"It's been a long time coming...."

I know, I know, where have I been? You guys can't imagine how crazy my life has been this past month! I have been reading everyone's blogs faithfully just not my own. I am the room parent for my 3 yr old's class and we have one thing after another planned and we haven't even got to the Christmas activities yet, UGH!!!!!

I am preparing for the Mistletoe Market in Perry Ga., which will be the 16, 17, 18th of Nov at the Ag Center for anyone in the area. I think they have 60 vendors this year and lots of variety for shopping. My Pampered Chef booth did well last year so I thought I would try to sell some of my crafting this year. I have knitted several wraps, made tons of journals and candles and I've gotten my self so worked up and nervous abt. how much money to put into this, I will have an ulcer when it's over. Everyone that stops by my booth and mentions this blog, gets 20% off your purchase.

The last time I posted I was working on my family reunion, Thank God that is over!!!!! It was great, we had abt. 75 people show which wasn't bad for the first ever Dover reunion. The majority of the family doesn't even know that the others exist so I thought all in all we did pretty good. I have more family shots I want to post but will have to do that later. I now have to go clean a costume that my child wore to school today for Fall Festival. Of course mine was the only one that spilled grape juice all over his lap.

This pic is my GGGrandparents David and Eliza Dover, supposedly
some Cherokee indian in her? What do you think? This one is my Mom and Dad and me-Dover bunch
This one is my mom and dad's wedding(Shivar and Dover Families)

Here is my GGGranddad-Brinson Shivar(family from Prussia)

I saw a post by Corey on family and thought since I have been working on these photos I would show them, who knows, maybe I have family out there I didn't know was visiting me.

I know it has been over a week since I posted and I haven't even visited y'all very much this week but I have been working on family issues. My dad is working in Illinois (he's an electrician) and has been there since June. He came home for a visit last weekend and bought an RV so I have been handling all of the paperwork and bills that come thru for him. I can hardly keep up with my own and now his too, UGH!!!

I am also in the process of planning the Dover Family Reunion that is to be held on Oct. 20th and this family is so spread out I am still hunting them down. I just found 3 in New Orleans area yesterday and there is only 1 month left before the reunion... Anyway, you can just imagine how frazzled I am working on it, 4 swaps that I joined like some kind of nutjob, and my everyday duties. I will have pictures in the next couple of days of the dresses I made for one swap, the sweet and sinister swap goodies and the Owl swap I am in. Needless to say I will not join 4 at one time again!!
I will be back in the next few days to show what I have been working on, hope everyone is having a great week.

"Flea"in and Taggin

Packs and packs of old gift wrap
I can remember this being on my Granma's curtains, but I found yards and yards.
The flea market has hundreds of these and I just keep buying them up, can't wait to make some altered books with them! You might even find a kit containing one in my etsy shop
Flea-in and Taggin.......Cause that's how we talk in this here part!!

I went to the flea market last week and wanted to share a few things that I found, obviously you see them above. I have also been tagged by Sandy to list my middle name and some words to describe me with each letter. Here are the rules:

So this meme works this way (condensed version):*You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name.*If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.* At the end of your post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag.

D-devilish(I love to play jokes on people or say shocking things that embarass most normal people)(you know, abt. hemorrhoids or pooping or what not)

A-Angelic(not really, it is just what my name means:)

W-witty(my husband will laugh hysterically at my using this word, he says I am just plain nuts)

N-never on time(as you can tell, Sandy tagged me on Aug. 30th)

Knittin' Projects

I feel like I haven't been in here in forever and really don't have time for much yappin' now but I did want to show off a few things I have been working on. They are all the same pattern but the bottom pic is a different thread. So easy to do, just cast on 20 on size 13 and for the next 10 rows add one at the beg. and the end, knitting only. After the first 10 rows you only increase at the beg. of each row until the piece is abt. 12 inch deep. You then cut tassles from the remaining thread and attach all the way around the bottom as seen in pic 2. The first and second pic is Colinette and the last I am not sure abt. It has more of a ribbon feel to it than the silky feel of the other.
My next post will be some of the goodies that I found "flea"ing last week. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

Here is the art doll hat I rec'd from Jenn. She is perfect for my home!!
This is the one I made.
I have been really working my Pampered Chef business in the last week so I haven't had a lot of time to blog or craft, but I did want to show you what I made Jennifer in the Art Doll Hat Swap and the great hat I rec'd from her. My camera is possessed so I had to take the pics from her blog. I have never done anything like this and am not sure it came out so great but I am going to try a few more and see what happens. My biggest problem is figuring out how to make the cone. Everyones looked taller and more slender and I don't know what I did wrong but anyway I think she is ok for my first. The one Jennifer sent me is perfect on my side table in my bedroom and as soon as I can I will post pics.

Swaps, swaps-(we are not talking abt. wives here)

I have just a minute to talk but wanted to let everyone know abt. the swaps that I am participating in and tell you to get over here, here and here to sign up. Tonight is Scrap and Craft at LDBC and I will try to take pics so all can see what our church is up to.

Women Of Faith

I am so "wo" out(in the words of Nicole C. Mullen)! She was awesome, by the way. 16,000 women and a few men in the Phillips Arena in Atlanta Georgia, praising God and acting completely silly was so much fun. I wish I had pics to show but nada, didn't even take a camera. I was so excited to be leaving home, if only for 1 night, I ran right out the door without even thinking abt. it and was watching all these women take pics and thinking to myself, "You'd think these women never go anywhere". Never dawned on me that I should have taken mine to show everyone. Sorry, y'all. I can't make it anymore, I must have sleep. I promise to be back tomorrow with the lucky winner of the paper packet!Good Night.

Join the Party!!

Kari over at Artsymama is having a party today and everyone is invited. Yes, I am late but then that's way it always is with three small children. Anyone that comments to this post will receive the packet that I showed in the last post. This will be last one for a while unless you want to buy on on etsy. Thanks for visiting and make sure you visit Kari and all of her friends!! I forgot the deadline to enter my drawing is Sunday the 12th. I am headed to the Women of Faith Conference in Atlanta and will return on Sat. night. I will draw right after church on Sunday and let all of you know who won!!!

Saturday, August 4, 2007


Yes, I had to take these in the front yard to get enough light for you to see the colors, pardon the grass.

well, I am so popular and had so many comments it was hard to choose, but out of the 4(yes, I said 4) comments, I chose.... all 4!!! That's right, Phyllis at Shabby in the City, Jennifer at Jenn's Nook, Felicia at Fluffy Flowers and Mary at Across the Pond will all receive this packet or one similar to it(there will be slight variations in paper as these are mostly one of a kind sheets). In the words of Gomer Pyle, "CONGRATULATIONS, CONGRATULATIONS, CONGRATULATIONS!!". The 5 of us may be the only ones that read this but if you are not one of us 5 and you hate that you missed out on this, I will be doing another giveaway very soon, so you have to comment from now on. If you girls will send me your addresses, I will be sending these out Fedex on Monday. My email is missmollycottage@yahoo.com. I promise to be more diligent in blogging now that school is starting back on Monday and hopefully I will regain some of my lurkers.

Friday, August 3, 2007

Giveaway Update

I know there are alot of lurkers out there so I will extend the drawing to tomorrow, Sat. the 4th at 3:pm eastern time. We have open house at my 3 yr. olds preschool tonight so make sure you leave a comment on the giveaway post to enter the drawing. When I return tonight I will post the pic of the goodies.

Knitting Pics

Here are some pics of my wrap that I have been working on, as well as a pic from Louisa Harding's Hummingbirds book that the pattern is from. I want to do the colors in her book as well but these pinks and greens were so pretty in the shop I had to try them. I have finished the knitting but still have to weave in the ends and tie the tassels on the bottom. As soon as I get that done I will post a pic of me wearing it. Don't forget to leave a comment on the post before this one"Giveaway" so that I can draw a winner on Friday.

Monday, July 23, 2007


I have been a bad blogger lately due to VBS at church. It was a great week, 23 kids saved, but I am so glad it is over!! So happy in fact that I want to give a wallpaper packet away. Leave a comment on this post and I will draw at least one winner on Friday the 3rd. The packet contains 30 sheets of wallpaper( most of them 12x12), vintage poetry and hymns, 2 pages of clip art, old buttons, lace and crocheted flowers. Maybe a few extra surprises in there as well. I have pics of the giveaway but I can't seem to get them to upload so I will post the pictures as soon as I can. Don't forget I will draw the winner on Friday Aug. 3rd.

My 3 boys go back to school on Mon of next week, YAY!! I love being an at home mom but this summer seemed to go on forever. I have been teaching myself knitting which is another reason I haven't been posting, once you get on a roll you don't want to stop. I will be posting pics of that project as well. If you are a knitter or crocheter and would like to get some very pretty patterns go to www.garnstudio.com. I love it all, and the prices on the yarn seems better than getting it here in the states as well.

I will be back after supper to post pictures, I hope.

Scrap Night

Tonight is Scrap Night at church from 6-11pm. Can't wait, this is my "away" time and I have so much to work on. Last month I got 2 pages made, it's kinda hard to complete a page when you are running around looking at every one's "stuff" and talking 90 to nothing! So tonight is SERIOUS BUSINESS, :). Well, I will try to get down to business, anyway. Packing to go is like going on vacation, I have a mess everywhere trying to figure out what I might use. All the girls made fun of me taking 4 trips to the car to haul it all in the last time so I may just make 5 tonight. A friend of mine that sells Stampin Up will be there to set up a booth so I will probably have pics to show you. I can't seem to resist new stamps, even tho' I have drawers full now that I haven't even mounted. It is really very sad, and my husband wants to kill me everytime he sees one.
On to other things, I have been working on an amigurumi bunny. This will be my first attempt at changing a pattern in crochet. I like to play it safe and go exactly by the book most days but the first bunny I did by this pattern turned out so small that I thought I would tweak it a bit. I would really love to know how to make the body and legs as one instead of attaching them at the end so if someone out there can tell me that I would love them forever!! I took pics this morning but can't get them to upload so I will be back later today to show you the bunnies. Maybe someone can tell me what to do to make them cuter!
I hope everyone had a great Independence Day!

Monday, July 2, 2007

I posted pics below of the 4 bookmarks I sent out to my swap partner, Betty and the host of the swap Phyllis. If you 2 haven't gotten these yet you may want to quit reading. I had so much fun making these and thought I would try to make some for my etsy shop. Within the week I will have different styles and different season bookmarks listed so make sure you check back. Of course the Patriotic ones will stay year round because well all of us in the states should be Patriotic all year round not just on Independence Day. I will try to post a few more pics later today, now I am off to the bank.

Tea Party Goodies

I am so late getting these posted but I did want to share what Jessica sent me. We participated in the Partea Time Swap by Risa and Jessica was my partner, she was so prompt in getting my goodies to me. I, on the other hand, was a "deadbeat" and was late getting my gift to her in the mail. I do hope she enjoys hers as much as I have enjoyed mine. The picture is kind of dark but I think if you click on it, you can see a little better. Of course, you will also see that my kitchen was not completely painted at the time. We have new countertops coming in and as soon as all of that is done I will post new pics.

Berry Buckle-YUMMY

I just had to share with you what our dessert was last night. I have a friend that sells Tastefully Simple and she talked me into buying this. It was "YUMMY"!!!! We didn't even have ice cream to go with it and we still wanted to slap somebody. My nephew is here with us today- so I have 7 year old, 6 year old, 3 year old and 2 1/2 year old boys with me today and.. well do I have to explain more. They all had to potty off the front porch when Luke first got here, I guess it was marking the territory or something. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Season's Best Recipes

We will be having the chicken salad like this because the boys would freak out if they saw it like the pic on top. Either way this is so good!!!!

I have been working on my bookmark swap today but now have to start on supper. I thought I would share with everyone exactly what we will be having tonight. Of course both recipes come from Pampered Chef so I have taken their pics for you to see. The main dish is

The Pampered Chef ®Jerk Chicken SaladRecipe
1 tablespoon Garlic Oil or olive oil
1 tablespoon Jamaican Jerk Rub
1 pound chicken tenders
1 medium pineapple
1 red bell pepper
3 green onions (white and light green parts only)
2 heads romaine lettuce
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, drained
6 slices bacon, cooked, drained and crumbled
2 limes
1/3 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons pineapple preserves
In Classic Batter Bowl, whisk together oil and jerk rub with Stainless Whisk. Add chicken tenders; mix well to coat and set aside. Peel pineapple and cut in half lengthwise with Santoku Knife; reserve half for another use. Cut remaining pineapple in half lengthwise and remove core. Slice crosswise into ¼-inch slices. Heat Grill Pan over medium heat 5 minutes. Add chicken; cook 3-5 minutes on each side, turning once. Remove from pan. Add pineapple to pan. Cook 1 minute on each side, turning once; remove from pan. Cut chicken into bite-size pieces using Utility Knife; set chicken and pineapple aside.
Thinly slice bell pepper and green onions on Cutting Board with Measure Cups using Santoku Knife. Arrange 12 large lettuce leaves around Simple Additions® Large Round Platter. Chop remaining lettuce; set vegetables aside. Drain and rinse beans using Strainer; set aside.
For dressing, zest one lime using Microplane® Adjustable Grater. Juice both limes into Small Batter Bowl using Citrus Press. Add lime zest, mayonnaise and pineapple preserves to batter bowl; mix well.
Layer chopped lettuce, beans, bell pepper, chicken, pineapple, bacon and green onions over each lettuce leaf. Drizzle dressing over salad.

Cook's Tip: If desired, 1 pound of boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into strips, can be substituted for the chicken tenders. To microwave bacon, line Medium Bar Pan with sheet of Parchment Paper. Arrange bacon slices in a single layer on bar pan; cover with another sheet of Parchment Paper. Microwave on HIGH 4-6 minutes, checking after each 30-second interval and turning once with Bamboo Tongs. Remove bacon to paper towel-lined plate to drain. For a kid-friendly version of this recipe, prepare recipe as directed, omitting lettuce. Cook 1 pound rotini pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and toss with 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add remaining ingredients; drizzle with dressing and toss gently.

The second recipe is this:

The Pampered Chef ®Lime-Berry Mousse TrifleRecipe
4-5 limes
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 container (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
3 cups assorted fresh berries, such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries
1 frozen prepared pound cake (16 ounces), thawed
1 pint lime sherbet, softened
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Additional berries for garnish (optional)
Slice two limes using Ultimate Mandoline fitted with v-shaped blade; set aside. Using Microplane® Adjustable Grater, zest remaining limes to measure about 1 tablespoon zest; juice limes into Easy Read Measuring Cup using Citrus Press to measure 1/2 cup juice.
In Classic Batter Bowl, whisk cream cheese, condensed milk, lime juice and zest with Stainless Whisk. Attach open star tip to Easy Accent® Decorator, fill with about 1/2 cup of the whipped topping and set aside. Gently fold in remaining whipped topping until smooth with Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Slice strawberries with Egg Slicer Plus®. Place berries in Small Batter Bowl.
Cut pound cake into 1-inch cubes with Bread Knife. To assemble trifle, place half of the pound cake cubes into bottom of Trifle Bowl. Top with half of the sherbet using Small Scoop; spread evenly. Top sherbet with half of the berries and half of the cream cheese mixture. Arrange lime slices in a circular pattern against inside of bowl to garnish. Repeat layers one time with remaining pound cake cubes, sherbet, berries and cream cheese mixture.
Pipe whipped topping rosettes around rim of trifle using decorator. Coarsely chop almonds using Food Chopper; sprinkle over top of trifle before serving. Garnish with additional berries, if desired.

Swaps and Such

I rec'd my Travel Swap gift this weekend and wanted to show you what Carole made for me. Some of her pics are below this post and the ones above are some of the pages from the book I made for her. She is taking a trip to Italy this year so I hope that she can use this to document her trip. I told her that I was working for a trip with Pampered Chef(trip for 4 to D.C. or trip for 2 to London) and she made the perfect book to add all of my pics and notes to. I love it!!! Thanks so much Carole!!!! I have also included a pic of a visitor that we had yesterday. Don't know that you can see it very well but the snake was climbing the front porch post to get to a birds nest in the corner. You can see part of his body(he was abt. 4 ft. long) and he did manage to get a couple of birds before I got him down. Needless to say my 3 boys were freaking and screaming abt. how COOL it all was. YUCK!!!! I was inside taking this pic thru a rained on window so that is why it looks so bad. It was too hard to hold the camera, rake and an ax to get a good pic for you, but I am sure everyone understands.

Hope to post more later, I still have to take pics of my Partea Time Swap gift and what I sent off. Y'all have a great day!!!!

Monday, June 18, 2007

Earlier today I visited this blog and saw her slide show. I thought it was cool so I attempted to make my own but now can't figure out how to fix it. I want it moved over to the side but my brain is just not working that way today. A lot of the pics that you see are on my blog already but I did add one of my mom. This was taken in 2005 at her 40th class reunion in Jacksonville, North Carolina. My dad was working in Illinois at the time so my Uncle was her date and I think it was the best time she had ever had. "God works in Mysterious Ways." My mom had a very low self esteem and always felt that she was not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, outgoing enough..... and she was so nervous abt. this reunion. My Uncle Marshall(her sister's husband) is a complete "Ham" in public(well, anywhere) and I really believe God worked it so that he would be the one to take her to the only reunion she had been to. She talked abt. every moment that happened for days after she got home. When I was a baby she had to have her knee caps removed due to the bones rubbing against each other(yes, I am so old that they didn't have knee replacement surgery). After her reunion she decided that she would try to have the surgery so that she could walk steadier and not feel so limited in what she could do. She had the surgery in mid Oct. 2005 and was the best rehab pt. they had ever had, she was so proud of herself and so upbeat. One week after the surgery she started bleeding(diverticulitis) and on Nov. 28th 2005 she passed away from all of the complications with it. I miss her every single day and I know that this post is a little bit of a downer but I want to say that no matter how people get on your nerves or drive you crazy, make sure you let them know that you love them every single day!! I also wanted everyone to see how God works, I really believe he gave her that reunion time as a special moment for her and best of all my younger brother accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior in August of 2006. It is something she prayed for everyday and thru her death his heart opened. I know my mom has at least one extra crown in Heaven today and that is what I wanted to share with you. You never know how your actions will affect someone else, so please tell everyone that Jesus loves them and that you do as well. They may have just needed that and you may be the only person that tells them.

Check out my Slide Show!

Latest Projects

I have finally gotten the collage added to my etsy shop and I have added one of the new journals there as well. There are several more to take pics of and add that I will try to get to tonight. I have a booth at our local market on Sat. and everything will be going with me so if you are interested in a certain item please let me know.

On to something else to gab abt., my 3 year old loves to surprise us with the things that come from his mouth. His new kick is singing to a commercial that we heard on the radio. The commercial sounds like Larry the Cable Guy being asked if he was to try out on American Idol what would he sing. His response, "Lord have mercy how'd she get them britches on, with all that honky tonk....." and so now you know. He also watched part of Shrek in the last few weeks so we have, "I like big butts...." to go with the first stanza and somehow he knows that honky tonk and butt is the same. Go figure, I can't make him understand "NO" to save my life but he hears those lyrics ONCE and immediately gets them. Will I ever figure this parenting thing out?!? Any experts out there?

Tuesday, June 5, 2007

I have been busy, busy, busy with getting ready for the Sat. Market here but wanted to show you some of what I have been doing. My Pampered Chef business has kept me busy as well so I know I have been lax in posting but I promise it is nuts here!
Crocheting flowers is a never ending endeavor but I did manage to use an old 9x16 clipboard to collage. I will be adding it to etsy when I can get a better pic of it.
I also need to post pics of my Tea Swap and my Travel Swap goodies so I better get back to taking pics and getting the boys off to the movies. They are leaving with their Granny to see Shrek the Third and I don't know who is more excited, me or them!!!!

"Runnin like a chicken..."

well, you know the rest. I haven't posted for ages but all three boys are out of school and let's just say there is no "me" time. I have been working on a few items to put on etsy so hopefully tonight I can get them loaded. I picked up my crochet and have been making a mad dash to finish flowers to list and now my left arm feels as tho' I should wack it off.

I have faithfully been reading everyone's posts and working on my swaps so if you are waiting for something please know that I am going as fast as I can!

Will be back later with some pics and I do hope you haven't moved on without me.

Birthin' Babies

Chandler and Griffin(the big brothers)
The birthday boy, himself!!
Luke, the birthday boys cousin

Saturday was my youngest son's 3rd birthday. It seems like yesterday that we went out to eat Mexican(lots of cheese dip) and I promptly went into labor. Just ponder on that a moment and you will understand how horrified I was. As soon as we got to the hospital I informed the nurse that I had just eaten Mexican, to which she replied, "It will be ok, you won't be the first and you won't be the last." My problem was I didn't want to be the in-between either. My contractions were slow and lasted all thru the night, meanwhile they never let me get out of bed.UGH! The new Dr. on call came in during the early morning hours and of course this had to be the only Dr. in the practice that I had not seen on rotation. Not only that but he is my age!!!! I can deal with the older ones but my age? YUCK!!! I am very modest and this was just adding to the humiliation that I expected to go thru during the delivery, if you know what I mean. He checked my progress and told me that it would still be at least 4 hours and that he had another pt. ready across the river at the other hospital in town, he would go deliver her baby and be back in time for mine. He literally stepped out into the hall, maybe 2-3 min. passed and I had to push. My husband, of course thought I was crazy and it was just the Mexican food talking. But oh no, I mean I had to push!! My husband ran out into the hall, the Dr. still standing outside my door making notes and tells everyone what is going on. It seemed like forever before nurses, my husband and the Dr. come back in( I did tell you I was horrified, right?). In walks the Dr. with this contraption on his head, full length plexi-glass face shield that went to mid chest. I COULD HAVE DIED!!!!!! I mean I had been beggin' for an enema but they don't do that anymore they said, it will be fine, they said. I wish that we had remembered the camera because this story does not do this justice. Needless to say, I only had to push once, an 8 lb 11 oz baby boy flew out and I never asked abt. anything else. TOO HORRIFIED!!!

Well here it is 3 years later, Brady's 3rd birthday and we were going to Kangaroo Bob's but he insisted on Chucky E. Cheese. Did I tell you, he loves Mexican and you need to read a few posts back abt. what he said with the glasses on. Here are some pics of the 3 boys as well as my nephew. I hope you enjoyed the story above and make sure you never eat Mexican before delivery!!!
