a brief Interlude~but I am back and the more Thankful

The Tuesday before Thanksgiving started out as any other normal day of preparations...looking forward to the coming holiday, planning the menu and cleaning...then BAM I unexpectedly ended up in the emergency room.
They are still trying to sort through what the cause was but I had all the symptoms of a heart attack. Severe indigestion, radiating pain, etc. and after scaring me to death, it was determined that it was NOT a heart attack even though I had an abnormal ekg...I still think it was an acute case of indigestion but they think I should follow up with an evaluation, so OK I will, just to be sure. I don't have any predetermining factors against me, so I feel fairly confident about this...

But it did shake me up to say the least. So yes, this Thanksgiving has a new meaning for me. A time to re-evaluate and truly be thankful for the blessings that I have...

My family of course, the most precious sweet people I could ever imagine sharing my life with...
The things I use every day to function; my heart, to love; my hands,to hold; my ears, to listen and hear; my eyes,to see the beauty...

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed every minute!

November challenge...Green paper

It's been a while since I've indulged in a challenge...I needed a break from my crazy schedule and decided to have a bit of "me time." 
I played around with Mary Green's  images from her November challenge and came up with something just for fun...
It reminds me of the Summer that we just left behind so I'm calling it "Memories of Summer"...

These are the original images
 and we were supposed to

create something, anything, using the images in the collage sheet at least part of each of the 3 images.

Digital them!

I'm not sure how long digital magazines have been around, but I've just recently discovered them.
They appeal to me on so many levels...they're eco-friendly & space saving/clutter free, to name just a few.
I was sipping my morning coffee and found this amazing issue by the talented Amy Powers and friends and let me tell you~ it is as the title says! You can't help but be inspired after browsing through this gorgeous issue... well at least I was :)

Inspired digital magazine Christmas issue     I hope you enjoy!

I'm working on trying to get the final pieces of my Etsy shoppe put together so I can open up (hopefully) at the beginning of next week...or sooner!
Hope everyone is enjoying their day :) TGIF
