applied for DT position on Sketchy Thursdays!

So I want to scrap today but first the news: Sketchy Thursdays is having a DT call and I decided to go for it! 3 LOs and 3 sentences why I think I would be an asset to their team. What an opportunity! It's scary though...there are so many talented scrappers out there! But what the hey! can't hurt to try, right? I'm still gonna keep on scrapping and have fun with it and I love the Sketchy Thursday shots so it's all good! Now it's just the dreaded waiting game but I have the confidence now so I went ahead an emailed heidi...should hear back around 9-17 or so...yea!

bluejays for sketchy Thursday!

This was fun! I used paint, metallic mist, flowers, circles (not crazy about them but what the heck! I ran with scissors so...) PP and stuff from my stash!
My DH also helped me to ride my bike this morning just so I could try and stretch my legs. It was hard!
Julie from Sketchy Thursdays was my inspiration on this LO! Thanks!

So I could not get motivated today! I had plans to scrap and when DS got home, he hopped on the computer while I did a page, a LO I had planned on anyway. Just not feeling it today, ya know? So I did end up scrapping which I'm happy about...just a dull day! Hopefully I'll get my mojo back and I can start planning for the STL crop retreat in a few weeks! I am excited about that!

ready to start again!

Had my second infusion of Tysabri (an M.S. medicine) yesterday after 3 days of IV steroids at home. My poor body is just a wreck! I've been stuck, poked and prodded enough and am ready to take it easy and get back what little strength I once had. DH will be at a conference for work in Denmark for 8 days so DS and I will hold down the fort. Thankfully we have alot of support! I hope to scrap some today but am listening to my body. I feel alot better but I know that can change in the blink of an eye, when I'm least expecting it, especially with M.S. The last few days have really taxed my immune system (what's left of it) and so I have been warned to take it easy. I thank God that he heard my cry for mercy and He will never leave or forsake me. That in itself is such a comfort! Have a blessed day!

been up since 4 a.m.!

here's my take on the blog hop sketch from amanda! All the LOs were fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

the PP is Bo-Bunny and Sandylion, the floss and brads are Bazzill, the stickers in the title are Thickers "iguana" the punches are Fiskars and the rest is from my stash, This was fun! Hope to finish some more LOs today! My last infusion of meds is tonight and I'm actually getting around by "wall walking!" Yea! c u later!
okay! I'm back with yet another LO! I'm on fire I tell ya! What a fun day!

Yea! Back on track!

So the home health nurse came last night to start me on IV steroids for my M.S. flare up. I got stuck 4 (count that) 4 times and still it didn't work! ahhhhhhhh! Anyway, another nurse came this morning and got me started on the first try! yea! so now I have an infusion that I do myself every 12 hours for 3 days. The reason I explained all this is 'cos I was finally ready and motivated to do some serious scrapping and I could only use my right hand (thankfully!) and a little with my left! So essentially I was one-handed all day! Good times!

Been down and out awhile.....

So our computer has been down for 5 days and so have I actually. My M.S. has decided to flare-up a bit and I haven't been able to do much. So today is a new day and the home health care nurse comes tonight to start me on Solumedrol for 3 days. It's a form of steroids. Then I have my next infusion of new medicine next Tuesday. Good times I tell ya! Any way, I am looking forward to scrapping today and the next few days. I went to my M.S. support group last night at the library and it was a great time! We just sat and talked about nothing and everything! It was nice to bounce subjects off on other people in the same boat. Well that's the latest. Now I'm off to scrap! God bless you all!

It's a butterfly summer!

I'm not walking real good but I have lots more energy and had a great day yesterday and was up bright and early scrappin' today! Yesterday I needed some pewter brads for a LO and since I don't feel comfortable driving right now I called my DH and he said he would pick some up for me! How cool is that? So anyway he went to the local scrapbook store and all they had was Tim Holtz's idea-ology long fasteners (i.e. brads). I had counted how many I would need, 99, and guess how many were in the packet? You guessed it! 99! Weird huh? Not creepy weird but fun weird! So this is the LO I came up with
