Been A Little Busy

It's was quite a roller coaster in my life last week and I apologize for not posting much last week. I was a little busy. Started the week with a bang by losing a former client and dealing with grief issues. Then school started as well, which is always stressful simply due to the constant paperwork of new students. By the way I am very grateful for that stress because that means God has blessed me with not only employment, but employment with something I love to do.

During the week I got some very upsetting news from a dear friend who is handling her own stressful situations and it sadness me that there is nothing I can do to help her right now and I would love to be there in person with her to just give her a big hug and let her know I love her.

It seems I went 90 to nothing all week and it was after 6pm on Friday before I settled down for the day...make that the week. I spent about 5-6 hours over the weekend doing paperwork and I was still able to get in a little crafting time.

On Friday evening I got a call from a very dear friend that picked up my spirits. He knows me like a book and somehow he always seems to call out of the blue when I need that little bit of  pick me up to know that I have done things right in certain areas of my life.

Our conversations always flow so easy and comfortable and I guess after almost 20 years they should. I have been having a lot of self doubts lately and as I was telling him everything that has been going on he said  "you are salt of the earth, always have been" and of course I think he might be a bit biased. Toward the end of our conversation he told me "I tell ya what, I will pray for you and you and you can pray for me. We all need some help from time to time and if there is anything I can do you just give me a call and I'll be there". It just gave me another reminder of how lucky I am to have such fabulous, loving, caring relationships in my life!

I will be posting a two cards and a layout that I got done over the weekend. One card is pretty darn ugly but I made 6 of them in 30 minutes so don't judge! HA HA HA The other card is using the Artiste cartridge and the layout was for the Old Cricut Community challenge.
