I was playing with sticks today (: this is the first of several little ideas I have up in this silly head of mine right now. I have been driving hubby crazy at night sketching things out in my notepad with my flashlight. Needless to say my brain decides to get busy when I go to bed and want to sleep lol. My in-laws moved a couple months ago from the home they had lived in for 40 years. And being the sentimental person I am I cut some branches from a few trees on the property that will be taken out to build new homes on the ground .It will all be bulldozed and nothing left to remember but memories . The branches were from trees my hubby and his sister planted when they were kids and some lilac bushes that were there grandmothers . I cut them and brought them home with ornaments in mind for hubby his sister and parents .This is the first of them which is for my mother-in-law.I thought I would share pics with you. I will have more of my silly little creations to post soon working on some wings that are almost finished. Have a good week-end.
My nephew's band made the top ten in hometown for the holidays in Colorado so proud of them .If you would like to listen to there new song check it out here.
This is a link to there face book as well if you would like to keep up with them a very talented group of young men.

Hello, I have been back in my craft room playing again feels good .I hope to get some things done to list soon. This is just some pictures of things I have been playing around making.a tad bit rusty after such a long break from it but working on it (:
I did this picture with the wings for my room inspired by things I found on Pinterest and things I have been dealing with. It is true the harder we get hit by things life throws at us there is a strength to be found in it if we look for it and it can make us stronger. I am rising above everything that has happened in the past years and finding myself again. Sometimes you have to be knocked to your knees pretty darn hard to really wake you up and see the beauty around you again. And just simply be thankful for the simple little things in life. The beautiful magic we are surrounded by everyday but tend to forget about while we get busy making a living.
A little bird ornie I have been working on, you just might see some on eBay or Etsy soon.
I have a passion for nature so I will be trying to add more of it to my work.
So that is what I have been up to , I am off now to work on some curtains and a rag quilt for my granddaughters room .It won't be long before we can hold her in our arms so excited can't wait to look into her beautiful eyes. Have a good day !!! Big Hugs Renae

Hello my dear sweet friends ,It has been awhile since I have posted. Some things happened this year that have kept me from blogging and crafting. The first picture is of my oldest daughter She is expecting in January and we are beyond excited. This will be my first grandchild .She is being named after me how cool is that. I have been busy getting ready for a baby shower November 9th. I hope to show you some pics of what I have made for it soon.It has gotten me back to crafting again, I forgot how good it feels to create stuff.
And this is my very beautiful daughters. I am so blessed to be able to post this photo. One of the reasons I have not had my little creations up or posted for a few months is that my youngest daughter attempted suicide in June due to bullying. And more then anything that has happened these past few years with hubbies health and my grams passing it dropped me to my knees the hardest, I found strength I had no clue I had . I won't talk much about it right now due to her privacy. But wanted to explain where I have been. My focus has been and will remain on her as she is still dealing with this .
I will be crafting again soon ,for those that have been looking for my little creations wondering where I have been .I am sure this will explain it.
Have a good day!!

Hello, Been a while since I last posted have had lots going on here. Thought I would post some pictures of owls that started hanging out in our back yard yesterday. We first noticed three large owls yesterday morning and couldn't figure out why they would be out during the day.
Then yesterday afternoon found a baby hanging out in one of the trees which I took pictures and watched it for some time. Then last night my daughter and I went out to see if it was still there and caught four babies up on the telephone lines just starting to take off.
This morning they were in the back yard again. I tried to take a few pictures but it was still a bit dark out and the flash on the camera scared them into the neighbors yard. I am sure they will be back later, I know I will be looking for them .
I just hope people letting off fireworks which starts today( not thrilled about that it runs a full week here a day is enough for me )won't scare them off. Such a beautiful thing to be able to watch them I had never seen one up close until yesterday. So anyhoo here are a few pictures I took of them . Have a good day .Hugs Renae
