Hi there! Hope you're having a great week so far. Mine's been good & crafty.
Ok, I do have one complaint. This time change has really messed with my sleep! I mean it's nice to leave work when it's light out for a change, and it's great for my crafting... but not so great for my mind/body.
Like (probably) a lot of you working girls when I'm in a crafty mood (which is not always every night, but often), after I get home/have dinner with the family/do the bedtime routine/put my babies to bed, I start my crafting while the hubby is channel surfing. This is usually around 9pm. Then, depending on my project, I'll craft until 11-11:30pm on a week night (later on the weekends, if I want to). After that, I have to wind down with a little t.v., myself, and am usually waking the hubbs up to head up stairs around 12-12:30am. Since the time change my body/mind aren't settled even at bedtime. I had to lay in bed for an hour both Sunday and Monday night wishing I could go to sleep :(.
Ok, ok, I know, I shouldn't even complain... it's my "choice" to stay up and all, but you know how it is, sometimes you can't not create. You get an idea, or have a product you've been dying to use... Anyway, Last night's bed time, you ask? 12:23am. To be fair, I finished my crafty project, in this case, a scrapbook layout, by 10:46pm but wasn't tired. Boo :(.
Enough about me and my whiney sleep-deprived ranting. So to create my layout, I used Prima's "So Cute" patterned paper. I've had it my stash for A WHILE (got it from Paper Niche - too hard to pass up). Anyway, I thought it was perfect for these cute pictures of my sweet little Alivia. She was almost 6 months old in these pictures. She's so big now. Almost 3! The time goes by so quickly!!!
I love the addition of the bakers twine (in Carribean) from the Twinery. There is just something about bakers twine that makes me extremely happy! I attached it with Tim Holtz's Tiny Attacher (and Glossy Accents). I really love journaling on layouts, but kept it short, sweet, and simple here - let the pictures do the talking ;).
And here are a few details:
Ok that's my share for today. Thanks for peeking. I really appreciate all your comments and support. It makes me feel super happy!! Have a great day!!
