I think I have Crafters ADD

Hello, my name is Cheryl and I am a craft addict. I think I have Crafter's ADD. I have so many projects that I have started, because I just had to see what the final results would be. But before I could get that project finished - Inspiration struck. And so I started another project.

To my defense, I get interrupted A LOT. Its part of being a mom. I'll just settle down to crochet some longies for my son and someone spilled milk on the floor while they were trying to be "independent". Or I'll be supervising my 4 year old during his bath and a great idea will pop in my head. I'll get started on it that night after everyone is in bed. I get it half finished and I'm about to crawl into bed exhausted and my 15 month old wakes up screaming in the night. While I am rocking him back to sleep - I think of yet another great idea.

And so it goes. I'm not lucky enough to have my own craft room, where I could shut the door and keep my craft projects from curious, "helpful" hands. Some day I will strike it rich and when I do, I'm having a craft room that will be mine, all mine! Ha, ha ha. One that you need a secret access code to enter and maybe it will have to read your thumbprint to make sure you are not a imposer. Hmmm, maybe I have been hanging around my 9 year old too much? LOL.

Velvet Cloaks - The Perfect finishing touch

Or is it the perfect starting point of a costume? Our beautiful floor length penne TK velvet cloaks can create a dramatic effect on any costume! What kind of costume could you create? A witch, or Gothic wear? Or how about Renaissance wear? Snow White or Little Red Riding Hood? Maybe a Fairy Godmother?

Maybe you are planning a winter wedding. You need something that is beautiful to keep the wedding party warm without covering the beautiful dress!

We carry these cloaks in children sizes and adult sizes.

My Son's Surgery

My 4 year old was born with congenital glaucoma. Congenital means it was present at birth. Glaucoma is eye fluid buildup in the eyes. Everyone’s eyes produce fluid. Glaucoma is when the fluid cannot drain properly. And like a balloon that is filled past its capacity, my son’s eye stretched, which in turn stretches the retina in the back of the eye, eventually the strain was too great and the retina collapsed. The retina is the wall in the back of the eye that light bounces off and allows you to see. Without the retina, you are blind. Its like shutting off a light in a dark room. You cannot see anything.
For the last 4 years his vision and glaucoma have been great. Then out of nowhere, boom the other shoe dropped. I noticed my son wasn’t acting himself and his right eye didn’t look quite right. Ihad this nagging feeling something wasn’t right. I took my son to the eye doctor 3 times, The doctors had a hard time getting a good examination of my son, because he just wasn’t being cooperative during the in office exam. Later we knew why, his eye probably hurt and he didn’t want them to touch it. Finally after 3 unsuccessful attempts to get a good eye exam, we decided to do an exam under anesthesia.
My son has a retinal detachment. Currently he cannot see out of his Right eye. He is scheduled to have surgery to try and repair the damaged retina on September 16th. If you pray, please keep my son Logan in your prayers that they surgery is a success and that he will regain his vision in his right eye again.

Silence and a human pincushion

Ah, as much I as I hated getting up at 6 AM this morning to get the kiddos off to school. Once they were on the bus and my 1 year old down for a nap - silence in my house during the daytime for the first time in the last 3 months! Silence didn't last long though, since its only a half day. But tomorrow I'm ready to get a ton of work done on my Milo's Creations website!

Now for the pincushion part. I go to the doctor today for my well child err I mean woman's physical. Sorry thought I was talking about one of my kids for a moment there. I have been bad. I haven't had a physical since 2007 and I think I was punished because of it. I was expecting one needle stick because I need to get a TB test for my part time job. They had the flu shots ready, so figured I might as well get one of those. Then I was asked when I had my last tetanus shot. Um, I dunno. So I get one of those too. And heck while we’re at it, since I didn't get a chance to eat breakfast this morning due to the chaos of getting everyone out the door on their first day - I get my cholesterol checked. Another needle stick. So I'm sporting 4 new puncture wounds. Starting to feel like my babies do when they get their vaccinations.
