I have something to share!

I have a couple of things to share with my craft family.  First and most important is I have a new grandson:)))  His name is  Braxon Levi. He was born on March 26, 2013. He is so cute, I will add some pictures here.

Here's some of Kyce and Braxon together.

They are both so sweet.  I am very blessed to have them in my life.

Now for the second thing I wanted to share with you.
In September 2012 I was told that I had cancer. I shared this with only a couple of you.  I did that because I was not sure if I was going to share it at all. Since then I have had chemo, and radiation. The original cancer was pronounced gone in Dec. 2012. Ray and I were so excited because we usually go to Elkins Resort for Christmas. We were not sure if that was going to happen and it did!! We had a beautiful Christmas! 

Some of the most wonderful things that happened during this time is my radiation Dr. is a Christian so we were always on the same page, if that makes sense. I also have a couple wonderful prayer warriors in Karen at Kaleidoscopic Sparkles, and Lisa at A Mermaids Crafts. These ladies have sent me cards, and been so close to me during this amazing experience. 

I was given a pet-scan on April 19 and the report was that there was now cancer in my lungs and my colon. I was immediately on my computer to Karen, she is a true blessing from the heart of God Himself to me! She keeps me lined up to the Word of God, reminding me Jesus is the truth and His report is the only report to believe. His report is I am healed! He is Jehovah Rapha, the Lord that heals.  Anything different from that  is a lie. 

Yesterday I had a colonoscopy (which by the way is awful) and they found NO cancer! Thank you my sweet Lord, for being faithful to Your Word.

Next week I go to the Oncologist to see what our next step is for what was on the pet-scan in my lungs. 
I choose to believe God's Word and that once again He is healing me. I have known Father God all my life and my life has always been in His hands. He has never let me down, EVER! He will not now! 

As Job said yeah they kill me I will still serve the Lord! He is and will always be on the throne of Heaven and my heart. 

I am telling you all this now because once again I will probably not be posting much.  I hope it will not be long till I once again post a card however.

I also noticed there were about ten people who stopped following me:(  That made me sad. Please do not give up on me. I will try to do better in letting you know I am still around. I do go to many blogs and snoop at what you guys are doing, even if I do not comment. For example Lisa I love the kinda different things you are doing with the delusion products. But i will tell you I love the spellbinders stuff more:)) even so you could use mud and I would love what you do,LOL! 

Well I am going to go rest now after that procedure I feel like a train ran over me!

I love you all, Hugs forever, Pam

Did you think I was gone?

I bet you thought I was lost!  No but I have had a lot to deal with lately. I probably will not be posting much for a while. I am dealing with a pretty serious illness right now. But I wanted to at least give my followers a heads up. I will post as I am feeling good enough to do so. Right now I probably will only be writing or sharing baby pictures, and not  many cards. I hope you all understand.

So here are a couple of my favorite baby pictures, Kyce just turned 1 on August 25, he is walking, and doing some talking that you actually understand:)) These are from his birthday, he had his own cake!!  What a mess, but so fun!!

This is his big brother Reece. He's the one that bought him the hat!!  

We will talk again later, I miss you guys!

Hugs, Pam

Camping trip #2

We are leaving today for our second planned camping trip for this summer.  I am really looking forward to the peace of the woods. I find my Father God in every tree, star, and animal we see out there. The peacefulness allows me to reflect on all the lovely, and precious in my life.

I have been very busy and not had time to visit your blogs, I am so sorry. Please forgive me:) When I get back I have to go to the doctors, for a new problem I have been having! I hate getting old!!! But I will as soon as I can post some pictures of where we camp, and Lisa wants some pictures of Kyce, so I do have a few new ones of him to share too.  He's walking now!! He will be 1 on the 25th. A year goes by so fast.

Well for the most part I have caught you up. I will see you in a week.

I love all of you so much, Pam

Going camping!!! An Altoid tin, and of course Kyce!

I thought I would leave all my dear sweet friends a note that we are going camping this week. We will be gone 8 days. I look forward to going every year so much. This trip is the first of 3 we will be going on. This first one we are taking our granddaughter Kohlbee. Then we will be taking Reece on the next trip in August, and the last one is in September. In that one Ray and I are going alone, just him and me.

I thought I would also share another Altoids tin album with you all too. This one is still not real decorated. You guys can do a much better job then I do.  I just don't have the ability to spend long periods doing something, but I try. Well anyway, all of you have a great week, I'll check in when we get back. I love every one of you, and I will miss you loads.

Here's the tin.

I thought I would also share a picture of Kyce especially for Susan, who has adopted him. He will be walking really soon, yikes!!! I can barely keep up with him now.  He can now stand up all by himself in the middle of the room. He hasn't connected the feet moving thing yet, but not far off. This was him showing off!

Ok, I need to get some last minute stuff done, so I'll see you guys later, have a great rest of your week and week-end. I love you all.

Hugs, Pam

Thought I would share some more Reece and Myah stuff!

In my last post I shared some pictures of Reece and Myah. Their senior prom and their graduation. They are such great kids, beautiful people, and I am very proud of them both.

So I thought I would share with you the graduation cards I made them, and a bunch of 3x3 cards I made to use for whatever I need them for.

First here are the cards I made for the kids.  This first one was for Myah.

This one was for Reece. Their school colors are Red (maroon)  and silver. It doesn't show up but the hat is almost the perfect red and the tassel is silver. 

On the left side of the inside of the cards I put a pocket to give me a place to include checks for them . For some reason these were really hard for me to make. Not that the cards were hard because they were not, I don't do hard as you all know. But they were hard for me . I think it was because it brought us to a new era. My first grandchild is now grownup! Well sorta of:)) But he has maneuvered himself through his first really big challenge of life.

 I can't tell you how much I love this kid!! He is just so special. He has the sweetest heart, and he has always been so good. His little sister just turned 13 and she will give us fits I'm afraid, but Reece has been a joy since he was born. Not ever one minute of worry. That's rare for a parent to say about a child. Can you tell I love Reece?  Anyone who has ever met him loves him. He's just one of those really good people, and Myah is just as good!  I am so happy the two of them are together, they truly compliment each other.

OK well here are the 3x3 cards. These I made to have for those times when you need a little card. The little areas on the left are there to stamp thank you, or thinking of you, Hi, or anything really. Very simple cards, the envelopes were harder to do than the cards.

I hope you all have a wonderfully warm and fun week-end. Oh yeah!! Thank you all for your visits to my house (blog). I love your visits! I adore you all!!!

Hugs, Pam

My grandson's prom and graduation!

I am so proud of my oldest grandson. He is a very special kid. His heart is as big as a mountain, he is so caring and loving, for a 18 year old boy. Most kids his age are a bit rough around the edges if you know what I mean. Reece is not like that, he's just so darn sweet. Yet he is real wise. He is very careful as to who he hangs around. His girlfriend is a doll too. She is a christian as he is, so they have a very "right" relationship. I kinda believe the two of them just may be together forever! They truly love each other.

They were crowned the King and Queen of their senior prom!!  They are both so beautiful!. Here's a few pictures of their prom night. Let me introduce Reece and Myah.

Aren't they beautiful young people:)))   They are just as beautiful inside as they are outside too! Now I will show you a couple pictures from their graduation.

I'll stop bragging now, but I had to share with all of my friends. I am just so proud of them both!

Hugs, Pam

I tried something new!

I was watching Mary at Cardz TV and she was making a little photo gift out of an Altoids tin, so I tried to make one. I really wasn't feeling great so I did very little decorating, but it was fun. Totally out of my comfort zone for sure. Anyway I thought I would share it with you all. It's very simple, you guys could do much better, so try one! It makes a cute tuck in gift for any occasion. This one is for a friend to say thanks, and thinking of you.    Well here it is.

Try this sometime, all the pages fold into the tin. Then you add pictures and text on the pages, the pages are done on both sides so you get 12 photo mats or 6 photo and 6 journal pages.  Cute idea huh!

 I also want to thank everyone that follows my blog, you are all so special to me.

Hugs, Pam

I GOT RAK' ed!!!

When I got up this morning it was a usual morning. I got breakfast, let my dog out, and did a few chores, very few because I can't do to much before I am in a lot of pain. Later the mail came and when I went to get it there was a box on the porch. My first thought was, did I order something and forgot I had. No! it was a box sent to me by my lovely friend Susan at Cricut and Grasshopper!  My thought was "what has she done"?

Well she sent me a beautiful box full of wonderful gifts. There was treats that are her favorites from Minnesota, and some great crafting supplies. And a special sucker for Kyce. She also made me a beautiful card. I was so touched by her kindness. The minute my husband got home I read him her letter, and showed him my gifts. He said something that is so true. That my craft friends are far more giving and caring than even most of the people we have ever met. He is right, I have some friends here on the web in this crafting community that have become such dear friends to me. These are women I have never formally met, but I have a connection with them that is beyond locations, age, or station in life. I love these women! They give my life happiness, joy, and the connection to others that I need, to feel like I am still contributing.

Susan is one of the most special of these friends. She is always there when I need her the most. I can be really low, and go to my blog, and there is a note from her. She always brings me joy, and a sense that there is someone that cares that I am here. You know what I mean, someone that doesn't have to care. My husband, children, and grandchildren care, but Susan cares too, and she doesn't have to. 

There are others besides Susan, Lisa, Amy, Pendra, Sherrie, Karen,Norma, Sonia, so many others! All of them my treasures. Each of them bring me blessings! I believe God has brought these relationships, to bring blessings to me, in these later days of my life. He is a good God! He is a good Father!

Thank you Susan for RAK'ing me!! I so appreciate your heart, and your friendship. As it should be you brought me through a rough week, again!  Oh yeah, Ray said to say thank you for the treats since I share with him. He also said he was really happy that I had you in my life.  ME TOO!!

Much love,  Pam
