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

    Thanks for the party.

  11. I’m so sorry Ramona that I cannot back link to your post this week. I had an issue and had to finish up in ‘text’ and an hour later…I was able to publish. Arrgh! But….I don’t want to mess up my formatting all over again. I hope you’ll understand…I always do link back…this is an exception.
    Hope your day was lovely and filled with JOY!

      Thanks for letting me know Diane – not a problem! My internet has acted up all weekend! No access most of Saturday and today? The connection is only holding for a few minutes at a time! It senses when “techie dad” is not around!

      Have a blessed week!

    Happy mother’s Day! 🙂 Although I get confused as I thought there already was a mother’s day this year. 🙂 I guess each country has it’s own date for that.

I’ll be asking about your book reviews soon for the June issue of the Ruby magazine, so be thinking of one or two that we can include.

    Your paper creations just reminded me of the yearbooks/journals that we used to have in the VN schools. They were more like journals passed around by friends, and they would create beautiful paper designs or drawings…somethings don’t change…
    It’s awesome to know that the minds were just as savvy back then, even with less choices and tools of course. Have a wonderful Monday. 🙂
