but why I made it, examining the thoughts that accompany creativity and the act of making."

Some of the beauties of the last week for me were: 
precious pink booties crocheted and delivered by my  friend, Teresa, to Baby Rose,
a tea some of the  ladies from East Hill Family Church gathered to enjoy,
glimpses of Mt. Hood from Orient Dr., West Orient Elementary and Gresham L.A. Fitness,
and my newest granddaughter, Baby Rose, visiting me in a basket :)

What were some of the beauties of your week?
