A New Year's Poem

I wrote this in 2008, but the sentiment still holds true.

My Wishes For You
As one year comes to a close,
and another year starts anew.
It’s time for me to share the list,
of wishes I’ve made for you.

May you find love’s sweet reflection,
in a cherished person’s face.
And experience the joy,
of a small child’s warm embrace.

May you get the chance to stop,
and smell a lovely rose.
Or take a walk along the beach,
and feel the sand between your toes.

May people accept you as you are,
and not try to make you change.
This is the way God made you,
so it can’t be wrong or strange.

May you never feel adrift,
without a guiding star.
No one is ever truly lost,
because God knows where you are.

May angels find you when you’re not looking,
and give you cause to smile.
Let them lift any care or sorrow,
if only for a while.

Here’s something to remember,
as you sing of Auld Lang Syne.
One heart holds you in fondness,
and of course that heart is mine.

Oh The Irony!

I don’t have Wi-Fi at home yet, so I had to find the nearest AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot so that I could finish registering my Kindle. Where is the nearest AT&T Wi-Fi hotspot? The local Barnes & Noble book store.

That’s right, I had to venture into enemy territory to complete my mission.

I found a chair in a remote section of the store and fired up my Kindle. In seconds, I was connected. It was wonderful! I felt like a spy transmitting from behind enemy lines.

I found it funny that I had to go into Nookville to work with my Kindle.

I hope whoever reads this gets a giggle out of it, if not the irony of the situation, then the silliness of a new Kindle addict.

P.S.  I'm working on getting Wi-Fi for the house.

I'm A Happy Camper!

For the past couple of years, all I've been asking for for Christmas was a job for Jimmy and health for the whole family.  I must have been a very bad girl, because I didn't get any of my wishes.  This year, I decided, "To hell with it, I'm going to ask for something that's just for me."  So I wished for a Kindle. It didn't have to be a Kindle Fire, I just wanted a basic Kindle.  Guess what? I got one!  Billie, my bestest friend in the whole world gave me a Kindle for Christmas!  Woo hoo!  So far, I've downloaded 50 books onto the little bugger.  I've read one (Death Of A Cantankerous Old Coot, written by my friend Teresa Watson), and I'll be finishing up Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, which I started reading on the computer.  After that, who knows?

I'm on Google+

If you're on Google+ too, add me to one of your circles, and I'll add you to one of mine.

Hello Again!

It's been so long since I last wrote anything, that I couldn't remember how to get back in here.  I'm a full fledged member of CRAFT (Can't Remember A Freakin' Thing).  LOL!!  Be back soon.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

Oh Joy!

Our local gas and electric company is working on a valve that they put in a few weeks ago.  As a result, we have no heat or hot water this morning.  UGH!!

Would a heads up be too much to ask?  If I had to get up a bit earlier to get a shower in, I would have.  God only knows how long it will be before everything is working again.  Jimmy and I have to go shopping, so I'll have to wash up using cold water.  My arthritic joints are going to love that.

Oh well, let me go make up the shopping list, and start to get myself ready to go out.

Catch y'all later.

Introducing Mirna!

Mirna is my newest angel.  She is from Croatia.  A friend asked if I could design a Croatian angel because her favorite actor is Croatian.  A lot of my designs come from friends' suggestions or requests.

I've been busy!

Yesterday, I sent an angel order off in the mail.  I also mailed out a gift angel to a friend who wrote a lovely story for me as a Christmas gift.  The story included my cats Annie & Nigel, and some of my angels.  I'm going to work on a version of the story that will include pictures of Annie & Nigel, and the angels mentioned in the story with them.

It's going to be a good day!

Winnie Pegg has gotten raves reviews, so I'm very happy about that.

I got an order for three Ludmilas, the Polish angel, so that's really good.

Add to that, today is the Daytona 500, and that adds up to a fantastic day.

Woo hoo!

Saturday, February 19, 2011


Winnie Pegg, my Canadian angel.

Hope all of my Canuck friends like her.

Best Laid Plans

Well, I didn't get Ludmila, the Polish angel finished Tuesday like I planned.  I didn't get her finished Wednesday either.  I did however get her finished today, and here she is.

Now that Ludmila is finished and posted, I can start on what seems to be the most anticipated angel I've even done, my Canadian angel.  I'm a bit nervous that she will live up to everyones' expectations.  All I can do is make her, and hope for the best.

Good Morning!

We getting our taxes done today.  Hopefully we won't end up owing too much.  With Jimmy on unemployment, they haven't been taking out any taxes.  He did work a few days, and they did take taxes out of that income, but I don't know if it will be enough to keep us from owing anything.  Now that we have no income coming, since unemployment ran out the end of 2010, any money going out, is a bad thing.  I don't know what we would do if we didn't have some savings in the bank.

After taxes, it's off to shopping.

When we get back from shopping, I'm going to finish the Polish angel, get her photographed, and post her online.  Hopefully people will like her and want to order her.

Oh well, time to feed the cats, and get myself dressed.

Catch ya later!  Have a wonder-full day!

I'm So Excited!

Besides Angharad selling, I have orders for 2 Canadian angels.  I haven't even debuted the Canadian angel, and people want her!  How cool is that?  I came up with a name for her yesterday, but I'm not going to reveal it until she makes her debut later this week.

Sunday, February 13, 2011

Woo hoo!

Angharad is a hit.  In fact, a friend wants to order one.  Yay me!  (How pathetic am I?) 

I also want to take a moment to wish Peter Tork a happy 69th birthday.  I hope it's extra special Peter.

Introducing Angharad!

Angharad is a Welsh angel. She is named after the character from How Green Was My Valley, portrayed in the 1942 movie by Maureen O'Hara.

In Stitches Again

I'm back in "Angel Design Mode" again.  I've started on a Welsh angel. When she is done, I'm going to start on a Polish angel, and then a Canadian angel. I always get excited when I'm designing new angels.  I can't wait to see how they'll come out.

The Super Bowl Angels Are Here!

Introducing Patsy the Packers fan

and Suzy the Steelers fan

What do you think?

Saturday, January 29, 2011

In Stitches

I'm taking a break from working on 2 new angels.  I've decided to make angels in the team colors for the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  I started the Packers one yesterday, and hope to have her finished by tonight.  I'll start the Pittsburgh one tomorrow.  I'll post them as soon as they're done.

Make it stop!

It's snowing, again.  They were predicting a storm to start today, but it wasn't supposed to start until the afternoon.  It started before 9 am!  Enough already!

Billie and I are supposed to go over to PetsMart today for our shift with the strays, but Billie called to say she's not coming.   I still have to go over to get cat food.

Jimmy has a doctor's appointment this morning, so I guess it's either wait for him to get back, or walk over and take the bus down, and wait down there for Jimmy to pick me up.  UGH!!!! 

Saturday, January 22, 2011

Here's Holly!

This is Holly. She is a Christmas angel.  She is one of my newest designs.  It is never too early to place a Christmas order by the way.  :-)

Baby It's Cold Outside

I hate winter!!  There, I said it.  This winter, it seems like we're having a snow storm a week.  It probably wouldn't be so bad if the temps would warm up a bit after each storm, but the cold air lingers, so none of the snow melts. We have snow in the snow piles left over from the December 26th blizzard! Cold I can handle.  Damp I can handle.  Cold and damp, I can't handle.  Is it Spring yet?  UGH!!

Friday, January 21, 2011

Introducing Pavla!

Pavla is one of my newest angels.  She is from the Ukraine.   Do you like her?

Wednesday, January 19, 2011

It's Wednesday!

That means it's the day to run errands with Billie before we go play with the kitties at PetsMart.  I love Wednesdays!

Monday, January 17, 2011

Introducing Clara

Clara is one of my newest angels.  She represents the Red Cross.  Isn't she cute?

Shopping Day Ahead Of The Storm

It's supposed to snow, starting after midnight, and dump a foot to a foot and a half of snow on us.

Since Tuesday is our usual shopping day, and we were getting out early, we didn't anticipate any problems getting everything we needed, and fortunately, we were right.

There was plenty of milk, bread, and other essentials in stock at the 3 stores (Walmart, BJ's and Stop & Shop) that we went to.

 I'd hate to have to go out at around 8 or 9 and try to find anything.

Tomorrow, Billie and I are supposed to work our shift with the cats at PetsMart, but if the snow is bad, we're going to stay home.  We love the cats, but we're not going to risk our lives to get there.

Long time no see!

Wow!  It's been a very long time since I last posted.  A lot has happened since then.  I've created a page on Facebook to showcase my angel and bear designs, and I've even sold a few.  I've also designed a few new angels since Lass made her debut.  I'm really proud of all of them.
