Welcome to my blog. Stick around and read a few posts.

I would like to thank everyone that uses my Theme designs and Wallpapers.

A special thank you to all of you that take the time that to write or post comments on my designs at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/MaDonna/

I hope you become a follower and check in every once in awhile. I am trying a bit harder to update more often.

10,000 and Counting!

Hearts and Butterfly Kisses

I just now had a user email me and tell me this was my 10,000th theme! I had no idea I had that many on. I don't check out the site as much as I should I guess. I just keep working. Right now I know I have too many Valentine themes made to put on this year so hopefully I will still be around for next Valentines Day.
Have a great day all!

Think I got it!


Well, I think "maybe" I have it figured out. Blogger keeps changing things and I had to go back and re-learn some stuff to get everything back to half way normal.
Wow, what a game we watched yesterday. The Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl! The Seahawk fans have to be the most loyal, most spirited fans out there. And it seems like the players really appreciate the fans. Anyway it was a great game and they pulled it out. I am looking forward to the big game but wonder if I will be able to breathe! Luckily our daughter in laws mother (the biggest Seahawks fan ever!) is up there looking out for them. Go Hawks!

Till next time. I will try to post more often this year. 

Have a great week!

 Boxers and Bikinis

I am afraid I am running out of patience with blogger! I have been working all afternoon trying to update and reconfigure my blog and not getting much done. I have lost the little deer picture I had worked on one whole afternoon and now have trouble even trying to sign in to post or edit, so please have patience with this old lady who is trying...but not getting much done. Seahawks play tomorrow so will be watching that. Go Hawks!

I am working on Valentines Day themes so had to post this one I just made. Kinda cute, I thought.

Have a good Sunday.

Four Minutes to Midnight

From Brand Thuder

Last year went way too fast. It was a good year up until the very last.
On Friday the 13th of December, my husband had a heart attack when he was up in the mountains hunting. He managed to get himself off the mountain and back to his truck and drove home! I took him to the ER and after all the tests, etc. they did surgery and put a stent in. He was very lucky he made it home. He did have a setback and that slowed us down even more, but he is on the mend now and just has to take it easy for awhile.  So we celebrated his 78th birthday for just making it to 78!

He has helped out people that can't afford to take their vehicles to a garage for repairs for years, so it is bothering him that he has had to tell them he can't work on their cars for awhile. He has talked to them on the phone and managed to repair their own, though! 

Our Christmas was very quiet. We were home by ourselves on Christmas Eve for the first time in 56 years but we both needed the rest. Christmas Day it was just our children here and we had Papa Murphy do the catering! So it was a very no stress Christmas. I thank God for our wonderful kids and don't know what we would do without them. I guess we raised them right because they are all kind, loving, caring people. I feel very fortunate that they are all within a few miles of us, too. My family moved a lot and that is no fun for kids and I didn't want mine to have to do that. So we only moved them once when my husband got a transfer with the Forest Service, and that was when they were in the 1st. 3rd and 4th grade, so they were all able to have childhood friends and graduate from highschool with them. Most of the USFS friends and people he worked with have their family scattered all over the US. I didn't want that for our family, although my husband would have made more money by moving around a lot. But money is not the most important thing in the world! Family is!

I am very disappointed that the site I was getting all my pretty blog templates from is no longer on line! So I may be stuck with a Christmas template until I take the time to re-do the blog. I can change the picture I use for the seasons because I make those myself...but not the template for the blog.

I am beginning work on Valentines Day now. I didn't even use up all the Christmas designs I made so have some for next year.

I don't know about all you out there but I am ready for summer and winter is only a few days old. 

Till next time.
