The Holiday Season Is Here! November Winner!

Dollhouse Miniatures
The Holiday Season is here and I cannot believe it!  The week has been very interesting and packed with activities such as meeting new friends, attending fun classes, voting and Holiday Shopping.  My grandson turned 3 since I last posted and I am amazed at what his little brain has recorded in such a short time on earth.  Amazing!  

Are you one of those shoppers whose shopping list is completed in July!  Well, Bless you.  I usually wait until a few days before Christmas.  But, with two grandsons, it is so much fun to start early.  Although I know Christmas is not all about giving gifts, decorations, great food and families coming together,  we celebrate.  We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ along with all the commercial stuff we've celebrated when we didn't really know the real reason.  Was Jesus Christ born on December 25th?  Probably not, but he was born so I think December 25th is a great time to celebrate his birth.  It is one of my favorite times of the year.  I hope you enjoy this wonderful season of Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations.  

Congratulations!  Our November winner, Atamoment, made the following comment: 

 "Hey Felma - Its just amazing to me what you can do with a piece of paper. The dress is simply beautiful. You are so talented and have such a gift. You are an inspiration to us all. Congrats to your daughter and I wish I had half of yours or her energy lol. Count me in on the giveaway. Thanks for all of your help."  

I must say that I am disappointed about a couple of give a ways:  1)  Our August give a way, mailed the last week of August, has not made it to Spain.  If you were the winner, please contact me with new mailing information.  2)  The winner of our October give a way, also in Spain, has not contacted me with mailing information.  

Please, if you were one of those winners and technically cannot return my e-mails, leave a comment on this post and I will not make your mailing information public.  Thank you so much.  

192 followers is a great Blessing for me.  Thank you so much for making my journey to celebrating life easier.  I really look forward to reading your comments.  I think it is the desire to feel connected with friends.  

Prayer Warriors?  This is a sad day for me.  I ask that you pray for my brother whose wife was just diagnosed with terminal cancer.  Please pray that God provides the strength my lovely brother and his family need to prepare for this challenge they are facing.  I also ask that you pray for peace and understanding for all of us as we trek to our final destination.  Thank you.

May God continue to Bless all of you and your family.

Hugs to All.

Marathon! October Winner! November Give A Way!

November Give Away

Hello everyone and thanks to all my followers for leaving comments and reading my blog.  You are the best of the best helping me keep my self- respect! I know my minis are not the best in the world, but, as a cancer survivor, a lovely quote  from Sharon Olds is inspirational:  "Writing or making anything—a poem, a bird feeder, a chocolate cake—has self-respect in it. You're working. You're trying. You're not lying down on the ground, having given up."                                                                               You are my motivation for posting and offering give a ways.   See details below on how to win this fabulous 1 inch scale dress from my Jared Collection.  It is made on a hanger (cannot be worn by doll) from gorgeous paper backed fabric.  How did I create this tiny beauty?  According to Martha Beck's quote below this is how:  
"In the moments I get it right, every step I take seems to be matched by a universal mystery, which obligingly, incredibly, creates what I can't."      

Favorite Daughter & Hubby
My favorite daughter never gave up as she finished her very first half marathon (13.1 miles)!  The same marathon I was training for two years ago and never finished due to health issues.  October being National Breast Cancer Month, I know she crossed that finish line for me and a ton of survivors, grinning like she had found a healthy cure for the whole world to be the best it can be and especially for hubby and their boys.

"Act as a master of your life by putting your health, well-being and happiness first."  Marianna Olszewski

October Is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

My "girls" are doing fine this October!
Have you scheduled your appointment yet?  Thank God for my October results:

 "We are pleased to inform you that there is no evidence of breast cancer on your recent Mammogram and/or Ultrasound." 

For 12 years after surgery to remove the cancer, I've  done some serious praying to God to let me get through another year without evidence in my "girls". Therefore, I say to you,  get tested and:
                                  "Pray continually."

An example of one of our most recent fun events;  This past Friday, 3:00PM Pacific Daylight Savings Time,  my two year old selected the August winner from the hat as my five year old beat the drum for the drum roll.  Our give away dress was sitting on the table next to the hat and we were all excited to see who the winner would be.  As I slowly opened the folded piece of paper with the winning comment, my heart was throbbing and they were shouting, "Who Grandma! Who won?"  My goodness, I didn't know giving could be so wonderful and exciting with my two little love birds jumping up and down along side me.

Tom Bishop International Show 2013! Chicago Here I Come!

Brinca Dada -Emerson A Modern Mini House
After my doctor's appointment yesterday morning I was disappointed and feeling down in the dumps.  My family,  friends and enemies too had prayed for a miracle that God would reveal to the doctor a fix for my shoulder.  Instead, after reviewing my MRI and showing me the damage, he said,  "The rotator cuff is torn beyond repair.  Even if you were normal and didn't have lymphedema,  surgery would only be a 50/50 option for this kind of tear."  

So, there went my option for restoration and while down in the dumps of despair, suddenly I remembered something from the Holy Bible: "And one thing more: Prepare a guest room for me, because I hope to be restored to you in answer to your prayers." Philemon 1:22 NIV and quickly I started climbing to higher ground humming a song my mother used to sing that includes these words, He may not come when you want him, but He is always right on time.  

God is an awesome God!  Our prayers are always answered although we may not know it.  Therefore prepare a guest room for me because I will keep hope alive! Thank you to all of you who prayed for me.

Gift of goodies I received Today!
Today has been one of the best days of my life.  I received in the mail the dollhouse goodies in the picture to the right.  A very nice lady I met at the Tom Bishop Chicago International Show sent them to me.  And tomorrow the Mini Modern Brinca Dada Emerson house will be delivered to my home.  Yep, the same nice lady.  Pictures will be posted. 

My plan is to furnish the house as a very unusual and interesting Bridal Shop in black, white and silver, so she also sent the gorgeous hand turned vase which stands 1 1/2 inches tall.   Made from precious wood.  The delicate wooden piece at the top is removable.  Awesome!

This is the best time for me to tell you that I feel another give away coming your way because of you!  I want to thank you for following my blog and leaving those wonderful comments. 

Please don't forget that this 
Saturday is the day of the drawing for the very unique dress to the right.

 Is your name on the list of followers of my blog and your comment has been posted on the post for this give away?  Great! Your comment will be put in the hat for the drawing!

If not, please read the instructions from my last post to enter.  
Good luck to all!

YES! THAT'S MY MOM!!! My Mother's Day Story!

Favorite Daughter
 "Yes!  That's My Mom!"  My favorite daughter yelled!  She was in a meeting in her office when someone excitedly rushed into her office and asked if she knew anyone named Felma.  And said it was an emergency because a Flight Attendant had found my wallet on the plane I had just taken to Chicago and needed to speak to my daughter.  My daughter was telling me this exciting story over the phone, but all I hear was, "Yes!  That's my Mom!"  My daughter mostly refers to me as "my Mom" and calls me Mom and sometimes, Mother! expressing a drawn out motherrrr!  when she is trying to prove a point and then she calls me Felma! when she knows that I am refusing to get the point.

"Yes! That's my Mom!" hit a spot in my heart and sent my soul rocking.  I thought that I was immune to the feeling I felt at that moment and the feeling of love I feel each day including now as I write my Mother's Day story.  Immune because I talk to her almost every day and when she calls me she will usually say, "Hey Mom."  Maybe it's because I'm so happy being a Grandma that I can't see the forest for the trees.

About 40 years ago my own mother was killed in a car accident, along with my stepfather when they were hit in a head-on collision by a driver who was classified as drunk.  I still miss my Mother.  I am so happy that my daughter doesn't have to miss me.   I am happier that I don't have to miss my daughter.  I am so proud of her.

My favorite and only daughter, the mother of my two grandsons is a Mother now!  WOW!  She is also the wife of my favorite son-in-law.  Who knew that I would feel so emotional over those words?!!  Especially since her two sons have taken up so much love in my heart.  It just proves that our hearts can expand with the love we have for one another.  My daughter will always be my favorite daughter and I love her today as I have always loved her more than myself.  She has always been a great Blessing to me. 

She helped save my life lots of times through her prayers and her diligent watch over me especially during times when doctors told me that I was lucky to be alive.  Doctors couldn't understand the happiness I felt lying there in the hospital bed with one leg propped up in the air, one arm propped in the air, on bed rest with an IV dripping poison into my veins to help dissolve the blood clots that were having a party in my leg and lungs.  Partying their way to my heart and brain.  They didn't make it!  When my daughter entered my hospital room a couple of hours later (my husband went yo tell her and drive her to the hospital),  I asked her,  "What time did ya'll pray?"  It was the exact time I actually felt death leave my body.   She had also called her prayer group to put in motion the Prayer Chain which included a faithful group of people. 

There are many morals to this story and I hope one of them will touch your heart.  Whether dead, lost or alive,  we all have mothers somewhere, someplace.  Please honor your MOTHER as I did this Mother's Day weekend.

Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.  Genesis 3:20 NIV

May God continue to
Bless you favorite daughter and your wonderful family.  One day your boys will say, "Yes, that's my Mom!" And you will be so very proud.

Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms reading my story.

Thanks again to all of you reading my blog and sending those lovely comments.  

I just drew the comment of the lucky winner from the hat at 11:00 PM Pacific Daylight Savings time.  The lucky winner will be announced on Tuesday, May15, 2012.
