Please help save my son's school from closing

I am writing to all of my readers out there with a very heavy heart. I learned this past Friday that the school my kids attend will be closing this coming June.  But the school and it's parents are fighting this decision.  The school has set up a website where you can make a donation.  We really need your help in this. I currently work at this school as so does my oldest sister. She teaches 5 grade math.  The school is more than a school to me and my children. It is one big family and right now we are being ripped apart.
 They welcomed my kids with open arms when we first moved back to the area from being in the military. My kids were going through some tough adjustments and changes. The teachers there helped them to readjust and fit right in with ease. I was so ever greatfull for their compassion. And when my grandmother died following the months we arrived there, the principle came out to the funeral to send her condolences personally. Now, I ask you. What school principle would do that? What teacher would take the time to help one student to fit into the classroom of 20 kids?
This school.  This is why I am going to fight tooth and nail for this school and for my kids. I shouldn't have to uproot them once again.  So, if you could make a donation for this school, not for me, not for the teachers and staff that work there. But for the CHILDREN.  They are the ones who will be affected the most by the decision  of the Diocese.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

Here is the link to donate.

God Bless,

Hello to all! And Hello to the New Year!

It has bee quite a loooooooong while since I last made a post. Been a busy bee around here. I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Christmas and New Year. I sure had a nice one. I am hoping things die down over here so I can have a giveaway. I wanted to do one for so very long. Maybe, fingers crossed, I can do one on my birthday which is right around the corner. Eeeek! I am going to be 30! Ugh, I can't believe how old I am getting. :( But with age comes wisdom, right? So, lets hope I get wiser on my birthday. :)

I hadn't been making anything in awhile, but for christmas I did get an order. A woman from the school my kids attend to asked me to make some of my snowmen for her. And also, I was her advent angel (or secret santa) which I participated in. I made her an angel. And here she is.......
Pretty cute?! I also just purchased my first wood pattern. I am going to try my hand at making a cupboard. I want to see if I like working with a new medium. I will let you know how it turns out. Hopefully, not crooked. LOL. But I want to thank you all for still hanging in there for me and reading my blog. Even though I have neglected it some, you're still here ((hugs)). And for those of you who have joined I welcome you with open arms and heart! God bless you all!

I am also in the works with a new blog. I was inspired to do a prims on a budget one after changing lifestyles and moving. I wanted to share some of my ideas and ways of getting the prims you want without spending a fortune. I will let you know when it's up and running.

But take care! And have a great week everyone!

Big Hugs!!!
