Today is National Inspiration Day!!!

What is better for inspiration than a new year?  Welcome 2017!  2016 started with such promise, and has ended with so much ANGST!  I don’t like to be negative, and try to find the positive in everything!  This sentiment sums it up!  I was leafing through the Stampin’ Up! annual catalog and found this stamp set.

Feather Together Stamp Set $17

I love feathers and I plan to make a card using the feathers and the sentiment together – for my first card of 2017.

How will you celebrate National Inspiration Day  – and what is your inspiration for 2017?

Happy Birthday Elvis!!!

ElvisOk, maybe this isn’t REALLY Elvis, but believe me, it’s as close as you are going to get these days!  (Well, unless you believe that EL isn’t really DEAD)

Every year on the first  weekend of December, I attend an event called “Night of 100 Elvises”, aka “NO100E”.  It is fabulous FUN, and folks get dressed up in their 50’s garb, HON Hair (you’ve got to be a Baltimore-on to know what this is…), and sometimes even the JUMPSUIT.  This gentleman IS one of the entertainers (Elvis impersonators)- who cover the Elvis songs all night, along with local bands doing the same.  Open bar, free food and, the pi-ece de résistance – Grilled Cheese, Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwiches.  This has been held in Baltimore’s Lithuanian Hall for over 15 years, and those Lithuanians have THEIR own special beverage, Vititus, a very SNEAKY Honey Liquer.  ’nuff said about THAT!  If you want to join me in 2014 – check out the website: www.nightof100elvises.com

Elvis 2

On that night every year “My Name is ELVIS!”
