Good day, all!!!  I hope you're all doing well!

First, I'd like to apologize for not being around yesterday much for my Sassy Lady project airing.  Late Wednesday evening I developed a really nasty headache/migraine with periods of nauseousness and I can't seem to get rid of it. This is usually an indication my blood pressure is high, eventhough I take my meds religiously, so it'll probably subside once my blood pressure regulates itself.  We've eaten out quite a bit, and so I suspect I've overdid it with salty and fried foods, so I'm back on my bland diet!!!  BLAH!!!  No more greasy burgers and fries, pizzas and stuff!

Second, it was pointed out to me -- thank you -- I'd neglected to mention the cart I used for the CD/DVD cut.file; the cart is George.   I typically use this cart for many cuts because it has so many of the shapes easily available that I need.  However, I realize many of you do not have this cart and if you'd like a cut.file did in another cart, please let me know and I'll let you know what other carts I can do it in for you.  Plantin is usually another great cart with basic shapes.  This one would also be easy enough to do an SVG file quickly too.

Next, I really wanted to drop in to do several things:  welcome my new followers and thank a few wonderful friends for some wonderful candy/gifts.

To my new followers, I am so very happy to have you become a part of my blog family!  Hopefully I'll be able to find you, if I haven't already, so that I can also visit with you and admire your creativity.  I do hope you'll come often and if there's anything I can do to make you more comfortable, please don't hesitate to let me know.  Thank you so much for being here!  It's an honor and I appreciate all my family and friends!

Now I have a few wonderful things to share from some more very dear friends...

Last week, I won blog candy over at my friend Jean's blog:

There are tags and a mini book, and ribbon and stamps -- oh my, just loads of stuff; and, it was all packed into that cute little bag!

For my upcoming birthday, I received the following:

From my talented and wonderful friend (as well as my DT sponsor), Sheila,  I received this beautiful card and monogrammed card set:

And a card, gifts tags and buttons from a beautifully warm and spiritual soul, my friend Beatriz aka, "Paper Grace":

Thank you all!  How wonderful you are and how very talented!!!  AND LADIES, if you think for one moment that I'm going to really USE these things, you must be NUTS!!!  I'll be looking at this for years!!!  LOL!

Now, for as much as my headache will let me (depending on how well I feel), I'll be trying to continue dropping in on you periodically throughout the day; however, I know I won't get to all of you (if any), so please forgive me.  I will though get to those of you I may miss as soon as I can -- and, if you know me, you know I will!.  But for right now, my stomach is getting queasy again, so I'll mostly be lying around, being quiet, and trying to feel better so I can get back to everything!!!
