So...how is everybody doing? Let me tell you; my life has taken a sharp right turn but I'm working to get back on track. If you follow me on Twitter or FB, you were inundated with updates regarding my mother this past weekend. I'm happy to report she is home from the hospital and doing good.

As I said through Twitter, I believe I am stronger for/with my kids than I am for/with my parents - not sure why that is, but it's so true! Delighted mom is home and dad and she are managing just fine!

It's been forever since I've had time to craft AND the last projects I made I had to photograph with my phone (not these photos, some upcoming ones) because I was running out of time before I needed to hit the road to be with mom.

Anyway, this is a notebook with a pocket that I made for a dear friend for her birthday; she loves yellow so I incorporated as much of that as possible. Made another super fun flower from a paperback book along with 2 different ribbons from PTI.

The next project was a card I made for a challenge - weeks ago. LOL Yes, you guessed it, I never got a chance to post it! HA!

Thanks for popping in; I hope you have a GREAT Friday and an even better holiday weekend! Hugs dear friends, ~M.
