Sunday Scrappin'

Sunday Scrappin' #53 November 16, 2008

My ta-da's this week are not scrapbook related. I finished a plastic canvas cover for a tissue box and my M & M curtains for my craft room. No paper or digital scrapbook pages this week at all. If you frequent my blog, you will know I have had a Worst Week this past week. My mom was diagonosed with colon cancer, my mother in law is on her deathbed, my father-in-law is in the hospital and I have had someone very close to me lie. I have also had some good things happen this week - I got a job (not that I wanted a job but if the mortgage payment is to be made I better be working) and both my son and I registered for college (not at the same one). Here's hoping for a better week.


I love that there is a different animal pattern on all four side of the tissue box.

And my M & M curtains are just a valance but I am so happy with it.


I am not making any promised for to-do's this week. With working full time for the first time in a year I don't think I will have too much excess energy to craft. I didn't get last week's challenge done to make something Thanksgiving but maybe I'll make some placecards for Thanksgiving dinner.
Day 16 of NaBloPoMo.

Oh hon, I'm SO SORRY to hear about all the dreadful things that have happened this week. It's good though, that you're able to also point out the good and still take some time out to make something beautiful and be creative. I pray that things improve for you this week and that you continue to stay strong.

Well, I am first and foremost so sorry for all your stressful things going on. I will keep your mom in my prayers. So many family members sick is so hard, and on top of that a new job. Wow. Take one day at a time. I will be thinking about you.
