~ A prayer needed for my Granddaughter Bella~

Could you please keep my sweet 12 year old
Granddaughter Bella in your prayers..
She had to spend today in the emergency room ..
She again has an infection. We'll know more when the blood work is back.
The medications she takes depresses her immune system
causing her problems.
Bella was so upset because she could not go to softball practice today..
God bless her, she's such a sweetheart!
Thanks so much..

~Twilight obsession~

Twilight obsessions.
Isabella AKA Bella (my 12 year old granddaughter)
my daughters and I are a bit "twilight" obsessed.
Bella got us hooked on the "twilight" book series.
She read the books before they were so popular and was hooked.
She LOVES to read, never without a book in her hand.
I remembered how thrilled she was to hear
the movie was coming out, she saw it twice before we did.
A few months ago we did a "twilight movie girls night out"
with Bella, my 2 daughters, my sister and I.
I enjoyed the movie, but I'd not read the book yet..
Last Monday I started on book one "twilight"
now a week later I'm on book 4 (last one) yep I'm hooked.
Yes the books are about vampires and werewolves.
Yes they are written for teens....
but they are such endearing books about young love & devoted friendship.
It's been great fun chatting with Bella about these books..
We spent Friday making twilight jewelry, reading & chatting.
What fun it was for both of us!
Nothing like the bond between Granddaughter & Grandmother.
Twilight comes out on DVD on March 21.
Bella and her Mama will be at one of the many
"twilight" midnight parties.

~My grumpy little Fairy altered art~

When searching through vintage graphics
I came across this adorable little grumpy girl..
So I thought I'd try my hand at a bit of altered art.
I've seen these adorable fairy/angels before.
With vintage book pages, sheet music
crape paper, ribbon, trims
I put them together..
