Of course every good holiday celebration is accompanied with gifts.  My mom out did herself this year.  She presented me with these two professionally framed pictures.  I drew these images when I was four.  She took the images and embroidered them onto black fabric.  They are just stunning.   I can’t believe how great these turned out.   I just love them.  What an amazing...

Come on Down to Tire World


Posted on Apr 23, 2007

My sister-in-law has more energy than anyone I know.  Her latest project is Tire World.  Her friends had 4 tractor tires that they had no use for, so my sister-in-law jumped at the chance to take them.  It took 3 people to roll each tire down the street to her house.  These are huge tires.  She and her husband made a pit filled with pea gravel for the tires to sit on.  They built ladders and a window to...
