Sorry I have been MIA this week, had alot going on at home

and it just seemed to never be enough time to get on to blog .... My daughter's foot is still really yucky looking, can't remember if I posted that she went to the dr and he said it is a Grade 3 sprain which means torn ligament. She is in a compression boot until March 1st and we go in to see if anything else needs to be done, and a possible MRI.

as for me, well yesterday afternoon I was bent over to pick up something our dog was tearing up and he jumped up top of his head straight into bottom of my nose, and I saw stars and heard a crunch.... I have some swelling and it is very tender up on the bridge part of my nose, and one heck of a headache.... in fact, I am gonna go lay down now and rest.... Went to church this morning and kids have youth group tonight at 5... so I have time to nap I think.

just wanted to touch base and say HI and I am thinking about you, just been totally wrapped up...

Have a blessed Sunday!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Wishing everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day, as for me, I am home today with my youngest, she fell roller skating on Saturday night and we spent all day in Acute Care yesterday, not sure if its just a bad sprain or if there is tendon damage, possible a fracture but it was hard to see on the xrays yesterday cause there was so much swelling and inflamation .... She goes to the podiatrist tommorrow at 10 to see what they think, until then she is home with foot up on pillows sitting on couch watching movies, right now she is watching Ramona and Beezus (she loves Selina Gomez) and she is just a laughing away.

I am heading into town in a lil bit to get her school stuff her teachers have gathered up for her and get some papers I need to fill out for tommorrow, so that I can go to work and hubby who is off next two days can take her in for her appt.

Hope everyone has a blessed day!

and 2nd swap - 5 Favorite Things Swap

This swap was through A Pickled Pepper Patch and hosted by Char, my swap partner was Becky and WOWSERS she spoiled me so, I am such a lucky girl with two such great swap partners.
In this swap we were to send our partner, 5 of our favorite things, and Becky and I well we loved the same things so this was easy peasy. In this wonderful box of goodies I got today, there was a quilted heart makedo on an antique bobbin, a adorable lil bunny in an antique measuring cup, a cute cute cute crow in a rusty can with a flag and an adorable label, the cutest lil spring flowers on old wooden thread bobbins, a quilted piece of fabric in a black frame that is just awesome (and such small blocks) and the best thing of all was a prim candle board with 4 prim candles (have wanted one for forever.... woot woot ... love everything!!!! Thank you for spoiling me so!!! Your goodies are on the way, can't wait to know if you like your stuff.
Prim Blessings!

I am so spoiled received 2 swaps in the last 2 days

The first one is from swap through A Primitive Place - Tammy's blog, wowsers such great stuff and I feel so bad because I guess I am the only one who just sent 3 things, and my partner Nancy sent me so much awesome stuff. First I got this gorgeous prarie doll holding a rustin lid with a candle light in side, then a treen candy mold that is to die for, a adorable pillow tuck, some smelly good melts, cheesecloth wrapped smelly goods, 2 wax crows, and 2 magnetic note pads that are so primtastic and a rusty tin star garland. Thank you so much for spoiling me so good! I can only hope you like your stuff as well. my pics aren't the best as they are from my phone (dog ate the camera cord) I will show more better pics once I have redecorated for the spring.

Wow its February already

this year is flying by... I have so much to do and so much less time to do it now that January and come and gone. I am not on as much but I am here in my heart, just trying to spend less time on puter and more time working on our inventory and all the swaps I am signed up for.

Hope everyone is well and hanging in during all this weather we have been having, here in NC is not bad, but it is might cold and grey this evening when I got off work, who knows what we will wake up too.

Prim Blessings to All ! (now off to do some crafting)

Sorry Its Been Awhile Since Last Post

Its been a very busy week at work and then this weekend just seemed to FLY by, today was GORGEOUS here in NC it was actually 70 degrees... but starting tommorrow the bottom falls back out of the weather. Such a tease Mother Nature is...

I haven't really been crafting much this week, I do have a swap I have to get out on Friday for a swap I am through A Primitive Place and then I have another to get out I am in with The Pickled Pepper Patch by the next Friday, I hope to get both mailed on Friday (as that is payday and I have to wait til then to get them out)

Tommorrow's my Mom's birthday so doubt to get anything done tommorrow, but hopefully I will be able to get my act in gear and get to crafting Tuesday, that being the 1st day of Feburary.

well time to get off here and get some laundry folded and get ready for bed.

Be Blessed and Prim Hugs!!!

Saturday's Activities

Good Morning All,
I got up earlier to get my hubby a warm breakfast cooked before he left out for work on this cold morning, so I just decided to stay up and do some laundry and clean a lil, now I am resting, still not up to par from the stomach bug so trying not to over do it. And so now I am here online checking out my favorite primitive communites and blogs. I am still learning about my blog and how to add things and link to this and that so bare with me as I am a work in progress all the time.
I will be working on my "hares" today, got 12 of them traced, cutout, sewed and stuffed last night and now I am on to the stitching, painting and staining and decorating them. My hubby last night saw a couple of the faces I had stitched so far (just noses and mouths) and he said they look like *pissed off fun man chu wabbits* lol. I hope to get a couple done before he gets home from work to show him the finished thing and see what he thinks at that point.
Do you have big plans today? Its cold here, but not any snow or ice *yet* we are predicted to get a system coming in Monday evening and it is to be around til Wednesday, and at this point they aren't sure exactly what we will get ... depends on the track and the speed of the two systems meeting over top of us. I personally would prefer snow if we have to have anything but where we live (NC) is normally the ice line between the North and the South.... Maybe we will get lucky and it be just rain, kids have already missed 6 days this school year so far and next week is two of the 6 makeup days figured into the schedule, soooo who knows. Here we missed a whole day the kids could have gone because the weather men were predicting a snow event to start at lunch time and it didn't even start til 5 pm soooo who knows what will come of this next system.
Personally I am ready for SPRING, I am so over Winter and the cold, and germs floating around.

well I have talked enough I think , time to go get dog back in house from his jaunt outside and to get back to work on my hares.

Be Blessed in All you do today!!!!


Friday, January 21, 2011

My week

I have been home sick with stomach bug since Wednesday , just finally felt like doing something today and I have been working on some spring hares... I will post pics soon.
back to my hares that are multipling as we speak eekkk lol

be blessed!!

A look at what I have started today

Good Morning, Its Absolutely GORGEOUS here today

After such a crappy weather week, bitter cold, ice and snow, woke up this morning to the sun shining bright and the temps actually comfortable out. Gets me in the mood for SPRING!! I am so over the Winter, time to move on to Spring now please.....

I took a day off from the world and I am staying home ALL day and resting (actually slept in til 9:30) and crafting all day long. I am in the mood to do it and have some excellent new patterns and got muslin and thread and yarn Friday night, so today is gonna be productive. Which means I can't sit here on the computer all day, so I just wanted to pop in quickly and say HI and wish you all an excellent Sunday.

Be Blessed!!!

Well, been one crazy week so far

we had a lil weather system come through that could have been huge but as it came through NC is stayed low south, so we only ended up with about 2 inches of snow and 1/2 inch of ice on top... this came through Monday evening and Tuesday, so school has now been out Monday (cause they were thinking it would come on around lunch time) Tuesday cause it was messy, Wednesday still alot of ice on roads, and then now just got the call its out tommorrow as well, still must be ice somewhere in the school zone, here its all clear on the roads, driveways are tricky but roads are fine. My 13 yr old daughter is driving me NUTS!!!! lol however she is gonna go to a friends house for the day tommorrow and I am going to work, fun fun fun....

haven't really crafted much. the headcold/cough bug is back again and I feel like my head is in a vice.... been really blah,,, so nothing much done. But hoping the weekend will be better. *fingers are crossed*

just wanted to touch base and say HI
hope you are all well, safe and warm.

Be Blessed!

Sweet Peaceful Sunday

I got up with all the aches and pains and reasons not to go and get myself ready and went to church this morning and I am so glad I did. Ever have one of those days you feel the preacher is looking right at you and his sermon is just for you? Well that was me in a nutshell today. His sermon was about when Jesus went to Mary's home and she sat at his feet and washed his feet with her hair and how others were trying to call her out and say she was wasting precious perfumes and being lazy. Well he also talked about her sister, Martha. And how she is always taking on more than she can handle and stressing out over the little things so much that she totally misses the "IT" in the room, the whole parable the whole lesson she missed it because she was worried about feeding Jesus and making sure the house was clean and so on and so forth. I am a "Martha" .... I get so wrapped up in the everyday things, making sure everyone else is tended too "fed" and nutured that I almost missed the "IT" in the lesson today. I have to slow down, stop fretting over everything , don't worry about today, and be more at peace and give more of my time and thought to him and the lessons he is teaching me everyday.
God is working, I just have to believe and follow even when everything else is going on, I have to stop and listen for the "IT" ...

May you be blessed today and always!

Happy Blustery Saturday

I am a little late in my post but at least it is still Saturday as I post this.

Didn't do alot today, I 1st coated 3 jars with modge podge and coffee and have them drying now, will 2nd coat them tommorrow (which I hear is the worst one) and let them dry a day or two before modge podge the final coat.

have a braided rug in the works ( its actually a crocheted candle mat rug)

and I have lots and lots of nekid raggedies laying in the wagon waiting to be finished and clothed.

After church tommorrow hope to get some more done, had to run out to the grocery today and here in NC when the word Snow is mentioned the grocery store is the last place you want to be. But I had to do my weekly shopping and so I went, and I swear there are some serious NUTS in this town.

Well time to go tend to the sick hubby and get ready for bed myself, I think I will sleep on the couch as I don't want to catch what he has.

Be Blessed!

Tuesday 1-4-11

Good Morning All, I had the day off yesterday and actually other than taking down Christmas decor really didn't do much, was still suffering from the bad acid reflux episode from the night before.
I hate I totally blew a day off but it was necessary I guess, sometimes we just have to stop and slow down and rest. Things have been so non-stop with the holidays and work and then my in-laws visit, just when it was finally quiet I said REST Angie and I did.

So today I have a foot dr appt at 9:30 and then I am back to work. I also plan to get a Mega Million lottery ticket tonight for the big drawing. It would be so nice to win, and I am not greedy I will even settle for 1 million who needs the whole 330 million..... lol. I would love to have enough that I didn't have to work a full-time job, but then again if I wasn't working I might go nuts. Schools nowadays at least here in NC are so lacking, would love to homeschool my 7th grader, she gets rushed so she doesn't learn like she should. My niece who has been homeschooled from the start is so smart and so advanced... but then again she doesn't get the socializing my daughter does at public school.... BUT I digress, I have to work, so I can't homeschool her and its a mute point right now anyway.

I got one of my swap partners today, should also be getting another one but must have went to my work email, I have those two blog swaps one through A Primitive Place - Tammy and the other through The Pickled Pepper Patch... which both are awesome blogs, check them out if you haven't already.

so well I guess now I have to go get ready to head out, hope everyone has a great day..
and to Jen from taylors *farmhouse* attic I am praying for you and thinking of you today!

God Bless!

up super early with bad acid reflux

I am up very early, was sleeping so good then felt all this acid burn and thought I would be sick right there in bed, so jumped up and came out to try and find my Tums, but no luck there so drinking a glass of milk and sitting here surfing the web til things calm down.

anyone have any old family remedies for bad nights like this? I hate the burn, not sure what I ate yesterday but WOW , when I figure it out I won't do it again....

later today, since I still have one more day off work, I plan to get Christmas tree down and out of the house and all the decorations put away and then I want to craft the rest of the day away. We still have alot of leftovers so cooking is not a necessity today , hope that keeps me freed up to work on some new goodies.

be blessed!
