"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness!
Whoa, try saying that really fast
a couple of times in a row.
"Where does time go?" 

Well, something new has "Bloomed" 
  for me and I want to tell you about it.

 I have been busy creating, and
staying up late and creating, and then
creating in my dreams too....and I'm
still creating, but ran out of some materials
and am waiting for them to come in the mail.
Whew! That was a lot to say!  I think I'm on a
sugar high because I just rewarded myself with 
some ice cream.  I rewarded myself because
my Etsy Shop is finally open!!

Buy Handmade

You can click on my Etsy mini to check out my 
shop or you can also click on my haveadaisy.com
pink button and it will take you there.

My son-in-law,  Stevan  designed and made my 
button and haveadaisy header and helped me
set up with Etsy. He is the greatest and he told
me he did all of this because he wanted to
help me make my dreams come true!  
Wasn't that the sweetest thing ?
If I had a son of my own, I would hope he would
be just like him.
So if you need a web design, blog button, header
or whatever, please keep him in mind.

You know, it's kind of scary to put yourself and 
your dreams out there.  I mean,
not everyone is going to like what  you create
or what you stand for or what you are
passionate about. You may not even be successful
in the world's eye.  
But I do know WHO created me and 
who created YOU and that He knew exactly
what He was doing when he put certain,
talents, gifts, and desires in us.
What is important is that we enjoy doing,
and being US, just for Him.
Enjoy being YOU, the glorious you that God
created in His image and the one and only that 
can fulfill the purposes He put you on this earth for.

"It matters not if the world has heard
Or approves or understands
The only applause we've meant to seek 
Is that of nail-scarred hands."
                                           B.J. Hoff

"For I know the plans I have for you, 
declares the Lord, plans to prosper you
and not to harm you, plans to give 
you hope and a future."
                                          Jeremiah 29:11

"Since you are like no other being ever
created since the beginning of time, 
you are incomparable."
                                           Brenda Uelan

Isn't it great to know you are incomparable?

YOU sure are a big blessing to me and
I'm so very thankful for you!

Good morning Lee Ann, I am so proud of you!!!! I know it's not easy on many different levels setting this up. I still have not begun to work on mine.

Well done my friend!!

Lee Ann, Your post brings tears to my eyes. Sometimes I guess we all struggle with our "uniqueness"...it helps to be reminded that it is a GIFT from Him to be a "one & only", and that as long as He is pleased, we have nothing to fear.
So glad you share your unique beauty with us.
Love & Laughter...

So proud of you LeeAnn! Way to go!!! You have a very nice son-in-law. I can't wait to check our your Etsy store after this. I opened mine, but haven't "announced" it yet. I still have a few more things to add. I'm so encouraged by your post, though. It is a bit scary, but what matters is living your life to please God. And using the talents he's given us to his glory, right? :) I may know you just through you blog, but you are such a dear friend. Congrats again! What a long comment. :) I'm just so stinkin' excited for you!!! :) From bull rididng to Etsy stores, you get em! :)

Congrats Mom G!
Glad that the store is open and that you are making sales! That's just awesome!
I hope you're bringing your items to our place this weekend so you can continue to sell even while you're here!

If your readers want to add that nifty little haveadaisy.com button to their blogs and have it link to your Etsy store, here's the code -

...nevermind - can't post the code in the comments-section - i'll e-mail it to you and I think you'll be able to just paste it into a post if you want!
