I have discovered Pocket Page Letters group on Facebook!  I've been having the best time making them and meeting new pen pals! I would strongly suggest checking them out on Facebook under pocket letter pals! The ladies are awesome and the creativity is incredible! Would love to know what you all think about it. I'll be posting pictures of the 2 letters received and the letters I made.

Have a great week. Happy crafting!

I'm back

Wow it's been a long time since I've blogged. I'm back and hope to blog again at least weekly!

Last year was a challenge to say the least. Had surg 3-19-2014 and had complications from it. Wound up not eating for 5 weeks, had nausea 24/7 and threw up anything that I at or drank.  I was referred to a different SURG who diagnosed me with bile reflux. I take 3 meds daily and most symptoms are gone. When the dr did my last endoscopy he saw bile backing up from my stomach and recommended gastric bypass. I'm not excited about that and I'm trying to get a second opinon before I agree to have it done. I lost a lot of muscle mass and had to do physical therapy to get my strength back. Over the past 3 months I've been getting better. I started walking with a friend and we are up to 4 miles at a time. It takes me 20 minutes to walk a mile now. I'm so excited.

My friends were really worried about me. I'm back to talking  and skyping with my crafting buddies. While I was sick I couldnt get on the computer because I was so sick. It feels awesome to be crafting and physically active now. I'm going to post some pictures of what I've made lately.

I couldn't figure out how to post pictures so I'll have to figure that out later.

Have a great weekend!
