Health News & Funday Friday Challenge News

Hello my sweet friends~

My apologies to you all that last Friday's challenge did not post. There is a very good reason for this, my health. I have been struggling for months with my health and in the past two weeks, my health has been downhill and as a result, I was hospitalized and was just released yesterday. Due to the situation with my health and me not being able to give my 100% at this time, I am saddened to say that the Funday Friday challenges will be postponed and resume again in the Fall. I feel that this will be the best option right now for everyone. I am the kind of person that likes to be on top of things and give my all to everything that I do. I have not been able to do that recently and that is not fair to you. Also with summer being here, this frees up time for everyone to enjoy summer and time with family. My design team has been amazing and they could also use this time to kick back and enjoy summer without the worries of meeting deadlines and getting projects completed. I hope you all understand.

This is not goodbye to the challenges, they will be back. I am thinking sometime late September or early October. This will give me the time needed to get my health back on track and to devote myself completely to you again. I miss crafting too. It has been rough for me not to be able to join you all in the challenges and get crafty with ya. I will check in with you here on the blog and give you updates on my health from time to time and I will use this time off to also brainstorm and bring more fun things to you once we start back up. I know that my blog has suffered with my health and I feel like I have let you down. I am so sorry!!! You are so important to me and I want to be able to be well and give you everything that I can.. like I used to. So please be patient with me and say some prayers for me if you will?

I have not had a chance to go through any email yet so if you have personally sent me an email and have not heard back, I am not ignoring you! I promise to get back to you. I will also be announcing the last of the Funday Friday Challenge winners on Friday. If you have won a challenge in the past two weeks and have not heard from me, do not worry. You will get your prizes. I will be answering all emails all week as I go back into the hospital on Monday for tests.  Thank you so much for your support, love and concern. Much love back to you all. XOXO

Until next time~ Enjoy life's blessings~

  6. Oh my goodness I figured something was going on.
    The first and most IMPORTANT thing is for you to take care of yourself my friend. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Please, please, please take care of yourself.
    The challenges and blog can wait. We'll be here when you feel up to returning.
    Sending you big hugs and lots of well wishes.

  7. Hope you are fully recovered very quickly. Very wise to take the summer out to look after yourself.

  8. I am so sorry to hear this. Your health certainly comes first and in no way have you let anyone down regarding the challenges. Your priority is getting yourself better. Praying that there will be a correct diagnosis and treatment and that you will make a good recovery. xx

  9. Sorry to hear that your health is declining Jo, I was hoping that being with family would help you get back on track with the health thing-hopefully it still will. I think taking a break is a good idea for everyone, that way everyone can enjoy the summer. I will pray that you get back on your feet soon. Hugs, Brenda

  10. So sorry to hear about your Health Jo! :( I'll send prayers your way for a quick recovery and hope you are healthy very, very soon. Blogs & challenges can always wait... Your health can not! Try and take care of yourself! HUGS! :o)
