What I enjoy now!

My big passion is making cards and scrapbooking my family pictures. I bought myself a Cricut Expression about a year ago and use it every day. It is almost an addition at this point but I enjoy it so much! I mostly make cards for friends, family, church sales or any other reason I can find. Paper is like fabric to me. Since I am also a sewer/quilter I have an extensive fabric collection but the paper has overtakin even my fabric now. Here are a few of my cards.

Lots of changes in my life!

As the title says, lots of changes. I am no longer making wreaths. I closed my business 2 years ago when I was diagnosed with lymphoma - a blood cancer. I have been thru 8 rounds of chemo, lost my hair, faced the possibility I would not survive and come through the other side. Definately have a new perspective of life and what I want to do with mine. Enjoy it each and every day! I still have to have chemo treatments every 6 months for 2 years, 1 year is complete as of February, 2010.
My blog will change since I no longer make wreaths but I do other things to share here. If you are looking for twig wreaths you will be able to get them soon. My middle son is taking over and the beautiful wreaths will be available again. I have had so very many people contact me asking for my wreaths and I thank everyone for their tremendous support over the last 10 years. I will let everyone know when he is up and running. My son has gone back to college at 39 for his engineering degree. He is raising 2 sons with his wife, Pam. Mainely Twigs will be an extra undertaking for him. I hope everyone continues to support him as they did me.
