Happy 12th Birthday!


Happy 12th Birthday!

Family life is many things
And one of the nicest joys it brings
Is having a daughter as dear as you
Who's thought of in a special way
Not only on a special day
But warmly and with love
The whole year through!
Happy Birthday

Destiny's Birthday

A birthday should be fun and exciting but planning Destiny's birthday this year is well rough to say the least. I'm so broke but thankfully my sister and her hubby are sweet enough to help out. (I'll pay them back as soon as I get my first pay check in a few weeks ^_^) But now is the time we need to get her cake ordered but she wants Twilight. Normally its not an issue at all but this Wally World here doesn't have any Twilight! Makes me wanna scream and cry but luckily we can take in a picture and they can put it onto the cake so I let Destiny pic out a pic tonight and Heather and I will go in tomorrow and get it ordered before i go into work for a long 7 hour shift. Then I can come home and bake 2 dz cupcakes and then decorate them so Destiny can take them to school for her class on her birthday. So here is the picture we are going to put on her cake:

She insisted we find one with all good guys and bad guys on it. And the cake will be black with pink borders. Yes black and pink are her 2 favorite colors atm.

Happy Halloween!


The kids really got into the spirit of halloween this year. We all had a ton of fun till the wind got so bad we were all freezing so we had to call it a night. I hope everyone enjoyed Halloween as much or more as we did!

My Lady of Snow Update

I didn't realize how long since my last update. But I have been feeling better lately and picked up my stitching again. This is one piece i made sure made it to Ohio with me. I filled in the white areas on the bottom left and then a big chunk of blues and then filled in a bunch of the beads. I hate seeing empty spaces so im beading as i go as well.

Lots going on

I'm truly sorry my posts are far and wide as of late. But i'm going through a lot and haven't had the time to craft of any kind.

#1) I'm getting a divorce from my husband. July 6 will make 11 yrs married and 14 yrs together. The longest relationship i have ever had by far. Though I am OK with all this. I am the one that asked him for it and i have had over a year to prepare myself for it. He cheated on me and more then once. It will never stop and he was never interested in seeing a marriage counselor either. Also for some unknown reason he was always able to be honest and truthful to whoever he was with but never me. The only honesty I have ever got from him is when he admitted to his many flings. I honestly don't/can't trust a single word that comes out of his mouth. There are many other reasons why we are divorcing but this seems to be the main reasons.

#2) I'm moving (see #1 for why) to Toledo, Ohio. My older sister lives there with her husband and two boys so I am going to go there for awhile while i start school in a career i enjoy. It won't be full blown college, just a technical school. Times like this I am thankful I have a wonderful family willing to support and help me out. I will try my best not to be a burden.

#3) My girls and I fly out in about 9 more days and i haven't packed much at all so this will definitely be a busy week. But my monster in laws have suddenly decided this is the perfect time to show up and make my life miserable a bit more so we will see how this week goes. I don't want to be rushing to pack the 2 days before i fly out.

Once I am settled I will try and post more but for now this has to be this way.

Meet Tyson


He's our new to us 13 month old boxer pup. Though he is nearly as tall as my waist so i'm not sure how much i can call him a pup. One of hubby's co-workers said his sister was looking to re home him free. She is divorcing her army husband who is getting a dishonorable discharge. idk why and its none of my business. Anyway she doesnt wanna move 3 kids and a puppy so we are fortunate enough to get him. He's really sweet and doesnt jump thankfully. Even my little Pomeranian likes him until Tyson gets near his peanut butter bone then Duke gets a bit nasty with him. Which in turn makes Tyson sit there and cry and cry and cry so hubby will be going back to the toy store and getting Tyson his own peanut butter bone :)

Polymer Clay delivery and realization w/questions

Joann's recently had a huge sale on polymer clay on there website for $1.50 USD per package vs the normal $2.50 to $3.50 USD they normally are. So i order a bunch to replenish my stash and a little more Sculpey liquid clay as im running low on my other bottle.
Recognize the background? LOL you should as its one i found in the remits bin at Joanns on my trip to OK.  Destiny is using it to make an outfit for her AG doll. 

And i realized i'm about 15 posts from my 500th post. I feel i should do something. We should celebrate. Maybe i'll do a contest. Please give me your opinions on it and if i do, what would u all like? A little something from each of my hobbies perhaps? Or maybe the winner gets a choice on what kind of stash to send out of the options i provide?

My trip to Oklahoma - the aquarium


This is the end of a large cannon with an enormous green eel in it. I was amazed and in shock. I would definitely swim away if i ever saw this guy in the ocean!

Hm ok these are what are visable off my camera lol the kids had mine so hubby was in charge of taking the pics. I'll have to copy them over so i can show you guys some others :)

My trip to Oklahoma - the crafting side

My family decided that spring break we would drive the 10 hrs to Oklahoma to visit with my mom, aunts, uncles and cousins. It turned out to be a long week but definitely worth it as we got to spend Easter day with everyone. Boy was the house full! One of my aunts is a quilter and while i was there she gave me a ton of fabric to bring back with me.

and of course i had to stop at the local Joann fabrics and pick up a few things

Oh I also noticed some stitched pieces around my aunts office and found out she did them but is no longer stitching so she passed me her WIP along with the book of 12 patterns which has been severely loved. ill have to find a way to preserve them. perhaps separating the pages and putting each into a protective clear sheet.

And i got my mom into polymer clay which my girls got to play with while we are there and i made this little guy with them one night. Sadly his 10 hr trip back to Colorado didn't go so well. His wings, tail, and a few legs broke off. So i repaired him the best i could when i got home and am awaiting delivery of this purple color to finish his repairs and complete him. He's my very first dragon but im really enjoying sculpting and am tempted to take a sculpting class or two ^_^
