I wanted you to know that I am having a CYBER MONDAY sale on everything on my EBAY site! That's ALL patterns and ALL supplies discounted for you! AND there is free shipping on all patterns. If you combine patterns with supplies, I only charge you shipping on the supplies.
But, that's not all! It's cyber Monday but my sale will last through Dec. 15!
Don't miss out on my new chocolate muslin, ready to craft dyed muslin, white glue sticks for your cinnamon rolls, etc. , and more!
I hate to say, my website is not working correctly and I will have to wait until the new year to get it back up and running properly so please only purchase through EBAY if you can. If not, please don't buy from the website and check out as it will not include the sale price, but you can send me an email with your order and I can give you a total.
I can't wait for the new year! I have so many ideas and new patterns in the works!
Not sure if I'm continuing my wholesale business. I have a lot of decisions to make and I sure miss creating!
Here's the link to my EBAY. You can look it over and send me an email with your order, then I can let you know how much to pay. You can send a money order too, which we aren't allowed to accept on Ebay. Thanks!
Thanks to all of you who supported my sale to get her surgery! I think I made all the money for it with your help!! I really appreciate the nice emails and your love you showed for animals!

I find this very hard to endure, but I guess I'll live! lol I hope this year doesn't go as fast as the last 17 years have gone! But it probably will and I'll find myself lost and wandering around trying to figure out what to do! lol I didn't even get her picture! I always take a first day of school pic! ARGGG!!
My babies are all grown up and a new chapter of my life will begin I guess! At least I'll try to face this bravely and look forward to her going to college and being a "grown up" and on her own and chalk it up to another success! My grown boys are great too!
Still working on orders as fast as I can and looking forward to new patterns and designs for you!

Also, I have added some chocolate muslin in 1 yard lengths for your crafting needs! This turned out awesome and it's already quite popular! You can find the chocolate muslin on my website under supplies! Thanks!

I've been living with a washer that only spins out on a couple of the settings, permanent press and delicate. On the other cycles, it just flat won't spin out and added to that, my knob to set the cycle broke off a long time ago! I noticed too that it wasn't really rinsing too good lately, but hey, it still works!
Then my dryer started making this strange noise? Hubby said sounds like the bearings. Oh great! Well, my dryer bit the dust!! Yippee!! lol
I got to get a new washer and dryer yesterday! I love it!! It's beautiful and it works! All cycles work! The dryer doesn't whine! It's wonderful! I can't wait to have some laundry to do!!!
It's the simple things in life that are important to me and I have to admit, it doesn't take much to excite me! lol Had to share with you my simple pleasure!
Have a great day today!

Isn't it the prettiest cake!?
And I got the most beautiful floral bouquet from a dear dear friend with a birthday balloon! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
The flowers are much more bright and colorful than in the photo!
I've had such a wonderful day!
Missed my middle child and my daughter who had to work but that's how it goes!
And so it goes............another day older........

Have a great day everyone! Becky

This is always such a stressful time for the girls and moms too! All the girls do the same cheer, city wide for the 3 schools we have, all at the same place. For our school, there are 45 girls trying out for 30 positions.
Wish us luck and hope I make it through this LAST tryout! Maybe I'll be saying WHEW, when it's over! hehe

Saturday is cheer tryouts and the stress is on. It's such a scary time for the girls. There's 45 trying out for 32 spots, 20 being varsity, 12 for JV. My daughter is going to be a senior so this is her last tryout. She has mixed emotions about it.
I'm still trying to get back to normal here but I have another trip to the store this morning. I forgot to get bleach! I like to start my sewing in the morning, but when I have something I have to do away from the house, I like to get that all done first.......so guess I'll go jump in the shower! Have a nice day everyone!

The service was beautiful and as mom would say, "I had a great turnout!"
I will never forget everyone's kindness. Thank you. Becky
My mother came from a very poor family, who lived through the Great Depression and many other hardships along the way.
She always talked about sharing shoes and clothes, walking long distances to school, and not having enough food to eat.
But she was the best Mom to me, and my 4 siblings, me being the youngest.
My Father was killed when I was 6 and she carried on the best she could. She worked at home doing invisible re-weaving, a self-taught procedure that was in pretty high demand. Along with that, she worked at J.C.Penneys, then a slack manufacturing company here, and then at Kmart, where she was a wonderful assistant manager of the appliance department and she loved her job.
I was the last left at home and we got by pretty good. Once I married, Mom was my constant friend and companion, always sharing in the ups and downs of motherhood with my 3 children. She always listened intently to my stories, laughed and cried with me, and offered her best advice, or just a shoulder. I always marveled over how she always knew just what to say.
With my last child, we shopped together and had many lunches full of chat and love. I couldn’t have done it without her.
She was always a very loving, kind hearted person, never meeting a stranger, and never hesitating to give what little she had to someone in need.
As she aged, I saw changes in her and knew she was slipping away to Dementia.
She lived with me for about a year and then we placed her in a nursing home.
She’s surprised every doctor, many times with her determination to go on.
She turned 90 on Jan. 19. She hardly has any gray hair!
She just got out of the hospital with a mild case of pneumonia but her oxygen is low, and she can’t swallow food or water.
I’ve been trying to come to terms with the thought of losing her for a long time, but it never quite takes. I don’t know what I will do without her in my life, except remember all the kind things she said and did and what an impression she made in my life and many others’.
On Feb. 19, 2009, they called me from the nursing home to tell me that Mother was near the end.
We gathered at her bedside and I saw her take her last breath.
I can’t believe the emotions I have gone through and I feel so alone.
I have a wonderful family all around me and I know that live will go on and everyday I will remember something my Mother shared with me.
I wanted to share my story because for those of you who have your parents, you are lucky. Please enjoy them, be patient with them, and spend time with them before they’re gone.
Today God has in his presence in heaven, Lola Phillips Boon, one of his very best creations.

Last year, I was on Southbeach Diet, and it worked great but I'm finding when trying to get back on the program, I cannot eat the food! EGGS in the morning simply turn my stomach! Salads, come on! I wore them out! They're great for a bit or 2!
So, help me find a way! What diet, or eating habits work for you? Please let me know! I can use all the help I can get! Any words of encouragement are welcome!!
I'm finding it hard to get back to work and have not gotten all my sorting and cleaning done. I really need to clean my craft room to get back to work!
So, for this year, I'm going to write some new patterns, try to have lots of new items, and keep this blog updated better than I did last year!
Christmas was wonderful here this year. Not a lot of money to spend and I think that's why it was so much better!
My apologies to all who have come here to find nothing new! That's really bad, right? So sorry for that!
Drop me a line and inspire me to get going!!! Have a great day!!! It's suppose to be 80 here in Oklahoma today! Then, as they say, the bottom falls out!
