Could you do me a teensy favour? Friday, you must remind me that I'm slated to be a guest in the July, summer-flavoured Point of View. Since making babies I have an atrocious memory, and I'd hate to forget because it's gonna be pretty darn swell. If you could do that for me I'd be ever so grateful. And I don't like telling secrets out of school, but you know the photo above? Well, it's a little taste of my contribution... It's colourful. Just as I like it.

And talking of colouration, do you see the paper lanterns below? They travelled all the way from Pakistan, suffered through our country-wide postal service strike, and finally arrived at my home here in Canada relatively intact.

They are handmade by the sweet Khadija of Creative Mind. I won her giveaway a ways back and these are my winnings. All the way from Pakistan!!! Amazing! I am just lucky. Aren't they pretty? The colours vibrate gloriously when lit!

Thank you so much Khadija, and big hugs to you. Also thank you RNG (random number generator) for picking me!

Well you have a lovely day now. I'll be back with my Point of View, and many others' as well, on Friday!
