So... Every time I've really sat and tried to blog, I've been distracted or just bogged down in a lack of "mojo". It's seriously been since May 1st. That's far too long!! I haven't totally stopped making things, but just haven't had the desire to actually record or share anything at all. Super lame on my part.
A couple of reasons:
-I just finished my National Boards for Teaching. Although that was due mid-May, and my test was at the end of May...
-I think I need glasses, and every time I seriously go to read or craft, I get a headache... Appt. is scheduled and I'll update everyone with info or a pic of me in glasses?
-I've become a SSAHM... That's Summer Stay At Home Mom. Yup. One is all five-year-old drama, and the other "thinks" she's in the middle of potty training. We're working on that one. Also, I seem to be feeding these creatures at ALL sorts of time. I've become a snack dispenser. Too bad I can't get quarters each time they want something :)
-For having summer off, I seem to be busy most days. There's always something going on. It's kind of nuts.
My goal for the rest of summer is to share something at least three days a week. I do have a few fun things going on in the next few weeks, so there are more than enough projects to share with all of you. To start, here's my card for my lovely friends' daughter, who also turned five.
Spotted and Hearted from the Lawnscaping Challenge blog. I used the Critters Ever After (Lawn Fawn) stamp set with my Spectrum Noir pens. The clouds are from a Fiskars punch that I picked up from Tuesday Morning on the cheap! I used some white embossing powder for the stars, and then added the background using three shades of Distress Inks. The pink paper is Echo Park, and the yellow is American Crafts cardstock. My 5-year-old wanted to make sure it was a My Little Pony look-alike, so asked for a "cutie mark" and then named her "Hearty".
Tomorrow, I'm going to share a few more projects!! I'm glad that I'm back to blogging!!
