It's been a long month.

 Well, things are moving along.  And right now I'm just going along for the ride.  I am pretty tired right now, but hopefully things will pick up and I will get my energy back and get to creating again. 

I think we are done with the operations, first off.  Trevor had his for getting his tubes out of his ears July 30.  I had my "female" operation August 14th,  and Carter had his knee operation Sept. 5th.  I am not suppose to pick up anything heavy until the end of September and I do fine if I get plenty of sleep and rest in the afternoon.  Well, poor Carter's knee was really hurting him  Thursday afternoon and he started running a fever so I was worried about him.  Most of the rest of the day he was pretty miserable.   I had to make sure he got his pain pills every four hours for the first 24 hours.   Yep, I was up until midnight and got up at 4:00am to make sure he got them again and also at 8:00.  And you all know about nursing someone who can't move around much.  And he is downstairs.  Well, I'm pooped.  And I am glad his brothers are home today so they can help do the running.  Yeah!

So everytime I com into my craft room to do something,  I just sit and sometimes fall asleep.  Can't get excited about much right now.  Maybe next week.

I did want to show you some more cards from Convention in July.

This one was so cool because the lady did a neat technique.  She glued aluminum foil onto the cardstock, ran it through the big shot in the chevron folder and put the card together.  I love that set, Giggle Greeting, and loved what she did with it.
And check out these cards!  I'm so excited about the new Label PopnCuts!  You need the Card base pop 'n cuts and you put the label piece inside it and get cool cards like these.  Well, one is the dress form and the moose is the label one.  So they make pop-ups!  Neat! 

And we now have the magnetic base for the big shot available, plus the NEW Envelope maker.  There are so many new things coming out now it makes your head spin!  Maybe that's part of why I'm so tired.  Hehe. 

Well, I'm off to do some pears.  A friend gave us a box and I hate to see good things go to waste, so I will be drying them.  Not enough to can, but too many to eat.  Then next week, pickles.  And apples........  Busy, Busy.

Hope this wasn't too rambly and I hope you are having a stampin' good day!
