New Year Coming...Time for some changes...

I hope each of you had a happy and blessed Christmas.
We had a quiet time, just the two of us for the most part
well, us and our cats...
one of which had some health issues
and, long story short,has hyperthyroidism.
We're going to new vet tomorrow morning
to see if he is a candidate for radioactive iodine treatment.
Prayers, please, that he is
and that they can go ahead and start the treatment tomorrow.
The alternative treatments aren't as appealing
and have considerable side effects.
If anyone has had any experience with anything dealing with
feline hyperthyroidism, I would love to hear from you...

So prayers, please for Bad Cat (and Momma!)
The good news is--this is the GOOD Russell cat when it comes to vet visits!
Do not try to pill this cat at home!
My other news is...
I will no longer be a Close to My Heart consultant after March 31, 2014.
Things are a'changin
and those of us who aren't super saleswomen are no longer welcome.
So, so long, know the song!
I am not, by any means, leaving the stamping/scrapbooking world!
There are TONS of companies with beautiful papers and supplies
and I will be sharing my creations right here as I have all along.
I could never ever limit myself to just one product line---
one of my best friends is a Stampin' Up consultant---
I LOVE Graphic 45 papers--and many, many more.
A Cherry on Top gets a lot of my business
and if you are looking for kits that you simply cut and put together
(they come with detailed instructions--and the embellishments and papers
are beautiful and of high quality)
check out The Button Farm Club.
You may gasp at the cost--but once you get your hands on a kit--
you'll be saying "how do they send so much for so little?"
I've only completed one of 5 kits so far---
but I cannot wait to do the others.

For Sale: Stamps and Paper Towers

Every year this time I get in a clean it out-get it organized mood
and today I did a little work in my magic kingdom.
And I started with some CTMH stamp sets.
While these are no longer available through CTMH directly, they are in good shape
(some sets are missing a stamp or two as so indicated on the photo;
some are used, some are brand new!)
Prices do not include shipping.
If you are not familiar with CTMH stamps--
they are clear stamps that come on a carrier sheet.
You remove the stamp from the sheet, attach to an acrylic block
and then stamp.
The advantage to any clear stamp is that, unlike wood mounted rubber stamps
you can SEE where you are stamping!
The stamp sets do not come with blocks-those you purchase separately.
If you are interested, please e-mail me at
or message me via Facebook-Sharon Russell-Oak Island, NC.

Obviously, I do have cats and they have been in my craft room...
