A hidden treasure right here in our own community.

We made a quick decision the other day, to hang a right.  We were coming home from a day-date (1st 3D movie, ever), when it just seems appropriate for a stroll in the vineyard.  Spring has by far, got to be the best time of year for photos because of the feelings of new beginnings and renewed freshness.

The timing was great, for some fresh pictures to add to the JillCards, LLC archives, for new creations!  When you live so close to such wonderful attractions, it’s easy to forget what’s right in your own back yard!


Whether you enjoy wine or not, it is absolutely beautiful. Thanks Wollersheim Winery (Sauk City, WI).


Better, not Bitter…..

Learn to appreciate what you have…

Happiness always looks small while you hold it in your hands, but let it go, and you learn at once, how big and precious it is. You never see it coming you just get to see it go. If you have something good don’t ever take it for granted. Otherwise someday, someone will come along and appreciate what you didn’t. Lesson: Learn to appreciate what you have, before time teaches you to appreciate what you had.

Make peace with your past…

When one door of happiness closes, another opens. But often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It won’t happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, I don’t care how hard this is, I dont care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life. Make peace with your past, enjoy your present, and hope for your future.

I’m so lucky….

Look what I got today.  It’s such a great feeling to get flowers for no reason whatsoever……

Don’t let people get the best of you…

We sometimes let people get the best of us, destroy us, and change our opinions on what we believe is true. Only you know what is right for yourself. You have the power, you make the choices and you learn. Each experience we go through in life is a lesson to be learned. We all make mistakes. Why is that so hard for some to understand? No one should be judged by the mistakes they have made. It’s past news.

New Arrival: Happy Birthday w/Gift Box

This is a gift box of (5) sunflower cards and envelopes to say a simple “Happy Birthday” to that special someone.
These are “Send again” cards so once your recipient has enjoyed them, they can say “Happy Birthday” to another someone special.
Set comes in a homemade gift box with a velcro closure to hold the cards and envelopes safely until you decide to share them.

Cards fit in a standard household envelope no. 6 3/4

May Peace Prevail on Earth!

The world we knew, won’t come back!
The time we’ve lost, we can’t get back!
The life we had, won’t be ours again!
So don’t let the little things stop you from living

Life is not always what one wants it to be…

Life is not always what one wants it to be, but to make the best of it, as it is, is the only way of being happy.

I love my friend…

People don’t talk much about the love friends have for one another.
Oh, we talk about liking friends.
But some friends add so much to our lives that “like” just isn’t strong enough to describe the bond.
You’re that special kind of friend.
I never get tired of your company.
And I can always be myself with you, confide in you, depend on you.

So I just thought I’d let you know that I don’t just like you – I love you…
For being such a great person, such a good friend.
