Giveaway!!!


Hey guys, thanks for all the input on the patio. I will be looking for more colorful pots, outside artwork, and colorful cushions. Well, I've looked all over town for cushions, pretty ones are hard to find! I will be working on the patio for the next several weeks and will post it when it's done.


On with the giveaway........


This giveaway will be held at Fort Thompson. This is a wonderful blog dedicated to reaching people for Christ! Tim is a christian man with a beautiful family. He also hosts giveaways and has recently started "Monthly Miracles". Every month someone tells a story of a miracle that has happened in their life. Tim is a miracle himself, you have to read his story Angels and miracles


it's amazing!


I am giving away 2 frames! An initial of your choice and a "Welcome Spring" frame.

Tim will have all the info. on his blog on how to register, so head on over there!! Just click on the Fort Thompson link.





Good Luck!!!!!!!


My Etsy Store is located under "My Links" on the left hand side under "My followers".


Oh my goodness, I just realized today is St. Patrick's Day and I sent Chase to school without a stitch of green! He's gonna get pinched all day, poor little guy!

Kristen, I know we all have had miracles in our lifes; my children, grand children and a husband who survived cancer. I may be selfish but there is one miracle that I haven't received yet. God, gave eye site back to the blind that couldn't see and he fed his people on fish and had plenty. My mother has alzheimers and I have prayed everyday for god to give her back to me the way she was. We use to go fishing, swimming, shopping and the calls from her every sunday where the highlights of my life with her. We use to go flying, vacations in flordia and helicopter riding for her 50 anniversary. I hold her dear in my heart but I just can't help but think that if god can do all this than why can't he give me my mother back. My daughters tell me that granny is here and I should be thankful for that she is here and that she is not suffering. I want to talk to her about my children, grand children and her great grand children. I want to hold her and tell her how much I love her and miss the Sunday calls and talking about her laying in the sun and planting her flowers. I have several large quilts that she made and I lay on them on my bed and fall asleep thinking about what she was thinkin when she made it for me. I'm not made a god I just want him to hear my prayer. I hope he does~! Glad you're back blogging again. Blossom

I just had to stop by and tell you that those frames are beautiful! OMG, love 'em! I found you through Fort Thompson! I'll keep my fingers crossed.....

Hi Kristen! What a sweet and generous thing for you to do. I've been thinking about your initial frames for awhile now. I will definitely be signing up for the giveaway.

I'm sorry I haven't posted lately. You will see why if you check my blog....getting ready for my spring show. It takes so much time.

Your little Chase is such a handsome young man. Don't you hate it when you think they might be miserable at school? I bet his friends will take pity on him or he will use a marker pen to paint some green on himself.

Your sil's bouquet was gorgeous! i would love to see more.

Wish you lived in my town!
