Randoms & Accomplishments!

I have been busy this past week tying up a few things before heading back to work next week... sigh... 4 weeks is wonderful... but I'm a bit nervous as I go back to work for one week before starting a new job... the new job is temporary which I am quite happy with as it allows me to try something completely different...  really a win-win for me and for that I am excited...

I thought I would share something from Treasured Memories that I cannot wait to use... These gals are so smart for putting these together... I picked out two (of which one I decided to give away), they were not even on the shelf yet and KC let me take ... but every time I walked past the display I drooled and wanted more... Check this out!

Little bits of ephemera... be still my heart... but beware... the kits do have some odd names...

Another little purchase I made were these little Bo Bunny stamps that are perfect for Mail Art...

I have been seriously busy making these...

Then I also sent off this...

I am currently not registered in any classes... STOP THE PRESSES!!... I know, crazy isn't it? I think I need a mental break though... really with everything I did the past four weeks I'm shocked I'm even still standing... (okay well, right now I'm sitting :)

I thought I would look back to see what I have accomplished in the last 4 weeks:
  • I posted 21  24 times
  • I did WITL... AND completed the album!!
  • I made 20 hybrid invites and posted a tutorial
  • I participated in Storytelling Sunday
  • I completed 2 of the 4 weeks of "Explore", a class with Shimelle
  • I made one three layouts here, here, and here
  • I watched 3 of the 5 days of videos for "Creative Color" class with Christy Tomlinson, and made one canvas
  • I made 13 cards (see above) plus one - here
  • I managed to clean up my blog a bit and post another Mail Art Exchange
  • AND... I finally read 200 more pages of my "Pillars of the Earth" book see #8 from this post!  Now I cannot put it down... thanks to my niece who told me there are a few dry spots and you just need to get through them... so thanks Torrie for the encouragement!
  • Not to mention all the fun family time I've had, I also managed to get in a crop night at Treasured Memories (hopefully I can make a layout about that soon), as well as spending some quality time outside enjoying summer!!
And now... I'm off to do housework... there never seems to be an end to that... vacation or not :)

I hope your weekend is wonderful!

  10. You have had a wonderfully creative break! Best of luck with the new job Ginger x

  11. Wow you've definitely been busy. Congrats on getting through some of those dry spots. It seemed like it took me forever to get that book read. :) Love the look of the cards. Good luck with the new job.
