Who wants to Barter???

I do, that's who.
Here's what I'd like:  Primitive Candles, in the jar.  Grungy, really prim looking jar candles.
Primitive tags for my dolls.  I just haven't found what I want yet.
Here's what I have to offer:
Depending on the trade of course, dolls. 
Let me know your thoughts and offers!
You can email me if you prefer to keep it private.

Hope you are all having a good day, I'm doing a bit better today.
Seems we will have a new grandbaby any minute now......tick tock, tick tock...........
When I get the call, I'm racing off, and away, out of town for a few days to be with my daughter.
I almost forgot, I'm going to be in the delivery room!  Woohoo!
Oh, BTW,
I've added more epatterns to the list, you can see them on my picturetrail site.

It's the little things.

I haven't blogged in almost two weeks now.  I'm going thru a "thing"....can't really put my finger on it but sometimes I'm just feeling so sad that I need to cry.  I'm making myself crazy, thinking I am losing it.....just a little.
I hide this from my family.  Or so I think I do.
I go from feeling sad, to feeling depressed to extreme sadness.  Now mind you, none of this has a basis for being....I only know that I am feeling, at times, pretty low.
I'm's probably part of that
meno-you-KNOW thing.
So, today as I was working on my taxes (yeah, yeah, I know, last minute, you say!)  I felt that depair coming on.  It truly had nothing to do with the taxes. lol
I stop, take a deep breath, and dig in deeper to the pile of receipts and paperwork.
Out from between two sheets of paper, a small scrap of paper about 2" X 4", slipped onto the table.
I'm not sure how it ended up where it did or why but here is what is written on it:
"For I know the plans I have for you" declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future"
Jeremiah 29:11
For sure it was no accident, that little slip of paper in the wrong place,
at the RIGHT time!

I'm guilty.

As charged.
I did it, I ate the donut.
I tried not to, really I did.
But everytime I walked into the kitchen, it beckoned to me.
"Pssssssst, Maureen!"
"Over Here"
.....I tried to ignore it, even went upstairs.
But I knew I had to come down eventually.
It just kept calling out to me.  I even went out to feed the animals and then
when I came back it, it started in again...."HEY YOU, Over here, you know you wanna!"
I got so mad that I ate it.  And then I was really mad that I ate the donut,
So, I ate his brother too!
I deserve it, afterall, it's snowing again.........ugh.

I'm buried!

Yep, buried. 
Just popping in to say that I AM still here.
I'm trying to catch up with my orders, shipping like a mad-woman every day.
Just plain buried.

But, I have good intentions.
I am planning to finish some new stuff this week.

The weather here has been very un-spring and chilly.
If you have any extra sun or warmth, could you push it to the northeast portion of the U.S. please?

Thank you in advance!
May your day be a good one.
