Wow! I just realized today that I let a month pass before posting something on my blog...I guess I didn't even realize that I had been away from my blog for that long. I don't know about how anyone else feels but I feel like everytime I blink it's a new month or a new season or a new year...time seems to be going by faster and faster.
I went to Florida with my whole family to see the in-laws. It turned out to be a really nice family reunion and one that was way overdue and needed. Florida's weather can be pretty unpredictable though and I think next time we go, we will go in April when we can enjoy the real Florida weather.
Since I am busy taking my kids to all of their activities and paper crafting is not such a portable friendly craft, I have taken up an additional hobby... crochet! and I have crochet three scarves in two months and I will be finishing my fourth one this week. Next will be a really nice throw/blanket for our couch.
I have also given myself time to focus on my health and have gone to the gym on a regular basis...in just two weeks, I have seen and felt tremendous changes...all good...and I am going to keep at this even though it means less time for crafting.
While I have not taken any photos of my scarves yet, I did manage to take a photo of my latest layout that I finished last week. It had been two weeks since I had a chance to go in my studio and stamp and I was so happy to finally have some time to do it.
