I hope to see lots of friends and neighbors this Saturday. Tell all your friends and bring the whole family.

That’s the end of the blatant plug for the craft fair. ūüôā On a personal note I just had a lower back procedure today so I’m either going to be feeling great Saturday or I’ll be doubled over in pain. I’m hoping for the feeling great part. I’ll know better tomorrow morning when the pain pills wear off.

What’s on the Workbench This Week

It was a pretty busy week. I got out and about but is wasn’t all fun and games. My little baby Dixie had to go to the vet for some minor surgery. She developed some bumps on her chest, I panicked and the Vet said they should be removed. Our Vet, Dr Esbeck from the Sawnee Animal Clinic is super good and has taken care of all my babies for the last 10 years or more. Dixie is doing great. She is tolerating the stitches and has not needed the cone of shame.

My infusion therapy was awesome! The Doctors cranked the dose up and I feel great this week.

The awesome box of punches below got delivered Tuesday. I guess I ordered them while I was a little bit foggy after my infusion because I sure don’t remember it. But heck who doesn’t like a box of EK punches!! This takes care of all the square one’s I’ve been jonesing for.

I’ve gotten behind on my Paper Pumpkin sets too. Here are 2 that I still need to get through.

The doctor says it’s all good

One more trip to the doctor before the big July 4th show. I don’t talk (or type) much about it but pain is a bitch! I’ve had so much the past few years that this new therapy has been a huge turn around for me. I still have pain but it’s not a constant gnawing 8-10 level pain like it was just last year. Since the fibromyalgia therapy started the middle of last year I’ve actually enjoyed many days with a level 3 pain. This coming week I’m going in for a simple epidural to target the actual physical pain in¬†my hips and lower back. These treatments have also been a big help and were only possible because of the¬†fibromyalgia therapy which got rid of all the never pain long enough for the doctors (and me) to find the physical pain underneath it all.

We got our space assignment letter Wednesday. We will be in space 45-A (whatever that means) freebiexThe craft show runs all day right up till dark. Please stop by and say hi. Let me know you saw this on CardDoc.net and I’ll give you a free card with every 4 you buy. (everybody else has to buy 5 to get the freebie)

Enough of my rambling, the bottom line is hopefully I’ll be able to handle the long long day in Marietta for the Fourth of July show. Here are all the cards and gift card holders, lots of gift card holders, I’ve made this past week. I’m so worried, anxious and excited about this first show. I’ve made so many cards and I hope it’s enough.

See you in Marietta!!

Busy Busy Card Making Time

It’s been a busy week here at the Card Doc. We’re getting ready for the Marietta Craft Fair the 4th of July in Marietta Ga. and I’ve been making cards like a mad woman this Memorial Day weekend. My studio photographer dug out the 4th of July decorations and had fun with the newest batch of cards. They are all bright and festive cards with a definite summer flair to them. If you’d like to purchase any of our hand made cards contact us directly, leave a message or comment or visit our face book page. ¬†Better yet stop by and see us at the Marietta Craft Fair at the Square in Marietta on the 4th of July.

It’s a tag and a card in one extra heavy Kraft envelope with a tie-on string. Great for those hard to wrap gifts for mom or dad.

Nothing says fun in the sun quite like flying a kite. Great card for that special summer time birthday.

IMG_1027187

That’s it for now. These increase the inventory about 50 cards. I can’t, won’t and don’t, just make one. :-). there are 5-10 of each available. ¬†See you in Marietta July 4th.
