JUST SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS AND PICTURES

I know I have been MIA......so much has been going on in my life.....3 weeks ago today, I found my almost 85 year old mother lying in her garage.....she had been there for over 6 hours. Praise God, there were no broken bones, but she did had lost alot of blood because of a head injury....it been 3 weeks of ups and downs....twice not thinking she was going to make it. But, yesterday she was transferred to a health care place. She will begin therapy and our hope is that she can eventually make it into the assisted living wing. My brothers live in Michigan and Texas....so that makes the situation even harder at times. She turns 85 on July 23......please say a prayer for mother that she continues to grow stronger. This has been very traumatic on her.

BUT.......with that comes wonderful news!.....

So, just how cute is this couple??!! Our son Tyler and his awesome wife, Missy....and please take note of the little "bump". That little bump has a name......Maryn Rae....due the end of November! Our first grandchild!!!!!!! OMG! We could not be more excited. I think I have become "one of those" people! And she has not even arrived yet! Missy and Tyler were actually in the middle of adopting from Ethiopia....and SURPRISE! A true miracle baby! I am so happy for them......a perfect example of God's perfect timing. This baby had been prayed for for several years..... Along with Missy's parents....we cannot wait to welcome this precious child and start spoiling her....
the "S" in the paper roSe.....my beautiful daughter Sara! I always call her my cheerleader! She encourages me to do what I do! I love spending time with her. Sara is my very best friend....I am so proud of her...

With my wonderful husband.....this is the man I could not function without! He garage sales with me (and has been known to even go on his own), repairs furniture, builds, has even helped me with painting, and just supports me every step of the way! I know I could not do what I do without him!

Newest addition to the family.....I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! And it is perfect for hanging things on that I am working on! Trying to come up with a name for her......


This is a wall hangin that I did for my friend Julie's nursery. It is done on 4 12x12 canvases. Julie and Nick's initials are 'carved' on the tree. Julie and Nick are expecting their little one any day.....and they did not want to know the sex. My bet is a boy.....but, boy or girl....this is going to be one cute baby! Nick and Julie are such a cute couple......

a necklace that I did for a friend of my daughters.......
