Feeling Better

Wow, cannot believe it has been so long since my last post. We are all feeling much better now. Thank God! LOL. This winter has been MY worst for sickness, but better for Emily. I have made a few cards and another layout and will take pictures of the cards later. I do have the picture of the layout I did. It is Lucy from peanuts. I did this for a swap I'm in. Hope you enjoy.

Sickness strikes again

I don't know about any of you out there, but I as so ready for Spring to arrive! I have been sick for the past week, so have the girls. Now my dear hubby has succumbed to it as well!

Oh well, this too shall pass they tell me. I hope it does and fast! I was sick in bed for the first few days, and am now just getting up and able to do a simple thing only to have to rest before doing anything else. Tomorrow is day 7 for me. Relief is in sight, just like the sun I see today.

We are getting our home ready for a homestudy (adopting granddaughter), and trying to do the things necessary to pass this inspection. Hubby is sick as well and frankly hasn't helped me like he should. So guess who was up till God knows what hour doing the ceiling. HE was!

I hope this all comes together like it should and fast! I want this done and over with so we can get back to being normal again, or at least as normal as we were before this! LOL.

If any of you out there say prayers, put some in for us, we can use all the prayers we get. Have a blessed day!

It is amazing how much we live on a schedule! I keep the girls on a schedule that suits them and makes them more easy to live with. Let me explain, children with learning disabilities, learn and fuction better with set schedules.

Now that said, I must confess, I too, have a disability I have lived with most if not all my life. That would be ADHD. People that know me would say, I could figure that out just watching you fly around doing things. LOL. I didn't realize this until a couple of years ago. Some would say that this really isn't a disability that is bad. And others would disagree. I do like being able to do things quickly, and doing several things at a time, however when I want to slow down and go to sleep, sometimes I have a problem. Hence the reason I am blogging at 2 or 3 in the morning.

That said, I try to use my ADHD constructively. The times I cannot sleep I try to use wisely and get caught up on things I have fallen behind on, like swaps, or classes I will teach, or even come up with new ideas for workshops. Sometimes in the wee hours of the morning I can make up a dozen or so cards, or a few layouts to be used, or given away at a later time.

This morning I should be at my table working on a layout for a gathering I will be having (weather permitting) this morning. I have an idea for an easy and quick Easter layout I hope all will like.

I will post the pictures later on today of the completed layout and possibly some more Easter cards I have been working on. Have a great and blessed day.

Once I get the hang of placing these pictures I will be a happier woman. LOL. I have the option of them stamping easter eggs or flowers to add to the layout if they so choose.

This year I am going to set goals for me to reach. So here goes: scrapbook layouts - 200; cards 200.

Now I have finished 4 layouts, and have finished 150 cards! Looks like I need to work on more layouts!

I will post my finished layouts here. As far as the cards, you have already seen some of them. So lets get the show on the road!
