I Lost Matt

Today, 3 of my Christmas cards returned. One is an important person in my life. I was afraid I lost track of him.

I dated Matt in college and we've remained friends since. We used to talk once a year at Christmas time. Last year and this year I hadn't heard from him. And a few years ago when I talked with him, he told me that he had the form of skin cancer that is extremely dangerous (not the topical one).

So, I immediately became very worried. I called his house...phone disconnected.

I called his office. And Phew! He's away traveling, but there was a message that he would return on Monday.

Okay, he's alright. Just needed to know.

Maybe he found a woman he loved enough to marry. And moved into a grand house and now has a little pumpkin or two. I hope so. He's a good egg.

I am finding that with all the Social Networking sites (Facebook, MySpace, etc.) it's easier to keep up with people.
Although, there are a few people I haven't been able to track down from college and high school.

I LOVE your Silly Valentine's Day card. Oh goodness. Very clever to "hide" their special parts.

I thought I was the only one who made a huge mess while I "play". My friend Amy seems to always have her crap in order when she is making cards or being crafty. I am glad to know there are other free spirited crafters out there! Yea for making messes! (and then, of course, cleaning them up.. Sooner than later. Or later than sooner?).

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do w
