EXCITING CHANGES TO COME!!!

Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

A Year Ago...A Special Guest...

One year ago in January "us girls" had a special surprise birthday for our long time friend Linda....who had lived away for almost ten years...then moved back to Texas. She was very surprised....as her husband Rich (his idea!) and her Mother and Father from Brenham kept the secret making their way to our area to treat them to a special restaurant...hahaha...when they came to pick us up...the whole old gang of friends were hiding in the house....I thought she was going to end up on the floor she was so surprised....it was a special day laughing and remembering how we had all met and how we had helped with each one's kids growing up....etc. The reason I am posting this is to honor her as a friend and to HONOR her Father, J.F. and Mother, Bonnie and her family...but mainly because her Father went home to be with the Lord a few weeks ago. No matter how many years our parents live it is always hard to lose them....we've had them around so long....and we are comforted by their unconditional love and presence....at least that is true for Linda and Rich and their family. We will miss J.F. and how his eyes lit up when he was with his family....he and Bonnie...he was a sweet Father and husband and friend to my Father....Happy Birthday Linda(coming up soon), on a sadder note....but I just wanted to share what a special DAD you had and what a special friend you and Rich are...both! We will remember your Dad with fondness....and pray for comfort for your Mom and the family who loved him so much.
