I wanted to update you today, but I haven't been making cards these days.

I like to post a picture when I make a new post, because I'm a visual person as most artsy people are. So, here is a card I sent to a friend for her kindness back in April.

What's going on??

My face is healed and I haven't tripped again, Yea! I'm and still unpacking, but almost done. We have a box pick up scheduled for tomorrow so I am desperately trying to get as many boxes emptied and on the pile before then. My office, I mean The Card Castle is almost finished. I'll be able to show you pictures as soon as I have Internet connection at home. (I'm at Atlanta Bread again.) I am also working on my Tips for Moving Your Craft Room.

Last week's college visits were successful. At least they both know where they are going. I have one more Orientation next week. I'm working on getting the other kids registered this week. All is well. I can't wait to get caught up on all my blogging friends. I have to call the cable company today for my weekly update.

Thanks a Bunch for your prayers. I received a newsletter today from a family I know that are going back to Africa as missionaries. One of their prayer requests was for all the details related to getting settled in their new location. They say, "Small things can become emotionally big, and a distraction, so your prayers for us in these small things are essential!" Boy oh boy, can I identify with that? I can pray for them with passion, because I am right there with them. Would you please continue to pray for us as we get settled?

See you again soon.

Glad to hear your face is better and you are getting "settled" in. Tyring to get everything done and everyone settled is somewhat overwhelming. It will get better soon, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Love your card, it is bright and cheerful

Prayers are definitely sent your way. Glad to hear colleges are chosen; hope the other registrations go smoothly. Looking forward when things settle down to pictures of your new space.

It will be fun to see your new cardmaking set up!

You are doing a fab job of getting settled and getting the kids taken care of. Great job, Mom! Love the card. Can hardly wait for that sigh of relief when you sit down to your new castle.

What a sweet little card. The ribbon adds that pretty touch. The stamp almost has a french feel to it.
