My Goodies for Sale Page is open again!!

Hi Friends,
  Just wanted to once again THANK YOU for all your purchases.   I added several new items on my Goodies for Sale  page and I also reduced prices on some of the items which have not sold.

    I accept only PayPal payments.  My apologies, but I simply do not get out to a bank and we do ALL our banking online.  Additionally, I am now shipping to the USA Only - I ship exclusively from my home and ship all orders via USPS First Class or Priority Mail.  Thanks for your understanding.

     The Cancer battle continues and is truly a challenge, as I am extremely fatigued, but still fighting hard.   I am thrilled that the MRI I had on Wednesday, was absolutely fine!   There is NO sign of the  tumor or any new issues.   My CT Scan showed some tiny new lung"nodules", but they may simply be an "after effect" of the Radiation treatments I had in November!   My Oncologist is presenting my "Case" at the "Oncology Board Team" meeting on Monday, to determine what is next, as far as treatments go.  Taking One Day at a Time and hoping for this best.  Thank you all for your prayers, well wishes, happy thoughts and all the wonderful handmade cards that continue to arrive in my mail, they quickly make a bad day, so much brighter!

      Now, more than I ever, it's so important to me to sell more of my Craft things --  I truly want them all to be in a new home where they will be loved and used.  I have two rooms full of craft goodies to go through, and it's taking time, but I'm working hard to add new things all the time.

    If there are any particular items you are looking for, please feel free to email me.   And please feel free to share this page with ALL of your craft friends.

Hello....

Hello Friends,

   Nothing too much new here, but I do have several medical appointments coming up and will be very busy this next week, plus then recovering from all the tests, 
as well as another "Opdivo" infusion.

Thanks so much again to everyone who has shopped with me.  As of this now, ALL, orders have shipped and been received.   I also want say THANK YOU for the kind emails so many of you have sent to tell me your packages have arrived and how pleased you have been with your purchases.  It really makes me feel good to know that these items will now once again be loved and used 
to create some fabulous new projects.

Hope you are all enjoying Spring!!
 
We are finally having some nice Sunny and Warm weather, 
which is such a blessing after a lot of cold and rainy days.

Happy Creating and again, thanks for your support!!

Happy Friday....and Heartfelt thanks....!!

  Wishing everyone a very Happy Friday!   Today is a lovely Spring Sunny day, the first sunny day we've had ALL week and it sure makes me feel better to feel the warmth of the sun and see some pretty blue skies.

   I'm also feeling a bit better and have now "Re-Opened" my little blog store, where you'll fine more new "Craft Goodies" on sale as well and reduced prices on some of the sets that have not yet sold.   Thank you ALL for the continued sales and support.   As of today, ALL orders have shipped and the majority have been delivered.  I thank for you all emailing me you kind thank-you notes and for your continued support!

    I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and for those of you are celebrating "Mother's Day", please enjoy time with your Mom or being pampered as a Mom.  I know for some these days are very difficult, especially for those of you who have lost your Mom.  I'm very lucky to have mine, but I did lose my Dad many years ago, far too young -- and because of that loss,  I can truly relate to how it feels when Father's Day is being celebrated and I don't have my Dad here --  it's' hard and my heart goes out to each and everyone who has lost a loved and cherished parent.

   This week I also was greatly touched by the kindness or two very special friends, from the craft world, who made this week extra special for me.   First, my thanks to Jenn Shurkus for hostessing a very sweet "Card Drive" for me.  I have received lots of gorgeous handmade cards these past two week and they all brightened my days.  They also came at a time, when I was feeling pretty lousy and a bit depressed, so the really helped to make me feel better, something is not always easy while you are fighting Cancer.    Thank you Jenn for doing this for me and for everyone to took the time to create and send me a card!   WOW!!

     A second huge shout-out to Connie Brooks,  another dear friend from the Craft Community, who sent me a huge box of goodies, as one of those amazing Random Acts of Kindness.   Her extreme generosity in putting together such a heart-warming gift, truly made me cry -- Happy Tears.   Her gift was so special and each and ever item was carefully selected and made especially for me.  It was by far, once of the most caring and loving gifts I have ever received, and all from the kindness of her heart!  Thank you again Connie, I can't truly begin to express how special you made me feel.

      Thanks to everyone who has touched my life with your kindness and love, you have all made each day a bit easier and that to is a gift that I'll forever cherish.

Lots more new sale items....

Hi all,

  Happy May!   Just wanted to once again THANK YOU for all your purchases.   I added several new items on my Goodies for Sale  page this weekend and I also reduced prices on some of the items which have not sold.

    I accept only PayPal payments.  My apologies, but I simply do not get out to a bank and we do ALL our banking online.  Additionally, I am now shipping to the USA Only - I ship exclusively from my home and ship all orders via USPS First Class or Priority Mail.    Thanks for your understanding.

    The Cancer Battle continues and I'm still determined to beat this and will continue to hope for a Cure.  I was at the hospital this morning for my bi-weekly lab work and will have my next "Opdivo" treatment tomorrow.    My CT Scan (last week), was inconclusive, so I'm now being booked for a MRI which will be done, "for me" under Anesthesia due to my extreme claustrophobia.   Hoping it will be done this week, so I can move forward. 

  Needless to say, it will be a busy week, so please bear with me, if it takes a bit longer than normal to respond to your emails.

    Thank you all so much for your continue support -- I have two rooms full of craft goodies to go through, and it's taking time!   If there are any particular items you are looking for, please feel free to email me.

A Little About Me

My Photo
Northeastern, Massachusetts, United States
Purple is my favorite color and ironically - Purple is the Awareness Ribbon color for Fibromyalgia, a chronic illness I lived with for over 15 years. In, March of 2015, I was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer which had spread to my brain. I am fighting hard to win this battle and determined to beat it. I have a amazing Oncology Team, along with the LOVE and SUPPORT of all my family and friends! I am a Mom to two grown sons, Alex is now 24 and married to Acacia, my wonderful new "Daughter", and Brian amazingly is 29 and now lives in San Diego. My boys are the greatest loves of my life. Hubby, me and our two "Pups", Skye and Zeva, two adorable Chiweenies we rescued in 2012, all live very happily in a tiny coastal town in Massachusetts. We lost our dear "Scoutie", a Purebred Dachshund, in April of 2015. I still miss him and will forever cherish his memory. I am an avid card-maker and totally love every minute I can spend in my craft room. It's become my passion, a wonderful way to relax and is my form or "therapy".
