Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hi friends! Just wanted to take a moment to ask ....Have you had your Mammogram Scheduled yet? Early Dectection Saves lives!

Almost a decade ago I was blessed to know two wonderful ladies and formed a friendship with them....Debbie, my sewing buddy and wonderful crafter , Woman, Wife, Mom and Grandma. Very young at the age of 38 her life was cut short from her second bout of breast cancer......I miss you Debbie, I am glad I had the chance to know you.

And Laura, wow, what a fabulous person. She had the most infectuous laugh! When she walked into a room and smiled you knew you just met a good friend. Laura also battled her second bout and it took her life as well.....She left behind a husband and two young children, You are soarly missed Laura.

It has been a few years since they both passed within a month of each other, but if you were to ask them they would tell you to schedule your mamogram, do self breast exams and that early detection is the key. I have been forever touched by these two ladies.....I am a better person for knowing them...................

I just made this card today in their honor, thank you for looking. The quote on the card reads:

"Do not be afraid of tomorrow; God is already there."

This card is currently up for vote! Visit and cast your vote!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not the water kind, the internet kind.....I have been surfing alot of crafty blogs. I am loving all the inspiration! So I have decided I need to upload some of the stuff that is coming from all this surfing.

As for life right now, we have been pretty busy just doing general life stuff. All good. We are still waiting for an apartment to open up so Mom can move out here....she has been on the waiting list for this wonderful place now since April! WOW it is taking so long....but I guess when God says go that is when it will be!

Speaking of God, our church building is almost ready to move into! Just 3 more services. Can't wait to see it all finished up! It is going to be wonderful especially all the space. God is good!

Anyhoo, I wanted to get this up , I have neglected my Blog for a few weeks and hope to get better about it!

Here ya go!

I love History. I love all the stuff that goes with not necessarily the war part of it...the homes, bedding, kitchen novelties, just to imagine about the people that filled those homes. I love looking at all the crafts too....however for them it wasn't crafts, Quilts and rugs were made for necessity. Not like now, where we have big machines to make them for us and make them in so many different colors as well!
This past weekend Our History Museum came to life and the opened the First log cabin and the home of the mayor of 1800's! WOW it was cool! So here are some photo's to enjoy! I hope you can see what I do when I look at all this stuff....How lucky we have it.
