MIA Again!

Sorry I have been MIA again!  Things have been crazy for me at my daytime job and I have been working a lot of extra hours. I thought that when I only had one job that I would have a TON of spare time on my hands.  Boy was I wrong!  That just opened the door for more challenges and exciting things to be able to happen at my day job.  Everyone that knows me, knows that I'm always up for a challenge! 

I have been able to paper craft a little bit more.  I have joined a card club that has 17 members.  We meet once a month and swap our cards.  There is a designated theme for each month and we make X# of the same cards (one for every member able to attend).  This month's meeting was my initial meeting.  It was a blast.  I'm thankful that my friend, Russell thought of me when a position came open and let me tag along with him!  There are so many talented members of the group and I can't wait to learn new techniques and share everyone's creativity! 

And I used my Cricut Imagine for the first time to make my cards for this month--whoo hoo!  I love the fact I can print paper at the touch of a button!!!

This weekend, my husband and I are going to Cincinnati for a weekend getaway (going to go see the Reds Friday night and then piddle around Saturday and Sunday!).

Next weekend, I get to take a Gamasol blending technique class on Friday night and then a card class from the wonderful, Sarah Spencer, CTMH consultant. 

August 6th, my friend Brittani and I are holding another Crop for a Cause charity scrapbook event.  The chosen charity is Meadowstone Therapeutic Riding Facility located in Franklin, IN.  It is a horse riding center that specializes in helping children and adults with developmental disabilities.  It is owned by a retired husband and wife team that relies soley on donations to stay in business!! We have 6 more spots to fill.  If we can do that, we will have 40 people.  We are so excited!!!

Hopefully I can post more frequently!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed things slow down a bit so that I can fuel my passion--Paper crafting!!!!!

Have a great day!!!
