If you are out of the area, I would be more than happy to ship any items to you for a very small fee.

Beads! (and shea butter too!)

The Holiday Bead Party I had planned for Dec. 4th is now cancelled.
BUT I still have the products available for sale!


I have hundreds of beautiful BeadforLife products handmade by Ugandan women for sale.

These unique necklaces and bracelets, as well as shea butter lip balm and soap (it smells soooo good!), would make great holiday gifts - AND you would be helping a wonderful group of impoverished women!

If you're interested in making a purchase or would like to browse the items, call me or email me at waiting2beamommy@yahoo.com... I can come to you!

I can also accept payment online through paypal, so if you do not live in my area, you can still make a purchase! I can send you pictures of items you're interested in, and can ship them to you

for a small fee - cheaper than directly buying from BeadforLife!

Click HERE to view all the products BeadforLife offers, and feel free to contact me with any questions.
Products will be for sale until Dec. 20th.

the good ol' days

I came across this picture of my handsome daddy and his dog "Spot" from the late 1970's.
I just love it!

Oh boy... Thinking about all I need to accomplish from now until Dec 5th is putting me in a little panic!

This weekend I am PRAYING that we can get our bathroom remodel done in time for Thanksgiving and my Bead Party on Dec 4th.

I am also going to be getting a few things done ahead of time for thanksgiving dinner.

I am making a birthday cake and it must be completed on Dec 5th. I'm planning on baking it the beginning of next week and putting it in the freezer. The cake is going to be huge! It's a 3D helmet from the video game Halo Reach. I also will need to make huge amount of marshmallow fondant for this cake and color it. I'm hoping to do this this next week as well, as it stays fresh for weeks.

Then of course I need to clean the house for Thanksgiving.

Then after Thanksgiving I need to clean again and decorate the house for Christmas, since the Bead Party after all is a Holiday Bead Party.

I'm hoping I can get the carpets steam cleaned over Thanksgiving weekend.

And last but not least, this weekend I need to empty and clean our spare room. Currently it holds our computer desk, treadmill, sewing supplies, and Christmas decorations. This is because our good friend Apryl will be living with us while she continues college.

*shudder* This list scares me. Lets hope I can get it all done!

One rad kid (Miah) - our roadtrip to Forks, WA

Monday, November 15, 2010

Pain has become a familiar friend,
waiting for a weak moment to draw me in.
My heart is like ice, careful where I tread,
the broken shards feel like glass upon my feet.
Constantly trying to drown out this anger inside me,
unable to concentrate at all.
I don’t have time for tears anymore,
if I did, I’d unendingly be weeping.
I’m living in a fog, not entirely sure where I’m headed,
what was once west is now east – I’m so lost.
My dreams are fading and I’m losing hope,
if this is not my purpose in life, what is?
My faith in what I believed to be truth is now a question.
I’m simply desperate for something,
but I don’t know what that something is.
