I see you are a fellow SU! demonstrator.

I relax by crafting with my 5 yr old grandaughter. She loves to crank the handle on the cuttlebug. It is such a delight to see the look on her face when the finished product comes through.

Make yourself a GREAT day!

Lilacs are definitely my favorite flower. My mom had a lilac bush in the backyard where I grew up and each summer after it bloomed she would cut it back and fill the house full of vases of them and the scent filled the whole house--it reminds me of summer.
