Oh Warm Feet

Well it's not a card, but I have been busy. Day off and I've decided to relax and catch up on some knitting and tv shows. I started this pair for my daughter but she informs me that she doesn't like knitted socks anymore. Luckily her feet are the same size as mine, so now I have a new pair of socks. OK, they look a little odd. I've never had this happen with sock wool. Think there is enough to make another one so we'll see if it matches one I've already made.

happy day

Let It Snow, Let It Snow

The trees look so beautiful with the snow on them. There might be some inspiration for a card this morning.
So glad it didn't do this yesterday. As I had a long drive to attend my cousins funeral service. Have to drive through the city, which I DO NOT do. But with a cousin sitting in the co-pilot seat, we made it there and back just as the snow was starting last night.

Good bye Peggy Sue. I will miss you. You will always be in my thoughts. And with your little keepsake, close to my heart.

How Sweet is That?

It's customers like Jim & Gail that make it worth going to work. Let me tell you, there are a lot of very rude people out there. With business' cutting back it's hard for some customers to have patients. I work on cash at a grocery store, so I'm the last person they see. And let me tell you, some days I really have to bite my tongue and keep quiet. But then ones like Jim and Gail come along, and make it all worth going in for the day. Thank you guys for the valentine roses.

happy valentines

Peg u r Always in My Memories

This morning I recieved that dreaded phone call.  Peg passed this morning.  Although you know the end is coming it isn't any easier to take.  My cousin Peg was the same age as me.  Although growing up miles apart, we had reconnected in the last several years.  This morning she lost her battle with cervical cancer.  Her second time through it.  Peg u will always be in my memories.  You are at peace now.

Thank You Very Much

Good evening everyone.  I have finally managed to make not one but three cards tonight.  A week ago my mother in-law passed away very suddenly.  Checking herself into the hospital on Sunday and passing on Wednesday afternon.  Luckily my husband had traveled there to see her.  And he and his sisters were with her when she passed.  Looking through my stash of cards, I found there was nothing there that suited me.  I made very simple cards.  I like the look of the one layer cards.
On a happier note.  This week we attended a High School info night.  I can't believe my little girl is off to high school next year.  We learned about what courses have to be taken, and what is offered for their extra courses.  Then we got to wonder the school.  It is a fairly new school.  It was built as part of the Sportsplex where our pool is located.  Also in the same building is the Theatre.  Which the school uses.  Its a great complex. Sadly the high school that I attended was torn down this fall. 
Well hope it won't be so long to the next card. 
happy crafting
