Breath in, Breath out, repeat

Good morning friends.

That is going to be my mantra this week.  Every morning of the week is full, and every night is planned, and pretty much every afternoon, has something going on.  Those of you who work outside the home, my hat's off to you, and those of you who are single parents, you have my utmost respect.  This mommy/wife thing can seem all consuming even without having to hold down a full time job outside of these four walls.  I am grateful for this life, don't get me wrong. but everyone of us feels like we've got too many plates spinning at times.  One foot in front of the other, keep grounded in thoughts and prayers, breath in, breath out, and take time to enjoy the moments in between, that will be my focus this week.

I am excited to be heading this up.  Kick off is today, and I can't wait to see how things unfold.  I am very grateful to the DT of My Scrapbook Nook for giving me the freedom to run with this idea, and hope it is fun for all involved.  I'll be sure to share here when everyone has had a chance to complete their layout.

If you haven't heard yet Scrapbook Circle is having a DT call.  I've only recently discovered this blog and think they have some pretty great looking kits.  Yes, I am already a member to two kit clubs, and yes, I am seriously considering this one too.  Can you ever have too much of a good thing?  Well, yes, actually you can, but you know what I'm getting at.  I've decided to apply.  The existing team looks like a lot of fun, and some have been my scrappy friends for awhile already.  I'd love the opportunity to work with LG, Elizabeth, and Nicole.  Wish me luck, I'd really appreciate it.

And, because it's only right to start the week with a layout I thought I'd share this one.  To be honest I can't remember if I've already shared it here or not.  If so, it would have been some time ago.  Either way it's fitting for me this week.

How is everyone doing with back to school/activities/routine.  I'd love to know I'm not the only one on the hamster wheel.

Oh, and I almost forgot.  In the middle of Saturday afternoon errands, I discovered this Studio Calico post on Facebook...

Our FIVE Glee Club winners from the Share the Love contest:
Cheryl Leong
Sherri Wesley Funk
Julie Lynn Greenwood Urban
Cindy Whiting Miller 
Julie A. Shearer

Cool right?  Glee Club is one of my favorite SC  kits to date, check it out.  I am loving working with it.  Guess what I'm going to do with my free kit.  If you guessed give it away, you'd be right!  I haven't figured out how or when, but one of my lucky readers is going to get their hands on this fabulous lot of scrappiness.  Who knows it could be you.

Hope your week is off to a nice start.  Thanks for popping by, please know I really appreciate it.

♥ S.

Hey Sherri how did you get all of the symbols on the bottom of your posts? Like email, or FB, etc? I can't figure it out! Thanks!
