What's Up This Week

What is going on in my world this week?  Well let's see, I compiled my class board for the class I will be teaching on February 26, 2013 at "Scrapbooks By The Sea" (my LSS).  I will be demonstrating different ways to fold a card to add interest and variety to our cardmaking.  I had fun learning the two folds on the left.  The top right card is the Joy Fold, but I have been using that one for years.  The top left is the diamond fold and I found the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers.  I was one of Beate's videos and I just love to watch her Videos.  The bottom left card is an accordian fold and that was fun too.  (Another one of Beate's tutorials too.)

Still trying to do a little spring cleaning, but the initial burst of energy has gone missing.  I would spend some time looking for it, but I don't have any time to spare.  I sent my drapes out to be dry cleaned and I tell you it has been so cold in my living room without them.  You would be surprised to know how much temperature control a pair of lined draperies does.  I will be happy to pick them up, not happy to write the check to the dry cleaners though LOL.

My hubby is doing better, bless his little heart.  He did suffer greatly though.  My Mom's health is still declining.  Any spare prayers you have out there would be greatly appreciated.  Good Lord, you would not know it to see her now, but that little lady could sure wallop me when I misbehaved.  Yep, you probably guessed it, I misbehaved a lot.  I think she mentioned I was headstrong or something to that effect.  LOL.

I am also trying to finish my Valentines so I can get them in the mail.  I have all this fun making the outside card, but put the inside verses off.  Now the time has come and I am racking my brain for just the right messages.  Do any of you have that problem?

That's about it for me this week.  I am going to post this in Sassy Cheryl's SMT Challenge.  I won last week.  Whoo Hoo!  You should join us over there, you just might win too.

Have a great week and Happy Crafting.

  6. Congratulations on last week's win. I wish I lived closer so I could come to the class, because those are some stunning creations. I know it will be a great class. Prayers are being said for both your DH and your DM. I remember a Mom that could wallop the daylights out of me too, and said very similar things. It sure breaks your heart to see them lose their strength. Love you GF.
