tis' the new craze....

Two Peas in a Pod is seriously the new craze with my friends, their friends and my family! I attended a party in July and ever since then I've had my own party and 7 more to attend. Every time I attend a party someone books a party which I can't help but attend!!!

Anyway, my party in August was a hit. I've had other home parties before but the outcome on my attendance for the purse party was a new record high. I had 40 some people invited and 22 attended! I know about 50% is a good ratio but I couldn't believe it! There was only 1 person that didn't come who said that they would, but they called! Crazy!

So from my party I received a hostess gift (picture to come) a "Boxy Roxy" in beautiful orange, brown, green and blue fabric. I also received $10 off at my show because I booked off of Jen's show and I received 75% off my first item, 50% off my second item and 50% off my third item. This rocked my socks off!!!!

From here I ordered my first item at Jen's party:

This, my friends, is an accessory bag in Amy Butler's Geisha Fabric in Olive. Isn't she just wonderful. Her purse in my purse is to hold all of my coupons, appointment cards, OSU face tattoos and band aids. It's all of the things that are in my purse that just make it a mess. My current purse is a bit of a black hole. Stuff goes in and it very rarely come out. With the help of my accessory bag, this is less of a challenge.

From my party I ordered a number of things that are still being created. However one of the master pieces is complete and I just got wind of this today. Please feast your eyes on this beauty...

This is called the St. Mary's and in Trish's blog you can read about why it called such name. I love her! I have yet to see it in person and try her on but I'm positive that I will love her even more in person. I love the red accent!!! This bag will be especially great for tailgating excursions!!!

Thanks so much Trish!

So, if you are interested in her products, you may visit her etsy site and speak with her there or if you are local, leave a comment and I will get you in touch. All of her bags are machine washable, she's coming out with new designs monthly and her fabric choices are just amazing. Amy Butler and Alexander Henry are some of my favorites that she carries but she's always trying out others and will take suggestions if you have them!

Anyway, enjoy and if nothing else, thanks for letting me show off me beauties!!!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
