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, 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 !!!!!

Hello , just a couple pictures from the garden, What a busy week-end. Saturday lil miss Haley and I went to a May day thing at my parents house. Then I came home to do some yard work for the rest of the day. Today hubby and I ran all our errands and I started outside again. Right now I have little bits of fiberglass in my arms ouch .... cleaned off the fiberglass covers over the front wondows and started painting them .They were in much need of some TLC. Started pulling the carpet off the front steps that fell apart over the winter .Trying to get all the glue they used to put it down off ,not a fun job , then to decide how I want to redue it . I had to stop for the day a lil while ago due to rain but will be back out there tomorrow . Still need to get my garden in as well , along with a list of other things .
We did find some solar globe lights at menards to place out front in the flower beds .I just love them you can have them change colors or just remain white . After watching them last night Hubby and I just had to go back to the store this morning and get a few for the back yard as well so very pretty .Can't wait to get all this work done and set out in the swing in the pagoda relax and enjoy them .
A few images of some of the things I have been playing around making. But it is time for me to get back to my sewing machine and sew some dolls or something ...although I will still be playing around with some jewelry on the side now and then so much fun .
