Am I Back?

I can't decide. Do I resurrect the blog or not? Such decisions. And if I do, what form do I resurrect it in. Craft blog...life blog...combo blog. Ahh, these are the questions running through my head. I am leaning towards combo blog as craft and life each on their own are slightly boring :) So, let's see how this goes and how long before I post again :)

For kramomma

So I have at least one person who checks my blog regularly. And, well, I don't post regularly, so my friend kramomma (that's her screen name not her real name :)) has been giving me a gentle push to post something...so here goes.

I am in love with Cake Pops, which can be found here! They are fun to make, and totally delicious. I thought I would share some of my cake pop and cake ball creations from the holidays. These are not hard to make...just time consuming!




And a whole bunch of holiday candies!!

JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes 2010

It's that time of year when my family and I participate in the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. My gorgeous 9 year old niece has now been living with diabetes for 5 1/2 years. She amazes me...she is so smart and sweet and knows how to control her diabetes, use her pump, and calm me down when I freak out about a high or a low and she can tell me exactly what I need to do to get her levels back on track.

It is time...time for a CURE! I shared this poem years ago...and I will reshare it here because I pray so desperately for a cure for precious lil Sierra and all the other children who have to deal with finger pricks and shots and eating when you don't feel like it, and lows that make your body hurt, and counting every carb that goes into their body, and having their insulin pump mistaken for a cell phone.

Please go here and donate as generously as you can. Any amount, big or small is greatly appreciated.

There is some great research bringing us closer to a cure...help support that research so we can give Sierra her cure...

Really?!?!?!

I haven't blogged since November 2009...what...that is unacceptable. I need to get back to updating at least semi regularly!! Life has been super busy but I will get back to it...someday ;)

How bout a few pics of what I have been doing lately...

Celebrating birthdays!!
Seeing Lady Liberty with my niece!!
Vacation in NYC!
Seeing my fave guys in NYC at Radio City Music Hall!!

So, this week my nephew is staying with me and one of my goals during down time is to get my house cleaned up, including my craft room...I need to scrap and stamp my NYC trip!!! Hopefully I will get that accomplished so I can share!!

Gina K Release Party Fun!!

If you haven't attended a Gina K release party over at Splitcoaststampers...I would highly recommend it. They are totally fun, inspirational, and, well, hard on your bank account :)

This release, my friend Lee who is on Gina K's Senior DT was nice enough to let me play with her on one of her challenges. It was a color challenge using Cranberry Tart, Good As Gold, Black Onyx, and Ivory. I used the adorable snowman from Gina K Design Warm Winter Wishes by Carolyn King for this card. Hope you like it!!
