Stopping by....

Just stopping in to post a great big "HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND" to all my blogging (and not blogging) friends! Also to all my farmgirl friends at MJF!!!

This weekend will be busy for me, so I doubt that I will be posting. Tomorrow is get the pool ready to open day, and Sunday is the memorial service for my grandson :( Don't worry, I will be ok. I have the support of all my family and my farmgirl friends. Couldn't ask for anything more :)

I hope everyone has a beautiful, sunny weekend. Go out and spend some quality time with your family and friends. Hug your kids and your spouse too. Don't ever forget to tell the ones you love that you do love them. You never know what tomorrow brings......

That said, I am off of here and I will be back to my picture posting, crafty self next week. So look out y'all.....I'm sure I'll think of something to put on here :p ...HEE HEE!

I was just reading a post on MJF about someone who got had on the bartering thing. That hits close to home with me.

Now, don't get me wrong - I love a good barter and it is fun, but there are those times when I get had by the person that I barter with. It's happened 2 or 3 times so far and it's frustrating!! Grrrr.

Listen - If you want to barter, then make sure you can hold up to your end of the deal. Now I'm not going to mention any names since you already know who you are, but I'm still waiting on a barter from last October!! I guess I can kiss that goodbye. This person is still bartering with others and so are the ones that still owe me from 3 months ago! Ughhhh. :(

I do, however, have a few ladies that I barter with who are golden. Tribalcime (Lisa) is one of them. She is the sweetest person and makes sure that she sends her stuff out asap and everything she barters is awesome!

Now, I know that postage is high and so is the price of gas. PLEASE THINK ABOUT THAT BEFORE YOU AGREE TO A BARTER!!!!!

I don't think that I will be bartering for awhile except with the few that I trust. It's sad that in a day where we all need each other and where a helping hand is always welcome, that there are still people out there who want to make it difficult.

Lisa, Denise, Deb, Linda, and others, you are terrific!!! All the rest who fall short, well all I can say is please stop bartering and because it makes the other person sad :(

Anywho, vent is over now. Just had to get that off of my chest!

Hopefully the next post will be more pleasant!! HA!

Back in the Burbs...

Well, I'm back from my campin' trip and it wasn't long enough for me. I had fun and so did the hubby and kids. It did give me some time to clear my head and I definitely needed that! I did manage to crochet a few washcloths on the way to the campground (hubby laughs at me, but I get bored in the passenger seat!)

We traveled down to Ocean City and rode along Ocean Gateway and took in all the classic cars that were down there for cruisin' weekend Saturday night. Charlie is a big gearhead so he was in heaven! Sunday, we drove to Assateague Island and let the kids see the wild horses as well as had lunch and tried our hand at fishing in the campground pond. It rained Sunday afternoon so fishing was cut short and we all went back to the camper to stay dry. Charlie bought Noah and Ally new bikes the day before our trip so they were really surprised Saturday morning when Dad opened the garage and two brand new bikes were in there!

Monday, we took the kids to the Salisbury Zoo. I think I had more fun than the kids! lol Admission there is free and you can donate a few dollars at the gate to help feed the animals. It was a beautiful day for a Zoo trip and of course the littleo nes hit us up for something at the gift shop!

Anywho - I'm gonna post some pics of my weekend for everyone: I hope you all had a great weekend too!

Take Care and Happy Crafting!

Been Gone Awhile

Sorry I haven't put any new posts on for awhile. Things have been really hectic here in the burbs. I'll spare everyone the whole story, but lets just say that it's been one thing after another. I haven't had much time for crafting either. Hubby and I even canceled a camping trip for Mother's Day weekend because of everything going on. If you check out MaryJane's Farm on occasion, you will get a feel for what's up in my world right now.

On a lighter note, we are going camping this weekend, so maybe I can relax for a few days. Believe me, I NEED IT!!!!!! I'll take some pics and post on here when I get back. We're going to Fort Whaley down near Ocean City, MD on Saturday, Sunday and coming home on Monday. I wish it could be for a week because I could use all that time to clear my head and get away from it all.

Anywho, I'm going to go and start my camping list. I hope everyone has a wonderful, sunny weekend and I'll post again when I return.......

Take care and Happy Crafting!!!

Week 5 "Farmgirl Blog a Thon!"

I know I am a little late on getting this on here, but better late than never, right??

The theme is "Getting Crafty". This one suits me to a tee!!! I am a crafty farm girl

Ok, so what have I made lately? Hmmm - I did crochet and bead a dragonfly (pics will follow) and I finished my Farmgirl Sisterhood badge!

I have also crocheted some washcloths for my mom as well as a little change purse (no pics :( )

Now I am working on a pair of sparkly white crocheted socks for my granddaughter's baptism. They are turning out nice and I will have a pic of them when their done!

So that is what I have been up to lately in my semi-sane crafty

So I will end this by saying -
