May Happiness fill your HEART...

Isn't that just the SWEETEST sentiment?

Leave it to UNITY to come up with this and MANY more wonderful, heartfelt phrases in the NEW February Kit of the Month!

I am SO in love with this kit-have you guys seen the images?  Check 'em out HERE to see the whole kit and to SIGN UP if you haven't yet!!  You definitely won't be sorry!

I was feeling a little under the weather on Tuesday and didn't get to post with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  It's an AWESOME sketch, so we definitely hope you'll play along!  Here is MTSC59:

I used the new February KOTM from UNITY, called {NOTHIN' but BLUE SKIES} for this card, using Mercy's sketch and also this fabulous "Love Me Do" DP from My Mind's Eye that I've been itching to open up since it arrived!   The colors are so bold, bright and fun and I thought it went perfectly with a lot of the images in this new kit!  My stitching is a little off, but heck so am I...so it's perfect then, right?  LOL!   I really do enjoy the look it gives even if it's not perfect.  A work in PROGRESS...just like me ;)

Gotta love THURSDAYS as ALL the Unity girls are posting today and I can't wait for you to see what they have whipped up for you, too  Check out the UNITY BLOG to start out, and then don't forget to visit my girls:


Well, that's it for me for now...I'll be back with TWO fabulous (I hope!) posts tomorrow-Farm Fresh Friday with The Greeting Farm and Friends with Flair Friday from Unity...that DEFINITELY puts the F's in Friday and FUN!!!  See you then?  Hope so...thanks so much for stopping by!

xoxo
Jess :)

Technology really has become completely integrated to our existence, and I am fairly confident when I say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.


I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of downloading our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could see in my lifetime.
