Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

I am thinking about everyone that can't spend time with their loved ones... no matter the situation please know that you are loved today and always.... I love you!

Wishing those those brave men and women that are currently protecting our country and can't be home with family a very Merry Christmas! Thank you for your service!

Always remembering our loved ones that are having another Christmas in heaven... there isn't a day that goes by that you aren't missed.

I hope everyone enjoys this day and makes lasting memories for years to come and perhaps creating new memories. Have a wonderful day everyone and Merry Christmas!

Ok... here's the finished crafts! Most of you know how important Grandma Ruby (this was Brandon's Grandma) was to Brandon and I (as well as the rest of our Spry bunch) and I helped take care of her until she passed away. Grandma Ruby always wore housecoats and very seldom did you see her without one on when she was at home. After she passed away (September 11, 2009) I had a pillow made for each of her 4 boys from 4 different housecoats she wore the most. I have kept the scrap material thinking I would make something out of it eventually but didn't know when.

I love making/giving meaningful gifts. You know, ones that you can't really buy from a store and something that is unique yet full of memories. On our most recent trip to Las Vegas we were looking in one of the Cirque stores and saw a great idea (sorry Pintrest... you can't take credit for this hair brain idea). I cut up the material from 5 housecoats (sorry forgot to tell you I had one made for me) and put the scraps in glass ornament balls. Each ball has 2 buttons from the housecoats and I am going to hang a red "R" from each one. These will be given to the 4 boys to remember their mom. My hope is that each year as their families put their Christmas trees up together they will have some good memories from a very special woman that meant so much to us and share the stories with their grandchildren. Christmas for me is about creating memories that last a lifetime and when that lifetime is over we remember those special memories by doing something like this.

I really wish I had something from my Granny Crews to do an ornament with and I know I can probably find things to create one. Guess all my good ideas often times comes too late (she died when I was 19 years old) so I am sharing this with you to create some of those memories now.... What an inexpensive way to remember a special day.... Now you are welcome for the inspiration!

Oh one last thing... If you know any of the Spry boys (Tilford, Lonnie, Karl and/or Terry) and any of their kids... This is a "SPRY-ize" so please keep it between us... K?

Good mornin' my little ice cubes! Sugars... I DO NOT enjoy cold weather at ALL!!!! If you are one of those people that does enjoy this kind of weather.... you are nuts!!! Looks like we will be doing a little Spring Cleaning at the shop to hopefully get Spring here a little quicker! If you don't have to get out today please don't! Those precious little babies don't need to be outside at all and please make sure any outdoor critters have a place to go for some warmth. If you have to get out in this weather make sure your cars/trucks have time to warm up, make sure you have a full tank of fuel and put extra layers on.... Oh and be nice to everyone that has to work out in this stuff... it's just too dang cold! Now go enjoy your day!

Just a great reminder ....
 
I was in Hobby Lobby the other day picking up a few last minute things (don't we all seem to come up with the perfect ideas just days before the holidays) and I just happened to go down an isle and saw this beauty looking back at me. I knew I had to have this gentle reminder and I hung it in the ladies bathroom at our shop. Makes me smile whenever I see it and reminding me why I chose to pay it forward! Enjoy your day!

I knew I forgot to post something this morning...  as they say... Better late than never! :)

Good mornin' sweet cheeks....It's finally Friday! {insert happy dance here} Finishing up a few crafts for some family members (simmer down y'all... I'll post a picture later today to give you some inspiration with enough time to get one done for your family if you choose), a quick Ambassador Executive Meeting, a ribbon cutting and then dinner with Greg, Jill Decker Greening & my adorable niece Kinly to celebrate her upcoming birthday (hard to believe she's going to be 4... Kinly not Jill that is) and Christmas! Love spending time with my friends and celebrating! Have a great day y'all and with the hustle and bustle of the holidays fast approaching... just remember to smile. You don't know what hardships others are facing and your smile alone can change a bad day into a better day.....plus you don't want to get wrinkles from being grouchy... nope I love each and ever wrinkle on my face 'cause sugar.... I am happy with what I have! (I'm not talkin' about material things either... I'm talkin' things we can't buy)
