So I have been working non stop well for me a least it is non stop on cards and projects that need to get done over the next few weeks. Sitting down in my scrap area and creating has been a wonderful distraction from my everyday life and worries. Here are a few projects that I have completed over the past week or two. Sorry I don't have the recipes to list. I am usually so meticulous when it comes to things like that but I honestly didn't want to waste a minute of my creative spark.

Life around here has been beyond hectic.  We have had so much health issue wise going on around here that I have been too tired up until this week to do much of anything.  I did manage to get a few cards made this week and hope to work on more tomorrow.  I will post them as soon as possible. I worked on a card for an upcoming hop yesterday for a hop as well as a card kit for a lady I work with.. She wants to make a wedding card so I put a kit together to help her with that.  Will give it to her today.

I'm back

Well a week with 4 friends three of whom are from Georgia, Arizona, and North Dakota was wonderful. We had a lot of good times sight seeing around Akron and Canton as well as a lot of new places to eat, movie to see and laughter to share. I no sooner got my life back in order somewhat before a week of work flew by and Easter was here. It was a wonderful day with my family. Ham Swiss steak and mashes potatoes and all the Easter fixings. My mom is spring cleaning out their crawl space in the basement and apparently I still had a few things left after about 16 years of not living there. But this time it was well worth looking into. I have been wanting old sheet music for making cards with and low and behold there was a magazine of sheer music as well as an old book of sheer music from when my mom was a young girl learning how to play the piano. Not going to reveal how long ago that was but the pages of the book are just the right colour of old. :) we also found a stack of my old 78's from the 70's and the 80's. They are still in awesome shape and for my birthday my mom mentioned maybe getting a stereo like she has that plays records, CDs etc. That will be a fun gift to get.
