Am I Dreaming?...

Wahhhhhh, say it CAN'T be the last Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge?!   Well, sadly, it is, but we are going out w/ a very special post and a preview from The Greeting Farm today.

While I am sad to see the MTSC's come to a close, I completely respect Mercy's decision to move forward and am SO blessed to call her my friend forever.  Thankfully we already have our next 'playdate' set up or I'd be going through withdrawls.   Well, it's been a PLEASURE working with the Muses and so with that,  I bring you MTSC106...our final sketch:

Today at The Greeting Farm is also another preview day for our January release!  This set is the CUTEST!  It's called "Little Dreamer".  Ok, seriously?!?!  If this set had been around when my kids were babies, I'd have done a border with it.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the concept and sweetness of this design-DREAM BIG.  LOVE that.  It's what I want for ALL my kids.

That said, I made a "wish box" for us.  I thought it would be cute to write down our dreams/hopes/aspirations and have them tucked safe in a place where we can check in every once in a while and see our hard work and determination paying off as the days/months...even years go by.  Here is our "Wish Box", using LITTLE DREAMER:

I love this and cannot WAIT to see how it fills up!   Be sure to check out the other DT members posts today, including the Farmers on the TGF Blog AND Team Anya on the Club Anya Blog!  ONE OF US Farmers has a "Little Dreamer" set hidden on our blog today-winner will be announced tomorrow!  Until then...

xoxo.  MUCH. LOVE.  <3

:( I'm so sad Mercy's sketch challenge is done. If there was ever a challenge that I always went to if I needed a jump start it was that one. :( But I do understand. Onward and upward!

Gorgeous wish box Jess. I know your little ones are going to love that and you'll get tons of use out of it! Fabulous idea!

Awww this box is ADORABLE, and I love the idea behind it. Just wonderful. Ok I'm not smart enough to find particular labels on your blog (was trying to find the Inspired By posts!) so I'll just have to keep my eye out for future posts. Or, link me baby! :-)
