Happy New Year! 2014
December was quite eventful for me.
On my birthday, December 5th, during dinner, I started feeling weird...long story short, went to the emergency room, nine hours later admitted and spent the next 12 days there. I had the surgery I needed for the parathyroid growth (a nickle size tumor on the gland) removed.
I'm home now, recovering and waiting to feel good again now that the problem has been removed from my body!
Hoping to have my creative side return and get back to living!
More to come :)
greetings from florida

Welcome back to me!
It's been way to long since I wrote anything and would like to start posting again as soon as I have some new and interesting things to write about.
I have to go through some medical things and then "I'll be back!"
So for now...if you are reading this...please keep me in your prayers :) Thanks!

As of today, I am totally freelance...I am not connected to any stores, groups, organizations or people (except my family). It's OK for now, but I just don't know what direction God wants me to go, so I am staying put...that's it!

it's been quite a while since i posted anything on my blog, mostly because i have been going to facebook for all my contacts & info.
looking forward to 2010 being a great year for me & my family, especially after the rough year we had in 2009.

I never thought I would enjoy being on facebook and now I can't stay off of it!
Reconnecting with my old high school friends, seeing pictures of them now, with their families and sharing memories has been great.
Also, preparing for surgery, which may take a couple of months.
Swimming everyday and eating healthy foods. I feel pretty good and want to get even better.
Made some beaded earrings, a necklace and cell phone charms.

Eleven months ago I had knee replacement surgery on my right knee and now, for the first time, I uttered the words to my doc...let's do the other! wow...I shocked myself & Rico.
The pain has been unbearable in the left and with the right feeling pretty good, and since arthritis never gets better on its own...what else can I do?
Not sure of the date yet, but hopefully in a month or so.
More news to follow!

The Paper Niche (Tammy & Rhonda) really know how to throw a party!
This was a "surprise" brunch for Barbie (going to school full time) and Kelley (having a baby & leaving the Niche) at Charley's Crab in Ft. Lauderdale on the Intracoastal waterway.
Check the background in the pictures.
They came out a little dark because of the glare from the water, but believe me, everyone
was smiling and laughing the entire time. We had lobster & crab omelets, fruit & potatoes, and let's not forget the Bloody Mary's & Mimosa's.
Thanks girls (T & R) and good luck to K & B in their adventures.

Are they cute or what???
These are the latest in my collection. Bumble Bee's. They will be packaged in two's.

The body is about one inch or so, perfect for your scrapbook page or for card making.
Maybe a magnet on the back for the fridge.

As you all know...I make these birds, and there are 100's of them flying around out there...
well, I haven't seen what anybody is doing with them.
I knew the very talented and creative Melissa would come up with something amazing and here it is. Check out her blog (below) for more of her fab artwork...and her beautiful baby boy as well.

Dropped in to the local Michael's for ONE thing and found a few sale items...even their $1 section was 30% off...what would you do??? They had the cutest little note cards, journals, paper, etc, for .70 cents! Great little gift items to tuck in to a basket. I also picked up a few chipboard albums in the shape of a house, cloud and sun...they had more shapes, but I had to stop myself. Made by crayola, with the key ring and all! What a deal...check it out if you get a chance.
Then I ran over to Jo Ann's and they are having a summer sale...50%-70% of just about everything. Too much fun!

After a fun filled day of beading and scrapbooking,
my prize from Martha Stewart arrived! It is 416 pages
of creative goodness! Can't wait to view every single, well
photographed project and page...to be continued!
Below are some pictures of our day.
My granddaughter, Hayley & I blinged up wooden crosses,
hers is on the left and I like it much more than mine!
Hayley working with wire
Bead class: Today 11:00, my first class teaching this,
we made the dragonfly that I always wear.
Charlene...she made a beautiful
beaded dragonfly in blues & greens

I know I have already posted these birds, but since the last time I have made about 100 more of them...I can't stop!
When I close my eyes, I see them!
I love these little birdies, each and every one...they have become an obsession...I find paper with great designs and have to make them. So, I cut and assemble until they look just right and when I think they are perfect...they can fly away...although, I find a few special ones, that I will keep to make cards, or put a magnet on the back (below), or maybe even make a layout for my scrapbook...but in the meantime, I just love looking at them...
you can find them on etsy: http://camille1955.etsy.com
or locally at the Paper Niche in Plantation or Stamp Shack in Ft. Lauderdale.
tweet tweet...how sweet!
