In anticipation.....


The peonies in my yard are about to burst open with their gorgeous blooms. Looking at this one the anticipation is almost palpable. I love getting excited about things. Right now I have something to be very excited about. Tomorrow my hubby comes home after being gone for 11 days in Japan. I cannot wait to hear all about his journey!

There seems to be some really fun surprises in blogland right now. Lilli keeps teasing us with gorgeous pictures of amazing items she's been busy as a bee making for her etsy shop grand openeing. We're all anxiously awaiting, any day now!! Last week Andrea said she has a big surprise and left us hangin'. Ooohhh the anticipation! Now Heather has something up her sleeve too. Can't wait!! Melissa spilled a tiny bit about the Marie Antoinette project that Pam has also teased about on her blog. Even the cover looks fabulous! The biggest anticipation for me is that this week the classes that will be offered this year at Silver Bella will be announced. Registration starts June 1st. I went last year and it was absolutely amazing. This year looks to be even better. Soooo excited! Stay tuned here.

Another thing I love to get excited about is people receiving their items from my etsy shop. I love to hear that they've made it safely to their new home and (hopefully) people are pleased. Yesterday I went through all my delivery confirmation notices for this round of sales and it looks like everyone has received their goodies. Yay! I've had several people ask me what I think people do with the goodies they buy. So what do you do with them? I think it's neat how many scrapbooking kit clubs have a gallery area that members show their work that was done with the contents of the kit they get each month. If any of you that have bought from me at any time would like to share what you have made with some of the supplies or the outcome of the kits, I would love to see or hear about it and I'm sure others would too. Post on your blog and send me a link.
Thanks so much!

Ooh, you must be so anxious to see Hubby! I'm sure he'll have great stories to tell.

THANKS for the link!! :) I too am eagerly awaiting my shop opening and wonder when it will be. I keep myself guessing sometimes.

So many projects in the air, so much inspiration to anticipate. Lucky us!

Oh, I love peonies!! I think they are my favorite. My grandma had them in her garden, so I think that may have something to do with it. :)
Mine just started to open as well!!

Peonies are my all time favorite flower! A peony is like a rose that got set free. Shabby, unshackled beauty. I know you'll be glad for your husband's return. I'm sure he had a wonderful time.
I'll tell you...if I had snagged one of your peat pots, I would have left it just as you put it together. So lovely!
