Back to Work

I am writing this post tonight to the sound of the wind howling and gusting against the walls of the house.   Something about this blistery kind of day compelled me to come back to the computer and once again blog.  I apologize for neglecting this little piece of my life for a while.  As I mentioned months ago, I have  focused my attention primarily on the care taking of my husband as he battles liver cancer.  But I have missed the crafting world so much and checking up on the latest with my favorite crafty blogs out there. These past few month have been a great learning experience for me.  My heart has soared to the highest heights and has also sunk to the lowest of lows. But I have survived and my husband has also.  Each day is taken one step at a time.  I am also grateful to all of you who have blessed me with your kind words and encouragement.  It was never my intention to completely disappear from blogging land, but it was a much needed break for me.  I have spent countless weeks now sitting in my craft room attempting to create but feeling no real great desire to lift my scissors to paper. But that all changed last week, I finally got my inspiration back and have completed several new projects to share with all of you.  I just hope that this newfound inspiration will continue....
A belated Valentine's day project to share with all of you. I had so much fun using this stamp set originally a part of a Halloween line by "Girl's Paperie"

I used this cute stamp set by "Hero Arts" with the two little owls in love, that I purchased last year during "Two Peas in a Bucket's Stamp Sale" I just saw that they have a digital stamp version of this owl set that comes with a really cute birdcage for pretty inexpensive. (I wish I had seen the digital version before I made my purchase). You can find it HERE

Thank you so much for visiting my little blog today. 


  1. what great cards-i love them both--those little owls are so darn cute!

  2. Beautiful projects. Thinking of you and your husband.

  3. We all do what we have to do. Your cards are gorgeous. I'm glad you're back. I continue to keep your hubby in my prayers. xoxo

  4. I have been checking on your blog while you were away, hoping to hear something.
    So happy you are able to create for awhile, hopefully take your mind to another place.
    You and your hubby have been in my thoughts, wishing you both the best.
