Handmade Rag Doll made by Moi

2015-07-10T18:27:23.991-07:00

  Oooooh La La... I don't know why, but I think this sweet, little darling looks like a Frenchie! Maybe it's all the layers of vintage doilies I've wrapped her in...     or maybe it's the pompom on top of her head that could be a beret, or maybe it's the Marie Antoinette ribbon tied around her neck, but I have to say... I ADORE her!     I adored her so much, that I had to make



6 Weeks in Europe with a 22" Carry-On

2015-07-02T15:14:38.334-07:00

  Greetings Friends!!! With only 12 days to go until my BIG Adventure, I'm starting to KIND OF stress out about trying to fit 6 weeks worth of clothing & other necessities into a 22" carry on and a shoulder bag! I have done LOTS of research on this, as that's just how I roll, but looking at pictures & reading others suggestion's is far different then doing the REAL thing... THUS I

Huntington's Disease & Learning to Live

2015-06-05T15:33:33.854-07:00

{my family at Disneyland in 1958}   This is a very personal post. It's a post for me, a post for others who  may have experienced this strange phenomenon, a post for those in the Huntington's Disease community, a post to expose my weakness, my desire to heal & my prayer to find peace.   You see, I've spent most of my adult life preparing to die young.   A statement like this requires



To Shower or Not To Shower

2015-07-02T15:23:11.741-07:00

    To shower or not to shower, that is the question! I know, what a stupid & silly question that is...of course the only sane answer is to shower. Or is it!     Now maybe my aversion to showering can be blamed on being born in the 'PSYCO' generation. Having seen that movie 100's of times, it does prove a frightening fact... that you are quite vulnerable while alone in the  shower



Timing is Everything

  "Timing Is Everything" by Garrett Hedlund When the stars line up And you catch a break People think you're lucky But you know its grace It can happen so fast Or a little bit late Timing is everything You know I've had close calls When it could've been me I was young when I learned just how fragile life can be I lost friends of mine I guess it wasn't my time Timing



My Journey into Blogland

2015-04-01T12:37:26.173-07:00

  That's it right there...that was the moment that I had an epiphany, sitting in the Barnes & Noble in Baltimore on a vacation to visit my brother. I picked up my very 1st copy of 'Artful Blogging' & I was hooked! It was May of 2009 & I read this addition from cover to cover while sitting & drinking my Mocha Frappuccino & all I could think of was...this speaks to my inner soul. This is

Love it!!!    What's some of your favorite ways to present a gift?
