For ATC Wednesday I revamped my special angel....this is Cole's Guardian Angel....I am happy she looks out for him when I can't.....
I also created a very tasty recipe...you can get a sneak peek below...but I will have to share the recipe once the contest is over....I submitted it to the Canadian Living Cook of the Year Contest.....
All I can say right now is that it tastes great and Cole loves it too....
Have a wonderful day!!!

I created a quick piece for this week's challenge...It represents freedom....freedom to fly where you want....freedom to believe in all of your dreams....and freedom to love and enjoy life....
The Statue of Liberty was a special gift from France and I am still amazed that they brought her over via boat...wow...and they say good things only come in small packages....
Have a wonderful Tuesday....I keep thinking it's Monday since we had a long weekend here!

I always wondered how my husband could be so “too good to be true” but he had the most amazing role model and you know what they say about the apple not falling too far from the tree….
Seeing them together and their special bond drew me more and more to their family. When we got married, Dad was the most supportive Father….and most people luck out in life with a wonderful father…but I gained a second one with Dad through marriage. He truly made me feel like his daughter and every time we saw each other we would share big hugs, laughs and make so many wonderful memories.
We live so close thanks to Dad who found the most perfect property for us to start our lives. It was nice to see Dad regularly and he always did funny things that still bring a smile to my face…..like when he delivered wood to our home driving his lawn mower across hwy 6…..
We have spent countless hours debating on what’s going to happen next on the Young and the Restless and we always scheduled our dinners together around our show. We both loved to garden and year after year Mom wanted me to teach Dad about removing the suckers off of tomatoe plants to make them grow better and year after year Dad would pluck the wrong parts….we would laugh and laugh….
I loved watching his relationship with my husband Brad, who thanks to Dad is the most amazing with our son Cole. Dad used to bug us all the time about having a baby and we are so blessed that our child spent time with his Grandfather. We will talk about Dad to him as he grows and talk about the big heart he had…..and the big shoes he will have to fill….
Dad dedicated his life to making a difference in this world. He was one of the busiest people I ever met. He worked full time hours volunteering for Senior Support and delivered meals on wheels whenever needed. He was an Angel….He would never ever say no to helping others and I am so proud to say that he is my Father-in-Law. He taught us the importance of family, love and faith and his positive attitude would rub off on each and everyone he came in contact with.
Seeing him in his last weeks was one of the hardest things, but I truly believe He is with us always now and I know he is at peace…..I feel his presence each and every day and I am so grateful for that. Only time can heal a broken heart and that is what I have without Dad.
He will always have a special place in my heart forever and I know that one day we will be together again……Bless you dear Father….you will be greatly missed…."

Hi Everyone....Music is magic...and I have always loved my violin....I started some formal training when I was a child but the lessons ended when my teacher was unable to do it anymore....
I take my violin out when I am home alone with Cole and we have so much fun with it.....The sound of it always makes me smile.....
So naturally I created a special ATC with an illustration I did of my violin....
hope you enjoy it!!! and I hope you can almost here it....
Happy Wednesday !!
