Getting used to it

Wow, it's been a little while since I've posted...things are very busy in our lives right now...with the start of baseball and softball, I'm not sure where I'm going half the time. We just finished a day FULL of ball and it rained most of it. Bethany came back to the car after a practice in the rain and said, "That was AWESOME"! Not something I would have expressed, but I guess I'm just old now. Ashley only had to play a little in the rain and her coach called it quits. What started out as a full day, actually ended as a part day. All practices ended at least 30 minutes early and the scrimmage was called off tonight (Thank God) 7-9pm is a very late game for all of us to endure, especially after practice from 10-12, 1-3, 3-5! WHAT DID I GET MYSELF INTO???

Creativity has been my mind, just not with scissors and paper. I've managed to make a couple of things, but needed to get them out in a hurry...SOOOO no posting yet.

Looks like it's going to be a GREAT, FAST spring!

A few cards

We've created a few cards this we, I mean Bethany has started her own creative enterprise. This first one is for Daddy. With the guidance of CTMH Originals card designs, she made this card. She chose the color combination Breeze, orange and clover meadow (CTMH) (something I don't think I would have even put together, but it looks GREAT!) and asked to play with my newest toy...the cuttlebug, of course. (I found it cheap at Creative Express.) She stamped it (CTMH Birthday bash, and Papertrey's Mixed Messages) and assembled. Great job...

The second one was inspired by Nicole Heady's blog...simple but pretty! I used the stamp set Star Struck by CTMH.

The last was a sympathy card for a friend of our family who lost her dad. Sweet Flowers Stamp set was of my all-time favorites. I used a cuttlebug embossing folder and Anna Griffin papers. Also it uses Papertrey's Out on a limb stamp set for the greeting. The purples didn't turn out well in the picture, but in person they actually all match.

Snow in March!

Well, we are supposed to get 5-6 inches of the white stuff today/tonight. That is big news in Tennessee! So, guess what we are doing tomorrow? We are sorting and preparing pictures to scrapbook...yeah! I'm excited because I'm behind on my goal, and my scrapbooks and I'm ready to get some things done! The kids are anxious to get their creative juices flowing also, so we are going to come up with something for them as well. So keep a look out for some layouts on Sunday/Monday. Hopefully we'll get something accomplished. We've had a bout of the stomach flu again this week and it seems to be the one thing I can't avoid getting. Generally, I don't get sick with what the kids have, but I can't seem to avoid that one. I'm feeling better, most of the kids are feeling better...we are ready! So check back early in the week and hopefully I'll have something to show off...

crazy times

Isn't it amazing how fast time goes sometimes, and how slow it goes other times? Well, I have a mixture of both going on right now if you can grasp that. On one hand I know the next 3 months are going to go so slow. But at the end of the day, I don't know what happened to my time, or how I somehow skipped over hours of the day. It seems when the kids get home, the next thing I know it's after their bedtime and I'm rushing to read stories and tuck everyone in bed. Then I crash on the couch and don't want to get up until morning. So much for doing all these wonderful things after the kids go to bed. I have made a few new cards, but I have to photograph them and upload them. Maybe sometime this week it will happen between laundry etc...

This morning when we woke up it was cooler than yesterday and drizzling, but not horrible. Tonight when we got home from girl scouts it was snowing again. 2 days ago it was 70 degrees and we were outside playing ball...strange weather lately. The kids have gone from playing in the snow a week ago tomorrow, to playing ball in shorts, to freezing again and hoping for another snow day. I doubt it will happen, but you never know. If it does at least they'll have extra oppotunity to get their chores done! Hee,hee. The chart is still working pretty well and we are into week 2. That's another thing I'd like to decorate! Ahh, well.
