View from above...

Well....June 18th of 2014 I went and did something UNTHINKABLE for
me....I went skydiving. That's right...I jumped from a plane and parachuted
to the ground safely. IT was the most intense thing I've done and plan to
do it again.  The view from above is breath-taking and the rush is overwhelming!!!
My girls (Kia and Tiffany) went as well, while Chad stayed on the ground to witness
the whole event. I was scared and scared of heights, but this experience has taken
the edge off of that fear and now look to new things to do on my bucketlist.



Long time gone

Been away for far too long on this blog. Time to get back into the swing/habit of posting my views and interests here. So much has much to get posted....

Altered Puzzle Pcs

In a group of mine...we were to purchase a child's chunky puzzle to alter! Sent pcs to those in the group and they altered them to whatever they desired and shipped them back. It was an unique opportunity to see the creative side of my sisters in this swap. What a challenge it was too. I sooo enjoyed it. Here aer some photos of some of the pcs I had altered. Love how they turned out...and pray they feel the same way.

Cards I've made

Some Handmade cards I've created...I soo love making them too!!
each is such a different technique or color or theme. I'm happy
to just create regardless of what is asked f me....The winter card
was for a group swap...The tilde on bike is for a BFF for her birthday
and the Victorian was for a Secret Sister.

Back to work....

I'm now back to work as of May 23rd. Not that I'm ungrateful to be back, just wanted to find something new so I didn't have to return the this particular job. :(   Still looking and praying something better will come along.

Off again....

I am off work again....UGH! I had went back to work on the 9th of April and worked for the 3 days and took (I thought) an Evac. Dr. put me off work after my visit on the 15th. The pain from the pinched nerve is unbareable. Doing more therapy and if not better in the FIRST two weeks, he ordered another MRI. I soooo want to be over all this....I am ready for the NORMAL to back and to live life again.

My New Kitchen floors kitchen floors are down!!! YAHHHhh...been a long waiting process, but happy to see them done.  Chad and his dad, finished them earlier this month and they are wonderful. Love them... THANKS Chad and Jeff!



What a birthday!!!!

My birthday was the 22nd and it was nice. DH had bought me a GORGEOUS heart-linked bracelet with diamonds!!!! Also a yummy Strawberry Sundae cake and a rose. My DD and her roommate bought dinner at the Olive Garden ...YUmmmmmmmmmm...and we all went and got tattoos. DD and I both got a Dove for the meaning of Mother, new beginnings, and LIFE. It was painful, but sooo worth it. Photo below. I also rec'vd a $25 gift card from Jeff and CHarlotte, my in-laws. My Sister gave me a New Vera Bradley wallet in pink...a jar candle, and perfume. I bought myself a new mountain bike, pink and white. I can't wait to ride it. Over all, a great day. Thank you to all of those that remembered my day.



Diamonds and Pearls

On the MAS group board....the stick pins swaps was themed **Diamond & Pearls**. Perfect for girls! I made the boxes to place my set of 3 pins into. Used pretty girlie papers with bling.The pins had to be pearls and I used lots of clear beads to resemble diamonds..and pearls in white and pinks. I really enjoyed these. I made to sets.



Large Tickets

This month's Ticket swap was for the largest ticket of Tim Holtz ticket die. I really enjoyed the larger size too. The theme was birthday and this is what I did. Cut circles at different sizes for balloons and used wire for the string tied with a ribbon. Used 2 small tickets to stamp Happy Birthday on one and then the other was music (for the song) and the word **Wish** on it. I am pleased with how they turned out.

Bingo anyone?

Well, not I had hosted a swap on the CMB using Bingo cards. It was different, but fun at the same time. I enjoyed the creations I made and rec'vd.  Here at the two I had to a partner, JrCreate and the other to a sweet lady that was FLAKED on, she too had to enjoy a pretty card.

I hope you enjoy what I did.


THis is JrCreate's Bingo Card. She wanted pinks
 and Blacks and one to hang on the wall.
THis is KauiMelody's Bingo Card. She wanted
Eclectic..and this is what I came up with.
I soooo LOVED this card..wanted to keep it!
Enjoy ladies...It was a pleasure creating for
you both

Long road, but getting close

I've been off work since January 17th and it's been a rough long road to recovery. Was misdiagnosed the first time at the Company I wanted a second opinion and with that was sent to the SPINE GROUP in Carmel, Indiana. I had an MRI done and have to protruding discs in my back...L3 and L4. NOT what I wanted to hear, but with therapy hopefully all will be good.

Have been doing the therapy 3x per week in Lafayette, Indiana and has been a HUGE success to my road to recovery. My therapist is amazing. Lots of strengthing exercises and moist heat goes along way.  Thank you Teela!  I go back to see my specialist in Carmel on the 8th and hopefully with good news. I may return back to work and soon.


Large Altered Keys

I used the Micheal's $1 keys in this swap. They are around 4-4 1/2" long. They are several styles and colors to choose from. I love how these turned out. Even though PINK is my FAV color...the RUST is hard to pass by.....


Blue....with Birds



Shabby Chic Mini Album

I love how my mini turned out on the MAS group. I chose papers from the French Country DCWV line...very soft and muted greens/creams/pinks/blues.  IT was the perfect fit to the theme.

Another challenge on the MAS board....this ONE did intimidate I wasn't sure how to do a ~~~MOUSE TRAP~~~ but think they turned out pretty awesome. I took some parts from the MOUSE TRAP and left them off. IT was definately OUT of my comfort zone, but the end results were amazing.
These are to be used a note holders...darlin' idea!!!

Red Romance trap


Pink Key to my Heart Trap


Just **Hanging** around

On the CMB we have a monthly Maggie swap and each month it has an item we are to make or alter. THIS month was for an alter DOOR HANGER. My partner Cammi wanted PINKS...ohhh a girl after my own This is the hanger I came up with and hope that she too loves it as much as I do.
USed several of my dies, Doo Hickey Heart & swirl flourish die, MFT fancy flourish die, Memory BOx Fence die....the Scalloped squares by SPellbinders for the maggie paper.  Colored with my Copic Sketch markers. Pearls, ribbon and flowers from my stash and the stick pin I created myself. ENJOY...
