Copic Class

Good morning!  Hope everyone had a wonderful week!  Mine was great.  I was able to take the day off work from my full-time job yesterday and attend a wonderful Copic Class.  I had already been certified but wanted to take the class again to sharpen my skills to be able to work with one of the other certified ladies at my part-time job to make a class curriculum and teach Copic Classes!  I was able to meet some really wonderful ladies as well as learn a few things!!  I brought home a long list of blogs and websites to check out! 

I haven't had much spare time this week to craft anything but, hopefully I can get some more cards made and posted on Etsy in the next few days!  I am secretly hoping it rains all day so that we are "stuck" inside and I can play in the scrapbook room :-)

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!

Fantastic Friday

It is a beautiful Friday outside! I wish I could take the day off work and spend it enjoying this wonderful weather!  It even got so hot yesterday in the house that we had to shut the windows and turn the air on! The way our house sits, it soaks up the sun all day and there wasn't any breeze blowing through the house.  It was crazy!

I was fortunate to be able to meet up with a wonderful group of friends last Saturday and scrap.  I worked on cards all weekend and mailed some out to family and friends and posted the other on Etsy to hopefully sell!!

My cousin called me last night to tell me that my "niece" was heartbroken.  She had gotten my card yesterday and was so excited about it.  They put it on the dining room table to enjoy and Lauren's little sister Lilly decided to climb on the kitchen chair and get the card.  It ended up turning into 5 cards instead of 1.  I got a tearful thank you voicemail for Lauren telling me that Lilly ripped the card up that she loved.  It was so heart wrenching she was so upset!  So, I think I might have to make a card this weekend to send to her.  They are both so precious to me, I can't have one of them upset (ha ha).

Tonight I'm actually off work and am going to have a dinner "date" with my husband and some friends tonight.  Tomorrow I'm going to go give blood first thing in the morning and then I get to clean the house (which I'm actualy looking forward to).  I'm hoping to get some things boxed up for Goodwill as well as organizing the scrapbook room (hopefully finishing that project).  Mike is going to "play" tomorrow with his friends and help build a box for a hot tub.  He loves building things and playing with the power tools :-)

Sunday we are going to go to Mike's parents and enjoy Easter dinner and then go home and relax and watch a few movies.  Thi sis one of the first weekends in a long time that will have more than a few hours of relaxation--I'm super excited!

I wish everyone a blessed Easter and hopefully I'll be able to post some pics of my cards I've gotten made recently! My goal is to get one image colored a night so that when I do get to put them together, I can make multiple cards to give away or sell!!
