2023 Info

 Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a good start to the New Year.
Challenge 220 will go live on the 1st of February 2023.
The Design Team and Guest Designers create beautiful creations for Challenge 220.

I would like to say thank you for all the lovely messages during December for Christmas and my health.
December was a busy and icky month. My daughter and her husband come to visit us from South Africa and we all had a lovely Christmas. On the 27th I didn't feel so well and luckily the two love birds went on Honeymoon to Italy and Germany. I was taken to the hospital on the 27th of Dec and was in the hospital for a few days. I got out and on the 3rd of January, I went back to the hospital. I got influenza and an Asthma attack. In the end, I had problems with my lungs and breathing. 

I am still inhaling medication and taking antibiotics and Cortisone. I still do not have a voice. I can speak two or three words then nothing. 😏 One day I feel a bit better and then the next day I am back to no breath and very tired. I am taking it slow and day by day.

I am looking forward to starting with the Challenges and creating again. 
Wishing you all a lovely week and see you on the 1st of February 2023.
