Two Friends...

So I have these two from church and one who is an old neighbor. Each of these friends went in for surgery today...the first one ( I am happy to report) had a very sucessful surgery on her back in St. Louis today after much anticipation & prep. My other friend, had an unexpected surgery to have a stint put in to repair a blockage in an artery. He too had a sucessful day. God never ceases to amaze me... :) Thank goodness everything turned out just fine!

After 6 or so days of getting thru a nasty cold, I find myself unable to sleep tonite. 11:44pm and I am still awake. It's gonna be a LONG day tomorrow!

Vanna was on my case to get some crafty-ness done tonight. It didn't happen. BUT...I did manage to catch up on some of my fav tv shows...hee hee! There's always tomorrow...

Getting back in the swing of things...

WOW! Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday that I had my act just took over & before I knew it...I almost forgot how to blog. So many of you have asked about it...and I kept saying, "oh yeah...I'll get back to it!" Finally...I have. Only this time (I hope) will be more consistent.

So, where have I been...what have I been doing? Well, as most of you know, I have started a company with my good friend Vanessa (Queen Vanna) called Scrap Can Do! We create mini album kits...they include all of the materials needed to create beautiful keepsake albums for yourself or to give as a gift to a friend, teacher, or loved one. Check us out if you get a chance! In addition to starting the company, we teamed up with New England Scrapbook Co. in Canton, CT to help raise money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation this past weekend in celebration of Scrap Pink, which brings awareness to women about breast cancer. Vanessa created an elegant album kit exclusively for this event. It is our featured product this week.

This week much of my energy has been spent trying to get over a nasty cold. Much of my day yesterday was spent napping...I haven't had much in the way of sleep over the past week. And to tell you the truth, I am just exhausted. Both Andrew and I have struggled with this virus all week. We finally feel like we are on the mend.

In other news, I will be joining my bosses Lynn, Sue & our friend Penny on a magical trip to see the Mouse (Mickey Mouse that is!) in a few short weeks. Just a chic hubbys or childrens...just a bunch of girls having the time of their lives. I can't wait! (And by the way, for those of your keeping track, this will be my second time to WDW this year, AND my family and I are traveling to Disneyland in December...WOOT!)

In days to follow, I'll be showcasing new projects, layouts, funny photos & more. Stay tuned!
