I Always Have Good Intentions!

I always have good intentions but life always seems to get in the way.  A few days after my last post we found out that my husband had colon cancer.  He had surgery within a couple of days and then did 6 months of chemo.  The chemo lasted a few weeks longer due to blood counts or way to sick.  Things are starting to get back to normal now, hubby is getting stronger every day.  We even took a trip to Michigan to visit our grandsons!!

Now that life is starting to get back to normal, I can now get back to crafting!!!  I've tried to do a few things these past months, but it's been pretty much impossible to do anything when hubby depended on me for everything.  I have so many things I want to do, but Christmas cards are going to be first.  I feel like a little kid, excited to get started!  I won't be able to start until Monday, need to clean the house and finish decorating (what little I do decorate).  I did decorate my little wooden tree and put out a few things already, but still need a couple more things.  With dog tails I can't really put too much stuff out unless it's high enough their tails can't knock it off.

This is a picture of my hubby's last chemo and of course the boys (with Santa).

I will be back soon and will have pictures of what I've been doing!!

Happy Friday!

You gotta love Fridays, even when you don't work Fridays are awesome!  Been busy as always and that's always a good thing.  Finally even got rain today and it's supposed to rain until Monday.  Could do without the wind, but I guess you can't have everything.  We really need the rain here in California and we may get up to 6 inches by Sunday, hoping we don't float or blow away (winds up to 65 mile an hour)!!

Been crafting, I actually got the 2 grandsons valentine cards done!!  They're kind of cute and as usual I was in a rush because I need to mail them so they're not late.  Of course while I was looking for valentine stuff (embellishments, paper, stamps, etc.), I was finding all kinds of lost treasures that I forgot I had and now want to play with.  

See, I've been crafting.  You can always tell when I'm creating because I can't create without making a total mess and dragging tons of everything out in case I need it.

Yes, I use jars for everything and 2 of them have candy!!

Here are the valentine cards I made for Liam and Graisen.  I don't think they know my blog address and I don't believe their mother follows it either, so I can post them without spoiling the surprise.

This one is for Liam - Paper, stamps and chipboard frame are Close To My Heart.

This one is for Graisen

Have my tables and desk cleaned up already and am going to create/play all weekend.  It's been a long time since I've been able to spend the whole weekend in my studio and am so looking forward to it.  I'm even thinking about getting into a couple of challenges and I never do them!!

So have a great weekend and hoping to post more finished projects this weekend!!

Gone Too Long!

Time get away from everyone and I'm no exception.  It's been way too long since I've made a post, but things are looking up and I plan on spending more time crafting and less time messing around with everything else in my life.  LOL

My craft studio is better, but still a mess.  I'm Like everyone else and when you start reorganizing things you end up finding forgotten treasures and have to play a little.  I did leave my favorite items that I came across out and plan on getting down to business on Wednesday while hubby is out for the day.

Jake our new puppy has gotten big.  He got fixed last week and weighed 47 pounds!!  He is a pretty good little guy and so loving and cuddly, which is why I picked him.  Don't have a recent photo because he can't sit still long enough to get one without being a blur running by!

Millie and Jake on the new bed my mom gave them because her dogs didn't like it.  They're about the same size now, so Jake may end up being huge!

Graisen turned 1 in January and his 1 year photos turned out so cute and I couldn't pick just one to be my favorite (85 photos and they were all adorable).  So here are a couple of my very favorites.  lol

So I am planning on doing another post on Thursday, but if not that means I didn't get to get all crafty on Wednesday and that would be a horrible thing!  lol
