A couple of updates and a thank you!!

OK, first, let me tell you the update on the Christening cards.  My brother and niece (she's 12) came to mom's after the party, and my niece was recounting how the girls liked the cards.  She said the older one asked her if she made the card, because Hello Kitty is her absolute favorite, and the card was awesome!!  I said, "Wait a minute.  A four year old said that???"  She said, "Aunt Kim, she's not 4, she's almost 8!!"  LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I cracked up.  So the moral of the story is do not trust a single 30-something man to tell you ages of children that aren't his own.  While he said 4 and one and a half, they are actually almost 8 and 3!!!!  HAHAHA!!!!  Too funny.

Second, I want to THANK all of you with your encouraging and kind comments on my post earlier about possibly having to sell my Cricut and carts and stop crafting.  On Monday, another of my brothers (I have four!) said, "Hold on a second, something isn't right.  Let me have your W2's."  He called later to tell me that I must have done somehting wrong (not a shocker), because he worked it all up and I only owe NJ $450, not $2,000!!!!  Thank God for small miracles.  Does this solve my overall financial porblems??  NOPE!!  LOL.  However, in the short term, it does solve this crisis.  I really appreciate all of your support and kind words, so I wanted to thank everyone for that. 

Thirdly, I have today off and I plan on working on a bunch of fun things, so I hope you all decide to come back over the next few days and check it all out!!


  1. Kim,
    To funny about the kids. What do men know? lol
    Also, great news about the taxes, I am sure that is a huge relief. It's alot easier to budget $450 rather than $2000.
    So happy for you sweetie

  2. Re: The kids ages, oh my gosh, that is hilarious! I'm so thrilled to hear about your taxes. That definitely seems more manageable. I'm so glad you can remain in the world of Cricut!! Can't wait to see more later. Have fun!

  3. Great story about the kids ages :) I am glad your financial situation is a little brighter than you thought. I know it's still not good, but at least there is a little improvement in the immediate need for funds.


I appreciate your comments, so THANK YOU!!
