I really haven't had too much to say so therefore have not felt like blogging to much. My grandmother was in town this past week so I wanted to spend as much time with her as I could. She had gotten some bad news about her best friend's health and was feeling a little down so I went to pick her up and bring her here for a visit. We had a great time, the girls love her so much. I am *so very thankful* that she is such a big part of our lives. I am the oldest of her grandchildren and the one that lives the closest. She is just the best, it is hard for me to watch her grow old, most of my childhood memories are of her and my grandfather. They were always around growing up and when school was out in the summer I was at their house. It is truly a blessing to have her be a part of my girls lives. I so wish my grandfather was still with us, that is the one thing that I wish for my girls, is that they could have met him. He was so amazing. I miss him terribly. I am not sure why I am going into all of this, maybe because after spending time with Mama Nita this last week I started to reflect on how lucky I am to have her around. I have always felt lucky having her part of my life, but after watching her with the girls it just makes me even more grateful for the time we have with her. Even when you are 35 years old, it is still cool to say "my grandmother is coming for a visit" :) . It is even more awesome that she is now hanging out with my children.

I plan to be at my desk or not too far from it at my embroidery machine this week, during Mallory's naps and on MDO days. My *creative mojo* was lacking the last couple of weeks, but I woke up inspired today. Maybe it was the fresh air in the house from having had the windows open during the night who knows. I just know that I have not felt like sitting down to create in a couple of weeks, I guess there has been to much else to do, just life. I plan to post more this week and I am also working out the details of a new giveaway so stay tuned...

I completely understand about not feeling like sitting down and creating. I feel like I definitly have my dry spells! And I am also so blessed to have my grandmother around to enjoy my daughter. We are very lucky:) I'm glad I found your blog, I'll have to add it to my favs!
