Graduation!!!!

Saturday will be a big day for us.  My baby girl (she’s 23) will be graduating from college!  I can’t believe where the time’s gone.  Just 5 minutes ago she was 6 and wanting to tag along with me everywhere.  Now, she is out on her own.  Brings a tear to a mother’s eye, happy and sad.  Happy that she has completed her degree and sad that she is no longer that little girl that tags along with her mama.

Well, with anything that comes around such as this–I made a card.  Don’t worry she won’t see it, since I haven’t said anything to her about this blog.  So I’m safe to show it.  I’m really happy with how it came out.   For my cardmaking, crafty peeps, here is the breakdown of the materials I used:

Sue Wilson Noble Dies Classic Adorned Rectangles
Cut the interior decorative with the oval cut out

Also, cut interior rectangle piece from this set along with the second to the largest rectangle piece in the

Sue Wilson Noble Dies – Ornate Pierced Rectangles – also use the decorative rectangle piece with the previous rectangle cut. Cut 1 without the decorative cut and then cut one with.

Sue Wilson Scandinavian Collection cut 4 corner pieces

Sue Wilson – Double pierced Rectangles – Cut largest die

House Mouse Graduate Stamp

Recollections Stamps

Final dimensions of the card are 7 ½ “ x 8 ½”

I had a blast working on this card and I hope she likes it.

Ok, on to more pressing things to do today. Like housework………..UGH!

Maybe I can get one of the fur babies to do it for me? Wishful thinking? What about hubby?   More wishful thinking? Who knows, we shall see.

Here’s to putting a little happy crazy fun in your day!

 

Kim

Welcome!

Hi, welcome to my new blog, my Corner of Crazy. Well, that is my world.   So, why not share it.

I’m Kim, by the way. I am married with 2 grown kids and 1 grand daughter, who I believe is the best. And, a house full of fur babies who keep us laughing and busy.

My life is full of challenges and want to share how I cope and hope get feedback on how others cope with the same challenges.

I have Multiple Sclerosis (diagnosed 2006). Currently, I am doing ok, but have my ups and downs. I manage it with medications and humor. If I lose my humor, then I really have a problem.

I am also the caregiver for my husband with PTSD.   Believe me, it is an experience trying to get someone twice your size to take their medications when they believe they are just fine. Fortunately, we haven’t had this issue in a long time, but it has happened and let me tell you I didn’t ask for that “E” ticket ride! But, we got through that rocky patch and he is on a smooth patch right now (fingers crossed).

You will find me sharing pictures of my quilting and paper crafts. These hobbies keep me sane and I find some peace while working with them.

This is a short and sweet introduction. With each post you will get a larger peek into my crazy world.

This is one of the fur babies, Lucy.
