Thank you all so much for your kind comments!  They are very encouraging.  I hope my doctor will have good things to say later this week!  I'll fill you all in when I know more.

There's a new brag book exchange at GDS and we are making recipe quick pages with my recipe templates and Helen's "Mom's Diner" kit!  The last exchange that I did with Theresa using her Lovey Dovey kit and my Valentine brag book templates yielded over 90 quick pages!!!!!!!!  That's a pretty sweet deal considering the minimum you have to submit is ONE quick page!  I'm very excited to team up with Helen this time!  Here are some bonus quick pages you get for using my new recipe templates with Helen's kit:

Here's a preview of Helen's kit:


Here is a free template for you:

Hi Andrea. Hope it all goes well. I'm in a similar predicament at the moment. No fun. But with a young baby it would be even more difficult. So my prayers are definitely with you!!

I am so glad you are getting by, even if you don't feel better yet. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I love the recipe cards you created with your new kit. Thanks for the template!

Sharon Kay said...

I love both your recipe brag book pages and the kit...however...I am already committed to 6x6" pages as I have about 12 books started in that size. Oh bummer...I would have been all over this exchange if it had been in 6x6"...I've already done probably close to 200 pages in the 6x6" size so too late to change. Bummer!

If you convert your recipe brag book pages to 6x6"...I'll buy them! 8-)

Thank you for the template. I hope your results come back ok!

As you are aware as I attend my many hospital appointments, I not only have a prayer session with the Rabbi there, this is a Jewish Hospital, I also mention you and others also. (I am not Jewish) Prayer is powerful and these sessions have been extremely uplifting as I do my Chemo Infusions.

Thanks for another wonderful template that allow for two photos within its design. Love the three strips along side of the photo placement. Another winner!!!

I am watching for your next sketch challenge at GDS. HUGS!!!

Best wishes for a speedy diagnosis. I have lupus and being sick is no fun, neither are all the doctors appointments. But, with a small child too...I just don't know how you do it!! I pray you are all better, FAST! Thank you for this lovely template - I love it.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
  • All two-year-olds think the baby swing is for them!
  • When you have 6 kids, carpet is your enemy!
  • You know you have a large family when your grocery receipt is 4 feet long.
  • The toilet is clogged and my husband found a plastic easter egg in the pipe.
  • My daughter just asked me if she can put chocolate sprinkles on here melted cheese sandwich (really???)
  • I burned up another hard drive on my PC! Can I buy a bulk package of those too?
  • Well actually, my sand pile is full of socks and silverware!
  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • 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?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
  • No matter how many toys my toddler got for Christmas, I still find him in the middle of my kitchen floor sitting in my crock pot!
