The GOOD stuff

Hey, sorry for being gone so long, but man o man it was a rough 8 months or so. I am finally out of the house and all moved, but the paper work of divorce is still waiting. Hate that! I got most things I wanted, except my sweet doggies, but life goes on... right? Sad about that, but so glad to be moving on.

So to catch you all up on the GOOD stuff...

I have been spending my time with an old friend, who after almost two decades, has been a soft spot to land emotionally. He is a rock and my best friend. I am one lucky chica to have him around on the tough days ad an even luckier one to have him one the good days, too!!

My kiddo is about to enter her Junior year in high school, and with the fall also comes another season of HS football games and band stuff, along with the FFA and Ag commitments of a goat.. and probably soon to be pig, as well!! I am gonna be a busy Mama! As for the rest of the fam, well they are about the same... mostly sweet with a few nuts!

Creatively, I hit a wall at the end of last year. I was so emotionally frustrated at home that I couldn't find the peace in creating that I used to... now my peace is back! So, I am slowly getting back to my scrap-habit, and doing pretty well considering over half my stuff is in storage! (WEEP!!!) But, it will be okay, and I can limp along until I am back in a place where I can have it all organized and available at every creative whim.

I am back in the swing of things with the new term of Design Team-ers over at Scrapville (my FAVE DFW LSS) and will be putting up projects along the way. I have done a bunch of technique video cruising recently, and have some cool ideas I will share once they are tried and true. Along with DT, I committed to teaching some classes at Scrapville again and can't wait for the first two! Card class is on the 20th from 2-4 and then that night from 5-7 I am hosting a Technique crop with another DT'er Jenn from 5-7. The card class has a variety of using your pp for creating embellies and in ways not at the front of everyone's brain. The technique crop will have a handful of product demos where you walk away with small embellies or items where you have learned to use a product/technique from 5-7 and then its a full-on crop til midnight... maybe later if Lindy gets Amp'ed up!!!

The September class calendar is not out yet, but I can tell you that some of the projects I have seen from the DT and Scrapville ladies are AWESOME-TASTIC! Make sure if you are local that you check it out! Also, if you want/need specific techniques or types of classes that we listen.. so shoot me a comment and we will get right on that!

I have a few projects in the works and will try to get pics and a how to up later this week... but, for now, find me and Scrapville on facebook and check out the home page at Scrapville online to see their new product (they will ship it to you, just call)!

I am glad to be back in blog-land! Have a great one!
