Welcome to my World

Welcome to my World

About me......

I'm a 64 year old wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. With my husband and two loving companions we live in mid-Missouri.
Tagg our 4 year old Pomi
Jime Johnson our 15 year 
old Golden-mix

Until two years ago I  pretty well devoted my life to my family. As a child I didn't have much of a family life. My father was killed in the Korean war when I was 15 days old and my mom had issues with alcoholism her whole life, so it was important for me to give my family the life, I didn't have, but wanted.

 Six years ago, my husband and I moved from our hometown, where we had lived our whole lives 80 miles away so that I could care for our youngest grandchild. Two years ago his mommy, our daughter quit her job to be a bigger part of his life, so I found myself spending my spare time learning how to design and and blog. NEVER having and education or classes in graphic design I was and have been challenged. Some days I feel as though I've conquered and others I feel there's so far to go. I had never seen a blog until I joined the infamous world of pinterest and was immediately intrigued. 195,000 views of my blog and almost 3,000 followers on Pinterest  , I think I've figured most of it out.......maybe.
I don't ever want to stop learning or loving this craft.......

My family and me Memorial Day 2014

Last week I volunteered at my grandson's kindergarten class, helping the children make their gingerbread houses.....the most fun ! When it was all over we had as much icing on us as our gingerbread houses did.

Hello Glendal
I too have just found your blog on Pinterest, and As it's a wet Sunday here in The UK I have requested my hubby (Mr Tall) to investigate Pinterest on my behalf.
I've just read your profile and it's heartening to see that you had to learn about blogging etc, I'm not very technical with pc's etc so I need his help.
There's so much inspiration out there and as I've only just tentatively started journaling your very generous printables are a joy... THANK YOU.
We also have a 3 year old Golden Retreiver who needs a wet walk.... So must fly.
Hope to visit you again soon.

Frances, how lovely to hear from you. Your A Little Bit Vintage is lovely.....keep on with the journaling. Thank you for the compliment. Our Golden boy is 16 this year. Getting up and down is a little slow for him...hate to see them age.
Check out my Facebook page, we can message

Sande said...

I just stumbled on your blog and your doing a wonderful job with all your creations. We are pretty close in age and I spent years building two websites that sadly I had to take down. Hoping to get them back up soon. Creating a blog is much easier as all the coding it down for you but I love doing it. Graphic design is so much fun and I've taken classes for Photoshop, Serif DrawPlus, Dreamweaver and a few more. Your creations are amazing and very much appreciated.

Glenda's World said...

Sande, wonderful hearing from you..........I would LOVE to take some classes.
I did the web page too........gave it up.....too many strigs tied to it and really was not very productive for me.
PLEASE let me know when you get your blog back up and shinning !
Would love to see it

Hello Glenda,
My daughter-in-law Glenda passed away a few months ago due to MS and breast cancer. I came to your blog from Pinterest because of your name...and I have enjoyed looking at all of your beautiful creations. I too am a Grandma and also a mixed media artist. You have sparked some creative ideas. Thanks. I will be checking in to see if you are back...I hope so.
Best Wishes

Glenda's World said...

Lula, I'm so so sorry for your loss. God be with you and your family for strength and comfort.
Isn't being a Gram the best ? I need to update my photos.
I hope you do create and share your talent. Be sure to let me see your creations.....

Take care, so nice to hear from you.
