Boy, February was a whirlwind month.... My calendar for March so far LOOKS less booked up, but I do know how that can seem to change in an instant!
Things I am looking forward to that are coming up...
Getting to know my new laptop - we have been talking about getting this for a longggg time. I wanted something I could haul along with me to work on projects and also for nights when it seems we both need the computer at the same time... We can both get what we want.. and I can even snuggle in bed with it if I want! Now I just have to hook up the wireless router and I am good to go...
Unscheduled weekends - As of right now I have one weekend this month that I am scheuled to do something. We will be able to have lazy family weekends and also work on some of our home projects - on of which is our KITCHEN. We have pretty much everything to finish this off and I can end my year and a half of an undone kitchen.
Working with www.creekbankcreations.com - I met the owner Julie last November at the stamp show in Madison and I am going to do a little design work for her - very cool. I am so excited about this! I have done a few projects in the Dirty Dozen gallery on www.splitcoaststampers.com with her products.
Horseback riding for Tacy - We are going through the Project ASTRIDE to get Tacy horseback riding. I am very excited and anxious as to her response to this in all areas. Horseback riding for kids like Tacy and other children with disabilities has been shown to have GREAT benefits. We are working with UCP to fund this... another awesome organization ;) This next month will be getting paperwork in order and orientation and then she begins her classes in April!
This is my last month on the Dirty Dozen Design team on Splitcoast, kind of sad, but I am also ready for it to be done as well. It has truly been an honor to design among some truely talented women. It has also kickstarted me into designing for other venues. Check out the Spring issue of Stamp It! for my first published card :) I have another little something coming up in Birthday Creations (Papercrafts) very soon and then of course with Creek Bank Creations. Very fun stuff. I really love doing all of this and let me tell you the experiences I have had and people I have met and befriended along my way have been incredible!
