September 8, 2010 Mojo Monday

Well I know it has been a while since I last did a Mojo Monday, but I'm happy to be back on board.  This was a fun one to do.  As soon as I saw the sketch I had a fair idea of what colors and patterns I was going to use.  I just loved how it turned out.   The papers are from Close to My Heart (Twinkle) and Basic Grey (Oliver).  The stamp set is Your Tweet from Close to My Heart.  The ribbon is Papertry Ink (Simply Chartreuse)  and the twine and metal tag is from Close to My Heart as well.

OH Orlando, How I Miss You!!

I would have to say that with out a doubt, Orlando has my heart.  I loved it there!  I loved the people, I loved the places, and even though it was cool for when we were there, I still loved the weather. 

We went to Orlando last Christmas and we took in the sites at Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World.  We were only there for 5 short days, and we were all sad to come home.  I know if we ever get the money, we will definitely go back.  (I was secretly hoping to win the $50 million so that we could go, well, forever.) 

I had made a Disney Journal before we left.  One for each of the kids, one for the grandparents and one for Wade and myself.  I don't regret making it for a minute.  Once you get home, all of the memories seem to fade away.  I was hoping I could keep some of the memories and mementos in my special journal so that I could have them always just a small reach away. 

I posted my video on YouTube on the finished project.  I didn't think it was anything special, only special to me.  But apparently I was wrong.  I had quite a few comments on people looking to make their own.  One lady even asked if I could make her one.  So I have attached a video on how to make your own. 

So even if you are going to Orlando, California, Paris, Rome, or just to your favorite place.  You can make one to share your special memories and keep them forever

Where Have I been?

Sorry for the long delay.  I have been away far too long.  I am coming up to about 3 months of living in pain.  There is a reason why.  After I taped this video, I found out I have Pelvic Congestion Syndrome.  What is that you might ask?  It is varicose veins on my uterus and one of my ovaries.  I have been doing lots of reading on this and it is very interesting.  It is more common in women than we think and women are often misdiagnosed. 

I am still waiting for an appointment with a specialist.  I know it is going to be a while before I can get it, but at least I know I’m not crazy anymore. 

I think the most difficult thing to go through, is knowing that you are sick, but all the test results are coming back normal. 

I also thought I would let everyone know that I will still be making videos and posting cards.  It will be less than normal, but I will try my best to do a card a month at the very least.

I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
