the flu has really been going around here in Texas too. hope Alyssa bounces back fast.


Gosh you are a talented seamstress. I am working on a few projects now too, so don't feel bad about taking your time. I've been focusing more on my digital work (check out a few of my fun digital stuff on my blog if you have time) and designing for my little leage team and clients. It's amazing how similar sewing and digital design is! :) Gorgeous work. Post your etsy when you're done uploading.


Love the kitchen set! And I love the picture of you and your hubby so thanks for sharing it.

Teens....sigh! You're friend had very good insight and sometimes it does take someone from the outside looking in. Hang in there Mama, we will get these kids grown yet :-) LOL!


My Kelli was home for Valentines weekend. She spent the whole weekend in her room studing for a big exam. That is how she gets her good grades. It turns out that Grandpa is giving her a bad time right now and she needed to get away. We can hardly wait for the next four weeks to be over. Then she will be doing her internship here in town, going back to Yakima for 2 weeks in June then doing her State and Federal test and hopfully finding a job. During this four weeks Michael and I will be taking our second cruise - going to Mexico this time - will be gone from March 7-14. Will send pictures when we get back. Glad that Alyssa was home...sorry shes sick. Nice picture of you and Jeff..haven't seen one of him since you sent a Christmas card of the family years ago. It's hard to believe that it's been 20 time flies. Love Randi

I want that Daisy collection!! Too cute. I love how bright and happy it is.


I totally agree with your friend. I think she is spot on.


oh man....all this and poor alyssa too???? i think you both should just hole up in your jammies and a warm, cozy room, watch trash tv and eat comfort foods. i know people say that god doesn't give you more than you can handle...but heck, he sure does think a lot of you doesn't he? one day at a time, breathe in and out, just keep swimming and a bunch of other platitudes usually said at trying know i am here for you, playing devil's advocate, sounding board, voice of reason, whatever. you are my guidepost on the journey of teen parenting.... it is like i am following in your footsteps on the fresh snow, looking for the safe places to set my feet....hang in there darling...things will get better.

I LOVE your daisy collection! It's so bright and happy. Just looking at the pictures made me smile. :)

I'm so sorry you're going through the medical issues you've been experiencing. I hope the Doctors come up with a diagnosis soon and that it's easily fixable.

What? You really have a DH? And here I thought you were really Mrs. McDreamy-McSteamy and were just trying to fool us with all that talk about your DH. You're a great looking pair! CONGRATULATIONS on your 20 year wedding anniversary. That's quite an achievement these days and one that deserves celebration and recognition. May the two of you have another 20 wonderful years together.

Big HUGS and lots of prayers as you continue to work with John. Never underestimate the power of your unconditional love for him.

I hope Alyssa is feeling better soon, although her being sick may be a blessing in disguise as I know how much joy having her close brings you.

Have a wonderful weekend.


LOVE the daisy collection!

Hope that they figure out what's wrong with you ASAP!

HUGS on John. Hope that he gets his act together before the consequences are too severe.

Love the picture of the 2 of you!

Hope that Alyssa feels better soon. Being sick away from home is no fun and I'm sure that she's loving (and missing) the mothering....


I think you are doing just fine! With more challenges than I or you can catalog you are handling things the only way you can, one at a time, with grace and love (and the occassional rant which you are perfectly entitled too!). Tough love is exactly that - TOUGH! But we both know that without consequences, yours or others John won't learn the lessons he needs to. So hugs and wheelbarrow of support to you. The infamous DH! Glad to see and hear he's there. I hope Alyssa is feeling better soon. Freshman year is germ city for almost every college kid. Have fun taking care of her this weekend. Lastly, with all of this going on your sewing is adorable not to mention beautiful! Fabulous work. Stay well, and ((hugs)) to you too!

I'm pretty sure that picture is photoshopped, and you're really keeping McDreamy & McSteamy around. ;)

Kidding! I love the daisies Kelly. When you get your Etsy shop up and running you should offer custom work. I'd buy something like that for my kitchen!

As for John.. my husband (and his younger brother) were horrid, awful teenagers. It took some time, and a lot of growing pains, but they've both turned into really great men. Hang in there! *hugs*


A couple things
1. Pretty sewing project.
2. HUGS about the medical tests I hope they solve things quickly and easily
3. HUGS and prayers about John. My mother faced many of the same issues with my brother and yes he had to pay the consequenses before he woke up and it wasn't fun or pretty for anyone involved.
4. WOW a picture of your hubby. Glad he's being wonderful and life is good there.
5. Hope Alyssa feels better soon. I'm sure she is happier in her bed with you taking care of her

HUGS my friend
