Over the Years

Good Morning! What a wonderful feeling it was to sit down and craft last night. It has been forever mostly because of school and the kids but also because my craft desk is a mess. LOL! But last night I shoved everything aside and whipped out some crafty supplies and participated in Sketchy Thursdays 1/20/11 sketch.



Those are pictures of my beautiful 13 year old daughter, Nicki! Oh my how she has grown, she will actually be 14 in April. I got a little teary eyed making this LO, just seeing how much she has grown. She will be in high school next year and driving and getting a job in just a few short years. Where has the time gone?

The colorful pattern papers are from Echo Parks Walk in the Park collection. I absolutely LOVE it and can't wait to use it more. It is so bright and colorful and certainly put a smile on my face. The background paper is from Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology collection, which will be included in February's kit. The hanging tag with "2010" on it will also be in the kit. The twine was from November's kit. The Thickers are Bones in Leaf from October's kit. September and October kits are still available.

I also wanted to send out a big apology to all my bloggy friends for not being able to visit your blogs more often over the last month or so. See my laptop crashed just before the end of last semester. I used to be able to sit downstairs with the kids and play on the computer while they played or whatever. Since it crashed, my computer time is so limited since my desktop is in my bedroom with all my craft stuff and I don't like being in there when the kids are awake. 2 reasons, one they like to touch all my crafty supplies and two, I would be upstairs and they would always go downstairs and get in to the food in the kitchen or something they shouldn't be. LOL! I do plan on getting another laptop within the next week or so and should be blog hopping up a storm. :-)

Oohh, don't forget to enter your project by 11:59pm EST tonight for your chance to win February's kit and GDT spot.

Happy Crafting!!

Love your page! I know how you feel about wanting to spend time with your kids! Mine are all grown now and when they come home from college I let everything go and spend time with them! Family is the most important thing:)
