About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Latest Project

After some debate with myself and my finances, I decided to sign up for a class making this picture.
Since paper crafting/card making and such is what I do, I thought it appropriate to make something that I can put up on my wall.  (For now, the photo was taken on my floor)


I just couldn't get the photo to come out much clearer.  It is 12 x 12" and in a black frame.  Maybe I will try again when it is on my wall.  The colors are in teal and aqua and gray and silver.
I would also like to make a Spring, Summer and Fall picture. 
Tomorrow I leave for a scrap booking retreat but I think I would rather work on making Christmas cards.  It will be good to get away and I feel I should be able to get a lot done!
