Not Frilly !!

Okay , this post has nothing to do with frills, art , nothing pink or vintage !!!! Just a little info about where I live . It has been crazy in this area for the last year or so in my town or should I say ...area , and now is going to get even "crazier" ! Because of all the oil business in this area it has been booming , jobs are in abundance , but finding a place to live is even harder for some ! The motels in the area are usually full with "workers" ! The U. S. Geological Survey released details of its most recent study on the Bakken formation in the Williston Basin of Montana and North Dakota. The survey shows that there is a lot more oil in this area than they actually thought ! Homes are being built as fast as possible and apartment complexes going up to house everyone . All makes for major changes in our area ! We are in the center of it all ! The photo is of bumper stickers "Rockin The Bakken".
The price of gas keeps going up & many times we pay even more per gallon here !!! But if someone is unemployed it would have to be because they don't want to work !! So , hope I didn't bore you too much !!

Cuteness !!!!!!!!!!

How adorable !! Just had to share a photo of the new addition to our family , well actually my daughter & her husband just got a new little puppy !! A mini Chihuahua, so tiny and little! It follows them where ever they go and falls asleep in their arms if they hold it ! It is so tiny ! She always wanted a Chihuahua growing up and me being the mean mother would never let her get one ( we already had three cats ) ! So now she has one !! Just had to shrare the cuteness !

As we all know life can get so busy at times and so overwhelming with all of life's issues that we neglect the most important things that we should be doing ! As the mother of six children ( yes ..I said six) there is always something going on ! They are all grown , but as a mother they are always in our hearts and prayers !

Posting a photo of a banner I made for Creative Call Studios . Check out all of the other artists on the site and see what they all have to offer. The Little Things ...... check out my page for my new things!
