I Feel the Love Project

Hello everyone! I have been very behind in posting, but not without reason.  Last Sunday, while I was training for my ocean swim in the ocean, I had a kidney stone attack and have been passing them all week.  If anyone has ever had kidney stones, you will know it has been a challenging week and to come down with passing one while swimming 1/4 mile off shore, the shark risk was no longer a worry. And I am not kidding about the fact there was a true shark worry since there has been several sightings of hammer heads and great whites off the local coast thanks to a random colony of 300+ seals that took up residency on the “world’s safest beaches” of Carpinteria and Summerland.  I sadly admit I had to be pulled in by a support kayaker; not my most shinning moment.

So here I am finally getting back into the craft room, even though I am still not finished passing my stones to make a project for the I Feel the Love Project of making a Halloween card for the kids at Casa Pacifica.  As I mentioned in an earlier post this cause hits close to home and is close to my heart.  You still have time to participate in this awesome cause!  Deadline to link up is September 30th!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “swimmin’ with the sharks” pie with me!

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.
