Memories

My brother was a brat, no use denying that!
Brother was a friend, will be buddies to the end!

Jerry Alan Douglas June 25, 1946to November 9, 2020

My brother went to be with the Lord!  I’m going to miss him very much. His life was complicated. He never really had a lot in life. But he had a heart. I hate that the Covid regulations made it so that I have not seen him in over 10 minutes. To me that’s heartbreaking. He had a very rare disease called Corte basil degenerative disease. I will cherish our memories

DIY day!,

Time to get started on all our DIY gal pal gifts.  Fund day making these fun DIY beauty products. All our ideas came from Hallmarks Home and Family    We both love this show and Kym Douglas is our favorite presenter.  We started out with her lip shimmer. We were afraid after mixing, that it was too dark but it is perfect!  And really lasts and moistures the lips!  Next up was our Lump of Coal face scrub.  I made these last year and they make your face feel so smooth and soft after using!  The natural honey face wash was very simple to make and it turned out wonderful! And last but not least we made clothing Ginger hand and foot polish. It smells so good we’re both very anxious to try it and to gift it!  These gifts will be nestled into colored paper shreds of red and green in a fun craft box that will tie with Christmas twine and decorate with sprigs of Christmas holly or pine. Mine will have twine angels on them that I am making. And I got the idea from Paige Hemmis on the home and family program also.

Popsicle Bird Houses


Had fun with two visiting granddaughters last week.  One craft we chose was to make lollipop birdhouses. No instructions, just our imagination!  I think the girls did a wonderful job.
