Woke up this morning with a really bad headache and couldn't get up without feeling like I was going to get sick and pass out. Took some meds and seems to be easing some. I don't understand why I am having such a problem with this lately. I just hope it is nothing serious. If you are a praying person, please pray that it isn't. Hope this finds you all well and I will be getting back into crafting soon.


I won the bid on a Cricut Create on E Bay Saturday for $39.99. What a bargain. Can't wait to actually receive it in the mail so I can start playing with it. I also won a couple cartridges so I can start playing as soon as I get it. Will post some pictures of my projects.

Had to give up my Consultant position with Close To My Heart

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I last posted anything here. We have been busy with the grandkids being home from school and life in general. Mike and I just got home from a 9 day trip to Cincinnati to visit with family and reunite with some old fiends. Had a wonderful time but we were glad to get back home. I am looking forward to our next trip which is a Cruise to the Bahamas in August. Neither Mike nor I have ever been on a cruise so it should be quite an adventure for us.

Now, as far as crafting goes, I haven't had the time to get much done but after we get home from the cruise, I plan on getting back into the groove.
Unfortunately, I am no longer a consultant with Close to My Heart. I still plan on
buying product from them but I could not generate enough sales to maintain my consultant status. So, now I am waiting patiently for the new Idea Book to come out on August 1st. to see what amazing new products they come out with.
