Well I have a daughter getting married in a week..My youngest daughter Jordynn Renee' will be "Mrs. Dalton Fry" in less than 7 days. Their engagement has lasted a year and a half so we had plenty of time to prepare. They will have a ceremony at a church in a nearby city that we had to rent because their church wasn't big enough to hold everyone they have invited. We will have their reception in a local KC Hall decorated by a friend of mine who is also another manager at Nickorbobs Home Decor where I now work. She has prepared centerpieces with pink and white peonies floating in water sitting on a lighted base with beaded garlands wrapped around them. The water with the lights will just shimmer around those beaded garlands...its looks very pretty....We've also taken 4x8 sheets of lattice and are attaching lights, along with a big pink lighted heart with their initials in a shimmery pink flourescent the center...then there will be shear curtains hanging in front of all the it off with lights under the gift and cake tables to add that much needed ambiance....It's going to be lovely and I really can't wait till it gets here for her to see it all...It's taken lots of hours to prepare, and I don't think I will ever be able to thank Jak enough for all her hard work...It sure is appreciated....!!! Now, I can't wait also till June 24th, because I can then get back to doing what I love doing ..designing and making raggedy annies...So soon, I will have new dollies here and on etsy.... Hope you all have a wonderful summer, it is sure hot and humid here...summer has arrived... toodles...!!!

I have a NEW JOB!! Woot woot!

After several years (since 2000) of crafting and raising my 3 great kids I've decided to go back to work! It' a part time 3-4 days a week job but it has already been very rewarding! I've taken a job as a manager of our former craft mall... Now called Nickorbob's Home Decor mall where I have 2 booths! I'm feeling pretty good about this job ... The people there have always been friendly and the owners are very supportive... So it's feeling like it's the right thing to do now! I kinda miss the freedom I had before a little but it also feels good knowing I have a job and can help the hubs out more now !! Don't have as much time to make my lil Annies but when I do get one done ... It feels good !!!

Well spring is right around the corner, and we have our spring festival this weekend so it's busy busy right now!! If you are in the area of central IL this weekend... Plz look us up... Not only is there our mall with 89 shops in it to browse through, there is another mall with crafts by us and 2 antique malls... All very close together for you to enjoy! Come see us !!! And ask for me...I'd love to meet you!! We have 10% off everything in our mall this weekend!! Lots and lots of home decor to see!!

Well have a fun week... Enjoy!!!
