Significance of the Name

My Blog’s name is a tribute to my Dad & my Husband. My Dad because he used to sing the song to me, "How 'd You Like to Swing on a Star?" It's about reaching for your dreams, you can stay where you are & be safe OR YOU CAN SWING ON STAR. Stars also refer to a difficult night just after my husband died. I was talking to him (I often do.) & said how I missed his "I Love You's". That night he gave me a dream... a gorgeous, bright blue night sky filled with thousands of stars, in the middle the stars formed an "I LOVE YOU"....such a gift on so many levels.

So "follow your own path, & don't worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest”

I have had soooo much trouble with software and getting the header I wanted for my blog. My original header was too small and no one could get it to fit. 
(Thank-you to my daughter's friend Gabby who spent so much time trying to figure it out!)
Then I tried using Photoshop, but the learning curve was to time consuming. After many frustrations I finaIly purchased Photoshop Elements 9. It still took quite a learning curve, and I am still learning so much.

 Today after installing the new software in my new MAC, I just persisted until I came up with what you now see. (Hope you like it)

You can't imagine how I held my breath until it appeared in my header spot. 
Can you tell I'm a bit excited and rather proud of myself?

Now I can begin this blogging journey. I am not sure where it will lead, but here goes.... 
I not only want to talk about arts, crafts, flea market experiences but sometimes about the journey we are all taking together....

I have many decisions to make, but my next post will be about the Wedding Shower Bulbs  pics featured in my header. Let me know what you think of my header...
