some early morning chatter!

(from Deb)
 Good morning bloggy pies!  Just a quick check in.. soon I have to get ready for work.  oh that dreaded work that gets in the way of my play time!  lol!  I wanted to thank Deb (garage sale gal)  Maggie (maggies little fixins) and Kathy (creative home expressions) for the sweet cards and gifties that they sent me.  January and February are the worst months as far as dreariness goes and Valentines day is the perfect holiday to throw in at this time of year.  Whoever invented Valentines day was brilliant! lol!  
(from maggie)
 Its so nice to add a little bright cheerfulness and February really needs it! Reds and pinks.. and sweet sentiments are perfect for lifting our spirits arent they?  I think we need that.  Blogging and swapping make it all the better!  sweet little envelopes and packages arriving in the mail from girls we may only know on line.. but we do know them, they are our bloggy friends.. they are our neighbors in this online community.  Sometimes they know us better then people we see everyday!  right?  
(from Kathy)
When you are blogging and reading blogs, do you ever try to picture that person in their home?  maybe sitting on their porch having tea? or making dinner for her family?  of relaxing at the beach? or sewing and working on crafts ?  Or maybe jumping in the car with her family in tow on their way to their A frame cottage?  (kimmie).  I try to do that when I read your blogs.  I can picture some of you decorating your houses, hanging heart garlands.   Or maybe like Theresa, sitting at a ballgame rooting a granddaughters team on.  Or maybe you can see them sitting at their computer clicking away on the keys to write a blog post to give us all a little glimpse into their probably very busy lives!  anyways.. I do that.  I cant help it that I do it.  it just happens.  I might get the picture all wrong.. who knows.. but its what I do! lol! 
So as for the Valentine swap, hopefully everyone has followed through with hooking up with their partner and has mailed out by now...    I hang my head in shame.. because I only mailed my package to susie yesterday....  (I know, right?)  anyways.. it is on its way susie, and should be delivered tomorrow!  Ive been seeing some of you posting what you received and sent.. love seeing it all.  so many creative people out there!    Ive been having fun making valentines cards.. a little glimpse above.   still a bunch more to make.. I have to laugh at myself because, when Im inspired to do something, I get a little obsessed.   so I often roll out of bed at 5:00 am and will be sitting at my craft table with scissors or glue in hand but 5:10!!  Seriously!    
OK.. it is now 7:30 and I should feed figgy, frannie and buffy and get myself ready for work.   need to leave a little earlier then usual.. because there is all this white stuff all over the place out there!  this pic is from yesterday morning.. look at that sun coming up through those trees. looks like theres a fire! 
Okeedokie then.. gotta go!  have a great day my bloggy pies!

Awww what sweet gifts! I know Deb and she has sent me pretties before:) If you could see me at the ballgames, you would say "who is that crazy lady jumping and yelling":) I loved my visit with you this morning! The snow is beautiful but not fun to drive in! Have a blessed and beautiful day dear Viv, HUGS!

Margaret said...

You're the best! I'm glad you like your gifts. I do the sme thing you do--imagine what my bloggy buddies are doing. When you had your sprinkle for the new baby I was picturing it before you put up the photos! Hugs! Maggie

I totally agree with everything you've said. I sometimes feel like I know my blogging friends (my imaginary friends as Chris calls them) better than folks I see everyday. I've loved having our blogging friendship all these years. It's so much fun to see your creativity and little glimpses of your life. Hugs!!

Stephanie said...

You are welcome in my crazy home anytime! Thank you for your warmth and encouragement today. Be blessed, Friend.

Debbie Kay said...

Oh Viv, you make me smile everytime I visit your blog. I received my swap yesterday and plan to blog about it today or over the weekend. Thank you for hosting, you are a blessing.

So much pretty stuff, your right the blogging community is such a wonderful, creative and generous bunch!! I definitely feel like I get to know my blogger buddies better than some of the people I spend my days with.
What a beautiful sunrise! How's the new grand pie? Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week :-)
Blessings to you and yours
sugar, spice and whatever's nice

I'm glad you liked your "thank you", Vivian! : ) It's funny you should say that about imagining our bloggy friends, because I am imagining you in your pj's typing away at this blog post in between sips of tea or coffee.

Hope you had a great day. You've got quite a bit of snow and I hope it is safe driving at this point. We had a little bit last night that all froze so I stayed home today.


I didn't think blogging would ever be so rewarding!!Nice goodies.

Cute, cute, cute! Yes, my online friends actually know me better than anyone else. I guess because I express myself better in writing and in pictures!
