Thank You Tonya

Friends are one of lifes most precious gifts. I have been blessed to have met so many wonderful folks through the internet and Tonya of Back Porch Pickins in one of them.
I had asked Tonya if I could hire her to make me a new banner. She told me on my birthday that this was my gift. I would have to wait as she is always so very busy but worth the wait it was. Look at this wonderful banner. Tonya knows that butterflies hold a special spot in my heart. Something between my Daddy and I. So she placed a few in my banner. Isn't that nice.. I love the old feel of it and yet it suits the whimsical side of me to a T or should I say P? LOL Thank you Tonya it is beautiful!

I know I have been absent but I have been running, working and more like a mad woman. I have so many projects and sites due all at once. Not only that but the normal tasks of kids, Mr.Peabody, house, pets and taking all of them where they need to go. You may not see much of me this week as I am preparing for my Mother's visit. She is coming for a short visit and to look for a house. We need to find her something in only a weeks time. YIKES. So I have to get this place in tip top shape as she has severe allergies. So I will be running again not to mention the golf thing is still on going.

I thought I would show you a little sneak peek of one of my items for the new site
I am so excited and actually managed to get three items done for the opening of the site. That is amazing with all that I have been up to lately. Now to bust my butt to get the rest of the stuff done this week. Yikes.
Okay everyone I must scoot if I am to get anything done. Have a wonderful week and play nice.

Susan Tuttle has a new book out. I just viewed this book a few days ago at Barnes and Nobles. Susan Tuttle makes you see ordinary things in an EXTRODINARY new way! It is true. L` from prims 4 him wrote that and I couldn't agree more. I am finding that I appreciate more art everyday and this book is no exception. She is giving one away on March 25th so hurry to her blog and enter to win. I would LOVE to win this book. It has so many cool ideas and techniques in there, really makes the old think tank rev up the batteries and doodle a few ideas. Go check out Exhibition 36
Have a wonderful creative day.

I just love Spring Give Aways

A very kind, gal over at Prim 4 HIm is having a give away. A lovely little bird, 2 nests and goodies to be added. If that doesn't make you think of spring no matter what the temp in your world nothing will. Ahhhhhhhh spring, I personally can not wait!

Now I am off to have a bit of fun tomorrow. My car is back and well we might be broke but I can at least hit the grocery store. What the hey the car only cost me 1200 dollars to be fixed. A small price to pay really when you think it could have been the trannie! Thank God it wasn't. Hey I might even get to go to church this weekend. whoo hoo.
Have a wonderful weekend making memories.

Things are looking up a bit.

Well today I am feeling a bit better. Talking not so much like I swallowed the biggest frog on earth the bad news is DD got my frog. OH boy. Even being sick today she had the biggest news and couldn't wait to tell me. Her name was in the local Paper the Bremerton Sun. She was in the sports section of the paper as the first Upcoming player to watch for her golf team. She was on cloud nine as the list came in order from the coach. Whoo hoo- you go little girl! He told us she is a natural and thrilled to have her on the team. Wish she had joined her freshman year.. Oh well things turn out the way they are supposed to be I guess. She does love it and I know this because Katie hates the cold and yet she never complains when she is on the field freezing her toots off chasing a little white ball.LOL

The mechanic called today and the new computor for the car is in. Now have to wait for another part tomorrow. But hopefully will have the car soon. I can't wait to be able to go out again. Wasn't it me a few days ago complaining about being in the car? LOL Can't win all the time I guess.
Well I am off to work. With being sick I haven't got much done. I would only work for short spurts and go to bed. Can't sew if your eyes are crossed.
Have a wonderful weekend. I looking to going to the quilt shop to spend some free pennies on fabric. whoo hoo free fabric I love those words together. LOL

P.S. it won't let me load the picture. Our new router showed up today so hopefully that will fix the internet problems we have had.

Mistaken Delivery

Okay, I think there has been a mistake. We were delivered some snow and in fact about 5 inches of this cold, perfect powder and well I might be yours? If it is yours could you please and come and pick it up? I hate to keep it if it belongs to you. Keeping you from using your shining skis,sleds and let us not forget about the kids who want a snowday to have a good old fashioned snowball fight.

I woke up this morning with every intention of going to church till I looked outside. Then though okay go to town instead. Talked DH into going. Ofcourse we have to use his car as mine is still broke. Than it kept on snowing. He said I will hit the little store instead. It is still snowing as we speak. Good grief. Big old flakes. It was 50 something just the other day and DD was wearing shorts for golf. Mother Nature is off her rocker is all I can say.
Well I guess I won't be taking the car back tomorrow. OH boy fun, fun to wait some more. Well I am getting sick anyway. I have been dodging this cold for months and I think it finally caught up with me. Joy oh joy!
Have a good one.

Happy birthday Jacob!

My boy is 25 today. WOW where did the time go? It seems like yesterday I was tug him around like a football. First day of school, first girlfriend, first so many firsts there are just too many and I am honored to have been witness to most of them. He is such a nice guy too. Serving this great Country of ours, still finding time for the ones he loves. The kind of kid that you can call in a moments notice and he is right there willing to help any way he can. Very much like his Father in that aspect. I couldn't be prouder of him and who has become.
we are having a little dinner, cake and ice cream. YEH I GET CAKE!! LOL After this week I think I need some. Nothing fancy but love and time.
Must scoot and get the dinner going. He requested beef stroganoff but it is yummy.
Have a wonderful day. The sun is shining so this is wonderful in a rain forest.

Just a horrible day

This week has been aweful. Everything that could go wrong has. Ever have one of those weeks?
Today was just the icing on the cake. I melted. My God Mother( Sue's Mom) is in the hospital and was given the grave news that she has colon cancer- which is what took my precious Sue's life. My mom had to put down my Dad's dog whom I loved very much. Seems like another piece of me went to heaven with him.
Then my car almost broke down on the stinking freeway. Off we were two kids in the car to the on ramp and my car won't go. All of a sudden it jerks and then goes. Thought maybe just hit the gear somehow. Doing okay but still feel something not right. Get to town and had a list of things to get for my son's birthday dinner/ celebration tomorrow evening. We ended up leaving town, calling for help/possible tow. We made it home but it was scarey for me. Now I have no gift for my beloved Jacob, and had to change the dinner plans.
I was going to town to buy some needed items as well and now probably won't have the funds for those with the car repairs. Sometimes life just stinks. I am just angry and feeling a bit broken. Just needing to vent. Sorry, just needed to get it off my chest.
Going to go and try and work. Doubt if I will be able to but I will attempt to anyway.

Quilt books and Rug hooking wool added

Hello Everyone,
I have been busy today listing a few things in my eBay page. I have some precut rug hooking wool and a few quilt books listed, as well as one of my Pin Keeps with free shipping on most items.
I am off and running again to the studio. Orders to get completed and sent out this week. Then I am gonna play with some new stuff- tee hee. Don't worry I will show you all.
Have a wonderful week. I will be living in the car again. LOL For the next 5 months. OH boy.

Special Orders have flown the coop

I am making progress. The new owners of these have received them and are pleased. That is all that matters. So I am still working on a few more orders and have to mail out this week. Just thought I would pop in and share what I have been up to.
Enjoy the day what ever the weather!
