The Creekside Collection is Making Memories for Special People

​This very special order turned out to be one of my all time favorites! If you look real close there is a tiny little dark brown snail shell in the center. 

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

What makes this so precious it that the sweet person that ask me to make these brought me the creek rocks from a place where her grandfather took her when she was a child. She plans to give them to her children and nieces and nephews for a cherished gift. When I told her they where finished she cried with excitement. This is what its about. Making memories forever. I just think this would make a great memory for anyone to have close to their hearts.❤❤❤

Kindness is like Snow

​Kindness is like snow, it makes everything it touches beautiful! 

Spread it around as much as you can! 

Back in the old days when people weren’t so rushed and had so many things to do, people actually visited their family and spent time with each other. I remember when my Granny was still living every Sunday after church everyone when to her house and spent the afternoon and had a big supper. Us kids played and had a great time while the older adults played horsehoes, worked a puzzle, played cards or sat around and drank and shared what had been going on the week before. Our family was so much closer back then.  I decided since my health issue that my I needed to see them more. So my husband and I went on a little adventure yesterday to spread a little cheer.

 We visited my uncle that just recently got out of the hospital strangely enough because he had a blood clot. We also went and ate dinner with my momma and stopped to visit my sweet Aunt Marandi. This is the most I have done since my hospital visit and it wore me out, but it was so worth it.  I plan to do a lot more of this in 2017. Life is really short and we only have a few moments to be here. Family is precious. 

During our little kindness road trip we also had got to enjoy some gorgeous views and scenery. We live in such a beautifulplace. It’s amazing what God had created for us to explore and enjoy. 

Christmas Crafts and Making Memories that Last! 

Spending time with your family and friends is what the holidays is all about. A great way to make some memories and share some quality time with your family is making handmade ornaments. They are also priceless and the memories are something everyone will never forget. 

Some of my favorite things about Christmas is the handmade ornaments. Each year I try to come up with a new creative ideas for ornaments. As you all know I love to recycle things and this is a great way also to do that. 

I love to get the Christmas Ornaments out and put them on the tree. My tree never has much of a theme or pretty cordinating colors but it always turns our to be extra special with all the personlized touches from everyone.


 

Some of my most precious possessions are made from popcycle sticks, pom poms, and hot glue. I have ornaments made by my son, nephews, friends, and family and they are so special to me. I even have some ornaments I made when I was a kid. I was so grateful that my mom keep them and later gave them to me. 

There are so many ideas for Christmas Ornaments when you look. Lots of them cost very little or could be done with out any cost. When I was a kid we made salt dough ornaments every year. I always looked forward to it. If you don’t have a big budget these make great gifts as well.  Check out my Pinterest Board. I have a collection of recipes and tutorials.
