Well here we are at the end of October.  I have been doing everything but card making.  Went to a couple of plays and to Disney to see La Nouba.  I have also been busy playing a lot of golf.  Somedays are good and some days are bad but it does get me outside and moving around.   I am starting to finally get use to my new leg socket.  This is wonderful because I need to move around.  I have been a little down the last week or so.  It is funny but I have been busy busy yet feel so unhappy.  Sure wish I could figure out what is wrong. Ah well life, it is what it is. 

I have a lot of cards to get working on.  I did do some holiday ones for swap and they turned out okay and then I did make some for kids with Spina Bifida and now it is time to me to get going on mine.  I have a lot of birthday thank you's to do and of course there are Christmas cards to do.  I also need to get some birthday cards done so I have a few back up ones.  Sometimes I wonder how I had time to go to work everyday.  Retirement I guess is pretty good. 

Anyway today I completed a card for last Fridays FFAF challenge at StampTV.  Hope you like it.

Also my youngest grandson, Cohen, has become a model.  My friend Juliana sells crafts on (art4ubyme) and used a photo of Cohen wearing a knitted hat she made.  She makes all kinds of stuff so check her stuff out at  Here is a picture of the hat which I must say is very cute well look at the model.

Two Weeks

Well it has been two weeks and I was busy the entire time.  I had a guest visiting from Germany, Christina Franz.  Chrissie and I cooked, baked and shopped.  Oh we did a lot of shopping.  We took a class at Archiever's in Maple Grove and made 4 Christmas cards.  My youngest daughter, Katy, went with us and the 3 of us had a terrific afternoon. 

Chrissie and Katy and some of Katy's friends went to Oktoberfest in Minneapolis and they tell me it was great.

I really didn't do much card making during the last two weeks.  I did do a lot of shopping for card making supplies.  Wow there are tons of new stuff out there.  I sent Chrissie back to Germany with lots of card making supplies.  We have a new recruit.  I had a great time during her visit although I must say I am tired.  I did more walking in the last two weeks than I have in the last 4 years. 
 Now it is time to get down to business. Have to start working on holiday cards.  I also have a few birthday cards to make so look forward to new cards on the blog this week.  I am also taking a class on using Spellbinders nestibilities so I am hoping that my cards will become more interesting and dimensional.
