What a crazy year this has been!?! I finally got back into the swing of things, and actually did a blog post or two... and life handed me a little scare! My sweet bunny had a small seizure last week.. and boy did it start a snowball rolling. She is absolutely fine and healthy - Thank GOD. And I did thank HIM, often. And continue to. But she had a ton of appointments and tests... she was a trooper. So needless to say, she is fine, and I am all out of sorts now!!! :)
I have been trying my hand at jewelry. I made some rockin bracelets. so fun. So I thought I would check out try my hand a necklace... I made this for an awesome chic online who hosted a swap I was in recently. I used leather cord and a charm for a closure.
Here are some of my bracelets the pictures are terrible... my little sister and I took them super fast in bad lighting/camera settings etc.
This is my attempt at the Origami Box. I am going to fill it with toy soldiers! I am also going to add a ball chain to the dog tags. I just love this set by The Greeting Farm. The side view shows the box, made with one sheet of paper! The lid with another.
I know it has been a long while since I last posted. Life has come up and bit me in the behind! I recently lost a dear sweet Uncle. I come from a very close family, crazy as we are. My cousin that I love like a sister and her brother had to bury their Father, very soon after burying their Mother. It was hard to see. The trip to Michigan was crazy as usual, and being home is heavenly. However, the drive home was disastrous. We just happened to be heading back to the Carolinas during the snow storm of the century... yes it is above 80 now, but the snow storm was... a you know what.
Being from Michigan, I know you are saying, oh whatever you have seen it before. No, no I have not, because in Michigan we have salt and plows, and people who have driven in snow before. so yea. We did find ourselves in a ditch and thank God for the kindness of strangers. I love Southern Gentlemen. And we eventually parked ourselves at a warm hotel about 30 minutes (much much more in the snow) because it turned out we had no power back at home. Thank God for good friends, who called late that night worried about us, and let us know we probably were out of power!!!
We are home now, but I am under the weather. And the weather has been gorgeous. James Paul did enjoy his snow day though!
