I admit I am not a consistent blogger. "Now you see me, now you don't!" The last time I had my blog updated was on September 3. But I am proud to say that even if I don't blog regularly, I am a consitent scrapbooker, joining challenges and contests and online crops. Last September and early October, I participated in online crops and challenges in the following sites: Scrapmuse, Savvy n Sassy, Color Me Daisy, Scrappin Kids and Busy Bee Scrapbooking. Of course, I was also active in ScrapWords where I am a DT member...until the DAY came. Last October 9, my DD Dannah was hospitalized because of Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever and Typhoid Fever. Three days later, exactly on my 38th Birthday, my DS Jigs was also diagnosed with Dengue and was also confined in the hospital. We stayed in the hospital for a total of 10 days...no internet, no scrapbooking!!!
But now, our lives are back to normal. Jigs got out of the hospital last Saturday (October 18) and the next day, it was Dannah's turn to go home. Thank God they're both okay now. Thanks to those who said their prayers for their fast recovery.
Before they were hospitalized, I was supposed to blog about the prizes I got from the various contests and challenges I joined in from the period of May to August 2008. I had them shipped to my Kuya Eric's place in California. Her mother, my Tita Olive went home last September 29 and I got all my prizes on October 5, a Sunday.
Here are my prizes which I haven't even "touched" yet. I can't wait to do some projects with them.
