More wonderful pictures of Germany

You have to experience Christmas in Germany just once! Put it on your bucket list, it is worth it, alone for the good food.
You have to go to Germany to get beautiful cakes like that. Oh my gosh, we were in heaven that day to pick out what we wanted with our cup of coffee. The place was just out of this world. Everything was made right there. I only can say it was yummy.

If life gives you lemons, make lemon drops!

I don't know where to start, it has been a long time since I blogged. Life just got in the way for many enjoyable things to do. I was diagnosed in June of 2014 with DCIS, Ductual Carcinoma in Situ, early stage breast cancer, 4 surgeries later. I did not need any Chemo or Radiation, thank goodness. Hopefully this will be the end of it. It has been tuff, because you never think it will hit you and then when you hear this awful word "Cancer", you think your life is over, but believe me, you need to have a positive attitude to get you through all this. My family was a big help too. Then in September of 2015 I had knee surgery. Sometimes I ask myself, what did I do wrong in my life, that I have been punished with all these horrible things. Well I guess it is what it is. My motto from now on is "if life gives you lemons, make lemon drops".Hmmmmm and they taste good! I haven't done much in the creating and crafting field, but want to get back again soon and do what I love. Is all collecting dust right now. I will be back!

Getting back on track

Well, it has been a while updating my blog. Life just got in the way. But I am back. I have some great news. I am happy to announce, I am a new seller on I finally made it into the designing of my first pattern. Just something simple and easy,a snowman head ornament. This little guy is about 7" tall and so much fun to make. I also will list soon the kits for this to make, almost everything will be included, just a few things you have to buy or have already on hand to finish this little guy. The e-pattern is also available on Etsy. Now I have no more excuses not to finish my next pattern, which I started last year and never gotten around to it. It will be a Santa on a candle stick. You might have one of them at home and don't know what to do with them, or a good place to buy them are at the Charity stores, like Goodwill, Salvation Army and such. Endless possibilities there. You get kind of hooked buying them. I know Christmas is still far away, but it is never to early to start thinking about it, especially if you do shows. So get going and collect those candle sticks!

Dahlias, the size of dinner plates

A few weeks ago we went to a local Dahlia Farm, which grow beautiful varieties in all shapes and sizes and colors. Some of them were as big as dinner plates. I don't think I have ever seen such big flowers before. It was a beautiful day for taking these pictures. I was lucky on some of the flowers, bumble bees were busy collecting pollen. I just love taking pictures of nature.

Sporting a purple cast

Well, life is not so good at the moment, or should I say it is good but there are some bumps in the road, yes I think I will like that. I have finally found out what ailment I have in my right hand/wrist since almost 2 years. First I was diagnosed with an overused wrist, now after my MRI, I was told I have a tendon which is not going back into the groove where it suppose to go, so we are trying it with a six week cast and if that fails, well surgery it will be. I do hope it doesn't come to this. Received my first application already for my christmas shows, so sad I cannot attend this year. This is a first for me ever, not to attend a show and sell my handmade goodies, hopefully they will take me back next year. It is very hard to give up crafting and sewing for now. It will get better, think positive.
