Update and Thank Yous

I want to thank everyone of you who expressed concern for Jim and sent such warm well wishes. It meant a lot that you took the time to drop a line. Thankfully the fires are out, the air is clear and Jim is doing well.
A special Thank You to Mary Marsh of The Charmed Life for the lovely blog candy. Sorry I didn’t take a photo of it all
but Mary was extremely generous. 

I am sorry for my long absences. I took an unplanned last minuet trip. With Jim’s illness I am not often able to leave him for long. Whenever he feels well enough I drive the three hours to visit with friends and family.

Earlier this year I purged my craft closet and gave my niece Maggie everything I no longer needed for her scrapbooking. Since then I found some wonderful storage at a yard sale and I’ve reorganized The Closet. This eliminated my need for quite a few old storage items including several sets of leftover metal grid storage cubes. As crafters we all have a tendency to make a mess but picture a 16 yr. old crafter with no storage system at all. Maggie and I spent several fun filled hours setting up cubes and organizing her supplies, much to her mother‘s delight and relief. When her parents came home from work I left her to do the finishing touches. They are such sweet friends and I do wish I could have spent more then a few hours with them but my time was limited.

It was a joy to visit with my son and family. Just sitting and get caught up with my oldest son was wonderful. My 16 yr. old grandson thought it was fun to put his arm around my shoulders and look down at me. He is 6’1” tall and still growing. My DIL and granddaughter took me to a few thrift and craft shops which was a lot of fun and I did find a few bargains. All to soon I was on my way home again.

As some of you know I have a bad neck and periodically it goes out on me. Once again I turned my head 'just so' and out it went. Thankfully I am recovering but I haven't felt like creating or even visiting any of you. I plan to take a few more days to heal completely.

My Mojo has taken a hike to parts unknown and taken my inclination to create with it. I’ll be back when they’ve returned and I have something to share with you. In the mean time I will be stopping by to visit with you all again.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks again to all of you who have so kindly left your sweet comments and well wishes for Jim.
Have an Amazing Day!

  1. Bernie, you were missed. So glad your husband is doing better but hate to hear about your neck. I'm glad to hear you got to spend some time with family and friends and I am sure your niece loved you helping her get organized. Take care and hope you get your neck straightend out soon and get your mojo back.

  2. Thank you Bernie it's nice to know your husband is doing better but sorry to hear about your neck, just rest up and all of you keep well:) Sandra H

  3. Glad your husband is feeling a bit better. sorry about your neck. I can sympathise as mine is a problem as a result of a rear end car shunt a few years ago, which means regular visits to the chiropractor.

  4. Hi Bernie, sorry to hear about the fire, only got round today and seeing this now. Glad to hear everything is ok now and that your husband is feeling better. Sorry about your neck too... no wonder your mojo was MIA with all this. Hope to see you creating soon again. Hugs xxx

  6. Hi Bernie

    Like you, I am on a huge blogland catch up too .. .. life has been so very busy just recently .. .. but never boring so that is good!!

    I was pleased to read that Jim is feeling much better and that you were able to get away for a few days. That will have done you the world of good and re-charged your batteries a little.

    It sounds like you had a fabulous time with your niece. I bet she is over the moon with her new craft goodies.

    Thank you for your good wishes on my blog Bernie. Things will sort themselves out I am sure.

    Love Jules xx
