Two steps forward...

one step back. 

Hey guys, sorry about being MIA the last few days. It has been weird not posting regularly but it just can't be helped right now. My life is currently split into two separate factions, when I'm not at work and home my days are spent at the hospital with my mom.  And even when I'm not physically with her she is constantly on my mind.
Mom is still in the ICU and on the ventilator. She underwent dialysis for her kidneys yesterday and we are hopeful that will help her on the long road to recovery. Mom is just so sick that it is going to be a slow process. So your continued prayers and positive thoughts would be most appreciated. :)

I have actually packed up my Copics and done some coloring during the down times so all I need to do now is get those images onto cards. I'm still not sure how consistently I'll have something to post though since most of what I've been coloring is for the upcoming previews starting next week. In the meantime I'll try my best to have something to share even if they are non-coloring cards, like this one from a past class.

Anywho, thanks for hanging in there with me. I ♥ you more than I can say.

This card is super cute and how appropriate with all that has gone on with your Mom. I will continue to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. It is always difficult when you have a loved one in the hospital for any extended period of time. I hope things get better soon for you guys, hugz

See what happens when you are a regular blogger - we worry like mad when you don't post. So glad your mum is getting better bit by bit and it's understandable that you worry and want to be with her. You look after yourself, your mum and your family and we'll be here when things have improved.

Big hugs and prayers, Mette

I'm sure that a lot of us will say the same to you, Amy. I am very thankful for a bloggy friend like you. I hope you know that you can come to me for anything. Of course, even if I don't get to visit your blog every day or even every week, your blog / cards/ creations will always be one that I will go back to and read each line/ and view each detail. I'm sorry that your mom's recovery is slow and long. I am glad though that she is getting better each day. And that you're getting to color - and even though you are worried about your mom, this little bit of time for yourself will keep you healthy and sane and strong for her. Love you too. Hugs!

PS. Your mason jars are wonderful. They are colored so amazingly.
