More Inspiration....

So, I 'll continue on the Finding Inspiration.... Today I find inspiration in the face of my neighbor. She is a grandmother that walks her grandchildren to school, we chat everyday mostly small talk. Every morning we go through a little routine. I say "Good Morning, How are you?" She replies "Blessed - Good Morning to you too". This morning her answer was a bit different today she replied with a glow on her face and a twinkle in her eye. "Blessed - because my son and his wife -- after many years of trying are having a baby!! Nothing in the world could make me more happy!! I am truely blessed. They are truely blessed!" Her joy inspired me to look at my blessings.
Today is my son's birthday-- seven years ago today. I was overjoyed to have my little boy in my arms. I had waited for him a long time. You see I too tried many times to have more children. We - had our first child, then tried many years to have more. Nothing - until one day we were blessed with our second child. They were both girls - truely loved girls! As we all know girls are all about their dads. So, when I finally had my little boy -- All I could hope for was that he would be all about me. He didn't disappoint! He is really all about mom giving him some lovin'.
So, I felt my neighbors joy from deep down inside. I really got me in a creative mood. Who knows what will come out of this day.
Now on a fun note...... I spoke the other day about my daughter drawing me a little picture that gave me inspiration. Here is her drawing.

Here is what I did with it. I made a Fiskafairy. Fiskateer Fairy!

Here she is with her crafting apron and Fiskateer Scissors.

Fun isn't!?! I really like the way it turned out. I think She'll have to make a stop at the online crop the Fiskateers are having this weekend. Maybe sprinkle some Fiskadust and give some little prize away.... Join us in the fun.

So, I hope you find some inspiration today. If you be sure to let me know all about it.

Adorable! Amazing! Blessed Indeed!

I too, know that feeling of trying to have children for a long time and then finally success! First one, a sweet baby girl Chloe, then a year later, a miscarriage and a year after that, my momma's boy Jacob! I thought I knew love but there isn't anything like the love between a child and its parent.

FiskaFairy is beautiful...hope to be able to catch her appearance this weekend!
