It's Baaaaccckkk

Great news!!!  My mojo seems to be coming back.  I'm so thankful.  I went for over three weeks without doing any crafting whatsoever.  I've never gone that long without crafting, unless my health prevented me from doing so.  I was getting a bit worried.  Here I have ALL of these craft supplies and I had no desire to make a thing.  What if I stayed that way forever? lol  Normally if my mojo is a bit lacking I at least putter around and make backgrounds or color images.  I didn't even do that.  I hope my mojo had fun wherever it went.  I'm thinking it was somewhere warm and tropical. ;)
 The awesome rubber stamp I used is from Heart and Soul Rubber Stamp Co.  Sue carries a fabulous selection of Christian stamps and lots of other great stamps too.  If you're on a tight budget, you will really appreciate being able to get any of Sue's unmounted stamps for just $1.50 each.  Sue also offers her stamps on cling mount and wood and has grab bags available.  A friend sent me some card stock embossed with the Cuttlebug Allegro folder, because I love that folder and don't have it.  It makes a beautiful background.  I'm hoping Santa will leave one in my stocking. :)

Challenges I'm entering:
Word Art Wednesday
Scripture Thursday @ Little Birdie Blessings
Stampin Sisters in Christ - Make a card of praise using music

  • My dh has been able to start the process of laser surgery on his lip.  Ask me about this if you want to hear the details of how God worked this out.  We didn't think dh would ever be able to have this surgery.
  • My new Ott light.  A wonderful gift that is helping me see so much better when I'm crafting.
  • My doctors.  Parts of Kenya have only one doctor per every 50,000 people and I have multiple doctors who care for me.  I'm beyond blessed - I'm spoiled.  
  • Giving to others.  There are so many in need and there are lots of ways to give - not just financially. 
Have a terrific day!!!

Inky hugs!

Fall Tag Banner

Hi friends.  I'm slipping in here with this Autumn project before November is over.  I know many of you are already on to Christmas projects, but I march to the beat of a different drum. :)  Many thanks to Keri at Pressed Down, Shaken Together for the idea and tutorial for this banner.  Keri also has a great tutorial for a Christmas tag banner.  I apologize for the poor quality of my pictures.  The light in my living room is terrible.  The wall paint doesn't even look like the color it really is.  Not that you're here to see my living room wall paint anyhow. lol
 After I saw the picture of my banner I decided that I wanted to add a piece of a flourish die cut to the pumpkins to look like a vine.   I was too busy lazy to take a new picture.  Sorry.

  • I've lost 40 lb. now!!!  That's 80 lb. total lost since I was on a high dose of Prednisone long term.
  • Christmas music - I love it and couldn't resist any longer.  I've been singing all day.
  • Rice cheese - A great alternative when you have food allergies.
Have a terrific day!!!

Inky hugs!
