My hubby sold our first item in our shop! Yippee! We just started our shop on January 31st and he already sold a ring! Congrats, hubby! We are attempting to sell rosary rings and button necklaces. He does the rings and I do the necklaces. He prays the rings like he suggested I pray my charm bracelet. I wrote about that in my last post. So, please visit our shop and see if there is anything you like. There will be more items coming in the near future (if all goes as planned).


I have been tagged in another meme. So, here it goes. Having just done this, my 7 things may be very boring. We’ll see!

I was tagged by Princess Darla at Overcomer.

  1. When I lived in Marion, Michigan in kindergarten through 4th grade, I remember being really popular. I’m pretty sure I remember right. I was never popular after that, tho.
  2. Button NecklaceI like to make these really awesome button necklaces and everyone really likes them. But I don’t make very many because I don’t have a good space to work at and 3 and 4 year old have grabby hands!
  3. I just drank my first Mt. Dew in 2 years a few days ago. Bad, Elaine, bad!
  4. I have a small collection of cattle. I have a bull from Spain and a Sabu from the Philippines.
  5. I have never dared to dye my hair. I’m afraid the dye would change my strawberry blonde permanently. And I love my hair color.
  6. My favorite cereal is Special K. Seriously, who knew it would taste so good? It’s especially good with a cut-up banana on the top, no sugar needed.
  7. My favorite color is brown. It used to be light blue, but I think it’s brown now.

That was hard after the other 10 last week! So, now I have a chance to tag 7 more people.

Recently, I was reading one of the many blogs that I read and Lutheran Husker wrote about how he likes to write haiku poems while in boring meetings. So, while driving back from Chicago this weekend, I decided to write some poems. Some of them are inside jokes, so they may not make any sense whatsoever, but I hope you enjoy them!Parking’s a racket.
We want an open spot. We go
’round. We are trapped!

Elaine flatlines often.
She needs food stat! Quick! Hurry!
Whew! She is okay.

Mackenzie fears death,
Death from a killing disease:
public pen in mouth.

Lemur Eyes

Lemur eyes are big.
Big, bulging, large, watchful eyes
spot a restaurant.

The Bethmobile is
gone. It blew up and
the pavement is black.

Bethmobile, you’re gone
in a flaming tribute to
your battery problems. Oh!

A puddle appears.
The fire is washed away;
only steel is left.

Puddle of buttons,
puddle of pins, you are one.
One big memory.

God loves my mother.
He has her best planned out,
so she will be blessed.

Sunburns are a pain.
A pain on my head and back;
a cancerous pain.

Coffee is yucky.
Lemonade is yummy.
Don’t drink coffee…ew!
