Another cold morning!

   Well....  It is another cold morning here in Iowa!   We went from 72  degrees down to 21 degrees! Wow! Drastic change!  I  love the change,but sometimes, okay alot of the times I'm not ready for it.

  Not only does it make it harder for us to get up and moving in the mornings, it really messes with my boys breathing. 

  As soon as the weather gets under control so will their breathing it just makes for some long nights.

     Anywhoo... on to better news!  I will be participating in a craft show just for kids. It is like the secret santa shops they have at schools,but it will all be handmade items from local vendors! They will have food, gift wrapping stations and more!

     I can't wait!   This will be a great way to start off the Christmas season! It will also be my first craft show!  I will post more about this along with some pictures after. Stay tuned!

     I would love to share one of my favorite cards that I've made!

I just love this get well card!  I don't know if it is the butterflies or the sparkle or just both!
WE will be sending 50 hats and gloves out by the end of the month to help out East. The kids are very excited about this. After this donation we will be starting on our next one for a shelter down the street from us.
Time for me to get the kiddos ready for school! Hope everyone has a warm and blessed day!
Happy Tuesday!

Hello Fall!

   Oh my! I've been so busy I haven't had time to blog!  I'm going to have to get better at this.

   Well....  We have been going to alot of activites lately more than we usually do. I guess that is what happens when the kiddos get older and start going clubs and stuff.

   The kids have  been in the Halloween parades. I've lived here my whole life and never went to them. It was a blast!  All the floats and people. We even got to see the Zombies come out! So much fun! Gonna have to go again next year!

     I just love this time of year. the changing leaves, which are now all over my yard! lol

 That's okay, I love seeing my kids playing in them. They are talking about snow here in Iowa soon. I've got mixed emotions about that.  I love it,but hate driving in it.

  My oldest is studying to get her drivers permitt. I'm nervous and excited for her at the same time. I'll have to keep you posted.

   Well.... I have to get off here and get the kiddos to school!

  Oh! I haven't given up on my book yet. I haven't heard anything back yet,but I did send it to some other places.

  My shop is doing great!  I'm having a sale use code fall12 to get 12% off your order!

  Okay, now I really have to go

 Have a wonderful day and please remember to keep the people on the east coast in your thoughts and prayers. They are in mine as I have friends out there.

Happy Thursday!
