Got Followers - Momo!

Hey everyone- Momo had this great idea that if you have under 200 followers (that's me) she put up a link so you can share your blog and get more followers and if you have more than 200 she is offering a prize for those who comment.  Thanks Momo! Please go to her site and check out all of us who need followers.

I will be away for a while going in tomorrow for a hysterectomy.  Hopefully when I get back on my computer I will  have lot's of new followers.  Definitely  something to look forward too,  Anyone who wants to leave suggestions on how to deal with surgical menopause I would love to hear from you.

Im getting my craft room well organized so I can do lots of crafting while recovering.

Thanks for being my new follower. See you all in a few days.

Update- yes I still am crafting!!

I promised myself that I would work more on layouts and YES I have been doing that.  Its just that I can't post them just yet because I am submitting them to some things first and have been asked to wait.
I do have a couple of cards in the works that should go up by the  end of the week.
