Shabby Pillows & 3 More Sleeps Till The Little Deer Market!!


December 2, 2015 by Terry

Most people do not know this but I suffer from low back pain caused by a small ‘deformity’ in my low back.  I was born with an extra vertebra that has fused itself to my hip.

After months of injections to relieve pain, my Dr. decided I would be a good candidate to have RF Neurotomy performed.  For those of you who do not know what that is, it is when they take a metal probe and burn the nerve endings along the spine to deaden them and relieve pain.

Well, yesterday was the big day and I nervously went and had it done.  I was super scared!  The words ‘burning’ and ‘nerve endings’ should not be in the same sentence as far as I’m concerned  ;)

After having five children you would think I shouldn’t be afraid of the pain but…

Anyhoo!  I am so happy to say that all went well and I am feeling just fine.  I feel a little uncomfortable today but that is to be expected.  I am looking forward to some pain free DIY in the near future!

I know I should be relaxing for the next couple of days but I am sooooo excited over this Market that I can barely sit still!  I thought I’d share some DIY shabby pillows I built for the market.  They aren’t anything super fantastic but they are simple and pretty!

Don’t forget to pop by tomorrow for Making Broken Beautiful!  It’s an all things Christmas party for the month of December so anything goes!  Link up all your Christmas goodies, crafts, recipes and projects!  Have a great day all!

    I’m glad the procedure went well and I pray for a swift recovery. It sounds like you’re excited about the market coming up soon. Love the pillows!! They look fabulous!!


  4. Oh my, that doesn’t sound like a fun procedure, Terry. I hope you’re feeling more comfortable today. Your pillows are so pretty! Good Luck this weekend at the Little Deer Market! If it’s anything like the ones I attend here in the Edmonton area last weekend, you will be one busy gal!

The other day I let my daughter drive us home after being away. I was absolutely exhausted from life in general. This was the view from my passenger window... a beautiful reminder to slow down and listen to God’s whispers... He’s got this. #listentothewhispers #godsgotthis #bestillandknow #thatstillsmallvoice #heismystrength
So proud of these girls! Congratulations Haileybear and Brittany! #sweetsuccess #allgrownup #newchapter #bestfriends #graduation #thecuratorscollection #soproudofyou

... and she doesn’t think she’s pretty! ??? So proud of this girl! Baby number two is graduating from high school this coming Saturday… Where has the time gone? She has definitely been our “wild card” from the very beginning! So full of energy and always ready to help wherever it is needed. She is ambitious and fun and has an amazing heart! We know she will be successful in anything she does. What a gift she has been to our family! #proud #beautiful #strong #loveofmylife #blessed #loved #congratulations #graduation #bestfriendsforever #modelmaterial
Happy Monday friends! I know I haven’t posted anything for quite some time but as I sit here this evening I feel it’s time to share a bit more of what has been happening for the last few months. Most of you don’t know this but for the last 11 months I have been slowly learning the technical side of my family’s business. For the past 43 years my parents have invested their blood sweat and tears making our family business such a huge success. (@globefootwearltd ) I am privileged and honoured to be able to carry that on for them. 11 months ago I took a leap of faith and left everything I was comfortable with to come and carry on our family heritage. Our children were brave enough to leave their friends and their school in order to support their mom in keeping the family heritage alive. Today I am proud to say that while I still have much to learn, I am happy that we took that leap. It truly is an amazing journey and a hard (at times challenging) one at that… But with God’s grace and strength we will carry through for continued success! God is good! I’m still loving furniture makeovers and when I can, I still enjoy DIY and sharing what I make… But for now… I have to take a step back from that part of my life and focus on what is before me. I hope you will stay, and follow along in my journey. We have a new home where we are and are wanting to put our style mark on it… I know there are a few stencilling projects in our future ;-) I will share more with you soon. You can follow along on my business journey too at @globefootwearltd ❤️😊 #newlife #newfriends #newbusiness #newadventures #shoestore #familybusiness #heritage #myheritage #godisgood #strengh #godsgrace #globefootwearltd
