Just stay busy... bussy... buzzzzzzy

My weekends are so full of this booth. It and my girls is what keeps me going. Trying to keep it fresh isn't the easiest thing to do and I am not very successful at it. I am one of those people that wants to start from scratch as opposed to tweeking something. I would love to get my place in Canton at First Monday but I am also afraid of failure and want to be in control. One thing the death of my son has taught me is that I am NOT in control and never will be. Anyway, I tweeked a few things yesterday and didn't take pics AFTER the tweeking but took them before. Where did I put my mind?

Don't cry because it's over ~ Smile because it happened
Because in the end ~ it was worth it

Faith is believing that one of two things will happen
there will be something solid for you to stand on...
or you will be taught to fly
The truly painful goodbyes are the ones
that are never said and never explained
I play that same song over and over
because it reminds me of you

Living with the pain of grief

I attended a workshop on Saturday, "Living with the Pain of Grief". This workshop was sponsored by Beth Marcello at her business eLearningK12 in Thibodeaux, LA. I can't say enough about it. There was laughter and tears and a few skeptics that are now hard core believers. It is comforting to be connected to your lost loved ones and to interact with others who are living with grief. I can't say enough about Bhrett and MaryJo McCabe. http://www.maryjomccabe.com/ I met others who are dealing the loss of someone they love and I was drawn to several that I believe will be lifelong relationships. I have come to realize that there is no such thing as a chance meeting. I went to this workshop because it was in Thibodeaux and that is where Jordan was born, it just seemed like it was meant to be. Everything happens for a reason !

I am so excited

Sadie Olive Designs is going to design my blog. I am a visual learner and just can't do this on my own. I would love any suggestions that anyone has for me about blogging. Oh my, this ain't gonna be pretty.

furniture redos

These nightstands sold in one day!

This lowboy was in terrible shape - so sad.
Just a little help from the hubby and some TLC from yours truly and she is gorgous.

This childs chifferobe is beautiful.

Did you see this desk on the trailer?
Bet you didn't recognize it.

This little french provincal nightstand didn't last long either.

The last haul from Canton

This was our first time to haul a trailer and boy am I glad we did. (we usually cram in all inside and on top of the suburban-scary !!!) Now, I have tons of furniture to paint and make pretty. This was the weekend after Thanksgiving Day and we had a fabulous time.
