Blog Candy and an update....

So did I fall off of the face of the Earth? No. I thought about jumping... but could not find the edge. Instead, I had my gallbladder removed!!! And what do you know... I am feeling less like jumping! I am recovering nicely.
However, I have just not had the motivation to craft! Does that mean I have not had my hands on some rubber??? No.
Lucky me (and of course lucky her), but I just so happen to be extra goodie gum drop friends with Katie Cotton over at and she has TONS of rubber... just needing a friend. Well, it needed a cutting. And I have just been sitting, recovering! So, we met for lunch a few days with the kiddos and I picked up lots of fun rubber to cut.
Today she mentioned I should blog candy some of this rubber! How nice of her!

If you would like a pile of unmounted PaperMakeup rubber...

Leave a comment here! I will a winner on Friday, July 31st at 5pm.

ooooo, and of course Do not miss the August Release at!!!

Farewell Gallbladder, glad I have my 'loader'

My Gallbladder leaves me on Monday! Farewell!
My sweet 5 year old Son made this card for me... He has promised that he will be my helper, or my 'loader' like this guy. He made this card, so that I know he is my go to guy after my surgery.

Hi Friends. I promise I have not kicked the bucket.

I am struggling day to day. But getting by. My weight is down to 94lbs, I am weak and fatigued. My Doctor's for whatever reason, can not seem to get motivated to take this gallbladder out. I go in today for a surgical consult, and I am hoping I am scheduled way sooner than later for removal. I was not keen on the idea at first. But at this point, I would let a monkey operate on me.
