Happy Almost Spring!

 Wow, the weather was beautiful here today!  I can't WAIT for spring to arrive!   I took the snowman display down in the dining room, and added some springy things instead ~

Close up of the two little bitsy gnomes, they are so dang cute ~

Close up of some bunnies for Easter ~

We decided to get out some of the lawn furniture today, and do some yard clean up.  I worked on cleaning some of the front area, here is an after shot  ~

 This is the other side of the walkway, and what the right side looked like when I started.  GEEZ, those dang leaves were hard to clean out of the plants!!! ~

We are having 5 large trees cut down, to try to open up the pool to some sun, and to cut down on yard work and leaves.  The tree pictured closest to the driveway is staying, the other 3 are hopefully gone soon ~

A view from the other side of the yard (the tree on the far right is the one staying, the other 3 are going) ~

My beautiful daughter had a birthday a little over a week ago.  She wanted a sewing machine for her birthday, her first sewing machine!  I was as happy as she was I think.  :)  ~

We had to change the day we got together to celebrate her birthday, so it was definitely a casual one.  I wanted to make fun cupcakes for her cake, but did not have time.  Instead she got a yummy cake, but not a fancy schmancy one.  Cooper is helping his mumma blow out the candles here, can you tell? ~ 

I am working on a new mini album and will be posting pics and a tutorial on the bind-it-all blog in the next month.  I am also working on boatloads of birthday cards, gotta rebuild my stash!  I hope to have some pics to share with you next week.  If I can move after all the yard work!  :)
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful spring like week!  Have a joyful and creative week too ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
