OH Where does the time go?

Has it really been almost a month since I last posted? Have you deleted my blog from your favorites? Have you considered nominating me for the WORST BLOGGER EVA AWARD? I dont know what it is but I have been extremly tired lately. I have just not had the ENERGY or the want to get on and visit my daily reads, passing my craft studio and opting to lay in bed and watch tv or glue my bum to the sofa in the family room. I hardly ever sit down there, even my kiddos have come down stairs to hang out.

So I teach at my sons High school and sometimes I run into them on campus, I never bother them or approach them to talk. One day I was going to my oldest sons class with him to talk with his teacher and I ran smack into my youngest son and a group of his friends. They were actually standing in front of the the very class I needed to enter. So I moseyed right up to them and started talking. My youngest son wanted to just disappear. At the end of the day when we got in the car to go home our conversation went like this.

son " Mom why would you do that"

Me " What so bad about it"

son " its just bad, its embarrassing"

Me " why is it embarrassing"

son "it just is, I cant explain it"

me " all your friends know I work here, you told them"

son " they forgot you work here"

me " i dont think so, please explain the embarresment"

son " how would you feel if you were having a workshop and I came downstairs in my underware"

Well I had a workshop coming up the following saturday, do you think he did it?

Here are the cards we created, I think I will break them up and that way I will have someything new to share for at least three days.

Also I have several brand new acrylic stamp sets from CTMH that need a good home, make sure you visit on friday for details!

This card uses another new color Creme Brule cardstock and ribbon

This card uses our two new colors, Tulip and Juniper.

All sets used are new sets featured in the new Close to my Heart fall/winter idea book.


Until tomorrow

Saturday workday

For this last week to be a short week it seemed so long and BUSY. I know I said I would post it just didnt happen. So today I work, work on posting some art, posting my SBS links in my side bar and paying them a visit,cleaning up this studio and attempting to create!

I created a new banner tell me what you think of it. Is it to busy? too hard to read? I visioned it looking a little different, I wanted to use fun paper but maybe its to busy. Give me your input and I will sit with it this way for about a week and if I dont like it away it goes.

Bad Blogger

Life, work, kids, dinner, dentist appointments etc. I need a vacation, 1 week on a white sandy beach. I have been terrible with keeping this place updated, I cant believe its been 12 days since I posted ( thats awful ).I am a little embarrased. Iam going to keep this short and sweet, its late and I need to get ready for bed and get some sleep. I PROMISE I will be back tomorrow. SBS sis's Iam sorry I havent visited your blogs ( tomorrow that will be a priority)or posted your blogs in my side bar I will get that done in the next 2 days. So sorry to start off this great adventure with the SBS in such a flakey way. I will do much better.

I added prisma glitter to the candles, top of the cake and the cake stand (to make it look like crystal)
