Pillows for local Army Reserve Unit

I found these pillow panels at Walmart. I made 20 pillows for a local Amry reserve unit here in Long Island. The were donated to the family support group that have soilders that are away from home. I would love to make more - I keep checking Wal-mart to see if the got it back in, unfortunately many of the local Wal-marts here in NY have stopped selling fabric :-{{{{{

Thank you all

Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers. The condition my son has is called ASD (ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECT) basically its a hole that needs to be closed. I will fill you all in as the time draws near - he is scheduled to have the surgery in late May.

It is so nice to know that there is a community of caring and kind people such as yourselves.

Celebrating my little Brothers Birthday

We went to Caroline's Comedy Club in NYC for my brothers Birthday. Kevin Hart was the featured comedian for the evening. I made a gift basket for him and got to meet him backstage as well as my brother. He was hiliarous , he is very talented young man. His style of comedy is very down to earth and clean (which helped me to enjoy the show even more).

It's been forever

It's been a long while since I blogged. I have found time though to keep up with the blogs of others. I have been busy with the family. One of my sons is facing a health challgene - after a college physical , it was dicovered that he has to have open heart surgery. This came as a shock because he has been and continues to be athletic. He is currently on the Track team at Nassau Communty College and doing quite well (if I might add).
I am grateful to God that the heart defect was found because so many times these things are not detected until it is to late. So I am grateful knowing that God will see us through.

I have kept my self busy with crafting, sewing and my gift basket business "Expressions Of Faith - All occasion gift baskets. I am also working on developing a counseling and resource organization for teen mothers. "Project - Promised Destiny".

I am going to post pictures soon - just got a new camera, still learning how to work it. lol
