We could hardly live without the magic of a few good friends...

I am part of all that I have met;Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world, whose margin fades forever and forever when I move.
~Tennyson's "Ulysses"

I took a few minutes last night before bed to try to visit a few friends. I stopped by my friend Jullie's site only to find wonderful magical things.

Jullie always has things of wonder and beauty on her site but this one was exactly what I needed to escape... I have spent too much time in the kingdom lately mourning my work situation and complaining about soulless. It is time for some magic....

My friend Suzanne's team of docs are indeed very wise in their treatment of her. It is not good to dwell in dark places too long... and I'm following their advice for her. So let me introduce you to...

Marilyn Scott-Waters

Amazing giving woman and this is such a magical place. Paper toys to print and play, and even though my girlhood days are long gone, and I have no little feet to pitter patter around my house, I was delighted just the same. I have placed the link above and in my sidebar.
Thank you Jullie for your ever constant inspiration!


These are paper fishes that I will print and put together. Aren't they darling! I can just see them blowing on my patio just in time for summer.




She also is a children's book author and has wonderful stories and characters for you to print. So perfectly awesome. Most of you know how much I love to play with paper. I have been folding paper since the children where small... so wistful memories of folding paper cranes and laughing until our bellies hurt came to lift my spirits last night. I think the most wonderful thing about Marilyns sharing is that it is not just for children, and although I only have a couple of days left I am going to put a few of her things together for my beloved staff members. I have made paper things for them before, just a little something yummy and was delighted in how much they liked them. All of them still have the little paper creations on their desk. Marilyn also has holiday creations and the St. Patrick Day items are just in time. I do hope you find as much delight in this site as I, and stop by and give Jullie a shout, you'll get lost in her wonderland as well... Just what the Dr. ordered.

Hey Keke,

Thank you for sharing these...I have some pattering feet that will enjoy. I've just finished organizing my sewing/craft area...so much inspiration in completing that task! You seem to be happy which makes me very happy! Finding the joy in life! Saying yes instead of sorry, I can't make it! Pugs lying in sunspots! All joy... :o)

Hugging you,
Sue

Hey Keke. I'm so sleepy that I'm not even going to attempt to read your post and make that the first thing I do tomorrow afternoon when I finally rise again. I've been trying to get over here for 2 days. But I wanted you to know I'm thinking of you everyday and wanted to wish you a BIG HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY!!!! May the luck of the Irish be with you today all day and everyday after. I love you Dear Friend! Big Green Hugs...Tracy :)
