Isn't nature cool? Have you ever seen a prettier "S"?
Oh by the way My first name is Sherri.

So I have not been able to update because I have been very busy making items for 2 Holiday Craft shows being held this weekend. Todays was fantastic! I finally found people who love my vintage look!!!! I am really looking forward to tomorrows.

The second reason is because my attitude has been a bit eradic lately.Is that a word? I can't find the correct spelling here and am to tired to look it up. Sorry. Anyway, my husband has not heard about any of the jobs he has applied for. The good news is they are still posted so not filled yet. Hopefully they are planning on actually hiring the 1st of the year. So anyway that leaves us at the end of the foreclosure journey. The bank bought back our house this past Thursday. We are unsure of how long they will give us to leave so we are beginning the packing and throwing away stuff. I have made the decision to close my portrait studio after 26 years. I have a real peace and freedom in this since I have actually spoken it out loud to my client this past week. The last month has been very hard and I just couldn't talk about any of it but now I am really doing well and looking forward to what God has in store for my husband and myself.

Do you think it could just be shock? LOL

On a really brighter side. My youngest, the one in the homecoming photos, got accepted to Johnson and Wales for culinary arts this fall. She also received a very generous scholarship from them for academic achievement for all 4 years. We had not applied for any help yet. God is SO GOOD! She is excited and knows God is supplying all her needs and He will ours to.

I can't wait to tell you what he has done for us when it happens. For now I am living in excited anticipation.

P.S. Thanks for hanging in there with me. I will try not to be so silent as the time passes and we wait.


  1. My friend, I pray for you that the path is forward & blessings will be showered upon you as your new journey begins. I am sorry you've had to go thru all of this ...

    Have a beautiful Thanksgiving holiday
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  2. In my life, I have found that good things can come out of adversity - I couldn't see it at the time, but I know now that I had to go threw it to get to a better place. I know you are strong enough to see what will come your way in the future and no doubt will be a path that you didn't see or plan.

    I'm happy for your dtr, she has to be thrilled! Maybe we'll see her as the next Iron Chef!

  3. Hey! Thanks for becoming a follower - we have lots in common! What a great thing for your daughter - I've always wondered what it would be like to train as a chef. Re: the hedgehog: my daughter got it as a gift from a friend, but I think you can get them at exotic pet shows as well as looking for breeders on the internet. She really is a great pet!

  4. Indeed - a spectacular "S"! Son in law lost his job about 4 months ago, right about the same time their babysitter had a traumatic experience and moved away to live with her mother. Daughter figures that was the way it's supposed to be for a while. She's in an apt she rented before they got together so they can do it on her salary. Am thankful for that! Wishing for you an amazing journey - things like this are usually the key to something wonderful (been there, done that).
