Chanukah and Christmas cards, catching up with my life.

 Here are a few cards that I made for my sone and Daughter-in-law.  As you can guess, they celebrate different holidays.  I have been having some difficulty uploading myopic to my blog, but  I think that I have finally figured out!!





I have also been busy with my parents.  My dad is going into a nursing home after he gets out of the rehab that he is in.  It has been a very difficult and time consuming period for me.  My mom sold their house and needs to be out by December 28th.  We bought her a villa in a 55 and over community.  I am grateful that my sister has come down to help pack mom up.  I just couldn't handle that plus working at the same time.
