Catching up ....

Just in time for Mother's Day! Wishing every women out there a very special day .. whether you're the mother of your children, dogs, cats, or fish ... whichever, each and everyone of you are special! Enjoy YOUR day ...

These beautiful amarylis opened up just in time for the occasion. These were my mom's favorite flower. She had them in her garden, lots of them, as far back as I can remember. She would send me to school with bouquets of these for my teachers ... so today my sister and I took a bouquet to the cemetery for her ....

And yesterday I took another fabulous all day class with Julie Haymaker at Frenzy Stamper ... again, if you haven't ever taken one of her classes, you should. She's awesome and the projects are just so dang cute!! This is "Walking Rusty" .. not to worry its my camera, not your eyes, had a hard time getting a clear photo of her .... Julie's got some great classes coming up over the summer at the store ... Call Bick at 480-946-0007 for details ...

And a few simple cards I put together. Its so satisfying to me to grab my box of scrap papers and sit and make cards out of all the scraps ... they don't have to be masterpieces .... just cute and quick ....

So now I color images with my copics whenever I feel like coloring, then when I feel like making cards ... I've got images ready, grab my box of scraps ... and get to making cards!

And no card I make is complete until the inside is decorated as well ....

And last ... I've been wanting, but putting off, getting a smartphone ... I was holding out for an iphone, but just hadn't made the leap yet .... would I use it, do I need it .... but opportunity presented itself and I took the leap ..... its not an iphone but it is a DROID .... and my gosh!! .... what a blast! ... what a smart phone!! ... I haven't quit playing with it since I got it .... and i've still got sooo much to figure out about it!!
Hope your week is awesome ..... mine will be ..... a few days of work, two days of preview days for Creative Escape ... and two days of a special event at Hero Arts! More about all that next week.
