About Me

South Louisiana
I have been married for 20 years to a great husband and we have 8 children ranging in age from 1 to 18 years. I am a homeschooling mom, which can be very challenging. I love sewing, knitting, reading, gardening and have recently started oil painting. I love to create. I really want to have a blog to show off some of the stuff I create, but I also want to share about my life and family. email me at ctrich8@bellsouth.net

I feel so loved : )

In the last couple of weeks I have been given three awards! Heidi Ann at Foxgloves Fabric and Folly, Lola at Lola....Again and Tine at Sodeste all gave me this award! I feel so special : ) Thank you so much, ladies, y'all made my month!

I am now supposed to pass this award along to other deserving blogs! I will give this award to

Kelci at Crafty Mama Creations
Michelle at Eat, Sleep, Create
Lisa at Polka Dot Cottage
Sandy at Sandy Kisses
Jona at Stop Staring and Start Sewing
Marie at The Villa Family
Jill at Thou Shalt Not Whine

On the creative homefront, I have barely been sewing. I ended up with a cold or my allergies are acting up or something. I just know I feel like poop! Not bad enough to be sick in bed, but bad enough to want to just lay around all day while my kids destroy the house and nothing gets done. I seem to feel a *little* better today, I guess I need to tackle that pile of laundry and discipline my children. Why is it when you don't feel well and aren't staying on top of everything, the kids just kind of go wild? I mean, they know how they are supposed to behave, but unless you enforce it, they act like animals. I have a going away party for a friend tonight, her husband has been relocated to Houston, so that will be a nice and sorely needed break : ) Dh can have fun herding the animals for a few hours LOL

Everyone needs to head over to Foxgloves Fabric and Folly today! She is having a 100th post giveaway and has 3 beautiful handmade gifts. A beautiful heirloom quilt, a Christmas table runner, and a Summer of 2008 pillow. So, that is 3 lucky winners! Make sure you leave a comment today or tomorrow, because she is going to draw the names on August 1!

Thanks for the sweet award Tonya! Maybe you should visit your friends when they move to Houston and come by here! Wishful thinking!

Hope you feel better!
My kids always act like animals when I'm sick too, but they love to take care of me (or at least try to!) It's so sweet!

Thank you Tonya!! Wow!

I hope you start feeling better soon! I know how the house can turn into "Lord of the Flies" when mom isn't able to stay on top of things.

Tine said...

You are so very welcome! I am sorry you are feeling bad :-(
Hope you had a great time at the party!!

Jill said...

Hi Tonya!
Thanks so much for the award!

I hope you got feeling better. It makes me crazy when I don't feel well, and the kids think it's a vacation from chores and being well behaved.
It just makes so much more work fir me when I'm feeling better.
