March is almost gone

It has been a beautiful month here, the sun has shined and the air was warm.  A lot of people started their gardens preparing them for plantings.  I am old school I wait until Easter to clean the winter mess and them Mothers Day I plant....I think some habits are good.  the weather here is now true Spring low numbers at night. 

Today going to studio to start creating May's Monthly Card......yes it will be a mothers Day theme for sure. I have collected some really cool Mother it should be a fun time. 

I am reflecting on how blessed my family has been lately, my daughter who has been out of work for over a year, yesterday accepted a position....Granddaughter's got hurt on softball field last Friday, MRI results say torn ACL and fractured surgery is in our horizon but she is a trooper...she is upset because chances are she will not be able to play this year at all.  

Will post new designs soon....God Bless Everyone have a wonderful weekend...

Yesterday church was great....and very was our Founders Day Service where we remember the founders of the church who happen to have been my parents.  Kind words were said, and for the first time since his death [5 years] I was ok...I still miss him dearly - but I am ok because I understand his vision and his work for the Lord.  It took 5 years but I finally got it.  He never became discouraged when working for the Lord, which is amazing as in to days world when things don't go right - most give up....he always looked for the good.  Something I am working on daily - looking for the good. I am encouraged and miss him.

Today it suppose to be nice so I have to get outside and prepare the soil or at least clean up winters mess. So cards will have to wait until tomorrow when it is cold outside, The weather in PA. has been very strange, cherry blossoms bloomed, bulbs coming up.... hay fever will be a bad thing this season.

thanks for listening.....Have a blessed day...

the loss of Life

Tonight I received word that a former friend of mine passed away..she was only 50 years old.  It saddens me to think of the young dying.  The word is correct when it says no man knows the hour or time......and that is a good thing.  I pray for her daughter who is like my own, and her son who is expecting his second child,,  May she rest in Peace.

Cards for March in the Mail

Well, I did not think it could be two weeks we moved the scrap studio to yet another room and still needs fine tuning but the necessary tools were put in place and I began.....non stop yesterday 47 cards in one day - only 5 designs so it made it go fast.

Life story: one of the children asked why do you have to make so many cards and what is your hurry it is only for sick people.  My reply was no son, they are not sick people they are seasoned people.  These are the people who came before us and made the way for where you are today - no matter what race, color or creed - we all owe honor to those who came before us.  We should honor them in anyway we can.....and the conversation went on about using manners - and respect in todays society.

This work has so many twists and turns in it - I am always surprised when doing the work of the Lord how one thing can lead to yet another.

To God get all the Glory!!!

Working on Easter Cards now....promise to post new studio pic and card soonest.......

Almost there...

The new scrapbook room is almost done, or should I say the materials are in the room and now we need to organize...not to worried about wall decor yet because i don't have the time right now..I did however start making the cards for this month.....working in the mist of a mess, but getting it done - the thought that the elders are not getting cards on their visits by the missionaries is really hurting me.  My plan is to have them ready by this Friday - pray for me lol......
