She is a Lollishop vendor and makes the cutest shadow boxes and paper art!!!! I just love it! We have it on our mantel with our topiary tree that we decorate for every holiday. (Next it will have hearts all over it...LOL)
This and our Joy tree were the only things we decorated this year. We are remodeling and between that and the changes in our mom's behavior, we did not do much. Any significant change affects our mom right now....Here is our little Joy Tree...I just love these ornaments!
That's our glitter church village with our praising snowman! Aren't they adorable??? We (my sister and I) have an enormous snowman collection that we add to every year. Our praising snowman was added this year as well as the vintage one with the top hat and candy cane on the mantel. Do you have a favorite at Christmas that you collect every year? What are they? Share some pictures....

Isn't it amazing how attached we can become to our pets? I never thought I would survive losing her, but I have, after two years....I still miss her and have her little face on my cell phone.

On another note, we celebrated birthdays for our niece (Angie) who is 24, and our nephew (Justin) who is 29 and their father (Jerry) who is.....older than me...LOL! I cannot believe how old they are! OMG! I feel so old....We are noticing that it is becoming harder and harder to take our mom places. She gets real spacey and then belligerent when we try to get her to do anything. PLease pray that God gives us the strength and wisdom to deal with her at this stage. It is a struggle!
I wanted to mention that Lollishops will be opening before the holidays so be sure and check it out. I will post more info on it later in the week. I am gearing up for Christmas on my website and will be listing some new items and return items. SO please, check my website or here for announcements.
I will leave you with this ... "Be beautiful inside, in your hearts, with the lasting charm of a gentle and quiet spirit whic is precious to God." 1 Peter 3:4
Good night and God Bless you! Becs

Let's see....I live with my 82 year old mother who, bless her heart, has Alzheimer's Disease and it is in a moderate stage. Also living here is my sister, Belinda (10 years older...HA HA) and her husband, Rick. Poor guy living with all these women! Belinda and Rick and I share in the care of my mother. I have had to depend on Rick and Belinda financially for the last few years. And our mom has come to depend on financial and physical care as well. So, you can imagine 4 adults under one roof! Add a 13 year old cranky female Chow Chow (Cita) and a huge young male Kelpie Shephard (Kody) in the house too! It is always interesting here, that's for sure!
I work part-time as an adjunct instructor for College of the Sequoias in the Criminal Justice Department. I teach 2 -3 classes a semester. I enjoy it. I also teach in the Police Academy, so it keeps me busy. My sister and Brother - in - law both work full time, so when I work also, we take my mom to a day care in town that is designed for Alzheimer patients. They are wonderful there. What is so frustrating is that there is no freedom at this time in our lives. It is very difficult to deal with. It's like having a GIANT toddler.
Ok, some more about me. I am spending most of my time right now working on journals and sets for our women's retreat at the end of October. Journals for 200-400 women!!! Let's see, we made life sized sheep out of PVC Pipe and fleece and chicken wire and Palm trees out of carpet tubes and mesh wrap. LOL! I will show pictures of the finished products! Needless to say, it is a zoo here right now!
I wanted to comment on some new ventures with my website, Rebecca Rose Designs...I have been a member of Shabby Lane Shops for several months now and Catherine has just done an outstanding job!
I have also joined a new advertising venue called Shopping4home decor. It is another amazing one stop shopping center for online shoppers!
And the last venture, which borught me to this blogging adventure, is Lollishops, a great shopping alternative that will be opening soon!
For now, I will sign off so I can put some thought together for next time! God Bless each and everyone of you!
