Peg Looms Are Coming!

Hello! It has been a while! But I have been busy...making plans, (changing plans..), creating things, (changing things), pretty much just busy!! And to top it all off, we are in the process of remodeling (Halleluja!!).....right now, we are doing the bathroom (THANK YOU, Craig!! It is unbelievably great having a brother who can and will do a remodel job)!

And, while all of this has been going on, I have been busy with the site, though you won't see much of a change for a bit...I have been deciding how I want to re-vamp the site, and that is something that has been keeping my mind whirling about!

One awesome item that we are adding is: PEG LOOMS! I have searched and searched for these, and the only places that I can find to order from are in England...which I really didn't want to do!

Now these looms are not the Knitting Peg Looms, or the ones that you used to make pot holders as a kid....but the looms that you use to weave rugs and wall hangings. And I have wanted one forever!!! (okay...maybe a couple of months...but sometimes I am like a little child, and a little while can seem like FOREVER!). And Craig, after listening to my whine......(okay, WHINE), about not being able to find one, said "Send me the directions, and I will make one....then after talking to him again, and pointing out that I was not the only one in the country looking for these, he is going to make them, and sell them!! I simply cannot wait!!! So, if you have ever wanted to make a rag rug.....well, check the site!! I should have them listed this next week!!!

Other than that, not much has gone on here. The weather has been awful...just like the rest of the country, though yesterday was absolutely gorgeous!! And, my baby....(taking some poetic license here...), Jamie turned 33 yesterday!!! I cannot believe it. How that happened I have no idea..at the rate he is aging, he will pass me up before too long! Here he is with Alex and her PawPaw Max, when we were last back there!



Now, his wasn't the only birthday this month...nope, Jordan turned 7! I cannot believe that either!!


And Lauren turned 5 on March 31st! She shares that day with her Grandpa Max!



Deanna, turned....well, I won't say...but her birthday was on March 30th....


And Dad turned.....well, he had a birthday too in March!
Well, I guess I had better close this for now...I have masses of "blog catching up" to do!

Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
