Wow...I am late! Warning this may be very long.

Hello all! I just want to say Happy New Year to you! Boy, my holiday was sure busy. I hope yours was too. I have to update you all on so many things. Where to begin? Well, for starters, my husband and I purchased P90x for Christmas. We both want to lose some weight badly and thought this was probably the best way to go. Let me tell is no easy workout. I am still sore! And I am only on day 5. Not only are the exercises challenging but there is a meal plan too. I am all for fish and veg and lean meats. My kids and husband, not so much. So meal time is a little tricky.
 Also, we celebrated my middle son's birthday on the first. He turned 6! Where has my baby gone?! They are growing up way too fast! And soon after I slowly took down all my Christmas things. It is so depressing. I really miss not having the Christmas decorations up. I am still working on taking the outside stuff down. I have to put the lights away and it is such a chore. Who wants to do it for me? LOL.  After putting things away I started tweaking my other things around. Plus, I have to make room for something I am going to pick it up on Saturday. I don't want to say what it is yet. I don't want to jinx it. I'll post pictures of it when I get it. But I am sooooooooooooo happy to finally have one!!!!!! It's my birthday gift. Well, my pre-birthday gift. My birthday isn't until the 27th, but who's counting?

Primitive and Folk Artists
Plus, I am super excited to announce this awesome Etsy Team I have joined Primitive and  Folk Artists (PAFA). It has a group of very talented ladies and you are invited to join too!!! It is a great team with lots of ideas and promotions to get your shop and items noticed.  So, tell your friends. Have your friends tell friends. The more people the more exposure your shop and items will get. Just click the name and it will take you directly there. I hope you do join!

And in closing( this post is getting long, I am afraid I lost a few of you) I just want to ask for your prayers for me and my family. As you might know, my husband is getting out of the military(Yay!) And currently he is trying to find a job for when our time here is done. So far, it is not looking very good and the stress of this has gotten to him. I just ask for your prayers that God will grant him with a job and security for when we depart from here. Also, I ask that you say a little prayer for me too. I too have been going through some personal struggles and would love your spiritual support. Thank you all for reading! You are all so wonderful!

Hi Gen - We missed you! Wanted you to know that I will be praying for you and your hubby and hoping things will get better for you both. Good luck on the weight loss - it's such a struggle at our age!

I hope for you that things level out. I know the job issue can be so stressful. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Surround yourself with positive. You have done an amazing job with your primitive wares and I have every reason to believe that this will soon be a distant memory for you. You seem to be a very positive and motivated person which leads me to also believe that you must be strong. Borrow my motto and tell yourself "This to shall pass".
Good Luck and please keep us all posted!
Ps...I hope your surprise is what I think it is! _ _ _ safe?

I see the dish towel that I made looks great there.
I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers as you start a new chapter in your lives. Hoping that your husband will have a job offer soon.

Ah Gen, I totally understand! I just love the feeling of calling on prayer warrior friends to stand in the gap with me when there is something heavy on my heart. I am honored to be doing this for you. I know God will lay you and your family on my heart often and I will pray for you right then and there. I am so thankful that He allows us to come before Him with thanksgiving and requests and He is so faithful to fill our hearts with peace! Continue to lean on Him and He will show you the path to follow. Much love to you all~

Hey Lady!!!!

Tell your son Happy Birthday!!!

Saying a prayer for all of you. remember whenever a door closes another one opens. After my ex left me I also had to find full time work that would pay the bills. I just trusted in God took it one day at a time. As the time grew near where I had to move my friends were looking out for me and had the company they worked for call me to offer me a job. Not exactly what I want, but it's a job. As for you, i hope things calm for you and get better,
