My God Child

This is my Godchild, Harley.
This was taken last year, she was pouting about too many dollies, there was no way she was ever going to be able to take care of them...smiles..
She is just the sweetest little girl..and the daughter of a very dear and long time friend, who is so special in my heart. It was because of her..that I met Sammy's Dad.
I am always the serious one...but she brings out the laughter in me..and all those around her.

Christmas is about Love, Kindness, good cheer..but most importantly about the memories we make...each and every moment is precious, anyone who has lost a child or a loved one is going to be able to tell you that. You can't go back, and what you have are your precious memories.
This Christmas..make those precious memories for yourself and for others..stop and drink a nice cup of hot chocolate..every time you feel yourself worrying you don't have enough..can't do it..
The smiles..we give each other...the fun in putting up the tree...drinking hot chocolate..being good to ourselves..and to others..and like the poem says..children live by what the learn..what they see us the Christmas season..and how we spend those moments together as a is not about the presents..who got what..or how much something cost..but the joy of giving..from the heart...listening to we bake with someone Christmas cookies..making something special for someone who has less then us..taking that little bit of extra time to wish everyone you see a merry Christmas with a smile..on your face..
thanking those who work do for others..or have to work..long hours on their feet to make ends meet..
a time for peace on earth and good will towards all..

It is about making traditions....enjoying traditions..and each other..where ever we may be.
There is always someone in this world..that can use a little extra love, or kindness..Make beautiful memories..!
Merry Christmas ... Linda.. Merry Christmas .. to her Angel Ashley, who is not on earth with her...Merry Christmas...Mom and Dad...I miss much...!
I believe in Angels..and a elf told me...that if you listen very will hear them speak in your heart...and it is true.
Thank you to all of you who patiently wait for me to get things done..who forgive me when I forget..and for the sweet comments..I have not the time to answer to all of...them..but do appreciate and read them..and they do brighten my days..
I would also like to thank Jane from FolkArtTreasures..from whose site I have learned some of the skills,( Jane you are awesome..and still the best digital tole painter..around... I used skills learned from her tutorials in creating this kit..visit her out her membership...if you like her stuff..and want to do her tutorials..!
also special thanks to atomic cupcake for the use of her actions in making an element of this kit..

Sharing a tradition..!
When Sammy was little, he would get way over excited about Santa coming to visit..he would not be able to sleep or rest I started a little tradition..I gave him a huge bell...and told him a story about the Christmas elf..who visits each day in December..if you ring the bell once a day..the elf will come and leave a little present..because you have done a good thing on that day...The Elf had a bag of little a pkg of smarties..a dollar store toy...
He would ..very carefully chose when to ring his bell..then ask momma..if the Christmas elf would come..oh...I see the elf Sammy he is flying around over there...and he would look with amazement in his eyes to see the little Christmas elf..I wonder what the elf will leave me momma...the elf is here..Sammy have a look see if he left you you helped mommy bring the clothes to the room..and that was a nice thing...
of he would go looking and find a little treat...he say the elf many times...each Christmas..little children..with the joys of sugarplums dancing in their heads..and the magic of Christmas in their heart..Making memories that last a lifetime...
To all a Merry Christmas, Peace and Joyous..Noel.. Joanne

Moms Little Bird

Please forgive the wall in his room are not finished yet..plastering and painting..have to wait awhile..until we can afford it..but I so wanted to share his world with you

This is moms little the airport when we went to St. Johns.

I am sorry I have not been around but have been busy working on a few special projects..

Moo Two has a charity kit for a little girl named Chelsey. You can read about Chelsey by clicking on her name.

You can buy the kit at Moo Two at the link Below

Designers and non-designer alike came together to create this charity kit which is called Sweet Butterflies...and being sold at Moo Two Designs Here

My contribution did not make I will be uploading it here to share at a later date.

Sammy has been an angel..had a lovely birthday party..we made his cake together..and there is something to be said..about not having the money to go out and buy it all..because we actually had the best fun...making his cake together..for Sammy is about being the biggest cake that not just like a little boy...He wanted fireworks..and fire works he a little at a he could have a big show..

He only had two friends come..but that did not matter to him..He was the proudest...when the sky lite up and it was all for him..

You can see his you tube video of his cake and singing happy birthday

We finally have up his video of his dog talking..looks real he is a real winner...smiles..but he is such a funny dog..He thinks he is a toy poodle..and at husky size that can be quite and not so quite amusing at times..but he sure keeps this family

See Meikan talking here.

That is a big chunk of cheese he is of his favorite things..smiles..

He has chewed every pair of shoes I own..mitts..purses..and you just about name it and he has chewed it..

I made several years ago..a pair of beaded deer skin slippers for the winter..or if I had to go in hospital again..I put them away..and of of my challenges is remembering I did that..let alone where I put them..until I look behind my computer see what he is chewing..and there are one of my lovely slippers I never ever wore...chewed..up..all I have is a photo left of them..I was so proud of all the beading.. if that is not enough excitement..try a husky and poodle doing a mad march chasing each other around the house...remembering now ..he thinks he is the size of a poodle..

they make this mad dash on to the bed..back out to the front door..and 15 minutes sheets..have cuts all over them..from someones..toenails...I wonder who...

How are the cats surviving all this..well...lets just slowly not learning his lesson..Mr. Little, just enjoys taunting him...and getting him to chase him places..where he is just out of reach...from him..Pikachu..well...he is not going to play with Meikan..more likely he will eat him..that cat is not scared of anything and it is not unusual to hear the occasional yelp out of the dog that just won't learn!

Sammy has his little Christmas Tree up... in his room..a 3ft tree all decorated. Picture above.
I don't know how to get blogger to put pictures where I want them after my text..and have not been able to figure it out..oh well..this will have to do..

He loves Christmas..and is all smiles..and loves to help out with making things..and we are doing some food for the deer and cocoa pkg for gifts and a card for daddy...and some other things planned..

Judy guess what we got in the mail a few days ago..a beautiful post card...from Adelaide.He was so excited to put the first pin in his map..thank you so much for he says you live very far away..and that I am wrong about kangaroos..there are pigs..on the was just so cute of him..we had loads of smiles..thank you for making a happy moment for us..that was very kind of you...
