I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

"Talk To You Soon!"

Before signing off for a few days (due to knee surgery) I wanted to touch base. Sitting here listening to the rain I thought how ironic is it that 7 years ago today another hurricane just about took out the coast of our little state and today...well, here we go again. We were without power for 5 days..and it was awful. I can't imagine how terrible it was for those who were without power for weeks, without food and water and who lost everything they had. Please, add Mississippi and Louisiana to your prayers. While Isaac wasn't nearly as devastating as Katrina to most, it is still devastating to many.

Just a few more odds and ends until we chat again...
I have worked on my collection of pine needle baskets this summer. I found these two miniature ones this year and have enjoyed them so much. You don't just find these baskets around any corner and I felt like I struck gold with them! I wonder if anyone else collects pine needle baskets?
I recently saw an advertisement for covered match boxes. The price? Try $16 per box!
Couldn't believe my eyes! So I sat down and covered about 15 boxes for almost free.
I bought a bunch of the little boxes at Dollar Tree for $1 and I had all the trimmings.
These would be cute as place cards or accompanying a pretty gift candle.
Last but certainly not least. I "ran into" a flower weaving thingy at Hob Lob
a few weeks ago and couldn't resist. I found the pillow reduced awhile
back. Gathering purple yarns and beads, I dolled up the little gray
tucked pillow!
Why do you begin liking the color purple when you get older?

Until next time,

Praying for a speedy recovery, Angela! I'm finding myself drawn to purple recently, too. I'm resisting it tho'! LOL! Love your flower pillow.
