Thursday night was my monthly crafty night out with the gals, for this crafty night we had to make 8 Xmas cards and so I wanted to do something different. Here is what I came up with :)! For this card I first cuttle bugged my green card stock with the Snowflake embossing folder, and then I used my Nestabilities to cut out the large label out of White card stock (from Carousel), a circle out of the same white card stock and a tiny gold square Nestabilities. I then took the white circle and I embossed the gold pattern onto the circle card stock, once I did that I took a sponge and inked up the white card stock using my Bravo Burgundy SU ink pad. So no that is not Burgundy card stock that I embossed on, lol, thought I would do something different.

Well, I am sure you are all anxious in finding out how our presentation to the School board went the other night :)! We were originally given 5 minutes to do our presentation, but they decided right there before we went up that they would give us 10 minutes and in the end we had 30 minutes. They kept asking questions, commending us one by one, shaking their head at the state of how things are, we kept answering questions and asking questions ourselves. Then they asked if we had something else to add, I told them I did and here is what I said:

I know I am such a bad blogger lately, but here is my reason for the past week and this week as well...I am getting ready to do one of the BIGGEST things I have ever done in my life. Not only am I a full time stay at home mom of 3 beautiful children, but now am working on a side project that involves being an advocate for all Special Needs children or children with Learning disabilities in HRM. Yep, I know a big job and yes I am crazy :p! Not to worry I am not taking this task on by myself, I have a friend named Laura Campbell who is a parent of a Autistic girl who is in grade 4 at my son's school.

The other day I had to goto the Post office, it is about 20 minutes away from our house...on the way home something caught my eye. So I looked and I saw a HUGE new playground behind a community center just up the street from our post office, well I was excited to see this here because if you want to goto a good playground you have to drive into the city. There are several play structures there for different ages, and there are also swing sets there too for older kids and little ones :).
Lol, this was too cute... myself and my dh were making French toast and eggs for brekkie on Saturday morning it is kind of a every Saturday morning thing but sometimes we switch the French toast for Pancakes. Anyways, my oldest came in to the kitchen and lay down in the middle of the kitchen on a blanket...next thing we knew the other two came in and laid down on top of him. We called it the Kitchen pile up or the E* sandwich, believe me it didn't last long at all!!

I had to make 2 cards for this months CCE card exchange, and here is one of the cards I came up with :)! I used the "Worship the Lord" stamp set by Our Daily Bread Designs, I actually won this stamp set last year on someone's blog candy and I must say that I really like this set. I have checked out the different cards on Splitcoaststampers site, which helped me with creating this card.

I am such a bad blogger lately, I think it has a lot to do with just all the illness then my knee surgery and then the complication to the surgery plus allergic reaction to meds for the said complication. Anyways, I promise I will have cards up on here for you to enjoy soon! In the meantime, a friend of mine who owns her own little gift shop in my area is having a Christmas sale at her store and has asked me to make some of my coasters to sell. Here are two of the coasters I have made so far. I think I will do at least 15 sets of coasters for her to sell :)!

Well, just when I thought life was settling down...I woke up yesterday morning to find out I had allergic reaction to the meds that I was taking to make my leg not swollen. I am now officially covered head to toe with a pink ITCHY raised up rash :(! I am taking Reactin for the rash and am hoping it will be gone when I wake up tomorrow morning but I am not holding my breath on that.

My lil dd, had her H1N1 shot Monday afternoon then on Tuesday she woke up with a high fever and a nasty headache. All her symptoms basically went away on Wed, but that night in the middle of the night she got a wet cough and a high fever of 102 and another headache. Yesterday, she complained of a headache most of the day but was still wanting to play with my Mom who has been out for the week helping me since my knee surgery. Last night at 11 p.m., my dd woke up with a high fever of 103 again and a nasty headache, could hardly breath and had a nasty cough which didn't help her breathing. I called the lovely 811 telehealth #, but then decided they'd tell me to go to the children's hospital and I took her in...sadly I wasn't ready for what was to happen next. She started to throw up about 15 minutes from our house, she threw up all over herself but luckily got a bag for her to hold.
We got to the children's hospital at about 12:00 a.m., there were 10 or so children all doing the same things my dd was doing and were throwing up all in cue it seemed. Poor lil one's :(! Anyways, the doctor finally saw us at like 2-2:30 a.m. and he told me anyone who has flu like symptoms HAS H1N1 as the seasonal flu isn't out yet. Plus, he kind of hinted that they are now thinking the H1N1 vaccinations may cause them to get it anyways...don't think that is likely...
My dd was given Tamiflu, we just pulled into our driveway about an hour after she had her first dose to only loose most of it but this time she didn't get it everywhere.
This morning we are very tired, and she isn't well still...hoping she won't get worse as we are getting snow here today about 15 cm of the white stuff...hoping my dd will have a nap soon.

Well, sorry for no craftyness on my blog for the past couple of days as I had a set back I wasn't expecting. See the other morning I took my son E* out to his bus, but my shoe wasn't fitting right so I took off my sock...E* squawked "MOMMY YOUR FOOT IS HUGE!!!!" Sure enough my foot was triple the size it normally is, same with my leg...off to emerg I went and they thought I had a clot. I quickly found out that a person with a potential "clot" ranks lower on the Emerg list than someone with "possible H1N1"...anyways in the end, I have no clot but had an infection in my leg. Was put on IV antibiotics, for 2 days and they worked really well my foot is down to it's normal size...but now I am on antibiotics in pill form.

My middle guy was out sick all last week from school, he had a flu which I am sure was H1N1 just because there are several confirmed cases in his school. There were over 94 kids out of the school last week alone, thinking that the numbers have increased because there were only 5 kids on the school bus today. He is now well, back at school but I am leary about sending him back to perhaps only get sick again!

I had to make 3 sympathy cards yesterday, and have to make 3 more :(! My pastor's father in law past away, my father in law has a company that they use for work sometimes and one of those guys passed away, my friends unborn baby passed away, my friends father passed away. Here is one of the cards I made from the other day, I replicated it 2 times...couldn't take a picture of the third one I made because my camera's battery died.
