Back in the Saddle Again

For those of you that know me you know that I have been fighting illness since April. You also know that October and November are the most intense months of the year for me as I run and organize an auction dinner to benefit the pediatric Oncology unit at Akron Childrens Hospital. You can read all about it on my other blog

On average we have around 55o in attendance. This project, on top of my other schedule complexity takes over my life. We also have 25 children with cancer that attends and it is my job to make it an extraordinary memorable night for them in every way.

In addition to this a child that I am extremely close to is terminal and I want to spend as much time with her as I can.

So with all of that being said, I apologize for not posting prompts. I will start on Thursday and post prompts to update you.

I am also very behind on my Design Team duties. VERY UNLIKE ME! Again those of you that know me know that I am a SHOW UP girl and really have little tolerance for those that commit and do not follow through on things. This has been a lesson in humility , judgment and PRIDE for me. Ouch. I apologize to my design team peers and to Kelly and Luisa (owners of the teams I design for).It is so difficult to admit that I can not do it all.

Please stop back on Thursday with updates on ScrapFit and Scrapbooking Divas as well as some prompts to start you on the process of catching up!

Love to all,
