Pictures, pictures...

Little Lane Scott Sullivan .... He actually resembles a baby now!! When Laresa gave me the cd to view his pictures I couldn't wait to get to the computer and load them. I've looked over and over at the little guy... going to be blessed in August!
Seems Lane was quite happy to show off his "stuff" lol
On another note...Yesterday was a productive day for me... working on Christmas items and an order for a dear friend. Today will be much of the same... It's very very wet outside and I plan to not go anywhere!!!

I said I'd be back today with news and I am!!!

It's a BOY!!! No doubts this time it was right there in plain sight!! This grandma can start buying clothes!!! I need a job!!!

Ya ever have??

Ya ever have one of those days you just wish you could crawl back in your bed and just sleep through it all?? I have been having so many days like that it isn't funny!!! I can feel depression setting in since my son left. I know I have things to be happy about... going to see Shane in May, baby on the way etc but.....there are other things in life going on that seem to outweigh the good. For the life of me I can't seem to sell anything anymore. Really makes me wonder is creating even worth it? I feel I have been black balled from joining certain groups due to an ex sister in law that only spewed venom at my name.... I just feel like I'm spinning my wheels and just can't grab ahold of the surface to find my way. Sad thing is I know I am better than this!! So someone kick me and make me realize IT IS WORTH IT!!!

Speaking of baby.

Today my daughter has her big ultrasound at the hospital.... Hope that 80% chance the doctor gave turns in to 100% sure it's a boy!!! I haven't bought anything yet,,, just holding out for the word we know what it is...but boy when I know look out stores!!! Updates today!!!

Another wintery day on the Oregon coast... RAIN!!! Oh don't get me wrong I am not complaining,,, I LOVE IT!!! It's days like this I wanna create, just wish I knew which thing I wanted to put my heart and soul into today. Seems lately I wanna do everything!! There isn't a set goal I'm kinda doing a little of this and a little of that and not getting much done. Gotta change this!!!
My passion for chunky interesting jewelry has consumed my evening while watching tv... Here are a few I have been working on...
This was made for a special person and I won't say whom cuz she may read this before her birthday!! Needless to say.... I do love this piece.

Time consuming but so enjoyable to make. The latter piece is mine. Not sure I am finished with it yet as I think it may need pearls or black glass beads.... Two old rhinestone necklaces were in my jewelry box that belonged to my ex-husbands mom before she passed away. They have been in my possession for many years and well my love for the old rhinestones and anything that sparkles and whalah!!! I have something for myself!!! Now I am on the hunt for old jewelry pieces, broken etc I will figure a way to use them!!! Gotta find them cheap though cuz this can be one expensive hobby!!! Maybe I had better make some to sell and recoup some costs!!!
So with that said... I need to get busy!!!!

Because I needed another hobby?

Wow so much has happened since I last wrote!!! Been to the Big Island, and my son and his wife came home!!! 2 1/2 years ago he was home!!!
Had a nice visit but much too short!!! We also went snowmobiling while he was home on leave... BURR ASS cold is all I can say!!! My parents drove up for a short visit while Shane was home and before you know it everyone was gone.... My home was quiet, empty and the tears flowed. I know, nothing to cry about but there is something about a Son, that only a mom of a Son can understand. I miss him, flat out miss him!!! And yes I will see him soon... May!!!
So... to my blog title!!! Let me see, I make dolls, I cross stitch, I make wooden name blocks, I scrapbook and make cards... I, I, I,.... and I needed another HOBBY??? Well Yes I did!!! I have a love for vintage, or quirky chunky jewelry.... just something about it makes me drool!! I just wanted to see if I could do it.... So you tell me.... How is my first project?? Go ahead.. you can tell me if it's ugly, you won't hurt my feelings!! :)
I'm hooked on making stuff!!!
Today is one of those days I'm going to try and make something for a gift, work on a bunny and heck who knows what else!!! Enjoy yours!!!
