i think i'll look back over the past few weeks and the blur of what life has been like, and wonder what happened! it may even happen while i'm on the plane this morning. it's been a whirlwind for sure. i am looking at my calendar for next week, and it looks so empty comparatively. not complaining...about the busy-ness or lack. i guess there will always be times when things are spinning busy, and times when it's calm. and it's all good. it is gratifying to think about all the projects i've done in the past days...and to realize how fortunate i am to be doing what i love to do. so here are a few more projects-
here are a few i did for fancy pants:
when i opened the box with the new products from fancy pants, i was immediately inspired and couldn't wait to use them. such great stuff! thanks jodi!
and here is a project that i did for the fiskars booth-
i finally got this one to load! i covered a card box with my beloved black wool (which i have been hoarding) and then used the new fiskars punches for the flowers and an old sherbet dish for the base. does anyone have a good source for wool? i'd love to not have to hoard what i have so much.
no harper bday photos. we went to payton's tball game last night and by the time we had dinner after the game, the kids were overtired and we decided to wait to celebrate when i get back. i'm sad that i don't have a single photo from her actual bday. we did have a great evening together...she even fell asleep on my lap, which hadn't happened in a long time.
i can't wait to see friends in chicago! i can't believe that several years ago, i worked a trade show for the first time and didn't really know anyone. now i consider my friends in the scrapbooking industry some of my dearest friends. and i'm looking forward to getting inspired by all the new products and seeing all the cool samples. i'm not jaded at all. i still love seeing everything. i think i may even appreciate it more now. the other thing i look forward to, is good food. eating is a high priority...we're already emailing about reservations for tonight : ) i'm hoping we get to do a little shopping too. it seems a shame to be in a great shopping city and not shop.
i probably won't be posting while i'm in chicago, but i'm sure i'll have a lot to say when i get back. here's a quote to think on, "often people attempt to live their lives backwards; they try to have more things or more money, in order to do more of what they want so that they will be happier. the way it actually works is the reverse. you must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want". margaret young. i so agree.
so have a great week/weekend, (i'll miss our interaction) and God bless!
