AngelHood 2 & Update

I wanted to let everyone know that we now have AngelHood Blogging Sisters which is created at Paper Wings. There is a total of 10 Angels in each AngelHood. Check it out and join if you are a TAC Angel. Also be sure to check Paper Wings out. It is a place for all Angels to gather and talk about their business, life in general and also to share ideas. There is a lot of stuff there and you won't be disappointed.

The links to my AngelHood Sisters are to the side of my post. Go and check them out! Everyone is so awesome.
Now for my update. I haven't talked a lot about me in the last couple of posts. I am holding my own. The chemo is going okay. I have had some extreme fatigue but that is to be expected. At least I didn't have the nausea this time around. I think it is because we changed the meds around a little bit. Hopefully I am on the upswing and will have a good week before I go back for my next treatment next Friday.

I am going to go with my sister tonight to her church. They have a scrapbooking night once a month. Sounds like fun and I really want to get out amongst people that love to do what I do. I may not get a thing done but I sure can socialize and visit....LOL

I thought I needed to share something so I went and found this cute little tote I made with the Scor-Pal. Actually my very good friend, Avis Anderson, had made me one when she came to visit about 1 1/2 years ago. I finally made one when I got the Scor-Pal. How cute is it? It holds 3" x 3" cards.
Here are the directions for the tote and cards: Hope you try them out!

Avis’s 3” x 3” Card Tote:

Tote Directions:
1 piece of cardstock 5 ½” x 7 ½”
2 pieces of cardstock ½” x 6 ½”

Lay your cardstock on the scor pal with the 5 ½” going across the top. Score at 1 ¼” and 4 ¼”. To score at the 1 ¼” move your paper to the ¼” mark and use the score line at 1 ½”. Move back even with the side to do the 4 ¼” mark.
Turn paper so the 7 ½” is across the top. Score and 3” and 4 ½”. Cut the tabs in the small section to the scored lines and tape inside the sides of the box. Stamp the handles and bottom of the tote. Fasten handles to the tote with mini brads.
Make 3” x 3” cards by cutting cardstock 3” x 6” and folding in half for card and decorate to your desire.

I love this card set and tote! I feel kinda like I know you already through PW and I'm very excited to learn more about you through Angelhood 2. I love your blog post awhile back about "Myrtle." It gave me goosebumps to read about this awesome gesture of friendship!
