About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Stronger than you think

Happy Happy Friday...
And a whole week off of waking up early to get my son up for school.  SPRING BREAK!!  Still makes me mad, though, that they don't make spring break to go with Easter.  At any rate...

My card this week is for one of my best friends I've known since 1984.  She  has been married for 22 years and her husband wants a separation because he "just doesn't feel like being married anymore."  So she has been pretty much forced to move out and live in an apartment for 13 months to "see how things go".  This poor girl has been in love with this man ever since she said "I do".  And now she has had everything yanked out from under her.  She deals with her emotions on a day by day basis and thank God she has more friends around like me that care about her.  So I had to make a card just for her to remind her that she has more in her than she knows.

I have REALLY fallen in love with the Donna Downey stamps.  There is so much you can do with them.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great weekend.
