NOTE: If I do find anyone else selling my patterns on E-Bay, I will not give them the chance of taking them down before I take other measures as I have before. I'm really tired of trying to be the "nice guy." They certainly know that these are NOT their patterns...they know it's stealing. The next person I find that has stolen my patterns and listed them for sale on E-Bay...I'll email or call E-Bay right away to let them know that this particular person has stolen merchandise for sale.

Once again I'm asking for some advice...p-l-e-a-s-e (lol).
The pictures below are of a lotion that I found and purchased at...one of my all time favorite shopping spots...Goodwill!!!
This is actually a brand of lotion that I have read about, but found to be a little pricey for me...so I was so excited to have found this at Goodwill...paid $1.99 for it.
However, there aren't any instructions given on the bottle and I haven't been able to find this same bottle anywhere yet on the web.
If anyone could advise me on this...I would be so grateful as I LOVE this find of mine and would love to be able to use this lotion. From what I've read about Shiseido, this brand is suppose to work wonders for those fine lines and wrinkles...so...HELP!!! (lol)

Now...I do have a favor to ask of all of you. I have something very special I'd like to make for my hubby for Christmas. I recently came across 3 old pictures of his father...whom he adored. Now you have to understand how rare and how very unlikely it is that I came across these pictures. Bob's mother had Alzheimer's and consequently threw away anything and everything that had any personal value at all. I mean...no pictures of the family...AT ALL. No pictures of Bob and his brother when t hey were little...no school projects of theirs...nothing. I do have a few pics of Bob though...very few. But...they do happen to coincide with these pictures I found of his dad....and what I want to do is to put the pictures together. Sorry...I'm sure there's a technical term for it...but I don't know it.
I have a picture of Bob's dad in his army uniform...and I also have a few pictures of Bob in Viet Nam in his uniform. I have a picture of his Dad playing the guitar and I have a picture of Bob playing the guitar. I want to put the two army pictures together and the two guitar pictures together to appear as though he and his dad are in the same picture. Do you know what I mean?
Okay...now I know there's software you can purchase that will produce what I want...but I have no idea what it's called?...where to go to look?....no idea at all. And...the cheaper the better as I also want to get these matted and framed professionally.
So...please guys. Your help, advice, ideas...would be so appreciated. So if you can help me out at all...just drop me a note at....email@example.com

I have to apologize for not writing sooner. There are times when life just gets in your way...ya know what I mean? (lol)
First I want to thank everyone for including my family in their prayers. I do believe in the miracle of prayers and so far things are pretty good.
I do have a few announcements for everyone. First; I have 3 sewing machines and one by one they've broke down; the third one just went down recently. So until I can get them into the shop, I will have to put a hold on my patterns. And..if that wasn't enough, my digital camera went down also meaning that I can't put any pictures up on my site, in the newsletter, etc. So I will need to replace that some how or get this old one working before I can put out another newsletter. This only means that my next newsletter may be a month or two late...but I will be back.
For you animal lovers out there, let me introduce you to Woody and Poco. Bob and I did a little animal rescue yesterday. We found the two little furbabies pictured above at a kill animal shelter 1 hour away. Both are rat terrier mixes. The first one is Woody. Woody was a senior with cataracts and was very thin. Our first visit to the vet, however, revealed that this sweet little one was more ill than anyone thought. Cuddled snugly and safely in my arms, this little one crossed over the Rainbow Bridge knowing how it felt to be loved at least once in his life.
The second picture is of Poco (means little). Our veterinarian estimates his age at about 4 months, and he was surprisingly healthy...if a little thin. Unfortunately though we haven't been able to get him to eat. He started to eat once and one of the other dogs growled at him and we haven't been able to get him to eat anything substantial since. He has eaten a few treats, but nothing more. He also has diarrhea. Now I know from the many furbabies we've adopted over the years, that diarrhea is not unusual as their tummies need to adjust to the new food, etc.
We've tried people food, baby food, puppy food, etc. I even bought some pet gravy and poured it over his dry food...still he didn't eat. If he doesn't eat by tomorrow, back to the vet we go. So....keep this little one in your prayers please. He's just the sweetest little thing....and in just 2 days he and I have bonded very deeply. If anyone has any advice....by all means drop me a note.
That's all of my news. I hope everyone is having a great evening.

I do so believe in the miracle of prayers....so I am once again asking for your prayers. This time for my mother. She lives so far away...she's in Arizona and I'm in Indiana. Now in her 80's, her health has always been very good. Now....they found a spot on one of her kidneys which, even without testing, they are calling cancer. At the time though (a few days ago), they didn't seem to concerned....they were going to remove that portion of that kidney and start her on radiation.
Now....they did a bone scan but avoided giving us the results. Instead they did x-rays of her legs. They're telling us that all the results 0f all the tests should be in on Tuesday and they were discuss everything with us then.
Because of personal issues, I am unable to be with my mother. My sister (Kathy) is there....doing what she can. Please pray for strength for her.
My husband (Bob), who works midnights, came home at 1 a.m. this morning....sick. My husband NEVER takes off work for being sick. And....the last time he was this ill he ended up in the hospital. More prayers for him please.
And...I looked down at my hand about an hour ago and just realized that the main diamond in my wedding ring is gone...is that a bad sign do you think???
Nothing is looking up at the moment and even though I am an optimistic by nature....it's getting harder and harder to hold on to.
Okay...just spoke with my mother and she sounds pretty good. Hopefully she's not overly optimistic and that her "up" mood rightly expresses what really is going on. Hate being so far away. But....we have tried, are trying, and will continue to try to get them to move back to Indiana. So far....no luck.
Thanks everyone...so very much,

Good evening everyone from Muncie, Indiana where it is finally sunny and the rain....thank the Dear Lord....has finally stopped, lol.
I'm writing to ask a big favor of everyone. I need to ask for prayers.
Last Thursday I had a black out spell. Since then I've had an abnormal MRI scan, according to the doctor who just called a few minutes ago, and I have to schedule to see a neurologist ASAP.
Now those who know me know I am "forever optimistic" and this occasion is no different. I'm sure this is going to turn out just fine in the end, but on the other hand I'm not stupid....lol....the smarty always ask for prayers.
Thank you all so very much for your kind emails regarding both my stolen pattern and my fight against puppy mills. You all never fail to bring a smile to my face.....you are all so very much appreciated.
