Last Monday I had no choice but to
have my little Missy put to sleep.
A few months back she became sick, and never really recovered, or acted the
same. Recently she started having seizures, that grew more frequent, and more violent,
our Vet said it was the most human thing to do...
She was my best friend and constant
companion, I will miss her terribly. She loved being with me regardless where we went, or what we
were doing. She especially loved riding
in the car, and looking out the window.
I'm thankful you were a part of my
life Missy, you will never be forgotten.
When we returned home last weekend from my MIL's house, we had this beautiful card in our mailbox from Barbara Schram, a designer for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store design team. It's just beautiful, and it truly touched us both. Thank you so much Barb, you have know idea how much this meant to us. If you want to see more of Barb's beautiful art, you can visit her blog here, she's one very talented lady, and so sweet, I'm honored to be on a Design Team with her.
Well for some reason my computer won't recognize my camera's SD card that I've been using so I can't share my card with you today... I guess I need a new SD card... that's pretty frustrating for sure, I had know idea that could happen... But, while I was at Hazel's (MIL) house last week, I took some pictures with my cell phone, and emailed them to my home computer. I thought I would share some of the her lovely antique's she has collected, she love's her handmade porcelain dolls.
I will purchase a new SD card, and have more of my projects to share with you later in the week.
Hazel does beautiful hand embroidery, this is one of the pillow case's she created.
She's also very good at flower arranging. She added lace, ribbon and flowers to both of these hats.
This is a small part of her wonderful doll collection, they are so pretty in their cabinet's.
Hello dear readers, I'm sorry I haven't posted anything the last couple of weeks, but things on this end have been crazy. My sweet MIL has taken a turn for the worst, she's lost 10 lbs. in three weeks, and is so weak. The Dr. told us her situation has turned to grim... it's so sad, and sad to watch her health go down so fast. We are on our way back to her house for the week, I promise I will make a few things to share with you. Please keep Hazel in your thoughts and prayers, we appreciate them so much.
It's been a few days since my last post, but I've been a little under the weather... I do have a couple of projects finished, but haven't started blogging about them. Hopefully in a couple of days I will have them up and running. Thanks for visiting, I will be back soon.
flew by, I can’t believe it's already January 10, 2013.
I want to
thank each one of you for your sweet comments, continued support, and
encouragement on YouTube, and on
my blog. You are the reason I keep pushing myself to the next level with my
crafts, and allowing me to share what I do with you.
reflecting back on all the good things, I went back through my 2012 posts, and
picked some of my favorites projects.
especially want to thank the following companies (In alphabetical order below),
for giving me their support, the
chance to play with their wonderful products, and asking me to be a member of
their Design Teams this past year.
Well, DH and I thought we would spend several days at the lake. The above picture was taken from the back of our houseboat showing you the view we are very privileged to have. Now that summer is over, the lake is a very quite place, and we love being there.
I am working on a project as I type this post, that will be posted tomorrow evening :) I've missed all of you, but I must admit, I have had a blast this summer.
Hi everybody, sorry for the lack of posts, but things on this end have been busy, busy, busy. In my last post I mentioned that I had the flu (the entire family). When I started feeling better DH and I hitched up our Ski boat and headed to the lake thinking we would spend a day on the houseboat, and just relax. While there we had an electrical fire in the engine of the Ski boat, and had to be towed... Long day!
When we returned home, someone(s) had been in our backyard and stole lots of DH tools, and went thought his truck and took items including the key to our big rolling back gate, among others. Fortunately, the police did recover most of the tools, but not the key to the gate, so we had to have things re-keyed. We asked the police if they had ever had problems like this in our area, and they said no, and wondered if someone knew we were going to be gone... We are having surveillance video cameras placed around the house that will record both day and night. From now on all the Surveillance cameras will be on, and if anyone comes on our property from any angle of the yard, they will be recorded.
Then, I broke my glasses :( and without them I can't see a thing. I went to my eye Dr. last Thursday, and they said I should have my new ones in about a week. As of today no glasses :( and without them I can't really see to create...
A couple of weeks ago DH went to play golf in the Fireman Olympics, so all the kids/Grand kids (with some of their friends) came over and stayed with me because I was here by myself. It was so much fun to have all of them here at the same time. (See picture below).
Plus DH won a Gold Medal :)
With summer in full swing at our house, and all the kids running in and out of the house (which I love). I will post when I can. When school starts I'm sure everything will get back to normal, and I will be posting more projects. But until then I can't promise anything because I never know what's happening around here from day to day LOL!!
