On the table....

Thanksgiving 2017!

I'm always amazed at how quickly time now flies. As I grew up people told me this would happen; however, in our current society it is not just flying by for adults. I hear it in my grandkids, also. So much on their plates there is little time for watching clouds, reading a good book (for fun not school!), catching up with friends, or snuggling with a grandparent.

Time for riding bikes (even if you did take the phone away!) or skipping rocks on the pond in the park.

I've lost several people over the past seven years that were very special to me. Some I made time for...some I did not make enough time.

When my job with the University Missouri ended four years ago I did not want to start over with another day job. Working 40 hours a week with little vacation. That's why I started Never Bored Creations. Because I wanted time.

Time to take my mom (who turned 85 years old - today!) to doctor appointments. Time to mow her grass. Time to help my cousin Carrie after her surgery.  Carrie who gives me so much as she does my business books, packages and prices products.

Time to handle things around the house. And time to enjoy my husband's retirement next year. Time to listen to my daughters phone calls as they drive to work in the mornings. Time....

So as you begin the next few weeks of the holiday season, take time. Take time to slow down. Time for that extra hour's visit. Time for the extra hugs and kisses.

Take time to look over the past blessings, thanking our Lord for all He has provided. Time to think on things of the future that are good and meaningful.  Time to just be....

Time...remember you can never get back what is past. Don't let tomorrow's time become yesterday's loss.

I pray blessing over each and everyone of you during this blessed season.

A new friend...

Hello Quill Buddies,

I know it has been awhile. It was a wonderful fall season at Silver Dollar City again this year. They are very good to us. The artisans are amazing. And, of course, getting to meet so many of you just makes me beyond happy!

Many of you signed up for my newsletter. Thank you! And several asked for the quilling grid that I use. Here's the link for anyone wanting my grids: 2 page grid pdf

November and December just flew by and I can't believe it is the middle of January - of 2017!!

So what's new for 2017? First, I have a new companion.  Meet Finnegan Palmer. He was my Christmas present and joined our home the Monday before Christmas. He is now about 7 months old and can live up to 20 years. So he'll be around for some time!

And his favorite color of quilling paper is pink! Anytime I have a pink strip in my hand he heads down my arm to grab it, runs back up my arm, and chews on it! lol He is so funny and keeps me laughing all day.

I have new classes planned online at Skillshare: Check it out here for a special 3 months for only 99 cents: Skillshare.com/r/neverboredcreations

Working on new patterns for my Etsy shop, too! Having only three patterns is just not enough. You all are hungry for great ideas!

Well, I best get back to the other stuff. Just thought I would touch base with you so you did not think I had rolled away! Until next time....

Here's to no time for boredom in 2017!
