What a Busy Time

There have been so many things happening since my last post! Camping trips, Bible conference, crawling baby, Mother's Day, spring storms, jewelry making and work.

We had a great camping trip at the end of April. Even though the reserved camp site park was closed due to flooding we were able to find another on short notice and had a good weekend. It was cold, though.

The following week we had a Camp Meeting at church - like a preacher's conference where there is preaching from morning 'til night, just stopping to eat! Boy, what a week. We had a lot of people to feed and the preaching was excellent. The sermons can be found here These are all excellent and I encourage you to listen to them.

Baby Olivia is crawling and really close to walking. She just gets more adorable every day. Being a grammy is really wonderful. I think her parents are going to have their hands full with this one but I am sure they will be able to handle it. Here she is wearing her grandfather's hat and sitting in her camping chair.

We had a terrible wind on Mother's Day. The powerlines across the street were down so they blocked our street just before and after our house. It was still a great day for our family. We had 4 generations together that day.

I am trying to get ready for the spring Bead Art. I am beading every spare minute and just got some new supplies so the creative process is in full speed mode. Here is the information for those living in the St. Louis area who are interesting in attending:

The mural project is done, for all practical purposes. I finished it in time for the camp meeting but some of the applied letters kept falling off! I finally glued them all on and no problems since then. I need to take a picture for my personal records and then I will share it.

I have three shops on etsy now. They are:

Rosevine Design is primarily jewelry with a few additional embellishment items.

Mommy Made This is a shop I share with my daughter, Rachel, and it is all needlework type items, knitted, crochet, sewn types of things for your home, family and pets. It is a new shop and we are slowly stocking it with great items like hair barrettes, doggie blankets, tote bags and purses.

PhotoBob is for photographs by Bob Ubaudi. It has not been stocked yet but will contain a lot of barn pictures taken in Missouri and Illinois and some other matted pictures that will have inspirational themes.

I have also joined indiepublic and can be found here:
