Thank-you, thank-you!





























SOLD>>>>>>>SOLD
















SOLD>>>>>SOLD



















I appreciate the many prayers and lifting up of spirit! I read each and every comment. Thank-you so much. I wanted to share one of my first Christmas boxes. I am putting this up for sale. If anyone is interested just email me cjubilee@q.com 21.00 plus shipping. I may put a few on etsy..not sure. There is stitching , flocked snow, and red glitter on the box...vintage style papers and a vintage bird ornament. I made a tag that says Merry and aged it. Also I made a shabby style Mama/baby bird ensemble....could be used for an ornament or hung from a knob. They have glittered wings and hang from old ribbons. Mama bird has a little sign that says...believe. 10.00 plus shipping.



I wanted to show a small portion of Hunter's party. I got the idea for the cupcakes from Miss. Rachel http://eoberrys.blogspot.com/. I asked each party goer to write something about Hunter and displayed the silly pic of him on the table. They all got a big kick out of the silly pics of Hunter...especially Hunter. I will be back soon with a few small projects I want to share. xoxo, cherry

I just read the last post about what has been going on with you and just want to say I'm so sorry and hope things are looking up. I know the heartache of losing a beloved cat. It has been probably 10 years now since he died and I am tearing up as I type this. I'll pray for you because I know it will be hard for a long time.

Deb said...

So sorry about your loss, what has you down in the dumps and just the overall yuckiness. Big hugs and prayers going out to you.

Cherry,your box is beautiful! I have some from last year (from Gordmans I think) and I would like to add some flocking. What do you use? I've tried elmer's and salt but I'm not sure if that would be "sturdy" enough. You are such a talent. It looks like your son had a great party! Smiles, Paula

Jean said...

Cherry, so glad you are back but so sorry about all that has been going on. It breaks your heart when you have to put a dear pet asleep. We had to do it and even though its been over three years I still miss my baby. I think things will pick up again and hopefully your hubby will be back at work soon. Your thanksgiving decorations are great and your creativity has produced some really cute things. You keep your chin up and things Will get better, and no that you are in the thoughts and prayers of friends.

Empty Nest Full Life said...

I had been wondering where you were. You and your family will surely be in my prayers. Your creativity is still awesome. I wish you would tell how you put the blessings banner together. So tasteful. We get so attached to our pets and I can't imagine having one that long, and then they are gone. I too have been feeling so blessed and truly desiring to be thankful for all we have. Family,friends, home and most importantly a relationship with the Lord. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jackie
