My week has been busy with me organizing all around my house. I found myself happy when some of the rooms in my house. That means I have to change things around. I have this saying my home needs to be Mel/Mel friendly. I am big on balance so, when things are not balanced, it makes me feel uneasy.  

Well, let me grab a cup of coffee and meet you in the craft room.

Word of the Day

     The word of today is one value. After what is happening at the 2021 Olympics’ I am questioning if we know our value. And if we value other people. Do not get me started about how the delta variant. We must be more caring not just for our families but for everyone. Mental health and Covid are real. We all have known of someone who it has affected. It is time to remove our heads out of the cloud and call to action. It may just take only one of us to do something to affect the outcome. Let’s stop being the problem and help find a solution. 

     It is always a blessing to share my card and thoughts with me. The time we spend is the highlight of my week, and if this is your first time joining me, please come back. Please be safe and find time to craft and create until me meet again.
