Happy Sunday :)

     Howdy everyone! I just wanted to give you all a quick little update and an apology for not posting in a while. My family and I have had quite an adventurous couple months. Due to my health issues I am limited on my wifely duties, which a lot of people say I am lucky because I get out of doing the laundry, dishes, and cleaning. So that means my husband is way more than just the bread winner of the household... he is in every way the man of the house. He is the most amazing man and husband a woman could ever ask for. He cooks, cleans, does laundry, does all the major physical activities with our kids like go to the gym, and he still manages to do the "manly" things of the house like trash, lawn care, fixing broken things etc. Like I said, he is AMAZING and because of so many more reasons beyond that, he is my hero!
     So just imagine how much our world came to a complete stop when he had a freak accident. If I told you the story of what happened it would gross you out but it would make you laugh at the same time. Only my crazy family can take a tragedy and turn it into a comedic event. I will save you the horrific details and just say that because of the accident I have had to step up big time. I have had to really push myself to do things that my body and health otherwise tell me I can't do. To say it has been an extreme challenge not only for me but for my family is an understatement.
     My husband has a long road of recovery yet to go but things so far are going good. To him this accident is a walk in the park compared to when he had cancer in his 20's. To be honest even though this was a terrible accident it could have been much worse, so we truly feel God was watching over him that day and is still is because everything has gone right despite all that could have gone wrong.
     So to sum all this up in a nut shell, because I have had to be more physically active it has caused me to also be in a lot more pain which is why I haven't been able to be my crafty-self lately. Now that things are beginning to calm down a bit and my husband is starting to do a little more on his own it won't be long before I am back to my crafty-time. I have a ton of "Thank You" cards I need to make so I will be sharing those with you once I get them made, plus I will be working on my Thanksgiving and Christmas cards too. Something else I am wanting to do is to blog on a more regular basis so after the holidays my 2015 goal is to blog regularly and I would really love your opinion on which you would prefer... Would you prefer me to blog a couple times a month showcasing several projects at once or would you prefer me to blog once a week showcasing 1 project (occasionally 2) every week? Would you prefer I mix up the blog posts by one time showcasing a project, the next a technique, and then other show products? Let me know what you think either by leaving a comment or sending me a message. I really would love to make it onto the Design Team of my favorite crafting products so I greatly appreciate all your support and feedback because you help me to continually grow :) I wish you all a wonderful week and I will 'blog at ya' soon ;)
