Every since vacation I haven't been able to get back into the swing of blogging. Of course life is busier but that's no excuse because I have found time for other "fun" things I enjoy. Which is truthfully why I haven't been blogging.I do at home daycare and have recently added two more daycare children to the mix. One a newborn and the other a toddler. The toddler refuses to nap on an everyday basis. So there went my own private time, that I relish. My own kids in school and daycare kids napping would give me a blissful 2 hours to spend doing whatever I choose that particular day.
Also I got a cricut, NEED I say more? www.cricut.com it is the best thing ever for scrapbooking and journaling. I love it. So lot's of time spent on ebay looking/bidding on auctions for the wonderful cartridges to go with my cricut. It's so much fun.
Then I began a really exciting class at BigPictures.com . I joined in the big pictures festival. It was really fun and made me spend the 30 - 6o mins daily to participate.The title of the book we created was "Words to live by". Each day a new teacher,there were 12 that participated. That day the selected teacher would give a new word. Then I or the classmate would create a scrapbook layout cooresponding to what that particular word meant to them. For instance, LOVE, create a scrapbook page with that word in it and then you would upload it to the classroom gallery for all others to see. Each day sponsers would giveaway a prize for the one that was selected the winner. It was a lot of fun. I enjoyed so much and it really made me prioritize my time to sit and create and accomplish some crafty goodness.
When it ended after the 12 days I was looking for something to do next. I like the whole checking in and making myself be accountable to be creative. I want to but some days it's so easy to push it aside because other things come up and I don't have the chance to do it.
I was searching around the internet and browsing other websites for different kids of classes. Looking for a new one .I very excited found this website..www.paperrelics.com that is where I found my next class ! It's on lettering ! It begins today.
