Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Well, what is everyone doing this weekend?
Candace and I have been scrapbooking in the craft shack. We had a lot of fun and an enjoyable afternoon! I finished several pages in my Christmas album. I still have 2 categories to do. We had done so many different things over the Christmas holidays!! I may post some of my favorite pages..
The picture of the trinket box I spoke of, doesn't show up real well, but you can get a general idea of what it looks like.
I've finally figured out how to use Royce's (give Candace the credit for showing me how!!) computer to post my pictures. So here goes....
Have a beautiful weekend!

Rain Rain, go away!!!

Well, hello everyone!!!

It is pouring rain here! The forecast doesn't show any let up until after the first of next week.
We've postponed the pig roast! :-(

I've added some new songs to my play list of music for your enjoyment. check it out and remember that you can always scroll down to the bottom and take a peak at what songs I've got on there...Also, you can choose whatever you want to listen to.

I'm going to "borrow" R's monitor after a while so I can post what I've done in the last couple of days. Let me know what you think!!!

Have a blessed day and stay dry!

Happy Wednesday (hump day)

Hello everyone!!!

I haven't been on here as often as usual!! Without my monitor I can't post pictures..But, I've taken some pictures of some items I made yesterday and I'm thrilled to death with them! I made myself a trinket box, (unfinished cigar box)! it is very vintage and antique looking. I've acquired some very old greeting cards dating back as far as the early 1900's. And further back than that! Anyway, I cut a few of them down and adhered them to the top of the box. I put a background paper on it first, then the cards and so forth. I finished the sides and the inside as well. It looks awesome!!! I can't wait to post the pictures. I also made a "friends"journal book. I simply covered it with pretty paper , put some ribbon on it and my initial. Very sharp!
Today's goal is to start and maybe finish two hat type boxes. I'll use them as decor pieces for our bedroom. I'll probably just set them on the floor or something....I'll take pictures of those when they're finished.

Please send up prayers fro my daughter, Sandra as she has lost her job. She's going to take some time and relax and get the cobwebs out and then decide what to do. She's been under a tremendous amount of stress, more than I could even handle. I have faith that she will find her niche and perhaps find something that she can do from home. This is what I'm praying for.

Well, have a blessed day and thanks for your prayers!!!

Happy Wednesday!!!

Can you believe that it is the middle of May!! Where has this month gone?
I won't have pictures to post for a few weeks. My monitor is shot and the budget won't buy one until the 27th. That's OK, I'm on Royce's computer!! Thank goodness for two computer's!!

The Dismuke's are having a pig roast at the oldest son's, Dwayne's house on the 23rd. We're really looking forward to it. They will start roasting the said piggy on Friday. All the son's will be helping. My daughter and her new hubby are coming down. I sure wish my two sons and families could attend..

Will keep you updated on what's going here at the Dismuke home....The flower's are certainly blooming and just beautiful. We sat out on the deck tonight and it was so pleasant and nice and unseasonably cool. The flowers were just beautiful!! We've been watering like crazy in order to keep them pretty. Our garden is also doing well. Honestly, it seems like everything grows over night. I do think the tomatoes are 3 times as big as when we planted them. We'll certainly have some huge tomatoes this year!

Ta Ta for now and be blessed!

Happy Thursday everyone!!

Can you believe it's Thursday all ready? Where did this week go to??

I haven't created much this week. I have been in the Shack! I've actually been setting my new Christmas album to do the Christmas picture's we took at Christmas. I've always done them in January, but since the show came up, I've devoted all my time to preparing for it. Now that it's over I can finally play!!! And I have been! I will take pictures as I get the pages totally done. I did accomplish finishing about 4 pages. So glad to be scrapping again!
Sandy H., our niece, has come over for 3 days and sat with me, offering suggestions and helping me. She's great company and I'm blessed to have her in my life. We have a lot in common and just do more socializing than anything!! She's such a gifted and talented gal, she absolutely amazes me every day! But, we do have fun! We can't wait 'til Candace is out of school and she come and play with us!
We're doing the Pine Tree Festival in Swainsboro this Saturday. I pray that we will do better. It's only for one day..Thank Goodness!
Send up prayers for a successful show and many ,many blessings to you all!
Singing off!
