Getting back to it

Wow! I have not blogged in forever. I have allowed so much the busyness of life to pull me away from my passions. Thank to my adopted sis from Graphic Direction for moving me a little towards it! Amenia is an aspiring Graphic designer and would love your input on her progressive work! She is most talented!!!!

Nov 20th Etsyblogger Blog Carnival

Most countries around the world have a day set aside to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. Here in the US, it's Thanksgiving. What do you celebrate wherever you live and how do you celebrate?

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! The entire family gets together either at my place or my brothers and we all cook, play cards and just laugh about old times! My sister is stationed in Germany and one of my brother's is in Maryland so it is definitely a treat when all of us can come together! Now we all have kids and I am the grandma so our kids enjoy laughing at all of our old stories too!

Happy Holidays!

The Eyes are the mirror of the soul

I love the eyes! They are generally the first thing (along with the smile) that draws me to a person. They say the eyes are the mirror of the soul. Look at these eyes and tell me what these eyes say to you! Here are my thoughts:

#1 - Their eyes look a little tired but seem focused and persistent
#2 - hmm..I see a little worry and anxiety but strength.
#3 - Deep, passionate, soft yet intense
