We had an enjoyable weekend with lots of celebrating! Father’s Day with hubby able to celebrate with his children.
Our oldest daughter Lizabeth hosted an amazing shower for her expecting sister Amber this weekend as well. She did such a great job with all of the details, every thing looked so nice. I have been a little preoccupied this past week or so and I felt bad that I wasn’t able to much help. She had asked to use my some of my Ball jars for glasses as well as my Ball Jar water cooler that I had found quite a while back.
I was trying to see how the glasses would fill and I was not very happy with the way the glass jar would need to be on the edge of the counter. So as I usually do ~ I get these wonderful design ideas and need a little help pulling them together. As most of you read in my last post the my hubby Craig is still recovering from a heart attack and having stents put in, so he wasn’t able to help me much with my “idea”. We do have my nephew here helping us and so with the three of us we pulled together MY DESIGN.
I am getting pretty good at using my band saw, although I prefer hubbies work as he is so much better. So any way this pic below is the design that I came up with, it was a joint effort between the three of us.
Hubby is getting so ancy and hates to sit still for any length of time. He is mostly supervising now. So I have these for sale in my etsy shoppe if anyone is interested. Sadly I can see that MY IDEA has already been copied. If you are a designer/ artisan that designs your own patterns and creation you know how long it takes to bring something to fruition with all of the tweaking and wasted material. I guess that is what happens with the internet, everyone thinks that since the picture is out there it is fair game to “use”. I know that everyone gets ideas from others and sharing goes on all of the time, but to come out and say that you took their picture to copy?! Idk maybe it’s me and all of the emotional crap we are going through. Life gets tough sometimes.
Craig is out of work til the Dr gives the ok to go back. I am not sure if he will be able to do the job he was doing. I am trying to keep things pulled together and selling what I am able to do myself. I have updated my etsy shoppe with a few new items and I also have a new selling site on ~Facebook ~ if you are in “need” of anything. Thanks for looking.
A few more pics of the shower. Amber had her 34 week check up today and is doing fine and right on schedule.
Her first two pregnancies were cut short with unexpected early deliveries. Our first granddaughter was born too early and we were all the way across the country and didn’t get to see her for 2 weeks after she was born. With her second child we were in California but 3 1/2 hours north of them and he was born as we were in the midst of our travels. Sooo now we live in the same town and will be able to take the two older ones when she goes into labor.
I would appreciate your prayers for safe delivery for mother and child.
Thank you all so much for taking this journey through life with me. I truly appreciate all of the prayers, friendship and concern from all of you. Blessings~Sara
