Menopausal, insomniatic, romantic, left handed,right brained & more than likely a bit ADD. Mother of two whom have left the nest.
I live in a little 90 something bungalow in a Historic district, with a heck of a commute to work (3blocks, all down hill.!!
Share my cozy home with 4 critters.Two dogs-Golden Retriever and Black lab & two Tuxedo kitties. They see fit to let me decorate however I choose and never question what's in the bags I bring home-unless it appears to be edible or squeaky.
The whole blog/art thingy started kind of by accident a couple years ago-it has just grown exponentially!Love it ALL,,women I've met, and trying new things! Not getting rich selling my creations, but again, it has grown exponentially and I have product in several shops in Washington-Too fun!
NOT doing Etsy right now, BUT if you see something you like, let me know, Happy to make something special.
Thanks for stopping by!
Early this morning, I lost my "Bestie." My dear Mary girl passed away from Cancer. Ironically, I was reading this letter from her, that she'd sent several of us August of last year. She'd already had a tumor removed from her spine, and one of her kidney's was also removed.
This is the beautiful Letter she sent to us,,,,,about her life.
"Hello to my dear friends and family-
For today my one true
sentence is: My life is good. It is the truest thing I know at this
moment. Even when I walked in that black cloud, a part of me knew that
this, too, would pass and somehow, sometime, I would feel human again.
Right now I know that I have had the best life can offer. I also know
that I have to keep that thought firmly with me.
I have to keep
remembering that I had the best childhood, the best growing up years. I
have the best husband, and I have the best family and grandchildren for
me. I've had the best experiences in life and love. I have traveled,
although never far enough or long enough. And I have experienced many
Being loved by Ross Being touched by a hummingbird Being Mom to Brodie and half the neighborhood kids Being a partner in the best of marriages Being a big sister Being intelligent enough to learn from life's lessons Being a lifelong friend to my dear five muscateers (you know who you are) Being able to work Being able to get up each morning Being able to go anywhere I wish
My life is good because:
I know that I am truly loved I know that my only child Brodie, my "best accomplishment" loves me and chooses to be with me I know that Brodie, Mary B, my grandchildren and family and friends love and support me I know that my health can be fragile I know that I am capable of dealing with whatever comes I know that I have passed my hardest tests I know that I am not alone I know that I have finally learned the lessons that Ross tried to teach me
Thank you, Ross Thank you, God"
-This was and IS my Mary Girl. Can't believe she is gone. She will always be a part of me!!
I loved this woman, body and soul. I'm going to miss her SO!! If you've read this far, THANK YOU~ we're all going to get through this, because that is what SHE would want!!

"Last night, my kids and I were sitting in the living room and I said to them, 'I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependant on some machine & fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.'
They got up, unplugged the computer and threw out my wine!
They are SO on my sh*t list!'"
Seemed like a good ideat at the time

Is this a BAD sign?
It's a Full moon tonight and my son brought over takeout Chinese food. Should I take it as a BAD sign that my dog ate MY fortune cookie,,,,fortune and all???
Decided I'd love the Job!
Ever thought about applying for the job to be the one who gets to design the new words that we type into the security code boxes to get our posts through?
I think it would be a whoot! I think my first word would be geebitz or whrylstra or bezanorz.
What would YOU dream up?
