Valentine Tear Bears

Tear Bear peek a boo couple with flowers! How cute!
These are my LOVE peek a boo tear bears

My favorite, SWEETHEART tear bear!

I have been so busy making Valentine tear bears. I love Valentines day. My husband asked me to marry him 21 yrs ago this coming Valentine Day,2/14/2009. So it is a very special day to me to say the least. Go check out my bears on Ebay under id kms4life1989. They are so much prettier in person than any photo can take.
Just a few words about my bears...they are always made with extra thick, acid/lignin free mulberry paper. They are always penned and chalked and embellished in some way. I enjoy making these little bears.

Happy 40th Birthday My Darling Husband


Well, tomorrow is my darling husbands 40th birthday! I can not believe that he is turning 40. Time sure does have a way of sneaking up on us, doesn't it. I can remember the very 1st birthday I spent with him, when he turned 19 in 1988. I can even tell you what I got him...a jean jacket and plaid blue and black flannel shirt. I bought those things with my baby sitting money. I can't remember any more birthdays of what gifts that I got him. LOL.


I have a nice weekend planned for him. We will be dining at Red Lobster...not sure why..that's one of my favorites...he said it sounded good to him. So, we will be meeting his twin brother and wife for dinner. Then we will go back to a room I reserved for us at the Doubletree Suites. I paid for a suite through HOTWIRE. I got a $100 room with taxes for $52 and on a Friday night. How awesome if that.


Kenneth, you are an amazing man. I'm glad that I am growing older with you...I'll always be younger! I've watched you grow from an 18 yr old boy to my 40 yr old man. I couldn't ask for a better person to grow old with. You are the reason that I breathe. You are my heart and my soul. Happy 40th birthday baby. I LOVE YOU!!

A purple MONSTER or what?

I bet you never saw such a funny thing in all of your life. This is our little boy, Steven. His cousin Delanie got a stamp set for Christmas and Steven found the stamp pad in it. We had no idea he was even into her stuff, he was supposed to be napping. Imagine our surprise when he sneaked down the stairs and my sister was the first one to see him. My sister, Teresa, yelled for me to come and look at Stevie, she thought there was something seriously wrong with him. I came running into the living room and imagine my surprise when I saw the little purple monster!! I doubled over laughing, I couldn't even stand up to catch my breath. We had no clue at this point what was all over his face. I had to ask him if Mommy could have some. He finally took me up and showed me what he had. He had threw the little purple stamp pad under his bed, it's a wonder he didn't have it everywhere. His face and hands were enough. What to do with a little purple monster. LOL!
