Week 20 - Isn't She Lovely

This week we are going to be singing along with the musical stylings of the great Stevie Wonder. I have many favorites, but the song we will be using as inspiration this week is, 'Isn't She Lovely'. Scroll down to read the lyrics or even hear the song play while you create.

This week we are being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons!!!


They have offered up to the winner the most awesome of goodie packages....their entire Velvet Bling ribbon collection. There are 20 jewel colored 10mm woven velvet ribbons that are heavily glittered with a fabulous bling that won't fall off!!!


----------------------------------------


Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she lovely
Life and love are the same
Life is Aisha
The meaning of her name
Londie, it could have not been done
Without you who conceived the one
That's so very lovely made from love

----------------------------------------

This week we are saying goodbye to 2 of our amazing designers. Jess and Hannah are both returning to teaching and we hope they will find time to play along with us in the comming weeks.

summer, summer, summertime
time to sit back and unwind

Here it is the groove slightly transformed
just a bit of a break from the norm
just a little somethin' to break the monotony
of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
a little bit out of control it's cool to dance
but what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
give me a soft subtle mix
and if ain't broke then don't try to fix it
and think of the summers of the past
adjust the base and let the alpine blast
pop in my CD and let me run a rhyme
and put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

school is out and it's a sort of a buzz
but back then I didn't really know what it was
but now I see what have of this
the way that people respond to summer madness
the weather is hot and girls are dressing less
and checking out the fellas to tell 'em who's best
ridin around in your jeep or your benzos
or in your nissan stting on lorenzos
back in Philly we be ou in the park
a place called the plateau is where everybody go
guys out hunting and girls doing likewise
honking at the honey in front of you with the light eyes
she turn around to see what you beeping at
it's like the summers a natural afrodesiac
and with a pen and pad I compose this rhyme
to hit you and get you equipped for the summer time

it's late in the day and I ain't been on the court yet
hustle to the mall to get me a short set
yeah I got on sneaks but I need a new pair
cause basketball courts in the summer got girls there
the temperature's about 88
hop in the water plug just for old times sake
break to ya crib change your clothes once more
cause you're invited to a barbeque that's starting at 4
sitting with your friends cause y'all remincise
about the days growing up and the first person you kissed
and as I think back makes me wonder how
the smell from a grill could spark up nostalgia
all the kids playing out front
little boys messin round with the girls playing double-dutch
while the DJ's spinning a tune as the old folks dance at your family reunion
then six o'clock rolls around
you just finished wiping your car down
it's time to cruise so you go to the summertime hangout
it looks like a car show
everybody come lookin real fine
fresh from the barber shop or fly from the beauty salon
every moment frontin and maxin
chillin in the car they spent all day waxin
leanin to the side but you can't speed through
two miles an hour so everybody sees you
there's an air of love and of happiness
and this is the Fresh Prince's new defintion of summer madness

You can reach me by railway,
You can reach me by trailway
You can reach me on an airplane,
You can reach me with your mind
You can reach me by caravan,
Cross the desert like an Arab man
I don't care how you get here,
just get here if you can

You can reach me by sail boat,
Climb a tree and swing rope to rope
Take a sled and slide down the slope
Into these arms of mine
You can jump on a speedy colt,
Cross the border in a blaze of hope
I don't care how you get here,
just get here if you can

There are hills and mountains between us
Always something to get over
If I had my way, surely you would be closer
I need you closer oh closer

You can windsurf into my life,
Take me up on a carpet ride
You can make it in a big balloon,
But you better make it soon
You can reach me by caravan,
Cross the desert like an Arab man yeah
I don't care how you get here,
just get here if you can

I don't care, I need you right here right now
I need you right here right now right by my side
Yeah yeah yeah
I don't care how you get here, just get here, get here
I don't care how you get here, just get here if you can
Get here if you can

----------------------------------------

The real me is a southern girl with her Levis on and an open heart
Wish I could save the world, like I was super girl
The real me used to laugh all night lying in the grass just talking about love
But lately I've been jaded life got so complicated

I start thinking about it,
I almost forgot what it was like to know what it feels like
Cause with you I can let my hair down
I can say anything crazy
I know you'll catch me right before I hit the ground
With nothing but a T-shirt on I never felt so beautiful
Baby as I do now Now that I'm with you
With you, with you, with you Now that I'm with you

You speak and it's like a song
And just like that all my walls come down
It's like a private joke just meant for us to know
I relate to you naturally everybody else just fades away
Sometimes it's hard to breathe just knowing you found me

Come and take me love you save me
Like nobody else, Now I can be myself
With you...
