Blog Candy at Karyn's

How would you like to win this?!?!?! A friend was over awhile back and telling me about visiting her mom who lives at the Nursing home. She said it was the holidays but it was so dreary in the rooms there and she was wondering what we could do to put a smile on their faces. So we hatched a plan to make some simple but fun cheery cards to share with them. We further decided to get some Valentine chocolates and put one with each card and take them there for Valentines day for the workers to pass out with the dinner trays.Then we started going ok but ummm how can we make enough?!?!LOL that my blog reader friends is where you come in! If you would like to take a chance on winning this great candy which includes:Studio G Clear Stamps VS4895andQueen & Co Shaped Brads - SWAK & Conversational Hearts (THAT IS 2 BRAND NEW PACKS!)andLil Davis Designs Outlined Chipboard letters in Bubblegum PinkETA: $15 Gift Certificate from FireCracker Designs by Pamela!

Update on me

I havwe to push myself. but i just cannot do it at times. plus the dr. put me on pills for sugar also. been getting use to that also. I will let you know what is happening as it happens. more blood tests is to go on and i go back to my family dr and the kidney dr also. so i will let you all know. many thanks. Monica

New Year & New Post

I haven't crafty of late and I haven't stamped or scrapbooked anything as i have been sick or not feeling just at all well. Wednesday I go back to the kidney dr. to get my tests results back and the xrays also. I am hoping to get back into my groove sometime soon as I miss doing something. right now I have reading books especially the book of mormon. I am almost finished with it again and will be reading it took everything I have just to do everyday things around here. when the sun shines I do not want to see it as it is to sunny for my eye when my very bad migraines are in session. which is almost everyday. lets hope i can get them under control again. I haven't been on the computer to much either just enough to update the anti-virus and off the computer I am. so that is what is happening to me. Monica
