Still Unpacking!

That's a good many goodies in those goody bags. I'm determined to finish the projects that I didn't get done. Hopefully this weekend.

Here's how the kitchen is coming along...

This is the booth that my uncle built for the breakfast nook. Can't wait to have friends over for coffee.
No oven or stovetop's at Aunt Jo's Maytag waiting for me to cook on but the tile is looking great!

Silver Bella 2009 Part 2

I'm wondering how many Sivler Bella parts I will end up having...
The great exchange!
These are two fabulous hats I made out of sweaters, and my little snowman that clips to the tree.

And, back to life at home:

Silver Bella 2009

Unbelievable. The work, the talent, all the right brains next to you...I loved it! Here are my favorite moments:

Meeting my big sister and laughing with her...what a dear she is. I so wish I could spend more time with her. I loved sitting next to her and watching her work. A treat indeed.

Meeting Malene, taking Charlette's sweater to hat class, meeting Joy and Sandi from Southern California, and making my snowman.

I loved visiting with Chantel about being a BM siesta!

Listening to Jo and meeting her. Meeting two beautiful sisters, Carol and Elizabeth.

Walking around vendor night with my friend Megan in my gorgeous apron that Debbie made.

I know I have others but I just wanted to list a few while they were fresh in my mind and heart. I can't wait to read everyone's blogs and looking at their work. I've never felt so much at home in a had to have been the good company that surrounded me.

Love ya bellas!

Woke up this morning after a sad day yesterday with this song playing on the radio. Hallelujahs by Chris Rice. I hadn't heard it before and found it on Itunes. It came out in 1997. Search it and listen if you haven't heard it before.

Makes me think about things...

Creation still goes on by the Almighty Creator and how can we not sing Hallelujahs for what He has created.

Thank goodness this life is just temporary and there is something better that is beyond this life. I wish I felt some of that during this time of waiting and searching...but I trust it will come. And I hang on to Hope.
