I'm Still Kicking!

I guess y'all thought I'd kicked the bucket?! If you count pain as a killer, I shudda' been dead! This mess that's going on with my hands is now in my knees and hips. I will not give up!

I have completed some digital pages and one card. To have a look check out my galleries or click on the scrolling slide show at the right. The last one I did today and is called 'lil DIVA. This is my daughter, Kim, back in 1977 and she was eight years old! Such a cutie. Her sister should have been on this LO too but she never made it to the stage which is a shame because she was just adorable. I used a bunch of Flergs' elements and layer styles on it. I really love it except for the fact that I forgot to add drop shadows prior to saving it! The card is a sympathy card I did for my previous brother-in-law and his family. His wife suddenly passed away-a great shock to us!

Speaking of Flergs, she so is awesome. As busy as she is, she takes the time to email me. Oh ---and guess what (all you digital scrappers)!? She has posted a permanent link to her Freebie Glitter Styles! Go to her blog and get them! I've now got all her papers and butterflies! WooHoo!

I'm working on some more Freebies for you also. But the key word here is "working." That's what I'm doing but they aren't anywhere near finished yet. Don't forget to check my previous posts for the Freebies I did complete! The links are still active.

I hope y'all are all planning on having a big Thanksgiving family day! I don't know what my Virginia daughter is doing but my North Carolina daughter is going to work at her church helping with serving meals! You got to admire someone who is disabled but still gives till it hurts! Afterwards she and her family are going to see their South Carolina relatives. As for me and mine, I'm not ever cooking a turkey again! Last year I cooked this big ole bird and for some reason the smell made me ill. Then when the day was over and I had to pluck the bones clean to save for later meals, I got very "physically" ill (you know what I mean). Haven't been able to eat much in the way of meat since then. I exist mostly on fruit, pasta, tomatoes, black olives, and cereal. I am making the rest of the fixins' though. Candied yams, stuffing (dressing is what I call it), brussel sprouts, cranberry sauce and the like. Got a roasted chicken for Lynn to eat-not me!

I am truly thankful that I was born and raised in the USA! with all of the cyclones, typhoons, genocide, war, and famine going on. I need to stop complaining about my health and get on with my life.

For those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, Have A Happy One! For those of you in other countries, Have A Happy Day!

So sorry about all of the pain you are in. It sounds terrible! I will be thinking of you and wishing you less pain and more joy!

I have to say that Flergs is one of my very favorite designers as well and I am pleased beyond anything to be selling along side her at Scraphead and also working on that freebie collab kit with her. Aren't her designs just amazing?
