Counting My Many Blessings

"Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah" Psalms 68:19

Hello Dear Readers,
  I am definitely counting my blessings.  I have not been able to craft for months, and now I am back at it.  I am so blessed to have the use of my hands again after falling after Christmas and breaking both my wrists!  Two surgeries and implants of plates and screws in both wrists later, and lots of physical therapy, I am back!

Today I was inspired by  sketch #414 at Sketches In Thyme.  

I wanted document these little notepads I had made for our church gift  baskets.  I will be doing the photos of the baskets on another layout.  These papers and embellishments are from a me & my Big ideas  bought on clearance years ago!  So when  was looking or papers to go with my photos I came across it. I thought it worked well with the sketch, and I found  the big wooden arrow and the fabric hearts, and a heart that was a pin on the right in my stash.  I really liked this sketch, and decided to add it to the entries.
Be sure and click on the link above and check out the other participants.

I am so glad you stopped by.

I got excited when I noticed your blog had a post in my blog's sidebar of blogs that I have in a list. I'm glad to see you back online and crafting! I hope you're 100% healed with no lingering pain. Those are lovely notepads that you made for the church gift baskets. You are always very thoughtful and giving. Stay healthy and safe during this covid-19 situation.

How wonderful that you are now back. I'm super impressed and look forward to seeing what you come up with after your forced absence. Just in time for the stay at home order the county has given us, too (grin). This turned out great. You put a LOT into this spread, Sharon and I really love it. Again, so glad you are back.
