What have I been doing lately?

Well I am finally at a place where I can start sharing all of my latest creations...I know it has been so long since I have posted anything crafty, what like a month or more???? I just can't seem to find the extra time to blog on a daily basis, too many other deadlines, activities, household chores, and work. So I just squeeze one in every week or so, that is as good as it is going to get for now! Of course I just got news that I will be having surgery on my hand i
n a month or so, then I will have a bit of free time on my hands so I could post on a daily basis, but I will probably have limited access because my hand will be healing so no typing with that hand, one handed typing...boy I will be slow! I can't wait for the surgery because I have had terrible pain in my hand for a long time, several years and I noticed a couple of weeks ago there
was a lump or hard spot on the palm of my left hand(i am left handed) anyway the pain has progressively gotten worse until now it goes numb and I drop things that are in my hand, tried
pain pills, anti-inflammatory meds, hot pack, cold relieve. So I went to an ortho hand specialist and I have a tumor/cyst that needs to be removed. All hopes is that it will come back normal and will take about 3 weeks to heal after surgery. This means I will not be working at the hair salon for a while (i am so sad, I love my job), nor will I be crafting for at least the first 2 weeks and then therapy for a week after and possibly several more weeks, depending on how well I am healing. I will end up with a scar on the palm of my hand about 2 inches in length, that is okay as long as the pain is gone. I am so sick of dealing with it. Anyway didn't mean to go off on a tangent, but this is my life something always happening!
Here are a few of my latest creations, finally! The first 2 are shower gifts I have made for a baby shower I am hosting next weekend...I love the little banner and the cupcake picks, they are going to look so cute once I make the cupcakes!
The next 2 layouts are 6x12 Teresa Collins Family matters collection. This was the first time I have ever done this size scrapbook page and I totally loved it! It was neat to do a different size and add some elements to the page that require opening things up. I am so in love with Teresa Collins products, her colors just go with everything, they are so verstaile and easy to use...I have more stuff coming soon to show that I made from her line.

So that is all for now, but no worries I will be back with lots to share!
