Mystery Swap #12

This month I was the "HOSTESS" which meant I got to pick the image and got to stamp 200+ images to send out 6 images to over 18 people. I really wasn't that hard, but at first I was like, "What did I get myself into?" The image I picked was the little pig with the saying "Are you cured yet?" from the retired stamp set, Farm Fever from SU! (available from me only for $15)

On the inside I made a little tissue box. I chose this image so that I would have lots of "GET WELL" cards for the Touch a heart minisrty that I am in. We write cards to people who are sick, having surgery, etc...

Food in the Forest Swap

By Golly I think I've got it! I have been stamping now for over 20+ years and still never got the whole layering technique down. I have been pretty busy in the craft room lately and I think the more I create the better I get. This was my latest creation and I really liked the way that it turned out. It is a retired SU! set- under the stars (for sale from me $15.)
I created this for a swap that I am on SCS called Food in the Forest. It is a lively bunch of chatty girls. Lots of fun, creativeness, and chatter!

Magdeleno Family Reunion IE style

So some of us didn't get to go to the HUGE family reunion in Dos Palos- which only happens every three years.I personally was throwing a fit- so mad- sad- all of it! I wanted my kids to go so bad and see all of their family. Family is so inportant to me and unfortunately not so much to my parents. They are not close to their family at all, so we are not either. But on my husbands side- they are extremely close. My husband, Steven, threw his back out on Tuesday August 20th while at school, wshing his hands. he finished the week out at school and we think that made it worse. By that Friday he could not move or walk. He went to the chiropractor, ried oils, heat and ice, nothing was helping. So we went to the doctor and got some steriods and muscle relaxers. Today almost 3 weeks laster he is 90% better. PRAISE GOD! But in the meantime, we are looking at 2 paychecks this month instead of 4. So we were not able to go to the family reunion. Steven's brother had a heart attack a few weeks ago and is not in the best health so he was also not able to go. Frankie, our nephew had to work so he stayed behind. I called my SIL Lola and said get everyone together we are going to wear our shirst and have a mini-reunion. So we did! As a freind put it, we made lemonade out of lemons.
