It's World Card Making Day...well yesterday was but I didn't get to post my pictures due to a non-stop day and evening! I'm still working on cards today...4 done and more going.
Yesterday I decided to focus on a set theme. My hubby is a Realtor and is constantly needing a card to thank a client. So...I thought that would be the perfect project to work on to get a jump and have some on hand when he asks for one!
Bo Bunny Flutter Butter, Flutter Butter Stripe, Flutter Butter Cut Outs, Cofee Dot Double Dot Cardstock, Sunflower Dot Double Dot Cardstock, Colorbox Chalk Inks, Bo Bunny Brads, K & Company Brad, Stickles, Perfect Pearls
Whew..four done for him...that's a good feeling although I need to make quite alot more as he's been busy! Actually we've been busy. It's not even an accurate description...overwhelmed I think is more appropriate. It's always been a bit busy for us with the three kids but they're not that involved in activities however this year I take that all back. It's nuts. Plus we, Scott and I seem to go non-stop a million directions at a pace we both find exhausting. My friends with older kids told me this is just the start..ahhh!
We also just found out both Connor and Haley need braces with Connor at the imperative end. He's got an issue with a baby tooth that never fell out and a permanent tooth now stuck up in his gums that we didn't know about. Lovely. This is where dental insurance would be helpful...President Obama..remember being self-employed and self-insured does not mean we're wealthy and can afford outrageous insurance premiums..thus why no dental. We need help! So poor Connor will get them on first just as soon as we narrow down an ortho who doesn't need me to sign over my house as a down payment. YIKES! I honestly hated wearing them...but I had a horrible ortho who I swear hated his job and definitely hated me and my small mouth. I think it brought him great pleasure to inflict pain. And worse as I'd go in the morning before school and spend the day with horrible mouth pain and a headache...lovely. I hope today's ortho's are nicer, kinder and gentler for my kiddos!!! The cost is definitely not!
Wow....Time Traveler's Wife...by Audrey Niffenegger. I started this book by a recommendation from Misty...see her link on side. I began right before leaving for ScrapFest. In fact it was hard to stay with it on the plane..noise, interruption by man across from me countless times, anticipation of the event..but I tried and as always did my visualization of the movie characters into the book characters even though I have not seen the movie. It was so easy to picture Rachel McAdams as Clare and Eric Bana as Henry. But try as I could at first I was confused honestly. All the time changing, moving forward and backward I had to laugh as it reminded me of the line from Funny Farm and the character Chevy Chase giving his wife his new book to read and she commented there were so many flash forwards and backwards and she thinks even a flash sideways.LOLOL I love that line..I sort of started to feel that way until I got to sit down and really take the book in. Once I did I'll confess it was addicting. It didn't hurt they had excellent music taste, punk backgrounds..I love that (wink) and a true passionate love for one another. I don't want to give away any of the book but I loved it. Loved it...and yes...cried my eyes out...like heaving cries..I hate that..but then again they are good for you now and then. Kind of clears your head. So thanks Misty...thanks Audrey Niffenegger..you're amazing. I know must see the movie and I have to smile as fortune smiled on me and I was fortunate to pick up her newest book... Her Fearful Symmetry....can't wait!
