Sorry It's Been So Long!

Our Grandchildren
  We are missing our grandchildren so much. This is the last photo we have of them at our house. We have been social distancing for the last 4 weeks. We have Face timed with them and our son and daughter-in-law.
  I have also been recovering from total hip replacement on March 10th. Doing really well at this point. Walking with a cane but transitioning without now. It has been a long haul with so much pain before the surgery and getting through this recovery time.
  Thank goodness I have my papercrafting to work on when I feel up to it. Lately I have been doing more than a few weeks ago.
Lenny' s Birthday Card

  I have been working on my brother-in-law's birthday card for this month. I really enjoyed making a tropical theme cause I know that is where Lenny would like to be right now instead of inside all the time. I had these palm trees in my stash and I used some dies for the water and the hammock. The hammock is from Elizabeth Crafts Designs.
    I really loved making the tropical shirt which I had made before but had not made lately. The directions are on Pinterest . It was easy to find.
   We have alot of events in our family for April. Not to mention that Easter is a biggie. I worked on Easter baskets for our grandchildren before my surgery which helped alot .

Before my surgery I bought an Explore Air 2. I absolutely love it
I made this card in the box for Easter. It was from Dreaming Tree.
This company is awesome. Every project has a video for you to follow so you cannot make a mistake. I learn something everyday that I work on something.
Sometimes I make a mistake but I learn from that too.
Another Project

Love this card.

I would recommend this company to anyone looking for 3D projects. They have cards and print and cut images too.
  I am working on vintage woman cards that are really wicked cute.

Evy's Easter card

This is a card I made using my dies. I cased this card from Pinterest.  I changed it a little with the 2 little bunnies on the sign. I think Evy will really like these bunnies. I have a bunny collection so I am over the moon with this card.
  I am working on Izzy's card now to go with their Easter baskets.
  I think we will put their Easter baskets on their porch and ring the bell but stand way back or get in our car and watch them see what is in their baskets.
  So hard to do. I want to give them all a big hug. I have been praying for them and the rest of my family this whole time we have been "staying at home".

Album in a box
We were planning on doing a spring craft fair in April but it was cancelled due to this virus. So we packed everything away for next April. It was to be at USM in Gorham to support their athletic program.
  I made this Album in a Box for the fair. I really had fun doing this one. I used paper from Stamperia.
  Well, I have to go do my exercises now to help my hip to get stronger. Will try and post more often now that I am doing so much better.
 Stay safe and pray this end soon.

Getting Ready!!

    I have been getting ready for an upcoming craft fair at USM on April 22nd. My sisters and I are excited about doing a spring fair. We di...
