My First Blythe!!!!!!!!!

Look at her, isn't she adorable. I want you to meet my first adoption, Miss Apple Sweet Angel. She arrived a few weeks ago from Japan. She had such a long trip that when she got here she had to take a nap. She is a Petite Blythe. I am going to adopt her a sister soon, but I have to save my money. Her sister will be a full size Blythe. She has to have a big sister, you know!!

After she woke up, Apple wanted to go outside and explore.

I turned around and Apple had climbed a tree. Mommy said please don't fall!!!!

She said don't worry Mom, I am a pro at this. In Japan, I climbed all the time.

I really love this picture of Apple. The clouds were so beautiful today.

Finally Miss Liley came outside and wanted to play with Apple. Apple really loved riding on Liley's back in the warm sun.

It was a great day, and I can't wait to tell you more of Apple's adventures in the near future.

Spring Time

Check out my other baby girl named Liley. Isn't she so cute. When she was a baby, she would trip on her ears because they touched the ground when she walked. She was just basking in the sun the other day while the kids and I were outside playing. She hates to be alone, so the only time she comes outside is when she goes potty and when we are outside.

This is my summer project. My Mom and Dad bought a new storage building and they gave us there old one. It definitely needs a makeover. I plan on putting latus around the bottom and painting the building off white with a new border color. I haven't made up my mind for sure, but I can't stand the barn red color.

Here is Miss Liley getting ready to jump up in the swing with me.

And here are my two angels riding on Abi's little four wheeler. I plan on buying them a trampoline soon and I will post pics.

I have been in such a blah lately, I have to get busy on my crafty projects especially my sewing and crocheting. I have so many ideas and so little time. I won a contest on a blog and I will post about it tomorrow.

My new book

Do you ever wonder what in the world am I going to do? I have been doing that lately about going back to school. I am 31 years old and I have been a stay-at-home mom for the last 5 years. I have so enjoyed it immensely!!! Now as my kids are getting older, I didn't know if I wanted to do nursing or keep staying home. My husband is laid off and we struggle sometimes. I got so frustrated today when talking to the school counselors because I thought I could get in the Fall of 2009, but it seems every year they add on something new and I wasn't going to get in till 2010. I just can't wait that long!! Then I discovered that I already qualify for the LPN program and later on I can finish the RN program . That will only take an additional year. I know I am rambling but I just wanted to share.

Now here is the new book I bought on Japanese Amigurumi. I love this book and it is my first book on amigurumi. Now I am addicted, and can't wait to buy more. My problem is I am also learning to crochet and I can't make anything yet, until I learn the art of crocheting. I hope to get started in a week or so and I will definitely share my journey with you.

Now check out the photos from my book. They are so adorable and I plan to make one of each or even two.

Well I better go, I am suppose to be asleep and I have to get up in 1 hour to take the kids to school.

P.S. My kids really loved this book and wants one of each. They are as excited as me. This is a great book and it is written in English.

God Bless,

As Promised

Hi everyone, as promised I want to share with you a wonderful artist by the name of Hilary Lang of Wee Wonderfuls. I found her blog about a year ago and could not wait to buy something from her. Money has been tight but finally I was able to buy some really great things from her. Check her out, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Here is two pattern books I bought. Aren't they absolutely adorable.

These are the hand sewing pattern cards. You can buy one for $5.00 or the whole bunch for $15.00. So you will be getting one for free.

These are her stichettes. Each one comes with a iron on pattern and a postcard of the finished product.

I just wanted to show you guys what I got and as soon as I get done with them, I will have to show you. My kids loved everything I got and they can't wait for Mommy to make them one of each. Well I just wanted to share and hope to be back soon with more goodies to show off.

God Bless,

My Time Away

Hi everybody, it's been along time since I posted. My husband has been layed off and his unemployment ran out so we have been really struggling lately. But the Good Lord Jesus has taken good care of us and I want to start crafting again.
I also plan on opening an Etsy store to sell my crafts I make also. If you wonder what I do make, well I can pretty much make anything I put my mind to. I really enjoy making primitive dolls and make dos. I also want to start making mixed media art.
If you are wondering who the two little angels are in the picture, they are my children who God has blessed my husband and I with. Abi has the pink hat on and Joey is giving her bunny ears. Can you believe they are 3 years apart in age. Everybody thinks I have twins. I always tell everybody that I think I could only get pregnant one month out of the year. Their birthdays are both in July, so we always give them a party together. Now that they are getting older, I don' t think that will work anymore.
Well I chatted enough today but I plan on posting about a wonderful artist named Hilary of Wee Wonderfuls tomorrow. I bought some wonderful patterns from her and I want to share them with you.
Till next time,
