Happy Easter

I cased these Easter baskets from another blogger - Dawn from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. Thanks Dawn.  I changed mine up a bit.  I used a different basket and used a scalloped heart.  I think they turned out pretty cute.

So Excited

I got home from work yesterday and my light box and accessories were delivered.  It is great.  It has a storage bag which includes the light box, two lights and four backgrounds.  I can't wait to play and see if it makes a difference in the quality of my photographs.

Hello Everyone

I am going to get creative this weekend. I have done nothing since my surgery and recovery.  I thought when I went back to work it would get better.  No, I am just tuckered out.  However,  I have committed to do a craft show in March with a friend so I need to get busy.  I also have an order from a friend who wants 30 card kits.  I have a lot of work to do but we are supposed to get 6-8 inches of snow this weekend so what better to do than work on cards.  And, if we get what they are calling for early next week I may be snowed in.

I will be posting pictures.  I am excited.  I ordered a light box, lights and background for better pictures.  I am waiting for it to be delivered.  Happy crafting!

May all your resolutions happen.  My only resolution for 2014 is to be healthier.  With all the health scares I have had in 2013 I hope 2014 is better in that respect.  I plan to make better choices and try to work in exercise on my elliptical until I can get out and walk.

Make 2014 a great year!

One More Week of Half Days

Glad my doctor had the forethought to tell me I would be working half days for a month.  It was great to get back and see everyone.  I had so many people stop by and tell me they missed me and are glad I'm back.  I work with great people.  I am working 7 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.  The first week I was ready for a nap when I got home.  I am still tired but it is not as bad as it was in the beginning.  So, back to full-time on 1/6/14.  We will see how it goes.  Hopefully I will be able to do some cards now that Christmas is over.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  Happy New Year to all.

It's Back to Work for Me

I have been released to return to work Monday, 12/9 for half days thru 1/6/14.  I still tire easily so the doctor wants to make sure I don't over do it.  I work 7-11 so I can get home and nap if I need to. 

I am feeling much better and want to get stuff done (why is it we always feel better and want to get things done when it is time to go back to work?)  I am trying to get Christmas cards done.  I ordered the Heartfelt Creations Christmas card kit.  It is awesome.  It gives you card fronts, sayings, etc.  You just add your embellishments.  Love it!

I will post pictures if I ever get them done.

5 Weeks Post Surgery

I am finally starting to feel well enough to go out, other than to the doctor.  Last week I met a friend for dinner.  We spent about 2 1/2 hours together, but I have to tell you it wore me out. This week we are getting together for lunch and then going back to her house to work on cards and our coloring.  We are going to try Prisma colored pencils and of course, we will use our Copics.

Then I am going to have lunch with another friend that I have not seen for several weeks.  I am still sleeping a lot (10-12 hours) but I anticipate that will get better each day as well.

Hopefully I will have some cards to add to my blog after my outing.
