Wishing you Love-n-Luck!!!

Happy Valentine's Day...

Love is in the Air and I hope that you all have a wonderfully sweet day filled with Love, Laughter, and Lots & Lots of Hugs!!!
As for the rest of February and the upcoming month of March...I wish you all great LuCk and good TiMeS! 

Spring will be here soon...and that means I will be designing and featuring another Reversible Wood Banner...My next one will be Easter-themed on one side and Spring-themed on the other. I have to get to work on that soon...Easter is so early this year!

My Love-n-Luck Reversible Wood Banner is still available to create at the Little Blue House in a Buffet or you may purchase as a kit. Kits are provided with BluePrints (Instruction Guide and pic's). Call the LBH if you are interested in grabbing one of these before they are all gone. (817) 431-7930

I enjoyed the evening watching Maddi bake cookies and fill goodie bags for her besties at school and Hayden was so cute getting his gifts and card all ready for his girlfriend Paige...so sweet! I have heart shaped doughnuts for breakfast in the morning...I know, I know, not the healthiest choice but my kiddos will LoVe them! As for Scott and I, we have no plans...we gave up going out on Valentine's Day long ago...as we've aged we have no patience for crowds and long waits...LoL! A quiet evening at home suits us just fine.

Hope your day is filled with sweetness!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Go find your family & friends and give'm a Big Hug!
XXOOXXOO

my Walk continues...



I want to thank all of you for your continued prayers and for all the love and hugs I have rec'd from so many of you since all my health issues have come to light.  My surgery went well and I am recovering nicely. Happy to be back at work and doing what I love! 

I went back to see my Doc on Monday at UTSW for my post op visit and to learn more about my Pathology results. Of course, I went in hoping to hear that all was good and this walk was over. But instead, I was told something else. My results show that I have a unique blend of "C" cells...(I still don't like to say the word...don't even like to type it...) I have been labeled a high risk patient and was told there is a high probability that these cells will return and could attempt to settle in other parts of my body. Doc says from here on out...we have to be pro-active and that's just what I intend to do! 

  I will begin preventive drug therapy that will help to block these cells from clustering and deter the mutation process. Doc says I am an ideal candidate for this and they have seen great results. There will be a few side effects...at first. So I ask that you will pray for them to be mild and to dissipate quickly after my body becomes more used to the meds. Doc says I should see no limitations to daily activities and routines. All this info was a lot to take in (I'm giving you the short version)...but its all soaking in now and I'm becoming more determined by the minute that I can handle whatever comes my way with God's strength and compassion. 


I have a great team of Doctors and I know if we stay ahead of this thing...All will be well for a very long, long, time! I also trust that God knows all and He has a great purpose for me. Once again, I choose to Trust Him and Embrace this walk. I'm so thankful for your continued prayers and the loving encouragement you all show me every day! I promise that I am good and all is well! 

I'm mentally, spiritually, and physically ready to do my part and keep my body healthy...for many years to come!

Much love to you all...
Miss Tracy :)

Calling all Page Builders!!!

Hello Friends!
Hard to believe it's already February 1st....and you know what that means?? It's time for 4 new Page Builder double layouts!
 
Page Builders has been designed by me, Miss Tracy, to help you easily create fabulous layouts for your Scrapbooks! Each month I design 4 new double 12x12 layouts and create Page Builder BluePrints (aka instruction guide and cut list) to go with each layout. You will have two fabulous options to choose from when it comes to my Page Builder Layouts.

Option #1:

You can purchase the Page Builder BluePrints Guide only (which will include all 4 NEW layouts) for $10. The Guide will include pictures, cutting dimensions, and instructions so that you can "build pages" from your own paper stash. The Page BuilderBluePrints Guide will be emailed to you at the time of purchase.

Option #2:

If time is an issue or you want your Page Builder layout to be just like the sample, you will now be able to purchase a Page Builder Kit for each of the four layouts. You have the option to purchase one, two, three or all four layouts. Page Builder LO Kits will be $15 each and available while supplies last. All papers will be pre-cut for you and title/embellishments will be included along with BluePrints for that specific layout.

Here are my Page Builder Layouts for February:
 "A Perfect Day" layout

 "Barn Door" Layout

 "Delightful" Layout

"Extreme" Layout

They are now on display at the Little Blue House! Kits are ready to go and BluePrint Guides will be emailed at the time of purchase.
Please stop by or call the LBH to reserve your Guide or Kits. We will ship to you if desired. If you are local, then I invite you to join me at the LBH for Page Builder Day...It's great time to meet up with other Page Builders and build our Pages together.

Page Builders Day

Tues. 2/26
10am-Noon and 6:30p-8:30p

This month, I will have the Sew Stamper Wheels out for everyone to play with and add fun details on their layouts.
If you have any questions about this Scraptastic opportunity, please let me know. Happy Page Building my friends!!!
Miss Tracy :)
