MY NEW FAVORITE THING


Hot dang, I’m so excited about my new favorite thing!  I call them Boot Bracelets.  Really.  They are jewelry for your boots.  It doesn’t matter what kind, just BOOTS.  Short or tall.  Cowboy or heels.  It’ll make ya feel like a Wo-man!  I even ordered a pair of boots just to be able to wear one.  Last weekend I made a nice handful of them and by Sunday I had already sold two of them!  But that’s beside the point.  The point is: anything a girl/lady/woman/female does for herself to add a little sparkle and feel gorgeous is a great idea.  We women are beautiful.  In fact, (I’m sure you already know this) all God’s creatures are beautiful in their own way which is the way God designed it.  We should celebrate that.  Yes, we should!  I’m not talking about vanity.  I’m talkin’ ’bout attitude.  When a person does that little something extra for themself,  self-confidence and self-assurance seem to grow exponentially.

So let’s hear if for the ladies!!  Decorate yourself!

Now for some eye-candy….

DON’T MESS WIT’ DA KYLIE!


That’s what Pete says about our newest granddaughter –  Don’t mess wit’ da Kylie!  She sure is something special.  No doubt she is well loved!  With all of our other grandchildren, who knew there could be that much love in the world??  All you grandparents out there, you know what I’m talkin’ ’bout.  We had 2 of our grands over the weekend.  It was super-energy all the way.  The oldest wasn’t here but I hope to spend time with this week before school starts.

So last night was the first time baby Kylie spent the night with us.  It was more than fun.  Her new name is ‘cuddlebug’ because she loves to cuddle.  One can learn a lot from a baby.  Showing her love is the first lesson.  The second: just don’t listen when someone thinks you can’t do something – keep trying.  Kylie is quite good at the yoga pose ‘downward dog’ – that’s the one that looks ridiculously funny – both hands and feet flat on the floor, butt in the air.  We didn’t think she could get around with that little half-crawl she has.  But she can use the ‘downward dog’ to get where she wants to go!  She keeps trying.  She’ll get there.

The third lesson: make pretty eyes and your grandparents will do anything for you. True dat. Fourth and perhaps her grandfather’s favorite:  Strange noises coming from your diaper will make anyone laugh.  Needs no further explaination…..

And that’s what she thinks about that!

Ok, so my hobbies are kind of getting out of hand.  If anybody doesn’t think so, take a look at my work space:

Gotta have bling and that’s the way I roll.  It’s organized chaos.  I wish I could say I knew where every little thing is, but sadly I don’t.  I do, however, love to explore if you know what I mean.  Want to see what I’ve been working on?
