Wow, just ran through the cards that are up and left some love - GORGEOUS work, as always! I'm so impressed with the talent in this group and just love how each of you embrace a challenge in your own way - I am learning so much!

Blessings to all this day and here's to a safe and happy New Year celebration tonight! It's tv and watching the ball drop in our household and lots and lots of food!

Hi Kelly!!
Blessings and health to all of your family also!

You were sick so you may have missed Liz's post # 2603 where she offered to host November 2013 so that leaves October 2013 for me (since I said that I could do either one).

Looks like we're all set for the coming year.

Done and posted! She actually sent me a PM as well and I replied there but still forgot to update the first page - ROFL! Thanks for the gentle nudge and reminder, Darlene!

Oh ladies - almost a few hours left to 2012! I had a blast doing my card in review (just posted to my blog) and found cards I had forgotten all about! I keep saying I'm going to do it each year and finally just did it (took 2 hours!)
My blog is a MESS!! I am not sure I will really get around to fixing it, lol, but *plan* anyway.

Stay safe tonight!

Good afternoon, faith-filled friends! Only 7-1/2 hours left of 2012 .. hard to believe!! I just finished stopping by everyone's blog and leaving some love. I'm amazed by the wonderfully talented ladies we have in this group. I learned how to resist emboss or emboss resist, lol, and I'm so inspired by the brilliantly designed inside of the cards that so many of you are able to create. Looking forward to spending some special moments with my COF friends in 2013. Wishing you all a happy and abundantly blessed year ahead!

Lightbulb Out With The Old and In With The New!

Yoiks! I see I'm up for the January challenge so I'd better put my thinking cap on, lol.

EDITED TO SAY:

Ok, I'm back. Once I put on my thinking cap there is no stopping me, lol. So here is January's challenge (Kelly, I will PM you with it as well):

2013 is here! What a great time to clear out the old to make way for the new.

* For this challenge, I would like to see you use both old stash and new stash to create your card/project.

* To add a little fun to the challenge, I'd love to see you try a new technique -- something you've never done before. You can check out google, youtube, or even the SCS forums and galleries for inspiration!

* Make sure you tell me what's new and what's old and post a link or give a little description of the technique you used.

Hello ladies!!!. I have been MIA... My husband went to a meeting in the States to find out that we are definetly moving to Washington State... Lots going on in my mind right now, dealing with the idea, the kids and their concerns, my husband and his and last me and my thoughts...not much mojo at all and no strenght o craft at all either. I guess after all this holiday is over I start to accomodate my life a little bit more. So sorry for not visiting or posting anything or not being part of this month challenge... I promise I'll be back a 100% in January. My husband will come and go for the next six months till our kids finish this school year. It is going to br hard for the family but we'll adjust as we always do.

Again forgive me for not being around this past days... I'll be back next week!!!

Have a great end of 2012 and a very blessed start!!!

Love!!!

Good morning Faith-Filled Friends and Happy 2013 to each of you!

<insert cute, animated blinkie here> since I can't seem to master it LOL

Carolina, take Jeanette's advice and remember to take care of yourself so that you can continue to take care of everyone else!! We're here for moral support any time that you need it!

Wonderful cards this round! Kudos to all of you.

Sharon: what a great theme for January!!! The wheels are starting to turn here...thinking, thinking.

Hi Jeanette!

HI Carolina! Oh my word - Washington! At least it's just right over the border a bit and not superbly far but as a military family child growing up - and Jeanette, too - moving is so much harder on the mommies than the kids. It's a blessing your kids won't be moved in the middle of the school year - we did that a few times, too. Just remember this is all part of a divine plan and we are at his request to follow those paths, even when they don't always make sense at the time. And please don't worry about your card! That's the last stressor you need right now - when you can, you can!

Carolina, Kelly is right... I moved A LOT as a child (every 3 - 6 months from the time I was 2 until I was a freshman in High School).

I really didn't mind the moving... and even now, I love to move!!!

I will tell you that as a child, the WORST moves were the ones we made after school was out in the spring. I would much rather move during the school year! Moving at the end of the year meant I went all summer without a very good way to make friends.... which meant a very boring summer. (I'm an extrovert... can you tell?)

I think it sparks a crazy love of traveling, too! Dh and I have been blessed to see so much of the world - both as kids/adults and married and I know it's our upbringing! Once you see more than once place, you want to see more!

We're off to the beach -- have a great first day of the year, everyone!

Hey Kelly,

I almost deleted you on facebook when I saw you accepted the friend request because I couldn't figure out who you were at first, lol. I'm not used to seeing you as anything other than 'MiamiKel4' lol. Luckily my hand wasn't faster than my brain and it didn't take me too long to catch on to who you were. Just thought you might like to hear that little funny tidbit of info.

Oh Sharon, I'm so glad you are my *friend!* I'm sorry I dind't see it earlier - I rarely FB lately and was glad to see you in the inbox - YAY!! Great way to start off the new year!

Good Morning, faith-filled ladies! Woke up today sore and unable to move my right shoulder - took a nasty face plant during ice skating yesterday and my age is showing today, ROFL! I skated as a kid (competed once, went NOwhere, lol, except for the love/joy of the sport!) I was on the ice 4.5 hours! And guess what? Not a single fall! Until the LAST MINUTE getting OFF the ice, can you believe it - hit a groove from someone's toe pick and boom - slid about 18' if I remember it correctly. Oh it was so embarrassing but got up quickly, dusted off the snow and well, eeek .... scooted off the ice. I'm feelin' it this morning, lol - shoulder is a mess and my knee is black and blue. Fun times

I hope today is a crafty day for you all!
xoxo

Good morning ladies!!!. Oh my... you all made me cry with your love and kind words. Thank you all so much. This is a wonderful group. I haven't been around much and today I read all at once, you made me really happy to be part of this group. I still have to organize my house in order to orginize my life. I'll be cleaning today, taking all the Christmas stuff out and trying to start the new year with lots of strength. The kids are doing fine with the idea so why to worry right?.

I hope you all had a wonderful end of the year and that this new one brings everything you need... BLESSINGS!!!. Be back later

Hello, ladies! Happy New Year! I'm back from a trip to visit with our families in Michigan over the holiday. I had to blog from my mom's kitchen table! I'm going to visit everyone's blogs today...sorry I'm so belated!

Carolina, I feel for you, honey! We were in a very similar situation just five years ago, moving from St. Louis to Indianapolis. My hubby had a new job in Indy, lived in temporary housing, came home on the weekends, and it was basically my job to get our house sold and find a new house at the same time. Yikes! We had a plan...list our house for sale in January, find a new house and sell the old one by March. And God-willing, it all worked according to plan. I can honestly say that every move (and we've had three in about eight years) came with its own blessings. It has made our children very flexible and adaptable, which made the transition from high school to college that much easier for them. But it's also true that moving is much harder on moms than children. We don't have the built in social outlets that working spouses and school aged children have. For one of our moves, MOPS and our new church really filled the gap. For this last move, I found that having a part-time job was a real blessing. Keep us updated on the progress!

Kelly...ouch! I love ice skating, too. Haven't done it in a few years, but as a girl in Michigan, it was a real winter pleasure, right up there with sledding! My boys went sledding last week, but today it is around 10 degrees outside...brrr!

Blessings on your new year, sweet friends!

Hello Ladies!

I hope that you are off to a good start for 2013! Mine could be better. I have had the tension/migraine headache for the last three days. I went to the Medicine Man (acupuncture) today. Hopefully, that will help. Zero done, feeling sick, now behind on everything.....This sure is getting old - that's for sure!

Carolina, your move will go smooth, I just know it! Kelly, congratulations on your win. Hope your ice skating incident was not recorded!

Hugs, girls!

Hello COF Friends!

Kelly - Ouch!! Hope that your shoulder and knee heals up quickly!

Carolina - one foot in front of the other, one day at a time! We're here for you and believe that you can do this!

Welcome home Mary Rose!

I am off to get some work done on my car this morning--one headlight is out and the windshield washer does not work--strange as they are both on the right front! Plus, I have stamp club this afternoon.

Tami, my sister back in Michigan was complaining about awful headaches/migraines over the holiday. It made me wonder if there was a food trigger of some sort. Good luck to you!

I missed Kelli's news! Way to go, girl!

Anyone have any interesting goals/resolutions for 2013? I'm hoping to find a decent job this year. I recently applied for a job at our library working with the children's librarian to help run the kid's programs and story times. Oooh, I would LOVE that job! I'm saying a prayer that I get an interview.

Off to Barnes and Noble to buy a calendar today!

Mary Rose, that sounds like a great job... I wish you well!

Brock (my autistic son) gives me a calendar every year for Christmas; he's in his mid-20's and has been doing this since he was 7 years old. This year is one of his best choices - ELVIS!!!
