Wow me MIA!!!

Well I know it's been awhile, but the Holiday season always takes a toll on me. For some this is probably the happiest season, for me it's been like the Holiday Blues. I don't know if it's the season, the weather, or more than likely is memories I would rather forget. So today I decided to brave the blogging world and give you a year in review both personal and crafty wise. As many of us scrapbookers do I started this year with a word for the year that word was GROW. Can I say that I thought at first it would be scrappy wise, but I have grown. What do I mean by this, well not in inches, but just at look at my life a little differently. It was not an easy year at times, but I was able to take action in a more positive way. I seeked council, I asked for help physically and emotionally, but most of all spiritually. I remembered that prayer always helps, I decided to ask God yes God to help me with the issues I was having with Chris. Can I say how that prayer continues to be answered in so many ways, step by step. My son Chris has an awesome MSC(Medicaid Service Coordinator) Jazmene. She has helped us in so many ways, from respite programs, to now we have a home attendant on the weekends to help with Chris. This is a blessing, the funny thing is she doesn't feel she does enough, Girl let me tell you , she has given me peace of mind. There were times when I knew I was losing it, and I would call her and cry, scream, but yet she listened and I think at times cried with me. So for this I am thankful that God put her in our path.
In prayer I also found my way back to church, and because of that change my son has been so much better, he is calmer on the weekends especially when he is at church it's like a peace comes over him.
This year has been difficult, and yet I am blessed. What you may not know is that my husband had an accident on the job, this has not been easy. It's been about 4 mos, of him being home still trying to recover from his surgery. It's a long process, but yet I'm blessed because he is still here.
Oh and did I mention somewhere that I'm going to be a Grandma, I know I didn't lol it still sounds weird, but you see how I have been blessed. I am so looking forward to May and holding my first grandchild. I will really be scrapping then!!! lol

Scrappy wise I was able to be part of the She Art Classes, I really enjoyed being creative using paint and really looking within my soul. Christy Tomlinson is an amazing teacher if you have never dabbled in her art classes you really have to just give it a try. You will be amazed at what you create. It's truly inspiring. Girl it's all about you!!!
I have not recently created but, I do have a lot of scrappy new stuff to play with. I already have a New Years Day planned with my sister in law to just create. Looking forward to digging my hands once again. With that said here are some of my favorite projects this year.
