Congratulations To The Winner!

Set of luggage I made. Inspired by grandson.
These long gaps between my postings are driving me nuts! 
Every time I post I say I am going to post again real soon and I just seem to get so caught up in so much stuff time has already passed before I know it. Please hang in here with me to see if I will do better as my life gains some structure back.

 My dear friends most of you know that I had part of my brain removed in November, although just a small piece according to my very handsome doctor. My miniatures are still my favorite hobby, but finishing my book is also time consuming.. And my favorite daughter is taking me on a short cruise this month. WOW! That sounds fantastic.
I know I said I would post after the winner contacts me but I need the winner to identify that the following comment is hers/his and contact me with mailing information.

The following comment was very beautiful and I did my best to translate 
to English:

"Cuenta conmigo para participar en tu celebración de la vida.
Juntas oremos para que tu recuperación sea completa.
Y me encantaría probar suerte en el sorteo de esa maravilla de vestido que antes era precioso y con los cambios aún lo es más".

 "Count with me to participate in your celebration of her life.
Together pray that your recovery is complete.
And I would love to try their luck in the draw of this wonder of dress that was once beautiful and with the changes still is more."

Once again I enjoyed this draw and will do my very best to give away something else soon because I have a lot I want share with you as I get ready to move on to my next Chapter in life.

Thank you so much for being my friends and participating in my Give Aways!

Prayers, Hugs and Love,
Felma

BE STRONG! FIND YOUR STRENGTH AND PUSH HARD TO MAINTAIN IT!

Free Dress And Purse To A Lucky Winner!

Dress and Purse Give Away
Hello again!  Blogging is wonderful for me because I can be in touch with family and friends all over the world. 

Last night I had this great idea and followed through with it.  I added some more features to the unclaimed November dress give away such as necklace, trim and purse. And now I will name them the February Give Away.  It really boggles my mind about be strong and never give up because it works so easily!

Please enter to win by leaving a motivating comment on this Post only  and be a follower of this Blog before the closing date on Friday, February 24, 2017 at 6:pm PST.  Your comment will be put in a lucky hat and one winner will be drawn by one of my grandsons. Winner will be posted when prize is claimed. Thank you much and Good Luck!

Yes, I still love motivating comments that thrill me as I grow stronger during my Celebration of Life Journey. I love making dresses and giving them away. And yes, I miss him.  I can almost hear his very lovely deep voice say, "That's the best looking dress you've ever made." Although this is a beautiful dress, he made that statement about every dress I made.  I am really Laughing Out Loud now.  I should've recorded that statement.

Just before I began posting tonight, this is what I read by accident and it encourages me and maybe you, to:

 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” Deuteronomy 31:6 (NIV)

Hugs, Prayers and Love to All

Turn To God And Be Strong! Really?

NOT A GIVEAWAY YET!
Hello my friends. I don't know what happened to the winner of the last dress. I was never contacted.  What shall I do?

I have been away from my blog having brain surgery to patch a hole on my creative side.  Oh Oh!  Everyone encourages me, "Turn to God and stay strong! Anyone know what that means? As I wait for my brain to heal I am stressed to have a lung biopsy to rule out cancer. I've been cancer free for 17 years. What is going on! Stay strong!

Now, the problems started after my husband passed away. Is he trying to get me to come where he is? We loved one another so much.  Sometimes I really want to go  to him, but I also want to see my grandsons grow up to be good citizens. First, my ear drum burst! Then a really bad car accident where another driver lost control of his car and blasted my car. Therapy TAKES forever.

  But, really? Sometimes I do question my efforts to be strong. Some days I feel like life is turning against me on this Celebration of Life Journey.

So, I am trying to be strong and continue on my Journey.  Saturday I went to the Southern California Tom Bishop Show!  Had a great time.  Miniatures are the very best hobby. There were so many gorgeous miniatures on display. I came home and made a dress. And I would like for you to compare my dress after surgery to the one above before surgery. I will post it soon.

Hope all of you are having a happy New Year!  May all your resolutions be filled.

 My health and death issues only mean that anything is possible  and hopefully my Journey will encourage other to be strong. Through all my pain and the everyday challenges of life I am still looking forward to what tomorrow has in store for me and for you.

Thanks for being my mini friends. Don't forget to tell me what to do with the last give away dress that wasn't claimed. Does anyone want the dress? Please leave a comment on this post and I will pull names again. I added a few things to the dress and it looks more beautiful than before.

Hugs to all of you! Stay strong! Make some minis!
