I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

being sick sucks

I had an ok day, which was beautiful I might add. But as the day went on I didn't feel so good till every part of my body started to hurt by the time I picked up my husband I thought I was going to throw up and could barely drive. I now have a 100.9 degrees. I am a big baby.

Today was starting out well, I got 12 of my match boxes completed. YEAH!! That feels so good. Unfortunately I really feel like I sabotage myself but I guess I can't count getting sick. I am actually going to post pictures.

Well this is it for now. Am going to become mindless on Face Book.
Night all.

  3. I agree on the being sick part! I was sick for 3 weeks with a head cold and then before that a month with dental issues. Not only is it no fun but it makes it harder to keep up with challenges and deadlines! Chin up, you are a wonderful artist and I love your little matchbox creations! Especially the one I received from you for day #2.


  4. Oh I love my little forest scene - my day 8 that you made. Thank you so much Nancy. They are just amazing and the work you put into these...wow!

  5. Hello Nancy! I posted your beautiful nativity matchbox on my blog today. I actually have TWO of yours! I'm amazed at your talent!
    Have a blessed Christmas. I hope you are feeling better.

  6. Nancy, Everyone is just in awe of your beautiful matchboxes and all the time you put into each one. Thank you so much!
