Happy Friday! Happy Friday indeed!!

I have not gotten anything accomplished today and I have soooo much to do! I am working on not getting stressed about it though!

My boys are off today getting hair cuts, glasses adjusted and such! I have been sitting in front of my computer all day... it is Paper Crafts acceptance email day! It is always a load of fun but I never get anything done! I didn't mean to rhyme just then! :) I have decided that I am going to go do a little shopping! Found a good sale on some shorts for my man!

Before I left... I wanted to post a card that I made a while ago. I submitted it 2xs and it hasn't gotten picked so it is time to share it here on the blog!

I have to admit that for the longest time... I wasn't a huge fan of rubber stamps. I have always said that I am rubber stamp challenged. I have a hard time getting the images stamped straight onto my cardstock. I guess if I wasn't so CAS... it wouldn't be such a huge deal. Anywho... since I have discovered the art of using markers on your rubber stamps... I am a HUGE fan! I look for images that I can color up in different colors! I think that is why I love Unity so much! So many possibilities with their stamps! I have become very picky about what stamps I buy! Which is great on the wallet! :) Maybe one day ... just for fun... I will go through my thought process when I am looking at stamps to purchase! :)

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Lots O' Random

Happy Thursday!

My mom and dad took my little man for a few hours today. We met them to do a little shopping and to have lunch. Them taking him was a surprise to me so I am going to try and make good use of my time while he is gone. I have a TON of laundry to put up and/or iron. Fun Fun!

Anyway... I wanted to get a post up real quick too! I hate that I haven't posted much the past month! Carver has started soccer games/practice. This is his first year playing and Michael is helping to coach the team. I started learning to coupon a little over a month ago. While I don't intend to do 'extreme' couponing... it is still VERY time consuming!!! A lot more than I thought it would be but it is also addictive. I guess that is why I spend a lot of time on it! I like saving that money at check out!

I have been keeping busy with my DT assignments and Paper Crafts calls. I haven't had time to make anything just to post on my blog. At some point... I would love to get back to that but I haven't been able to yet. I keep telling myself that when Carver starts back to school this fall that things will be better. I will have 3 days to work on cleaning, laundry, couponing, errands, etc. I have not once regretted keeping Carver out of school (mothers day out) this year but as time has gone on... I think him going back is going to be a good thing... for both of us. I hope it will help me to be a better mommy. I hope I will be able to just play more with him when he is home because everything else that 'has' to be done... will be done. Or at least I will know the next time that I can get them done! The answer to that at this point is NEVER!! :) I think Carver needs to have a little time away from me as well! I will miss him but I hope it will help us to get along better! :)

We are also planning a trip with my parents that is coming up before too long! I will tell more about that when we return. I don't really like to post stuff like that for all to see! :) Just know that until we leave and get back... my posting, etc.. may still be a little here and a little there!

Okay... so .. the projects that I am posting today are projects that I made for the PSA Stamp Camp blog. I am also throwing in a different version of the Rosetta Anniversary card that I made for my aunt and uncle for their anniversary last month! The pictures are not the best. Since the time change I have really struggled with getting good natural lighting pictures. HOWEVER... I am thrilled to report that I think I have figured it out! The time of day to take them and my camera settings! I think!! I was really pleased with the pics I took for my last PC submissions. We shall see! :)

I am not going to list supplies because I have rambled on enough and I really need to get to that laundry. You can go here and here to see the supply lists on the PSA Stamp Camp blog!

Thanks as always for visiting! Love you guys! :)

Paper Crafts Card Creations Publication

Wow... long time no post, right? It has been a month today!

Nothing huge going on around here these days but I have been pretty busy! I hope to post again tomorrow and I will give you my list of excuses as to why it has been so long. :) It is really late... or early depending on how you look at it and I am ready for bed!

In the meantime... I thought it was time to get my birthday post off the top of my blog. So... today I am posting a picture of the current Paper Crafts issue... Card Creations Vol. 9. The card at the very bottom is mine! This is my first cover card so I am very excited! :)

I hope all is well with you (if there is still anyone reading my blog)! I apologize for going a month without posting. I don't think I have gone that long without posting since I started my blog!

Thanks so much for visiting! 

I am not sure what is up with my signature crowding the text! Gonna have to fix that!!!
