Finished at last!

Well I think I have let you know that  I am trying out for the Wild Orchid Crafts design team on youtube. So I finally finished my projects and am getting ready to upload my video. Keep your fingers crossed for me this is a little harder than I thought it would be. Actually putting out my own creations for someone else to judge is daunting and a little weird. It is a vulnerable feeling lol, didn't know that I would feel this way but I do so heres hoping. I wanted to tell the few of you who wanted to trade die cuts to e-mail me and that way I can reply to you. I think this would be a lot of fun girls! Ok heres goes something....

Crafting Crafting Crafting

Hi All,
Hope everyone is fine and having a great Saturday. I wanted to know if there was anyone out there who would like to do a die/cricut cut swap?? I thought it might be fun and economical LOL to have a swap where several of us with different dies could swap light weight chipboard dies or punches. I thought we could just stick like 10 in a plastic baggie and put them in a card and send them off. You all can send them to me and I will parsel them out. Maybe we could even just do a wish list amongst ourselves and then whoever wants what we can send them a few of them if we have them. Let me know your thoughts. I just won the Old Jalope by Tim Holtz and I think it is adorable. I have several others but would really like to have some nesties but they are so expensive!. Ok Let me know.
Love Deanna

Wednesday WOOHOO

It's Wed. and my twins went home from the hospital today. I stayed up there with them and my daughter the whole time and it was nice to be able to help. Both my Son-in-Law and my Daughter got the stomach flu while we were up there. Jim stayed home, but of course Shelly was there. I thought I had escaped, everyone was sick but me!! Yeah........... Not so fast this morning on getting home I started a temp and throwing up Yippee 24 hour flu. LOL this really is getting to be ridiculous you all. I am better this afternoon so I thought I would get on here and share the good news that the boys are home and we found the most wonderful Dr. so it was not all bad. So on the mend here still a little cold though.
Waiting (not so patiently) on SUMMER.
Very soon some crafting things are coming!!!!!

 Well first order of business here's one for global warming, Snowing on the 15th of May in Colorado!
Stupid weather!
Hospital time for >>>> Twins! We (the twins, their mother and I) were admitted into the hospital 3 days ago for pneumonia.  Shelly and me are really working keeping them happy poor little tots! Their Dad is sick at home.
My daughter Bethany is sick with fever and cough but Children's hospital said to just keep her hydrated and full of  fever reducer unless she gets worse. Racquel and Esther two other daughters at home are both down with fevers, nausea and general ick!
I think I need a vacation to warmer climes. Anybody want a worn out house guest? lol.
Actually doing really well and keeping our spirits up. Maybe by the time the weather turns to summer we will be well enough to enjoy it.
Keeping warm in shivery, Sicko Colorado

God Bless the USA!

God forbid that I rejoice at the death of any man, even this man. But relief and satisfaction are emotions that have overwhelmed me in the past 12 hours. I have to admit to elation on first hearing about the death of bin Laden. But I quickly turned to more somber feelings. I am thankful that our world no longer has this man in it. I am thankful to the men and women of our armed forces who put themselves in harms way every day to try to make the world not just the U.S. a safer and better place to live. I remembered my shock and dismay on 9/11. Again, I grieved for the loss of innocent life that was taken then. The horror of hearing about attacks in Israel, Britain, Spain and around the world. It makes no difference if this man was responsible for all of the terror, he made others believe it was possible and gave them courage to try their own destruction. I know that this brings a fresh wave of security issues, more danger for our soldiers abroad, but we will get through it. God has blessed the U.S. and he will continue. These are historic times we live in. So whether you are a fellow citizen of these United States or a citizen of another great country, stop today to reflect on the truth of the matter that justice has been done. The world is a better place for not having this master-mind of murder in it.
God bless not only the U.S. but all of the other countries who have put troops on the ground to stop this meaningless violence against ordinary people. With a humble heart and thankful relief I say
Thank you Lord
