a new week…the sun is shinning, birds are chirping(both start to dang early in the morning if I’m being honest) I should be raring to go, but instead I’m feeling icky and really really warm. hmm could it be the flu I’ve so carefully avoided all winter has snuck up on me now? I suppose only time will tell. In the meantime I’m going to try to go through the regular routine
like mamma always says “Fake it til’ you make it‘. Ok, so maybe my mom doesn’t say that but surely someone’s did and that was one smart mamma.
It was a great weekend, I spent Saturday scrapping with the most talented group of crafters, seriously the list of design teams, pubs and accolades for this group is probably a mile long. So, so glad I stepped out of my sheltered box and went to a similar group oh those many years ago. The group continues to grow and change, but the talent never stops. Check out the amazing Liz Qualman’s blog for a better recap and photos.
I came home with 3 finished layouts and once I get them photographed and posted there will be no doubt who I was sitting next to and what can I say, some of her style rubbed of on me, as it does every time we’re together.
Yesterday was a chore day, which I decided to pretty much ignore in favor of sitting on the porch and reading an entertaining book, Bulletproof Mascara, about a clandestine organization determined to make to world a better place for women around the world under cover of a cosmetics company. I’ll never think of Mary Kay makeup in the same way again.
Speaking of reading that brings me to the layout for the day, you didn’t think I’d have you read all this and not have something crafty to share, did you? Ok maybe you did since I do have a history of rambling, but not this time.
Love this picture of my nephew Connor ‘reading’ , a great reminder that a love for reading starts at a young age.
What was the last book you read? Feel free to share even the cheesiest of romances, because well, I’ve probably read them too, unless they’re historical or involve vampires, I just can’t go there with you, but I won’t judge, I promise. How could I, I just read something called Bulletproof Mascara.
