First of all I would like to thank everyone who took the time to leave me a comment on my previous post. I did me the world of good knowing that you all care and wish me well. I'm happy to report I'm feeling back to my old self again, so much so that it amazes me how quickly a person can recover from surgery these days ... Of course, it does have its downsides ... I have to start doing the work around the house (which hubby took care of till now...) and the ironing (which my mom took care of) again, not exactly jumping up and down about that!!! It does however also mean I can get back to my scrapping, and boy did I miss that!!! I've discovered I'm seriously addicted, now why that should come as a surprise, I have no idea, but it did. It's hard not being able to do something you love ...
Okay, so I would like to show you some more LO's I finished with the Kreatorville Kraft November Kit. This one you've already seen:
Here are two more I haven't shared with you yet:
This gorgeous guy is my husband. This pic was taken quite a few years ago (in Crete), but though obviously he has aged he still looks pretty much the same now ... lucky me right LOL?!!! It took me some time to find the right title for this LO, because every time I looked at this pic, all i could think was "yummy" LOL, which I didn't think was the greatest title ever. But upon hearing the song "my man is a sweet man, ...", I knew I had found my title/journaling! Apart from the embroidery floss and inks, I only used kit products for this LO.
This LO is about my youngest daughter Christina doing so well with her reading. She's ahead of her age as far as her reading skills are concerned, which of course makes me proud but releaved as well. My friend's kids have a reading disability, and the amount of work spent on that problem is enormous, so I'm thankful that for my kids it all goes so easily...
The journaling reads:
"Christina is in the first grade now (10/18/2008), and with learning how to read a whole new world is opening up for her. Just a few months into the first grade, she has already obtained her AVI level 5 ... we're so proud!"
Again, apart from the spray paints and embroidery floss, all products used in this LO are from the November Kit. I tell you, this kit seems to give and give and give ... I still have plenty of material left to make additional LO's, so there's still more to come!
I already told you Christina made the Kreatorville Krafts design team as well, and here's her very first LO (8x8) with the November Kit:
The title on this LO was made by Keandra (and reads "A walk with Vita", which is our dog), and is an example of what can be bought in her etsy shop, go and check it out!
I know, it looks like something I could have made, but I swear I had absolutely nothing to say about this LO (though I tried LOL, believe me, I tried ...). She had seen me working with the spray paint and of course wanted to try this herself. She had seen me cutting out the little dear and mushrooms, so she copied that as well ... I don't mind though, it's fun to see how she takes some of my ideas and makes them her own. The thing that's most remarkable to me though is that I didn't do one thing to help, not one! She even did the stitching all on her own, even putting the thread in the eye of the needle ... This girl amazes me. She's my youngest, but you wouldn't think so when watching her...
Of course being their mom I think all of my kids have unique qualities LOL. Take Chloë for example, she turned nine on the twentieth this month, the same day I had my surgery. Because of the surgery, we had to cancel all of her birthday plans, like the traditional "birthday breakfast in bed", the choosing what to eat for dinner and the family birthday party, which had been scheduled for the day after the surgery... She didn't mind though, she didn't want to have her party without me there. She even waited with opening her presents. Normally she got to open them on the morning of her birthday, but she took them with her to the hospital, so I would be present when she opened them ... how wonderful is that for a nine-year-old! This year she didn't want a "kids-party", she wanted to go climbing with her dad, just the two of them. I'll leave you with a pic of her goofing around. Good thing I wasn't there, my heart would have stopped LOL.
Till next time,
Love xxx Peggy
