"It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living."

Images of our day. The last few days I've been making jewelry. Nothing fancy, but it fills an urge in me to create. I usually find myself doing this when gifts are needed and I know that the recipient would enjoy what I make for them. S and I also found ourselves making our Easter cards this year. We had so much fun in doing so. The images that I drew for my cards came straight from here. I just mixed things up a bit. I also highly recommend this and this by Sachiko Umoto. I have to admit that I bought her books for myself, fully intending that S will get much use out of them when she is a bit older. I know that I would have adored them as a child.  The wee one was awfully quiet in the other room and when I peeked in on her, I found her applying sparkly flower stickers to each of her little toes. Pictures were certainly needed. Lastly, the image of S is her looking out the window at a birdy that she spotted. She is always calling me to the window to see the birdies and the squirrels.
