Here We Go Again.............

Can you believe it? After 15 short months, we are at it again.
Yes, we are moving.
I really hate moving, but since we have to go, I am eager to get out of here!
There are a lot of things I will miss about Madisonville; 
all my friends, the YMCA, my dulcimer group, and all the wildlife in our backyard.
Kentucky is a beautiful state.
Louisiana is a beautiful state too.

So, it's good-bye Kentucky...hello Louisiana
As soon as we sell the house though.
Anyone interested?

FINALLY! My Craft Room!!!

So....here is my craft room, finally put together after 15 months of living in this house...just in time to move. Yes..move; better late than never, right?
Here you see a cabinet I first bought when we were homeschooling YEARs ago. Now I keep all my fabric, buttons, and other sewing stuff in it. The five gallon bucket on the left side of is something my daughter made for girls camp a looooooooooong time ago. We now use it to keep all our glue, tape, etc in. On the top of the cabinet, you will notice a couple of my Thirty One products. They work great to keep some of my jewelry making stuff in. It says...tappingflaming on the one box.  You will also notice to the right side is a desk, with all my early morning seminary stuff on it.
Here is my jewelry station.
Scrapbooking stuff in the clear drawers, and a lot of my Thirty One stuff, oh and don't tell the kids, but I have Christmas gifts hidden in there too...hehehe...
More of my jewelry making stuff...
Some earrings I've made.
In the cabinet to the left, one of my son's computers, which will be headed out to Idaho in January with him (sad face).
Well, there you have it...my craft room....
Sure hope it helps the house to sell...
We have a room for her,
and a room for him (a nice room with a pool table).

One Busy Life!!!

Life sure has kept me busy, but that is good! Keeps me out of trouble, lol
Life also has a lot of bumps in the road too. We have lived in Kentucky for about 15 months, and guess what!? We are moving, yep, you read it right, we are moving again....
When I called my daughter to tell her the news, she, of course, asked where. I told her to guess, then I told her where...back to Monroe, La. 

SILENCE on the other end....

Then she said, really?! You move away when we move to Louisiana, now that we are getting ready to move to NC, you come back?


Life has a way, sometimes....
That being said, I have mixed emotions about moving. We have had so many great things happen here in Madisonville, and have met some really nice people. I hate leaving my friends. 

When I first got here, there were my church friends I first met. My husband had already been here for about nine months, so he was able to get to know a lot of them. They are so nice, and have made me feel very comfortable. 

I joined the YMCA, and met a lot of really nice ladies there. Pilates, Yoga, and all my swimming classes have been so much fun, especially with all my "Pam" friends; seems like everyone there in is named Pam, lol. From one of the Pam's I have also found out about a photography club, a ladies stitch club AND my dulcimer group.  Each of these groups have very nice people in them too. So...in the short 15 months I've been here, I have met A LOT of people...all very wonderful individuals!
Another of my Pam friends also told me about a new coffee shop that was opening up that wanted local artisans to sell their crafts. I now have my jewelry in that coffee shop.
I know we are put where we are needed. Might be that we are needed in a particular place for others, or maybe for ourselves. Either way, I know we were met to be here in Madisonville. Many things have happened while we were here, that would not have happened if we had never come to KY.
Now off we go...back to Monroe. I have a lot of close friends there, so I am excited to go back and be with them again. Not sure when that will happen, as we need to sell the house. Hopefully it will be a lot quicker than last time.
