About Me

My photo
I'm a wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother. I try to be creative - sometimes it works, most times it doesn't. I'm my own worst critic! I'm self taught in a lot of my crafts, but have taken quilting classes and most recently a beginner's rug hooking class. I enjoy both crafts tremendously. I'd like to learn to be a better gardener.

Our levy passed!  It's good to know that the people of Lorain County cared enough about the well being of the children to pass the levy.  It is so appreciated by all of us here at Children Services!

The weather has gotten a tad cooler - okay - cold!  It was 27 degrees when I came into work this morning!  I'm glad I got my flower gardens cleaned up this past weekend cuz I think it would be too cold for me to be out there very long working on them. 

Crafting... not much getting done there since the weekend.  I just need to get motivated - don't know why I'm not... 

I don't usually put up Halloween decorations but when coming home from exercise one night I saw the cutest pumpkins - they were mesh and had lights on them.  I only bought one as they were a little pricey.  I meant to go check them out after Halloween to see if they'd gone down in price because I'd really like to have two.  I don't think I'd decorate for Halloween but more for the fall.  Those pumpkins would do as a fall decoration just as well as for a Halloween decoration.  Then next fall I'd like to buy a rope of fall leaves and drape them around my front door and add some other "country" style decorations for fall.  We'll see how that goes!

Hope everyone has a great day!

  1. Char, I buy all my decorations on special or at a secondhand store like Value Village. Nice to see that you did your 2nd post. I hope that you will soon be posting photos. JB
