Idaho here we come.

Our first truck load if boxes and misc. Belongings that we can live without for the next three months will be in the road to our new house tomorrow. We anticipate  two more loads not including the truck with the camp trailer. We will miss Brentwood, but are absolutly excited about our new life in Idaho.  We have a lot of work to do, but am ready to take it on. We have always wanted to grow our own organic garden. Firm believers in the homestead lifestyles.

Happy valentines day

I just love Valentines Day! It's my wedding Anniversary and I just love the whole Valentines, Cupid, hugs ans kisses kind of day. I also believe that everyday should be valentines Day. Don't wait for a Holiday to show,and tell those you love that yes,indeed you do love them. Allways, treat others as you would want to be treated and allways  tell those you love that you appreciate them.  As you know, I am a active member in Mary Jane's Farmgirl sisterhood. Pictured here are Valentines cards, Atc cards and a few tags I made for valentines Day. Like I said, I just love this Holiday. Happy Anniversary to my loving husband and best friend Ken.

Update on me and another Artist Trading Card ATC Swap.

Hi everyone, or anyone.. whichever the case may be.    I a m on the mend, was hit pretty hard with illness, but am on my way to a good recovery.  It's been 2 months, and I lost 34 pounds.   Strict diet from now on.   Every day is different as far as pain and recouperation goes... but Im determined and stuborn.   Just ask my kids.  Just greatful no surgery needed.

Lots to share today besides illness.  Lots of wonderful things... I love the Mary Jane Butters Farmgirl connection forum.  I love to participate in the many swaps that take place. Love making all the stuff, and swaping items with other women in the group.   One of my favorites is the ATC swaps.   Im posting a couple pictures of the ATC's that were in my mailbox on Monday, along with the cutest little atc holders.
