The Merry Widow

Hello my crafty friends! Happy Saturday. It will probably end up being clean and organize house day for me because school starts on Monday.

I finally figured out why I am so stressed and overwhelmed about school. It's because I have no more chances to complete school. I have to pass and understand what I am doing. I can't drop a class, I can't afford a bad grade and I am not 18yrs old again. I have responsibility, my kids and my house. First and foremost they come first and with kids, ya just never know if something unexpected will come up. When I was 18 my main responsibility would have been school and working. Easy peasy, I could have done that with no problems. Now I have myself to worry about and 4 others. I worry, will I have enough time in the day to get things done. AND I have to do well. In less than one year from now I WILL be employed. I HAVE to be employed. Within the next year I have to complete school, organize my house, pack, find a new place for my family to live (in a new state), find a job, and move my family across the country. On top of that, find a safe and friendly place for my kids to go to daycare after we move and both Tony and I are working. I am a wreck about having to put my kids in daycare!!! I have to do ALL of this while keeping my sanity! LOL!!

Phew, I feel better now that I got that off my chest. LOL! Now for the good stuff, today's LO! It was created by Debbie using Artful Delight's August monthly kit.

Isn't it gorgeous? WOW!!! I love it. For more details about this LO please visit Debbie's blog.

I wanted to mention one thing before I go, September monthly kit reveal will more than likely be a little late this month. We chose to go with a SUPER new collection for September and they are just starting to ship now. So I just don't expect to have it all by the 25th. I will more than certainly be able to ship on time (the 1st) so that shouldn't be delayed. Just a little hint, think fall. I am really excited about this months kit because Debbie and I (mostly Debbie) have a special treat to add to the kit. Oooh lala!! :-)

Well that's all for today, don't forget to get crafty and enter this month's sketch challenge. It ends August 23rd. :-)

Leeanne, just think, only one more year of super hard work. You've made it this far and you have done exceedingly well. You have accomplished so much already!

I am in awe of Debbie's LO. The blues are perfect, the image is especially eye-catching with her placement and uses of varied patterned papers and embellishments.
