I can’t even believe that it has been a whole month since I last posted. I had to buckle down & set my priorities. I have only learned these last 12-24 months that setting priorities is very important, because time is racing by. I can just guarantee that most of it IS attributed to getting older. I am not a spring chicken, but let’s just say, juggling so many balls in the air with high school kids, and trying to craft in your mid 50’s IS getting more challenging. I have been traveling so much lately so trying to craft and make things is REALLY hard to do when you aren’t at home. I craft in my RV, but trying to cram a Sizzix Vagabond in your suitcase is getting really hard. I travel in the last 30 days to Southern Calif, Salt Lake City, UT, New Jersey, New York City, Atlantic City, and leaving tomorrow for Austin, TX. I have had soccer games, graduations, birthday celebrations and even a Vikette Dance Reunion, hence – my travels tomorrow for Austin, TX. I graduated from Lanier High School, and we are celebrating the most magnificent Director Mrs. Gayla King that trained, guided, and most of all – taught us about TEAM, relationships, and faith. I will always remember before and sometimes after EVERY performance that we would pray and hold hands in the most loving way. It will be a bond forever and it truly helped develop my appreciation for friendships that has shaped my life forever.
Since Monday, I have had the pleasure of babysitting two 4 yr old grandkids 24/7 as my oldest son and his family traveled to Calif with his older kids to Universal Studios. My husband commutes to Tucson, AZ but this week he had to work from home. The first day we mainly tried to teach these busy little kids NOT to go into the office where “paw paw” is working. YiYA! it was so hard. I am so tired, and being a die hard “forensic file” show watcher, let’s just say “yawma” didn’t watch TV at all this week. I leave tomorrow, and “paw paw” is going to be busy but good thing he has Friday’s off! And my “Hiding in the Craft Room” Challenge is due tomorrow. I could barely finish. Not too mentioned it was SO hot here in Arizona. Temperature in the 105-107 degrees ALL week, even 8pm at night! So the only time I could work on it was late at night.

I did get it done, and now I am finally able to pack my suitcase and crafting supplies. I am so looking forward to sharing crafting, card marking and scrapbooking with my two sister in Austin, TX. The icing on the cake is getting to spend a week with our mama, Alice and eat the most amazing mexican food in the world. She is our inspiration, strong, witty, AND spicy mother – BUT FUN to hang out with!!!
Got to run, it’s getting late and I am scrambling around trying to stuff more and more crafting crap in my suit
