Derrick my Friend

Just a tiny shout out to Derrick. He claims to have lost his thrifting and crafting mojo. Huh! He got me going back in the day to thrifting again. Love you, Derrick. Come back to the light....there's so much to make. xoxoxoxoxXo

Weimar Retreat



I had a fun weekend at Weimar, CA at a Women's Retreat Sponsored by Sparks Women's Ministries. We took a lush hike and saw these berries. Walked through tunnels made of brush. I had a very beautiful room mate, Judy P. And here is a picture of the Women's Ministry Leaders, Miss Edna, Juanita, and myself. The women there really showed my how to pray and not be so shy about it! They were awesome. The messages were well done. And I look forward to next year.

Wait a minute!










Before on Left.




Yep, I needed a change. I went from this to this. Not sure if I like it. But when I got up this morning, it didn't look like a wig.



After ob right.



Going to Weimar for a women's retreat this weekend. I'll snap some pics of the event. I will sorely miss the Candy Dance. But if I work hard this year, perhaps next year I'll be ready for my own booth. Just keep craftin, just keep craftin, just keep craftin.

Little shout out to my girls in Ohio, Kimm, Katie, Kerry and Kendra. Hope you are able to find my blog. Look around at all these amazing people blogging out there. I spend hours looking through wonderful stories and handmade and thrifted treasures. Now, if only my girlfriends were here...


And a few more pics for fun.....

summer gone bye

Inching out the last few days of summer. Still sewing, making jewelry. Sold a cool piece to my sweet friend Michelle. Throwing down a love shout out to Cheryl. So funny that I know no one reads the blog. I'm going to start counting the posts so I can have an anniversary and give away. I already have a little cute something...

Cha cha cha




Eww, I've been sick and it's been awful. And isn't that the time when you have so many engagements? showers, appointments, meetings ets..I could sleep for a week (like Sissy here) and still sleep some more. My new friend here gave me these glorious beads. She is a fabulous artist, Tango Beads, and she was just sharing. She's like that I can see. I don't even know where to begin with the little gems. I just like touching them...I started Mitzi's quilt. I have pics to post when it is done. It's tougher than I thought it was going to be. I'm tickeled that Women's Ministry went so well. I'll keep you posted on that as well. Now, it's time to do the cha cha with all this energy. ta ta
