Welcome to my little world! My name is Donna and I'm the mother of one very spoiled kitty named Clarice. I was a banker for over 20 years but now I'm a SAHM and loving every minute of it. I'm a super, huge Bon Jovi fan and an avid cross stitcher. I love decorating my home with flea market finds, primitive style items and vintage items. My hubby says if the last three generations threw it out as trash it'll end up in our house as a decoration.

What I do when Mark's gone

That's one of the first questions I get asked when people discover that Mark's been gone on business trips so now you all are in the know.......This is what I do....eat junk food, watch bad chick flicks or crime shows and stitch until my eyes can't take it any more.

Swan Lake by Blackbird Designs finished today 4/1/13 stitched to honor my niece, Josilyn aka Josi. She's really a great artist and one year for Christmas gave me a chalk drawing of a swan with a crystal snowflake attached so as soon as I saw this chart I knew I'd stitch it for her.  She just turned 15 last week (OMG, where has the time gone?) 
This is one of my favorite pics of my nieces and nephews so starting from the left, Kelton (16), Josi (15), Rachel (16) and finally Zared(20)  They are my pride and joy!  I love these kids and they make me a proud auntie everyday.

Ok I also finished this old chart called Alphabet Sampler by Birds of a Feather which has been in my stash for way, way too long.


  1. Oh, my dream day - eating junk food and stitching! Little Criminal Minds mixed in and I'd be happy too! I want to stitch the Alphabet Sampler too. ~Ann
