Live your Bliss!

Happy Easter! Today, we are all headed over to my DF's (darling fiance') cousins house for Easter. Just a small group of us - 11, but always a good time. I have been so fortunate that my DF's family has always been so accepting of me and my children. We have been together for 12 years and the kids were very young then. He had never been married, no kids and well let's face it.......I was divorced with two kids. His family is like my own - they are my own. DF has been.......well, there are no words. We have been so lucky to have him in our lives. From the beginning, he has always went above and beyond for the kids. He has taken them camping, fishing, canoeing, baseball games, football games, school musicals, and school sports to mention a few. We experienced all the joys of parenting together, but we have also experienced some of the darkest points of parenting as well. A year and a half ago, my son went thru some really tough, tough, times. Fortunately, he is on the road back home. Bumpy? A ride that none of us ever want to take again, but thankful for my DF and his love and support.

On to something else.........this little bird cage was actually a tea candle holder that I picked up at Michael's. I decided to do something else with it. As you can see, I added a chipboard scroll, paperpunch flowers, dicut leaves and butterfly, buttons, hemp, ribbon and ink and that was just the top! The bottom where the candle should be; I added moss and little speckled eggs. At the bottom of the ribbon; I added a little tag with sentiment that reads "Live your Bliss". The rubberstamped sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink.

Well, time to go make the salad that I bringing today! I hope you all have a wonderful day with your family. Happy Easter. Cathy
