Well so much for being able to keep on track with my New Years Resolutions!! :( Shortly after my last post I fell and shattered my ankle. OUCH! I went out to shovel some snow about 2 weeks ago and slipped on the ice-as I was trying to catch my balance I felt my ankle crack, crack, and crunch and down I went. It hurt so bad. Any ways I have been out of work now for 2 weeks and I can’t put any weight whatsoever on that ankle. They had to put in 10 screws and 1 plate to fix it. There is a bone that goes down the inside of your ankle, and one down the outside of your ankle and than the one in the back of the ankle to support the heel. Well I broke all three—not just one or two but all three. I go to the Doctor on Weds. and than I will know more about what I can and can’t do—and hopefully get back to work soon. It’s very hard for me to get around like this, and I can’t imagine how I would get around at work the way things are now. But I am supposed to get a walking cast, I’m just not sure when yet, and when I get that I should be good to go. I thought well since I am laid up here I can get some scrapping done—nope—after sitting for a little bit my ankle would just throb with pain, and the only way to keep it comfortable was to lay in bed with it elevated. Even tho I sat in the recliner keeping it elevated, that didn’t work well. But now it’s not so bad and I can sit in the recliner with my lappy and do things, BUT now my internet is acting up and it’s like having dial up instead fast internet and I can’t load any pages or download anything without taking hours to do so. Nothing worse than being laid up and not being able to do what I want on the internet~:(

MScraps had there 1st year birthday bash this weekend and it is still going on today. Lots of games and challenges and a huge blog train too. I have tried participating all weekend and my internet is not cooperating, so hopefully all of you can still take advantage of all the fun over there. Congrats MScraps on your first year in business and wishing you many more. :)

Here are a couple of pictures to show you what they did to repair my ankle.

This last picture shows you the three bones that go to the ankle and I broke all of them. Well I just wanted to pop in to let you know what happened and why I haven’t posted in three weeks.

I will be back with some exciting news and a freebie soon. :)

Till next time have fun and be safe.

Happy New Year Everyone!!

One of my New Years Resolutions is to do better at writing my blog. I want to learn and do more things digitally this year and I need to regularly post on my blog in order to develope a relationship with all who follow and will start to follow me on my blog. I have found that by not being here regularly I don’t have a good repore (sp?) with any of my followers and I have lost many of you that started to follow me in the beginning. So with a New Year I am going to make a new start. I am going to learn lots of new things this year and I will have lots to share with you as well. I love to dabble in the designing end, although at this point I do not have the talent or the time to become a full time designer—but as I learn new things and make new things I would love to offer them as freebies. I also plan to do more challenges this year and hopefully be able to offer things such as QP’s and clusters for you. I currently only CT for one person, one extremely talented designer-Kimbroedlet designs. I was also on another CT team last year, a very dear and close to my heart friend, Jazzy from Wordstodelite. But we all lost dear Jazzy suddenly and without any warning on December 14th, just 3 days after her birthday. She was one of the first people I met in my digi scrapping adventures, and we developed a very close friendship and talked on the phone regularly—I will miss her so very much, and I will never forget her gentle, caring ways. She was such an inspiration to me and so many others. She was always there to praise my work and encourage me in everything I did. She was the reason I kept working and learning new things in digital scrapping, and the reason I will continue to learn and share with everyone that I can.
So to kick things off for this year I have made a paper pack for the DSO’s Jan 2011 color challenge. I really hope that you will find a use for these papers.
You can download it **Link Expired** or click on the preview to download.
Well that is all for today. You are probably thinking, boy is she long winded! LOL! If you got this far I want to thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings and I look forward to seeing you again.
Till next time take care and be safe.
