Change over to Bloglovin

I’m changing over to Bloglovin as Google is changing so many things. I actually thought blogger and Bloglovin was the same thing for a short time๐Ÿ˜‚ my brain is more a sive lately. Sorry I have been so quiet hear... but have been quite everywhere lately. 

Helping my mama and teenage girl is taking time, not that I do that much. We all work at helping each other. I feel so bad for mama as I can’t do anything for her pain. And having raised 3 boys, having my niece now is fun, and educational. Girls are so SO different than raising boys. lol But I love her as my own and wouldn’t change having her for anything!

Well life keeps going... and I must get going too. Love to all! 
Thanks for reading and sharing with me.

My FIRST time to fly๐Ÿคฏ

My hubby talked me into going to ST Thomas USVI... I cant believe I said yes...So I know we will be busy and enjoying some sun and fun. Not to mention 3 little boys I haven’t seen in a couple of years. So excited! I watched mama grow up into a fine young woman and wonderful mama. Hard to believe she has 3 boys like I did. LoL I’ve never been on a plane or out of the United States.
Funny but first thing I could think of packing was some craft supplies to keep my hands and mind busy. This will be so different. I’m not a big people person because of having multiple chemical sensitivity. Shoot laundry detergent, shampoo and deodorant are horrible triggers not to mention perfume and cologne ๐Ÿ˜ฐCan’t take oxygen tank on plane, in case I need it. And insurance turned down using a pulse concentrator. Because they say I need steady flow. So going without. Have new mask and hubby says they have air vents that can blow in my face, so I’m going to try and be positive. This is going to be great!
A couple of reactions are either bawling and feeling like I’ve been beat with a bat from head to toe. Or I can get rather violent and down right mean. So Rescue Remedy, ✔️ meds, ✔️ masks with new filters✔️✔️✔️ I got 3 of them ๐Ÿ˜‰
This is going to be in part our second honeymoon. We got married on a Saturday afternoon 37 years ago in May. Early Sunday morning he woke up sicker than a dog (streptococcus) and Monday morning I had it... so we spent our first 2 weeks together ๐Ÿค’. Our boys are grown and have families of there own, so we thought this would be something we could do for ourselves.
This is going to be a great adventure!!! Will post pictures when I can. We leave in a week from today. I can hardly wait...
Until I post again...XO Nana

Working on some winter comfort

I have been working on some lovely crocheted Cowls. I found them on You Tube. If you like them go to the links and I will send you strait to where I learned how to make them. Don't forget to leave some love for the ladies that share so much with us too.
First up Sassy Autumn Ribbed Crochet Cowl.
 Here she shows you how to make the front post and back post double crochet YouTube

 This one I forgot to get a picture of before I gave it away. If I can I will get a picture later. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Siem's Five in a Row Chunky Cowl Shawl 

Then I made the Modified Margaret Button Cowl
Only I omitted the fringe.

Now I am working on another Sassy Autum Ribbed Cowl in neutral colors. I will update this post with pictures tomorrow in the morning as it is almost 1 am and I need some sleep.

Tiddly Inks2:3 Challenge

 Tiddly Inks has a New Look and a new challenge, Come check it out here.
They have some really cute digi stamps and stamp stamps ;-) Come and join the fun even using their freebie if you haven't bought anything from them yet. I know you will soon enough start a file of your own with their lovely girls and other stamps.

I'm fighting the SAD again... welcome fall and winter. So am trying to stay a bit more positive and I thought this saying was perfect for this image, She just makes you smile! I printed her out a number of times and used foam tape to make her 3D. Bottom pictures show from the sides her layers.  Hope you enjoy her as much as I did making this card.
