What kind of music I am!

Well.... this did NOT surprise me!

You Are Country Music

You are friendly, down to earth, and fairly conservative.

You are true to your friends and your upbringing. Change is hard for you.

But beneath your old fashioned attitude, you are expressive and artistic in your own way.

Very few people can express pain and pleasure as eloquently as you can.

Boots while you are splitting wood! And this is after two hours with an ice pack!
I had on sandles.... the wood fell faster than I could move my foot!

Kraftin Kimmie's Challenge

well... I have only done one other sketch challenge... this isn't exactly a sketch challenge so I guess you could say this is the first "challenge" I have done! but when I seen this I knew I just had to do it!
It is from Kraftin Kimmie's Korner
we were to take her book and use it for inspiration! I did... made mine almost exactly like hers! but I really like how the cover came out (I still have to finish the inside of the book)
Sorry about the lighting!

Accordian File box

I found this on someone's blog who is going to be selling it in a "class"... I so wanted to make one... but was thinking about the cost.
Then in my blog reader... I was sooooo excited.... Dannie had posted a link to the instructions!!!! (check out her blog!!!) It ended up not costing me a thing except the supplies of course!!!!!
I want to publicly thank her for posting the link! I know Yahwey used her to give me one of the little desires of my heart!!!! and she blessed me without even knowing it!!!
Here is a link to the site... you have to have a free membership but they have some cool projects!
It is the july 4th episode called "expanding Memories"

Well... I have been struggling with Kathy's passing (see last post) and today I got some crushing, devastating news about the health of my oldest (2 1/2 yrs) grandson... I don't want to really go into it right now except to say that the doctors believe he will be completely deaf but years end and could be going blind on top of it (he has been having some issues seeing somethings, which we thought was just depth perception issues)। At least now, after 2 1/2 years testing, they have a diagnosis... good on one hand, because they know what they are dealing with, but very devastating on the other... because of what it is and there is NO treatment... NO cure.
IF you want to read about it here is a link....

I forced myself to be creative today to try to pull myself away from just feeling overwhelmed with life... I made 4 cards and a card box... not sure who I am going to give it to or if I will try to sell it (would be my first for cards) anyway, Here they are and TFL.
Box is in center back.

and the box.

RIP Kathy... I love you

Life is so short.... Even when you know it is almost time to say good bye to someone you are never really prepared.
Good bye my sister :(
You no longer have to imagine, you see Our Messiah face to face.
