Mom's Birthday 2

Wow...a busy busy week...but this weekend will be filled with family and fun...with my Mom's Birthday surprise....I am thinking her party will be Paris inspired....you know me and Paris....lol....

I also wanted to end the week with a few of my fun updates for you....that cottage commission I mentioned earlier on is complete....the two oars will be heading to their new home today....I love wood and pyrography projects.....

and some more exciting news ....I am working on a new book with author Katrina Foraker...if you love cute little pugs...then this will be a perfect book for you...at any age....

Well I will be off-line for a few days to take a breather and celebrate my Mom's Birthday.....so I will catch up with you all when I've eaten enough cake and enjoyed some wonderful laughs with my amazing family and friends....

Hugs and Happy Friday!!!!
Diana
