and coat were a few of my favorite doll clothes. I was so excited when I found them I didn't take time out for ironing. If you have read any of my blog in the past you will know that the last time I had the ironing board out, I broke my toe!!! Ha! Anyway... I was on a misson to make up some cute price tags and in the process came up with yet another banner! This one is my own artwork, so I feel good about that! I have just picked up bits and pieces on how to build a blog along the way , so if my little blog looks somewhat disheveled sometimes, you know I have trying out new techniques. Did you see the advertisement at the top left hand corner of banner page, I stumbled upon this very informative site a few nights ago and that is where I got my background. Until I have time to design my own background. This works for me, I love polka dots!!! Oh ! Just wanted to remind you to check out the Valentine's Blog Party on my side bar. And yes please consider my Wizard Challenge. Thank-you to the girls that have signed-up!
This is going to be a very busy month for me, my husband is having surgery and I have a few challenges to keep my mind occupied. I have to go now, come back soon!!! Stephani

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
