A day late?

Ok, so here I go... it's nearly bedtime for me, but remembered my once a week promise for the blog. Sundays are actually the best day for me to get things done, so I think I'll say as long as I blog before Monday, then I'm on time. Ha!! Not sure if anyone ever reads this even....

I'm planning an Uppercase Living project night, cute things, lots of fun... so we'll see if I can get the email out in the next day or so. Things are so busy with Thanksgiving coming up. I am doing baking for the big day - I'm in charge of desserts and rolls. Not a problem.

Have a great week, everyone!

Weekly Update

Well, here I go. I think I missed my posting last week by a few days, but I'll make up for it this week! We had a busy week, I gave blood for the first time. *gasp* but I made it through! :) I really get kind of panicky with things like that, so I have to say I think I did ok!

We had dinner with my in laws on Wednesday to see them off to Phoenix - and to celebrate my niece Allyson's 2nd birthday a few days early. It is so amazing to see how fast my nieces and nephews grow. Can't wait to get to Salt Lake and meet the niece who's due around Christmas. We're playing it by ear now, because flights that way are expensive when it snows.

Otherwise, that's about it. At the end of the week, maybe I'll post some artwork.

New Goal: Blog once a week!

Here goes nothing! I'm going to blog once a week! Tonight I had a fun Christmas Card workshop that I'm repeating tomorrow with my pal Melanis. We have different styles, which is fun because then folks get a mix of cards they may not have gotten with just one of us. I love to stamp and play, and I feel badly that I haven't shared things on the blog that I've done. It's the taking a photo and posting it thing, but I'll try. Look for more fun things soon!

Long time, no blog.

Well, hasn't it been a while? Today is Evan's last day of Kindergarten Readiness camp. I think he's enjoyed it, although "They're killing me with these letters." Ha! I can't wait to remind him of that in a few years! Things have been busy with us - work has been crazy for me and honestly the time just slips away. Kindergarten starts on August 19, I will post pictures when he starts. I can't believe that this time is here, it seems like just yesterday we were staring at our baby in his crib in awe.

Well, I am HOPING to be creative in the next few days. I am excited that we are going to my grandpa's farm for a few days to see out of town relatives that I haven't seen in at least 10 years. I think the photos from the reunion will be great scrapbook material! (Always plotting, I know!)

Thanks for hanging in there with me through the unposted time. I'm going to try and be better.

Where does the time go?

I can't believe we are at the end of June already! Where does the time go? We had a great time with my stepson last week, went to the Field Museum, where we saw the Pirates exhibit. It was really very interesting and we had some fun together! The time with Anthony always goes by in a flash, and I know Evan is really missing his big brother. We've been working with Evan on some kindergarten preparation, which he is really enjoying - loves to do worksheets and projects! I have my club make up session tonight, looking forward to seeing everyone. My $12 Tuesday workshops so far have been a hit. This weekend I'll be working on the schedule to set up the rest of the summer! K

Mojo Monday Pattern 89

Hooray! After weeks of following the Mojo Monday blog, I can finally post a card I made on time! This card was created using CTMH Back Country papers, and Just Like You stamp set. I am really liking this paper pack.

Evan's Loose Tooth

I can't believe it! My baby has his first loose tooth! I don't think it's coming out any time soon, but it was a little traumatic for mom, he's getting so big!

It's been a while!

I have fallen off my blog for a while, started a FaceBook account to keep up with my sisters in laws, and 40 friends later, I am still checking it nearly every day! HA! I have some great new art to post very soon, working on more tomorrow, so I have some great things going on!

Opening My Blog

Hi all!.

After posting to myself for about a month and a half, I'm opening up to my friends. Those of you who have heard I have a blog, here it is! I know it's not much yet, but I'll be posting more as time goes by. I have some art up my sleeve, so to speak, that will be posted here soon. :)

Have a great week!

Open House THIS Friday!

I am so excited about my open house this Friday. I LOVE the new Idea Book and can't wait to share it with everyone... Of course, I am revamping my craft room right now, and my workshop area looks like a tornado hit it, but things always come together just in time (thanks, Jim!) . I still have some art to create, and snacks to prepare, but hey, it's only Tuesday. If that pesky work didn't get in the way.... :)

Looking forward to sharing with everyone on Friday - and I have the 11-11 crop on Saturday, for National Scrapbooking Day. I am hoping we'll have a bunch of fun!

What a week!

Wow - in one week's time, we've signed Evan up for Kindergarten and watched him turn 5. I have warned the guys that I can't reallly handle much other stress, so we'll see if they lay low for a while! We had a great time celebrating Evan's birthday several times - with his friends, with our family, at preschool, and at Chuck E Cheese with Uncle Kraig. Photos will follow soon!

As I look back, I can hardly believe it's been 5 years since two became three... How blessed we are to have such a kind hearted, sweet boy!

Monday, Monday

Just getting ready for my stamping club tonight. I am so excited about CTMH's new Summer Idea Book, I can't wait to share with everyone! I hope that I have a great turn out to my open house on May 1. I have a great make and take project planned and hope to have some workshops together for folks to take advantage of.

Lucky Day!

I am feeling lucky! My first artwork post to my blog was randomly selected to win an awesome prize from Card Patterns and Scrap My Memories! I am shocked, to say the least. Sweet husband posted the photo for me, I really need to learn how to operate this blog! :) We're planning on a SLOW weekend, which is good. I need to do our taxes, and then I get to play stamping! I love what I do! I just got a brand new CTMH paper pack on Wednesday, Tickled Pink. I am SO excited about it that I started playing that night! In the next day or so I'll post the pictures.

Card Pattern Card

This is my first artwork post. I wanted to try out this stamp set, Bird Basics by CTMH since I got it, but I hadn't gotten around to it. I thought it was perfect for the Card Patterns challenge of the week. All supplies are CTMH.

Snow Day!!

Wow! It's been a while since I've had those words apply to me! I guess with 18+ inches of snow and more to come, it's expected. Evan and I get to stay home with a fire in the fireplace and play all day. I will do some stamping today, and see if I can figure out blogging!
