  1. ~an organized desk would be quite nice...or maybe a crafty table...for seeking a room is out of my reach...as of this moment you can not walk through our front door...one must enter through the side door as it seems my muse has gotten the best of me and created a national paper disaster...what started off as organizing my craft closet...yes...closet...its the best that i can do to utilize the space in our home...well not so much orgainzing has happened instead i kind of got swept away and started playing or should i say mess making!!! a wee bit off the subject but a desk was what i have been pondering...one just for me!!!

    wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead...much love light and blessings~

  12. that break up kit is great...so funny! during one particularly sad break up, my kit consisted of a box of dark chocolates. i knew things were really bad when i woke up the morning after the break up, in my bed, clutching the 3/4 eaten box. and now, i can look back and laugh!

  14. Love that break-up kit ... gosh, sometimes I forget how horrifying a broken heart can be. That print is so true and yet so sad ... the world and some of the people in it can be an illogical place.

    PS. I'll be joining you in your new space. :)

    1. i know, horrid sometimes. this is just the kind of gag-gift for when the person has done grieving and is ready for a laugh.

  15. that poster about the spoon is really great.
    it is apparent in so many parts of out world today...like how much work and money (and pollution) it takes to grow and ship food on this planet...
    jeez....we all need to wash our spoons and grow our own food.

  17. Powerful book you're reading. He himself was a disquiet soul, a troubled mind... but brilliant. Genius.
