just a WHIRLWIND- on flight to HSN

I was fortunate to be able to go back to Puerto Rico to teach at The Scrapbook Store event in San Juan. It is always one of those trips that is a highlight. It reminds me of the pure excitement and love for creating and the joy it brings to them. The country has been truly devastated by economic setbacks and they often expressed how hard things are right now. Still they are were so positive. I greatly admired how much passion and love they have for still celebrating life through friendship, family and lots of dancing. This is the ONLY event I ever go to where dancing is nonstop and they even had a dance off on Saturday night. The winning group was a group of "mature" women who KNEW how to move it. Wow... reminder to self- BE MORE CAREFUL and DANCE MORE!!!!!!

I loved teaching with Vicki Boutin and Frank Garcia again. I met Stephanie for the first time too from Prima. It was a lovely event and I also enjoyed filming the TV segments. Thank you Yamille for many laughs, good times and the ability to see my beautiful friends again.

I will be teaching at WHIM SO DOODLE tomorrow night in Florida. (SOLD OUT) It sold out so fast. I have to teach and then race to HSN for pre show prep with hosts and hair and makeup. It's actually really nice to NOT have to worry about that part. This is going to be a CRAZY 24 hours. I open the show up at 12:00 am EST on Wednesday with my Today's Special... my NEW Teresa Collins cut n' emboss machine.

 My next teaching trip will be in the VILLAGES in FL at She Scrapbooks so I hope you will join me there. I am teaching two BIG projects. Urban Market and an ALL day TC Albums Made Easy album/book. 

Here is the Urban Market project...

On the home front... it's HARD. Ty is home but he is really weak and feels horrible. This chemo is just HORRIBLE. I can't sugar coat it. He is such a fighter but just after two chemo's he is beyond weak and very thin. I know it's because he never really recovered from the last transplant and he has to FIGHT and do it again so soon. I am just AMAZED at him and at this will to beat this. The thing with blood cancers... they spread so fast and are usually very hard to treat. So the Salvage chemo is quite intense and geared for cancer patients with relapse or when the chemo treatments do not work for them the first time. I am trying so hard to be strong, but not a day does not go by that I don't cry and beg for MORE strength to help him more. My heart is breaking to see him going down and the toll it is taking on his body.  His mother has been our lifesaver. She comes and does everything for our family and Ty when I am away. She realizes how hard it is for me to leave him and she always tries to make me feel supported with everything going on.  

I wish I had photos to post. I just don't have a lot of time right now with post all the amazing photos from the events. I do have many on my facebook and instagram page.

Hi gorgeous Teresa, oh your trip to Puerto Rico sounded fabulous.. it is wonderful to be surrounded by such energy and I, for one, ADORE dancing. I always have and when I had jobs I didn't enjoy I always put on my favourite music before I left for work and danced around my living room. It never failed to make me feel better.

Re your gorgeous Ty, oh honey I can only imagine how it feels to see him suffering this way for the second time. It breaks my heart for you and I know how hard it will be for you to leave him each time. His mother sounds like a wonderful woman, understanding how you feel about leaving him. Teresa honey, every single tiny ounce of my extra strength and love is heading it's way to you across the oceans. I admire you beyond words. Let yourself cry whenever you need to, it's nature's way of taking care of our souls... Lots of love, hugs and smiles....

Hello! Sounds as though you had a wonderful time in Puerto Rico! I hope that one of these days I am blessed enough to attend one of those amazing events! I am sorry to hear that Ty is having such a difficult time. My brother in law is suffering with Leukemia for the second time in five years. It is such a helpless feeling to know that there is nothing that I can do to relieve the pain that he is in. I pray that Ty will continue to fight and that God will give you the strength to endure during this time. You have a wonderful support system, but I know that it is still difficult to leave on your trips. I will continue to keep your family in prayer.

Blessings and prayers to you for strength and peace, and that Ty is comfortable. Can't wait to see you on TV tomorrow!

Been thinking of you so much. My father in law is battling stage 4 inorperable pancreatic cancer and my mom was just diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. I also lost my dad to leukemia. cancer is so HARD and to watch as your loved ones waste away is the worst. I am thinking of you both and praying!! You are so amazing to be able to work through all of this and keep a gorgeous smile on your face. I am truly inspired by you and the way you are handling all of this with such grace. I look up to you and strive to be like you. May God continue to bless you and your family!!! xoxo
