So did I mention that it's my birthday this weekend? I'm feeling so old as I l
ook back over everything that has happened since my last birthday. Last year at this time, I almost lost my wonderful hubby due to a serious illness and I wondered, "how in the world was I going to make it through this horrible event" but somehow, he survived and although he's been disabled and unable to work over the past year, we have come through it stronger and were now looking toward some big changes in our lives.

I also spent numerous hours in the hospital with my Daddy, who had major surg
ery to repair two abdominal aortic aneurysms and a hernia. This has been his third surgery in 3 years and at the age of 75, it has taken it's toll but he continues to bounce back and move forward for which I am very extremely grateful. And recently, my wonderful stepmother, whom I consider to be Mom, has had some health issues as well. She recently had her appendix out and is now experiences gallbladder problems and kidney stones so she's feeling pretty miserable and will probably have another surgery soon to remove her gallbladder. So it's been a busy summer as we help my parents out with whatever assistance they need as they both recover from surgeries and illness.

Now you know why I feel so old, it's been an exhausting year but I refuse to let it get me down. Always the optimists, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So here's a little lemonade! I'm having a huge birthday bash sale all weekend long. I've marked many of my kits down to $1.99 to celebrate my birthday with you. This is a great time to stock up and check some of those items off of your wishlist.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the blog swoop.

  4. I fell instantly in love with this awesome digital kit. Everything is so beautifully designed with the patterned papers augmented by your fun-loving elements. This is definitely a standalone kit that will make any photograph stand out with pride. I have had a wonderful time browsing this blog. The professionalism of your design, and the lovely layouts just draws the viewers' time and attention. I wish your parents the best in dealing with their illnesses. They are my age bracket, so I can empathize and sympathize with their illnesses that they must b bear. Your true essence comes through in the most positive way witin your designs. God bless!

  5. Beautiful!! Thanks so much for sharing.:)
