Mindy's advent calendar

Hi all--I need to plug Mindy's blog so that you will go see her awesome advent calendar that she made. She is showing a page every day and I am so proud of her as each page is her own design. She is not like me who can't do anything without CASEing it. Mindy designed each page on her own and has hours of work in it. Please go check it out at and leave her a comment. I know she would appreciate it. I am one proud mom!
Thanks for checking in.
I won blog candy for a tutorial on an ornament box from Andrea so as soon as I make it, I will post it. Looks like a very neat box.

Sorry for the absence

I am so sorry that I haven't posted. I really haven't been in the best of moods lately and have lacked creativity and the time to make anything. This has been a very difficult time for us as we lost my father-in-law in March, my stepfather in Sept. , my precious Abby in Oct, and now to top it off, my husband was one of the employees hit by the Nascar team layoffs. So here we are, 60 years old and living on unemployment. What a horrible year. I am trying so hard to use positive thinking and not feel sorry for myself. It is difficult. We will survive and be stronger for it, I am sure, but right now, it is hard.

So, with that being said, I will be working on my Christmas cards, some handmade gifts to give out and then will post the results on my blog. Please don't give up on me. I am so sorry that I haven't given you any eye candy in so long, but that will change. I am a fighter and usually a very optimistic and upbeat person.

I will be back.
