My First Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone,
I'm finally back to creating my cards now.  It took longer to organize my workroom, I kept moving things around.  I needed to make sure, things I create with was close to me.  I started on some of my Christmas Cards  and used We R Memory Keepers Christmas Scrapbook Pad.  I found this pad at Cord Camera,  I just fell in love with the colors the papers had.  It wasn't the usual Christmas Colors.  It's fun trying something different to use!  I have some other cards not completed yet.  I did get the images colored for them.  On these cards I used images from last year, Firecracker Designs, Just Inklined and I Brake for Stamps.  I haven't printed out the new Digital Stamps yet.  I used Copic Markers to color the images with, Martha Stewart's border punches, Gems, Ribbons, Pearls and a small snowflake punch by EK Success.  I hope everyone having a wonderful and blessed weekend!  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

My Move

Hello Everyone,
I'm finally in my new town house.  I have been busy unpacking and getting things in order here.
I can now say, everything is out of the boxes and unpacked!  That's why I hadn't been posting lately.
I have been so tired and sore muscles.  I also, got my creative scraproom studio set up now.  I can get back to my creating.  I'm only missing a photo box,for some apparent reason, full of photo's also!
I had to be here a the new place for the cable guy to hook up my internet and cable.  I had lefted it on my shelf in my old room, to come back to get.  It never came on the truck with other things. 
The guy was new and took him over three hours to get the internet and cable on.  I couldn't go back to get another load in my car.  My husband doesn't know, what happen to it.   That's the only bad part of my move.  It's quiet here and peaceful. 
I just need to get ink this week for my printer, then I can start creating again!  Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.  Have a blessed week!

Loss of a Family Member

Hello Everyone,
Sorry I haven't posted any cards lately.  I was out of town last week during the July Fourth weekend.
I went to support Patty, who's my childrens Aunt.  Her husband Chester had became very ill the weekend, before the Fourth.  He was admitted to the hospital in ICU.  He had cancer and it had gotten to his stomach, lungs and kidneys.  He had internal bleeding also and kidney disease.  I wanted to see him, while he was still with us.  I spent alot of time at the hospital and at their house with Patty. She has trouble speaking, so I would talk for her.  We spent the night on the Fourth until five the next morning, with Chester in the ICU.  He thought he wouldn't make it through the night.  But he did.  We went to her home and slept for a few hours, then right back to the hospital.  It was so hard to see him suffer in the pain, he had and to see him cry.  We all cried with him and smiled with him.  I stayed a extra day, to get my strength up to travel, back home on that Wens.  I did some calls for Patty cancelling appointments, that was made for Chester.  The doctor had called that morning, and told Patty he had from 2 days to two weeks to live.  I tried to help her out as, much as I could. 
I drove back to Columbus, during the afternoon on Wens.  Chester passed away at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday.  Patty was holding his hand and didn't realize he had gone.  His sister Barb was in the room also.  She had worked in the OR at the hospital and knew when it happen.  She's a Minister now and we became friends.  I hadn't met her until I was in town in Wheeling, WVA.  Chester didn't want prayer at first and finally on the Fourth he accepted Jesus and let a Minister pray for him.  God works things out, that we can't do.   My daughter Tinetta and Mike came to see him, the Sunday before the Fourth.  Chester was happy to see her and to meet Mike.  He had such a big smile on his face, when we all was visiting.  Then his body started to begin to change and shut down later that day.
I knew God, wanted me to be there for Patty and I did what he wanted me to do.  It was hard for us, but with God's help, we got through it.  There was no Funeral service, that's what Chester wanted and had everything taken care of and paid.  I'm just worried about Patty, they would of been married 40 years next month.  She wasn't eating before I got there, but started eating while I was with her.  She's still having trouble sleeping right now, being in the house alone.  I have been calling and checking on her, just about everyday.  Her Church family has been supporting her also and her two brothers.
I thank God for all he has done and Chester is at peace and not in pain now.   May God Bless all of you and your families.   I hope to be back creating soon.
