Embellish Magazine Paper Piecing Color Challenge

Happy Monday!

I took some time over the weekend to make a card for the current Embellish challenge! It felt good! I have to remember to do that more often!

I have cleaned out my email inboxes and I hope to start today on getting caught up on my google reader. I am needing some inspiration and I always find it when I take time to visit all of you!

Hope your weekend was fab! We had a good weekend! It went by entirely too fast but they usually do!

I wanted to share a quick story real quick just in case my idea of a scrapbook page never comes to fruition!

On Sunday morning, Michael was in the shower, I was still trying to sneak in a minute more of sleep and Carver was in our bed watching cartoons. I was in that state of not asleep but not awake. I am not sure what cartoon Carver was watching but apparently they were talking about best friends. Carver reached over and grabbed my arm with his little sweet hands and said (to the tv) "my mommy is my best friend"! How sweet is that? He melts my heart everyday! I love him!

Speaking of things that I love! I LOVE my new computer! So much so that I am hoping I will enjoy being on it a little more than I have lately! The screen is big... I love how the keys feel when I type on them.... it is fast.. ! This is my first Mac but I think that I have used Michaels enough ( to check my email on trips, etc) that I am more comfortable with it than I thought I would be!

Anyway.... that's all for me! Hope you all have a great day! :) Thanks for checking in!

Peace and Love!
