Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

Wearing Your Fun: The Latest Online Finds! :D

I might have gone a bit 5th grade on this one, haha!, and yes, that's a scar near my wrist. Interesting story that scar - dates back to when my eldest was months old. I had to fix milk at 2 am, groggy. and the glass bottle dropped inflicting a deep nasty gash on that part of my upper wrist. But hey, this isn't about bleeds or wounds I'm journaling' here. It's all about my latest quirky online fun finds!

My fab online shopping, for the second time ever, was a success, haha! Pleased as an owl I was when I opened my parcels and found my lovely artsy vintagey wants smiling back at me! It was a welcome to mama moment, lols! I luuuuv' everything here - even if it may seem a great dot ...dotty' to others, hehe!! When I saw that watch, ah, pure fun you'd think I've unboxed a Rolex, lols!

This went well, but I'm not an online fan of shopping. I truly have to feel, touch and see something for myself before I swipe a credit card or thrust money in a stranger's account.

The tote bag here is great! It's printed fabric so there's room for stitching and styling. I'd pair all these with a fun cream summer light dress..or a light colored blouse with just the right patina.

Sweet Cherrie'...Live From Your Imagination

Roselle Quin's Slidely Gallery by Slidely Photo Gallery

At last, haha! Been preoccupied with this and that and been here and there so it took a moment of a while for me to have my beloved poupee' take centerstage. This is Sweet Cherrie' -- my darling creation. She was crafted with a dollop of sugary temperament and a love for blooms. She manages a flower boutique and is presently engaged to arrange wreathes and stashes of rosie potpourri for a party of ladies who lunch. Sweet Cherrie' has 2 besties' - both to be introduced in the coming days.
Nothing could be more fun than giving birth to your imagination. I'm hoping to craft around 333 dolls. I'm in the planning and working it out stage. Last month I even attended a doll making class. Life's a buzz and things get in the way...but I feel I won't be complete until what I have in mind turns into reality.
