~NEW Site---NEW Dollie~

Yes sirree! Finally, a NEW Dollie! The first one this year as a matter of fact. Where does the time go? Tomorrow is already March 1 and this is my first handmade for the year. I can tell you where my time goes and it is generally in the books...

The NEW site is ~The Prim Nest~ I am so glad to be a part of The Prim Nest. I needed something extra to do, right? Not really, but I do really miss creating and I thought I would be able to create here and there. The site will update on the 1st and 15th of each month. I am always going to try to have something new for the 1st of each month and if I get something finished for the 15th, well then that is a bonus!

This is Sweet Lily. All of her lil extra's can be removed and then just be a sweet everyday dollie. I had lots of fun bringing her to life and I do hope that you will stop by and take a peek. I must go and get back to the books and my homework, which seems to be never ending. That's okay, I am up for the challenge and already at my halfway point for the semester! Can I get a whoot, whoot!! Toodles for now, ~Tonya


What's the Word Bird?

I must *CHIRP* about a NEW Site that is going to OPEN on March 1st!
How very exciting! There are a lot of wonderful artists on the Prim Nest site, but you will have to wait until March 1, to find out who the are. I know, no fair *smirk*

Another thing that I must *CHIRP* about is the Prim Nest blog. They have a little bit of a give-a-way going on. You will have to stop by the Prim Nest blog to see what can be won.

I thought I would also share with you a little bit of spring? We DID have some nice spring "teaser" weather here and the birds were chirping. It was wonderful. We had weather near the 50's, then old man winter had to rear it's ugly head again! Yuppers, a winter storm hit over the weekend and we are still in the midst of the storm. We have had a little bit of everything. We have had rain, sleet, wind, snow, thundering, and pretty cold temperatures.

How very disheartening. I was so excited and looking forward to spring, but I knew in my heart-of-hearts that winter was not done. I have had a little bit of time for creating, which has been long overdue. I immensely enjoy creating, but really do not have the time to create with my studies for college.

I hope you enjoy your day. Stay warm, if you are in the midst of winter all over again *sigh* As for me, I am fighting bronchitis or something close to it. You just have to love the joys of winter and the cold season. I don't let it get me down thou...well, not normally! Cheers, ~Tonya


Ever thought about....

Have you ever thought about the ripple effect you could cause with your life had you made one single decision differently. Have you ever thought about the lives you have touched by a certain gesture you made or by a certain random act of kindness.

I wonder if others think about how they may have touched my life. But does anyone ever think about if they did just one thing differently, how it could cause a ripple effect in their life or possibly in others. I tend to ponder about certain things lately and all the "what if's." How can one not think about the "what if's" in their life.

Certain times in your life you can't help but wonder...I will leave you with a poem that I felt was so appropriate for this post.

The Ripple Effect

Life sometimes seems
So short
That it existed
Only in our dreams
But just like the stone
Thrown upon the pond
The ripples and influence
Reach far beyond
One life can touch those
Whom she or he never knew
In special ways
Which bring hope and renew
Our belief that life
Always has meaning
Whether short or long
It's all in believing
