SHOCKED ? AMAZED ? Yes, I still have a blog. So lets play catch-up!
Okay, I realize I have been away from my blog for over 1 year. It was so hard to come back and post things. I kept reading about my final trip to see Zio Corrado and it made me sad. Now, I can look back on it, and am comfortable with it. I am so happy I did have the opportunity to see him again.
Healthwise, you know I relapsed last January 2011 and had to have more surgery and then chemo every week until mid-July. I went to every other week chemo in August.I was allowed to return to work in August, although my doctor would have preferred me wait a few more weeks/months. This Friday, I have my 3 month scans and chemo again. I don't expect any bad news. Frankly, I am waiting for the May scans. If those are good, chances are I will move to having chemo once a month instead of weekly. That would give me more stamina, energy and normality.
Personally, I have been working hard on my Stampin Up Business, as well as my personal cardmaking and scrapbooking. I went to the Leadership and Regional Conferences and had a wonderful time scooting around in an electronic chair. The convention center was tooo big for me to walk, especially with low blood counts.
This spring I have 2 stamp clubs, will be doing monthly card classes, and starting a beginner and an intermediate scrapbooking class. Am so excited about doing more classes with my friends and customers. I so love my crafts!
The photo aboveis a "cased" (means I used someone else's design and modified it) card that I will be teaching at my BRING A FRIEND Card Class on February 11th. I offered my friends and customers the opportunity to bring a friend to class and it cost $20 for both of them together, instead of $20 per person. Then I also opened the class to a morning and afternoon session. Out of 24 seats, I already have 18 seats filled and there is still a week to go before the signups close! Woohoo! So I cased a card at the Leadership Make and Take and put my spin on the card. The original was done in greens, and I did mine in blues instead. Take a look at both cards. Not sure why blogger makes all the photos go to the top of the post, but that is okay.
I will be back in a few days to show you some cards I swapped at Leadership and some cards I received in the swaps.
