bookmarks featuring E.A.D Designs

Happy 2010! I have had this idea for these bookmarks for months now, and earlier this week I had some time to sit down and create just for me. I am homeschooling Ashlyn using the k-12 program and I am constantly using bits of scrap paper to mark the pages in our books. Now she can use these and I can continue to use scraps until I make myself a set. :) I used the Alphabet Vinyl rub on set for the letters. I had to get a bit creative with an "e" on the Literatre bookmark, but it works.

Do you have any resolutions? I typically don't make them, but I am hopeful for some good things to happen this year. 2009 wasn't horrible, but it sure was stressful and sapped a lot out of me. What I want most this year is to "figure out" what is "wrong" with Ashlyn. She has another colonoscopy scheduled for January 12th and they are also going to re-run all the blood work to test for other auto-immune diseases. She's not been feeling well at all the past few weeks; looking sickly pale and washed out with dark circles under her eyes and running a low-grade fever almost non-stop, and she has been very clingy. She looks horrible and has a decrease in evergy again. It's easier on me now that I am down to working 20 hours a week now so I can take the time to just lie with her. This seems to be something she needs.

I am also hoping to go to college. I think I am going to try to become a nurse. I will have plenty of pre-req's before I can begin the program so that will take at least a year and then some. I plan to go to the local community college and figure out what I need to do. I will need financial aid, which I hope I can qualify for. I need something, but I figure it will all work out.

I hope 2010 is a great year for you! Full of many blessings. happiness and success! Now if I could just find some time to scrap regularly...
