the new year and what I know for sure

To  all my lovelies may the New Year be filled with every good thing. May God bless you and continue to guide you through all life's challenges and victories.
The year 2015 has been a year that has been filled with peaks and lows, I didn't post much here on the blog as I lost my Dad. Needless to say with my divorce not concluded and his passing I was absent from the blog most of year as my perspective was one of grief and coping with loss. Can anyone out there relate?
I am still not sure how to face the new year, if you know what I mean, it's like I can't face another disappointing thing and I'm frightened somewhat. So regardless of whether I am ready, life goes on and it doesn't miss a beat.
This year I saw both my children, come thru the toughest time in their lives, to come out on the other end, whole, grounded and secure. Nothing can prepare a child for a parent leaving the home, it doesn't matter from what angle you look at it. I have had to put myself on…

A very happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year to all my lovelies and to all peace and joy.

tis the season to craft

Hello my Lovelies, It has been a long time for me not posting to my blog, it seems like there are not enough hours in a day. Being a single mom has it's rewards and it's challenges. But here I am and hopefully I will be here  more for the Holidays.

Recently I was looking for a cute craft idea for my daughter and I to work on, to give as gifts to her numerous friends. I found these Christmas Lolipop Noses at The Whoot. 

Above is thebasket of Christmas Lolipops heading to my daughter's Christmas Party at her school. What do you think???? She was really proud as was I. This little craft really served to bond us closer, as we talked and laughed over this craft idea. It was just what we needed to reconnect as the Christmas Season proves to be as hectic as ever.
