BURIED ALIVE

I know it seems that I have fallen off the face of the earth...but I haven't. And I haven't forgotten that I need to make a video and post it, but I feel like I am buried alive with school. This semester has been so much more time consuming than last semester. I will be really glad when summer break comes around. Oh how I need summer break!

I would tell you all of the other things that have been going on in my life, but school and family seem to be pretty much it. Both of my little ones are currently playing baseball. That means we are out at the baseball field two nights a week and on Saturday mornings. Both of them play on Wednesday nights, which means we spend the WHOLE night out there. Last week we were there from 5:00 to 9:00.

This weekend our church has a special speaker and we are having special services and teaching sessions. Tonight, service starts at 7:00. Both my husband and I are on the Praise and Worship Team, so we have a special training session tomorrow at 1:00. Then we have service Sunday morning, as usual, and another service on Sunday night! Whew! I am getting exhausted just thinking about the weekend ahead.

Sometime between my son's baseball game in the morning, our music team training, and studying, I also have to find time to finish my visual aid for a presentation I have to do for school next week. At least that is kind of crafty. I always use school projects as an opportunity to "get my craft on."

Sometimes, I look back on my week and think, "I really don't know how I got that all done." But it seems I am keeping my head above water...but just barely!

So, if you feel like I am flaking out on my blog, I am not! I am just trying to survive this very busy time of my life. Please forgive me! Continue to follow my blog. I will be back with a project very soon. All of the "busy-ness" of my life seems to hinder my creativity. I have some very new Stampin Up products on my desk just dying to be used!

Have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy your day. And now I am off to figure out how to feed my kids before church tonight!

Boutique Card

My 30th birthday was March 23rd and I needed some thank you notes for the wonderful gifts that I received, so I set out to make a card that was "all me". I chose to use some of my favorite things, which includes some Zebra paper that I found on clearance, some over the top rhinestones, and a little bit of pink. I also used a "boutique" bow, which I show you how to make in this video.

I hope you enjoy this video...and I hope you see my personality in this card. I don't think I've ever made a card that was more "me".

Thanks for watching! Enjoy your day!
