The latest 411 (Updates)

Yikes!!! I can't believe I have not blogged in about a week! So much has been going on in my life, it's almost "unreal"... I ask that you all keep me and my family in your prayers. I have had a whirlwind of events going on... Well, we thought we were pregnant, and it turns out to be something else. How did I find out the test was negative you ask? I've been to the ER twice in a weeks' time... and guess what? They don't know for sure what is causing my dizziness or the nausea and "throwing up". Good thing, it wasn't any E-coli. contamination like I originally thought. What would the world be like without me? LOL... well, from being in the military, I've always been told, "the mission doesn't stop because we lose one person"... hmmm.... (smile) But I've always thought that I was pretty important! Ha!!

Okay, here's the latest in a nutshell...

  1. Been to the ER twice

  2. I've selected the winners of the card contest I sponsored in Sweden

  3. Pablo and I managed to go to San Antonio in a one days' trip to shop for "Black Saturday" at Lackland AFB, and managed to get the last of the Christmas shopping done.

  4. Christmas decorations will go up on the house the first weekend of December, as my mother started that as a tradition...

  5. The ACOT Crop here in Texas is up and running!! (If you haven't signed up or paid, there's still time... I'm got surprises for those that sign up and pay before the 18th of Dec.; also, if you live in Texas and want to come to a crop with a bunch of wonderful ladies, please sign up for your free account on ACOT--, and you can join us for fun at By Design Scrapbook Boutique the whole weekend from 29 Feb - 1 Mar 08!!)

  6. I've got some LOs to share with you!!

  7. We took the puppies to "Woofstock '08" here at the Clear Lake park, sponsored by the Bay Area ASPCA... (my personal opinion, my Sasha should have at least won as Mrs. Woofstock!!--but it was all in good fun, I just know that I plan to come bigger and better next year!! LOL...)

  8. I'm working on a digital freebie for my blog readers... I love going to blogs and scooping up freebies, so why not offer one?
Well, on to some exciting news...

WINNERS of the Grodans Scrapgarden Card Contest (drum roll please....)

  • Alexander--fars Dag (I love how he used the punches!! And of course, my favorite color scheme of Red and Black!! And he didn't even know! LOL)

  • Annelie Rosinki--Christmas ornament (I love this shaped card and the different bling!!)

  • Linda Wiberg Stjärna--God Jul (I just love the different techniques she used)

  • Pia Kronkvist--God Jul (Of course those that know me, know how I feel about "Snowmen", but I fell in love when I saw this! Extremely elegant card, the "stitching" and even the snowman looks cute!)

  • Sanna Orrgren--God Jul (look at the paper piecing here, and all that bling!! too cute)

**Ha ha!! I bet you guys thought I didn't have the proper keycodes to get those special characters for the Swedish names!! I think it's important that I spell everyone's name the correct way, because you know how I detest it when I get called "Elsie" when my name is "Elise!!" LOL...

I want to thank all of the participants in the contest as well!! It was a really hard decision, and I was going to ask the assistance of some of my American friends that scrap at the LSS here with me, but I had a few that stuck out in my mind as a card that I would LOVE to receive in the mail! You all know how I hate getting bills in the mail, and it's just so exciting when a letter, note or card arrives!! So... without further adeau lets have a look, shall we? Here are all the entries that were submitted... Please make sure to leave a comment about the cards you see here, and let's show a little American "love" for these wonderful Swedish Scrappers!! :) You know how much we like to get "warm fuzzies" on our LOs and work that we create when we upload to the galleries!! TIA!! Elise
