Well, I've had so many comments and an email asking about my husband and offering concern and I appreciate it so much. He's doing so much better today! Here is the second part of the quick page for you though:

Papers by Maria and
template by me.
Download here.

Thanks so much to Maria for sending these beautiful quick pages to me and giving me permission to give them to all of you! Make sure you visit her blog and tell her thank you.

As for the mine rescue, it's so devastating. They had another "seismic" event tonight as the rescue was going on and 7 rescue workers were seriously injured and two have died so far. You can read about it here. Certainly, my troubles are nothing compared to what these miners and their families are going through.

Thanks so much for these 2 quick pages. I like them very much and it is always wonderful to get 2 pagers.

Maria said...

That's so sad about the miners and rescuers!! How awful! Makes you count your blessings and give your little ones an extra tight hug.

Wow, what a wonderful page this is! Thank you so much for sharing it with me.
All we can do is pray for the miners and their families.

These are definitely beautiful QPs from your 2-page templates. Sorry, I had to miss a few days but it couldn't be helped because my Oncology was a little bit rough this entire week. I am feeling much better after today's session that ends the 5 days. So I am combining my remarks. I linked to the site and see where someone else had listed your name above mine so maybe you are more than one now and I of course added mine to the list. The colors are fabulous and the designs of your templates speak for themselves. Okay Everyone, let get Andrea's name moving on that list because she has been exceptionally good to us. Visit some of the blogs where the designer is also in a store. How often do you get a free template and in both sizes to download? I saw one who gave a letter-size template 3 months ago, and every template design since then that she has listed is linked to her shop for sale. So remember Andrea, although I might not make it here as often as I use to, but I do try to visit you at least 3 times or more each week, I am a steadfast supporter. I am so glad you made the list, and thanks to the wonderful person who initially placed your name. Leavin LUV!

My Little Ironies

  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
