I totally missed January!

Hi everyone....ohmigosh...I've been so busy, I totally missed blogging for the whole month of January! So let me wish you all a belated Happy New Year! I hope your year is filled with love and laughter, friends and adventures, good health and success in all your ventures!

I'd like to wish a warm welcome to all my new blog subscribers, thank you so much for joining me in my little corner of the world! I also want to thank my regular subscriber's for being so patient while I've been away, thanks for staying with me!

So, what have I been doing to keep me from blogging? Well, I've been trying to figure out my new computer, we've switched to Mac from my PC and while I totally love it, it's been a challenge trying to figure out everything! I've got lots more to learn but I really love my new iPad and computers!!

We're also getting ready to welcome our first grandchild next month....ohmigosh, we are so excited!! So I've been knitting and crocheting, shopping and getting some things made for the shower that we had for my daughter! Here's a picture of the sweet diaper cake I made...I was really happy with how it turned out!

I also made some little Mary Jane shoes and filled them with Hershey's Kisses for each guest, these little shoes are darling and so easy to make.  I found the template here.  The card stock for the shoes is from my Crafty Secrets CD that I got for Christmas.

So with all my crazy busy days, I've also been getting ready for my knee replacement surgery this Wednesday. I'm armed with crutches, a walker, a cane and many more things that I apparently glamorous!!  LOL!  I haven't even had my surgery yet and I'm already impatient to get going full steam ahead!  I'm going into stamping withdrawal, knowing I won't be able to get into my craft room for a while...and I have new toys to play with too! That's the nice thing about my Stamping supplies....they are very patient and will wait for me!

Thanks so much for stopping by to share your time with me!  Now that I've done this first blog post on my new computer, I hope to post many more things after my surgery!

Big hugs to all of you ~  I'll be back again really soon!
Hugs ~ Judy


  1. Good luck with your surgery speedy recovery. Your shower cake and booties are sure cute.

  2. I so hope your surgery went well, and that you are mending quickly! Your little Mary Janes as favors for your daughter's baby shower were adorable! I pinned them just in case...I have two grandsons, and they don't wear Mary Janes! I guess I can still hope for a grand "daughter" some day... Take good care of yourself and let us know how you are doing!
