Slowly getting back...

Here's a summer shocker...I actually sat down and created something! Well, I had a little help from my 10-year old. These are mini notepads we purchased from Target. They were plain kraft-paper covers (see below) and we embellished them with paper, stickers and rub-ons, which made them easy and fun for my daughter.  We thought we would send them in place of  "thank you" cards for her June birthday party. Yes, I did say June...we're a little slow over here!  Can you believe it took us two months to figure out what to do?  We knew we didn't want to  send a generic "thank you for your gift" card, so we kept waiting until inspiration hit.  Anyway, this is the result and we had a blast.

Hope you all are enjoying your summer.

Summer Time...

Criscunningham_blossom_2  I just want to thank all of you who have emailed me asking where I am and what's going on! So sorry to be out of touch, but this has turned out to be a very busy summer for me.  Between birthdays, weddings, road trips, family visits,  and keeping up with my girls, I haven't had much time to create anything or visit with my online friends (and I miss you all so much!).  I'm going to try to post at least once a week until school starts again in September.  Meanwhile, stay well and enjoy your summer!
