Alot of dust in the ATTIC........

I closed my shop down for a bit the last month of so due to all that had been happening in my personal life from the car accident and my grandmothers illness.


I have been getting busy with some last minute details on some new dolls. I went a bit "grungier" then I usually do on a few of them. The mood struck and it seemed to work:)
I am hoping they will bring smiles to your faces.

Also been working on some surprises! heehee
Look for the GRAND REOPENING!.....around JANUARY 9, 2006!!!!!!

2006 Calendar..... SherylsGraphics

I am a firm believer in writing things down on a calendar and having it all right there in front of me to help keep track of things. I did get a sweet kitty calendar from Eric's mom this Christmas.
I will be hanging it up next to my computer area. The box area is sort of small for writing EVERYTHING that I tend to write down though. LOL

I did a search for "printable primitive calendar" and found this awesome site!
I have actually been to her site quite a few times but had forgotten that she offered this calendar feature. I think everyone needs to scoot over to her website and print of the calendar.
Its so awesome and PRIM!
Lots of space to write important details down and if you chose the "landscape" version, there is a NOTES section on the side! LOVE IT!

Its my nieces fault! LOL

My oldest niece, Hannah, asked Santa to bring her a GameBoy and he did along with 2 games.
WELL! I have never played one before and had no clue they would turn out to be so much fun:)
She got a ScoobyDoo game that...well....I am horrid at! LOL The silly spiders kill me every time.
On the NEMO game she got though......much better. I can pick up pearls with no problem!LOL
I'd sneak upstairs and sit on the top step in the dark and play. heehee

A few days later, Eric drove some of my family back to Halifax so they could catch their flight back home to Virginia. While he was in Halifax............HE BOUGHT ME A GAMEBOY!!!!!!

Could he spoil me more???? I really highly doubt it! LOL
He also bought me The Hobbit game to go with it as he know what a huge fan of LoTR I am.

So now I'm going to be on the hunt for more games......oh I am going to have a might sore thumb!

Home for the Holidays

My whole family came home for this holidays this year and I have to say that over was AMAZING! We ate food like there was never a scale invented! LOL
The joy of hearing the EXCITEMENT in my nieces voices was something I will treasure always.
They got to hear Santa outside their bedroom window and sleigh bells. There were sleigh tracks in the snow in the back yard even!
To sit with everyone Christmas day and just feel the excitement in the air was a blast. Lots of wonderful presents were exchanged and many moments of laughter too! heehee

A good smack to the head........

Can really cause way more problems then you could ever imagine!
When dad was involved in the car accident and got the concussion......he was told he'd have a headache and be a bit "off" for awhile.
Well the headache just never went away and he was always really dizzy when he'd first stand up from the sofa etc. He was going to the Dr for a check up and we suggested he ask to have a CatScan done. The next day he was sent to yarmouth for the scan. Really quite quick but we sure were not complaining.

The very next day, the DR called us and told us to get in touch with dad(he was out shopping with my grandfather) and have him get himself to Halifax! The scan had shown a large blood mass and he was sceduled for emergency brain surgury!

We run around and get him up there.......after running some more tests and a bunch of other stuff, they finally did the procedure. He had a large incision cut in his scalp and then a hole was drilled thru his skull. A draining tube was placed and the blood mass was drained.
There was so much blood that it had pushed my fathers brain to the other side of his skull!
He had the drain tube for a few days and then was stitched up and brought back home.

His stitches were removed yesterday and he's doing much better. He goes to see the "head" DRs again in Halifax at the end of January. Another scan will be taken then.

So needless to say....its been crazy around here.

THANK YOU for all the prayers and well wishes that have been sent to myself and my family:)

Miss me????

WOW! What a crazy turn of events has been happening in my life.
I am sorry to have been gone for so long. This is a habit that I want to get out of!
Seems whenever something crazy happens in my writings stop.
That should be the time I am writing more and getting it all out.

Ready to play CATCH UP????
