My post have been few and far between lately, I havent felt like writing much. Father in law had another MRI two weeks ago and the results were not good. With the treatments (radiation & chemo) his tumor grew 25%. This is obviously devestating news for us. We were all hoping and praying for a miracle of some sort, while all the time deep down knowing what the results would ultimatly be. He will see his oncologist again next Monday to discuss the next step and to see if there really is a next step. I am very sad because I know that these are the last holidays we will spend with him. We are trying to be optimistic but he is very depressed and sad and is having a hard time thinking of any thing else. And who can really blame him? We are trying to do the most we can with the boys and him without making it overwhelming for everyone...

I hope you all understand why I havent been around and why I probably wont be around for a few weeks...thanks for understanding...

Love and hugs to you all and please enjoy the holidays with your families!

I am so busy getting ready for the craft fair, planning for the thanksgiving and the holidays.
I have hardly had a chance to come up for air.
Brian's dad is not doing so can tell he is getting worse and it makes the upcoming holidays very importatnt to us.
I want to make these holidays very special for all of us.

A different perspective-

I love that a lot of my friends are posting what they are grateful/thankful for on facebook each day during this time of year and I don't usually have time or don't want to whatever...but i have recently found a blog and it has me thinking  A LOT about all kinds of things. Each day she post a quote about expressing gratitude. I love that she is finding a way to express gratitude in everyday life.I have been following her blog for the last week and trying to keep up with her challenge, I am asking you to do the same.

She asks that you follow her and spread the word on facebook, twitter, and to pin her quotes on pinterest and she will soon have the quote be made available for download for a small $5 fee to help a family who is fighting brain cancer.

Today I was dreading going home to fold the mountains of laundry I had until I saw her quote for today and her little tidbit beneath it...really gets me thinking and makes me realize I have plenty to be thankful for.

Today I will realize how "blessed" how truly am to have a house to come home to
and a laundry room that is full of clean clothes, that are waiting for me to fold!

{Crafty Tumblers}

Here's a little something I've been working on lately. These cups are flying out of my hands as quick as I can make them. I know that there are in a lot of stores, but I think the fact that they can be personalized and personalized very quickly really makes them sell! These are the cups with the straws and screw on lids.

This is one of them complete
 it also has black fleur de lis and gold polka dots on the back

Here are my other designs- sorry about the picture quality,
I was taking the pictures on the computer screen

These are some of the monograms I have done, can do.

I'm selling the cups for $12 each, any of them can be customized
with your teams logo, name or anything your heart desires.

Anyone have suggestions/comments/constructive or not I'll take it! LOL

Meet my friend Adam!

<br />

When I asked him the hardest thing about having juvenile diabetes, he thought for a moment.
“After you’ve been doing it for four years, nothing’s actually hard,” he said. And when I asked him how his school days are different from a lot of other children’s, he thought again.
“I think we have more fire drills at my school,” he said.

Read the entire article & learn more about Adam

  • Adam is my friend Rhonda's son.
  • He is great kid!
  • He deals with all of his crazy "Schneckenaunties"- (that's what my friends and I all, call ourselves because we work at a school called "Schneckenburger")
  • He was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when he was 2 years old.
  • He is stuck over 3,000 times a year
  • He receives shots of insulin and finger pricks to check his blood sugar numerous times a day
  • He never complains!
Please take a moment to read the article the local newspaper wrote about him last school year around this time- its time for the Juvenile Diabetes Walk next month. We will all be walking with the "A-Team" (Adam's Team) in hopes that there will one day find a cure for diabetes!

As much as Adam is a great kid- his Mom is just a GREAT!
These are just a few of recent post about Adam-
  •       Six years ago today Adam's life and mine were changed forever; he was diagnosed as a Type I diabetic at age two. Our life has continually revolved around trying to keep Adam's blood sugar where it needs to be to avoid long term damage to his kidneys, eyes, and other organs. PRAYING FOR A CURE!
  • Looks like a long night ahead of blood sugar monitoring... Adam is low and his sugar won't go up. Looks like I'll get to catch up on every ones FB lives and photos so I don't fall asleep!!
Please keep them both in your thoughts and pray for a cure!

5 Things We Dont Know About You~Link Up!~

Ok, so of course...I couldn't get the actual linky party to work (Still a blogger beginner- never through a party before) so here can post your list of 5 things we don't know about you here in the comments section OR just post your link in the comments section and everyone will head on over to your blog and learn those 5 new things about you. I will go first!

5 Things You Don't Know About Me

 I have a pacemaker- I had the surgery when I was 20 years old.(I'm 32 now) I had to have a pacemaker implanted due to a heart arrhythmia. I lead a perfectly normal life and no one ever knows I have it and I forget about it most of the time honestly.

 I am the oldest of 17 grandchildren. I love my cousins! I am 32, and the youngest is 5. We are a HUGE family.

 I have had 2 miscarriages and even though I have my 2 boys that I am so blessed to have, I think about those 2 miscarriages, all.the.time. Every time someone announces a pregnancy, every time someone gives birth. Even when someone else experiences some types of loss, I begin to think, would they have been boys or girls, Goofy like Eli? Would they have had that sweet face that Ben Henry gives me? 

I am a cheek biter. When I get nervous, anxious, or just start to stare off in to space I will find myself biting on the inside of my cheek. This is actually a family thing. My grandmother, mother, and most of my aunts do it as well. So is it inherited? Or is it something I learned from watching them? Weird huh?

 I hate other people feet! All these crafty projects on Pinterest creep me out! The thought of having to take of my students shoes and socks and touch their feet totally skeeves me out! Writing this is actual freaking me out a bit LOL. I can deal wit my husbands, and my kids, but anyone else NO WAY! Socks are a must! and ya know whats even funnier? I wear flip flops constantly, so my feet are always out and on display!

Alright everyone...I have given you my 5 things...share yours. leave a link in the comments section OR leave a link to your post but leave us with something...share share share

Rounding everyone up....

Today is like my Pre-game! A tailgating of sorts. Tomorrow I want to host a party. I want to host a party where we all post a list of 5 things we want to share about ourselves that we dont normally tell others. Things that you cant tell, just by looking at us. It can be something secretive, something silly, even something you have been waiting to share, or somthing you have never told a soul. Get ready to share and round up a few friends to come to Warm & Fuzzy's first ever stop & share party! Its starts tomorrow!! Be there!!

Monograms & Mimosas Shower

I recently had a Monograms & Mimosas shower for my BESTIE Kimmy,and I've needed awhile to recoup. The shower went off perfectly and it was a huge success! Everyone had a great time and said they enjoyed themselves.
 I will have to one day write a post about my craft fail. I was supposed to make these adorable cake ball favors well I bought some really greasy frosting and the sticks wouldn't even stay stuck inside the ball- lets just say it was a MESS! But again, for another day...
Here are the pics..

With all the pictures I took of all the monogrammed stuff
I actually forgot to take a picture of the Mimosa table! DUH!

Hope everyone enjoys!!
Make sure you leave a comment and say Hi!
I love visitors!

What to do? What to do?

I don't have a fireplace, so we don't have a mantle. We do own a very large entertainment center that has a large area/space at the top that is empty. It is bugging me that its just empty so I want to spruce up the space. I really love the look of the shutters that everyone has been showing lately like this:

this one is from
I would love to do two or three separate shutters with a picture of each of the boys and maybe either a wreath like shown above or even a "T" for our last name. Now I am sure that I would change things in and out for the holidays and such but I am not sure where to get the shutters from. Did most of you buy shutters paint and distress them yourselves or did you find them at a flea market? I am kinda at a crossroads as to what to do.
I did find some other ideas on pinterest that were cute as well
How great would this be in a kids playroom? from

Love the simplicity of this one- from the lovely Char @
Love Love Love that these are red, {heart} the pop of the color!
And this really has me thinking about doing it myself:
thanks for the inspiration

So, if you've done a shutter project- post a pic! Or leave me a comment and tell me how you did it. I need some info. I am SICK of looking at this empty space!! Thanks everyone!
