Tomorrow Is The Big Day

Tomorrow is my surgery day, so I will be away from my blog for awhile. I hope that you will check back in about a week to see if I have posted anything.
I know that you all are out there lerking at my blog, but still no comments. What's up with that?
I appreciate any feedback that I receive, so I will know what you would like to see on my blog in the near future.
So come on, please leave me your comments. Give me some ideas of what I should be posting. I want to post things that you all want to see & learn about. I am still learning about this blogging stuff.
Take care & have a wonderful & blessed day.
Hugs, Dee

My News

I thought that I would be able to get a couple more cards done before I had my surgery.
But with all this extra testing & things that I have to get done around the house, there just isn't enough time, sorry.
Plus with all this pain, it makes it hard for me. I have one more day at home, then bright & early Thursday morning, I will be headed to the hospital  which is over 2 hours away from my here. Then here I go again.
Hopefully, I will only be in the hospital for a week or less this time. I hope that this is true, then I can come home & get better where I'd rather be.
I've noticed though that I haven't had any comments recently of what I have posted.
I am hoping when I get better, can craft again & post what I made, you all will start commenting.
I love to get comments so please start leaving them when you look over my blog, it will be greatly appreciated.
That way, I will know what you would like to see here on my blog.
So until after I come back home from my surgery, have wonderful & blessed days.

Happy Mothers Day To All

Hope that all you ladies out there are having a wonderful Mothers Day.
I have to run out for a few things & for more meds for Tom, then when I get back I want to get a little cleaning done.

I have been praying that my little granddaughters, my DIL & oldest son will come & see me. I haven't seen my granddaughters since Christmas. I miss them so much.
I made these cards yesterday to give to both my DIL's plus  an extra one. I forgot to take a pic of the first card before I signed it.
Hope you will like them.
Have a wonderful & blessed day.

Another Step To My New Craft Room

Hello Everyone,

Sorry that I haven't posted for a few days, my DH has been keeping me busy & it isn't easy when I have to deal with my own pain.
I just haven't been in the mood for any crafting, so I am very sorry for no new card.
In place of a new design I have posted a new area in my craft room.

This is where I am keeping my chipboard  letters, which is in the drawers on top.
I have my 2 cuttle bug machines & some ribbon.
In the bottom area, going left to right, first top left cubby are some of my clear stamps from Anna Griffin & Hero Arts, etc.
Next pink canvas drawer holds some containers of silk flowers
Next cream drawer holds unfinished wooden items for the holidays

Next row down from left, that one is embossing folders & Spellbinders folders.
Next the cream drawer holds  some white card stock & assorted 8x8 paper card stock pads
Next pink drawer holds some more wooden things to make &  a can of  sealer from Folk Art & a can of Aleenes Tacky spray
Below on the last row is a drawer container that holds more card stock & the same in next cubby.
The last cubby holds sticker folders & Creating Keepsakes books.

Hope you enjoyed the little tour of this section of my craft room.
Until the next time, hope you all have a wonderful & blessed day.

What Has Been Going On With Me

Hello Everybody,
Boy, have I had one heck of a few days. My DH has been very sick since last week, which I had mentioned before  & yesterday was  well, he had me going crazy. Finally late morning today, he gave in to go to the ER. I wasn't surprised when the doc said that he had pneumonia again. He has such trouble breathing & so he had a breathing treatment, oxygen, antibiotic IV fluids, etc, you get the pic. They asked him to stay overnight, but of course he wanted to go home. I was very surprised that we were only at the ER for 4 hours, since that place was really hopping like always.

On top of all this, my computer gave me problems starting last night & today I lost all my documents & pics that I had downloaded. I have some things backed up on my separate backup system, but do you think I can find the ac plug to hook it backup to my computer, NOT. So I am starting from scratch.

I had planned on posting a new card, but it has to wait. I am hoping that it will be tomorrow.
I'll tell you, my life is never ever dull & sometimes I wish it was. I could really use a break.

I really hope that I am not depressing anyone, cause that's the last thing I would want to do.
I just wanted to let you all know what is going on, why I haven't posted something new & I guess to show others that they are not alone out there, when they have problems too.
God Bless Everyone who is going through their trials & tribulations.

Until tomorrow, I hope that you will have a wonderful & blessed day.

The Mystery Birthday Card

Hello to you & how was your weekend?
I mostly rested & relaxed. The past week was exhausting trying to take care of my DH while he was sick with the flu. I'm not in the greatest shape so it can be difficult for me to take good care of someone that is sick, but I did try.


I thought that I would share all my beautiful handmade birthday cards with all my friends which I got last week.
Aren't they pretty & so wonderful? Some of them came from my friends at  the AC Moore forum.

There is a little mystery with one of the cards that I received from someone. The card has a mason jar with a bumble bee & she also used some flower soft at the bottom. I just love that stuff & some day I am going to get some for me.
It wasn't signed, but it came with a little gift set of stamps & a ink pad. It  was so thoughtful, but I would really like to know who sent the card & gift to me.
If this person  reads my blog, I would be so grateful if you could let me know who you are

Until tomorrow, hope that you have a wonderful & blessed day.
