Just a quick Hi!
I didn't have time to "play" today. The girls and I really needed some Mom and Me time, so we just hung around the house together and did whatever tickled our fancy (usually Mom following their lead.) I'd been feeling guilty lately about spending too much time with my scrapbooking and stamping, so slowing down today was a good thing. Balance- such a simple word but, oh so, difficult to achieve. When I get some sort of creative outlet, I'm really so much better as a mother. It's just making sure I'm not going overboard with it- ya know what I mean. One nice thing-my 9 year-old-daughter, Mary Elizabeth, loves to "play" and be creative along side of me and those times are so very special. Hopefully, Rachel, age 3, will develop a love for such things, too (she already loves to rummage through my supplies and is curiously very careful with them, otherwise "bull in a china shop," describes her.) Once the kiddies and my husband went to bed, I had to cut CS for the SU Retirement Party that my upline, Yazmin, and I are having tomorrow evening. We are offering a total of 4 make-n-takes (developed 1 card and 1 other item each.) Since several folks that read my blog will be there tomorrow evening, I don't want to show those projects and spoil their surprise. I will upload those pics tomorrow evening. Not wanting to leave you folks empty handed, I wanted to share an awesome tutorial that I found on Trudee's blog "Follow your Bliss" for tying a perfect knot each time. Although Trudee didn't record this tutorial herself, she is an extremely talented gal and if you have not before, please treat yourself to a visit on her blog. Well, so much for a quick Hi! Better run to bed. Tomorrow poses a full and exhausting day. Take care!
