Sorry it has been a while since I have posted here – I have been crazy busy with the end of the year happenings for all of my kiddos the past few weeks…. always a busy time of year! And I have also been busy in the workshop, some secrets I can’t reveal yet, but one I can tell you is that I have been cleaning out a lot and have 2 big boxes of “stuff” ready to sell! Hoping to get in some hands that will love it more than I can right now!
I’ve also been back at my scrapbooking – proud to say I completed Meghan’s dance book – up to date! wahoo! And have been chugging away at Abbie’s dance book. This summer I really want to get things caught up on all the books – Meg is only 5 months in hers, Abbie about 2 and a half, and Brendan is about 4. Since they are now almost 5, 7 and 9, I think it is time to crack at them!
Now, on to a card I have in my pile to share…. yep, I said pile! I have been cracking into a lot of new stamp sets and having fun coloring and blending. I love the look of the colored pencils blended with Gamsol and it is SO relaxing to me! I have also found that I can take my pencils and some stamped images and color away while the girls are at gymnastics, Brendan is fencing, I’m waiting in the car, etc. – handy (and productive!) to have something to do! Only problem I have found is that the other adults around me look at me like I am nutso – but I am used to that! hee hee!
Enjoy the sunshine and I promise to be better at posting now that school is almost over!
