Goodness gracious where has the time gone? I haven't been a very good blogger lately. This Spring has been a little extra busy this year. The kids are keeping me busy with school events and such. I'm hoping that this Summer, we will all be able to slow down a bit. I'm dreaming of a week spent at the beach, on the porch watching (and listening) to the waves, my latest stitching project in hand.

I have some exciting news to share with all of you.

I have been invited to be featured on Fabulous Friday (today) over on the Where Women Create blog.

Words can't describe how flattered and honored I am. At the same time, it's a bit scary to put myself out there---it is unfamilar territory for me. I'm used to hanging out in the background, not wanting attention drawn to me.

But this is an amazing thing. It is great exposure for Posies On Parade, and if I want more people to smile when they look at a Petunia, I need to venture out of my comfort zone, right?

So, thanks so much Paige for finding me!

If any of you get a quick second, wander over there and check it out and enter to win a Petunia Posie of choice and a Posie Pocket.

There are many fabulous women who do such creative things featured in past posts--definitely worth a visit. Grab a glass of ice tea, kick back and enjoy.

On another note. The momma flower and baby in the photo above was inspired by Mother's Day. I had this idea in my head for a while and have been experimenting with this--trying to work the pattern just right. I had visions of a whole bunch of mom flowers, baby flowers, best friend flowers and sister flowers to add to the shop. But time got away from me (again) and they need to stand just right without falling over. I'm still working on it.

My wish--- for a most special Mother's Day to all the moms, moms to be, and grandmas out there. I hope you get to spend the day with the ones who love you most.

To my mom, I wish we can be together, sipping a cold drink on your deck. We will be together in our hearts and just know that I consider myself the luckiest daughter in the world. You have taught me how to be the best mom I can be. For all that you have done for me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for being my mom. I love you.

Have a beautiful weekend.

Caught your interview on Creative Women blog so I wandered over to yours. Your creations are wonderful. You are so talented and creative.
I love your mom's words, such awesome support. She's a very proud momma and her best mother's day gift will be you.
Happy mother's day to you too!
