Good Morning folks i hope you are all well and prepared for the big day i think i am, anyway if i've forgotten anything we will have to go with out lol as my health has been a bit rough this last couple of weeks but i went to the DRs yesterday and my chest is getting better but still not right so more antibiotics and i also had a chest x ray and a lovely jab in my bum lol so i'm feeling quite a bit better and not in so no where near as much pain.
This is our last challenge of the year where did the go lol! it went to quick for me................. This challenge will run for 4 weeks and end on Monday, 16th January 2012. Just so that everyone has plenty of time in between all the festivities it get back into crafting lol.
Unfortunately Donna has decided to suspend The Bearly Mine Designs Challenges for now as she has been rather poorly she's still unable to take part in the challenges herself and she needs to concentrate on her health at the moment which is much more important than the challenges as she's having great problems with her hands at the moment. I have so enjoyed being part of the team but we will be back as soon as Donna's health improves thank You Donna for having me on your team and all your beautiful digi paper work, I hope you are feeling better soon hun.
Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are...................
Good morning everyone i'm sorry about my absence but my health is suffering yet again my chest infection is still not clearing up as it should be and i have to go to the hospital on Monday for a jab as my RA has flared up quite badly so i'm just doing my DT work at the mo until i feel a bit better, hopefully before Christmas lol.
Also while i'm here have you seen the beautiful new stamps over at Crafts and Me by our new artist Zindy Nielsen! oh my word you wont want to miss these beauties you can see them HERE You will get 10% off if your a newsletter readers only while stocks last until the 23rd December only if you put the code snow at the checkout.
That's it folks i'm off now as our son Aaron is on his way for a visit.
I hope you all have a lovely day whatever your doing.
Good Evening peeps i hope you had a fab weekend, have you finished your Christmas shopping yet?. We had a busy weekend so didn't get to do anything in my much in my craftroom except finish off a project that i made for my dear daughter and i gave it to her yesterday when they came over for dinner and she loved it:) i've been back to the DRs today and she is very worried about my chest as i still have a chest infection that just doesn't want to budge so she has given me much stronger antibiotics for a week and if still doesn't budge then chest x rays because she said we don't want a repeat of 4 years ago when i spent 2 weeks in hospital with Pneumonia and that's what has left my chest so weak,she has also given me something for my balance as i have had several falls recently and it appears that i also have Tinnitus which is probably causing the falls and i tell you its driving me crazy lol.
I have seen a few of these wreaths around since seeing one that the super talented Debbie Dolphin made anyway here is my version of it as my dear daughter doesn't like shabby or vintage
Below is my beautiful little Granddaughter Lexi with some of her lunch still round her mouth bless her lol holding the wreath i made for her mummy.
Good Afternoon folks wow two posts in one day well i'm still wrapping prezzies and we are off out to friends for a Chinese a bit later so have lots to do yet lol.
