Happy Tuesday!

Hello there! Hope you are warm and snugly where ever you may be. It's cold and rainy here in Northern Maryland. I rather have snow then cold rain that goes right through ya. Today was a good day, I spent most of it coloring and making one huge mess in this craft room. Tomorrow I won't be so happy with myself but for now it's good:)

I was honored, being asked, to be a Guess Designer on design team!  Rusty, the owner of Oozak, is one super nice person and has supported everything I have ever done online. He is a monthly sponsor on The Outlawz Challenges and Through The Craft Room Door Challenges which BTW he is sponsoring this week! So of course I had to jump at the chance when Melanie asked me to be GDT!

My current new love of stamps  are La-La Land and  Oozak has  many of them in stock for you! I chose Mod Marci for my card.  My father loved music and he could pick up almost any instrument and play it by ear.  Did you ever here anyone play the spoons? That's right, two kitchen stainless steel spoons back to back and my dad would jam with the best of them. Here is what playing spoons looks like: You Tube- spoons. Any how, right before Christmas, my father started playing with his guitar and that is how I came to making "Mod Marci" Isn't she adorable!?!

So come on and join us at Oozak's Challenge Blog; The Theme is Pink and bling!

This month's prize will be a COPIC CLASS from Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative.

May 7, 1923 - December 31, 2012

Hi everyone! Hope you enjoyed the holidays and wishing you a very blessed new year.

I have been MIA for the past few weeks, and even though I don't have anything to post, I wanted to tell you why. On Christmas my mother told me my father was ill in bed and had the chills. I only spoke to him for a few short moments and he kept telling me how cold he was. On Dec. 27 he was diagnosed with pneumonia and admitted to the hospital. December 29 they told him he was in renal failure, he was 89 years old and refused dialysis. He was discharged from the hospital to home on December 30, the same days my brothers and I arrived at my parents home.  He died December 31 at 7:25 AM.

I am still in a state of shock and cannot believe this has happened.

If you are a subscriber to TTCRD Magazine - please know I am putting it together - just a little bit slowly this time around.


Time of day
