Selling Some Stuff

I am selling some items on ebay to try and pay off my crazy surgeries that I had to have at the beginning of the year.  I am listing a little bit of everything from crafting supplies, to collectibles, to books, etc.  The way that I have my ebay account set up I am unable to ship outside of the United States.  If any of you that are outside of the United States are interested in any of my items just let me know and I can figure up what your shipping cost would be.  I am listing new items every week.  I try and list on Saturdays.   Just click on the above link to see my items.  Thanks for looking.

I am trying to keep an updated list on Pinterest too.  Some of the items are currently not listed on ebay, but I still have them and will be relisting them.

I'm Back!!!

Hello everyone!  It seems like that it has been forever since I've been on here.  In January my appendix burst and I was in the hospital for 11 long days because of the severe infection that spread through the whole right side of my torso.  After I got out it took me quite awhile to get back to normal.  But that didn't last long either.  When the surgeon was operating on me he noticed that my gallbladder was inflamed and hardening.  This is how I found out what was causing my extreme back pain and muscle spasms in my ribs.  I had no idea that your gallbladder could cause so much pain.  I mean it was some of the worst pain that I've ever had in my life.  I cannot put into words how horrible the pain was and nothing would help.  Sometimes it would last up to 48 hours!  I couldn't sleep, sit, stand, walk....anything.  To find out it is fat in food that caused the gallbladder to cause these pains.  So, after I got out of the hospital for my appendix I started watching what I ate.  It was pretty much no fat, no caffeine, no chocolate.  It was the most bland diet that I've ever been on.  I lost 19.5 lbs. in 2 months.  I am hypothyroid and for anyone out there that has this issue you know you cannot loose weight no matter what you do.  So, a few weeks ago I had my gallbladder out.  As soon as I got out of the operating room I could tell the difference.  In the recovery room they gave me pudding and shortbread cookies!  They were amazing.  I feel so much better now.  I had no idea that my gallbladder was making me so sick.  It wasn't just the pain, I was so tired and completely exhausted too.  I wasn't able to get anything accomplished and I didn't know why.  Now I feel pretty amazing!  That is until I see the stupid hospital bills.  Those make me quite sad.

Enough about me.  Here is the card that I made for the Kraftin Kimmie Krafty Krop Challenge #6 - Colour Inspiration & #3 - Fussy Kuttin' & Challenge #153 Flowers.

I used the following items:
Lost & Found Portobello Road Paper
Kraftin Kimmie Gabrielle Rubber Stamp
Copic Markers
Michael's Paper Flowers

Martha Stewart Punch
Spellbinders Oval Die

Please Say a Prayer

I haven't been on here in quite a while.  I've had some horrible muscle spasms/charlie horses in my ribs and back that last for days at a time.  Sitting at my desk crafting seems to bring them on.  Actually doing anything does.  But I didn't get on here today to talk about me.  Please pray for my friend Bernie form Bernie's Craft closet.  She's going through a lot right now and really needs all the prayers that she can get.
