but I have managed to get in some crafting time. I did a page on Mother's Day and it came out gorgeous and I did a couple pages about my son's 8th grade continuation ceremony that just happened this week. Trying to get to those photos and memories before they fade away. I have been utilizing any left over paper from card design projects and creating a scrapbook page using some of the same design concepts or techniques I used in the cards which is cool and makes putting the scrapbook page together pretty easy since I already have a design/concept to go with. I just got a book on success with your craft business. I wanted to see what else I could be doing. I have to get my stuff up on my Zibbet store. I have a few items but I have to get some business cards made up and start marketing my site more. Always a work in progress...

It was nice having a few days away from home in sunny warm CA with my mom and sister but I was blooming with some ideas. Of course, my card magazine came in the mail, new paper is sitting around waiting for me to do something with it and it was a warm day today so being down in the studio was a nice place to be on a warm day. I started off with a sketch from a card magazine and just kept going and going. I made two cards for the replay Project Playground coming up next weekend and a few more cards with the scraps and put together a beautiful scrapbook page. I like to take all my left-overs and see what else I can come up with so I don't have to put too much into the already over-flowing scrap box. I am looking forward to The Angel Company order coming in any day now for more inspiration. New stamps!!! Yeah! I can't resist a sale and you shouldn't either. There's lots of stamps being discontinued and some of them have been favorites of mine for the last couple years. Gotta go crawl into bed now and get some sleep. Tomorrow will be a wonderful day! Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in the world!
