A Little Housekeeping



Wow...it's been a busy crazy time here lately!  First off, hubby has to have hernia surgery in a few weeks.  He finally went to have an ultrasound and to see a general surgeon this past week.  He has a hernia under his belly button the size of a softball...yes, it's THAT big!  With his history of cancer, things like that make us uber nervous.  Anyway, all's good and his hernia will be going bye bye soon!

Next on the to-blog list is my giving a HUGE thank you to Amy over at Love To Crop!  I won some of her blog candy from a hop a couple of weeks ago, and instead of just announcing my name, she wrote the SWEETEST post about my blog!  We have lots of new followers because of it too!  I've noticed that she really tries to help and promote the up and coming blogs, and I think that's absolutely amazing! You ROCK Amy!

And speaking of new followers...WELCOME to you all!!!  This little blog is starting to grow, and I'm so excited!  Every time I log on and see a new face, I do a happy dance!  No, you don't understand...I really do!  Poor hubby is getting so tired of seeing me bounce around.  Hey...maybe THAT'S how he got his hernia...from laughing at me flailing all over the house like a mad woman every time a new follower comes along!!  Anyway, thank you...and thanks for being here!

 Oh, I almost forgot to mention, we have a Facebook page now!  Woot!  I feel so official!  When you get to Facebook, just search Scrap This Save That.  We need four more people to "like" us before we can officially keep the name!  Once that happens, I'll start posting from there too!  Come like the page...the page likes you :)

Next on the agenda...Annette over at My Crafty Designs gave me a Stinkin' Cute Blog Award!  Adorable!  And my first one!  SWEET!!!  And thank you! 



Last, but certainly not least, I will be participating in my first-ever blog hop on August 5th and 6th!!!  Kassidy over at Inking It Up Crazy is hosting, and chose me as a participant! Thanks Kassidy!!!   It's going to be an "Old School" blog hop, meaning that we're each going to be doing projects with Cricut cartridges that are at least two years old.  Time to dust those puppies off and revive them!  I think it's an awesome idea, and I can't wait!



Well bloggers, readers, fans and friends, I hope this posting has found you all happy, healthy and thriving!  Have a WONDERFUL day!

Amy,
Thank you for popping over to my blog and sharing your story with me. It brought tears to my eyes and I am so glad your husband beat it! It makes it all seem so much more "real!" I am glad I can help in some small way! Hugs to you and your hubby and my goodness give him an extra good luck squeeze on his upcoming hernia surgery!

Hi hun,
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. And, thanks for being a new follower. If it's any consolation, I had hernia surgery earlier this year and have to say, I feel so blessed to not be dealing with that "annoying" pain anymore...so best wishes for a speedy recovery after his surgery! Just make sure he takes it easy and keeps ice on it for a few weeks.
Happy to be a follower!
:O)

Hi Am - thanks for participating on the Quick Quotes blog hop. I thought that was a lot of fun. My family had a blast at the game farm. It was such a fun day trip.
