A friend of mine turned me onto Scrapbook News and Review recently. It's an online crafting magazine that is loaded with inspiration. According to them each issue is jam packed with dozens of articles, technique tutorials, and hundreds of layouts, cards and projects! We also have sketches, product reviews, digital templates and a rockin' mixed media section. It really is worth the time to grab a cup of coffee and take in all the eye candy, learning a thing or two along the way. I submitted a card I created for their "Welcome Home" category this month, and it was selected for publication. Yay! I can't show you the project, unfortunately, but wanted to share the news. I'll be sure to share it with you once the 30 days are up.
It's been a long week here. Dh has been out of town for 3 days, and work, the kids schedules, and volunteer duties have kept me very busy. I feel like I'm dragging my feet around from one day to the next. I think the lack of sun has something to do with my demeanor also. We've not had sun for the past 2 days. It would seem as though we likely won't have any for the next few either. I'm a person who can be easily affected by the weather. I don't like that fact, but it is what it is. When it's grey and rainy I feel sleepy and apathetic. When it's cold and slushy, I stay in, and watch too much tv, and on the few days of the year when the sun shines in all it's glory, I have a ton of energy, am very productive, and have extra bounce in my step. I miss the sun. Not only would I feel more energized, but I could also photograph the few projects I've completed to share with you. I have a little time tomorrow, so I'll try my best to capture a shot as best as I can, sun or no sun.
For now, how about an oldie of dh and I. The photo was taken last year about this time in Banff. It is so gorgeous there, the mountains never fail to captivate me. We'll be back there again in less than two weeks. Can't wait to get away with just my guy for a little R&R.
Happy Thursday friends, hope it's treating you well,
