Oh My..

 Its been a while since I've updated my blog... sorry about that... So much has been going on in family life that when I am online I am creating tags and kits and that's it. I am going to try and keep up with things better this year.. Even though it hasnt been a great start. 

    I have to take better care of me. I ended up in the hospital - I was so so sick and was told I had Diabetic ketoacidosis and it can be fatal.. So I will be honest- it scared the hell out of me. Been discharged from hospital a few days now and I just feel so exhausted. 

    Anywho lets get to what this blog is all about: Paint Shop Pro Creations by me :
