What do you think of my newest creations??? "Annettes Angel" is a special order for one of the wonderful teachers I met while working at one of the schools. She saw something I had made & delivered & asked me to come up with something for her Gramma "Annette" who needed a reminder that angles are with her after having some serious Heart surgeries. I hand stitched each of her 11 Grandchildren on the lil heart shes holding because as Ms. Liz shared with me, her grankids ARE her heart! well Im thrilled that Ms. Liz adored her outcome and blessed me with weepy hugs...right in the middle of her art class. Soo funny, the kids were looking at me wondering who the heck I was...without my attractive(heavy sarcasm) hairnet, clippies, sweaty face& apron...they didnt know it was me...Miss Kat!!!!
Then I made and sold this new design of mine with zebra stripped scarf and matching mittens...well I left it in the cafe to show one of the many teachers always asking me to bring my work in...and who bought this snowman??? Mr. Norman (his first name) the elderly man who works in the cafeteria with me, who BTW I was replacing while he was out with corrective retna surgery. He touched my heart, he wanted to surprize his wife with this adoreable snowman, so they can pass him down when the time comes...how sweet is that????
Well last night Ronnie and I had the nicest time at the Holiday Open House where I shared last week,that we were invited to. I was in a zone...every one of my senses were tweaked and I was in a wonderland of Primitive Heaven. This woman decorated her lovely shoppe with every imaginable and un-imaginable sweet delight. The ambeince was mind blowing. Little white faerie lights twinkling everywhere, soft muted candles teasing our senses with pine, vanilla, cinnamon, a variety of 5 seperate rooms, handmade prim furniture from a gentleman "Christopher" who gave up a multi million dollar corporate job somewhere so he can follow his passion of woodworking... and work he did... Then I saw snowmen, santas, crows, saltboxes, star, garland, candles, flax, soaps, OMgoodness, my eyes hurt from looking at so much.
What I did notice was a few types of Primitives that "I" offer that she didnt have...sooo maybe shed be interested in a few of those pieces of mine. I know my painted welcome slates are good sellers, and a variety of other delights that I am already busy designing this morning.
Well 12 years ago, Ronnie and I stood in front of about 65 of our closest family and friends and exchanged marriage vows! Yikes, after this year with such loss in our life... lessons of patience, sacrifice, unexpected financial ruin, and much acceptance, I have learned while trudging down this marital pike that "MARRIAGE AINT FOR WIMPS!!!!"
I also only know for sure, I would have NEVER gotten thru any of it without the girlfriends, and a few brothers in sobriety and Christ who have prayed without ceasing for us. I thank each of you. It feels so wonderful to feel excited about anything after battling potential depression, or giving up and losing my sobriety...but not once did that ever become an option. And only because I had my prayer soldiers doing what they do best which was praying, encouraging, emailing me, sending me cards, e-cards and special love that I will never ever forget.
I didnt know how to thank any of you, so I promised to come back with vengence...I knew I was on my way when I began to feel joy again. Still not yet out of the woods, but blessings, miracles and hope restored for sure.
Thank you Jesus!
I will continue my journey today, sewing, painting, creating and probably a run to the local drugstore and pick up an anniversery card for the wonderful man I married. Pain in the a$$ but wonderful. He asked me this morning "How much time "did" the judge give us?" OH HE GAVE US LIFE, COWBOY!!!!
