Busy, Busy, Busy!

Hello Everyone,
I have been so busy lately. I have been making handmade paper, collage paper, sewing and still trying to do my mom things. I have sold a few things and I have had quite a few people look at my Etsy site. I get so excited everytime somebody marks my shop as a favorite or when I see I sold something. I hope the people who bought my items enjoy them. I love crafting!!
Everyone in our house picked up some type of stomache virus and we have been taking turns for the last 3 weeks passing it on. I hope we are about done!! I want so bad to open up the windows and air the house out, but the weather isn't going to permit this. I can't wait for spring so I can just open up the house and do a really good cleaning.
My family also went and got family pics taken a couple of weeks ago. I finally got a nice picture of all 8 of my kids, one of my 6 grandkids and then a really nice picture of everyone. My daughter-in-law, Jenn, works at Sears and set the whole thing up. Thanks again Jenn!!
Back to my crafts. I have joined Indiepublic and enjoy looking at other peoples crafts and feeling like I am a part of a community. I also joined a Valentine's Swap on I have never done a swap before and am a little nervous. I really like what I made for the other person though. I really hope he likes it too. I also got an email today about "One World-One Heart". I want to sign up for it too. I will have the info up in a little bit or tomorrow regarding what OWOH is.
Anyway, I am trying really hard to change my attitude towards life. I hate being depressed and I'm sure you all hate listening to it, but I'm glad you do!
Have a terrific night!

Thanks for listening!
