It’s about time I got back into the swing of things, isn’t it?! In case you’ve been wondering where in the world I’ve been, here are some pictures and a quick recap of the last month:
National Aquarium in Baltimore | Movie Nights & Popcorn | Philadelphia Zoo | Feeding the Ducks | Lots of Playing Outside – Pool, Sidewalk Chalk, Parks, and Toys | Superhero Antics | Mario Kart – Wii | Cooking – Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner … Repeat | Forts!
I spent my afternoon today cleaning / organizing my craft area and working on Mojo Monday while Hayden decorated the floor with many many pom poms. 🙂 Here’s the sketch for this week:
And here’s my take on it:
I decided to make a non-traditional birthday card today for my great aunt. She shares a birthday with me (I’m an entire month ahead on this one!) and is one of the most selfless people I know. She is so sweet and thoughtful, always putting others first and never forgetting anyone. I was determined to make a birthday card especially with her in mind this year.
When I saw the new InColors in the catalog, I was a little hesitant to get them and actually didn’t purchase them right away. But, I wanted to use the Patio Party DSP so I broke down a few weeks ago and got the new InColors paper and ink – and I love them! I also love the Patio Party DSP; expect more samples with this in the future!
