I will come back with close ups of each thing – but for now maybe you can see what has kept me so busy!!

The retreat was fun, I got to spend time with awesome people. Sadly, on Friday of the retreat I fainted, hit my head a little and I have been trying to recuperate ever since.

CASEing Kelly Blog Hop

CASEing Kelly Blog Hop Banner

Welcome to this very special Blog Hop that has been put together for the amazingly talented and oh-so-sweet Kelly Latevola 

This hop is comprised of a group of crafters each saying “thank you” to Kelly for all her generosity and kindheartedness. In Kelly’s CASEing Genius posts, she always takes THREE cards from the designer she is CASEing, and makes ONE card inspired by those three cards. I was featured by Kelly back in June of this year – you can see that post HERE! We were each invited to so the same with 3 of Kelly’s cards.  
kellycard1 kellycard2 kellycard3
These are the 3 Kelly cards I chose – The first one inspired me to use a yellow strip down the side and to add sequins! The second card had me reaching for a girl stamp to add – and I also decided I wanted my yellow strip to be plaid like the green behind the beautiful girl Kelly colored!! And in my mind I turned the last card on it’s side and added my sentiment in the white space!!

Here is how my CASE of the beautiful, wonderfully sweet Kelly went:

I love the saying on this card – Kelly knows how to add BEAUTY to every day!!!

BLOGAVERSARY Cards Received # 2

I feel like I need to give some information to you!! This is really hard to share with you – but I am dealing with a serious bout of Depression – it has just been a struggle to do anything this last few weeks!! Most of what I have been posting and doing with my BLOGAVERSARY was done ahead during my break!! I want you to know that I am ok, but I really am having a hard time!! It has not been this bad for a long time! I WANT to be my cheerful, encouraging self but I just am really not able to find the strength and energy to do many of the things I love to do – crafting, blogging about it, and visiting your blogs and leaving the comments  that I normally do (to say nothing of laundry, keeping up the house, meals etc)!!! Please know that I will do the best I can and I will hope that is enough!!

I will continue on with my Blogaversary because it was planned and scheduled ahead of time!!

But I cannot guarantee what else I will be able to do above that!! SO SORRY!!!

With that – HERE are the cards I received this week – Some of you sweet people sent me a little something too!! I want you to know I APPRECIATE each and EVERY one of you!!!

First card came from Monika Reeck of the blog Creative with Monika
