November 27, 2014

What a beautiful day.  A little chilly but not as cold as it was supposed to be thank goodness.  Glad all that cloud cover has blown out.  Man,  I can't imagine how people live without having beautiful blue skies everyday.  That is one thing to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. 

As you know I have befriended a neighborhood cat that has no home. She is so sweet.  She will sometimes wait at the front door and peep through the glass waiting for her food.  She will let me pet her but is still so very skittish. I have not tried to pick her up. During the cold spells we have cracked the garage door for her.  I went and bought a little bed and left it on the rug she would curl up on.  Yesterday she was peeking in the door on the patio.  So I moved her food and bed back to the patio.  I could tell something was eating her food I left in the garage.  I assumed it was the tom cat that aggravates her.  But, last night I peeked out on the porch to check her.  She was looking at something and meowing at me.  I figured, yep yellow tom was out there. I look at the food dish.  Oh my gosh!!!!  There is a possum.  Need to get a trap and move it to the woods.  It is amazing how attached we get to these furry creatures. I am talking about Thomasina( that's what I call her).  Another thing to be thankful for are the pets in our lives.  Some we own and some that own us.

Earlier this month we had a birthday weekend for my brother.  What a special time to be together. It was a time of working together.  Remembering our childhood.  Some of us have better memories than others.  Laughter.  Yes, remembering always brings on the laughter.  There were tears.  Can't have memories without some tears.  But all that is part of being alive and loving one another.  Family.... best thing there is.  Family is the thing I am most thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Have a very Blessed Thanksgiving.

Smiles 'til I see you.

Growing up - November 21, 2014

Have you enjoyed this nice cold weather????  It has been a bit icy at my house.  The kitty cat has actually been staying in the garage in her little bed I got her.  Just a bit warmer and then another blast for Thanksgiving.

Here is our second layout for Monday's class.

Kids grow up in a blink of an eye.  Enjoy them while you can. 

Have a great weekend.

Smiles 'til I see you.

Had a great Card Blitz over the weekend.  The ladies did a great job with all those complicated folds.  Just a reminder next months Card Blitz will be the second weekend.  It will be the 12th and 13th.

Please bring the following items to class if you want to duplicate the card in a box at home.  I will bring my punches, dies, and stamps.  You will need these papers: Kraft, red, green, and white.  The inks I used were brown and black. Bring your ziplock bags.  Some of those punches are tiny.

Stay safe today.  I understand we are under a tornado watch.

Smiles 'til I see you.

This week we lost a special lady.  She was always there to help you.  Always smiling.  So very talented. I am fortunate to own several of her painted pieces. She had so many wonderful stories she shared about her life.  And man could she do some cooking.  You never knew what she was going to experiment with next.  She would take a recipe and make it her own. Here she is making a beautiful strawberry tree for one of our parties at the shop.

She loved experimenting with all kinds of art medium.  Some she liked and some she didn't have to do again.  Always wanting to learn more.

She will be missed around our craft tables.

Her son Tony posted this information:

We will celebrate mom's life at Mikesville Presbyterian Church at 10:00 on Wednesday the 12th of November. Mom loved her church family, her crafting family and her dulcimer family so please join us. Also, in lieu of flowers or gifts, the family is requesting donations be made to Mikesville Presbyterian Church.
