This year has been givin wings and it took flight. My how time flies. I was looking at some pictures just last night and my how my children have grown. I promised my little Ninny that I would paint her room this year, well I purchased the paint and next month turned into several months later. I did get her room painted! I feel horrible thou, it was purchased Dec. 26th of 2007, how terrible. I was telling my son that and Ninny said, that is okay Mom, I know you were busy and you had to work. What a very understanding little girl. I had made a promise to her, to paint it this year and I did...just a bit later then I wanted too. Niiny is one happy little girl now. She loves her room. I am so happy that I got it done.
Over the break the kids and I (along with my sister and my Mom) we went and seen the Nutcracker Ballet, made cookies, played games, spent time at my Mom's for Christmas and we have cleaned. I think we have been bitten by a "Spring Cleaning Bug" and we have been going through lots of things and de-cluttering our home. That is a good thing. Makes ya feel good.
So, with that being said and the kiddies being on break, I have not worked on a thing. I think I needed a break and that will get my creating juices flowing.....I have many new ideas to share with you in 2009. Have a Safe and Happy New Year's Eve! See you in 2009. Blessings to you each of you, ~Tonya
I just wanted to say, I hope you all have a Blessed Christmas and make some wonserful Memories that will last a lifetime. MY WISH for you...click here and turn up your speakers. Love his song and it means so very much.
I would like to share one more song with you, if you have the time. Change, is what most of us think of, when we "Ring in the New Year", so here is one more, for you to listen to. It has a slow beginning, but the words move me. I know both songs that I have links to on here, give me goosebumps, when I listen to them. Peaceful Blessings to you and yours. ~Tonya
This picture is out my back window. You can normally see beyond the trees and across the field. We are in for more! I hope we escape some of it. My sister and my Mom were traveling in this and they said the closer they traveled to my area, the worse it got. Single lane driving my sister said...glad they both made it to their destinations safely. I am not going out today!
I listed these two on ebay last night, right after my handmades listed on my Selling Blog.....then, I was knocked off line again! I am getting very, very frustrated with it. I didn't even have dial-up. I have not had dial up (as a back-up) for a couple of months now. I don't much like dial-up, but I tell ya, it is better then nothing at all....
Both are listed for 5 days, to end on Sunday evening. I listed Merry Olde Soul, as a Buy it Now, so that if someone does want him for Christmas, they could purchase him and I could get him all packaged up and sent out priority...I have much to do...I have not worked on anything for quite some time now. I must get busy. I was taking care of Ninny, the kitty and having a bit of a pitty party around here. Seems as if I am the only one around this house that have "limbs" that "function"...so, I have been a bit out of sorts lately and shedding a few tears. Not that ya'all wanted to know that...but thought I would share my past couple of days. So, with that being said, I hope to move past my sheer frustration and get some things done.
It is suppose to move above zero today (knock on wood) we shall see. At least the sun is SHINNING and that helps out so much. Have a grand day, ~Tonya
If you purchase them this week, I can ship them out the very next day. They will be sent out Priority, with Delivery Confirmation, to the lower 48 US States. I will still sell out of the US, but the shipping price would have to be adjusted. If you are interested in making any purchases or have any questions, please email me at email@example.com All of them will be packaged beautifully and with a little something extra.
Thank you so much and have a wonderful evening. ~Tonya
Last night, with wind-chill factored in, it was almost 40 below. Too damn cold for me! I can't get warm, all I want to do is snuggle up and sleep. The funace keeps running and running. My Ninny was home today, yup....last night she was "tossing her cookies" (to put it nicely). She didn't go to school today. Needless today, I did not get much done. She is feeling better and will most likely go to school tomorrow. Today, in the middle of the day it was still about -9. It didn't warm up too much.
I am sorry, I have not been able to stop by blogs and such....I hope things get straightened out here and that we warm up a bit. I hope ya all have a great evening. Stay warm! ~Tonya
She has such an innocent look on her face. Well, I must get busy and update my page for Spooky Time Jingles. I hope you all have a grand day! For me, once I am done here, it is off to town I go. I must get some Christmas shopping in without KIDDIES. Just think, next friday is their last day of school...for Christmas break and I have lots to do before then. Toodles, ~Tonya
Lots of posts for one day, I know. I tried to update last night, but my internet was out for a while...I have more to share today! Spooky Time Jingles is updating tomorrow...but I will post a picture of my Sweet Snow Girl today! She is so very sweet. She is a larger, normal sized dollie. She is in Chocolate and pink and just so very neat! You will have to be sure to stop back to take a peek at her. I am waiting for more day light, to take pictures.
Also, I have been given two awards from Jenny of Wonders of Whimsy and also Laurie of Monkey-Cats Studio. Thank you so much for the awards ladies, I sure do appreciate them...but always drop the ball on them. If I do not post them, please do not be offended, as I just do not find the time to play. Ta ta for now, ~Tonya
Hope is in desperate need of sponsors. She was found emaciated and will die without help. She came in from the Auglaize County Pound and is heartworm positive. A temporary foster has come forward, but the money for her treatment must be raised. If you can help this girl, please donate by paypal or send a check to APLMC, P.O. Box 663, Celina OH 45822.
Please mark that is it for HOPE!!
Angie has an offer on her blog for her lights and this is what she is offering to help Hope. Ok Ladies, I need help. I keep thinking about this poor dog. So here is what I want to do. Any light orders 20 count brown cord ($6.50 plus shipping) and any 35 count brown cord ($9.99 plus shipping ) will be 100 % donated to this dog. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any orders. Please let me know what color and scent you prefer. Thank you so much in advance and God Bless you for helping !!!
Pea of ~Pea Picker's Primitives~ is giving anyone a FREE epattern for just posting about Hope on your blog. She is just trying to get the word out about Hope. Please won't you help. If everyone gives just a little bit, Hope will get the care she needs. Thank you so much, ~Tonya
She has taken to me, but is still a bit leary of me at times. She runs for the hills, whenever the kids are around. She comes out during the day and in the evening, when it is just her and I. I thought since she was younger, she would adapt faster then what she is. Something very terrible must have happened to her. I thought we would have gained more ground by now and she would be more trusting by now. I guess we have some major walls to break down. She is a very beautiful kitty thou. We just have to take it day by day.
Other then keeping warm. The kids keeping me on my toes and trying to get work done, that is all I have done for today. I hope ya'all have had a great day. Blessings, ~Tonya
Here is a close-up of the goodies! I already ate the wonderful candy in that lil bag. It was the BESTEST ever! I must try to get some more of that for me. *smirk* Joyce also sent "Cow Tails" for my kids (carmel and vanilla) so very thoughtful of her to think of my kids.
I so needed this wonderful package today to pick me up from our sweet Cassie passing away. She was so much more then a bunny rabbit. She was more like a kitty-cat and now we feel a "void" here at home. Time has a way of healing...Sweet Cassie is in Heaven with the Angels.
Well, other then staying warm and keeping busy, nothing much else is going on here. I hope you all have a great weekend! Toodles for now, ~Tonya
No for warning or anything, she was just fine. I think that is the hardest part, not being able to say good-bye while still alive. Poor Cassie. I hope she has wings as beautiful as she was to make her flight to Heaven. Peaceful Blessings, ~Tonya
Any who, it is back to work for me....and tonight we are suppose to get some more snow. So Ta ta for now, ~Tonya
I have finished the front, back and both of the inside pages. I was inspired by Lucille of LstL Clair Design Studio. But this I have created from scratch, with inspiration from her. I have several made and if you would like to purchase one, you sure can email me...
We are going to be her "Foster Home" until we can find her a home. She will have a vet check, get her shots and be spayed. She is very sweet, but she is really starting to feel quite comfortable...King was meowing at me and kept talking...well, I went to see yesterday what he was meowing about and this is what he was "telling" me. He kept meowing at me and then looking up! She is a small kitty and about 6 months old only.
That gameboard back there is only like a 12 x 12, so that gives you an idea, on just how small she is. We have had her for about a week now and today, she leaned to play. She would not even play with a string before...out other kitties showed her how to play. Before, she would just look at the string and didn't really know what it was for.
I must go, I have lots to do and I must put my girls off to Dreamland. Have a wonderful evening. ~Tonya
Also, this evening...I will be listing our lastest little critter that has adopted us. Full of spunk and adorable...stay tuned. Toodles, ~Tonya
Today when I took the kiddies to the end of the driveway to wait for the bus....it was only 3 ABOVE and of course I did not park my van in the garage yesterda...so my windshield needed to be scraped! Ugh! I am not looking forward to what the next couple of months hold...
On another note, I was playing with some really neat Christmas graphics last night (up until 3:30 a.m. ------PLAIN CRAZY!) and I am making something, perharps for TDIPT Mercantile or maybe Spooky Time Jingles---we shall see. I am loving it thus far and for the first time this year so far, I felt Christmas in my Heart. Such a Magical Season and so many sights and sounds to behold!
So, I posted that I was up way late last night...a bit "wired", feels like I drank a pot of coffee, funny thing thou, I am not a coffee drinker. It is my predisone...for my asthma/bronchitis. Yup, sick from about 2 weeks ago yet. They say get pleanty of rest, but how can you, when the meds you take, make you wide away and wired? Yes, I am sick quite a bit, always have been as a young kid and use to it by now. It does not get me down much...so I am like the energizer bunny, I keep going and going....
So, I stopped down to my sister's store on Wed. and she has so many FUN and NEW things in her store! Got me some NEW stamps and also some really FUN PAPERS and such. I will be incorporating some of those papers into some of my creations with something NEW for these the website updates. Yes, lots of things going on at once. You will have to be sure to keep an eye out for the updates....because they are going to be your smaller items, more affordable for this time of year----they would also be good for gift-giving...
One last thing (geez I have written a NOVEL today so far) I have received some of THE MOST Heartfelt emails from my customers and each one is more precious then the next. I have only answered one of them so far and must do that after this post...but yesterday afternoon, last night past midnight and also then again past 2 am THE SWEETEST emails. I have some of the BEST CUSTOMERS! Thank you for taking the time to personally email me. It is so nice to have it come "full circle" and know how much each of you really do treasure and appreciate my Works of heART! I hope each of you have a great day and now I must get to work. Tata for now, ~Tonya
I have to update for two sites for the 1st of December...TDIPT Mercantile and Spooky Time Jingles. That means I have to get these tail-feathers shaking. *smirk* I must scoot. Ya'all have a good night. Toodles, ~Tonya
This is another part of our family, that you have not met.. this is Sweet Cassie. We did name her Casper many years ago and low and behold, found out she was a GIRL! So she became Cassie. She is the sweetest rabbit and so loving. She will sit with you for hours. Yes, she stays in the house, in a cage and she is potty trained and goes in her little box, Very Smart!
I have so much to do and the day is a wasting, but I thought I would pop in and say HI. I hope you all have a Happy Monday. Ta ta for now, ~Tonya
I love this glitter and it shines like no other....hands down! She just started selling it and has already sold quite a bit! So hurry on over, before this shipment is gone! Annie has 3 colors to choose from now, but will be adding more colors soon. Toodles, ~Tonya
Here is a picture of my ~Merry Olde Soul~ on Spooky Time Jingles. I know I said I would not show pictures, but I thought I would show you the wonderful wool that I used. Of course I used Ann's wool...Fabulous Wool I might add! Ann is having a SALE on her wool. Hurry on over to her blog, before the sale ends...
This is a banner I just finished up for Ann. I really like the way it turned out. I made her a little banner for her Selling Blog. I have FUN with graphics, but I do not know all the in's and out's so of course it takes me longer then the norm.
Me and Ninny went to the Doctor yesterday and got us some medicine. So we should be "Good to GO" in a couple of days. Other then working on a custom order and finishing that up....and working on the computer, that is it. I hope you have a good weekend. Toodles, ~Tonya
