Wreaths and Things


It's been a while since I have posted here. A lot has happened since last post.

Let me fill you in:

May, 2017 We adopted our daughter who is now 5! She has been such a joy to us. I have to say that she is spoiled rotten to the core.

I've had several major surgeries. I had an ovary removed that was causing so much pain for almost 4 years and doctors couldn't find out what was wrong. Ended up being a cyst that was hid behind the ovary they took out. Duh!!! I told them something was there!

Forward to to 2018:

I have Ebstein Anomaly and the pressures in my heart were way over what they were supposed to be. I had stress tests of which I almost didn't make it out of and was that a scary feeling. Many tests and many doctors appointments I was referred to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. I live in Ohio.

It was a long drive out there for appointments and meeting the world renown Dr. Dearani, he specializes in the heart birth defect that I have. He is the best in the world.

Back to Ohio.

2019: November, 27, 2019 I went into St. Mary's hospital in Rochester Minnesota and had open heart surgery to repair my heart. While in there he found a small hole and repaired that also. We were there approx>, 10 days from start to finish. It was the worst thing I've ever done in my life. I hurt for months after where the cut my sternum. It has been a wild ride! Thank goodness everything is fixed for now. Might be another 20-30 years before I need anymore surgery on my heart.

Today I am busy making wreaths, raising my daughter, going to church and thanking God everyday for HIS mercies and blessings.

My Creations

Hey Every one!
Thought I would check in on this first day of February, 2017.
Can you believe we are already starting our second month of the year?
Me either!

I wanted to pull some of my creations and show you what I'm capable of making.
I really do love making paper piecings and tear bears.

So, here goes:

Aren't they cute! These patterns come from Kadoodle Bug Designs and Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
Of course they are used with permission.

Now, I'd like to share some of my tear bears that I have made over the years.

I also do custom orders, I'm more than happy to work with you creating a tear bear that you will love.
Please check out my ETSY store. I'm trying to list on a weekly basis as I make items.

Winter Tear Bear!

Winter Tear Bear

Hey Guys and Gals!
Welcome to 2017!
A brand new year to start over and be creative.
I plan on bringing new bears out every couple of weeks and hopefully posting those cuties here for you to see.

I'd also like to add some other things that I am working on.
I've been very busy this past holiday season working on paper cone wreaths! They are just so much fun to do. Look for a tutorial coming soon:)

Today I am sharing my cute winter tear bear.
She's all purple with a white scarf around her neck.
As always my bears are made from extra thick, acid/lignin free mulberry paper and have been penned and chalked for added definition.
Here she is:

God Bless,

It's been a while to say the least.
Hopefully, fingers crossed, I am back for a while.

I hope you will come over and bid and help me rekindle my business. I miss everyone!!
