A Long Time Coming

Hello Lovelies,
I know, I know, I have been away for what seems like ages.  I wanted to send some very special crafty hugs to all of you that emailed me, called me, sent me cards, etc... I was truly touched by your thoughtfulness and generosity.  I never knew I could find so many genuine people on the internet. 

Anyway, I've been through a lot and since I'm not as brave as some - I can't share and we'll just leave it at that.  I have been in and out of my craftroom and sometimes just sitting in my chair at my desk trying to find the motivation to make something but it just hasn't been available.  I'll see something pretty and think to myself, you should at least make a card but as you can see, that didn't happen. 

My god daughter turned 4 and I love her so...she is so sweet. I found my motivation and here is what I came up with.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll be sure to visit you lovelies soon.  Is it me or is this new blogger weird??? IDK.

Hello Lovelies,
It's another CTO Challenge! I want to encourage all of you to play along.  This week the theme is "birthday" and there is also a sketch. I do have to apologize for the picture quality...I am at a conference, yes, another one and I am having all kinds of issues, from technology to curriculum. What a way to start the year, right?! Anyways, no complaining here. This is what I came up with...I am not happy with it but this is it.  Thanks for the visit.

Missing In Action

Hello Lovelies,
Unfortunately, I don't have a card to share, I know, I very sorry.  My life has been so hectic the pass few weeks, it's unbelievable really. I don' t complain because it is all for some reason and always according to his perfect plan.  Anyways, I just got a free moment and wanted to say "Hi" and that I really, really, miss you all terribly. I am  scheduled for so very many STEM conferences until I am dreaming mathematical equations and Trig and Calculus and whatever else I can't remember anymore now. I hope this nonsense ends soon you all. Pray for me! Thanks for the visit and I hope like crazy to see you all very soon.
Crafty hugs,

Card R.A.K. Week of 7/25/11-8/1/11

Hello Lovelies,
I wanted to share with you all the name of the recipient of the Card R.A.K. for the above referenced week. That person is Candace
Candace, please send me your mailing address and the card information for the card you would like to receive.
I also told you that I had added a twist to the R.A.K. - we all create cards and you don't need mine of course, I just thought it was a kind gesture and wanted to do something nice for you all as a "Thank You" for your loyalty. So, I put the (2) names for the month of July into a jar and Candace also won the monthly prize. I will do this monthly.
I absolutely love to see people happy and offering "Blog Candy" seems to do the trick here in blog land, however, I want to offer some goodies to those of you who are here supporting and encouraging all of the time. Thanks a million times over all of you that fit into that category and please know that I appreciate you very much.
Many thanks everyone.

Hello Lovelies,

PSALMS 13:5-6

But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me.
I will sing to the Lord because he is good to me. (NIV)

But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me. (HJV)
