House cleansing with sage

Hello, I'm  going to do a house cleanse in the morning in Frazeyburg Ohio,  and check out her horse and kittens. Will be a good day with a old friend. Cant wait :-}  This is what I kinda have in mind and think I will take to use.
  White sage that I grow.. 
 Open all doors and windows. 
light the sage and get it to a nice low smoking.
   Going to keep it simple!!
In each room and don't forget the corners.
We will use one of these:
I cleanse this room of any impurities,
negativity, or anything that dose not suit or
support the people that live here.
or this on:
 Cleanse this house and it clear
 only good may enter here.
May sure to cup your hands and shower your self in the smoke when you are done and to give thanks.
Its a good thing to do once a month or more or less depending on you feel. 
Dose things feel icky around your place?? give it a cleanse.
 Yes and good cleaning and good spiritual cleansing can make a big difference.
Bright blessing my friends :-}

Forgiveness is a very hard thing to do, but why carry that weight around with you. I know I have found it very hard at times in the past, but now it seem so easy. Maybe it is something that comes with practice, time and a full heart of love. May  you have a awesome day!

This set of tags I could not figure what one I wanted to put in the challenge soooo  here are booth of them.  All of the stamps came from Viva Las VegaStamps.  The mushroom has a fairy on top that I cut off and the old woman, the blue was cut out and put on the card the same as the mushroom and the other was stamped right on to it.  I had a lot of fun with this rather zesty woman.
at the moment I can't seem to turn the photo's :-(

WOYWW - What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 219

Well I haven't been home the last few days, been at the Wisp in Oakland Maryland with hubby at work.  So this is just how I left it.  Some things laid out before I left and working on others. This whats on the white desk, 3 cards that I made one for a friend and 1 for my mom the other for my mother-law.  The large tag I did for  Viva Las VegaStamps Monthly Challenge Submission. And the 2 old ladie tags are for the same thing. The horse tag is also for a friend.

But I have gotten my wall above this desk put into some kind or order and I'm happy with it from last week.. I cant get over how fast the week has went.
Then on the other side of the room is the big new desk and wall unit.  Not much going on over there. Looks like I did kinda clean it before I left.
And then last but not least I did get some of the stuff put a way on the wall behind it all. Tuff since this is such a tiny room .

Well friends Im getting there slow but sure and getting a few other things done too.
Thanks so much for stopping in and looking at my mess this week.
Bright blessing to you and yours

I love this .. and want to share it if I may.

New Tags

Well here is a shot of a few of the new tags I got done yesterday. They are on the cuties side. But I still think they will work.  They would be cute to color in also. Take a look and tell me what you think. They are better than my video.  lol

Want to share this site.

Ok you guys need to look at this awesome tag my daughter did for the Viva stamp challenge.  I just think it is awesome.  Look around and check out her blog she has some very pretty things on there.  She quite the talent for making things.

Where am I this week ?

Ok, well this is something totally new!  I know its not in good lighting but I did the best I could and hay at least it worked. For me that is a big plus all on its own. 
Ok sooo where am I?  I am in Oakland Maryland at the Wisp resort. Yep never been to a ski resort much less a golf place. All perks of my wonderful husband!  But looks like we won't be staying all week so I don't think we are going to have time to do anything.  :-(  But that may be good ... he want  to ride the seated coaster thru the woods. Sounds like fun but the zip line sounds fun too.  Booth Im not so sure I have the nerve to do.  I think the older I get the more leary I get.  Not sure if that is a real word but there it is.  Well lets post this and see if it really dose work.

Break time

In the middle of moving and changing and trying to figure out where to put what my brain went NO MORE!  So I sat down and made a card for my Mom. It was nice to just set and play with some colors again. I'm not good with change so this is a wee bit stressful on this girl. lol

The stamps in side are my new BoBunny's and yep I love them. The little girl, flowers and butterfly came with the Scrapsbook etc magazine that I also just got.

WOYWW : What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 218

WOYWW : What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 218 :
   I had lots of lovely comments to get to and Im so sorry but as you can see I have lost them all before I got done with them.  Good news is my daughter changed the setting so it should make it easer for people to leave a message and get it and all that good stuff.  To the people I didn't get back to, again I am so sorry.
Bright blessing to all.

WOYWW : What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 218

Good late morning.. this is my 2nd week  here on  WOYWW and look what you have made me do.. you and my Daughter.. WORK! And work a lot.  Not sure where to start. But here is a shot of my desk (s) as of 15 min ago.  then I will give you or try to give you a short run down of whats been going on.

Ok I wish I would of taken a before we started photo.. but just didn't think of it. But her is a clip of the mess we had to figurer out and the mess kinda of the room in the middle of moving things.

Now to me that's a lot of boards to figure out where they go. And that's not even all of them yet. But good news my daughter got it for Free for helping a friend move.

My Tera working very hard in this heat just to do this for me..Im so very blessed! But as you can see the bottom is on, and working around other things in the room was a real PAIN!
Ok most of it done..yippy!
 OK all done.. at least in place.. right WRONG
Changed our mind like females are known to do and put it on the other wall cause I like to work at the window.. we must be nuts.. two days of moving this stuff.
ok now it has found its home and so has the other desk.. and Sam our cat has picked his cubby too.
Now some how in doing this I even got that cover page from last week done and we have been car shopping till dark for the last few days.  So now its time to clean house, clean this room and try to getting things put away.  I just have a mess all over the place.  wish me luck.  Thank you for looking and Bright blessing to all of you  :-)
