Mom's ATC - Getting Close!

Hi Friends ~

I wanted to update you...we're getting close to the end of our first ATC swap and I thought I'd give you a bit of an update.

Mom is doing well.  She went back last Thursday and had her stitches out.  4 more weeks of no weight on her foot BUT she is going back to work today (4 days a week).  I thought she might want to try for 1/2 days for a bit but she's stubborn and wanted to go the full day.  Anyway, dad will be dropping her off and picking her up each day.  I go over and spend a couple days with her on the weekends while Dad is at work (he's retired but works part time on Fri nite/Sunday a.m.).    We've been watching vintage spook movies from the 40's/50's/60's and I help gather craft supplies for her to help pass the time :)

On to the swap....

I've got 4 packages in so far ~

Creatology; Ink-Pattie; Helen C and Mom has hers finished as well!  They are all super and I can't wait to share their creations with you all :)

We all have 12 more days to finish up the cards and drop them in the mail so they arrive by 10-8-11!  I will sort, repackage and post as quickly as possible.  Of course I'm sure some people will drop out by then BUT it is looking like a magnificent swap from what I've seen and heard!

Getting very exciting now!!!


  1. So Glad your Mom is doing bettter Roni. Tell her not to push it too quickly.

  2. Moms are stubborn like that. I hope she doesn't overdo herself. But then they raised us and survived. :o)
    My this ATC swap is getting close. Very exciting...

  3. Hi
    Just recovering from surgery. Have a huge order of new stamp stuff arriving in the morning. I can hardly wait. Worked on my layouts when I was at Mayo, so just need to get the pieces done and put together.

    I plan to have them done by next Monday, and in the mail to you on Tuesday the 4th.

    Plenty of time to play when I am supposed to stay put and not run around till my stitches come out this Friday.
    Blessing, Mary

  7. I am so glad that your Mom is feeling better. I hope that she keeps healing rapidly. :-)

  8. So glad to hear your mom is doing well and able to go back to work.

    I've finished up the Halloween ATCs and am almost finished with the general ATCs. They'll be in the mail to you first of next week.
