Here's what i've been up to...


Happy Birthday

3x3 cards

Baby girl card

Thank you cards

Thinking of you

Happy Birthday

and here's where I have been hanging out. This is my dining room table. What started out as a small project morphed into an even bigger mess. (I have since cleaned up, thankfully) My goal is to make cards in mass quantities rather than one at a time. So far it has worked out well.
I won't show you my painting just yet. I will know this week whether or not i'm accepted.

Oh, I have another blog I am using this blog to record all of my decorating ideas and such.

Me, Myself and I

So while I have been away from my "blog journal" I have been working on taking care of ME.

Sometimes you don't realize how crazy things are around you until you're in "the thick of it". My life has been like that the last few months but I have also been working on a little ME time.

I have started to go to the gym twice a week--Yoga is SO good for you
I have been making things (crafty things) in the evenings. Usually while catching up on our favorite recorded television shows and baking J a bunch of oatmeal raisin cookies.
I submitted my first painting in an art show (something I have NEVER done before, and if I am rejected, it will be OK)
I try really (really, really) hard to not check my Blackberry every five minutes during the day and on the weekends. I never realized how stressful having this little device can make a person.
Sadly, I had to turn down some interior design work because there was no way I could fit a complete house overhaul with my current schedule. I have a hard time saying no, but it just wasn't going to happen.

I'm feeling good!
