I'm glad you arrived, please do come in.. I hope you enjoy my Homemade crafty items. Feel free to leave a comment and if you have any questions I'll do my best to reply. I've been having better luck with my Mojo but still have a tendency to get lost in the game. I lose my mojo and I just wait for some inspiration to hit and then I'll scrap again. I'm sure others know what I'm talking about. We just plain run out of ideas for a moment! Sooner or later things are kicking back into gear! YAY! For those that stop by and leave comments, I greatly appreciate it. Even stop by just to say Hi.. I will try to get back to your blog too. I hope you have a great day, I hope you enjoy your visit!

Continued part 2.. Still Alive!

HI AGAIN....  this post was part of my post from yesterday.  I just didn't have time to get  the post  done, So today I'll post my newest card.   I'm new to cards, this is my third card I've made.  Haven't been able to make much more and I do explain why in my yesterday's post... which I just repeated below.  Check out my Tackle box/card below my Sisters card. 
Boy its been awhile since I've posted anything.  I've had the unfortunate luck of having health problems.  I have a form of arthritis which has been mostly under control with immune therapy drugs, but as of the end March this year, Its went into every joint in my hands  and alot in my toes.   Needless to say My hands are very sore you don't even think about them until you can't do little things like pick up a container of milk, open a bottle, or even turning the key to start the truck.  I have alot of health problems, from neck and pinched nerves, resulting in mother of all headaches, I also deal with my ribs that lock up or come out of place and have to be manipulated by my a therapist to get them back in place twice weekly... and boy that is painful.

Unfortunately my joints are so swollen and sore I haven't been able to do much of any crafting. So I was unable to do and more designer layouts, which is very depressing, another enjoyment of life has been taken away for me.  Anyway  Well 3 months later my hands are still really bad. My Arthritis doctor put me on more meds but as usually I got extremely sick from them.  So I'm still hurting and no farther ahead.  I do not usually tell anyone of how hectic things are for me, so I'm being very honest here.  Its driving me CRAZY that I can't do much crafting, so I've tried small things like cards. Crafting is all that I've had left that I could do, it usually took me a long time to get a layout done, its because I have to stop so I can control pain from getting out of hand.   Even though I'm very new at cards.. and I'll be posting my 3rd one I've made,  its not the same as getting a layout done.   BUT... at least I can get some scrappy things done.  Perhaps I'll try a layout one of these days, but it will take probably a couple weeks if not more to complete.  but I guess thats better than nothing!

I made this cute little Father's day card/tackle box for my dad  for father's day and I want to share with  you, as well a few weeks ago I got a card done for my sister who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.   Today I'm going to share both with you.  I hope you enjoy.   Please leave a message and say Hi.  Its nice to know that I have someone visiting.   Thanks  Sherry

  1. Hi Sherry, I am so sorry to hear of your health and the difficulties you have been going through.. I do hope you can find some things to do to just give you a sense of being able to do something.. I was diagnosed with Lupus 23 years ago and have had my ups and downs with that, as well as other things.. so I do know how you feel, I know how sore and painful joints can be, it wears down your spirit and can make each day hard.. so I just want to say I do know what it is like and I do hope you find some help and relief and can just keep going.. Your card for your sister is so beautiful.. I love it...and all the best for your sister too.. take care.. love lizzy

  2. Thanks Sherry for getting back to me.. I nodded as I read what you had typed.. I do hope this flare up will be able to be controlled somehow and you can get back to what you love doing.. Life can get hard, but I also believe that God will give us the strength we need at the time.. I just wish He didn't think I can handle so much! haha! Do take care of your self.. and I hope you can rest.. I will pray for you tonight in my prayers and write your name down to remind me to pray often for you... love lizzy...

  3. Wow this is gorgeous!! I can't imagine doing all of this with so much pain. Wonderful creations!


I appreciate so much, when you stop by and take time to leave me a message. Many thanks to all of you.
