WHERE DOES THE TIME GO.... all in a week



Has it really been a week since I have blogged? 
This is so not my norm. 
Well, I have had a CRAZY busy past week. 

So much...
I tell myself daily DAY by DAY.
I don't know how I do it all right now.
I feel God's hand in supporting me and keeping me going.
My business is thriving. I have so many wonderful
opportunities and doors FLYING open for my
designs and opportunites to market, brand and
FOLLOW MY DESIGN DREAMS.

*photo- yes, went to read for AUDIO debut of something
BIG!!! FINALLY, next month I can share the exciting
DREAM come TRUE!!!!
 
I love to hear from my daughter McKay each week. Her sweet little personality keeps me uplifted. She has no idea the example and strength I get from her. She is so full of love for others and wants to serve others. I don't know how I was blessed with such wonderful children. I am humbled by this.

Seth is now back on his mission. He had been home for a year so it was so special that he decided to go again. This time he is in Tempe, Arizona. He is speaking Spanish like McKay.


I had been crying because I was going to miss him and we have grown so close. I know this past year we became very close and I know it was hard for him to leave with his dad sick.


I love that Zach is HAPPY and keeps our house full of LAUGHTER. This is important.
This is his friend Kenadee. I love her! She reminds me of McKay-
I always ask Zach when he will bring her over. Isn't she cute? 


I also got these BEAUTIFUL items and *many more UNREVEALED products that I have
coming out with Fiskars. I am so LUCKY!!!!!
I am using my GOLD trimmer and GOLD scissors.
I am redoing my office space and I can't wait for you to see it!
I seriously have been the BIGGEST
fan of Fiskars tools and never
thought I would be
working so closely with them
and doing my own products of tools with them.

Also, I signed this machine and SCRAPBOOKSTEALS.COM
gave it away!


 I  love this machine. I use my cut n' boss machine all the time.
I am very fortunate to be able to design with Craftwell.
Not a day goes by that I don't express prayers of gratitude
for the opportunities my designing has lead me. 


Fourth of JULY was a hard day for me.
I was emotional as I thought of those who are
so much braver then me. Those men and women who have and do serve our country. My dad was a veteran from the war. I just kept thinking of my friends and family who serve now.

My boys went to all the festivities with their friends and I stayed at home with my cute husband. He had been hospitalized last week with round 3 of chemo. He is very weak and spends a lot of time in bed now. He needs rest and sleep. His neuropathy in his feet are only getting worse. He struggles and NEVER complains.
I simply did not want to be without him. We heard the fireworks going off. I was right where I wanted to be... with my husband keeping him company.

I finally made it to the grocery store. Oh, yes... it's hard to fit this into my schedule. I asked the boys to write down anything they wanted from the grocery store.  I told them I would get anything on the list. I read the list and saw what my son Tyler had written.
I just cried... and cried more.
I know we all would love to be able to give this gift to someone we know and love.

CURE FOR CANCER
I pray for a cure
every single
day
countless
times
a
day...


 I am reminded to just BE GRATEFUL for each day... 


I made a quick trip to Goodwill. Yes,
I scored. The decorator in me sees the end results from the
beginning. I love that people stop me in the store and
ask me what I am doing. Yes, you could say...
paint... spray paint and I are good friends.
THIS is something that calms my soul. I love
to create, design and refurbish.

My son... thankful he let me do a photo shoot. I love my Canon camera. I love documenting life and moments.
I am not the best photographer but the photos come out perfect because of the great quality.
I can't believe I work with CANON. PINCH ME!

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS...
I hope if you are reading this- you too KNOW
that you can do the same.  

This is the photo McKay sent me this week. This just makes me so HAPPY!!!!!
I am so very blessed.

Teresa, thank you for this beautiful life update. You inspire others (like me) so much to just appreciate what you have and live life and be thankful. Thank you for this. My hubby and I have been in a rough patch the last few days but you help to remind me what is important: being there for each other. Thank you again and again for being such an inspiration in the lives of others!

Wow! Your son's Cure for Cancer has touched me this morning. I lost my Dad to Leukemia 18 years ago and my Mom now has breast cancer. I hate it!!

Prayers to you and your sweet husband!!!! xoxo
