Come Sit By Me A While: New Ways,New Days and Bright Horizons. .

Hello everyone; so nice to be here with you today again. I have been busy these past days creating my new project Erin's Box Of Secrets .

We thought of so many names but Dai came up with this name Erin's Box Of Secrets and hey presto it was spot on !!!

I create my Greetings Cards, Bookmarks, Party Invitations , Reward Charts and so many more .

Any further ideas would be so greatly appreciated.

Below I have included some cards and inside messages ; I have also included just the covers of many others.

I would like to add there that these cards will also be available in card form and not just online.

I think that to receive these in card form is much nicer than just online and to me they become something more special in their true form.

So the choice will be yours !!

Also we have had additions to our family ; Tabatha (Tabs) and her kitten Megan (Meg).Tabs was found in a hedge about 30 miles from here and she'd had five kittens ;four of which were dead. As it happened we were looking for two cats but couldn't believe it when we heard of someone who wanted a home for Tabs(around 1 year old) and Meg (now around 8 weeks old) .

A lady called Wendy at the Cat Rescue Home didn't want them separated so home they came last Sunday .In the morning we bought a new cat bed; a scratch post; litter tray;some toys and cat food.

In the short time they have been with us they are giving so much joy and have certainly filled that gap in our lives. They play like two kittens but then Tabs will become a responsible Mum again as she reprimands and cleans her baby.

Tabs has taken to sitting by me on the computer desk a I write away !!!Or will sit on the window sill looking out ;obviously they cannot go out yet as they are so new and also need to be vaccinated the first due in two weeks.

During this next week I am setting up my web site and will let you know when it is up and running.

If all this isn't enough excitement a few days ago my friend Christina M Castro has put my song 'Butterfly Of Wonder' to music ;a song I wrote honouring my beautiful Erin.

Below is the link to Christina singing this song and I cannot thank her enough ;this is so touching !!

Right take your drinks and snacks and let us enjoy this morning sunshine.

Here we go !!!

It would be a delight to receive any one of these creations, Eddy. There is just nothing like receiving a card to treasure. It is nice to receive greetings on line but it is not the same as having a card someone has made especially for us.

Thank you for sharing these lovelies with us.

I let the song play as I read and enjoyed your cards.

Angels and hugs and love on the way this morning ps

I love this, "Erin's Box of Secrets"! You are so very creative, and I wish you all the success in the world! We just got a new little kitty, and one of our granddaughters named him George. LOL He is so cute too.

I love C M Castro's song put to your lovely words!

Very beautiful all around.

Voted up ++++ and sharing

Dear Sweet Eddy,

Every time I come to your pages I feel like I am allowed a moment away and enter some beautiful world you create. To have a heart like yours and be so talented and creative is truly a gift and what magic you create! I love your creativity; your cards and writing are beautiful and so inspiring. How perfect 'Erin's Box Of Secrets'; my heart smiled.

You and Christina really created something amazing in that beautiful song of yours; she did a very lovely job with it as well.

I love your calendar too... I think you should continue making those. Imagine, creating excitement for other, every month of the year!

Voted up and so many others, sharing too!

Have a wonderful day, beautiful heart!

Good luck in your new business, Eddy! The art is very attractive and the greetings are lovely. The business has a great name, too! I'm so glad that you have two new additions to the family in the form of Tabs and Meg, and that Christina created a song from your poem. That was a lovely gesture.

Eddy, I am blown away by your creativity. Not only are you a beautiful writer of prose and poetry--you're also a master craftsperson. Excellent! Tell me, are your cards printed on regular paper, or do you use a special card stock? Does this take up a lot of printing ink? Just asking as a matter of practical consideration in doing something similar someday. I am very grateful that you shared this with us. Aloha, my friend!

Great Hub, Eddy. I am very happy that the song for your poem for Erin turned out well. I see a potential in your creativity. Every special event that occurs in my private duty client's life is celebrated with homemade cards that we make together. So the loving touch you use for each greeting is an appreciation for the love and beauty within you. With a busy home of kitty cats, grandchildren and a garden to tend to, I can see where you receive your inspiration. Always I am happy to treat you with a song. You've inspired me to develop my artistic abilities too. Thanks for sharing.

These cards are just brilliant, Eddy. I would love any one of them. My own efforts are not at all similar, but my friends love them anyway! That is the main thing isn't it? Good luck with your beautiful new business, dear lady!

I listened to the beautiful song and it really touched my heart. Your cards are absolutely wonderful as well as this beautiful hub. Each of your cards is made with so much love and creativity. I love the name 'Erin's Box of Secrets'. It honours your daughter Erin. In all your creative works a part of her will always be there. I wish you a lot of success in your new business and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your great talent.
