"I Feel The Love Card" for Brandon

Hey everyone, I sure hope that you all have had a great day today. Madison at Funky Cards has an amazing program called I Feel The Love. I've been ill with different things since the beginning of this year and have not had a chance to do cards for her program in what feels like forever. But I use to do it on a regular basis and even had the kids in my Sunday School class make a card each month for the recipient of this program. It's an incredible program and if you haven't already checked it out, I encourage you to do so. The story about this month's recipient, Brandon, is heartbreaking. Any time a child is hurt, my heart aches not only for them but for their parents. The other day I was looking at Madison's blog and it reminded me, "That no matter how sick I may be, I still have so much to be thankful for." So I made this card for Brandon. It's far from anything fancy but one that I hope will bring a grin to his little heart.

The stamps are Stampendous stamps called Changito Dos and I found them at Tuesday Morning. I used my Crayola colored pencils to color the images. The scalloped oval is from Stamp-in Up and the card stock is from Wal-Mart.

Becca's Mini Album

This has been one crazy day. It started with a transformer blowing on the poll beside our house at 1 a.m. this morning. Which nearly scared me to death. At about 10 o'clock a tree fell and landed on our patio. Jesse was on the patio at the time and it left a huge dent in the roof directly above where he was standing. I think my heart stopped on that one. I was watching him on the porch, I hear this loud sound and in the blink of an eye the tree was down and Jesse was gone. Thank God, he ran to the corner of the patio when it hit and I screamed for my husband to come help me. As I got to the door he came out from under the table he ran too. I think I held him so tight that I nearly squeezed the stuffing out of him when I got a hold of him. Then our washing machine decided to do something crazy and leaked water and kept running for some strange reason until it ran across the kitchen, through the family room, into the game room and under Jesse's door (completely covering his bedroom floor). I know this because I slipped and fell in it. This is one Memorial Day that I am ready to be over. Sorry about telling you all the bad things that happened today.

Let me show the mini album I made for a very sweet young lady, from my children's church, who came to see me when I was in the hospital.

Disney Autograph Book and a few more tags

I got up Friday morning and decided that I was going to make each of the kids in Jesse's class an autograph book for all the characters that they might meet on their trip. Plus a few kids didn't make it on my original list, so I made tags for them too. This ended up being an all day job and didn't allow for time to take pictures before I sent them off. Sorry about that.

Jesse's Class Disney Trip Tags

Jesse's class raised enough money for their end of the year Disney World Trip and I just finished the tags for the luggage. I know they are all going to have a great time.

A Quick Haul from Michaels, Ebay and Tuesday Morning

I had to go to pick up my glasses in Valdosta and while I had to wait on the lady to show up for work, my daughter and I made a trip to a couple stores. Michael's had a good sale on their Recollections bling and I was so excited. I don't have a lot of bling because of the cost. But for 40% off, it made it a very reasonable deal.

RAK from Annie

When I made my last post, the mail hadn't ran yet. Shortly after I let you all know about my "wonderful" hospital visit there was a knock at the door and it was the mail-lady. I had a package I had to sign for. I had no idea what it could be, I hadn't ordered anything. Well, it turned out to be an amazing surprise from Annie. I made a video of me opening the package and I want to share it with all of you.

Missing my blog and all of you.

I wish I had a project to post for you all but I just got out of the hospital and have been in there since my last post. I got home last night and am so thankful to be back in my own house. I can honestly say this was, by far, the worst hospital experience I've ever had. I am still waiting for the results of some test but could not spend one more day in that hospital. They were giving me some kind of steroid to make sure that I didn't get any blood clots while I was in there. So not only do I look like a pin cushion right now but I do not handle steroids very well.

My roommate was 98 years old and was a very sweet lady. But she was very scared and didn't want to be alone. So she decided that I should sit up with her at night. Well, after about the 4th night with no sleep because I was sitting in a chair between our beds and the steroids they were giving me (which make me very grumpy) I decided that I had to get some sleep. Well, she wasn't happy about that. She'd ring for the nurse and then when they'd come, she'd tell them that it was me. (You can laugh, it was funny. But at the time I was trying to figure out how I could bust myself out.) This is definitely something I'll never forget. She told me I must have been a big baby because I'm sure fat now. Yes, this is another example of some of the fun conversations we had while I was in there. Then the 15 guest she had in her room for 8 hours on Saturday was another amazing experience. They were taking pictures of each other and laughing and having a good ole' time. I think they thought they were at a family reunion. I was just waiting for someone to whip out fried chicken and potato salad and it would have been complete.

If anyone else has had fun and exciting hospital stays, I'd love to hear your stories. Please tell me that I'm not the only grumpy patient out there. LOL

Chunky Charm Key Chains

I had a very nice lady on YouTube ask me if I could do a video on how I do my key chain charms. So I tried to do the video last night. It was a little difficult to work with such small pieces and still have it visible, but I did my best. I hope that you all like the video and try making one for yourself. They make great gifts. I made 2 of them for my son's teachers for teacher appreciation.

Let me know what you think.

Basket Purses

Tricia from alittleshabbychic on youtube sent me the most adorable boxes all the way from the United Kingdom so that I could turn them into purses for my daughter and god-daughter. I was so excited. Mariah has hers and my god-daughter will be getting hers tomorrow. Mariah is definitely almost a teenager. As soon as I gave her her new purse, she carried it over to her daddy and asked for money to put in it. Thank goodness she still wants to buy barbie dolls and isn't asking to go to the mall. LOL



I used Folk Art (baby pink) paint and Plaid Royal Coat Decoupage Finish from Wal-Mart. Journey (K and Company) paper for the top. Beads from my stash, eye hooks and 18 gauge wire from my local hardware store for the handle.

Haul Videos

Hey everyone. I went to Valdosta on Friday to have my eyes examined and just couldn't  go without stopping at some of my favorite craft store. Here are a few haul videos of some of the goodies I got while I was there.
I have bought so many beads lately that I fear an intervention may be required. LOL

Dollarbead.com Haul

I love the beads that I have been getting from this on-line store and this is my second order. They have the perfect size you need for just about any kind of project you may be working on. I have no affliation with this company other than I spend too much money there and love their beads.

RAK from Tricia

Hey everyone. I received a RAK in the mail the other day, all the way from the United Kingdom. I was so happy. I had been having a really bad day and it came at just the perfect time. I had gotten a pm from Tricia saying that it would take 12 to 14 days. Well, nothing is to big for my God because it made it all the way to the United States in 5 days.
