Yes, I am still here!!

Hello Friends...
YES, I am still here!
 Before I get started, I want to extend my thoughts and prayers to all of those who have lost so much or have in any way been affected by Sandy......there just aren't words to express how we all feel about this life altering and devastating ordeal that you have all been faced with.
I know that it has been a while since my last post, and I do apologize for that. The past couple of months have been a bit of a roller coaster ride for us as well...many ups and downs, though nothing in comparison to those on the East coast, again, my thoughts and prayers are with you!!
:)  :(  :)  :(  :)
Worst of all, we lost our poor old boy Riley last month. After many months of doing everything we could to keep him going, we sadly had to say our last good-byes...he was the BEST dog and we miss him so very much!! The house feels so empty now and his "little brother" Cooper, our Chow Chow is absolutely lost without him. It is still so sad to see him wandering around the house looking for Riley. :(
The BEST news is that we found is is...drum roll please...
YUP, by this time next year, I am going to have a SPOILED ROTTEN little baby to love and smooch on and buy all kinds of cute little clothes for and...and...and...I think you get the picture!!!
Do you see what I mean??? A total roller coaster ride!!!
Last night I had my first Christmas Up-date on my PT and I want to thank everyone who stopped by for a peek at my offerings!! I am so sorry that so many of you missed out...things sold so quickly that I had a really hard time keeping up with the emails, but I am planning on doing another up-date next week Monday, on the 12th for those of you who are interested. I had several items that I didn't get finished, so there will be some new fun things on this up-date as well.
I also got a lot of emails requesting that I offer some of the samplers from the up-date in pattern form...well... I already have most of them in my program, so I will try to have them listed as soon as possible. Many thanks to all of those who inquired about it!!
Well, not much else to talk about this morning. I have a busy day of boxing up orders and I also have to run a few errands, so I will let you go with a picture of two fun items that I recently purchased...
A wonderful green bail handled pantry and a darling little treen bowl.
If any of you are going to the shows in ARTHUR IL this coming weekend, maybe I will see you there!!! Sounds like the shows are all going to be FABULOUS so have fun and good luck hunting...and please be safe during your travels!!!
Before I go, I want to once again extend my thoughts and prayers to all of those who have lost so much or have in any way been affected by Sandy.
Until next time...Tina
