Playing Catch-Up!

I finally took the time to finish Linda's banner! She (Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives) won a personalized banner, from a drawing I had on my blog a couple of months ago. Shame on me for taking so long. One reason it took so long...is I bought a new mouse (laser) and well, it was flying. I turned it down and then it still jumped around....I set my mind to it and said I had to finish it. So, here it is. I just sent it to Linda a bit ago and she does not even have it on her blog yet. I hope she likes it. I wanted to keep it simple, with clean lines (not busy), for easy reading.

I slept like a baby last nigth....I took a nice hot shower, rubbed my wrists and forearms down with Icy Hot and put my brace on my left hand....and boy oh boy, it feels so much better today. I hope it continues to feel better throughout the day.

My dollie is coming along very nicely. She is so sweet....full of vintage detail. Today, we received our BONUS taxes today...so nice! Now we can pay some bills :) That is a nice bonus, very Thankful! Today is off to a GOOD start. I hope you all have a great day...another quiet day for me, which is just the way I like it. I will just be straightening up around the house and working on my dollie, PERFECT! Toodles, ~Tonya

I really like the banner!

Jenny said...

Oh Tonya, that banner is so neat. I like her doll on it. Cute.

I am glad to hear you feel better today. Unfortunately, I don't get that tax bonus...cuz I am a late filer! ;( Oh well.

Have fun today and have a lovely weekend. Happy Mom's day!

Hugs, Jenny

Hey Tonya,
I have a lot of problems with my fingers, hangs, all my joints from being a court reporter for so many years. I got one of those hot wax things. They're not very expensive, but it REALLY takes the pain away. And if you put the gloves on that they include after you dip your hands in the wax and then let them sit for a while, it works even better. Just thought I'd share that with you. I know what it's like to have aching arms and hands, etc.
Love, love, love the banner!!!!

Love It Tonya! I am sure she will love it. How nice.
Now here is hoping we got our taxes today too. Gotta call the bank as soon as Mike is off the stupid phone. LOL

******* I LOVE MY BANNER !!!!! ****** I LOVE MY BANNER !!!! *********


It is sooo bee you tee full....

You did a wonderful, most creative job on it... it's just absolutely super... I have been busy all day looking for a vehicle and concentrating on that, and cleaning out my car for when I buy another one, that I hadn't had time to be on the computer much. And I was so surprised when I opened up my email and saw that beautiful banner.. it's just awesome !!!
I can't thank you enough for my prize ! That was so sweet of you to offer a banner giveaway !!


And I can't wait to see your new pattern !!!..oh, what is it ...

so now I am just sitting here waiting for your new pattern.....

Hugs and Blessings,

I forgot to add that the doll on the fairy of that cute new banner is made from a pattern by the one and only.....



Happy Mother's Day,

Meadowbrook Cabin Primitives said...

It's been a long day... hmmm... let me rephrase that prior statement I made.. the fairy doll on the goose is from one of Tonya's patterns.
Love the new pattern of Helga the witchy poo...


~Tonya said...

Thank you to all you gals that like that banner, so nice of you to stop by.


I am sorry that you do not get the bonus...I am shocked we did. There are so many stipulations to it, that I thought with our luck...we would not.

You have a great weekend as well. Have fun camera shopping.


~Tonya said...

Hi Carol,

I have never heard of that. I will have to see if I can find a place around here that does. It is no fun to have hands, wrists and forearms that hurt :(

Thanks for the information.
Have a great weekend.

~Tonya said...

Thanks Pea! She loves it. And I hope you got your bonus today...I am sure we can all use it.

Oh Linda, I am so HAPPY that you like the banner. You are MOST WELCOME.

If you need help putting it on your blog or changing the backgrounds, I would be happy to help you.

Thank you so much for your patience Linda. Sorry I was so slow with your banner.

Have a great weekend.
