Feels so GREAT to be back....

Hello Hello Everyone!!! I am THRILLED to say I finally have my blog all fixed....my account all switched over to my email pennyduncan@att.net and ALL of my videos re-uploaded back to my new Youtube channel......as well as my gallery of all my previous ART creations AND my ETSY store re-opened!!!  Talk about ALOT of work....LOL  But it is SO worth it I think.....feels AWESOME to have it all done!!!

SO...I thought I would try to work up a blog post just to start trying to get active again....Thought I would start off showing you some of the things I DID do over the Christmas holiday.....I love making homemade gifts for people and I'm fortunate enough that my family loves receiving them......among the other gifts we got our kids I wanted to make a special something for both of my boys and the women they love so much.......my DIL had showed me a frame she really liked at a flea market last summer and I knew I could make one myself and personalize it for them....so I filed it in the back of my mind until the time to create....and here's what I came up with......


I personalized it with pictures from the time they were married through this past December and Stephanie absolutely LOVED it....so it made me so happy......she hung it up as soon as she got home!!

This next piece I made was for my youngest son and his FIANCE!!! Yep....my baby is officially engaged and our family is beyond thrilled as she is definately our choice for him...and it's clear it's the Lord's plan as well!!!  Their love story is so very sweet......as it goes all the way back to the 7th grade.....I was blessed to go with him to pick out her engagement ring and I was beyond thrilled my baby wanted his mama's help......made me cry.....and between Dylan, Kendel's mom and myself we came up with the perfect way for him to propose and it totally blew her away.....was simple but very sweet and memorable for them.....

I knew I wanted to incorporate there love story in some way for the piece I created for them and I wanted it to be something they could be reminded of and enjoy often....wanna see what I came up with?????

They both were so over the moon thrilled with the blanket and her mama told her they need to hang it up at their reception when they get married....made this mama so proud and thrilled!!!

So.....then.....I had been asked by my DIL Stephanie to make a Christmas dress for my Tator Tot......and I so touched and eager to give it a go......check out how it turned out.....


Isn't it precious....the back of it has ribbon that criss crosses to close....it turned out so beautiful I think and I made her a bow to match......check out how my sweet sweet Tator looked in it......BTW...she was SO proud of it!!! LOL


Now...the next thing I wanted to show you was my first embroidery project I did for my youngest son.....I'm super dooper proud of this as I created the entire file and then embroidered it on the hoodie he got.....he is beyond thrilled and SO pumped to have it.....


You may remember at the beginning of this LLLLLOOONNNGGGG post....that I had re-opened My ETSY store....and I knew I wanted to start creating embroidery files to list there......I've created a few so far.....love how they look...and have got 2 listed right now....still have more to list...just takes a while to get it all together to list....but I thought I would show you the first 2 files I have listed....they are so pretty if I must say so myself.... ;)  So...check them out.....sure hope you like them....



WHEW!!!! Did you make it...LOL  Did you stick with me???....LOL I sure hope so....it feels great to be posting again....and hoping to make it a regular habit.....hoping the meds they have me on for my thryoid which was not functioning will help to keep me motivated....I can say I am able to tell a difference in myself since the meds have finally started working.....so...I'm ready to go!!!

As always always always...THANK YOU so much for stopping by to visit with me....Sure hope you enjoyed your visit and I do hope you will come by and visit with me again!! I would like to with you all a very blessed week!!! Until next time....
