Quote for the Day

Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.

A Little Giggle for Today


A church Pastor woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.

So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to preside over the services for him that day.

As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, the Pastor headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his church. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?"

The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."

Just then the Pastor hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole.


St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"

The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?"

Tee hee hee!!! Love that one! Have a giggly day!

Cute Gift Bag

A co-worker of mine is getting married in a couple weeks and I wanted to give her a small gift. Unfortunately, I didn't have any (last minute) NEW cute ideas for a gift so it was the same one as seen here. I know not very imaginative but it is personalized and she seemed to love it!!

The part I was stressing about was the gift bag. Since I was bringing it into work, I wanted it to look GOOD so everyone would enjoy it!!! I keep a couple extra white gift bags on hand so, in a pinch, they can be used for any occasion. I started with the printed wedding paper at the bottom of the bag, then added the green paper at the top.... then what to embellish with??? Easy peasy, make paper flowers from the scraps!!! BINGO!! I used the process shown here to make the paper flowers at the top of the bag. VERY EASY!!! She did a great job of showing the process.

Put some Dollar Store "gems" in the middle for a little bling!
Pretty cute! Only took about 15 minutes to finish!

Enjoy, thanks for looking.
Have a great day
