WELCOME!

WELCOME!

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to have you visit with me and I hope you enjoy your stay. I absolutely love company, sharing, and making new friends so I hope you find something here that inspires, motivates, or just pleases you in some way.

Of course, I love to visit and be inspired also. So if I don't already drop in on you, please let me know where I can find you and I'll hop on over to see what you're doing or to just say "hi".

Before you go, I would love it if you'd please leave me a comment letting me know you dropped in! Actually, I'd just love to hear from you -- comments, opinions, or questions you'd like me to answer.

In the meantime, relax and make yourselves at home... you're family here!!!

I'll be seeing you!

HELLO AND THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

Hello, to all -- my family-friends!!!  I do apologize for taking so long getting here with an explanation for my absence and, without boring you with a lot of details, it was because I haven't been well.  I still have some hurdles to get over and although I'm still feeling what I'll call "limb around the edges" for lack of a better description, I do feel better.  I did have a minor surgery and as I'm not to do anything strenuous right now, I am dying to jump into some "lite" crafting...lol.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!   To everyone who said a prayer for me, left comments and emails expressing your concerns and well wishes; and for the beautiful get-well cards I received.  Thank you, again, so very much.  All your consideration has meant so much and is soooo appreciated.  Here're the cards I received:






They are all treasures, and will be kept as such!

Of course as much as I've missed crafting, I've missed you and all your wonderful projects more than you can imagine.  I can hardly wait to get back home full-time again but because I still can't sit for long periods, it'll take me some time to get to your blogs and/or respond to your emails so I know you'll continue to be just a bit more patient with me on that end.  In the meantime, I hope to post  whatever/some little project I manage to complete as soon as I've completed it -- I can't wait to get started!!!  Also, I haven't forgotten I'd promised another little bling RAK before I "disappeared", so that'll be another "priority-first" for one of my return blog posts -- be on the lookout!!!

I'm so happy to be here and plan on sticking around -- for a long, long, long time!  I'd say this adds up to ...

I'll be seeing you!!!

Audrey, I am so happy to see you back in blogland! I've missed you terribly, dear lady! I hope that your surgery went well, and that you will be fully recovered very quickly. I'll continue to pray for you and yours! No worries about RAK's as far as I'm concerned - just excited to see you back! Hugs and blessings...

What beautiful cards Audrey.. Again I feel so bad I didn't even think to send you a card.. I was so concerned about you it didn't even cross my mind to make u a card... :-(. What kind of friend am I... I am so sad I didn't make u one... But so happy others did... I will continue to be praying for you my sweet friend... You have so many wonderful friends, and I am so blessed to be one of them... (just wish I would have thought to send you a card). You just rest and get well, we don't want you ending back in the hospital. Sending extra BIG hugs

Hello Audrey, I am glad to hear you are on the mend, I was not aware that you had been ill. I have been taking a break from blogging for almost a month, trying so hard to get back into it. Take care of yourself sweetie, crafting will be waiting for you... Get well soon!
