It’s been a while!

Standard

It’s been a LONG time since I posted. There’s been a lot going on in our world. Some of the best things are the addition of three new grandchildren this year! We were blessed with twin granddaughters in January, and a grandson in August! I adopted a cat last month and we formed an instant bond! I haven’t been crafting as much this past year, because after spinal surgery last year, my lower spine collapsed, accompanied with serious pain. My husband’s kidney cancer came back with a vengeance, and we’ve been busy fighting that battle! We have to make a big decision about whether to try a third type of chemo pill. The side effects are much worse than with the previous medication. We have to think about whether his quality of life will be worse while he is taking the pills. The pills are not a cure. They might keep the new tumors from getting worse, or possibly shrink some of them. Because of previous strokes and heart issues, surgery would be too risky, and some tumors would be hard to access. We are praying that we make the right decision.

Since my mobility has been limited, I have been Pinteresting (is that a word?) like crazy! I have lots of followers! Lately, I have been taking time to click to the original website before pinning, to avoid posting to risky links, or links that don’t have instructions. With over 9,000 pins, I am not close to having them all cleaned up, but I am working on it. My latest craft interest has been crocheting. I am working on getting Christmas gifts done, so I will post pictures soon! My Pinterest boards are listed under Kristy Speer if you are interested. I don’t have my own work on there, but I find plenty of interesting ideas! I have 66 boards and over 4500 followers, so I hope you will check it out!

CASE Copy and Share Everything

The card on the left is one I found on Pinterest and I decided to CASE. I made the card on the right.  I used Stampin Up Basic Black and Very Vanilla Card stock, Pearl Basic Jewels(119247), Designer Series Paper from the Modern Medley set (126926), the Decorative Label Punch (120907), and the Scallop Trim Border Punch (118402). The flower stamp is from the Best of 25 Years-Flowers set (133342) and the sentiment is from the Lacy and Lovely stamp set (122887) clear mount. I still need to learn how to make professional looking photos of my work like the one on the left!
