The Memory Tree

Here's my memory tree. :-)

Memory Tree Ornaments - Production!

A little germ of an idea gone wild! I created "memory trees" by using photos of my kids and making them into embellished ornaments and decorating small trees at our front door one Christmas. Because my children are so beautiful, I could never take them down. So I left them up.

When we opened the store, I brought the trees and put them in the window. I've had literally hundreds of people stop and ask about them this summer, many of whom wanted to buy them or a kit to recreate them with their own photos. Thus.....

I Had a Dream

I had a dream last night. I dreamed I went to my friend's house. One of my best friends in high school, Gloria. In my dream we cried and hugged and then began to just catch up. Several times in the midst of our conversation, I'd start to cry again because I was so happy to see her.

Its been years, more than 20, since I've seen Gloria. I live in Colorado and Gloria still lives in Texas. We've reconnected recently on Facebook and I'm so thankful. I love this girl very, very much. I'm working on a plan to get home soon and I will definitely get my hug.

A class this Saturday

I'm doing sort of an impromtu class, sort of. Because it was and then it wasn't and now it is.

So its this Saturday, September 19 from 9-noon. We'll do three each of three designs and I'm not sure exactly what they'll be. I'm playing with a lot of things. Maybe one for Christmas, I'm not sure.

Call the store & sign up, its not on the web. Hope to see you then!
