Good news to finish a very trying year...

Hello all,

I have to share this with the world!! I am soooo happy!

A close family member was diagnosed with cancer almost a year ago.  We had to go thru chemotherapy and other treatments.  For anybody who has been struck by this horrible disease, Cancer is a battle and I am happy to say that I got some excellent news yesterday. 

While we are not cancer free, we got to a maintenance point.  Chemotherapy will be decreased to only two sessions every couple of months just and after that depending on the improvements, it will be spread out more and more. 

It might not seem like it, but believe me, it is great news. 

Please take the time to hug and kiss your loved ones.  Always make time to tell them how much you love them, because things can change in an instant.  Thankfully we have a good prognosis were we are, little by little, wining this battle, but I know there are lots of people out there that have been affected by Cancer who don't get to experience this good news…


This is a perfect ending to 2009! Really looking forward a healthy and productive 2010!

How to balance it all?

It's been a long time since the last time I posted anything on my blog... I have been so busy with work, school and just life in general.
Unfortunately, I haven't been crafting as much as I'd like but believe me I am trying to find a balance.
Does that happen to you all? I want to work, go to school, get home and be a good wife and cook dinner, I want to work out, do homework, I wan to read and I want to play with my stamps and my cricut!
In other words, I wish I want to do it all, but I can't. I just finished a very stressed semester and I had time for work, homework and food! Nothing else!
I am trying to find time to balance it all... Next semester I will be taking less classes (only 3 - compared to the 5 five I took last semester!)
I am also trying to stay organized at work and at home. My dear husband, got me a desk and some cabinets for my crafts so now I have a designed area for homework and for my crafts. I really hope to be able to do it a bit better this time around!

In between all that craziness I was able to complete some projects. One of my cousins just had a baby and for her baby shower I volunteered to create her baby shower invitations and some favors. Here is a pic of the cards I made:
I made about 80 of them but of course I didn't take a picture of them all! What do you think?? Cute huh? Well not as cute as my new niece Katie!

I also had an addition to my family! I got a pink Cricut expression! Unfortunately I haven't been able to use it as much as I'd like but I am getting there. I actually used it on Thursday to make some hug coupons that one of my brother's in law asked me for...

Here are the coupons... I made them in like 20 minutes... I think I did good... what do you say?

He gave the coupons to his parents so that they could use them whenever they feel they haven't seen one of their sons. We are all really busy somethings and we forget to slow down and just say hi, how are you! So this will be a nice reminder to slow down for a kiss and a hug!

Well, I think this is all for today! I hope you are all having a great Sunday! I am working on another post which I will hope to have ready for you all tomorrow!

Again have a great Sunday and a little late but Merry Christmas!
