I blogged most of my cancer experience to bring awareneness to Breast Cancer and to let everyone know to stay strong and all things will work out. Keep your faith and your strength...you will do fine.

My hubby and I also took a vacation this summer. It was a history vacation. We went to Gettysburg, PA. My hubby is a Civil War lover and we got to see a lot of history there. We also went to Philadelphia, PA and toured the city. What an amazing history story in one city.
Between those two destinations we went to a Biblical Theatre and saw the Journey of Abraham and Sarah. What an amazing story.
After those events we went to see a dear friend in Easton,PA. While there we visited a place called Ringing Rocks. We happen to see it on the travel channel. It was different. Google the words Ringing Rocks and see what it is about.
I also was the director of our Vacation Bible School at church. That took a lot of my time also. It was fun and we averaged about 48 kids per night. For a small church...that was great.
I am back to watching my grandkids (not full time yet) while my daughter gets her new classroom ready at school. She is moving into a brand new elementary school and has a lot of unpacking to do. School starts on the 27th so I will be back to watching kids full time a few days before that.
I have tried to maintain some classes but the mojo hasn't been there. I am hoping it comes back as things calm down here. I will get some pictures uploaded soon to share.
I also got a new laptop computer and have been busy trying to transfer alot of files. My main problem is getting my address book moved. I am not using Outlook on my new computer and I can't find a way to transfer or print it out from my old computer so I am typing them in. What a job.
Anyhow...I am alive and doing well...just busy and I know that is no excuse. I need to set some priorities and take care of business.
Until next time...have a wonderful day and may God Bless You!!!!

As you can see I have put in all CAPS.....I NEED RECRUITS! I will be real honest and say that I am not the best recruiter but I am a decent upline when I get recruits. I have so much wanted to make EXECUTIVE with THE ANGEL COMPANY the last couple of years but just can't get the recruits. I get one and then one goes inactive. I do have 14 first line recruits and 1 second line. New Angels also get one of each of the following Three Stamp Sets along with all the other goodies for signing on as an Angel. ANYHOW...I am here to say that if you are thinking about selling with a direct selling stamp company that I would love to have you on my team with THE ANGEL COMPANY! To look at the application online; here is the link. Here is the link if you would like to read about the benefits of becoming an Angel. NOW for the BIG part of all of this....I need the recruits by June 20th. If I can be of any help please email me .
Now for our SPECIALS:

I knew I was a positive person and I also knew I could handle what ever was thrown at me but CANCER was one thing I was afraid of. I now know that I don't have to be afraid of it. It has to be afraid of ME.
What were the bad things that had happened within the last year? Of course the Breast Cancer, radiation, chemo, losing my dear dog, Tanner and dealing with my hubby with some major back and thyroid problems.
What were the good things that happened within the last year? I found I could conquer Cancer, I was a recipient of the blessings of many friends and family and really found out how much people do care, getting a new puppy (thanks again to many friends), finding the Lord Jesus Christ again (and for good), being asked and now serving on the American Cancer Society Board for the county I live in and also serving as Children's Church Director at Church.
The moral of this story is no matter how bad things get; the good will outweigh the bad. My advice to anyone going through a difficult time is to keep your chain up, trust in God and let your friends and family be there for you.
Now...If I could only catch up on stamping and do as much as I want to do there. There is not enough hours in the day for me. Anyone have some extra ones they could send my way? I could really use them.
For now everyone have a Great and Blessed Day. I know I am counting my blessings today!

What of the things that is really keeping me busy now is CHURCH! Yes...I have gotten back into church and love it. My hubby also goes all the time and now my son and his son. This makes me happy. I would love to have my daughter and her family in church with me also but she is married to a catholic guy and we are Baptist so it is hard to mix the two. She does go to church with him (when he goes) and they have my granddaughter in religion classes so all is not bad. I do thnk she is still Baptist at heart...LOL Anyway church does keep me busy but that is at my own doing. I am now head of Children's Church and love it. Gotta love working with those kids. The good thing is I only have to teach it once every five weeks.
Tonight is our Valentine Dinner at church and the men are fixing the food. I can't wait for this. They did take a collection and ordered Hams but they are doing the side dishes and desserts. My hubby made cole slaw (it had to be easy for him to do) and my son made a Cherry Cheesecake. Can't wait to see what they rest of the men do.
As for my stamping...I have been busy although my last class was really paper crafting more than stamping and they loved it. It was a nice change since I have the same ladies all the time.
I visited a website, Valita's Fresh Folds and she has some awesome "shapely" cards. You need to check her out. That is where my ideas came from but I changed the sizes a little bit to fit what I like to do. This is one of the cards I did. It is the cupcake card. You can't see it clearly in the picture but the top layer of "icing" is glittered. I hope you can go visit and make some of your own cards. It was a nice change. I did use the Happy Birthday stamp from the Stamp Set "Ordinary Greetings" out of The Angel Company Catalog. That set has some nice sayings and is well worth the money. You can check it out here.
I'm off to get some stuff done before my two little grandsons wake up. Have a great and blessed day!!!!
