Has it really been 3 years since I've posted anything?  My life has changed so very much in the last 3 1//2 years.  My son and his significant other now live with me, at my request.  My husband has not been well and is suffering from a brain injury he received in Vietnam in the 60's.  He was blown up in a tank, more than once, and has a brain injury that did not show up until just the last 10 years.  That brain injury has caused dementia and he is no longer able to care for himself, nor am I able to care for him, as he needs around the clock care with total assistance.  Now you know why I haven't been around much.  I've spent much of my time going back and forth between the VA home and home. With Covid-19 so prevalent I can no longer go for outside visits and we are back to visiting between windows and doors and not very often.

I'm really wanting to get back into card making and crafting again.  I miss all my crafting friends and creating fun projects.  Maybe I'll even try out for a design team again just to keep me motivated.  I've got to check out what blogs are still active since I've been gone so long and what design blogs are having challenges.

I hope you'll bear with me as I  strive to get back into your world.

With much love & hugs,
Granny Carol
