Surprise!! I am back!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Are you surprised to see my post on your feed???  I bet!!  I have been away from blogland since last year, May.  That was my last post at least!  I have been reading your blogs here and there, just not regularly.

I am not sure if I am going to start posting much but hey, this is a start, right?  

This is my first coloring of 2015 and my first finished card as well.  What do you guys think?  

I guess you guys want to know what I have been up to, right? Well, it's basically my usual story: kids.  The older one is in first grade.  The girl is in kindergarten and the baby will start pre-school this Summer.  The two older ones are busy on weekends with Chinese classes and swim lessons.  My daughter will start piano lessons soon as well.  So, as you can imagine, I am running around a lot, just like most parents out there.  

My mom is hanging in there and doing great!  She is slowly accepting her illness.  She feels and thinks a lot more positively these days.  She is going through a lot and staying strong even with the constant change of new medications.

While I was away from blogland, I crocheted and made jewelry.  I am currently obsessed with Japanese graph crochet.  That just means no written instructions but with diagrams. I am working on a lacy scarf.  It's actually my fifth one.  I love the pattern!  I have been hesitant about posting my crochet items here and have been thinking about starting a blog just for my crochet projects.  I haven't come up with a name yet. I am just not too creative with names.  Any suggestions?

Have a great one, everyone!  Thank you so much for reading!!

Papertrey Ink: Thank You Card

Boy! How time flies!  It's the start of another week already! 
I didn't get to craft much these last few days.  We have two sick babies in the house.  The little one has been sick since last Thursday and the girl since Saturday.  I took the baby to the doctor on Saturday and today.  Both days his doctor couldn't figure out why he has been having fever.  Hubby is taking him to the lab for some blood work tomorrow if the fever persists.
I am a little disturbed because when my baby's doctor tried to pick up some ear wax from my baby's ears with the tweezers, his ears bleed a little.  I assume his doctor accidentally scrapped my baby's ears because he moving so much.  His doctor assured me it's okay.  I hope so!
Hopefully Kaylie's fever goes away soon.  Otherwise, I will need to take her to the doctor. 
Today's share is a thank you card.  This is one of the custom made card for a customer. I needed to make a few cards fast so I used only sentiment one this one.  Yup, no coloring!

Sentiment:  Papertrey Ink
Fabric Flowers:  Kimbee's Designs
Pearls:  Recollections
Metal corner:  eBay
Gum Drops:  Your Next Stamp (c/o)
Papers: Forgot, sorry!

Hope everyone is having a great start of the week!
