Happy Sunday!

Well I haven't made anything new in awhile. Been on vacation trying to get things done here in my yard.
Of cause it rained most of the week.
I did plant some more herbs and weeded some of my gardens.
I learned how to make soy candles.
I'm doing them in tea cups! They came out so cute.
Went to some yard sales yesterday. Found some great tea cups!
I've decided to add this new craft to all my others for craft shows!
I love the way soy candles burn. No black soot!
Plus I'm using recycled containers like tea cups!

Best Mother's Day!

I usually have sad Mother's Days!. Since my mom passed away they have been very sad and hard to deal with.
This year I was really not looking forward to another sad day.
On Sat. night I went to friends floral shop to visit. It was great to get my mind off the sadness.
They we're all busy doing flowers and I just sat and watched the excitement.
They next morning I went to the cemetary and put roses on my mom's and aunts grave.
( Yes they were beautiful roses my friend put together for me.)
I was a little down so I stopped and picked up some muffins and a lemon danish ring and brought them to the floral shop.
I stayed there and left in a better mood.
I fell in love with this chime with butterflies on it at her shop a month ago. They were holding it for me and I was going to buy it.
Saturday night it was gone and I was going crazy. I thought they sold it on me by mistake.
Well little did I know that my dd had gone in there and bought it for me for mothers day!
I was so happy to get it!
I called my friend and apologised for acting so crazy!!!!!
Now the lesson to be learned is be quiet and wait before you say something , especially if it's a holiday and my dd goes in there.
After the day was almost done , my dh came home. My friend sent home this beautiful vase filled with roses, lilacs, twigs and butterflies. It was so beautiful.
What started off to be a sad day turned out great!
Thanks Mel!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Heather and Z!!!
Thanks Steve!

Another Rainy Day!

Well it's raining again today. It's great for my gardens but not my mood.
It's been a rough week.
I had my Dr. appointment. Went ok but I need some tests done. I've been putting them off but I really need to get them done! They can't wait.
Also I'm worried about someone dear to me. She has to get something done that really worries and scares me. Hopefully we'll have good news! I can only pray and hope for the best!
Then just deal and help her as much as I can.
I know I won't stop worrying about her but I can try to make it better for her by being by her side!
Well hopefully this rain will stop by the weekend. I need to get in my gardens. That always puts me in a great mood. It's my relaxing time after a bad week!
Have a great week everyone!

I just received my Chemo Angel patient. I'm so excited! I'll be sending cards.
This is the card I chose to send. I think it's a good one to introduce myself.
