What a crazy week I have had.  Worked 2 evenings at Vacation Bible School to fill in for my daughter who needed to make a quick unexpected trip to the Denver area to pick up her nephew Evan so as to bring him back here to spend the summer with us.  We are all excited about that as he is an absolute delight to have around and is growing up way too fast as far as this grandma is concerned!

I also had to prepare for a Stamping event where a group of us gathered to share three dimensional ideas to make together.  That was a lot of fun but oh boy was I tired by the time I got home.  Crashed early last night and again this afternoon after church. 

So just in these 2 brief paragraphs you get more ideas of names for me.  The most commonly referred to names here would be wife, mother, grandmother, servant, friend, stamper, crafter, and sleepyhead!  I will soon be posting pictures of Stampin'UP ideas of my creations and sharing the ones we made yesterday.  Also just need to find some down time for me and my Lord.

KTMYLDY actually stands for a name bestowed upon me some years back by my dear and wonderful husband, going on 26 years now.  My name is Kay, but for whatever reason he dubbed me Katie, "Katie his lady" as he puts it!  It's odd he fell upon the Katie as it immediately brought to mind memories dating back to HS and one young fellow, who always was considered rather odd, took it upon himself to call me Katherine.  Now I really and truly resented his calling me that.  When he did, it would always push buttons of temper, anger and frustration at the sound of his voice calling me Katherine.  Now during this same period of time one of our teachers, Mr. Scheerer, would on occasion call me Katrinka.  This handle also did not quite fit my idea of decorum, after all my name is Kay, and it also happens to be my middle name, gone by it all my life.
Now you know how this name came about and I have grown very fond of this sweet endearment and have taken it on with much more grace than some of my other odd names attached to my personna through out my life. 

Through this blog you will learn much more not only about me but others of my friends and family whom I all love dearly.  Even the ones who border closely to insanity at times in my perceptions!

Through this blog, I pray I will be entertaining in my words, gracious always, and lovingly honest in my perceptions.

Have a great and wonderful day, feel free to share your thoughts on names and how we come by them it would be interesting to hear some of your tales!
