“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down...build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence...help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln
Welcome friends. Spring is starting to show up in little area , yesterday we where in the upper 60's, but we are cooling off again for the weekend. My weeds are coming up but so far no flowers! I did find two more wonderful shops from the Dirtroad Team on Etsy. The first shop belongs to Debra from North to Alaska. She retired from music due to a hearing loss, and is now living on a sailboat in Alaska. Before moving to the boat Debra was a stain glass artist. Due to the small space on the sailboat she has found the world of beading. You will find beaded bookmarks and bracelets. You can see the influance living in Alaska has on her art and bead work. If you enjoy beading she also offers patterns so you might try your own hand at this. Debra also has a blog http://mvseawolf.blogspot.com/ where you can read about her life living on a sailboat. What a neat home to have! The next shop is Stuck in the Mudd Pottery & Prints. Janille has been throwning pottery for 9 years using tranditional tools and techniques. She also makes necklaces from buttons, prints from her pen & Ink drawings. Her collages uses fabric and hand painting. Janille also has a blog htp://stuckinthemuddpottery.blogspot.com. Both shops have many unique items for you to look at. Enjoy your visit with both artist today.

There hasn't been much said about the military mom. Yet no wars could ever have been won without her! A military mom is a teacher of independence, perserverance, discipline and integrity, possesses a great sense of humor and can make of any house, a home. She is a woman of quiet strength who has shaped the hearts of our Bravest Heroes and taught them to value peace above all else. The military mom is unshakable in love for her country. That is how she is able to let go of her most precious treasure. A son or daughter. We proudly salute and thank the "Military Mom".
