About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Playing Cupid

   Hearts, the color red, glitter- so many of my favorites are popping up around my house.  I am so inspired to create, but I must get my house organized first.  It feels so good to get things in order- or at least a bit tidier.;)
   As Valentine's Day approaches, please don't forget family members that have lost a loved one.  Each year I send a package to my dear Nana, as Papa is no longer with us.  Her valentine is waiting in heaven for her, but in the meantime I will play Cupid.:)

Awwww that is just so sweet. I am ready to start doing some kind of craft for Valentine's Day...not sure what yet. Maybe just glitter some hearts!

Amen to having a more organized house! I hear ya! And what a sweet reminder to care for people who lost the ones they love!

My Grandma lives a half a block away. We moved her down off the mountain and into the valley several years after Grandpa died.

I try to give her the same brand of chocolates he'd get her every Valentine's Day. Alhtough, I know it's not the same coming from me....

That is so very sweet of you and I'm sure your grandmother really appreciates it. Both sets of my grandparents are gone now, so they will be celebrating Valentine's Day together!

That's a lovley idea to send a package for Valentines Day. My Grandma always sent me a valentine card every year until I got one of my own so I never did not have one. She is now 93 and I could send her something like that. Thanks for the idea.

Lori,

What a wonderful idea! I know a couple of ladies near and dear to my heart that have lost their loves. You've given me the inspiration to show them they still have "Valentines"!

You are such a sweetie pie sending little gifts to your Nana~
I think I will do the same for my Grandmother, thanks for the great ideas Lori!

you know, that is a WONDERFUL idea. I think I'll do that for my lovely Aunt Betty. She lost her husband this past November....I loved Uncle Joe so much. It will be a way to honor them both.

Oh man, what a great reminder. I'll send something to Nana this week.

What a wonderful thing to do for your grandma! Mine are all gone, but Chris' Grandmother just turned 100 and the wee ones give her a special Valentine.

Happy New Year!

That is sweet...I never thought of that...I need to do that for our next door neighbor...He is a widow and I bet he would love to get something from my little one...She calls him pappa and were not even related but he is always so good to her. Thanks for reminding me of this.

Love the keys...wish I had bought some at walmart when I saw them at Christmas...need to kick myself for that.

That's really sweet. Hey, I have some questions about ordering a bracelet. Could I have your e mail, so I can ask you? I told my hubby that I want 1 for Valentine's day.
