A BOX OF CARMEN LOVE CAME TODAY

XOXO
~AMY




I  WANTED  TO  START  THIS  POST  WITH  A  SWEET


GRAPHIC  THAT  MS.  BEAUTIFUL  REBECCA  FROM  A


GATHERING  OF  THOUGHTS  OFFERED  SOME  TIME  AGO.


I  DON'T  KNOW  WHY  BUT  I  LOVE...ADORE...AND  COLLECT


PICTURES  OF  DUTCH  CHILDREN.  I  THINK  THEY  ARE  SO


VERY  BEAUTIFUL.



VALENTINES  DAY  IS  JUST  12  DAYS  AWAY.


MY  SONS'  27TH  BIRTHDAY  IS  FEBRUARY  12,  2010.






NOW  MS.  CARMEN  WE  RECEIVED  YOUR  GIVE  AWAY  LATE  AFTERNOON


FEBRUARY 1. 2010.   I  WAS  ASLEEP  BUT  MY  DARLING  HUSBAND  OPENED


THE  BOX  AND  IS  TRAINED  HOW  TO  TAKE  PICTURES  IF  HE  IS  GOING  TO


LOOK  THROUGH  A  BOX  ADDRESSED  TO  MOI!




I AM  GOING  TO  LET  HIM  BLOG....HE  KNOWS  HOW  TO  SPIFF  UP  THE


PICTURES,  CARMEN  YOU  ARE  THE  LOVELY  PEACOCK  AND  OF  COURSE  I


AM  THE  BEE.  THE  BEE  IS  SPECIAL  TO  ME.


HONEY  LOVE,  YOU  HAVE  DONE  A  WONDERFUL  JOB....XOXOXO


CARMEN,  THE  LAVENDER  CARD  WAS  BEAUTIFUL  AND  I  WILL


TREASURE  WHAT  YOU  WROTE.


CARMEN,  YOU  WILL  FIND  THIS  FUNNY.....THE  PLASTIC  BAG  MUST  HAVE  BROKE 


DURING  SHIPMENT  AND  ORNIE'S  WERE  LOOSE  IN  THE  BOX.  MY  HUSBAND  THOUGHT


THEY  WER  "COOKIES".......WHEN  I  WOKE  UP  AND  HE  SHOWED  ME  THE  BOX,


HE  SAID,  "I  WOULDN'T  EAT  ONE  OF  THOSE  LITTLE  COOKIE  ANIMALS.....I


ALMOST  BROKE  MY  DENTURES  BITING  INTO  IT."   HAHAHA


"HONEY,"  I  SAID,  "THOSE  ARE  ORNIE  BOWL  FILLERS."


HE  WENT  OFF  MUMBLING  ABOUT  WHY  ANYONE  WOULD  COOK  A


COOKIE  CALLED  AN  ORNIE  AND  THEN  PUT  THEM  IN  A  BOWL  TO  ATTRACT


OTHER  PEOPLE  INTO  TAKING  A  BITE.  HAHAHAHA


THANK  YOU  SO  MUCH  FOR  THIS  AWESOME  GIVE  AWAY.  THE  POOR  ROOSTER


LOST  HIS  BEAK  DURING  TRAVEL  BUT  I  THINK  WE  CAN  FIX  HIM......YOU


KNOW  HOW  I  LOVE  ROOSTERS  AND  ANGELS.


I HOPE  YOUR  BACK  IS  HEALING  NICELY  SINCE  SURGERY,  CARMEN.


IF  YOU  ARE  NOT  FAMILIAR  WITH  CARMEN'S  BLOG  PLEASE GO  TO:




SHE  ALSO  HAS  TWO  OTHER  WONDERFUL  BLOGS.


GRACIE  ANN  AND  I  WANT  TO  THANK  YOU  FOR  SPENDING  A  PART  OF  YOUR


DAY  WITH  US.  IT  MEANS  ALOT  TO  US.


THERE  ARE  STILL  SO  MANY  PEOPLE  IN  NEED  OF  DESPERATE  PRAYER.....I  COULDN'T


POSSIBLY  LIST  THEM  ALL  BECAUSE  I  DON'T  KNOW  THEM  ALL  BUT  GOD  DOES.


SHARON,  SWEET ANN,  DAVID  AND  KATHY,  ELIZABETH  AND  ROY,  CARMEN,


TERRY  AND  HER  MOTHER  AS  SHE  RECOVERS  FROM  SURGERY,  SHARON,  SALLY,


KRISTIE,  CLYTIE,  DONNA,  ANASTASIA,  MICHELE, JAMIE,  SHAUNA,  COLETTE, 


GINA,  JEFF  AND  ROBBI.  MIKE  AND  TAWNA,  TERESA,  JOHNNY,  JACKIE,


WILL,  CASS,  ALL  THOSE  TAKING  CARE  OF  A  CHRONICALLY  ILL  FAMILY


MEMBERS.  MY  HEART  IS  WITH  YOU  AND  I  ASK  GOD  TO  INCREASE  YOUR


STRENGTH  AND  PEACE  AND  REST  TIME.


*********************

MY  SOUL  MELTETH  FOR  HEAVINESS:  STRENGTHEN  THOU


ME  ACCORDING  UNTO  THY  WORD.


~PSALM  119:28

LOL....oh my goodness....MEN! That is so funny! I'm always afraid of sending things through the post office, it seems no matter how many times you write "fragile" on the box, doesn't matter! Yes, my back is healing very well, I'm getting the staples out today:) Glad everything made it there in "decent" condition, hugs, Carmen

Oh! That is so funny about the ornies! I love it. My kids were wondering what I was laughing at. Thank you for starting my day with a laugh.

Hello. I found you via JBR's blog. I love your profile, and am particularly struck with the way you say your daughter "won" her battle with cancer. I suspect you are a brave woman, and obviously one of great faith. I love to journal, too. Nice to meet you.

Dear Debbie, congratulations on your win. Nice things. You are so fortunate to have a hubby who shares knowledge of the putter and will to help you. Happy belated birthday to your dear Mom. I was so glad to see pictures of you and your family. You look great. I will always hold you and your family dear to my heart after getting to you and be allowed to share in your journey with Amy. Blessings

And today is Carmen's birthday!

I like Carmen so much that I barely want to hit her with my flail!!! She is a cutie...and so very talented.

Your poor husband...her ornies could fool anyone...so could the candles she pours, you would not believe how real they look, I always have to take a double-look at her recipes to see if there's a wick sticking out of something...

Lynn said...

Such a beautiful giveaway you won Debbie! You know, my hubby would have thought the ornies were little cookies too! How funny!

Have a good evening Debbie, and thank you so much for prayers for Michele and Jamie.. Means ever so much..

Blessings,
~Lynn

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. here is what i used for my lampshades. Material, i traced the pattern with some computer paper, (lol) hot glue gun,scissors and some trim to hide the rough edges of the material. Now on a couple i did the whole tracing thing, but sewed it like for a slipcover and popped it over the lamp.I have been having fun. Hope that helps. mishelle
