I know I haven't posted anything in over a year.  But I have a very good reason.  I was sick for over 1 year.  It was horrible and I was in excruciating pain 24/7.  It took me forever to get into a specialist.  Once I did see him, I had to wait yet again for my exploratory surgery (because they didn't know what was wrong with me.)  I came out of the surgery at the end of May 2011 and for the first time in a long time, I felt good.  Not great, but good. 

As each day went on, I was feeling better and better.  I then decided about 3 weeks ago that it was time to stop taking the pain killers.  It proved to be a little challenging, as I was taking them for over a year, it turned out I was a little dependant on them.  After a couple of rough days, I managed to get past the addiction to take them.  I went through a couple weeks of my body going through detox.  I am happy to report that I haven't had a pill since that last day I decided that was enough. 

I haven't been doing much of scrapbooking or much of anything, (up until this week,) because it turns out that after 1 year of being sick, it took a toll on the up keep of my house.  Now that I have most of the disaster looked after I am now able to get back to my crafting.  I can't believe how much I missed it.  I didn't know where to start when I came back down to my craft room. 

I have missed talking to everyone and I have missed sharing all of my project.  I hope everyone one is well and I hope to hear from you soon.



  1. So glad you are on the mend.
    Those pills are scary to deal with, happy you got off them.

  2. I hope your feeling better. Did they ever figure out what it was? Maybe fibro? I have that, its 24/7 pain.

    I love ur projects. I think the dresser is the coolest thing ive seen.

    Take care
