Poem: I Miss You©

 I Miss You©
I miss you in all of these passing days
I miss your smiles and carefree ways
I miss the hands that fit so perfectly in mine
How I wish I could stop the sands of time
But they come day after day
And a little piece of my heart is chipped away
I miss your laughter and wonder how much you’ve grown
All I have left now are pictures on the walls at home
With all my heart each night I pray
That you know my love for you has never strayed
So many tears we all have wept
So many promises we never kept
Forever is for so very long
I hope my heart is as strong
Cause three little voices still echo there
I still see little chocolate faces with tousled hair
I miss the books you wanted me to read
I miss how you would run from room to room
With such lighting speed
I miss how you would wave and blow me kisses at the door
I know now, not even death could hurt me more.
              Connie Hughes

Poem: My Mothers Love©

My Mothers Love©

There is a grave on the side of a hill
It’s so quiet here even the air is still
But a warm soft rain begins to fall
Its been so long that even memories
Are hard to recall
I kneel down on the warm wet grass
Suddenly moments of my life come
Rushing at me so fast
I brush cob webs from the stone that
Bares your name
We are, you and I one in the same
Thank you for this life
Though at times it’s hard to bare
How much it would of helped
If you were there
When I lost you it was like
A long walk in a cold and dark dawn
You want to stop but you keep Moving on
I had never seen death in any bodies eyes before
How badly it hurts, right down to the core
You understand what the word final means
And all the petty worries, how silly they seem
I know you know that my heart is broken
Because between a mother and daughter
There is a language, though no words are ever spoken
Thank you for the gentle hands that cared for me
So much now I understand, with a woman’s eyes I see
You gave me life with all it’s twist and turns
You taught me lessons I’m sure you thought I’d never learn
You weren’t a perfect person and either am I
Because of your love
You make me try.

Spooky Pumpkin Patch©

Right out of the pumpkin patch!
This little ghost family was so much
fun to make and so cute...
One is coming right out of the pumpkin...
my banner is something I printed on my computer...I used a program called
My Scrap Nook it's free...
I painted wooden skewers black
and hot glued them on! 
I hope you all have a
Super Spooky Happy Halloween!
Happy Crocheting!

My Halloween Table

Here is my Halloween table this year...I made a green monster doll and I just had to add him to the table...I make so many things for little girls, so I thought I would
make something a little boy would like too!

 These Halloween Place mats, place card holders and coaster's...will definitely make meal time fun for any


 I got these cute little candle holder buckets at Target...they really look cute at night!


Green Monster Place Mat

My green monster is my favorite!
I made all of my Halloween decorations with
Red Heart Super Saver Yarn!


Black Cat Place Mat

It just wouldn't be Halloween without a black cat

 and a creepy blood shot eye ball!!
