Happy New Year!!!






I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Holiday Season - and a very Happy New Year to everyone. I just had to show you my grandchildren with at least one of their favorite gifts (from Grandma and Papa that is)

The first is my precocious (did I spell that right?)Sabrina with Edward - Sabrina wanted a white rat for Christmas as we were more than happy to supply her with Edward - I personally absolutely love, love, love rats and mice and almost any rodent. It was so much fun picking him out. I bought him when he was first born - 2 1/2 weeks before Christmas - he was only a pink hairless little thing, but the girl at the pet shop assured me he would have hair by Christmas Eve - and he did. Isn't he just one of the cutest things you've ever seen?? Maybe that's why I love House Mouse so much. If you like the real thing and / or the House Mouse stamps, please go here to see the artist for House Mouse and her little friends she has helped - you won't be sorry, and your children will love it as well. Boy, I almost forgot to mention that Sabrina loves rats and mice also - it's not just me and that the apron she is wearing I made for her with pockets in the front especially for Edward to ride along with her.

Next is my sweet Jesse - he's into Star Wars, and actually this wasn't from us, this was from his Mom and Dad - Do you think he looks happy!!!

Next is my sweet and silly Ashlee and the boots she wanted - I think she looks happy also!!

And last, but definitely not least (in fact when I learn to pay attention to the order the photos load in - they will appear in the order I intend which will put) my beautiful Chelsea in first as she is the oldest. She, like so many other young people is in love with Twilight - I must read those books soon so I can keep up -and so I found this poster of Edward and Bella and put it in a frame for her - I think she's happy as well.

We had a wonderful albeit chaotic time, eating, cooking, playing games, watching Christmas movies, eating, eating, and eating - and I miss them all so much.

Hope to see you soon, I'm working on Valentines for the Shop and Christmas for magazine submissions - hopefully some or even just 1 of them will be selected. Take Care, hope all is well with all of you
