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!!!

 Indeed He does!!  TOMORROW at 5:30AM we leave for the big competition to take Pilar, age 10, to go to STATE  in Bible Drill, Scripture search and memorization!!!  We are excited!!! She was speech delayed beginning school at 6 and has a hard time learning at school at times, BUT, BUT she is a champion at memorizing and searching the scriptures with just giving her a few beginning words to certain scriptures!!!  She passed Bible Drill at the Church meet to go on with another town.... many passed and she was one and is going to compete at 8:00AM in the capital....we will let you know how she does....but I know how pleased her parents and especially the Lord is with her no matter what! She has really worked hard and does it to glorify Him!! Plus we have had fun!! Joan B. is our church sponsor and will go with us....so I MUST go to bed to get a few hours of sleep!!!
 Pilar and Tito at Vacation Bible School last summer....

Pilar and her siblings....on the day of her Baptism!.....Enjoy! Blessings to you and I will catch you up on our "moving" lives a little later....still packing and painting in the remodel....taking forever but slowly we'll get there!! Hugs!!! sherry
A new note........Pilar placed fifth......and got an official certificate with a seal.....she was excited and we and God were so pleased with her sincere heart to even try to do what she did! She is a winner no matter the place....especially in the Lord's eyes!!!
