Creating a beautiful life one mini at a time..........

Its Sunday morning here and the sun is shining. It has been cold and rainy the last few days so its lovely to have the sun back. Even if it brought with it the wind.
I have been playing with the clay again. I bought this wonderful Martha Stewart pie and tart book. It made me want to make the real thing so bad. It also inspired to make them in miniature. I have made cherry crumbles and pies before, Also blueberry but never apple so I tried some apple ones too. They have a little green to them as they are supposed to be granny smith apples. I even lit my apple pie candle while making these. Nothing inspires your creative soul more.
I think for today I will smile and not try to think of the things that have been troubling me so.
If we could all be together for some pie? That would be the best. I hope your day is giving you time to do things you like to do. Mini hugs!

Thought I would share with you some pictures from the play. I was happy to hear that you enjoy peeks at my real life too. I want to thank you for the oh so nice comments. I read every one of them. Really they make my day.
So this was such a fun little show. I can tell you they did a WONDERFUL job. Lots of singing a dancing. You couldn't help but smile. The girl who played Tracy....such talent. Even sounded just like her. The boy who played her mom adorable. I had the best weekend. Being with my kids and not thinking about anything else. My Emily had a small part but she didn't care she just had fun. There is a picture of her singing in the sweater and plaid dress, I also included a picture of Hannah and I just before we went in. Mini hugs friends. I hope you are having a nice weekend as well.

My favorite picture

I sometimes over think this blog thing. It is supposed to be fun. That is why I started it in the first place. Its mine and I can share what I want and say what I want when I want. So why do I worry so much. I thought I would share one of my favorite pictures I took of the bakeshop. Who cares that I already shared the shop. I don't always have to have something new. I'm still proud of this accomplishment. This took over a year to complete so I can enjoy it finished for awhile.
Life has been very busy here. My 2 youngest will graduate on June 3rd and this has me questioning what's next? I have been a mom for so long and I will always be a mom but I have to start letting go and its so hard. The hardest thing I have ever done.
I usually don't mix my real life with my mini life on the blog but hey real life is happening here and its hard not to mention it.
Emily is in the school play at school, They are doing the broadway play of " Hairspray" Starts tomorrow night. I can't wait. I will be there cheering these wonderful kids on all 3 nights.
Big changes are coming for me and I'm going to need to be very strong. I know I can do it.
I have some fun things coming in my miniature life so stay tuned. Anyone else going thru some tough life changes too. Just remember you are not alone. Mini hugs!
