to have so many won­der­ful friends. Hon­estly, I am truly touched with all the com­ments and emails I have received this past week. You are all such a won­der­ful group of people. I am heal­ing great and get to have my stitches removed Tues­day. This is when I believe I get my lift­ing and tak­ing it easy restric­tions removed too. Which believe me will not come a sec­ond too soon. I have not felt this good in prob­a­bly 5 years so tak­ing it easy is not an easy task. If any of you have had symp­toms such as the ones I have spo­ken about...

Just a little FYI…

Posted by on Sep 26, 2009 in Delight In Everyday Life | 30 comments

I will not be blog­ging for sev­eral weeks and thought I would give you the heads up as to why. To make a long story short… for the past few years I thought I was lac­tose intol­er­ant. Any­time I drank milk my stom­ach would hurt so I just took myself off all dairy and didn’t have any­more issues. Well in April the Dr. and I thought I had acid reflux… took Nex­ium and all was better. Sun­day I had some ter­ri­ble stom­ach pains that lasted all night but went away. Tues­day evening BAM I was hit with some stom­ach and back pain that would not...

Lottie’s Dress…

The arms on my dress pat­tern are posi­tioned a bit dif­fer­ent than the one cre­ated by Pink Per­sim­mon. So make sure to check out theirs...

Another this and that post…

First we had a great week­end. Cen­ten­nial High School won their Home­com­ing game… which is always nice. And Ans­ley had a great time at the dance. I think she and her date Alex looked so adorable.

So much going on…

Lots of cre­at­ing and prepar­ing going on in my scrap­room. I tell ya it looks like a bomb went off I have so many piles here and there but it is a good thing as it seems to be the only way and best way I know how to create.

Make Art…

So do you wish you could stamp like Wendy Vec­chi as much as I do? Well it just got a lot eas­ier for me. I had a great mail day yes­ter­day because Wendy sent me a copy of her new book “Make Art, Stu­dio 490 Style”. Let me tell ya… this book will never leave my work­sta­tion and I am not kidding! Behind this cover con­tains loads and loads of  incred­i­ble infor­ma­tion. Read­ing Wendy’s book is kinda like being able to pick her brain. You know when you look at her incred­i­ble cre­ations and think to your­self… who’s prod­uct is this, how...

Trick or Treat with Lottie…

Lot­tie by Pink Persimmon I have so many ideas for this adorable stamp set and since Hal­loween items are start­ing to show up in stores all over the area I fig­ured now would be great time for a lit­tle “Mas­quer­ade Ball” theme.  So if you are par­tic­i­pat­ing in any Hal­loween tag or card swaps I think Lot­tie will cer­tainly make a grand entrance. Wish­ing you all a won­der­ful week­end. It’s going to be a great one here in Texas. Sup­plies Used: Jenni Bowlin Mini Bingo Cards — Hal­loween, My Mind’s Eye — Night Light Sugar Dots,...

Oak Leaves Cluster…

Can you tell fall is heavy on my mind? I can­not wait for some cooler weather. But for now it looks like another hot day here in Texas. I have no idea how these High School foot­ball play­ers prac­tice in 100 degree temps… nuts I tell ya. Any­way on to my post and more thoughts of fall. As you can see I am really lov­ing my new Cut­tle­bug Leaf Dies and thought I would show you the cute clus­ter of leaves I cre­ated using the oak leaf die. This lit­er­ally took me 15 min. to cre­ate from start to fin­ish. And the tiny Maya Road Hang­ing...
