~A New Design, My Grand dog, and an Update~

Hello, dear friends!!

Hope you are staying well and being creative!!

I am so excited to share that I have finally finished my latest punch needle design!

It is called FOLK ART HEARTS and I really enjoyed creating this one!!

Hope you like it, too!!!

Here are a few little "sneak peeks" for you!!

It will be available soon!!


Last week we had our grand dog, Charlotte, staying with us during the day!

She is such a funny girl and she absolutely LOVES THE SUN!!!

She also LOVES to lay on the stones in our back yard and catch some rays!!
Weird, I know, but she really seems to love it!!!

Her favorite spot is this little bed and you can see her with her buddy, Scooby!!

How can you resist this face???

She is such a joy to all of us and I hope she brought a smile to your face today!!!


I also wanted to share that I will be having an Update on my Picture Trail

Monday, January 29th,  8 PM, EST!

Here is a look at what I will have available!!

The album will be closed till then, but will be opened at 8 PM with no password needed!!

My new pattern will also be available at that time as an E Pattern
and since I will be on my computer
I will be able to send it to you fairly quickly!!  

I hope you can join me on Monday!!!

Wishing you a Creative Week, my friends~

~Happy 2018~

Hello, friends!!

My family and I want to wish each one of you a Very Happy New Year, 2018!!

This picture was taken on the Polar Express, a train located in William's Arizona
and it was so much fun for all of us!!!

Our granddaughter's Bella and Sophia,
 wore the cutest elf pj's and were so excited to be riding the train with daddy!!
 This is one of Santa's helpers who had more energy than a young child!!
 Must have been all that chocolate!!

We saw Santa's village, had a cookie and hot chocolate, and sang songs!

We even had a visit from Santa himself!!

It was a special memory we will always treasure!!


I have been very busy working on a new design that I am hoping to offer very soon!!

I'm calling it  FOLK ART HEARTS, and I am really loving the colors!!!

Hope you like it, too!!!

Even though Valentine's Day is coming soon,

I always think hearts are perfect ALL YEAR LONG!!!!

Don't you??


I love old wooden bowls and was so happy to find one for my dining room table!!

This one is HUGE and measures 20 inches across on one side as it is not perfectly round,
and 9 inches high!! 

Though there are several cracks due to it's size and age, I still love it
and will enjoy displaying it in my home!!

Do you love to collect old bowls, too?
What are some of your favorite things to collect?
Would love to have you share them!!


Thanks so much for following along with me again for another year!!

Wishing you Brightest Blessings, my friends~
