Personal Support Call ( Michael's Surgery)

Hello and thank you for visiting today!

If you have been following my blog you would have come to know a little about my amazing son Michael. 

This post is to request help from all card makers even if you are here for the first time.

Michael is an amazing strong boy who deals with life by the moment and he touches each and every soul he encounters with his bright smile, his inquisitive nature and the love he shares so freely. Michael sees our world differently than we do as he was diagnosed with Autism at the age of three. I am preparing Michael for the upcoming experience the best I know how.

Michael is due to have surgery on both feet this fall. He's had problems with his hips and feet since birth as we were told he would never walk. It was difficult to put a diaper on Michael when he was an infant because his hips wouldn't spread wide enough.

 When Michael was about 6 months I pushed his hips apart a little too much which made Michael laugh! I did this everytime I changed …

Hello!!! Thank you for visiting my blog today!  For those of you who have been following and have seen the entries of Terrifically Talented Theresa , here is the beautiful face behind the creativity...
Theresa is the daughter of the friend that is not going to kill me...


 On Friday I tested the limits of our friendship in trying to ensure my friend Kelly's 40th birthday was fabulous. I tried to embarrass the face off her by trying to have it announced on any bill board on Main Street but failed miserably... that might have saved my friendship, hehe! So I had Kelly and her family come for a BBQ and cake which I decorated with my cricut and my new found quilling skills...  I used the Beaver from the  "Birthday Bash" cartridge. 
  I treated with her with a homemade card along with a personalized party hat and inside joke gag gift.

I am entering this hat into the Decorate to Celebrate challenge!!!   Come play along!!!!  Go Here 
Here is Micha…
