Finally.....a card!

My hubby wheeled me into my stamp room, I loaded up a basket of supplies, and brought them back to the hospital bed. I had a chance to play and it felt so good. I made hubby this card for Valentines day. He was surprised to see a handmade card after all this time. Yay............ I have to thank my friend, grammat for sending me this Cricut cut and the ticket. The circle sentiment is from the Cutting Cafe', isn't it cute? Thanks grammat!

The dilema and the Joy of Crafting

As crafters, I think we have all had this thought..........I do not need to buy one more crafting supply! I have enough paper, embelishments, and tools, to last a lifetime. Then, a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer, and how long is a lifetime? I decided that it would not be fair to my husband to buy one more thing. After all, what is he going to do with my entire craft room, I certainly do not need to add more to it. So, for the past several months I haven't purchased anything, deleted all of the craft site emails, stayed away from Michaels, and stopped watching YouTube videos on card making. But then, Hobby Lobby came to California, and opened up a new store right in my city! Then, CHA came to town and I dared to watch videos of the new products being released. I found joy! You crafters understand, right? Who ever said that crafting isn't a wonderful form of therapy? I started watching card making videos, a few days ago, and dare I admit, I just went to ebay and ordered a stamp! It felt good! Last night I could not sleep because I was planning on how to get craft supplies from my craft room, out to the hospital bed I stay in. I found a new hope and a new enthusiasm. Tomorrow,dh has a day off and for once I do not have a doctor appointment. I think there is a Michaels coupon in the paper............hmmm......dare I go? Maybe, just maybe :)
