learning something new... crocheting!

So I'm so excited!!! I just learned something new this week!!!
My super awesome coworker Michele taught me how to CROCHET!!! I've always wanted to learn since my orthopedic patients taught me how to knit a few years back... BUT I really wanted to learn how to crochet!
I seriously watched all the youtube videos about learning how to crochet, ... and even bought those crocheting hooks and yarn.... but I never caught on... until this week! (I guess I'm one of those hands on learners.... I need to see and feel in order to learn LOL)
I'm so HAPPY! =) anywho here's a photo of my first project!

lawn fawn inspiration

Hey guys...
how's your Monday everyone ?
mine was good thank God, & I hope yours went well...
But my heart and prayers are going out to those who were affected in Boston at the Boston Marathon... I was at work all day and I didn't know what happened until at night when I came home from the hospital... ='( I can't believe that someone / some people could hurt others for no reason what so ever... it's really terrifying... it's so scary out there now... I don't know where people can go that they will actually feel safe... =(

anyways... I'm entering Lawnscaping challenge this week and the rule is being inspired.
My inspiration is Kelly Marie's newest Lawn Fawn video with her newest critter stamp set. I don't own the Critters on the Savanna stamp set ...
So I kinda improvised heheheh I hope you all like it.

here's my card

I'm still sick and still feeling kinda bummed after this past week... I wonder if my immune system had enough and just gave up after trying to stay strong for so long...
thank you everyone for making me feel better after my last post... I really appreciate how everyone told me about their own experiences about their "toxic" friends...  it made me feel like I wasn't alone. =)

making cards makes me feel better...

hi guys
So I've had a semi-terrible week... I didn't have a great weekend at a friend's Jack and Jill stag; and caught a cold from a co-worker... my week started with a sore throat and I'm constantly coughing and it keeps triggering my asthma.

anyways, I had spoken to some of my colleagues about a long time friend and how all of us are constantly changing as we grow older, but have you ever had that moment in your life where you realized that maybe a friend has become "toxic"?
I'm not quite sure how I am feeling... a mixture of sadness, surprise and anger... but have you had a moment in your life where you realize maybe it's time to move on or break away from a friend ???
I feel sorrow for all those years we've known each other, but I always feel like I'm being taken advantaged of...

anywho... here's my entry for paper smooches... and simon says stamps - flowers
its not my best work because I feel like I've been dragged by wild horses...

here's my card - I used my action wobbles again =)
