A little TLC...


Hey everyone!

I can't believe it's Thursday already....yikes! We have a super busy weekend coming up with some school activities, Pom registration (already! for next season!), and all kinds of stuff...although I got some MAJOR cleaning/organizing under my belt. Oh, no, NOT for my house! My stamp area, sillies! LOL! It's shaping up to be more functional and less mess, so I am happy about that.
I have a card for you today featuring this SUPER SWEET "My Sweet Lili" image from Stampavie by the amazing Sarah Kay. Isn't this stamp just absolutely darling? It reminds me of my girls and their favorite teddies.
Actually, it reminds me a lot of how I felt as a child with some of my stuffed animals too. I was going through an old box that my Mom gave me about a year or two ago from up in their attic with some albums, my flute from high school, etc. and in it was my CareBear. The first one I ever got (ha ha yes, I was a child of the 80's LOL!). I am now in my 30s and put that bear on my bed when I make it in the morning. Isn't that silly? To me, it just symbolizes a part of my childhood that I will always want to hang on to. Being sick this week and having little ones getting over this awful cold/flu also makes me think of this, because my Dad would always bring me a little something home from work when I wasn't feeling well. The Carebear was one of those things. One time it was "Magic Sand"...do you remember that? OMG SOOOO 80's! It's the little things, like being taken care of when we're sick, and our favorite childhood toys, that come flooding back to me simply from looking at this image. That is really something, isn't it?
Be sure to check out the Stampavie website for a complete list of stores all over the world where you can purchase these adorable and beautifully detailed stamps. Have a wonderful day!
Hugs,
Jessica :)
