New In My Etsy Shop

Ok so here is what I have been working on....
First let me say that my inspiration for this is my wonderful mom who passed away Sept.2 2014.
I took care of her for 7 years after my dad passed away.  It was one of the most wonderful years of my life, my mom is my best friend and has always been there for me. It has been a hard few months with out her but I know she is here is spirit...


My Sweet mom had a bad lower back and sciatic nerve pain on her right side so I made her some rice packs that she could use to help her with the pain..  She would sit in her recliner and have one on her lower back and the other one would be on the side from her hip going down her leg
So this is what I have been working on..

I have two sizes.. the square one measures 9 1/2 x 10 inches. and can fit comfortable on the lower back or any part of body as needed..  The rectangle one is 5x 21 inches and it can fit along the side of the leg, around the neck or any part of the body. 
What make these different then other rice packs is it has a outer pack that can be taken off and washed to keep it fresh and clean.
                                           There are ties at the top to hold it in when in use

The inner pack is  a flannel sewn together with 4 pockets of rice evenly placed in each to keep the rice more even during the heat-cold therapy
                           Just have to place in microwave for heat and the freezer for cold pack

Here is some more of the  "Hot-Cold Rice Pack with Washable outer Pack"

                                Come take a look at my etsy shop at

"Miss Molly"

                                             Say Hi to the newest member of my family
                                                                    " Miss Molly"

She is the sweetest little dog, she comes to me by total accident from my boss at work.  Him and his wife felt like they didn't have time for her and so they were looking for a good home for her and my daughter's roommate works with me at the hospital and knew that I was thinking about getting me another puppy and mentioned to him that I was maybe interested in her.  Well we kept her for a weekend while he was out of town and we were sold.

I got  a shih tzu puppy about 18 to 19 years ago... he name was "Sir Maxwell Benard"
Max for short, and I got him for the reason of I was suffering from Anxiety/Depression and was advised to get a dog to help me through the tough time I was going through and I loved that dog so much and yes he helped me through some really rough times.  I really didn't think I would get another dog after he passed away cause I really loved him and didn't think I could feel that way about another one again, and then when I saw Molly and those big eyes just stole my heart..
So If anyone who reads this post and is suffering from depression or has any anxiety maybe a sweet this puppy like Molly just might be something you want to get

Where did summer go...

                            I can't believe that Summer is about over and Fall is fast approaching...

         The grandkids are back in school as of this last week, and the canning season has arrived

                         So the spaghetti sauce is being made and some of the corn is in the freezer.

                                                for the season with many more bottles to fill

                                  So Welcome Fall and bring on the produce cause I am ready for you  :)

Five In one!!

I am so excited I sold 5 hats in 1 day... Well it was to the same person but oh it feels pretty good right now.
I think I am to hard on my self and never think it is ever good enough, so I am really nervous and anxious at the same time to hear back from this sweet lady who bought these for her grand daughters

                                           The hats go from 1 and a half years to 8 years

                                                She picked their favorite colors for each one
                                          and I added the accent color to go along with it

       These pictures don't show very well but there is a matching ribbon to go with the
       flower in front.  I loved making these hats and hope that these girls will love wearing
      them.....  From my home to yours... have a good weekend everyone....

Spring is here....

Hi everyone, I don't know about you but I am so glad Spring is here... I am ready to get my garden planted, flowers in and smell  fresh mowed
It is so pretty this time of year to see all the blossoms on the tree's... just like the primary song..
Popcorn popping on the Apricot Tree... My little grand daughter said it looks like popcorn but not to eat and I told her... later on in the summer we will be eating what is on those trees...

So I've been busy trying to get some more things on my etsy shop.. I haven't had anything new since Christmas, and I think it is about time I get my butt in gear and start working on it again...

           Here is my grand daughter Macie wearing one of the crochet hats I have been working on
They are so fun to make and I really think it looks cute on too.... maybe it is the cute girl wearing it
It is made with tan yarn and has a crocheted flower with crochet thread on the front with and a button in the middle with dark pink, orange and lime green ribbon

This one is a blue and white with yellow and white flower pulled up in the front with a matching ribbon
White hat with red, white and blue ribbon and red flower and black button ... Wouldn't that look cute for a young lady wearing that on the 4th of July watching the parade and celebrating our countries birthday.....

These little pink one are for the infants , one is pulled up in front and the other one the sides are all down one has a rose color flower and the other one is brown and beige flower.

I am thinking of selling them for $20 dollars each and hope to have them on my shop this week...

What do you think???   To much or not enough...
That is the hardest part  putting a price on things  and making it worth my time but not to much that nobody wants to buy...

                                                          Happy Spring everyone!!!!!

Far and Few Between....

Sorry I haven't posted for a while, it seems life is so busy and I haven't had the time to sit down and blog... And here we are ready to celebrate Valentines Day... I thought I would share with you what we did  at the hospital where I work with the long extended care patients..

Each one decorated a envelope with there name on it and we hung it on a board in the hall so everyone could see.  This is a great idea to do with your families, you could hang them up at the first of the month and see on Valentines Day who has the most notes in their envelope...

We have ten residents in our facility at this time and I encouraged them and the staff to write a note to each one to be able to read on Valentines day...

We called it "Share The LOVE....."

So what is all of you doing this Valentines Day to Share The LOVE?????

I know one of my daughters is doing the 52 reasons she love her sweetie with a deck of cards and the other one is doing the ABC's for hers.  If you haven't got your Valentine something yet go on pinteret and there is a lot of cute ideas... Yes I am one of those who Love, Love, Love pinterest.
I actually got some ideas for myself to do for my sweetheart as well...

Happy Valentines Everyone.... Remember to Share The LOVE.....
