some updated news

My school won a cricut expression!! I thought that was pretty awesome!!

My son is scheduled to have surgery next week and I will be staying down there with him for 3 weeks or until they send him home. I have arranged a bunch of people to look after my youngest child in my absence. I hope everything runs smoothly while I am away. I will keep you updated from my iphone to let you know how everything is going.

Janome sew mini

I just got this in the mail yesterday. I got to try it out this morning and get it ready for use on a project. I got this for my paper projects so my big one can stay downstairs for my fabric and quilting projects. I bought this on sale from Hancock fabrics online. sale price plus shipping was $50 still a bit much but I really wAnted this one cause I heard good reviews about it. now I will have sewing on my projects.

fiskars scissor sharpened {enabler alert}

never buy another pair of scissors with this must have tool. I bought this at michaels with 50% off coupon. I think I found it in the stencil aisle but I'm not sure. I think it was $12 or something cheap like that. I sharpened all my scissors and they are all better than new!!! you guys really need this.

my little one taking my pic

this is me with my new hair cut. I have always had long hair and I hated it so the other day I took out the clippers and shaved it all off. at least I have a good shaped head....lol!

bday card

I used sweethearts for the frog
Cindy loo for the mushroom
walk in my garden turtle

I used my homemade glimmer mist on the mouth and some diamond glaze on the crown and ribbon for his tongue.

I just wanted to explain further about what's been going on in my life lately. My 22 year old son has been officially diagnosed with cancer--again! He had it once when he was 17 and went through chemotherapy and radiation therapy to get rid of it. well its five years later exactly and he has it again. he may only need to go to Boston and have surgery to remove the tumor. I pray he only needs surgery. he is so skinny to begin with that he won't take chemotherapy and radiation well. I think he is going to Boston on monday for a consult. I will keep you all posted about what's going on. Now this is why I voted for the pink journey cart in the rewards section!! My son is an angel and a trooper and will go through this like it's a little speed bump in his life.
