Brief Hiatus

 (Will the unpacking never end???)
 Gypsy that I am, I've moved again!  I'm still in the process of unpacking.  I have a couple of posts in mind, but there has been a delay with the cable/internet being installed due to the asbestos in the shingles covering our rental home... sounds healthy, huh?  I just popped in to the library to take a short break from the feverish crafting I've been doing all day.  I found out about a show this weekend and I'm working like crazy to have enough items to take with me for sale.  Wish me luck!  Hopefully, I can check back in with you this weekend with an update!  Have a great rest of the week friends!!!!!

A New Blog To Read AND A Blog Anniversary!

Although I have trouble keeping up with all of my favorite blogs, I still like finding new ones to read.  And, as I may have mentioned in the past, I really love a giveaway!

The newest blog I found today is Trash To Treasure Art.
She's having a 3 year blog anniversary and is hosting a giveaway!  Be sure to visit Lynn and sign up!

P.S.  She has some extras in the giveaway too!  How exciting!!

Not Mechanically Inclined

 I've run out of extra cash in getting my new business ready.  Can't spend any more until I make some... BUT, speaking of butts, I had to have a comfy chair since I'm here at the laundromat for hours on end.  

I was so excited, the chair that I like, which just happens to be red, was on sale at Staples!  Not only that, when I got to the register, it was an additional 25% off on clearance!!!  Yay me!!!

Here's where the dilemma ensues... I have never been much of a handy-man (woman).  The chair was not the display model, but a lovely, brand-new chair, in pieces, in a box!  I brought the box into the laundromat this morning and looked at it for a couple of hours until I decided that wasn't going to get my butt in it.  Approximately 30 minutes later, Voila'!!!  (a personal peeve of mine... learn to spell that word, fellow bloggers!)  My new chair is in one piece and I'm sitting in it!

 Now, do I need LOTS more color in this newly-painted office?  YES, I DO!!!

Five Years

There's magic in a Mother's touch,
And sunshine in her smile.
There's love in everything she does
To make our lives worthwhile.
We can find both hope and courage
Just by looking in her eyes.
Her laughter is a source of joy,
Her words are warm and wise.
There is a kindness and compassion
To be found in her embrace,
And we see the light of heaven
Shining from a Mother's face.

Five years have passed since I heard your sweet voice, saw your smiling face or heard your lilting laugh...  I love you and miss you terribly.  I know some day we'll meet again, but how I long for you.
