Praise the Lord I'm finally finished with my antibiotics! It seems like I've been on them for ever. The good news out of all this is now that the sinus infection seems to be over my headaches are less and my migraine medication is back on track!  If I don't have them consistently maybe I can actually get some writing done now??? At least let's hope so! In other news yesterday I applied for my passport! Yay me !  so you know what this means #HEARTIES you may have some company if we end up having a second reunion in Canada!... Yes I know I'm a #HEARTIES and  have been for a long time but I am also #FansofBeilevePictures so if or when a reunion happens, and I am accepted to go, I will have a dual identity. :-) I've already talked it over with my parents and we  have decided I am going to go even if I can't do some of the activities .There's always sightseeing, or writing to busy myself with. I'd rather go and have the once-in-a-lifetime experience then not go at all. I really feel guilty about not submitting my    information last year to possibly go. I won't let that happen again if the opportunity arises if I'm able to go and no matter what I'm able to do or not do I will still be crossing a lot of things off my bucket list! :-) and if you read my blog at all you pretty much have figured out what those things are already !

Life

My heart broke to Pieces yesterday when I heard of Patty Duke's death. As many as you have seen from my previous articles and or blogs classic television is something that I hold very dear and Patty Duke was a part of that whole experience I enjoyed as a child at my grandmother's house. She always had the old movies sitting around that we could play in the VCR and my mother knew they were safe for us to watch. My heart goes out to the Duke Family and friends as they grieve their loss.

Some artistic fun

Those of you who have read my previous blog as of late I talked about getting my new camera and why that was so important to me. I'm excited to report that I now have the equipment so I run that camera myself . 500 members and Counting!!

Life

Hi everyone!  I realize it's been a super long time since I've written last. I apologize, things have been really busy. First I went on a two-week vacation ,while on vacation I was sick with a bad sinus infection..still wasn't feeling well by the time I came home and realized I had come down with a very severe sinus infection which led to bronchitis which led to flaring up my asthma which I normally do not have anymore pretty much since my childhood. So yes I have been feeling under the weather for about a month I am finally back on track and feeling well ! Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers during this time.

Fans of believe pictures news

I'm sorry because of me being under the weather I've been terribly neglectful of my articles this season but rest assured I will catch up and you will get your discussion articles! :-) As far as the fans of believe pictures Facebook group I could not be happier! We are turning into one big happy family. I have been on there more than anything even during vacation. :-) What  can I say it's one of my favorite places to be talking to all of you. We are nearing 500 members and that makes me so excited especially since we don't always have contest or different activities on our page. I try my best, but all that can be very difficult when you're just one person. I have to say this though I am grateful for all of you who are willing to start your own conversations on fan art and other activities on the page so it never seems quiet even when I am working. Being an author who owns her own company has its advantages, it means I can have your page up all day long and if I'm not doing anything I will join in conversation with you even if it's just a quick hello. We have had a few contests this week which was my first time really doing much but I'm excited to say that it has added many more members to our group that we can now become friends with. That makes me think of the point of family TV in the first place getting together. I think of this as our virtual dinner table. :-)

In other fans of believe pictures news

I want to say thank you to Brian Bird for signing my “Captive”DVD jacket for me, it now hangs in my office below the script I received a few  Christmases ago. In related news, I recently won a Hearties  contest on the Hearties page! :-) it was a slogan contest to get one of the magazines from Soap Opera Digest that the cast members signed. My first #HEARTIES contest I've ever won and I've been on the #HEARTIES page since they started out at five hundred people….I was so excited I couldn't even believe my eyes! So this too will go on my wall next to the rest of my autographs for inspiration as I work on my novel. :-) I want to thank the #HEARTIES Admins. who do all the hard work that they do getting  contests -togethers etc. I know how hectic and busy  life can be the #HEARTIES are lucky to have you ! Also I wanted to thank you for letting us help and participate in your trending activities! :-) I know as a hearty I would normally be doing it anyway but I've been encouraging my group to join you as well so I hope this helps. It's been exciting to watch as you the Hearties have trended and broken records every week! I couldn't be happier to be a part of that.

Fans of believe pictures group latest information.

Okay here's the deal .We are getting a lot more members and fast, this is a good thing but I want to make sure that you all have your information so you can share it with others as well pass on the word. We have a Twitter, we have a Facebook group, we have a website ,we have a Pinterest, and we have a YouTube... Well almost I'm still fixing that youtube page as we speak, so I haven't given you guys the link for that yet. If you cannot find the link for any of these things please feel free to ask me at anytime I'm willing to help you find it. Also if you are having a mixed #HEARTIES party with fans of believe pictures members we want to see your photos! Please feel free to put them on the Facebook page at any time and you may be asked if it's okay to use your photographs for the website. You can say no it's not mandatory. :-) also if there's a group of people from Fans of believe pictures group near you?don't be afraid to get together .I do with my friends occasionally but we haven't been able to get together lately ,hopefully I will see them soon. If you want to get together with a group of people from Fans of believe  pictures or find out if people live near you go ahead and ask them. When you decide to get together post in the Fantastic times discussion area,if you don't know where that is please ask and I will find it for you. You will see me post from time to time in the Fantastic times area either that or I will let you know that I did on the main wall.

My work

Since I'm an author and I have a gift store I travel to craft shows around the cities so I will post those when I have one so that  if you are nearby you can come and meet me in person. I like to talk about fans of believe  pictures even when I'm out at these vendors events . It would be great to see any of you! So far I don't have any shows coming up this summer is usually really quiet for me it is fall and winter that I do some of these events.

Contest time on fans believe pictures.

I really put my thinking cap on lately and I've come up with some great contest ideas well at least I hope you guys think they're great. :-) anyway once we get finish with the 500-member challenge contest there are more coming not a lot but at least a few. Can't wait to share those with you down the road! What is it I said on the Facebook group last week?... The Hearties have their crayons and I have my technology lol! :-) you know party admins one of these days we should get together by get together I mean online of course! but we should get together and put our thinking caps on and maybe do a joint contest just a thought.

Artistic fun

Well I have some awesome news which maybe you've heard it already especially if you're on my private Facebook but I got the camera I've been saving up for for 6 months! I've been wanting this particular type of camera for years actually but only decided to put my foot down on my budget and save to get one especially since I'm going to Walnut Grove to see Karen Grassley this summer. I wanted to make sure that I had a good camera this time that would cause problems so poor people waiting behind me would not have to wait another second. I know how it feels to be a superfan from time to time even though I tried to remain and have some professionalism about me sometimes it's hard. :-) anyway I digress and if you want to hear about the camera I think I've written about it on and off so check back in the Box. :-) so I thought if I'm going to get a decent camera that I am going to learn how to use it. Well I shouldn't say learn... I do know how to use the camera for the most part, I did take photography classes in college. but the thing is  I'm disabled and my hands don't work the way I like them too. Holding the camera so It doesn't fall ,not dropping the camera. not breaking the camera within the first few days of owning it holding a camera is impossible for me ! why do I like photography ? When I look up and see something new I see something different that people around me don't see. Sometimes not always but sometimes I like to think outside the box so it's frustrating when I can't take pictures of something I see that I like. Well I think I might have solved this problem over Easter weekend my family and I sat down after dinner and looked through things online adaptive technology for cameras and such. I found something, the type of camera mount for my camera . I'm excited to get it. It's durable, made by a photography company who does adaptive technology ,so I hope it works. Not everything that's says it's handicap accessible were made for a disabled person means it's automatically going to work for that particular person that buys it. Everybody's disability is a little different so I'm excited at the prospect of this working but it doesn't mean it will ,so pray it does! I'd love to finally be able to take the pictures I see in my mind when I see a certain site or something happen that needs to be frozen in a moment for all to see. I'm not saying I'm the greatest photographer in the world ,and I don't know if I ever will be, but if I don't try I won't know it all.

The second piece of this great news can't come without the first that's why the long explanation I do photo art kind of like people that do the fan art that you see on our page just for an example. I'm self-taught since 2004 and I've done photo art since then but I haven't done much of it. Being a writer takes up a lot of my time  & I do the Fans of believe pictures page in my free time, because I want to  feel awareness and family television is very important to all of us! When I'm not doing these things I'm usually with family and friends. Some of you have mentioned my fan art on the Fans of believe pictures Facebook page from time to time and I want to thank you for your very kind words and Mr. Byrd for being so gracious to let me use his wonderful pictures. I just realized a few months ago, though I really wanted the photos to be my photos, it's never been my photos that I have done . I love seeing what other people see through the lens but I want to see what's through the lens for myself, I hope this camera will be plenty more than just wants. that's my hope for it anyway... we'll see what God has planned. I also was hoping this would help me create more of my own covers when it comes to my novels, the price of stock photos and some friends that are good photographers but like I said sometimes I just want it to be my photo.

Walk of faith LLC news

We had a total of 6 new members on our Facebook page or Bookmark Facebook page to be exact this week! It's nice to have you and I hope you are enjoying the shopping. :-) We have a new store in case you hadn't noticed. Things are a little different on every one of my pages, which is the Walk of Faith LLC main page and walk of Faith LLC bookmark page. We had to make a page just strictly for the bookmarks because that's what people would look for most of the time so that's why there's 2 different ones but they belong to the same company. :-) anyway we have a new store! You go on our main page or our Facebook page that says shopping or shop now and it will bring you to our store .We have created different sections like a regular store now so you can go straight to what you're looking for other than looking through hundreds of pictures like you did on the bookmark page when you first started out. If any of you have any questions at any time please just message me on one of those pages! We are looking forward to serving you in this new organized way. :-)

Here is the link directly to our store in case you don't want or are not fans of our Facebook page or pages but you should be! :-) ;-) to keep referring back to the link maybe even bookmark the page. :-)

Several of you from the Fans of believe pictures page have wanted me to ado contest for an autograph novel or something similar from me I had told you that I was not comfortable doing this on our page  because they are not directly related. However I did create a contest and put it on my personal page as well as the Walk of Faith LLC Facebook pages.  Unfortunately it's a little late for yours  tomorrow at midnight but if I am asked again I just may create another contest down the road so just so you know don't be afraid to ask. :-) thank you for all those who have entered this particular contest and thank you for the support is always appreciated.

  • Well I know that's a lot of information at one time but it's been a long time since I've written to you guys and I again apologize for the long wait. I promise you will get your discussion article for the fans of believe pictures people. I'm working on another one tomorrow as we speak. I hope you are enjoying our different format this year. I haven't really heard much feedback .Don't Be afraid even if you don't like it let me know. We're always looking to tweek the article format until we find just the right one. Anyway I'm headed off to bed so have a good night everyone and maybe I'll even write again tomorrow. :-) I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!

London legacy news

It was reported on Facebook today that it is Karen Grassle 's birthday.  Karen Grassle was known as Caroline Ingalls on Little House on the Prairie for 9 years approx. I am blessed with the opportunity to joined her in Walnut Grove with several other fans who are affectionately known as the bonnet heads. I am included in this generation and I am proud to say it is much like this generations Hearties  for When Calls the Heart! I'm eager to see Ms.Grassley, although I will be just another fan in the crowd I am still happy to be there. :-) it is an honor just to get to say hello! Speaking of my time this summer that I plan to spend in the small town of Walnut Grove Minnesota, I got an email the other day from my college friends mother who lives out in Walnut Grove herself. She knew I was coming to see Ms.Grassley this summer ,so when she was talking to her daughter one of my best friends from college she mention that my friend could meet me that weekend. I don't have any information on whether she is actually going to be there because her mother never emailed me back. I hope that this will happen! I have not seen my friends since 2004 the day of her wedding and it would be nice to finally meet her  children! I also mentioned to you that I'm doing a Landon  legacy article part two when I go out to Walnut Grove Minnesota this summer and her parents have agreed to do an interview being they have lived in Walnut Grove for quite some time. So it makes me excited that their daughter might be able to join us because then she will be able to join the interview about living in historic town which will be my angle for the next article. I'm still currently working on my questions, so if any  of you have any input or ideas that you would like to share with me please feel free to do so on Facebook or in the common area of this blog. Thanks for taking the time to share your lives with me and reading about my adventures as a writer! Have a good night everyone.

Okay, so it’s been  a really long time since I wrote last time sorry! Between my schedule trying to get the bookmark site back up and running as well as trying to find craft shows I can participate in it's been making my week's pretty busy these days. Or to be more clear it takes my mind away from writing whether it be fictional or blogging. Speaking of blogging have you guys checked out our new website yet?  Well I guess it wouldn’t be called exactly new since I have mentioned it several times ,but I'm excited about it and like every website it's a work in progress. It doesn't have everything the Facebook group has and a Facebook group doesn't have everything that the website has so I encourage you to check out both on daily basis and don't forget to join the conversations on either  Facebook or website. I just renewed it for another year so you're stuck with us! #FansofBeilevePictures people! Or more to the point you are stuck with me :-).

Fans of believe Pictures  news

Today I spent most of the afternoon and evening with a friend from the #FansofBeilevePictures she is also a member of the #HEARTIES it is always great when we find a chance to get together! This is the first time I invited her over to my home which is an apartment in my hometown. Today it was the two of us , usually it  is a group of us that gets together I just felt like it was the night for two people rather than a group :-) not only did we talk about our beloved show When Calls the Heart which is always an important topic when we get together ;-) but we talked about life too. I believe that that is an important part of the #HEARTIES as well as the #FansofBeilevePictures groups. It's not just about TV shows or movies it's about friends getting together and connecting both on social media and outside of social media the most important type of connection that I believe happens is in person.  I know I use the computer for most of my life because it's available to me as far as voice activation and it makes things easier for me as a disabled person. I try not to get too lazy and losing the personal connection like so many other people do these days. We all bury our heads in our phones or tablets and our computers you heard me say this before in a few of my articles that I've written in the past. The personal connections and friendships and bonds that come together through whatever means including our group has continued to grow without a TV or computer or a tablet. Most of you if not all of you who are reading this right now either you had the chance to go to the Hearties reunion or you didn't but either way you have found ways to make yourself personally connected with the people around you. This is what Believe  Pictures  is all about as well as When Calls the Heart family bonding and connections with one another so we can stop burying our heads in social but the personal connection is the most important it seems when it comes to the #HEARTIES. #FansofBeilevePictures :-) it's true we still have friends and bonds through social media but it is shows  like When Calls the Heart has inspired us to crave those  personal connections as well! :-) #FansofBeilevePictures & #Hearties groups are proof of this!

I know, I know, I should be ashamed of myself it's been a very long time since I've written. I apologize for that! But between watching the live feeds of the #HEARTIES reunion , and changing the levels in my migraine medication I just have not found the time nor the energy to write in my blog I am sorry! Now that things seem to be back on track hopefully I will get to you in a more timely manner in the days to come. Today I had the pleasure of finally getting the chance to order my friend Camille’s novels. I'm so excited! I've been wanting to order them since the last one came out but just hadn't gotten to it. As of today they are on their way autographed and all! Thank You Camille I cannot wait to share them with my family!

It was so much fun watching the live feeds from the Hearties  reunion. I am so glad that the committee took the care and time to make sure we could sort of be there even though we couldn't be there. Please know that it was much appreciated! I also would like to mention that I wanted to be there with all my heart no pun intended :-) I was glad that I didn't plan the trip due to the rainy muddy weather, my wheelchair would not have held up much like it doesn't hold up for me in rainy muggy weather for the Renaissance Festival either which has a similar Road like the road into Hope Valley. I was so excited to see all of your pictures and listen to all of your stories thank you for sharing them with us! Joyce thank you for the snapshots you found of Mr Bird and Mr Landon together it is much appreciated. :-) my dear Hearties friends I do have one request next time there is something like that if one of you could get a single picture of just them together I would appreciate it. Had I been thinking ahead of time I would have asked one of you to do so. It's my fault for not thinking but thank you to those of you who have been messaging me some photos here and there. Like I said before it is appreciated! It just adds to your stories of the fun that you had while  in our beautiful little town Hope Valley. I'm really hoping to win that autographed poster contest by the way :-) it would look very nice in my living room as well as any other , I'm sure ,but since I have a movies / TV themed living room it would fit perfectly. :-) just sayin... ;-)

Many of you on the Little House on the Prairie reunion Facebook Group have been asking me how I feel about Paramount Pictures rebooting Little House on the Prairie for the big screen... Well I haven't said much in the group that I am involved in on Facebook. I will say this, I have said many times before how I feel about any kind of reboots when it comes to the classic TV shows and or movies..The sentimental feelings I have for the original Little House on the Prairie makes me so sad about this reboot that I have no actual words to convey how I feel about it. Many of you have asked why don't I give it a chance I will say the same thing I said to the people on Facebook I have seen similar TV about Laura Ingalls Wilder's life that mirror the TV show so in other words they have already rebooted it on a small scale before.I have always been disappointed by these movies! it's not that I want to judge this already but at the same time my heart feels that since they have already tried to reboot it in TV movie format and I haven't enjoyed those in the past I'd have to say that more than likely it will be the same whether it is on the big screen or the small screen. I know they're trying to revive it for a new generation and I can respect that! But in my opinion if you're going to do that when it comes to the classic it should just be rerun on TV. If I'm going to say my piece about it like I just did above I also have to say this if you enjoy the reboots of any film or TV show I can respect that this is just strictly my opinion!! I feel very strongly about the legacy that the original little house on the Prairie has left on so many lives. If or I should say when it is indeed rebooted I hope it will touch lives in the same way it just won't be the same for me. On that note I think I am finished for the evening I hope everyone has a good Friday and a great weekend with their families.

I spent a good portion of my afternoon watching live feed videos on periscope of the Hearties family reunion courtesy of MPCA and Brad Krevoy. It was wonderful seeing all your smiling faces!  I would like to say thank you to Brian Bird, Lori Loughlin, Janette Oke and Robin for including us in on  question and answer session of the reunion! It was the next best thing to being there. It was also fun to see how excited and happy everyone was! I especially learned a lot of information from Robins part of the Q&A. So thank you for that… so I am curious to see if Mr Bird is put in the hot seat for a Q&A as well. I also would like to say thank you to those of you who have been sharing your photos on Hearties  Facebook page. Please feel free to post your photos and stories on the fans of Believe  pictures page as well. :-) we are all in this together. ;-) we cannot wait to hear more of your stories throughout the weekend!

Question ..what was in your favor bags at the luncheon I could not see on the video?

Life

Today a friend of mine came to visit , I haven't seen her since I first moved into my apartment here in North Branch so we had so much to catch up on! Had  a great time and I'm glad she could come I can't wait till we can get together again. :-) As we talked we realize how much things have changed in my life since 2008. It's amazing the things we take for granted or don't realize until we say them out loud. :-) have you ever had that experience?

Well I think that is it for this evening we will chat again soon have a good night everyone!

Ugh another one! Stop making remakes of classics and ruining them! Yes I'm making a snap judgment, of course I haven't seen the remake yet,nobody has but you know me and how I feel about remakes of classics. Just because they have a new generation , doesn't mean it needs redone.  Some things should just be left alone. Sorry I know I'm venting but it is so irritating to see all these remakes  coming out and like I said above I know that they're probably trying to just get a new generation interested but then we change  the classic . I don't know maybe I'm being too harsh what do you guys think about this whole thing?
