If at first you don't succeed

This morning while having breakfast with my husband, I saw a female cardinal that for the fourth day in a row was trying to building a nest in my blue fan plant. Because of water she will not be able to do that. But it got me to thinking how persisted she was and that she would not give up, and I thought how many times I and many others have given up to easily. If life and the economy how it is today, it would be so easy just to give up. So I think we should all take a lesson from her and keep trying to fulfill are dreams, whether in be at work, school or trying to my a new home or have a family, keep trying.

Remember the old saying "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again"

Just a thought for the day

Promoting my Blog and Fan Page

Hello everyone,

It is a very hot muggy day here in the Midwest. So I have decided stay indoors today and get my Blog and Fan page promotion off

the ground.

What I will be doing is giving away one of the following; a business card hold, checkbook holder or calendar hold. The sample pictures are above. It will be a random drawing and you will have a choice of which one, the color of the material and thread used.

All you have to do is become a follower of my Blog or become a fan on my Fan page on Facebook.

Once I have 50 of either one or combined I will have a drawing. I will keep this promotion going all summer.

I hope all will join in and follow the 2 sites and I start launching some new creations for the fall.

I love doing all things creative, whether it be sewing, jewelry making, scrapbooking or decorating my home. I guess that is why I named by shop Creations by Nora Marie.

Keep following and good luck to all

Making a difference

I decided to write this today to show that yes one person can change things. In the town I live in there is a CVS which has the handicap parking around the corner from the front door. Since I use the handicap parking this has always bothered me, since all other CVS's are at the front door. Well we are now getting a Walgreens and there parking is in the front. So my husband suggested I contact CVS corporate and see what could be done. Well thinking this would get no where I did it any and have been contacted by the District Mangager, by phone and email, to inform me that the are working with the landlord(evendently CVS doesn't own the property in my town) to correct this and have the parking in the front like it should be. So yes, one person can make a difference.

The other thing you will here me brag about a lot are my 3 wonder grandchildren. Aren't they all just gorgeous. My McKinley just made honor roll for all 4 quarters.

Of all the things that I have design and sewn I think I'm most proud of the wedding dress I did for my daughter Becky. Her we are on her wedding day and a picture of the back.

This our little princess Maggie Mae. She basically rules the house. As you can see from this shot we are disturbing her nap time by basically taking this picture. Since we have some redecorating she no longer has this couch to rest on.

This wristlet is a special gift from a fellow sewer. I did the embroidery and she designed and sewed the writlet.
