Hello everyone ,I have been busy trying to figure out this pattern thing . This is my first pattern I have done to share and I am not sure what I am doing yet lol .So I am giving it out as a freebie. You can all test it out for me : ) I am not sure how good my instructions are ,I find it hard to explain how I do things and wonder if it makes since to others at times . I have the link in the side bar so just click on the picture there and it should take you to the file to download or print it .I hope so anyway ,if you have any problems getting to it just leave a comment and let me know and I will respond as soon as I can . I did a set of these lil guys a couple years ago and sold them on eBay .As I was going through some things over the week-end I came across the pattern and figured hey I am going to give this a try .And many hours and frustrations later here we go : ) But hey only one way to learn something and that is to try right ....And I have promised to do so for a couple years now ....so it was due time I sat my bum down and started to figure it out . If this does ok there will be others to follow .This lil guy has a couple partners that went with him so they might make an appearance soon . Ok I am off to make hubby and the kiddo's some supper I will chat at you all soon .Oh by the way I set up an account on face book as well it is a work in progress but the link is in the sidebar as well :) Have a good evening

Good morning everyone,It is so beautiful here this morning ,I was out watering some of the flowers I have uncovered .Need to get the rest of them cleaned up this week they are growing so fast .It has been so nice seeing the green starting to show and letting some fresh air in the
I did this candle jar up for my table over the week-end. I love anything with birds, eggs and nests so just had to make one .I used the graphic above for it ,you are welcome to use it . Just find a clear jar, place some moss in the bottom of it .I painted some paper mache eggs up and placed 3 in there. Printed the graphic off to fit the back of the jar used some mod podge to attache it facing the inside of the jar .Then covered the back of the image with some coffee stained rice paper ,any paper or fabric that shows on both sides would work that you like .Then I glued the same bird graphic over the coffee stained and other image so it could be seen on the outside of the jar as well.Then coated the outside image with some more modge podge .Then just place a glass votive or whatever you like that will fit in the top of the jar.I used an old blue glass cylinder I had . Then put flicker candle in very simple. These would make really cute gifts for friends and loved ones .Mothers day is coming soon :)Just one idea for some of my lil ol graphics .
And here is another idea ,I used some little boxes from valentines day the little sampler Russel stover ones . I got plenty of them on clearance very cheap for the kiddo's and just had to come up with an idea for them . The kids ate the chocolate and mom played with the box's :)I just took one apart traced a pattern onto paper and covered them with mod podge and pretty paper .I have been playing with pressed flowers lately so I added one of those to the box as well .I can't wait for my own flowers to grow so I can get busy and press some of those .But anyway another idea ,they are perfect for jewelry.
Last night Hubby and I went to the high school .My youngest son made honor society at school and they had a little ceremony for them .Rather proud of him ,he only has one more year of high school left then he is off to college to be a chiropractor .About the same time my oldest daughter will have to go to a different college to get her bachelors and my oldest son will most likely be headed over seas .So I am going to cherish this next year with them all still here under this roof :) time goes so fast but I couldn't be more blessed .
Ok I am off to get some sewing done ,yes you heard me right back at the sewing machine and almost have a couple things finished up to get on eBay .Just need to put a few finishing touches on them and work on some pictures .Feels good to finally have something finished up again and ready to get back into it all :)I think that sunshine and nice fresh air has motivated me again . Have a good day I will chat at you soon .

Hello everyone, a couple images to share with you :) click on each one to bring it up in a new window right click and save .
Hubby started back to work today worried about him ,I know he was nervous . We still have no answers but are working with a new doctor that feels the problem is with his pancreas . Also thinks what I did at the time this all began that the medications he was on had lots to do with things as well . He has gained 20 of the 24 pounds he lost that first week . He got the brace for his leg on Friday it better help for $2400 yikes!!! The guy that fitted and made it for him said he has never seen a guy his age have to get one before . If we do not get anywhere with the doctor we are with now we will then go to the Mayo clinic we had to make some hard choices . If hubby did not start back to work today he would lose his insurance and job so need I say more there ... Doctors feel it would be good for him mentally to get back to a routine again as long as it is light duty mostly paper work . He does have to go back and have another scan done of the nodule and blood work done in March I think to double check for cancer . The nodule did not show cancer but is not normal looking either . They checked for several things with that including a rare fungal infection all came back normal which is good . So right now only time will tell and I am setting here praying he is doing ok at work today .
We did get some answers on my oldest daughter a couple weeks ago ,she gained so much weight in the past year , was having horrible headaches and the only way I know how to describe her attitude the past couple years is bipolar . Well it is her Thyroid so working with a doctor to get meds adjusted right now,finally an answer . And some very good news about lil miss Haley Doctor feels she is possibly in remission from the arthritis and in July if it continues she will be taken off meds to see what happens for sure . One of those days I actually left the doctors office with happy tears :)
As for myself I am doing ok .....The best I can right now after the roller coaster ride the past several months , It has challenged me beyond words....But I will take the good stuff and come out of it strong again in time :) .I will be slowly starting back to my lil business in the days to come . What can I say my heart hurts right now I miss grams so very much .But maybe putting all that energy into my work is just what I need right now .So expect to be seeing some angels soon . I already have one pictured in this head of mine now just to create her .I also have some other things planned possibly another give away coming soon I do love doing those so be on the watch for that :)
Well I better get busy I decided to clean Haley's closet today imagine my surprise when I opened the door ...all I can say there is my daughter is a little pack rat Hee Hee .I was scared I would get lost in there still am lol :) Have a good day I will chat at you soon .
