Happy Autumn dear friends!
I am excited to share that as the Fall begins,
I am in the beginning stages of designing
A fabulous new creative space to call my own!

My computer is now set up,
My Internet connection is live,
And for the first time,
I am writing from The Creative Corner
With my faithful friend Legend!

Photos will be forthcoming
As soon as I find the cable I need to
Upload photos to my computer!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

  1. It must feel wonderful to get settled in with a new creative space. LOVE your cat photo! 🙂 Deb @

    • Thanks Deb – Legend was SO happy to finally see my desk and computer set up! He is usually my companion cat during the day and I know he has missed hanging out in our special spot!

      My husband just installed some shelves for me today so this week, I can begin to dig through my boxes and start to bring order to my life.
      It really feels like Christmas opening those boxes – I feel like I’m going on a treasure hunt!

      Now if only we can find the camera cable (which, unfortunately, my husband packed, so it could be ANYWHERE…)

      Have a fabulous week! 🙂

  2. Meryl says:

    Oh do those baked goods look …good!!! Thanks for hosting and have a super week.

  3. Thanks so much for the feature!!! I’ve had my eye on these pumpkins for a year and was so happy to be able to share how to make them.

  4. I love muffins! They freeze great, too! Just wrap each muffin in foil and put them all in a ziplock freezer bag and freeze. They’ll keep up to 3 months in the freezer. I write the name of the muffins and date I need to eat them by so they don’t go to waste. Then when I want a fresh homemade muffin. I grab one out of the bag, remove foil, and microwave for 30 seconds. Delish!

  5. Moving house can be so stressful. I’m glad that you are enjoying the new adventure and I’ll pray that you find that cable. 🙂

    Thanks again for hosting a fabulous hop! My daughter and I were inspired by Adrianne’s beautiful beaded bangles. I’ve linked up my “Joyful Poetry” in spot 26.

    Tina – mom of 4 and author of 5 blogs

    • Thanks for sharing your “Joyful Poetry” Christina – I look forward to reading it this week!

      I LOVE Adrianne’s projects and thought those bangles were especially beautiful! Handmade jewelry is just the best!

    • You would not believe how happy Legend was when I opened up shop, so to speak…
      Even though the space and layout is VERY different, he recognizes my stuff, and it was like being reunited with an old friend!

  12. Dawn says:

    Oh, I love that picture of Legend! Glad to hear you are settling in and feeling connected again. Can’t wait to see your new creative place. So love Patsy at Heartworks. Ya know Ramona, you just really bless me with your Monday posts! BUT I wanted to link up Friday with a Fall post and just never got around to finishing it…but how I love Fall. Love and Hugs, Ramona from the East Coast !

    • Thank you Dawn… you are always such an encouragement and inspiration to me!

      Feel free to link up your Fall posts all week at Friendship Friday…
      I keep everything open for several days for the latecomers!

      I hope that camera cable turns up soon… I am feeling rather lost without it!
