It's Over....

Well, I made it. I want to thank you all for the prayers. They most definately worked. My husband did make it home from New York. Although, he was the only crazy nut driving back into New Jersey that day. LOL. But we were all together bracing ourseleves for the storm. We did lose power and our neighbors in the back lost a HUGE tree. But thankfully, they are ok. We did not lose any trees thank goodness. But the yard is a mess with branches and leaves. We have lots of flooding still on our major streets over here. But for the most part I think Vineland made out ok.  Oh, I also forgot to mention, now we need to get a new roof. With all this ran we had it made some leaks. We had to put buckets up in our attic to collect the water. Oh, and don't get me started on my basement. DISASTER.
But we survived. And all is well. I just wanted to hop on to let you all know. :)
I am also working on my swapaway prize and a surprise package for a friend. Which is long over due and I am such a bad friend.
But I will be back to post my progress.
I hope all of those who were caught in the hurricane are alright. And my prayers go out to those who lost a loved one.

Earthquakes, Hurricanes,and Giveaways...Oh,my!!!!

I just wanted to jump on here real quick before we lose any power.  If you haven't heard already the east coast was surprised by an earthquake. I was very surprised myself. We felt it and my house was shaking. A very scary thing to go through for the first time.
Second, I am now on hurricane watch. I have been getting prepared all morning. I have flashlights, batteries, water, and I filled both my bath tubs just in case they shut off the water. And I am praying my husband makes it home from work today. He is over in New York. So, if you can, keep me and my family in your prayers.
Well, onto the good part. I had signed up for Karen's giveaway over at her blog The Barely There Primitive Bear. And I WON!!!!! Yippee!!!!

Here is where I put everything
My Kitchen
And here is what I recieved...
A Wonderful Primitive Grater!

A Gorgeous Mason jar and Holder!

Thank you Karen!!!!! I just love everything.
And for all my readers on the east coast, stay safe!!!!
My prayers for all of you.

A little kitty followed me home today....

I have been on a creative slump as of lately. I don't know why. I try to start something and then I just can't bring myself to finish. Well, that all ended when a little kitty entered my life. I have named him Boris. I think he likes it, he hasn't complained. I found him outside my window one morning scaring my birds. I told him "Shoooo!!!". But to no avail. He would not leave. He calmly sauntered his way to my back door. Looked up at me with those beautiful green eyes and gave a quiet "Meow". My heart melted. I gave in and opened the door. He calmly made himself comfortable on my couch. He looked so cute I just had to sit next to him and stroke his back. He looked back at me and as if he was saying "It's time to create." I pondered the thought and said, "You're right, it's time." So, with my insecurities aside and self doubt put away, I went to work. I began projects and finished them. I made new items from brand new ideas I have had. I had strength and creative motivation again. And it was all because of Boris. The magical cat that entered my life at the right time. He came to me for a reason. And that reason was to find myself creatively again. I had been lost for so long in a cloud of depression and low self worth. I forgot the joys of creating and making prim art. I forgot what it was like to finish a project, step back and look and at what I had accomplished. But somehow, that cat brought that back to me. Somehow, he knew just how to get me going again.  "What a silly cat." I said to myself. And with that Boris sat in my lap and purred. Kneading my legs like dough, he made himself comfy. And I; well, got to work........

Until next time.

Hello to you all! Just checking in....

Hello everyone. I have not been on in a verrrrrry long time. I am so sorry for that. I have been feeling quite down and have had no creative energy. But I am giving myself a dead line to get back in the game. Tee Hee... I am planning on having my Swapaway in Sept. Which means, I better get a move on with the giveaway prize.  But I just wanted to let you all know I am still floatin around here. I hope to be back to myself in a week or so. Fingers crossed. :)

Have a Great Weekend Everybody!
