I've been really busy, among other things, preparing 3 projects for this weekend. On Friday I'll be presenting my monthly DT project over at Pam's; on Saturday I'm guest designer for Sheila's weekly challenge and I'm also participating in Jean's and Tina's "Gobble Til You Wobble" blog hop. So I'll have two (2) project posts on Saturday. I do hope you'll all come around to see all 3 projects I'll be presenting to you, and that you'll have some fun in the challenge and hop!!! There'll be prizes at both!!! All the details will be available on each individual/specific post! Now that I have all these projects ready -- and one for today -- I can take some time to focus on visiting with you a bit later because Ive really missed you the last few days.
A bit of good news is my scan-test result showed I have an undeveloped "something" in my kidney that never developed from childhood which is causing the blood in my urine, so now I'm being referred to a urologist to find out what can be done about it-- sorry, if it sounds gross; however, it's better than being told it was cancer which, thank God, I wasn't! So that's good news! Isn't it funny how things always seem to catch up with you so unexpectantly?!!! Totally caught me off-guard that I was "undeveloped"!!! LOL!
Now on to my project for today. With Christmas almost upon us, I decided I better get started! I'm one of those last minute folks that never finishes getting everything done... lol!!! What I have is a matching card and gift box:
Here's a picture of the inside of the card:
The paper I used is Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium; I don't think you can go wrong with anything made by Graphic 45... lol! And although you may not be able to see it, I also used lots of stickles!!! (Maybe if you click to enlarge it.) Other than serious needing to get out and purchase a new paper cutter, I love how this set turned out with all the bling!!!
Anyway, normally this time of year (if you remember last year), I'd be knee-deep into making soaps and toiletries to sell to several once-a-year only customers. As I've had to decline this year due to timing issues (and a possible vacation), I hope to have a few more holiday projects to share with you prior to this year-end than last. And with the holiday seasons upon us and out-of-town family visiting, I'm hoping my aunt will be plenty occupied to allow me a little more "breathing" room... lol!!!
Well, I'm off to finish up some chores but I'll be back to begin my visits with you in a little while!!!
Hugs, thanks so much for taking time to stop by, and...
I'll be seeing you!
