Happy New Year

Doing this blog has been such a positive experience for me and I'm looking forward to 2011. I have enjoyed sharing my projects with you.

It has been a year of medical issues and surgeries. Hoping for no more surgeries and good health in 2011.

I don't have a positive report for Emma, one of my Airedales. She has an autoimmune disease and is not doing well.

Happy New Year,

Laurie

On the mend...

Hi everyone,

Well I have had way too much excitement this week. First on Dec 20th I have neck surgery to remove half a rod implant more hardware and fuse C2&C3 together. Now I will be completely fused from C2 to T3. I spent Christmas in the ER. Today my health seems to be looking up.

This afternoon I get home from the doctors appt and one of my Airedales couldn't walk. Emma has an auto immune disease and these are the symptoms of that disease. I gave her a large dose of Prednisone and a pain pill. I am really hoping she will be showing improvement by morning. Emma was getting bad prior to my surgery but after the pred and pain medicine she was back to normal. I am not in a position to walk her in the snow with my neck. I would appreciate any prayers out in blogland.

I've been working on some ideas and getting supplies together to start working on an altered item. If it works out it will be my shoebox swap with my Barnes & Noble craft group. I'll post a picture when I get it finished.

Cards from Stamp Camp






Joanne Huber, Stampin Up Rep has a monthly Stamp Camp. These are the cards we made last week.

Vinyl project for Christmas



I have been wanting to play with vinyl for a long time. Finely got around to it the other day. I cut Peace from the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge and put it on my dinning room mirror.
