Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

Monthly Archives: January 2018

I think I’ll give it another try.  I’ve always wanted to do the craft shows, which I did try about 2 years ago.  I just wasn’t prepared the way I should have been.

My lack of inventory was a problem, which I still don’t have, but I plan on doing some sewing , except, life always gets in the way.  So I need to organize my time and get myself  to sit down at my sewing machine.

I need to start creating again, using my imagination and getting motivated.  The need to do research on what the new trends are and what’s selling at the craft shows is an important step to success .

Okay, I think I know what needs to be done.  Tomorrow is a good day to start.  Right now I need to go read my book.

Yep, I am now 70 years old. This seems so amazing to me and I keep wondering where all that time disappeared to.

But I was rewarded with a fun fiesta from my family. They went all out for this occasion.

First I got a dance floor. It was a beautiful setting.

A beautiful cake with Frida Kahlo on it.

The best decorations anyone could ask for and great food and goodies, like these little sombreros made from sugar cookies.

Gifts are also fun to receive. The most precious was receiving a picture of my mom that I had no idea existed. A life long friend who is in the picture found it and gave me a copy.   I’m thinking it was taken in 1953 or 1954 in front of our old courthouse.

My family is always so supportive and loving that my heart is full of contentment.

Happy New Year!💜❤️💜❤️
