Episode #253 ~ Sweet Baby Card!

Hi Everyone,
I wanted to say hello to each of you & a heartfelt thankyou for all the prayers & well wishes.
Unfortunately, my mom passed way last Tuesday & we had her service this past Saturday in
Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I know she is in a better place & that we will see each other again someday.
These are the times that I try to stay strong in my faith & rely on God's word to get me through.

Today I wanted to make a baby card for my neighbors who are expecting their first baby & we couldn't be happier for them! They are going to be wonderful parents & I love all things "baby"!!!
Walmart has these Cricut Lite Cartridges on sale for $20 & I always wanted this cute cartridge. If you haven't been in their craft section, make sure you check it out.

Thank you again my sweet friends & I hope you are all having a good week!

Episode #252 ~ Super Simple Sunday / Series #12

Happy Sunday Scrappy Friends,
I thought I would head down to my "Happy Place" & make a Back To School card today. I just love this Greeting Card Kids stamp set from Stampin' Up! This has to be one of my most favorite stamp sets ever... Here is a new way of attaching ribbon, I hope you like it~
Thank you to everyone who sent kept my mother in their thoughts & prayers, she is having a tough time, but I have been flying back & forth to N.C. each week to be there for her & she has some wonderful around the clock care. Hospice is wonderful & keeps me well informed when I am back in New Jersey.
I appreciate all the support & it means alot to me & I am sharing with her all the loving prayers & thoughts being sent her way.
I hope you all are relaxing this Sunday & enjoy the little things in life. Sometimes they are what matters most...
Big "Thankful" Huggs,

Some Sad News...

Hi Everyone,
  It's with a heavy heart that I am letting you all know that my mother Jane has suffered several strokes and they believe has a rapidly growing cancerous tumor on her brain. Hospice will come in today and I returned home late last night from North Carolina.  I am blessed to have spent 3 days with her in and out of the hospital. She has been coherient, but in alot of pain. It's so hard to watch our parents age, but my mother has lead an amazing life! God blessed me with an strong and loving women in my life to call "Mom" and I am most grateful for all the love she has given to me and my children.
  I am not sure what the next few weeks will hold, but I wanted to let each and everyone of you that I will probably not be making videos during this time. Perhaps it would take my mind off the situation, but as of right now I am busy dealing with this and taking care of my family.
  Hopefully soon I will get back in a normal routine...
