Re: Greenies' Chatterbox!!

Well, saw our doctor today, she is going to tell my dearly beloved he can no longer drive, next week when we see her. She is pulling his license, I am not!!!

We don't know why the sudden or progressive (don't know which or if it's both) blindness. They said there was no new stroke activity on the MRI - That was good, but no reason given for why it happened.

We have no real idea. But I do see him declining mentally as well...likely Alzheimer's like his dad...we have no idea...but we keep on keeping on, grateful for every heartbeat, every breath.

Frida, sorry you know about being a caregiver too...so very sorry!

Thanks for the prayer and well wishes!

While I am not working in cold porcelain at this time, I am sewing and coloring too...making flower cards from recycled paper, mostly envelopes and the like, junk mail. I figure I have a lot of it, might as well put it to good use. I like some of the patterns that come in envelopes, the insides...I color and cut out petals, make up flowers/butterflies and turn glue them onto cards.

My tulip ones and white daisies are favorites right now, fantasy flowers are fun too...

I will have to upload the tulip ones and post them too...I've done about 18-20 cards thus far, and my sister used flowers I put together to do another dozen of so also...having fun surprising people with a card, just to brighten their day, not signed, just sent...lots of fun!!! I can't seem to make any money with my 'art' of late, but I can sure make people's hearts smile....

Blessings and gratitude! LynneDe

Great idea LynneDe - keeps you being creative, frees the mind for a while and allows you to regroup.

Re: Greenies' Chatterbox!!

Thank you!

I had opportunity to 'show off' a few of the cards. Surprisingly, sold 2 of them!

My sister has a new friend that has a marijuana shop. In our state, they have passed the legality of marijuana, and she sells it for medicinal reasons...but she is planning on health and healing items, things that touch the heart as well as soul...as she gets her shop up and running. Only things she carries at present are the marijuana and CBD oils...anyway, my sister told her about something else I am making, Aromatic Bed Buddy Bears, essentially a rice bag in teddy-bear form, that is 'spiced' with fragrance, bits of spices in various blends...no essential oils, the real mashed (not powdered) spices...and my sister said, bring along the cards for her to see too.

I did, and though I mentioned they were spoken for, my sister had been given a few to mail out and hadn't gotten to it yet...and a couple of them sold.

Sold one of the aromatic rice bed buddy bears as well...possibly more to be sold (no consignments, outright sales only at this shop, hurrah!!!) in the fall. She bought one for a baby shower...I thought she wanted 5...my sister gave me that impression, but no, just one for now. She wanted to see five of them...don't know why, maybe to see if I could be consistent with them? They each had their own fragrance mix...she chose 'molasses cookie' blend in a chocolate color....I gather she likes earth and monotones...she liked the gray and white ones the best of what was left.

I sold 4 of my clay calla lilies also, one in white, one in red, one in orange and one in purple. She'd like to see some poppies...she likes them she said, and since I didn't have other flowers with me, I pointed her to my Facebook page...so we'll see if more flowers are also in her orders...

Most grateful for the diversion. While I spent the day with my sister, my husband and her husband spent the day together...So in effect, I had a day off.

Amazing! I am truly blessed beyond all measure.

Now, to sell enough of something or other to get my car brakes fixed. We'll see!!!

Blessings and gratitude for the day off, for promises for tomorrow...for life.

LynneDe
