Flowers


Yes, I know it has been forever since I uploaded anything to this blog and I sincerely apologize. I put my blog on the back burner for a few months. Those of you who know me, know why. But, in a nutshell....
My hubby retired from the Air Force after 28 faithful years of military service... and
My younger son graduated from college AND married the sweetest girl... and
My oldest son and lovely wife gave us our first grandchild...the cutest baby boy EVER who has stolen my heart! and
We packed up and moved to Oklahoma and bought a log cabin, (a dream come true!) and
Our youngest child flew from the nest and is going to college hours away from her mama... and
We moved oldest son, wife and baby down to Oklahoma and they are living here until they figure out God's plan for their lives...
SO... I get to hold my little punkin every day instead of blog. And that works for me.
My lovely daughter in law, Megan is one of the craftiest people on the planet and so I am also getting to craft a bit. She has made some wonderful pumpkin decorations and lots of other fun stuff. She has an etsy store where she sells her beautiful jewelry and she also goes to local
(and not-so-local) craft shows and sells her jewelry. She is also starting a new etsy where she sells baby items such as pacifier clips, nursing covers and wet bags. She certainly stays busy with Gabe and all that crafting!!!
This Friday there is a craft fair on base and due to the fact that I need to be there with her as an ID holder, I have been making flowers and embellishments to sell as well. I found THIS very cool tutorial on You Tube and simply followed her instructions. My favorite part of making cards and things is layering flowers and embellishments, so that is what I decided to do. I've got LOTS of layered snowflakes and butterflies and flowers made and these so pretty roses!That will be all from me today, but I've been making cards here and there and even taking pictures when I remember so I will try to come back a few times a week. (Unless I get to holding the grand.) See you soon!
Love,
Angel

Hi My Dear Friend Angel! Wow it has been a long time, but you have been extremely busy with wonderful life happenings! You're a Grandma! How exciting! My sister became a Grandma in January and I just met my Great Nephew Brock a few weeks ago! He is adorable! You are so lucky to be able to get your grandbaby fix everyday! I have thought about you often and I miss being in touch with you. You will have to send me an email with your new address! Your flowers are adorable! I wish you and your daughter-in-law great success!
Hugs and blessings to you my dear friend.
Kelly

Hey, I am so glad you are back. I knew you were thinking of moving here to Ok but didn't realize you had. Mind if I ask where? I know of 3 air force bases--enid, tinker and lawton. I'm in Western OK in the Weatherford area. I do lots of craft shows too. There are a couple of biggies if your daughter in law would like the info.

Welcome to OK and better yet, welcome back to blogland.
