Mothers Day

Hello happy crafters!! May is here and flowers and trees are blooming and I am loving it!  For those that follow me regularly our new Tempurpedic "Cloud" Mattress arrives later today wahooo! I cannot wait for it will be our third mattress in the past 5 months and I am so hoping it is our last. I don't know maybe I am crazy but I think if you pay over 2000.00 for a mattress it should automatically be comfortable and they were not! If you are thinking of going this route...I highly suggest purchasing only from a place that gives you 90 - 120 trial. It is costing us 175.00 to swap out but if your miserable it is well worth it. This is another upgrade so if it is not comfortable for 3500.00 just shoot me and do it quickly!!

Ok, I am going to talk very frank and open here and if one person hears and listens to me....It will be so worth it. 13 years ago I had a colon-resection due to diverticulitis. This surgery saved my life for they found colon cancer in it's early stage.  I had treatment and have been cancer free all these years. I go every single year for it is so important for early detection. The longer you wait the more it spreads and the less colon they can save and it will metastasize outside of the colon and spread to other organs.  I am having a little bit of problems on my way for another screening. It's a pain in the butt to do, literally but so worth the outcome. Please for you and your family have your screenings done. Please if you don't do it for it for your love ones.

Now happier things!!! Last week I was commissioned to make 15 cards and family members with birthdays and of course Mother's Day! Part of my order is for 9 Mother Day's Cards and I would love to share these two with you!! Isn't she a cutie pie!

Hi Colleen,

They are both wonderful but I love the image in the first as well as the shade of green. In the second, I like the flower - so bright and cheerful.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers... and hope that your tests go well. You are such a sweet and affectionate person... I wish you the best.

I am happy that you will get the right mattress at last.

Thanks for sharing about your life - so much to learn, Colleen.

Hugs and kisses,
