Your comment here will be lovely and I enjoy the heck out of them, but it will not count. It will only count on Theresa's blog.


Did I tell you I have an Etsy store?
I am still working on things and trying to get everything in order. If you have any questions, just let me know.
I have to do something with my creations or my husband is going to kick me out!

This is why I have been so absent, well that, and a gall bladder attack, Madi getting sick, depression, fear, doing my web pages, and just life in general.


  1. Sorry to hear you have been having a difficult time - but great news about the Etsy store! Hope to see more of your creations soon!

  2. Marie,

    I just wanted to let you know I've been thinking about you lately.

    You asked for "words of wisdom." According to my grandfather, "Tough times don't last, tough people do." I secretly think you have the capability of being a "tough ol' broad" when pushed too far. Don't let anyone push you around. I'll bring the sugar if you supply the lemons and we will have some butt-kicking lemonade.

    Big Hugs,

    Pam Jensen aka Mousefingers

  3. ah, so soon i will visit your etsy page and look around with deligtht! good for you, marie.

    later, aligator. :)

  4. That Stinkin' Gall Bladder. Why in the heck to we have it anyway. I suffer, want to die, take me to the ER, it passes, Ok I'm OK now, nope, no hospital. Until the next attack. Phew! Sorry you suffer too.

    BUT, yay, I been waiting for your shop. I was over their this morning. God I love your work.
    Congrats on the shop, take care with the rest..don't be depressed. Good things are happening for you!!

    xx, Carol

  8. Marie, your gift arrived to day and it is even better than I had hoped! It is so packed with detail in this little piece, I am amazed that it is so small, I'd expect it to be as big as my hand although I knew it wasn't. You are very gifted. Thank you so much, I want to do something for you someday. I hope you are having a good day.

  9. You will have much success on Etsy! Sure hope that you get to feeling better, gall bladder issues are no fun. Wishing you well soon!

  30. Wow! What great teamwork. Simply beautiful!

  31. Marie dear, how are you? I had my gallbladder removed ten years ago! I thought I would die from the colic - very scary. Take care. I hope you are getting better.

  32. Hi I have missed you so much. I hope you are well. I have to go over and sign up for this give away. I just checked out your new shop. It is awesome.
    I am off to take pain meds and go to bed.

  33. Hi Marie you may or may not know that I too hadnt been around for awhile since early April . I was so sorry to hear about your Gall bladder trouble.
    Please Marie get the darn thing out. I was exactly like you til I had it out in June 2003 ( My DH died in July 03 so you may see what a year that was for me, as he went into hos as I came out.
    Anyway I have never looked back since I had it out.
    You can do without it, so stop putting yourself thru all that dreadful pain.I dont know whether you did get it out yet?
    It is a keyhole op here and you recover quite well after.I had to recover and have my DH in the Hosp dying at that time.
    I think that is why I am so resilient now.
    Nothing phazes me as you may know.
    I havent been on my blog as I said and that has been because I had Cateracts taken off both eyes. and Wahoo! that is all over, I have the best peepers now. I thought I could see before, but this is amazing, and I have lost the distance glasses too, so LIFE'S GOOD!
    Ok see you soon, and Congrats about your Etsy you have such a lot of great stuff. I hope you do well
    Do the L's Good thing Marie XXXX
