Sorry I haven't posted

I didn't realize that it had been 6 months since the last time I posted.  I  have no excuse other than I have just not taken the time out of the day to update here.  You know how life can get in the way of the best of intentions.   I have been super busy at work, for which I am very grateful.  Then with the holidays coming upon us before we will know it, I thought I better get a small update on here.
The wedding went off without a hitch in October and it was awesome having the whole family in for a visit.  My son was here from Wisconsin and my Step-daughter and granddaughter were here from Texas.  It was the first time since my husband and I have been married that we have had all four kids in the same place at the same time.  It was great and of course, we had some family pictures taken along with the wedding pictures.  And we had my husband's Sister and brother in law visiting from North Dakota as well.
I have been attending a few crops here and there, and also taking in a few classes along the way.  I did the 12 Tags of Christmas with Dana Edwards, and that was AWESOME!!  I even sold a couple of my tags to a friend at work.  And I have been keeping up with my Scrapbook Club once a month.  We just had our final night of the year and it was a blast as usual. I have made all my handmade cards (80 of them) and got them all sent out.  Of course, there were a few that I missed and will have to make a few more, but that happens every year.  Now I need to get some gift tags made for the presents under the tree.

I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

It's almost July!!

Okay, so it is almost July and I haven't posted in months!  I have no excuse other than I have been so busy that I haven't stopped long enough to do it!  With working again, planning the October wedding and other life drama, I just haven't actually taken the time to post.  Sorry!!

I have been working on designing/printing the invitations for my step-daughters wedding coming up in mid-October.  Next on the list is making the favors....oh, about 100 of them!!  I think I have come up with a design that the bride and groom like.  Now I just need to get the candies for the inside and get to making them. It's a lot of work, but I am more than happy to do it for them.  I have already made/sent out the Save the date cards.  Those turned out great if I must say so myself.  Once I get permission from the bride and groom to post their picture, I will post a picture of the card.

I am hoping to get caught up on downloading pictures from my camera to the computer and can get some pictures uploaded here.  That is #1 on my things to get done over the Independence Day holiday.  I am one of the few in our office that is actually working every day next week except for Wednesday.  So that is my day to get these things done.  Be on the lookout for another post soon!

Happy 4th!!

It's been a long time since my last post.

I didn't realize how long it has been since I last posted. I haven't been crafting much lately. Since starting my new job back in November, I have been mentally exhausted when I got home from work. Our company just merged with another, larger company. Just when I was getting the hang of the computer systems and the jargon used, they changed it on me. And I will be working in both systems for at least the next 4 months. It's a lot of work, but I am loving it. I am very lucky to have found a great job in this economy and I thank God that I did.

I went to a book binding class today and learned a new technique. I can wait to make another one of these books. I attend a scrapbook club with my friend Dana once a month and that was last Friday. That's the most crafting I have done in 3 months. Since I am working so much, I have stepped down from the design team for the Paper Vineyard scrapbook store. I wasn't able to give it 100 percent of my attention and I didn't think that was fair to the rest of the design team. Please continue to check out the blog for their designs.

Talk to all soon. I will try and get some crafting done and post pictures again soon. I hope everyone has a great week.

Thank you Card

Hello Everyone,

Sorry I have been MIA for a while, but have been extremely busy working at my new job. I love it and am glad to have found work with such a wonderful company.

This week the challange at Paper Vineyard was to use a Thank You stamp from Impression Obsession. I also used paper from the Graphic 45 Tropical Traveloque line, Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Die and Tea Dye Distress Stain, Versamark Ink and clear embossing powder.
Hope you like it. If you are in the area, stop in to Paper Vineyard to check out the store. They are always getting new things in. See you soon!
