Christmas Card

Wow, what a challenge using a new computer with a new operating system.  But, I finally figured it out.  I cased this card, but changed it somewhat to make it my own.  I used a different embossing folder and added flocking to the mustache and eyebrows.  Hope you all like it.

I Finally Have My Computer Fixed

The last time I posted I thought I would be posting some pictures of my cards; however, my computer started acting up.  Unfortunately, it is a brand new Lenovo computer so I had no idea how to get it working.  I think the grandkids downloaded a virus.  My daughter-in-law, Nikki reset it back to factory settings and it appears to be working well.  I am working on my Christmas card.  As soon as I have one done I will be posting a picture.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.  Mine was quite busy.  I had 23 people, but I am thankful for each and everyone one that was there.  It was a blessed day.

Hello All

I've been gone for quite awhile so I just wanted to let everyone know what is going on with me.  I am going to Chicago to see a specialist to get a new prosthesis (mouth piece).  The one I had made and which cost $2,200 does not fit correctly.  For those that may not know I had a cancerous tumor removed from the roof of my mouth and I now need the mouth piece to talk and eat, so it is pretty important to make sure it fits correctly.

The second thing going on in my life is that my son Josh and his fiancĂ©e Nikki and their 5 kids have moved in with us temporarily.  They bought a house here in Colfax that needs some renovation.  They wanted the kids enrolled in school here so we decided the best bet was to have them move in with us temporarily.  Oh yes, and let us not forget their 3 dogs, one of which is a Rottweiler.  So my house is kind of crazy right now.  I don't always have time to sit and craft. 

I do have some cards that I need to get photographed and posted.  Hopefully, I will get that done here soon and get back in the swing of things.

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!
