Another Year!!



Today I turn 45 years old and I am struggle with it because it seems once your out of your thirties life picks up speed and it doesn't slow down for anything! I look back and my kids were babies just a few years ago and here we are eight years later. Don't get me wrong, I love my life!! I wish time would slow down once in a while to make some moments last longer. I would never want to change a thing in my life because God has me where he wants me to be. The journey has been a rough one but so worth it!!


This is a homemade printing press Scott made me for my B-Day. I've only printed 5"x7" images so far, but it's been designed to print "12x14" images. The orange hydraulic to the right is used with the press.

Happy Birthday Carla! What a wonderful gift from your hubby! You look beautiful - feel beautiful too, after all - age is not just about the number (and I'm right behind you). ;o)

Carla,
Just found your wonderful dolls.
Very creative with interesting expression.
You are a pretty good looking doll yourself!
Happy birthday!
I'm impressed by so many women pressing their positive comments on a guy who can make a press.
Must look into that!
Regards,
