Busy week, Samanthas shower and dollmaking

What a busy week it has been, We had Samantha's Bridal shower on Sunday. I helped her Maid of honor arrange it. We had it at the Country club. She had a great time, a lot of family and friends showed up. A relative on the groom's side, made the cake for her. As you can see, her colors are hot pink and black. It was yummy

All of her Bridemaids were there, I still have to get some pictures downloaded. Most of food was brought by the groom's family. Samantha asked me to make deviled eggs for the shower. She loves my eggs. I met some more of her future in-laws. Everyone seemed to have a good time.

The picture below is a picture of my "moms". These 2 ladies are very special to me. Kind of like second mom's to me. Rose and Midge. I have known Midge since I was a little baby and Rose was a dear friend of my parents. Times like this is when I really miss my mom, she is not here to see her granddaughter get married, and really miss her presence.

This is Samantha with 3 of her bridesmaids, I still have to download the picture of the whole group.

My Friend Linda showed up early and helped get everything set up. She is a great lady. Been friends for many years.

I was able to get a little crafting done this week, I finished up some more journals.

I am working on a herd of reindeer. I added reins made from jute this year to them. Pattern on the side bar if interested for a special price of $4.00.

This guys are from my Hank the Scarecrow pattern. I managed to get five of these made. I love blue plaid flannel as you can probably tell. I am putting the pattern on the sidebar for a special price of $4.00 this week if you are interested.

I finished 2 of these big Christmas Annie doll's from Homespun Hugs and Calico kisses. She is a big girl. I love these.

I found another little body hiding in my craft room, put some clothes on her and added a little bear. I think I only have a couple of Santa bodies left, till I finish my pile of uncompleted projects.

I had to pull everything out of the trailer this past weekend, got everything tagged. Luckily I have little more done than I thought I did. Samantha is going to borrow my trailer, she has her first show this coming weekend at the Morocco Temple in Jacksonville, Fl. So if you are in the area, stop by and say hi.

This is going to be a stressful week for me. I go on Wednesday for my pet scan, get the results back on Monday. So please keep me in prayers this week for good results. Going to be a long weekend. I am helping Samantha set up on Friday afternoon, then sitting with her at the show on Saturday. So hoping this will be a good show for her.
