piddle fartin'...

I did get a tiny bit of time in the playroom yesterday...

it has been so cold here, so just biding my time until it warms up...
found this in one of my scrap drawers...

and switched this frame out...
super easy, super fast...

and I started on a valentine...

I need to print off the wording that will go inside and glue that down...
so will finish that later this weekend...

but in the meantime...
here are some more of the post card images that I found...

this is the one I worked with today...

and since some of you have asked...

here is an update on Courtney...

that spunky girl came home this week...
and other than some pain one night, she is doing great...
not ready to run any marathons yet...
but so happy to be home...
with coffee and vanilla creamer!
;0)
everything is functioning as it should be...
and they got all of the cancer...
you can't ask for more than that...
she is counting her blessings every day...
so grateful for all the prayers going up for her and her family...
because they have all gone through this with her...
her faith has just been amazing through all of this...
and her husband's...
she has a really good support system surrounding her...
just give her a couple of months to really get back on her feet...
and watch her go...
she is so ready to give back what she has been given...
  

now, I need more prayers to go up...
Craig's friend's (Tia) grandmother saw her doctor yesterday...
and they basically told her she was dying...
her organs are slowly shutting down...
she is having to get infusions...
got another one yesterday, and they set her up to get one every Thursday now...
her liver and kidney's are failing...
she is older...
but she hasn't done well since she had knee replacement surgery...
she had is done, but she kept having trouble and infections in it...
they finally decided she was allergic to the metal in the replacement and had to remove it...
so she hasn't been able to walk since then...
there is just no bone in the knee...
and not being able to get around very good has been hard...
and she's been like this for several years now...
on her last blood work she had done, she had no iron in her system...
so they did the first infusion...
and now another one yesterday with this news...
they didn't say how long she has, but it can't be very long...
so if you could remember them in your prayers this weekend...
it would be so appreciated...

Hi Tete! That's great news about Courtney! Glad she's at home with her loved ones! Prayers to Tia. It's great to see you in your playroom! You're creating some pretty stuff! Keep it up girlfriend! It's funny when I'm still having fun in my playroom and the husband is ready to hit the sack, I'll whine and say that I still want to play! He'll just sigh and say it's 11:00 pm, time for bed. I swear, I hit my 2nd wind around 9:00. BTW, thanks for letting me know that your link to my blog is ok. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!
