Question Time

      Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get  to know more about me and also helps me to get feedback on a number of questions.  There are times when one comes across an item in a particular colour and can't resist buying it.  Has this happened to you recently?  Well, I could not pass the pair of sandals below. I think it is in such a pretty shade of green.  Green is one of my favourite colours.
    As usual I am participating in Friendship Friday hosted by  Create with Joy where the theme this week is What makes you smile?  When you are sad or having a rough day, what do you do to bring a smile to your face? Well, this theme has come on one of those days for me!  I meditate, do Yoga exercises, chat with friends and relatives, keep busy and of course blog!

Bird Figurine Series - # 48

   We have been experiencing some windy days and I say " Blow wind blow and cool me down as long as it is not a storm or hurricane!"  Another thrill is to hear this Scarlet Macaw chime.  I have had it for many years. Janine and I always moved it to different places at our home just to hear the chimes!

Sew Crafty Angel - Sponsor

      A big thank you to Angel of Sew Crafty Angel for being the first sponsor of my blog.  My best wishes and continued success to you!
                                                           Hi I'm Angel
I'd like to invite you to visit my blog and look around.
Don't let the blog name fool you, it's not all about sewing.

I loooove chocolate

      


I host an amazing Thursday Blog Hop

I love summertime.  It's the time of year that I can play outside with my kids.
We love to be in the pool most of the time.  It's a wonderful family time.

My best personality trait is that I have a lot of patience.
Between having 4 kids running around and being a RN patience has been an asset.
My worst trait is that I'm also bossy, my kids will attest to that, lol.

My blog has been a blessing wrapped in a challenge.  
I need my blog for a creative outlet, however it is difficult to make it 
happen some days.  The kids need my attention, my husband, the house,
my 20 month old Jacob, I have a daughter with medical issues who can 
rarely manage to leave the house.  Running my blog is challenging, but I love a 
challenge.

   
      I love to Laugh                                      Create                                                  Inspire

I love giveaways, after all, everybody likes gifts, right?

I post an average of 5 to 6 times per week.
My blog just turned 6 months old.

Hope you will come and visit me.

Question Time

      Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get  to know more about me and also helps me to get feedback on a number of questions. Do you find the time to read a lot of books and who is your favourite author?  I wish I had more time to do so.  Anyway I recently went into  a pharmacy and saw 2 books by my favourite author Danielle Steel. I hope I get a chance to read them real soon. In addition I have a number of books on my Kindle for PC!
     
    As usual I am participating in Friendship Friday hosted by  Create with Joy where the theme this week is Seasonal Blogging. Do the seasons tend to impact your blogging habits? Do you tend to blog steadfastly year round? Are you blogging more, less or the same than usual this summer?Since I started my blog just over 2 years ago the seasons have not impacted my blogging habits. This year  I have increased my posts from to 3 to 4 every week.

Bird Figurine Series - # 47

    This lovely vase in the shape of a heart featuring flowers and a bird on each side was always   special for Janine and me.  The heart is the symbol of love and as I reflect I remember this quote by Thomas Bailey "What is lovely never dies, But passes into other loveliness."

The Blessing Of Blogging - Creative Monday Blog Hop

        When I ventured into blogging in March 2011 I did not have a clue that it would lead to contact with so many wonderful persons. One such person is am amazing blogger by the name of Rosey who has a very interesting blog,  Mail4Rosey.  She gave me the opportunity to get a beautiful violet hummingbird wall hanging from Novica.  It arrived at a time when I needed something to lift my spirit.  This wall hanging was created by J.Blas who works in iron. It is interesting reading that in Mexico when someone sees a humingbird in flight, he or she makes a wish.  Hummingbirds are among my favourite birds and Jamaica's national bird is the Jamaican Streamer Tail Hummingbird. This wall hanging brought back memories of many years ago when I last saw our national bird. There I was with my twin sister and a hummingbird stopped for awhile on our verandah gate.  As I look at this beautiful bird I give special thanks to Rosey and make a wish for good health, peace and happiness.
   I knew the perfect spot for this wall hanging in my living-room, between two other wall hangings which feature a lady and a man with fruits.  Nature in all its glory!

Question Time

    Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get to know more about me and also helps me to get feedback on a number of questions. Are you good at riddles?  I am hopeless at coming up with the right answers so when I got one right recently I wished that I could do cartwheels. The riddle was 'What has hands but can't clap?'  The answer was quite easy so no wonder I got it right - A clock!  Anyway I am learning new riddles thanks to Marie who has the blog Xmas Dolly.  On Fridays check out her post Riddle Me This.
          As usual I am participating in Friendship Friday hosted by Create With Joy where this week the theme is Business or Pleasure.  The question is Business or Pleasure - why do you blog?  Well, I have been a Freelance Writer for many years and after my twin sister died I decided that starting a blog would be therapeutic.  It also helped me to focus on the good times, hobbies and interests we shared as twins.  I spend a lot of time on my blog and it has grown so much that I am now trying to earn an income from it by offering a special sponsor offer. I welcome sponsorship and the details can be found here SPECIAL SPONSOR OFFER.

They Must Be On My Wall! - Creative Monday Blog Hop

      Show me an item featuring a bird and I am always so thrilled. Many persons know that I am a big bird enthusiast and of course they include relatives.  I was so happy when I received a package containing 2 beautiful embroidered birds made by my cousin Marlene in Massachusetts.  I could display them in several ways but immediately I decided that I would get them framed for my living-room wall.
   I have never seen a cardinal in real life but I think it is such a beautiful bird. I have cardinal figurines and have seen pictures and cards featuring this bird. Now I have a picture of a cardinal on my wall!
    
   Blue is my favourite colour so it is great to have a bluebird picture. In addition the bluebird is associated with happiness and I certainly need a good dose of that!
