Hello!!! Can you all believe Christmas is here! OMG!!! 2012 flew right past me!  I LOVE, LOVE this time of the year though. Especially here in Florida.  Today the weather was 70 degrees, you can't go wrong! We have all the pretty colors of fall, and we've had some cold night, but nothing uncomfortable "yet", so I'm enjoying it since i HATE, hate cold weather!
But to this hop.  12 opportunities for you to be ornament inspired! The Pride of Just a Few Friends, has been soo busy, pouncing to create that ONE special Ornament.  You should see our dens, covered in glitter, ribbon and paper! In my case, my den is covered in sequence!! I chose to create THE one ornament, I'm gonna wanna keep for ever, mainly cause it took FOREVER to make! lol OMG...i didn't anticipate the time this would take, but now that it's done, I love it! All the 600 pins and sequences I used, makes this ornament heavy. Almost feels like it's made from a solid ball, when indeed it's made from a light Styrofoam ball.    
Watch the video HERE to see more on the supplies I used and pictures of the process...
I liked working on this so much I made 2 ornaments, totally different from each other, but equally fun to make!

Justa Few Friends THANKSGIVING decor Hop!

ROARRR everyone! How are you all??  I am excited the holidays are here!  Thanksgiving is always fun for us cause we get to eat all day, some tv...sleep some more then eat again! lol  ahhh special memories!   So  Kimi, the other Alpha, hosted this hop...she challenged us in the den, (we are now 11!!!) to create a Fall Themed / Thanksgiving home decor item.  It "almost'' stumped me! but after sitting in my den, wondering What  was gonna create or alter, out of the corner of my eye, I saw it.  A sad little basket that was almost thrown away 2 weeks ago!! I've had it for years and now it's going to sit, front and center. on the buffet table!! take a look at what I made...its really simple...really easy...and was really fun.

I've had this old basket for ever! and now  it's time to breath some life into it...Photobucket
This is what it looks like on the inside...

A little paint...

Speed up the drying process...

Get, lace, trim , beads and your hot glue gun...
I ended up removing the stand of pink beads and adding a different trim...

I thought this trim went better with the basket...
This trim came in a RAK from my sweet friend Ceci in Calif!!  Thanks girl!!!
Add flowers, here, there and everywhere and presto... a cute spoon, knife and fork caddy for your
Thanksgiving Feast!!!


The beautiful cross stitched basket was a gift from my sweet friend in Scotland!
 I have a video you can watch for more HERE. Also, please go to Kat's blog to see what she created!

oh oh oh...before I forget...Last months blog hop was also so much fun for all of us in the den.  The cubs were challenged to create a slider card.  For most it was the first time to create that type of card.  And they made me very proud...they made awesome Halloween Slider cards! We had to chose 1 as the winner of that challenge.  Needless to say it was not an easy thing to do!!!! lord!! But after several days of going back and forth, the 3 alphas all agreed on one lucky Cub! sooooo LOUD ROARS please....
the winner of our Challenge is...
our lovely cub  
SHERENCE!!!!  (proudmommy702)

I am so Blessed!!!

Hello everyone! I do not know where to start to THANK all of you, my friends, my followers, who have left me such kind words and kept us in your prayers.  The amount of emails I recieved during the few weeks I was feeling so down was totally a Blessing!! I read each and everyone and tried to answer everyone...if by chance I missed you, please don't be hurt or think I don't care. I have been so busy and overwhelmed lately, but I do CARE and I do appreciate everyone and each of you!!!
Now for a follow up...Brandi is doing GREAT!  The hospital stay really did it's job. As much as i hated her being there, she was in true need of all the antibiotics they pumped into her lil body.  She is my baby...and I say that with a grin because she will turn 21 in Oct!!! But seeing her on that bed, with a pic line all i could see what my sweet baby girl...ya know?  But she is good and living and enjoying life! and if she is happy, I'm happy.  We still continue to pray everyday for a cure for CF, but for now, I take what God will give me! So please don't drop her from your prayers, her and all the children suffering from this horrible horrible disease!:(
Krystal...well she is crocheting! like a mad women...if you haven't checked out her blog, do so, she is making beanies! lol too cute and perfect for the coming winter season...she is feeling better also. She is still sore from the accident and now under the care of a chiropractor trying to get her back/neck pain under control.  But over all she is good!
I...well...I am STILL trying to adjust to my new schedule at work! OMG, i tell you that morning sun just about burns my skin off! lol ya know, me being a night owl an all!  But I promise I'llbe back folding paper soon! LOVE YOU ALL!!!
