I started my craft room purge at the end of October. I needed to purge the craft room, the craft room closet, and the 21 boxes piled outside of my craft room. I finished the craft room portion the morning we left for Florida to visit my grandmother (early November). I planned to start on the closet when I returned, but then my dad did not do well on his 6-month nuclear stress test. He went in for a catheterization, and they determined he needed a triple bypass. I packed my bags and went to my parent's house (the Thursday before Thanksgiving), the night before his surgery. I stayed with him until the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. The surgery went very well! He ended up needing a quadruple bypass. His recovery is slower than expected because he did not tolerate the pain meds well, so we post-poned Thanksgiving. During the few days I was home prior to the surgery, I worked feverishly on my blog posts that I knew would need to go up while I was gone. I had 6 auto-posts!
With all of this going on I know I missed a lot of posts by you, my blog friends. I am slowly trying to get around to visit each of you. AND I still really want to get my craft room back in order. I hope to start on that again next week. My dad won't be able to do any heavy lifting this holiday season, so dh & I are going to my parent's house this weekend to help put up the Christmas tree and decorate the house.
Today is my dh's birthday! I went in my card calendar to get out his card this morning…I never made one. I thought I had…Artful Delight to the rescue! I pulled out my July scrapbook kit that was full of yummy My Mind's Eye Lime Twist papers, die cuts, stickers, and this hand-made embellishment (felt star with button.) Those kits are jam packed with crafty goodness :)
