"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

I'm back..been gone a bit..had a wonderful turkey day at me daughter's house it was nice to have her do all the cooking. Then I have been preparing for all the parties. Went to Thursday-Sat and yesterday I went with 6 members of my crochet/knit group to a really fun craft fair out in a wee equestrian town. What fun! Wow this new google format for uploading pics is a little squirrly isn't it? I mean they are very hard to line up now... hmmmm
I made this Christmas card basket. I just love them and they are so easy, you just make a pattern of one octogon side and center on the portion of the card you want to show and then cut out 12 one for the inside and one for the outside. Then I used scrapbooking sheets for the bottom in a heavy red glitter for the inside and the silver for the bottom side. Then all you do is whip stitch with a darning needle and your favorite yarn. all the way around ....it is fun and so pretty... The elf slipper I made up for our slipper contest but only got one done, I just plum ran out of time! oh well...at least I had one to show... the gift is what I took to the ladies car club party...and I won the brautiful big red purse and scarf! I love them both...
Then I made the cute red hats necklace for a present for my red hats party and the pink eskimo slippers I won at my crochet/knitting party on Thursday night. It was quite a week, The gingermen I stuck on the goodie bags for the girls...
These cute stockings were given to my red hat friends and held the ornament hangers I made below...
These are the ornament hangers I made for my red hat gals ...they were fun to make
YES...There is a Doctor in the house!!
I hope your dreams take you to the corners of
your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your
opportunities, and to the most special places...
Your purpose in life is
to help others You are
and you offer comfort to
those around you.
It pains you to see other
people hurting, and you do
all in your power to help
them. You take on
and don't mind personal
sacrifice.You are the
ultimate giver.In love,
you offer warmth and
protection to your partner.
You often give too much of
yourself, and you rarely
put your own needs first.
Emotions tend to rule your
decisions too much,
especially when it comes
to love.And while taking
care of people is great,
make sure to give them
room to grow on their own.
