Get up and try


I see I haven't posted much so far here in 2014.

I closed the doors at Papercraft Star,  very sad for me.

I am still coordinating the design team at The Kraft Journal, but I don't often participate in the challenges, so things are looking a little weak here !

Still juggling the medical aspects of my husband's disease, as he is on a two week schedule for gastric procedures at the hospital.  So so hard for him, and for me to watch him, dealing with all of this.

So, that is a quick update !

This post is going over to Just Us Girls, where I was the guest designer last month.  One of my favorite challenges, for sure !!

Here is their photo inspiration for January ...

and my valentine ...

Hope you like it !!
