NOVEMBER SNEAK PEAK!!!

Hi Everyone~ just wanted to show you some sneak peaks of what's coming your way...soon! Lots of beautiful and awesome tags.


There will be NO Swap for December, but on Dec. 1st, I will open the January swap. That gives you the month of December to create your tags...maybe if you get a moment? (yeah right in the middle of all the craziness) so, if you're interested, please send me an email and I will sign you up for January 2012. That was weird just writing the new year 2012. omgosh................ 


I hope everyone is doing well. Now that the Holidays are upon us it's time for (Didn't we just have Christmas?) wonderful dinners and beautiful desserts, family and friends, Christmas Trees and lights~ I love the lights! shopping shopping shopping! Oh, and more shopping!



My favorite time during December~ my daughter and I usually go out to the Pleasanton Mall, CA~ and can you guess what we do? We shop, shop and shop some more, and then my legs give out and need to rest. That's when we go to the cafe at Nordstrom's and have lunch. I love their onion soup with all that cheese and their yummy dishes.


*HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU*

Warm Hugs, Velma

Thank You.....

For all the calls, text messages, comments and emails I received from all you. Your heartfelt words, so much support through the process of my Mother's illness even up to the end. Your prayers, cards, flowers, all the food and an awesome beautiful handmade "dream catcher". I can never thank you enough. Thank you for caring and just being here for me~ words cannot describe. To my special friends ~ I'm thanking you a million times.

I somehow don't feel like myself but I do know what's missing, as when my Beautiful Mother died, a piece of me died with her. If she were here she wouldn't like that very much. And I could hear her words......."You have a family to take care of, they need you, take care of yourself, do some things that make you happy, travel with Steven, go sit down and scrapbook, and clean out that garage and don't forget to turn off the garage light". If she knew how many times I go to my room and laydown crying, she would tell me "get out of that bed and wipe those tears"!

So, slowly I have been walking into my scraproom (which was once my Mother's Room) pick something up and put it right down. Can you tell I can't concentrate? Ok, maybe I can do one unfinished project. Everything I do is for about 5 minutes ~then I have tears and walk out of the room. This is a project that I started before everything happened. So this is the mini I would like to finish or should I say "try" to finish. Just trying to keep busy. Wish me luck. Oh, one more thing.............to all of you...........YOUR THE GREATEST! Warm Hugs, Velma
