Busy, busy.....

So it has been a whopper of a week! First off I want to show you something I forgot to show you last week that I got at the flea.... the snowflake, pointsetta and santa earrings will probably show up in my christmas banners.....



The week started off with Marissa getting the flu. She went to a sleepover on Halloween and shared an air matress with a friend who was diagnosed the next day with the swine flu.... Well, needless to say, when she came home monday eve. with a sore throat we were very worried! The fever didn't start until tuesday night but she was miserable...and her asthma also kicked up! On wednesday we went to the doctor and she said it wasn't H1 N1 but there was a chance she could still contract it on top of the flu and she needed to be closely watched...Uggghhhh! do you think I got a wink of sleep? I was worried sick about her... Fortunately it was just a bad flu that whopped her on her butt and she is doing much better now...still coughing but actually getting out today a little!

We had more excitement on wednesday....this little devil pushed out Marissa's screen while we were at the dr. and went missing for two days. We could hear her in my neighbors garage on the second day and went in to find her but couldn't...we went in 3 times and couldn't find her! Later that evening I could here her again near a vent so I had Ben hop the fence and we finally got her to come out! She may look angelic here, but don't let looks fool you! She is a rascal! Here she is in the suitcase I store my wool in...I took some out and went to the kitchen and when I came back, here she was:


I am on my way on christmas banners...some traditional, some pastels......



I just have struggled getting started on these puppies but now I am motivated...



And to end the week nicely.... Ben turned 18 yesterday! My 6'4 baby! (actually he is my oldest!)


Life sure happens quickly! Hope you are enjoying yours right now! hugs! karen....

I am up before dawn again. I love to seek out new blogs in the quite of the morning before all the hubbub starts. Today I found your wonderful blog. It sounds like you have a typical household you are trying to craft around. Been there, done that myself. I just love your Christmas banner.
