Mother's Day & more Word Art...

FOR TODAY... may 10, 2010

outside my window... gorgeous sunny day!
i am thankful for... the closeness that social media provides with my extended network of friends.
i am wearing... dark blue jeans, sheer navy top, clear jelly sandals.
noticing that... my eye is starting to get better.
i am reading... "making and breaking the grid" by t. samara
on my mind... greece... looking forward to our summer trip.
               pondering these words... "all the buddhas of all the ages have been telling you a very simple fact: be - don't try to become. within these two words, be and becoming, your whole life is contained. being is enlightenment, becoming is ignorance"-osho-
around the house... a gorgeous flower arrangement from my boys.
from the kitchen... plain greek yogurt with honey.
one of my favorite things... opening the fridge and having more than one beverage choice.
i'm creating... some more word art...
a few plans for the rest of the week... buy may birthday presents for family members, pay bills, grocery shopping, another doctor's visit.....
from my lens... 

hydrangeas and orchids from my boys - 
love you guys!
steak & veggies on the bbq.

i had so much fun creating the last set of word art that i've decided to keep on doing some more.  i'm really enjoying creating it and find myself, little by little, more comfortable adding little elements and different ideas. hope you like it and have fun looking for the perfect photos to go with it!

i had an awesome mother's day, hope you had a great one too! here's a small set of pink word art so that you can use on your mother's day layouts!

i'm happy to report my eye is not hurting as much and hopefully will keep on getting better. the doctor told me i just have to be patient and stay on the medication for another 2 or 3 weeks! 
i'm glad i still managed to do some scrapping this past week even though i did not spend half the time i usually do at the computer.
don't forget to leave me a link to your galleries and again many, many thanks for all of your wonderful comments and e-mails!

have a wonderful week!
