Well I have had a frantic beginning to my week! I have created 9 LO's this week plus a card! I am officially up to date again! The weight of the world has lifted off my shoulders! I can breathe again! Maybe I can go back to making those adorable flowers again now that I have nothing pressing to do!
Now amidst all the chaos of getting all those projects finished, I totally missed the fact that I have had my 50 000th visitor through my little blog. I was planning to do some lovely RAK but have not yet had the time to put anything together, but come back, now that I am up to date I will put a little something together and take a picture of it! I am thinking I might just have to make some of those lovely flowers to include in it!! I will get there.
This coming week will be filled with creating class notes for Creative Edge, and starting to make up the kits for it as well. I find it hard to believe that it is just over 2 weeks until this event. After months of planning, stressing (still stressing as my Prima order hasnt been shipped to me yet! Eeeek they are aparently sending it on the 28th, which is Saturday for me), Dotting my i's and crossing my t's that I have everything I need to make up the kits! Like discovering that I am one glimmermist colour short! So yet another order needs to be placed to get this little sucker in!! Cant believe I missed it and it was for the class I am teaching! Which is probably why it was an oversight! My poor laser printer will be in overdrive next week printing out all the class notes! Lets hope I do not run out of toner in the colour cartridges during the process!! That would just be my luck at the moment! Kind of like my sewing machine getting a gremlin in it as well and the bobbin spinner not spinning! I swear I have the kiss of death on electrical appliances lately!
We were given a challenge for the Prima DT to see what we could create in 30 minutes. I have decided that I am not so good at this! I failed miserably on my first couple of attempts, usually taking 1-2 hours on the layouts that were supposed to be quick!! Finally I managed to do this within the 30 minute slot!
I really had to try and simplify what I usually do. Had to eliminate a lot of the hand cutting I do as I have discovered that is a very time consuming part of the way I scrap. How sweet is that picture though! I can never imagine getting a photo like that of my brother and I as children. At that age I remember my brother throwing rocks at my head and one of them making good contact with my scull! Not so good rocking up to school with your hair matting together with blood!! So glad my kids seem to play a LOT better together than my brother and I ever did.
Just a quick update today. Dont forget I will get that RAK organised by my next post! Should go off and look through the stash for some lovelies while miss K sleeps! TFL
