Spent today learning new poto program and organizing pictures, here is a picture of the kids on Ames new ride ;)
It was nice at family Christmas, Julie got sick and left early then Syvia and Bob came to Kathie's so no drama there!

Saturday, December 24, 2011

Thusday Alexis and Jordon came over and made jewelry, Mya came too but she was sleepy and whiney. Friday Charli kept me company, had nice imes with all my girls!

Saturday, December 17, 2011

We tried to take Seth and Charli to Crackerbarrel where I met Angela Pless to git her her Family tree she bought but Seth had a melt down and went to sleep in Les' arms. Charli is spending night but Julie came and got him, we will try again... I have sold several Family trees! thonk Lottie bought 4 or maybe 5, Angela, Jenifer Harding and I am making one for after Chritmas to send to my friend in England, Sue. Also Dana Gravely ordered 2 from me I need to get done. I had to order more of the connectors and it will be first of the year when they come in. I love eBay! They are $1.99 with free shipping. I have not taken any pictures of the kids yet!

Thursday 12/15

Got the $22 Sandy Guest sent me for her sister's gifts and made $25 with Les taking the jewelry to work, Lynda Williams bought them. Putting my family tree on facebook has brought lots of interest too, have 3 to make right now. This jewelry money has been great blessing.

Wednesday 12/14

Thanks to Twila Julie and Seth got here safely!
Dr H changed my heart medicine so I am going to try it to see if I feel better.
Also have 2 people wanting earrings from Facebook plus I got another order for Family tree pendant

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

I know yesterday's post was strange but there is a reason, a Krylon can exploded in my MIL's kitchen and they want to say it is her fault. I told them they needed to make it right and posted this picture, if they do not do right I will post the pictures on Facebook. I don't feel I have a lot of choice because she has a red ceiling, china cabinet and deck. we will wait and see.
I am excited Seth and Julie will be home. I have a doctor's appointment at 11:30, I am going to tell him I don't have the energy to do anything! I want to sleep so much and just doing laundry makes me so out of breath I just can't stand it!
I did finish an afghan for Noel's baby. Suzan is not going there for Christmas she is waiting until baby is born. Nic and Jennifer are adopting Matthew so Noel will have to move out by law. I pray she will stay in Kentucky and get her GED. It is so great Nic is doing this! Jennifer can't have more children and he does love them so much. I made her a red/black and white cat afghan and little red and white hat. They have Cat in the Hat theme for nursery and he asked me to make one but I already was almost finished when he asked, LOL!
I really need to finish putting gifts together I just do not feel like it! I really wish I could have some 'life'

31 years tommorow

Les, Gina, the kids and I went to Red Lobster to celebrate our anniversary after church, I had a bad start to my day by dropping my Pepsi into my craft stuff as I was trying to leave for church, I still have a sticky mess in places, I guess I will get the Murphy Oil soap and clean the floor in the morning. Ames and I took a nap and played while Les, Charli and Gina went to see The Muppets, we had a pretty good time, he is hard to keep up with but so loving! Les goes back to work tomorrow, he still has really bad scabs on the scar down his spine, I pray he will be OK, he isn't wearing his brace as much as he should because it is rubbing those scabs and really getting it irritated. I need to call dentist in the morning because my filling fell out Thursday night and he was closed Friday. I guess I will let him do my crown.

Saturday, December 3, 2011

Terrible day at the craft show, after paying for space I cleared $22 and Kathie cleared $2! I sold 5 pairs of earrings and 1 heating pad, Kathie sold 1 sock monkey! I need to post sock monkeys for her I guess... We were supposed to stay until 4 but I was home at 3:00

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

My little Pilgrim from the school festival ;)
I have posted 823 times since I started in 2007, pretty impressive, I think since I forget to do often! Right now I am in a very tired phase, I tend to stay up late and sleep in late and take a nap with Ames. I have crocheted a few gifts but have not worked on the jewelry I need to to finish for show Saturday! I hope we have a great turn out! I got the earrings from Lori's shop and plan to use that rack because Kathie takes up so much room and I can't remember where my card table is. She added some wreathes and has sock monkeys and glass vases so I guess I will cut down and let her have the space. I feel bad she loses money doing the shows with me! I could use the extra money right now so I pray I will sell a lot of earrings!
Les goes back to work Monday, I am sad in many ways, I like having him home!

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

I went to dentist yesterday to get filling fixed until I can get crown made in March, my tooth broke last Wednesday when I was eating cookie with Ames and the filling came out.

Sunday, November 27, 2011


Charli spent today with us and we went to breakfast at McDonald's and too her to the Alcoves which she liked then we decorated the tree and made some ornaments. I was happy the game was Carolina 34 to Clemson 13. I can't wait to see if Jeremy got to watch! I was so excited I found him a black sketch pad at Michael's! It was half price because I got him a watercolor pad, too. I must box it up for him, I am going to surprise him!
Mama kept Ames, I am sure she enjoyed it, I loved having Charli alone every once in awhile!

Friday, November 25, 2011

Slept until noon, that was nice on Black Friday, LOL! Les and I got the living room cleaned and got the tree in then ate at China garden went to Burkes where we got several clothes for the kids really cheap and I got a cute board to hand Charli's art, Gina will love it! We stopped by hobby Lobby, got a couple of things for tree.

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Had to call the dentist because my filling fell apart as I was eating a cookie Tuesday so have to get it fixed Monday. Les went back to doctor because I thought he had missed a stitch but it was actually an ingrown hair.
We had our Soup and Cornbread in our new Social Hall at church-- our PAID for social hall! It is nice, too! I think that basically catches me up, oh, Kathie had her trial stimulator out, she was not happy so I do not think she will go through with the unit. She said it was one of the worse thing she ever went through. Les is doing great with his except his gout is flared in his right hand. The stitches are still bleeding a small amount but Cahrli said they looked much better than the Frankenstein look last week, LOL!

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

This is one of those days you don't want to repeat, LOL! Poor Charli threw up before Gina even left and we had to strip her and put her in tub. Les took care of her mostly while Ames slept but she sat in my lap once I got up, I sat on the floor and held her once when she threw up saltines and sprite. Les gave her a freezer pop and when Gina came and got her it all came up. Kerry came home from Hospital and Jordon cut ear and had to have stitches...
But Les got his 40 hour sick time check, they didn't pay him the 8hr vacation day but that is OK, too.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

Today Charli told me she didn't want to be a Clemson Tiger any more she wanted to be a Carolina Girl. Her parents bought her a Clemson jacket when she has always said "Go Gamecops!" and even said that in a store Sports Authority, LOL! she said she wants to be like Meme! I told her she was my BFF no matter if she was a Carolina girl or not!
Dr Lal did not take Les' stitches out so he has another week before they come out. He can drive short distances though and I am glad of that. They are still draining a little, he woke up with gout in his hand though ;(

Friday, November 11, 2011

Not had the best week this week, no energy, thank goodness the ladies from church, our neighbor, Mema and Mom have brought food and that helped. We are frustrated because we filled out all insurance papers and Autozone messed that up so Les got paid $155 (24 hours) we owe CPW $300 so I guess Monday we will go talk to them. We don't know if we have to wait until two weeks or if they will mail us a paper check. They tried to blame his manager but she had the paper work where she sent it in. He had to go get the bandage changed because the adhesive was breaking him out. I only got out Thursday and went to Michael's, visited Gina and got the kids, it was too much! I was so tired when I got home.

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Les is still in pain but pushing on through since his surgery, Tuesday. We made it to church this morning meaning to go only to preaching but leaving the house after 9:30 like usual and not realizing it, LOL! It was hard on him. The ladies from church brought potato soup and cornbread which was good and today Mema brought us spaghetti.
Did pretty well yesterday and Friday at craft show selling 21 pairs of earrings and 1 book mark, Mema sold 3 sock monkeys and a vase. We are doing one at Mom's church Dec. 3 to benefit Eric Petrus.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Les did well with his surgery this morning, I am about to head back up there to see him.
Did they pages really quick with a great new kit by Cathy K called Every Day Moments, you can bet I will use this one several times!

Saturday, October 29, 2011

I talked to Jeremy Thursday night about 36 minutes! This time he and I talked the most instead of Les and him because we talked football, LOL! I guess I need to keep up more with the Panthers for him, ;). Got the flyers for the craft show I need to get padded out asap, I am going to have to do a few heating pads because that is want she put down on them...

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

An interesting day today, Charli was playing outside with Pop and Cora, fell, and had a severe nose bleed. I was laying down with Ames when he came and got me because blood was every where, so I got it stopped and after a while she calmed down to play with Cora again.
I posted some earrings on Facebook, I need to do well at the craft show next week since Les will be out for a few weeks.

Monday, October 24, 2011

Les and I got our new dog, Cora today (Sunday), she is a Scnoodle, and so sweet! Gina stopped by to meet her but Charli was cautious of her because she jumped up on her. I sent a picture to my Facebook account I took with my phone, will take pictures later and post.

Saturday, October 22, 2011

Charli is sick today, sore throat, fever. I had to call Sissy to go get her some Motrin and Claritin and she felt better after a nap but when Gina and Trey went to the movie with Sissy and Kerry she was feeling even worse. She is rarely sick, I pray she will quickly heal!
Les and I are getting a dog Sunday, I am so excited! She is a Schoodle ;) named Cora.

Tuesday, October 18, 2011

I have Really got to get more done with my crafts! I even got up early today and still didn't get anything done to count! I did figure out how to change stitches on sewing machine but that is about all!

Autumn Days by Cathy K

I couldn't sleep so got up and did 2 pages with the new kit Autumn Days by Cathy K Designs,I feel blessed to have spent time with my 3 Charms last week and am looking forward to seeing them in December! I wish I had room for them to stay here so I could see more of my other little one!

Charli brought me some cookies she had baked and was supposed to share with her Papa and she ended up eating them all except the one she gave my brother and me. She told me, "It's our secret, Meme" Then her Papa came home she went right in and told him, "I ate you cookie, Papa!" I laughed and said "Charli, that was our secret!" and she was so funny and giggled!

Made several earrings for November show so far, Looks like Kathie and I are going to be alone because Jamie and Jenny are not doing it. I need the money because Les will be out of work with his surgery and will be on disability pay which is 70% of his pay. The thing is needing to fill up my air every 4 hours :(.

Saturday, October 8, 2011

Here is a fun contest for a fun craft for kids! I would love to win one for Jordon, I know she would love it!! It uses the fun bandz to make other great jewelry crafts!

Friday, October 7, 2011

Took the kids to the park today. Charli was mad because another kid wanted to play with the bubbles and we gave him what was left in the small bottle, she really couldn't get over that! She came home and told Jeff about it, LOL! They were tired.

Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Went to Michael's today but had a very few minutes to look, I got some paint and beads. Got my eBay charms in the mail today and they are GREAT! Thought I was going to see Seth today but didn't :( I guess I will see him Friday.

Monday, October 3, 2011

Did a lot of scrapping for Ames book the past week end and now I had time to use Cathy K's part of Farmer's Market the UBuild It kit at SBE. I was wishing I had pictures of kids eating apples but thought they turned out OK anyway.

Happy Birthday to my sweet Kewpie Doll! He had a nice party

Friday, September 30, 2011

Went to Funeral home so we could finally see Seth, Julie doesn't have a good way to get around and they have been busy with the funeral so it has been hard to see him. He gave me a giant hug and kiss and wanted to come to my house and play with Charli. He is so cute, just like his Daddy.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Julie called yesterday saying her grandfather passed away and they would be coming to Greenwood! I can't wait to see Seth!

Here is Charli's Halloween costume

Friday, September 23, 2011

Wow, I can't believe I have not posted this week! It has finally started cooling down and we got a little rain. I made Ames invitation for his birthday next Sunday and have been working on earrings for craft show. Les went to see Eric about his stimulator and he is going to have to make up his mind about having surgery.
Noel is having a boy and Nicholas and Jennifer are going to adopt him, I have not talked to her since she moved to Kentucky. I sent her a message on Facebook but have not heard back.
The invitation is made with an old kit by Peppermint Creative called Party Pants. It is one of my favorite freebie kits ever! Have had it about 4 years now.
The kids are at Tybee Island where Gina is doing hair for a wedding tomorrow.

Thursday, September 15, 2011

I am sorry to say after the wonderful time I had in Charleston I wiped out the pictures! I looked at them so much I was thinking I put them on computer but I did not and formatted. I took a few pictures at Grandmama's when we went Monday so they are gone. Even took to Adam and he said they were totally deleted. I am so disappointed!
These are pictures of the Swinging Medallion concert and the kids with Grandmama

Thursday, September 8, 2011

Took a few things to church tonight to add to Jeremy's care package and it is running over! It is very cool, I need to get him some art supplies he asked for and he will be happy!
Ames is doing great walking around, he is very fast to get away from us, LOL! I hope we can go to the Tanger Outlet and get Charli a couple of leotards, she loves wearing them.

Sunday, September 4, 2011

Ames' eye looked much better today at church, I got tickled at him, when Gina took Charli back during church he grabbed Pop Driskel's coat and when Pop turned around he loved on him putting his little head on his arm, so Sweet! I am looking forward to tomorrow, I am meeting Nancy Cannon who has same disease I do. We are going out to supper, we have spent a good bit of time on phone. We are on same support group on Facebook.

I Just Won 6 Swag Bucks on

I Just Won 6 Swag Bucks on

Took Ames outside to show his Aunt Jamie he was walking and as he was standing there Charli walked up to him with her Papa's hat which Ames grabbed and Charli snatched back causing him to lose his balance and he hit the side walk! We all felt bad about it and Charli kept telling him she was sorry. He was tough, only cried a second until Jamie picked him up. He waited til Jamie left to really start walking, LOL!

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Very cool necklace!

Charli had a wonderful time at the Cateechee Festival yesterday! She said she wants dresses like they had! She wore her beads Sherry gave her to church today. I took a video of her and Les getting up and dancing the Friendship dance. She liked the Hoop Dance best, she said she wanted to learn to dance like that!

Saturday, August 27, 2011

I was just doing my Blog hopping, seeing who has posted something good and found a great tutorial here for a jewelry holder. I was thinking my Mom could sure use that!
I can'r remember if I said Ames was starting to take a few steps here and there but he is doing really well. He is especially good at getting up from sitting. We are going to get Charli and take her to see the Indians dance in 96 in just a little while.

Friday, August 26, 2011

School has been a great success this week! Charli has Miss Laura and Ames has Miss Doris. Both has a very good time, Mama and I picked them up yesterday and Charli was excited about that. She has really grown to love Mama Peggy so much because she plays with her and spoils her good!I don't know how I could do with out her and Jeff! Charli is crazy about Jeff, too, when he is gone she misses him and will sometimes go sit in his chair, he makes her laugh so much.
I think finally the medicine has started working, I have been able to cut back to using my pulse air tank some this week. Having trouble with my new tank so I guess I am going to have to send it back.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Went with Gina to take Ames to doctor and he only weighed 21.12! Charli weighs 30 lbs! He sure seems heavier than her! He is taking a few steps at a time and standing a lot.

Friday, August 19, 2011

I am not uploading picture right now but when with the kids to meet their new teachers. Gina is putting them in play school on Tues and Thursday mornings from 9 to 12. Charli cried when she had to leave and Ames fought over a toy, LOL! I will ad pix later. Need to go to bed because they will be here early in the morning!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Jacob was a cheater, Peter had a temper, David had an affair, Noah got drunk, Jonah ran from God, Paul was a murderer, Gideon was insecure, Miriam was a gossiper, Martha was a worrier, Thomas was a doubter, Sara was impatient, Elijah was moody, Moses stuttered, Zacchaeus was short, Abraham was old, and Lazarus was dead.....God is forgiving and merciful and even spoke thru a donkey.No more excuses... God can use you--God doesn't call the qualified, He qualifies the called!

Friday, August 12, 2011

Today Charli wrote on the TV, it must be a family thing because Jeremy did the same thing to his Mema's when he was 3! What made it worse was her Papa took care of that one then she went in my room and tried to put a sticker on mine. She cried like a Drama Queen when I turned off the TV and told her she was restricted from watching it the rest of the day. I did tell he I loved her and forgave her so I don't need to mention it again
It was so good to hear Jeremy's voice today! We talked for 20 minutes before getting cut off. He is living in a tent with about 20 guys and they only have a microwave so need foods they can microwave. He also is drawing and needs watercolor and black paper and spray fixative. I am sending Amazon $$$ for birthday but guess I will get goody box, too.

Sunday, August 7, 2011

Friday, August 5, 2011

Met Jamie at O'Charley's with Mama, Jeff, Cassie and Dylan and Gina's family. It was nice, kept telling Charli we were going to her place.

Thursday, August 4, 2011

It reached 101 yesterday, so hot it is too much for me to get out, I did go to church though. Les has been off letting his back heal but goes back today. He may end up going back to pain management. I got Charli's skirt done this week and Les sewed a cover for his E-book. Doug is taking antibiotics for an infection but should be ok, he was happy to see Charli.

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

I had a nice time meeting Elaine, Douglas and Abigail at IHop tonight. They were so glad to see Charli and she was a good girl and ate well.
I am not past 250 SwagBucks! I need to get a lot more if I want to send Jeremy an Amazon gift certificate! I am pretty good at thinking about the daily poll and like doing them. I finally found they send things to my inbox I can do to earn more.
I am very sleepy and ready for bed. Les went to dentist today and Gina went to Dr Vaughn and both did OK.
It is now 6 months since I started CellCept so I hope it will start working soon!
Oh I got Charli a skirt made today and got $25 for selling earrings.
I am about to fall asleep so good night!

Saturday, July 30, 2011

I have been thinking since Mickey's funeral and how nice it is that Debbie has that beautiful urn to keep and something for all the kids. I am thinking that it's a pretty good idea and found these beautiful artistic urns
I like that the ashes can be put in ART GLASS!
I think my favorite are the photo type. I just think it's a good idea because I want to check out donating my organs to be studied for my disease.

Monday, July 25, 2011

I got a new Oxygen machine today! It is lighter and gives my constant or pulse air. Much better!!!

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Today is my Dear Grandmother's 93rd birthday! We were blessed to see her and get a 5 Generation picture, It was hard to get one with both kids cooperating so this is the best.

Friday, July 22, 2011

I am glad I decided to catch up on some of my favorite Blogs because I found I great pattern for an apron made out of jeans at "A girl and a glue gun's"!
I have been trying to think of what to do for craft shows this fall and I think I will do some Recycle crafts and use jeans. As much as I hate to sew this is probably a pretty good thing to do! Since I can't get into my size 6's (But I am now below 140 lbs) that is a good starting place ;^D
I was happy that Janette came to see me today! She brought me some vegetables. This week we have gotten tomatoes from Debbie, David and 'Nette. Les is going to put some up in the freezer.
The picture is Ames being nosy while Charli is making crafts ;)

Monday, July 18, 2011

Gina and Trey came over and did some yard and house cleaning for us! She is the Best daughter! I have put several videos on my YouTube channel of the Mud Bog. will share later.
This is the bird house Gina gave me last year, a small bird has built a nest there.

Friday, July 15, 2011

Trey's Dad Mickey passed away tonight. He had cancer of the bladder that was very aggressive. How sad for Trey who was so close to him! Ames will never remember the man he was named after. I pray Debbie will be OK alone!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

I have the worse energy levels right now! I am so thankful for my Mom and for Les and Jeff who help me get through the day! It is so hot I can barely stand going outside but am trying to get my Christmas stuff mostly done because I am so concerned about not wanting to do it in up coming months! I really need to get up right now and go get some cold water because Les has went to bed with his back hurting and I need something to drink and to go to bathroom ;)
I am glad I have to take care of the kids or I might not do anything I am so tired!

Saturday, July 9, 2011

I scrapped today! It has been a long time but Cathy K has a new U Build It kit Summer Serenade and I couldn't resist working on photos from June!
I uploaded a video of Charli today
Took Charli to Festival of Discovery and was having a nice time eating ribs and listening to music when a storm came up! Had to wait until it let up a little under a vender's tent before we could make it to car. Parking was CRAZY! They had our regular spot blocked and were parking as far away as Dollar General and library! No handicap spaces open! Thank goodness after Les let us out he found a close one!

Sunday, July 3, 2011

I joined Swagbucks today, I earned about 60 points so far, a friend told me you can earn gift cards and gifts using it to search the web. I just hope I remember to use it instead of Google, LOL! There is a daily survey I need to check every day, too for points. I printed a couple of coupons and when I use them I will get more points. I also added my Blog so a couple times a month I will tell you what I got, if there are any super deals or anything.
Just a quick note to say we had a good time in Ninety Six watching the fireworks! We picked up Gina and the babies and went to Barbara Etters and sat with Tim and Leighanne, We got Gina home just before 11. She is very tired and Charli was a little ill. Trey stayed with his Dad, he had a better day today Gina said, we are waiting for a call just anytime. Gina picked Debbie up a top for the funeral, Mickey told Debbie he was dying, he is in so much pain. It is so hard on Trey!

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Charli came in the door saying 'We're doing crafts today!" YEP, she's My grand daughter! She found her some envelopes got stickers, stamps, inks and paper punches and created.
