They say....

...that the road to hell is paved with good intentions... as you can see from my previous post, I had good intentions, but while I'm throwing out cliches - when man proposes, God disposes...

In case you were curious why I've virtually fallen off the face of the earth, I wanted to let you know that my mom is in ICU in Gainsville, FL VA hospital and has pretty much been there this whole month. She went in for something on her leg and ended up with pneumonia, a ventilator and needing triple bypass surgery. The doctors keep saying "a delicate balancing act" and for each step forward, we seem to take 2 steps back. I spent several weeks living in a hotel near her offering support. She had been somewhat improved last Saturday, so I headed back home, only to get a call from one of my sisters that she's aspirated and we're back to square one. Sigh. Still not sure how this will go - if you're a praying person, please keep mom and the rest of us in your prayers during this difficult time. Perhaps I'll be a better blogger in February - we shall see...

New Year - here we go again

So, who had big resolutions last year and did you actually DO any of them?

The weight and exercise thing for me was pretty much a bust - I didn't lose the weight I wanted, but at least I haven't gained more either...

This year, I'm going to be bold and actually write my goals down - finally going to use the book I made in 2007 with Rhonna Farrer at Creative Escape. I WILL make my first entry today before I head to bed.

Sharing pics - here we go - let's see what I have for you...

Attended a trade show in Houston - took classes with Mona Gettmann and Cheryl Mezzetti from Creative Imaginations as well as many other companies like Prima, BoBunny, Prism, Just Rite Stampers and tons more - the manufacturer classes were the best I've ever taken and I had a ball.



Bow, Tim and ME

Attended Teresa Collins Inspiration Unlimited Event - awesome teachers, fabulous projects and great friends and fun in Las Vegas (I have no idea where the teachers pics went on this computer.)

Took a Donna Downey class weekend and had a blast learning new techniques and concepts.
