2 of my favorite guys!!

I had a few things made for myself this winter.......first one of Deb's purses with a picture of my Grandpa lifting a heavy sack of wheat over his head. He was probably about 20 at the time of the picture. I also had one made for my Mom and her sister...they loved them!! It has a beautiful charm made by Rita attached to the purse too.

Second, Gina took my Dad's watch (that was sitting in a drawer collecting dust) and made it into a great bracelet. This picture of my Dad always makes me smile.....he was quite a character. (She also made something else but someone special is going to be getting it as a gift so I won't post picture.)

Both of these great men are up in heaven ...........I love being able to wear them around with me each day. Thanks Deb , Rita and Gina for you fabulous creations!!

Step by step!!

Gina- Lizzy B's

Karin- Creative Chaos

Helle from Paper Tales

Okay, I dug out the work out clothes and figured getting my
body moving again would help me get out of this funk.
It is S...L....O....W.....L...Y helping.
Visiting Paper Tales the other day helped chip away at my funk too. I got to see Gina (her jewelry is the best) and meet Karin from Creative Chaos (I have been stalking her for a year) and Helle made Sarah's day with a sweet necklace. I also signed up for Val's Felt Bird class. So, working out my body and getting my creative juices moving again will surely help shake the January blahhhhs.

Happy Jack!!

It started out so great!!!
Playing with cousin Nate!!

Grandma rubbing a sick tummy

The rest of our vacation was in here................

Last week my side of the family headed up to my sister's cabin in "HAPPY" Jack, AZ. It started so great.......the kid's couldn't wait to play in the snow....the cabin was toasty warm for Wii competitions and day 2 it HIT!!!! ...and HIT HARD!! The 3 of us got the stomach flu bummer. Kind of took the "Happy" out of Happy Jack........was more like "Jack $%^"!! (Sorry...I am still a little bitter that the bug got our New Year Celebration)

We are back home now.....feeling a little bit better (after a trip to the Doc) time to take down all the Christmas Stuff.

Happy 2010!!
