Update on Charlie!

Hi Guys,

I just wanted to post an update on Charlie.  I took this from his CaringBridge site!  Thank you ALL for sending him cards!  If you want to send him more feel free to send more cards!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

    This picture says it all!  Charlie sat up this morning and started talking.  I got to hold him and he hugged me.  Daddy got hugs and so did his "girl."  His white blood count shot up to 4.1 without any GCSF meds and so did his neutrophils.  Meds are slowly being wheened after Charlie being completely "snowed" yesterday from dilaudid, fentynal, and a whole bunch of other stuff.  It was so good to hear his voice again.  He even talked to his grammy on the phone.  I showed him all the beautiful hand-made cards that are being sent to him from all over the United States.  Then, it was "lights out" for him.  Looking forward to tomorrow.

    I'm Back!

    Hi Friends!

    I hope you all had a WONDERFUL weekend!  I sure had a great weekend!  Did any of you craft this weekend?  I was planning on crafting/cleaning my craft space but I ended up getting side tracked so I didn't get much done this weekend.  I am still working on a special project for my friend, Carolanne (sorry it's taking me forever to get it done).  I will post pictures of it when I am finished with it!  Yesterday, I went to church & we had an AMZING service...went out to eat with some AMAZING people & came home to watch the PACKER vs. BEARS game!  It was a nail bitting game until the very last second!  I am happy to say that the PACKERS are going to the SUPER BOWL!!!!!  I am really excited that we get to go to the Super Bowl this year. 

    I am not going to be posting any haul videos anytime soon, because I have TONS & TONS of craft items to use.  So until my stock piles dwindle down I will not be getting ANY craft items unless its something like adhesive or pop dots!  Will any of you join me & Carolanne in this no shopping challenge?!?  It's going to be tough but I think if we do it together we can make it!  I have already broke and have gotten 3 Cricut Lite carts., but no more craft shopping for this girl! 

    Well I have to get going.  I need to start making dinner (making marinated chicken with loaded baked potatoes)...  Have a GREAT day!


    P.S.  Happy Birthday, Robyn(My Pink Stamper)!  Hope your day is filled with tons of laughs and new memories!

    Hi Crafters!

    I just wanted to let you know that I will be MIA tomorrow through Sunday!  I have LOTS of projects I need to get done over the next few days.  I will be hoping on the net to check my mail and FB quick.  So if you need to get intouch with me you can email me or send me a message on FB.  Sunday I don't think I will be on at all due to going to church in the morning and then coming home to watch football!  I am a die hard Packer fan & I will be screaming at the TV come Sunday!  GO PACK GO!

    I will try to do a tour of my craft space soon.  I am trying to get things organized right now, so that might be up sometime next week.  I am also working on some mini's.  If you have any tips on paper bag albums or mini's in general, please leave me a comment!  Speaking of comments; thank you all for leaving me such wonderful comments.  I have been to every single one of your blogs & I have loved the cards you have posted for Charlie! 

    Also please leave me a comment if you would like to have some challenges/sketches on the blog!  Let me know what you guys want to see on here!  I am kinda nervous about doing tutorials so I will be trying to work on that (when I get nervous I talk really fast and you can't understand me). 

    Well I think that's all for now!  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  Stay warm (it's suppose to be single digits here in WI)!  I look forward to reading your comments when I come back on Monday!

    GO PACK GO!!!

    Update on Charlie

    Hi Crafters,

    Just thought I would update you all on Charlie.  Today he is being extubated (removing the ventilator tube)!  He will still be in ICU for a few more days & then he will be transferred back to his BMT room!  Keep the prayers going for the Knuth Family & Charlie! 

    From the bottom of my heart thank you to everyone who has, is, & going to send cards!  Charlie will love every single one of them!

    My card for Charlie

    Hi Crafters,

    Here is my card for Charlie.  I made it real simple!
    Create a Critter
    DCWV paper stack Animal Crackers
    Action Wobble


    Hi Crafters!

    Thank you ALL so much for making cards for Charlie. I have had some of you ask if it's ok with me if you share Charlie's story; feel free to share Charlie's story on your blogs I don't mind at all! The way I see it is if more people hear about Charlie's story the more love and support he and the family will get!

    Hope you all have a wonderful day!


    P.S. Thanks to those who have subscribed to my blog!

    Cards for Charlie

    Hi Craft Friends,

    I was wondering if any of you would be interested in sending cards to 4 year old Charlie. 

    He is battling a rare skin condition called epidermolysis bullosa commonly known as EB, which causes his skin to blister.

    Here is a link to his CaringBridge page.  I hope that you will take some time out of your day to read his story.  It's very touching and he is a fighter and will touch your heart. 

    To send cards please send it to:

    Ronald McDonald House
    Attn:  Knuth Family
    621 Oak Street SE
    Minneapolis, MN  55414

    If you can't send a card to Charlie, then would you just take a little time out of your day to pray for him & his family.  They need all the support they can get right now. 
    If you need anymore information please contact me!  Thank you all so much!
