Hi sweetie. Happy Anniversary. Today would have been our 26th wedding anniversary, and it’s the second one I’ve recognized without you by my side. This year has been rather low key, and not as emotional as last years was, but then, you had only been gone for a little over four months last year, and it was our silver anniversary.

I’ve been in Iowa since the end of January helping Mom and Dad. Daddy...

@deadorcs at GenCon50

By designsbyanna
on June 22, 2017
I’ll be carrying on the tradition of going to GenCon in Indianapolis in mid August. Randy and I missed last year because we decided that buying a house finally was more important than going to the convention-we didn’t have funds for both. We closed on the house the day after Randy had been released from […]

Hi friends, it’s been awhile since I posted. Life continues to go one, one day at a time, and I have begun to come out of my grief hibernation, a little more each day.

I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog. Those of you who know me personally, know that the past 5 months have seen a lot of changes for me and my family. There have been things to celebrate: reuniting with our oldest son and his family, meeting our newest grandson, buying our first house. I have […]

I had a post from a new blog that I’ve decided to follow, and it resonates with me right now. I have actually put this into practice, yet again, over the past month: when I discovered from my sister that my oldest beloved son, from whom I have been estranged for well over a year […]

We are in the middle of the process towards closing on August 17th, and the packing has barely begun. Hubby is dealing with some undetermined physical issues that make it difficult for him to do anything in the evenings but recover from his day at work. The 20-somethings have been working like madmen at their […]

<a href=”http://www.bloglovin.com/blog/6681735/?claim=2s49rpeu34e”>Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a> I’ve taken a bit of a break from felting. Not sure why, but until I feel the still small inner voice say to me “It’s time, Anna”, I’ve been allowing myself the luxury of taking up something old and something new. If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, […]

Many of you know that for the past several years, come August, I would be teaching classes at GenCon in Indianapolis. Those classes are so much fun, and I look forward to seeing students from previous years attend new classes. But not this year. My husband and I had every intention to attend GenCon 2016 […]
