Son leaves soon!

Have you ever just felt blah & not sure why? That's how I have been feeling lately. I wish I didn't feel this way but I do. I need to snap out of this funk! I guess I'm alittle blue because my son leaves Sunday for Korea. He will be gone for 1 year, he is supposed to get to come home for a visit after 6 months, but the military is not always true to its word. I hate that he is leaving because he will be a Daddy in December (10th). I'm so excited about the baby, can't hardly wait to see if its a boy or a girl. We will take either one. But I hate that Corey (my son) will miss out on so much while he is gone. He will miss most of the pregnancy, possibly the birth, 2am feedings, diaper changes, 1st time to turn over, 1st smile, 1st tooth, 1st everything. Please just keep them in your prayers. I know it will be hard on Griffin too without Corey.

Corey (my son) & his wife Griffin are driving from Goldsboro NC to Wichita Falls Tx. They left Goldsboro last night & they are in Arkansas tonight. They should arrive in Wichita Falls sometime tomorrow. We are driving to Wichita Falls on friday to go spend a little time with him before he leaves. Plus they are going to look for a house to rent this weekend, so that will be fun to help them find a place. Below is a photo of Corey & Griffin, aren't they cute? I just know that they will have a beautiful baby!


I am donating one of the runner up prizes for the pink artist giveaway. So I will go ahead & show you what I will be giving away. You can go to the pink button on the left hand side bar & learn all about it. It starts Aug 1st & goes to Oct 15. I am giving away one of my purses. I designed this purse to be a breast cancer awareness purse, and of course I used a fabric transfer of "Lucy" on the front. I love this purse, it turned out so cute. What do you think?



I would like to say thank you to all of you that continually leave me comments. Your words are so kind and supportive. I appreciate each one of you. You all mean a great deal to me. I feel like I know you each personally. Hugs to you all ***Renea

Don't be blah my sweet and precious friend. I thought you seemed like that yesterday, and I know it is not because I spilled an entire glass of tea on your beautiful coffee table. Right? Heehee-I really do think you need your alone time like you were talking about. You need time to relax, create and muse. I love you.

Your son and his wife are a beautiful couple and I know that baby will be just as beautiful. Good luck to both of them and my prayers are with BOTH of them. They both will need them in different ways. I'll check in with you later.

Understandably you feel in a funk, I adore my daughter and son in law....it would be devastating to have either of them away for too long!They are an adorable and you're right I'm sure an adorable baby will be the result!

Your purse is truly gorgeous! A splendid art piece. I'd want to cherish it and only use it on special occasions, but then I'd also want to show it off!! Good job!

Hugs Giggles

Oh, Renea...I haven't visited for a while and have missed news. Congratulations on the new grandbaby that is expected. I can't imagine how difficult it was to say goodbye to your son. Thanks for sharing picture of the lovely pair. The pink purse you created is absolutely beautiful...you have such a unique style and I'm hoping that one of these will adorn my shoulder in the near future. Big hugs!
