Feeling better, finally

Hi there, its been a while since I last posted. The truth is that I have been so sick.  I finished up my second round of antibiotics and I still feel kind of sick.  I guess it really did get the best of me this time.  Well on a brighter note, I have been working on my tag and charm for the swap on the beach.  It is my first swap, so I was a little nervous to begin with, then I go and get sick. I would've sent them in by now. The deadline is on the 6th I believe, so I'm still good.  The ladies over on the scrap beach have been really good about welcoming the Newbies.  There is a bunch of really talented ladies over there.  If you have not already, you should go check it out. It is Life on the scrap beach. You will be happy you did. Sorry about the lighting, I really need to work on that. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a very blessed night. Talk to you later. Carmen

Feeling under the weather.

I have not posted anything because I have actually been feeling terrible. I have been in bed for the past week. I went to the doctor about 3 weeks ago, at which time she said I had a sinus infection, both ears infected and bronchitis. I really didn't feel so bad at that time. After taking my antibiotics I started to feel a little better, or so I thought. Then all of a sudden I started to feel week and dizzy for about 5 days. I couldn't get out of bed. Finally when I thought I should probably start feeling better soon, It hit me all over again. My head is congested, my ears hurt, my nose is draining and I feel so terrible. I'll make another trip to the doctor tomorrow. I have so much to do and I cannot be stuck in bed. I appreciate all the prayers I can get and hope to be posting new stuff soon. Thanks for stopping by and May you have a blessed day. Carmen

Valentine Swivel Clasp Charm Swap.

Hi I've been busy today working on my Charms for the swap at Life on the Scrap beach. I'm excited for my first swap ever. I can't wait to see the charms that I will receive. I just hope my charms are good enough. Its a Valentine Swivel Clasp charm with 9 dangles. I still have one to finish up and tomorrow I will be working on the tags. Did I mention that I am so excited. Ya! Well I hope you all had a great day and May The Lord watch over you and your family. Good Nite and God Bless, Love Carmen

My Beautiful Grandbaby Liani.

 The Front cover. I'm using the Bind it all.

                                                 Each page has a tag.
                                                        This is the last page.

Liani is 3 months old and she is such an adorable baby. I know every grandma feels that way about their babies, but she is so adorable. She is a good baby. I have been working on a mini album for her. I have no idea why its taking me so long to get it together. I think its because I am such a perfectionist.  I'm afraid I will put it together and then realize I could have made it different or better. Thats terrible, right? Anyway here are the pictures of the album. I am using an old paper collection from making memories. The Sabrina collection.

It's a New Year! A crafting Year.

It's been a long time since I posted on this blog. I started it but have not finished it. I'm ready for that now. There is so much I need to learn about blogging but I am ready.  I love crafting and sewing and making jewelry, home decor and all that good stuff. I have always loved it and finally have more time to get some done. I am in the process of cleaning out my craft room/ office. I have so many tools, papers, and all that good stuff that I need to organize. Somehow I've just neglected my craft room and just started throwing stuff in there and now its time to organize it. Once I clean it up I will post some pictures, believe me, You don't want to see it now" Lol So I better get to it. Talk to you later and May you all have a blessed New Year. God Bless. Carmen
