Today was completely wonderful! My best friend who I've known for many moons delivered her very first! Lily Grace made her grand appearance at 10:04 am, she weighed in at a whopping 9 lbs. 12 oz. and 21" long...my, my, I believe it was time for her to show her beautiful face whether she was ready or not :-) The delivery went smooth...Cesarean of course. We were all so excited to meet her, especially her mama and daddy! They both have waited and prayed for this day for a long time...God truly blessed all of us this morning! Of course my 4 J's couldn't get enough of her...they LOVE babies :-) My honey couldn't get enough of her either...good thing we took care of that situation a loooong time ago or he would be trying for another! We love her dearly, and we're all so very happy we've finally got to meet her.

Camping again...I can't help sharing a little about this trip over the mountains. It was soooo beautiful and sunny, we actually started to sweat and had to change into our shorts one day, YIPEE! We were very excited about that. The pictures above are the beginning of a hike up Sweat'n Hill...I didn't feel quite right about posting the pictures after the hike...not pretty, but we did make it and I have pictures to prove it! The view from the tip-top of the hike is amazing especially with Old Glory flying high...I think camping is fast becoming a habit for the Watts Crew :-)

Summer are you ever going to visit us here in the beautiful Northwest? I keep asking this question. It's so hard to be inspired when I'm in desperate need of sunlight. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous...I took some snapshots of my very pretty white garden. Today I'm sad to say that the sun has once again deserted us and the clouds have settled in. I am thankful that there is no rain...yet. We're all keeping our fingers and toes crossed that the rain will stay at bay and we can have a sunny camping trip this weekend!
About my all white garden...I decided to have one big flower bed in our backyard that is completely white. At first people thought it was a bad idea...that I would get really tired of the white...maybe that it would become humdrum, I don't know. All of my peeps seem to feel the need to advise me on my decisions quite often :-) At last I can speak boldly and say, "You were all wrong" I love my white garden and I'm so happy I followed my instincts! Some of my flowers have just a touch of pink to them...thinking the flower would be white when I bought them. Thankfully I didn't end up with blue, purple, or red flowers popping out. I do have other flower beds that I can transfer the colored flowers to, but I haven't had to do any of that yet, whew! These roses and peonies are just a couple of my fav's...enjoy!

These are some purses I've been working on this past week. The first bag I used a leather belt for the strap and Posh fabric by Moda. One of my favorite gal-pals turned the big "30" and I wanted to make her something special. We celebrated last night with her and her family. We had a blast...and she loved her purse. That's what makes crafting and creating so special for me...I love to share it all with the people I care most about! Happy 30th La-Te-Da...hope it was a good one :-)
