Thank you so much for all your well wishes, they are so very much appreciated. It feels like I've been away forever, and I've missed you and my crafting tremendously. I can't begin or imagine how to tell you how difficult and exhausting this week has been, but both myself and my aunt are well. I brought her home yesterday and she will still have a nurse to come in to provide 24-hour supervision because she's still a bit confused, and because she gets around so well, she is a "flight" risk being anxious to go back to work. I have some pictures to share with you at the bottom of this post that I took of her getting ready to come home. She dressed herself and was definitely in hurry to leave. Although she was upset with me because I forgot her wig and her teeth, she was so happy to "get out" -- lol-- she was a good sport and even posed.
Before I go any further, I so very behind on visiting you and althought I may not get through all the wonderful projects you've done that I've missed, I will be around to see as much as I can of what you've been up too. Please excuse me if it takes me some time as I visit so many that it will take me awhile. I have not forgotten or forsaken any of you! I'll be there as soon as I can!
Well, I'd told you I came in and worked on several projects the other night to calm myself down but, unfortunately, I was unable to post them the following day. So, I'd like to share with you now. The first project is a "Be Thankful" box/card set, the box is filled with after dinner mints:
This next holiday set is a purse-size tissue box with a card set. The box lid secures with Velcro:
Because of the way the tissues come folded, they dispense from the top of the box instead of in the middle:
I do have a third project; however, you won't be able to see it until Monday, November 22. That is when I'm being presented as a guest designer at Gaby's. Gaby is a new friend and asked me to be a guest designer, and I accepted her invitation; so, I hope you will all join me there for the presentation of my project. I believe you'll like my project, Gaby, and her place too!
Now for the pictures of my aunt. On this first one she's completing dressing herself:
She refuses any assistance and it's really so cute, although sooooo annyoying at times. On this next picture she doing her "I'm very happy I'm getting outta here" pose:
Most of the women in my family have long hair -- can you believe in my whole life I've only seen my aunt's real hair maybe 4 times. She keeps it braided and tied under a wig!!! Everyone was telling her how pretty her hair was -- meant nothing to her, she wanted her wig and her teeth!!! LOL!!!
Love you all and I'll be seeing you!
