So busy getting ready for the big family Easter dinner tomorrow. I felt the need to take a break and do something else besides cleaning and baking. With the heavenly smell of a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake in the oven, I'll type out the amusements that go on in my head.
First of all, I have to STRONGLY encourage everyone to do some Spring cleaning, especially if you've lost something years ago. Even though you've long ago giving up the search, Spring cleaning brings it to you! Like magic, your missing treasured things appear!
My Spring cleaning made my lost sketch books reappear and look what was inside my sketch book!
My Hippo wedding couple with their little ring bearer!
This was something that I did back in 94 during a particularly long Ad Council meeting at church.
It doesn't matter if it's the agenda for the meeting, I'll doodle on anything in front of me that is paper.
This turned out to be a bit more than my usual doodle but I'm so happy that my Hippo wedding couple have been found.
But my old sketch books have just made me so so happy, the missing tablecloths distress is eased. I know they will turn up eventually. Probably just like the sketch books; when I'm not looking for them.
When I found the sketchbooks, I immediately sat down and went through them, page by page, over and over again, at least a half dozen times. I don't remember most of the things I drew but some of them ...well, I'm just so incredibly happy that they are back in my life.
I've found that the older I get, it's just the simple things in life that make me the happiest.
I also found a long lost leather thimble. I actually had two of them go missing, but finding one is just fine with me.
Simple things. Blessings indeed.
I have a couple new designs that will be ready once this Easter stuff is over. One in particular, I'm really really excited about.
No, it's not a design of a hippo wedding party. :)
May your home be filled with Easter happiness tomorrow! Happy Easter!
