Heart New ... again!

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa (webzmacs) and I recently relocated to central Florida from Kansas City. I haven't crafted in a long, long time and had really lost the zest for it until something remarkable happened ... and it happened here at SCS!

My cousin, Wendy has been sick and our family has been trying to send her things to keep her spirits up. Then I remembered that when I was in the hospital several years ago, my friend, Alicia hosted a card flood for me. I hesitated to ask for help here because I had been so inactive. I did it anyway and here are things I realized ...

1. SCS is one of the most giving group of crafters I know.
2. I have been missing out on building friendship with everyone here.
3. My blog missed me!
4. I'm back and never leaving again!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the card flood. My cousin has received more than 50 cards and she says she feels so blessed. That makes two of us and I'm happy to be back!!!

Thank you all!

Melissa

PS ... I actually made 2 Valentine's Day cards. Now I can't wait to get my craft room organized so I can really go crazy!

Hello Melissa, welcome back to SCS!
Hope your cousin Wendy is doing well.

As for the crafting, sometimes you just got to have a break from it all but once a crafter always a crafter. So get your craft room organized and lets get crafting.
I'm looking forward to seeing some of your cards here on SCS.
Have fun.

Hi Melissa! So happy to have you back! What a sweet story. I'm so glad to hear that your cousin's spirits were lifted! Look forward to chatting with you and seeing your work!

PS - If I wait until I'm organized I'll never stamp!

Hugs!

Aloha & welcome back!!! I'm fairly new myself but with the help from Ms Stephanie who took me under her wing my 1st moments here taught me enough to fly here but it is the so wiliness of all the wonderful ladies here that I'm inspired daily and always feel I have somewhere & someone always in my life to get me through the bad times as well as the good.Hope your cousin is doing good.
