Fun Little Craft

Hi all, just a quick little post to show you what I've been up to.

Thank goodness for deadlines! Seriously?! If it weren't for deadlines I don't think I would get any crafting done lately. This sweet little box was my latest craft for the "More Paper than Shoes" forum. It was super fun to make and now I feel like I've accomplished something. Hope over to the blog by clicking on the icon to the right and see what all of the other artists have been up to.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I'm still here!

I'm still here. We've been battling pneumonia. Ugh!! Don't worry, we're making it.
School finally started for my oldest! Yeah that means they are all back in school. It's so funny how much I want summer to start and then how relieved I am when it starts back up.
I'm a bit sad this year though.

Yesterday was her last first day of school. boo hoo!! (except for college but that's different, you know what I mean.) This one, she's quite a character! This will be such a stressful year for her but sooooo exciting too. She's got one more SAT test, and early application to NYU (cross your fingers) 3 Ap classes and an honors class to boot. But it will be fun too. She goes to a fabulous school and will have tons of fun doing cool senior activities.

These are her all time favorite shoes. (boy have they had it!) She even won an award in Cheer in her freshman year for "sparkliest shoes" !! Even though she wasn't supposed to wear them during cheer. LOL

She finally got to travel this summer. She went to NY, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Boston, and Connecticut on college tours. Lucky!! She got to stay in a fabulous hotel in Times Square and see "Rock of Ages" on Broadway, they even stayed after the show to take a picture with Constantine (from American Idol). She came home with a shirt that says "Hooray for boobies"

O.K, now that they are all back in school I will be able to visit all of the wonderful blogs I follow again. Yeah!!! I can't wait.

be back soon. have a lovely week

Petite Bead Box Swap Reveal!!

It's finally here!!
Check out all of the other reveals by clicking on the picture below. (The actual reveal is tomorrow, I posted a little early. Enjoy!!)
It's time to reveal all of the yumminess that I received from my fabulous partners in the "Petite Bead Box Swap" hosted by the fabulous Cassandra Van Curen from myartfuladventures.

Look at these fabulous boxes. WOW!!! What details!!My first partner Sarah from mysocalledjunkylife
sent me this super generous and wonderful assortment of beautiful beads.
My second partner Terri Gordon sent me this fabulous box. Look at the shell details on top. She sells them in her shop (if there are any left!!) I love all the beads but especially the little hand painted heart charm. My third partner was Karen from somedaysarediamonds she sent me this wonderful assortment. Yeah!! I am so grateful to all of my wonderful partners. I can't wait to get started creating.

Sorry I've been missing for awhile. School started on Wednesday but my boys couldn't go, one of them had pneumonia (ugh) and the other one was on the verge. They are doing much better now. Thank goodness!! That was super scary. So anyway, they'll be back in school on Monday and then........... let the crafting begin. LOL
