Something more substantial later, friends.

Truth be told, I was glad to just stay home today and lay low. I guess this is as good a time as ever to open up and say that I have rheumatoid arthritis. Some days are better than others. Last night I was in alot of pain and didn't sleep well, so I was kinda out of it today. I have a great doctor and try very hard to keep a good outlook and do all that I'm able. I am blessed to be able to stay home which makes it easier for me to cope and also have the best husband in the world. I am fortunate to have a pretty upbeat attitude and really believe everything happens for a reason. Your prayers and thoughts would be appreciated from time to time. Meanwhile I will continue to create and let you see it! As the TV commercial goes, I am NOT my disease!
Is this too much information? Didn't mean to burden ya'll. Nerm

This is a tote bag made for my middle daughter, Amy. She needed something to put her lunch, books, misc. in to take to work. I think the colors are great-it's "Summer in the City" by Urban Chick for Moda Fabric. I LOVE color-you should see my house!
I am really getting in the mood to do a quilt--not a big, bed quilt. I like to make lap and wall quilts. We are blessed to have several "real" quilts handed down from parents & grandparents, so I don't really need big quilts. My daughters are too young to want anything so quaint on their beds as patchwork-ha! There just seems to be so many projects and not enough time. My biggest problem I will confess is my scattered nature. I enjoy doing too many things: knitting, crocheting, sewing, paper crafts & scrapbooking. How to choose the next project? I am my own worse enemy in that I keep buying books and magazines with more ideas. I get Idea overload!
Anyway, as my favorite expression goes, "chip, chip".

This is Adrianna, my little kitty. I love her and although she is always into trouble, she is my dream come true. My husband gave her to me for Christmas back in 2002. She is truly a prissy cat and has such a personality. I once dressed her up as a fairy princess and for the most part she went along with it, for a minute anyway. haha. I will have to track down those pictures and post them.
I love to watch the food network (because I love to cook in addition to painting) and whenever I sit down to watch it, Adrianna jumps up on the couch, curls up and watches it with me. As soon as I'm ready to head to the kitchen, there she comes to keep me company. She just lays all the floor looking up at me, meowing every once in a while. She is a very loyal kitty who loves to put her two cents in! I have only been married over a year so I try to get ideas from different shows to cook for Tom (husband). My favorites are "Paula's Home Cooking" and "Everyday Italian". I can say some of my attempts have been successful but NOT all!! I have burnt my fair share but I'm learning and that's what counts.

Hello everyone. This is Kitty (the daughter). Just wanted to introduce myself and post one of my paintings. I love to paint whimsical flowers among other things and I will be posting more very soon.
I am a free spirit in every sense of the word. Some people like to tell me that I live in my own world and I guess maybe I do. But my world is full of creativity and imagination and I love seeing everyone's new ideas. Hope we can all be great friends!
