Tribute to my Bully Mya RIP 6-24-09

Hi blogging friends. Wen. morning I posted pics of my minis I created, and was off to work. It has been sooo dry and hot here with temps in the 100's. We don't leave our fur babies outside too long, they stay inside mostly. Well, Mya was outside and I think she had a heat stroke. I got home that evening around 5:30 or 6pm to find her in the house drooling and panting. My hubby had the fan on her, but it didn't help. I am not sure if she may have had a heat stroke or her cancer returned. I sat there and pet her and scratched her butt. She looked up at me with those human like eyes and I knew she was going to leave me. She died in my arms. I have just been devastated. She was my popcorn, as she used to bounce around when she got excited. Just a silly girl. I will forever miss her. She took with her a huge piece of my heart. I still can't believe she is gone. Sometimes I can still hear her snore.

Tiny Pieces of me! Mini Raggedies!

So in between work and my off days I have actually got to sew! I just played around with a few things, still need to finish up a few more pieces. Thought I would show my blogging friends! These lil raggedies are about 6"! As I played around with some ideas for the brown and pink polka dot one, she kept whispering in my ear that she would love to be a pin cushion! So her wish is my command! Let me know what you think!
I only have a 5 hour work shift today, then off again tomorrow! Woo hoo! I sooo don't want to be full time!
Hope your having a great day!

Sheep Star Wreath

It has been a looong while since I have been able to create anything! My trip to Pa. and work has been keeping me away from my craftroom. Well I finally got to make something! I am so happy with the way it turned out!
I listed it on Ebay! Here is the link:

Well I have to get in bed now! Sorry this is a short post, but I have work early in the morning! Have a good night!

Sheeeeees OUT Woo hoo!

OMG!!! She is out! If your not sure what I am talking about... let me do a short re-cap! Last year I was diagnosed with cancer... the same day we signed papers on our new house. Well we had to sell our old house. The market like it was, we had to do something quick. So we did an owner finance. Long story short she hasn't paid us since Jan of this year! That is 6 payments! And during all this my hubby was put on furlow, so needless to say paying for 2 houses and trying to keep our head above water has been tricky! God has been very good to us though! When times were so tight, we didn't know what we were going to do, we just prayed our lil hearts out! And something (God) would always come through for us! It was just too weird and couldn't be coincidental! So fast forward to today! I drive by our old house every day looking to see if the lady is out of our house or not. She had 3 of those Pod things in the yard. Last Tuesday she took one of them off the property, today they were ALL GONE!!! OMG!!! I called my hubby!!! I went home, got changed, loaded up some drinks, my girls, our trailor and headed over to the old house!!! We loaded up rocks and things we had left behind the 1st time. Boy it sure felt weird going back into our old house. Knowing someone else lived there. I had one melt down and started crying. I have so many memories there, my craft room, trees we planted (some she cut down). My FIL passed away in 03 and there are trees there that he planted for us that are so big now. There there are our kids trees. We planted a crepe mertle 1 for each of our 6 kids. The are ginormous! The good news is that we are doing a quick cash buy out with a our realator and will be out from under that whole nightmare at least by the end of this month! We are not making much, but we are going to walk away with some $ in our pocket and be able to breath again! Woo hoo!
Well, thanks for checking in on me! I have to go get some sleep! I have work early in the morning! They are working me almost 38 hours this week! It is inventory week!

Star wrought iron Firewood holder!

Hubby has been busy this week! This is another one of his projects he made from stuff we had laying around! I about died when I saw it! I just love it!!! He says he wants to add more to it, but I love it the way it is! See the stars he welded to it?

New primitive star shelf!

Well this past week hubby was on furlow again. I don't like the part of not being paid, but he likes the time off to get stuff done! I came home from work and he had a suprize for me! This shelf! I think he has to move it up some for the curtains to hang right.

We painted our bathroom a pale blue, but now I don't like it! Just doesn't seem to go with the them of the house! I was trying to think outside the box! Hubby confessed that he wasn't that thrilled about it either. So after all the painting, we have to do it again! I like the color that is on my stairway, so that will most likely be our next color. I want to make it a primitive bathroom! So starting again from scratch! lol Still need curtains too! I am off tomorrow and got off work early today, so maybe I can get stuff done! Thanks for stopping by!

Lazy susan make over!

This is the lazy susan I picked up in Pa. before

Here it is after! I wanted to put a star in the middle of it, but chickened out! Then remembered the awsome bowls I won at the convention from Jen! They fit perfect! Then I added the yummy candle in the middle!

Firecracker Annie! Available!
