As most everyone knows I have a lot of health issues and it seems that I can't seem to get on top of the issues so I choose to lay down and do nothing. After a while everything seems to be put on hold and I just sit around moaning for bygone days. Before I get too maudlin I just want you to know that I am okay but just keep having one flare up after another with the autoimmune disorders and it tends to effect me mentally, emotionally, and physically. I am my worse enemy with this shut downs. I don't have an original thought and can't seem to focus long enough to stick with even making a card or tag. A really sad state for me.
After reading about Eliza's passing this week I have decided to make an effort to blog and interact more. I know that it makes me feel better when I do so here is the start... Thanks Julia for commenting on something on Facebook that reminded me I need to start back doing WOYWW... For those who don't know what WOYWW is check it out here...Now my desk...
Heather convinced me a back in April that I needed to start doing something...no matter what it was and to use my art to help me feel better. Heather bought some kits from Close to my Heart, a scrapbooking/stamping group that she sells for and told me that I should try and make them and I could pay her back as I used the kits. The first kit I made was a card kit called Blossom that I finished and put on my blog back in April. My second kit was another card kit called Pathfinding. I like these card kits because they come with enough stuff to make 15 cards and have a little left over that you could actually make 5 or so more with your own card blanks. Kits run $25-30. I don't know where you can get 15 cards for $25 now days.
Pathfinding like the autumnal cards above... I used the pictures from last Thanksgiving when we made the trip to Virginia Beach, VA to celebrate with Chad and his family.
So that is truthfully all I have done since my last post. I promise to keep in better contact and up date my blog a little more faithfully. Think of Eliza again I want to leave you with a couple pictures of my kitties. I so enjoyed reading about Eliza's cat Yoda and how he was doing after being so ill! My girls and my second desk...
