*N* is for *Nuture* and *News!*

*N* is for *Nurture the Child Within* ... I love that affirmation.....just need to remember to give that little girl that is inside my heart *Nest* a hug once in awhile....

*Nestle*...what a great word...reminds me of being a snug as a bug in bed with big fluffy pillows

I put 1982 on this *Nesting Cottage* as that was the year my one and only daughter was born...

Now...on to the *NEWS!*.......

I was thrilled to pieces seeing my work in this magazine....sorry the pictures are sideways...I dunno what happened...I tried to turn them around, but, I guess blogger likes them this way!

this is a sneeky peek at a new cuff design...I was contacted by Belle Amoire to send in more!


sigh.....thats another good quote to wear on my wrist to remind me that "All is Good"
Also, did you happen to notice my *NEW* blog makeover???.......Karen...The Graphics Fairy....waved her magic wand and made all my dreams come true!!! I think she did a fantastic job ...I have a *NEW* shoppe that she also designed for me!!! I just love it! I will have *new* creations in the shop by the end of June, so, stay tuned!!!

Heart Hugs,
