She's ALIVE!!!!!

I bet you all were starting to wonder.  Well at least those of you who come by often enough to know I haven't posted in months.  Things went downhill and fast around here and I became very overwhelmed.  My son caught mono which in and of itself isn't terribly dangerous.  One of the less common complications involve swelling of the spleen and his nearly ruptured which meant nearly a month of home schooling and doctor's until he was able to get back to 'light duty'.  Then it seemed Christmas was barraling in on me and within a month my son turning 11 and the baby turning 1 (which will happen in just an hour at the stroke of midnight!!!!!).  I spent so much time focusing on getting my son well and also keeping him from falling behind at school that my house fell into absolute disarray.  So that has taken priority at the moment and cut into not only my crafting time, but time playing online beyond what I can do from my cell. 

I am challenging myself to start somewhere and that's going to be with scrapbooking.  I have missed it terribly.  So I am going to try to commit to completing 2-3 layouts a month for now until things calm down and I can refocus on that 'me' time.  My most amazing friend, Faye has taken over running Scrap It With a Song and has made some fabulous changes and it's well on it's way to being gloriously inspiring.  I can't wait until I am back able to play along with the fun she's cooking up over there! 

I have nothing crafty to share with you today, but I hope that my update sees all of you well and happy!

  5. Glad things are getting back to normal for you too. Hubby still out of work and no good prospects...always seems to be some reason or another. Scrapping seems to give me a sense of normal too. When did you take over SIWAS? Never seem to get my head around it until weeks later. Love the song choices though! Looking forward to seeing your creations again. Hugs, Christina!

  7. I hope your son is doing better. That would be extremely scary. I am doing better in my pregnancy. School is still busy, but we are about to be on our 3rd snow day in a row due to the weather conditions. We had ice/sleet/snow on Tuesday morning and temperatures are not climbing above the low 20s...so ice is not melting!! I don't think we are going back to school until Monday! So I actually made a layout today! It's a simple one, but looks nice.
