Well - news from the homefront...........

For those of you who haven't known, we've been waiting on news as to how our jobs are going to play out. My husband and I do contract management for companies and have been with our present company for 4 years traveling to different cities to live, work and remotely oversee the day to day operations. It was brought to our attention in January that the owner was interested in selling out this branch of his business. So, since January we've been in sort of a limbo as you could call it not knowing for sure how many more months we'll be here.

About an hour ago I got word that the properties we oversee were going into escrow and the prospective buyer would have 30 days to back out otherwise in 90 days the properties will be sold. Now that is good news and bad news - the good news is that we aren't sitting in limbo not knowing what is going on but the bad news is that we may not have an income after 90 days.

So, if you don't mind, keep your fingers crossed and our family in your prayers for God to lead us down the right path and place us where we are meant to be. This is a very nerve racking but also exciting time.

With this being said I am going to shut down my challenge blog for now. I have quite a few orders for things that I need to get made, purging of our household that needs to be done (I am a pack rat for those of you who don't know me that well) and I also have to figure out where we will be going and what we will be doing with our lives when the time comes...........so, I know I just started the challenge blog but I really do feel that right now is not the time for it so before it gets going too strong (yeah right) it's best I put it on hold until I know I will have my time back to dedicate to it.

Carol I held off on sending your initial prize for posting your blog until this week since you were the only one who participated. I will be putting your prizes in the mail in the morning and I thank you for playing along. I hope that I can resume the blog challenge later this year when things settle down as I was really getting hyped about all the plans and connections I had made for some exciting events!!!

Over and out ya'll..............I hope you stick around and check out my work still!!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
