Yesterday after I ran a few errands I did a little scraping . It felt nice to get my stuff out and just sit down and create. I love the way my mind lets every thing go when I am working on a LO. I kinda forgot how cold it was yesterday. Kinda until I had to go to YW with the girls last night. it was 13 below zero. Not fun...
Can you believe it will be February tomorrow Wow I cant believe it!!
So I thought i would do a fun count down to valentines day I am going to post a craft or a recipe on my blog related to valentines day until the 14th.
I just love valentines day!! Can anyone guess why? ;0)

I have had about as much of the snow and ice and cold that I can take...
I have cabin fever and I just want to get out of this house but when ever I go out it is so dang cold. I miss wearing my peep toed shoes.
On top of it being so dang cold I had the flu yesterday and was totally wiped out.
I feel better today and I need to go run some errands but It is so cold today I don't want to leave the house. It was -4 this morning when I took the girls to school. I really need a break from Alaska. I need to go back to the real world and get my fix of shopping and a little warmer weather. I just don't know if it is going to happen this year. Anyone have any sky miles they want to give me. LOL
All right I am done complaining I hope everyone is doing well.

I of course had to take a pic. Thought it was so dang cute.
Thanks you for being so supportive of me talking on this new adventure of selling my jewels. I like your ideas for names but I think I have come up with 2 that I like . So what do you all think about Jenny Beads or Jenny's Jewels? Do they sound silly and child like or do you think catchy sounding. Do I need to go back to the drawing board and think up a new names.

I have been given the opportunity to sale my jewelry at a local store here in Palmer. The store owner said if I wanted to she would let me set up a table out side her store and sale my jewelry one day the week of valentines day. I was very surprised. See what can happen when you buy a truffle. I am so nervous. I think my jewelry is pretty but will others think it is lovely enough to buy? I also have appointments to talk to to other stores about selling my jewelry as well. Dale of course is so supportive and I am just freaking out... This is just my little hobby.
Now I need to come up with a name for my jewelry and I also need to design some new pieces .
So I am asking you my dear friends to 1st pray I don't get to freaked out and 2nd help me com up with a Name for my jewelry.
My blog is mostly about me and my everyday ordinary happenings. Well a major part of who I am is my region. For those of you who don't know i am a member of the LDS Church.
Last night or beloved Prophet Gorden B. Hinckley passed away. When i first heard the news tears welled up in my eyes then I was overtaken by the joy of knowing that he is with his Beloved Eternal companion Marjory. I love knowing the plan of salvation and knowing that life does not end when we die. I am very happy for president Hinckley that he is home. I can hardly wait until that glorious day when I will be reunited with My loved ones. Exspeshaly my sweet William.

Last night a group of us got together to play the game House of Firer. It is almost like bunco. It was a ton of fun.. It was amazing to see how different peoples personalities are when the are competitive. I was a little surprised by how loud and crazy some of these normally quite church going guys could be...
So we had a winner of the night and a looser of the night.. Can you guess who the looser was? It is not so bad being the looser when you get a fun gift..
I received so exciting news yesterday as well. I am not quite ready to share maybe I will tomorrow. I am nervous and excited about it all at the same time. So stay tuned for my announcement. It might be fun to guess what my news may be so leave a comment with your guess.

|You Belong in Milan|
Stylish and sophisticated, you want to enjoy a truly European life - away from tourists!
Milan fits you perfectly. Great shopping, high quality food, lots of culture... with very little hype.
I totally thought this was fun.. I have always wanted to go to Malian. I have never been to Italy . I have always envied my sister for living there for 4 years. Maybe one day I can go with Dale before we are old and grey.
So what European city are you take the quiz and post it in my comments. Cant wait to see ..

|What Jennifer Means|
You never give up, and you will succeed... even if it takes you a hundred tries.
You are rational enough to see every part of a problem. You are great at giving other people advice.
You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.
You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.
At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.
You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.
You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.
You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.
You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.
You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.
You are loving, compassionate, and ruled by your feelings.
You are able to be a foundation for other people... but you still know how to have fun.
Sometimes your emotions weigh you down, but you generally feel free from them.
You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

Legions of readers entranced by the New York Times bestseller Twilight are hungry for the continuing story of star-crossed lovers, Bella and Edward. In New Moon, Stephenie Meyer delivers another irresistible combination of romance and suspense with a supernatural twist. Passionate, riveting, and full of surprising twists and turns, this vampire love saga is well on its way to literary immortality.

Today we decided to take the little kids out sledding. Well I was being a little slow getting all my snow gear on so they took it as a sign that I was not going and left wit out me:( I said to my self it should not be hard to find them I will just follow there tracks. So I set off to find them.
When I looked to my left up at the mountains I saw this beautiful sight...The clouds were very low and all you could see was the mountain top peeking over the clouds. It was just breath taking.. So i was off to find my family. I first went too look in the forest. Near my house.
As i entered the forestI prayed there were no Vampires or Werewolf lurking in the clearing by the pond. To my relief There weren't any but my family wasn't there either.
So I kept walking and walking and walking yet I still could not find my family. I thought where in the heck could they be? So with out any luck I went home. I took off all my snow gear and waited for my family to show up. Sure enough 10 minutes later I hear them in the front yard.
Boy did they look like the had a fun time they also looked very tuckered out...
Exspeshaly My newly turned 11 year old Robbie... He looked like he wanted to fall down and take a nap..
My sweet little Ben was happy but cold he came up to me and put his hands in my shirt and started crying my hands hurt mommy will you warm them up on your belly. They were very red and if my belly could talk it would say they were very very cold. from everything the kiddos said about there sledding trip I wished I was there to get some pix of the crashing into the trees and falling of the sled. I guess Ben had so much fun he could not stop laughing. Maybe next time they wont leave me behind..
