Good morning everyone, I worked on these images yesterday for some room sprays I was making. Thought I would share them with you .Just click on each one to bring it up larger in a new window, right click and save :) I was thinking that first one would be cute on a handmade mothers day card or whatever .

Just a couple pictures of the roomsprays I was working on. An idea for a gift you can make that special someone .I added a wing with a bit of glitter to the images and stamped a pretty design on the outside edge of the image .used mod podge to attach everything .

Tomorrow we are headed to my grandparents estate auction. I have to say it is going to be a hard day I think .A day that will end a chapter in my life ,and that last page will be hard to close as I walk away tomorrow when it is over . At one time in life this was family that was so close to us when my mom was alive anyway , so many memories with all of them and so much time spent with them growing up . Then it all disappeared pretty much after her funeral . After so many harsh words were spoken to my father about my mom's care and such. There were family members that refused to believe she had cancer was dieing and made things so much worse then they had to be. I fully understand what Dad had to put up with back then after hubby got sick last fall and i dealt with it from some of his family. Mom's doctor took them into a room tried to explain it all but they would not listen to reason and were very harsh to my father . And now years later after Grams passed away a couple years ago . My brothers and I being the ones to receive Mom's portion of the will.... well lets just say I have an aunt and uncle that the only word i could use to explain them both would be greed and heartless way to much to expalin . Do I love them both yes very much so, only want the best for them in life ,but the pain they cause to so many family members is beyond what I could explain.When I myself do not understand them myself. So I am not looking forward to tomorrow ...But need to be there for myself see if I can get a few of Grams and Gramps things to put away for my kiddo's .And a few treasures I remember from a wonderful childhood full of memories with all of them .
As for my Auntie Bev...Thank-you for remembering us kids knowing we are family and treating us as family . Mom is smiling down on you and so proud of you I know she is ,as is Grams :)You are such a kind hearted wonderful lady always know that and never let anyone tell you otherwise Bless your heart .
Sunday is my nieces graduation so we will be going to that then probably home to do some yard work . I pretty much try to ignore Mothers day it is a day my heart aches .But yet a day that I am so proud to be the mom of four beautiful kids ,I am so blessed to have in my life they are my heart .
I would like to tell all the Mom's out there Happy Mothers day !!!! a bit early I will not be on the computer much over the week-end busy busy busy the next few days . I hope you all have a wonderful week-end !!!!!

Hi Renae,

Sounds like you have been busy. It is always fun to play with photos and editing and such. They are all so very sweet.

I am sure you are not looking forward to the estate sale, but as you said, you must and if you did not go, then you would always wonder and hoped you had gone.

I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day as are not the only one, it normally just always feels like another day to me too. :) I do give my Mom a card and a gift and my kids make cards and such.....but you know.

Have a great day.

Hello, I couldn't visit and not say thank you not just for the images but for also sharing your heart with us. I hope you do get some well deserved rest, it sounds like you have been very busy. I will pop by your blog again. Take care.

I am so sorry for all the pain that is in your life right now.
So sad when family does not support each other, especially in times of sadness.

Things are just things, relationships are what counts.

I'm saying some prayers for you and your family.

Thank you for all the sweetness you share, even when your own heart is aching.
