Wow, What a week it has been. I am not sure how many of you know but I do not just do cards for a living. We (being my husband and I) own a Tire business here in Las Vegas for over 20 years. Well, for the first time in that 20 years business has been slow and I mean slow. Like barley any service calls. We mainly service the construction industry and it has come to a complete halt. We have had to lay off all of our employee's which was one of the toughest things we have ever had to do. That means I am back in the office and I hate it, I might add. I have gotten so used to having others there to do the work and now I am back at work. So that brings me to; What a week it has been! I was in the office all week just getting used to the daily work and getting everything adjusted so that I will be more productive while I am there and just maybe it will allow me to have some free days to do what I really love to do and that is to make cards. Sad to say I haven't even made one card all week. I do how ever need to get busy this week I have a Workshop coming up and Thursday I have a downline meeting to attend and I haven't even started. And this is the end of month for the Tire biz and I need to get statements out. I hope this coming week is a lot easier and that I get more time to do some cards.

It is Sunday, March 22, 2009. I have had a very bad week, this past week. I don't just do Cards for a living. My husband and I own a Tire business here in Las Vegas. Unfortunately we have had to lay off all of our employees and that has me so upset. You really can't imagine how that makes a person feel when you know they rely on you everyday for a job, especially with the way the economy is right now, but we had no choice. We also had one of our employee's retaliate on us which really hurt us deeply. We have always gone above and beyond for our employees and then to have one of them do something to you after you have been so wonderful to them. Well, I was steaming mad at that person, until I turned on the TV this morning. When I turned it on it was already set to channel 13 and Joel Osteen was on. I Have never watched his show before but this morning his sermon hit home to me. It was all about not keeping grudges and hating people and stuff like that. I felt that something made me turn on the TV just at that time to hear his message. I feel so much better after hearing what he had to say. Most all of my worries that I had are now gone. I have hope that we will survive this horrible economy and that, that employee that has treated us so badly will some day get his due, but it won't be from me. I feel so much more at peace and that a great burden has been lifted from my shoulders.

Well enough on that subject and on to Cards....

I have posted a picture of my up coming Monday Madness Class. This Monday, March 23, 2009 @ 7pm these are the cards for my Stamp-A-Stack.

Have a great week and remember this:

Do not let the sun go down with worries or stress on your mind, hand them over to a higher power and you will awaken in the new day with more hope!

Today is Monday, March 16, 2009 I am glad to see that my Internet is still working this morning. I had the worst day yesterday struggling with it and it finally started working correctly at about 1 am. Here are a few of the cards I made this past week, during Thursday's Card Club and some of them are from Workshops I had the past week too.

Look at me I am really getting organized. It is up and on my site before midnight on the date I always post. Here are some of the projects I am currently working on for my up coming events. I have told myself that this year I would try to keep this blog current and so far I am doing it. I am proud of myself for keeping my New Years Resolution. It is March and by this time almost half of every ones Resolutions they made for the New Year have been broken, but not mine and I am even getting better, if I do say so myself. I have a goal to have my items featured before my events are scheduled and I am on my way to that goal. So here are up coming event postings of items that I will be featuring during my up coming events. If you would like more info on my events please visit my website and sign up to attend them.
