My son Jim was found early this morning and taken to a hospital ER where he was stabilized and returned home. I talked with him a short time ago again this morning and he is feeling well and his blood sugars are coming down. No lasting ill effects we hope from 3 days with no medications. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE for your kindness and prayers to help find Jim. A very stressful time but all is well. He is home and safe.

Jimbo loves Jim! He will be so happy to see him again! :<)

Thank you again to everyone for their kind e-mails and comments and prayers to bring Jim home safe and sound. You are the best! Wishing you a very happy day! Mine will be as soon as I get some sleep!

Those of you who follow my blog are familiar with my oldest son Jim, whom I write about often. He loves working on his art projects and I have posted photos from time to time. He is best buddies with my cat Jimbo, who is Jim's cat and I just take care of him. :<) I need you to help me locate my son as he has now been gone for over 26 hours and without his medications and inhaler, etc.

This is my posting from my Facebook page which will explain a bit more. If you could share this on your Facebook pages would be wonderful. I pray that we find him soon.

Thank you!

I am asking for your help in locating my son - he has been missing since 10:00 am yesterday morning. His name is Jim Klint and he is 55 years old. Jim has a borderline disability and lives in an adult family home and he has severe medical problems (diabetes, asthma, hypertension among others - and takes medication for bi-polar) so it is very urgent that we find him as it has now been 24 hours and he has missed his medications yesterday afternoon, last night and this morning. Jim had no money with him, no water, he may have his cell phone but it is turned off so we cannot reach him. He was wearing black sweat pants, a black hooded sweatshirt with zipper front, socks and plaid slip-on beach shoes and a blue/white trucker hat. Jim had mentioned to people that he was going to hitchhike to CA so it is my great fear that he may have succeeded in getting a ride and no longer be in the area for us to find him. Please, if you see Jim - please contact the UW police in Madison, Wi at 608-262-2957 and/or contact me here. Jim is in a life/death danger because of his medical issues and we need to find him.I need your help.

My New Door Hanger - Once Upon A Springtime


I guess it's obvious by this time that I love this Graphic 45 paper collection! I keep finding more projects to make using these beautiful papers. This is my new Spring door hanger and I again did my favorite fussy cutting and layering and adding of Stickles for sparkle.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I am so behind posting and even more behind in visiting other blogs and leaving comments. I hope to do some catch up this weekend! Once again it is a very warm day here in this part of WI, with humidity added today although the thunder storms keep passing us by. We were only 4 degrees from an all time record high for this date with 82 degrees and sunny. I hope that you have a nice weekend!

Two Cards Reversed - Once Upon A Springtime


So much time has passed again since my last post! I have been working on projects but just have not been able to post with life getting in the way as it tends to do at times. This project was to make two thank you cards to be given to two people who worked together on the same issue and found a solution. I was very grateful for their help and wanted to make the cards special so I did the same card for each one, only in reverse of the other. 

I used my current favorite Graphic 45 'Once In A Springtime' paper collection again - fussy cutting and layering and finishing with Stickles for a little sparkle and glitter. I loved how they turned out and was very happy with the result. I hope the people receiving them liked them also. :<)

You can see the layering on the card on the left.

First card.

If you click on the photo to enlarge you can see the glitter.

Second card.

You can see the layering here.

Thank you for visiting my blog today! We have sunshine and temperatures in the 80's today here in this part of WI - I can't believe it! So nice and although storms are forecast for later today and tomorrow, it is so beautiful outside! The windows are wide open and Jimbo is in his glory sitting in the window. I am going to look into getting a harness and leash for him so that I can take him outside for walks in nice weather. 

Tomorrow I will post my new door hanger using the same paper collection. Wishing you a good evening where you are!
