To those who have followed "Livin' life on the flip side of 50" - thanks for your faithfulness - for the rest who are reading this, welcome! It's been a while... and lots has happened since my last post ... but I am happy to find it still here with thousands of views! - thanks to Google!
"Livin' Life on the flip side of 50" is a "catching" name don't you think? I thought about beginning all over again with a new blog, but I'd want it to have the same name - so why not just begin right where I left off some time ago!
The first week of 2016 - and I don't know where the time went, but it flew by and it feels like I've been living on the flip side of 50 for a loooong time now! I'm still making handmade Kalico Kards and they can still be found at www.kalicokards.com along with a few framed keepsakes and other gifts if you want to stop by. I'm not doing as many craft shows as I had been doing, but because I love meeting new people, I still look forward to the shows because I always come away inspired - and heaven knows how much that means when we're livin' on the flip side of 50!
I've added some new items to my website: crocheted winter scarves and knitted jewelry scarves with pendants for those who are interested. There's just not enough time in a day to accomplish what I'd like to however, between trying to stay healthy, take care of a husband and a home, a website there's little time for much else. I did have a few issues with a heart problem over the past 6 months and 2 emergency visits to the hospital, all the doctor appointments added to an already full schedule wasn't what I planned for
Enough for now - I'll have to tell you about what caused me to be taken by ambulance to the emergency room twice within 6 weeks
I am a fabric artisan who found her passion when most grandmothers are thinking of retiring! Creating fabric greeting cards for more than 20 years, I've accumulated many quotes, quips, puns and sayings which give Kalico Kards character! After sharing my handmade cards successfully at arts and craft shows locally I was encouraged to offer them to others on the world wide web! The fabric designs and the messages on my cards are created to warm the heart and tickle the spirit of their recipient. Doing what I love is an inspiring way to work - it means making new friends and hearing their wonderful comments about how Kalico Kards have inspired their lives. It's a huge motivator. Time passes quickly when you're doing what you enjoy! Log onto my website at www.kalicokards.com and leave me a comment - I'd love hearing from you!
