This little lady is the latest of the things I have been working on. She is a Toilet Tissue Holder. Actually she is the first I have ever made. I think she turned out pretty well. Now I just need to figure out a price for her so I can list her on my ecrater site.
Any ideas out there from anyone? What would you pay for something like this????
I was thinking of around $15 maybe, with $4.10 for shipping to US only. I have seen them as high as $20 but I don't want to go that high.
I am going to be starting on my vinyl gift bags here in a few days and get them listed. Everyone uses them for the holidays. Plus they can be used for Purses and even to put Bath Essentials, or baby things or CD's in to give as gifts. The possibilities are endless. I have even made bigger bags for school totes.
I am going to be trying my hand at making Checkbook Covers also, so be looking for them to be out in the next week or so. I'll be posting a few of them here also so you can see what they look like.
Well I need to head off to bed.
Nighty night, don't let the bed bugs bite.

1. God Loves You!
The Bible says, "God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life"
The problem is that . . .
2. All of us have done, said or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.
The Bible says “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” God is perfect and holy, and our sins separate us from God forever. The Bible says “The wages of sin is death.”
The good news is that, about 2,000 years ago,
3. God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins.
Jesus is the Son of God. He lived a sinless life and then died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins. “God demonstrates His own love for us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.”
Jesus rose from the dead and now He lives in heaven with God His Father. He offers us the gift of eternal life -- of living forever with Him in heaven if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Me."
God reaches out in love to you and wants you to be His child. "As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe on His name." You can choose to ask Jesus Christ to forgive your sins and come in to your life as your Lord and Savior.
4. If you want to accept Christ as Savior and turn from your sins, you can ask Him to be your Savior and Lord by praying a prayer like this:
"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."
I am going to try and remember this when I say "".
When I say good morning I mean to say:
O ffers us His
D evotion to
M ake us
O bedient &
R eady for a
N ew day with Him.
I nspire others please, and
N ever forget
G od loves you!
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!

They are the sunshine of their mothers lives. They watch over every step they take and their heart breaks whenever they see a tear come down that child's face. We would do whatever it took to keep her from harm. It hurts us more than it does her when she gets her first set of shots and we try to hold back our own tears. We walk the floor at night when she won't sleep and we can't figure out why. We'll rock her for hours just so she can sleep even though it is uncomfortable for us. We'll take that dandelion that she has so proudly brought to us and find the best vase we have and display it right there on the kitchen table where everyone can see it.
The bond mothers and daughters have is so strong nothing can come between. But that doesn't mean a mother will stop wanting to protect her daughter or wanting to guide her in her directions of her life. A mother always thinks she knows best. Mainly because she's already went through all those trials and tribulations and she wants to protect her daughter from going through the same ones to.
But that doesn't mean I don't realize that you are now grown and will need to make your own decisions. I will stay in the background and try my best to not be a meddling mom.
A mother still hates to see her grown daughter hurt and will do anything to try and not have it happen if she can. But for the most part all she can do is be there when she calls and let her cry on her shoulder and tell her that everything works it's self out in the end.
Now that you are a mother of your own I am proud to see how you've grown. You are doing the things you never thought you would and doing a great job at it.
I am proud of you.
But it doesn't matter how old you get you will always be my baby girl.
Happy 30th Birthday
You didn't think I would forget your birthday did you??
All my love,
This was sent to me by a very dear friend of mine & his wife, for whom I've know for over 32yrs. I just had to put it here.
God Bless you Mark & Yvette.

You don't always see them,
But you know they are always there.
'Whenever God Closes One Door He Always Opens Another, Even Though
Sometimes It's Hell in the Hallway'
I would rather have one rose and a kind word
from a friend while I'm here than a whole truckload when I'm gone.
Happiness keeps You Sweet,
Trials keep You Strong,
Sorrows keep You Human,
Life keeps You Humble,
Success keeps You Glowing,
But Only God keeps You Going

Well what do you think of my new cards for my store? Not too fancy but not too plain either. Just enough to get peoples attention. Doesn't say to much but says just what it needs to say. Just enough to get them to go to the site and check it out, don't you think? The colors are just enough to catch the eye and just enough to highlight all the important things. Well I just wanted to let you get the first glimpse before I printed any out.
May the Lord keep blessing you in all the things you ask of him.

I try to help those who need helping, whether it be opening a door for them when they have their hands full or taking back a shopping cart so they can get out of the rain. I'll let someone go ahead of me in the grocery line that might have a crying child so they can tend to their needs quicker. If I have an extra coat I try to find someone that can use it before it gets too cold. When we go out to eat we like to pay for a person's meal that is eating alone and leave the cashier a note with the words "God Loves You!" and have her give it to them when they go to pay. It is our way of trying to help others when we can.
Do you try to do all you can when it comes to helping others? It doesn't take money to help. Sometimes all it takes is a smile. You never know when it might be your smile that stands in the way between life and death of a person. That extra second it took for you to look their way and give them a glance with a smile that let them know someone was caring about them was what it took for them to change their mind about ending their life that day.
You never know if you don't try.

and everything will

How about these dishcloths and scrubbies? The ones on the top are patriotic in color. The dishcloth is 8inches square and the scrubbie is about 9inches across. These can be put in the wash but I wouldn't dry the scrubbie for obvious reasons in the dryer. But dry the dishcloth on low. These will last for years to come since you can keep rewashing them. They are made from 100% cotton yarn.
Shipping: $1.50 a set in the US only right now.
These here are such smart colors. Ready for Halloween but not that drearry color. The scrubbie is about 9inches across and the dishcloth is 7inches square. This one has ridges on it for that extra rubbing needed for those stuck on dishes. Same as the ones above, can be put in the wash but I wouldn't dry the scrubbie for obvious reasons in the dryer. But dry the dishcloth on low. These will last for years to come since you can keep rewashing them. They are made from 100% cotton yarn.

I have been busy working on some bathroom cleaning accesories for you. Some small facial scrubbies/washclothes and a nice soft scrubbie for the bath. I will have to get some pictures of them so I can get them on here.
I did up some of the bath scrubbies last year at Christmas time and gave them away in my gift bags I made and they were a big hit. I should make some of my gift bags too and put them up for sale on here. Someone might like a few of them too. I am a bit late on them for Halloween this year though. I made them last year and sold them for trick-or-treating and the kids loved them.
Well I really need to get supper on the table. So I will say aveedasay to you until next time and may the Lord bless you in all you do.
Romans 5:2 KJV
I was sent this by my Aunt Nettie the other day and I thought it would go good with how I felt today.
I woke up this morning feeling an overwhelming amount of faith in our Lord. I had been feeling like most of us have been because of the economy. Little or no money and hard times falling on us. But this morning was different. I felt like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. Maybe it was because I prayed and asked for the Lord to help me with the worries I had for making all the bills this month. Or just the thought that I knew he would help like he always has in the past. I don't know but this morning I felt like I was on a cloud.
But it just shows that faith plays a major role in your life and you have to have it in order to get by day by day.
I pray that you have faith in your life.
I pray that you take the time to pray to God and ask him to help you in your life and see what miracles take place next.
Don't do like most people do and look for BIG miracles, notice the little ones. Like the closer parking space to the door at the store, or the last Shirt marked down on clearance rack just your size. Those are miracles God makes just for you. He puts you right at the right place at the right time.
I was given this a number of years ago by a friend and I have now copied it to my computer so I can send it on when needed.
I thought it would bring meaning to today's feelings. If someone hasn't asked for the Lord to be in their heart, here is a simple prayer to say for just that.
Feel free to pass this on to someone if you feel so inclined. Being in the Lord's family is important to me so I am willing to share this joy with all.

Here is a hat and scarf set I made in blue and white. The scarf is over 6ft. long so you can design it anyway you want around your neck. Or even use it as a belt. The hat can fit a teenager or an adult easily. Is made out of soft yarn and looks great on.
Price: $12.00 for the set.
Shipping: $3.25 in the US only for right now.
The scrubbie is 8-9in. across and the dishcloth is 7in. square. Both are good size for washing and scrubbing those dishes. Dishcloth has ridges for extra scrubbing power, as you can see by the picture.

Have a blessed day,
it is such a nice and sunny day here today. I was woke up by a phone call from my 6yr. old grandson this morning. Although I missed the call he left me a message. Just wanted to say hi because it was the weekend and he could use his dads cell phone. That's my guy.
So I hope everyones weekend is off to a great start. Get those last minute fun day things in. Won't be long before the kids will be stuck in side for the winter. They don't get out anymore like we use to. They stay stuck inside either watching TV or playing video games for hours on end. What a cheap babysitter the parents have now days.
So I have a few more things for you to feast your eyes on today.
These are called Chocolate Towels. I really like these. I have 2 more sets yet to finish. These would really add color to any kitchen.
Price: $5.00 a set
Shipping: $1.50 each set.
As always remember I have paypal (www.paypal.com)for everything that I have here for sale.
I have a few lap blankets in the works that I need to get finished so I can get them on over to the nursing home before the weather gets any cooler. It seems like there just isn't enough time in the day to do all that I need to do.
I'm sure some of you feel like that too sometimes.
