Thanksgiving Thieves

Posted by Debby Burrows on

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I am being pursued  by Thanksgiving Thieves!   Let me explain: More this year than ever,I am bombarded by stores trying to entice me to spend your money sooner and sooner. Walmart announced the death of Black Friday and the birth of a week of specials for the holiday. What! That one day of chaos wasn't enough? Now don't get me wrong, as a Christian business owner, I know that Christmas sales are critical. But in the last year caring for Ed's 86 old mother has taught me that it is good to slow down and focus...

♥DUCK DYNASTY - Faith & Family

Posted by Debby Burrows on

      After a day of running to little league games, summer basketball, lawn work, or just a crazy day at work, you may need to get a glass of lemonade and chill before the next task.

Posted by Debby Burrows on

In our large family, gift giving has been pared down for the adults.

For our family, it has been a year of elder care challenges, college graduations, weddings, career changes, financial hurdles, and a whole host of blessings sprinkled through out. Just this month, in midst of the government shutdown, I was marvelously surprised with a birthday visit from my oldest son and family from Denver. As a government attorney, he, his wife, and two boys were able to 'hide' at our daughter's house for my birthday dinner. Needless to say, it was the best birthday ever!...

Travel again??????

Posted by Debby Burrows on

 As you may not know, we started our business exhibiting at the big Christian music events like Creation East, Creation West, Cornerstone, Spiritwest Coast, and the like. Our summers were spent on the road with our family of five children from the time our youngest was 3 or so. We were able to keep abreast of the happenings in the spiritual kingdom and could test new designs. While the pace was hectic, we were able to meet a lot of you and despite the occasional glitches, it was good for us.  With our youngest a junior in college, our nest...
