Hello. I know I have been quiet. It has been busy around my house. School ended and I was all ready to spend some time in my craft room. What is the saying....You make plans and God laughs. He was laughing.
My son bought a house in Grand Rapids and moved the last of June. I went up and spent a week with him. It was just so much fun. We were busy but I just enjoyed the time.
I came home and it was time to get busy. My husband was (still is) in the middle of a huge job and didn't have time for paperwork. I usually help out but I had more than usual. Then there was the 4th of July.
I had my routine down. I was going to get some time in the craft room. Then it dawned on me I had two weeks before my son came home for his vacation. That meant I had a lot to do. I was moving his old bedroom and making it my craft room. His new room needed painting. It took forever to get the other room cleaned out but I did it. I painted it red and gray. University of Alabama colors. It came out amazing. I just love it. (I will be posting pictures later.)
The room got finished on Tuesday and he was due Thursday night. I moved all the furniture and got it all set up. But that left a mess in the rest of the house. I spent Thursday moving things into my new craft room. I knew it would not be ready for his visit but I had to get started and organize some of the mess.
We had a great visit. His girlfriend and I even got in my craft room for a little while. I am still moving things around but I am getting there. I updated my challenge list on Sunday and I really want to get a few things done this week.
To that end, I ran across this card, I started and never finished. I thought it would be perfect for several of the Christmas In July challenges. The little girl/elf is from Bugaboo stamps. I had previously cut all of the circles and I just needed to embossing the background and add all of the gems.
I am using it in the following challenges:
AudSentiments - Christmas In July
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Die Cutting Divas - Christmas In July
Crafty Gals - Christmas In July
Well, I am off to fold some clothes and work in the kitchen for a few minutes. Chat with you again soon. Have a great afternoon.
