…good or not, it is what it is. Now I’m back and hoping to have more time to spend here.
I’ve recently been blessed with the option to quit my part-time job. While I will miss the folks I worked with for the past 3 1/2 years, it is so nice to only work my full-time job and have more time for the things I love, like gardening and stamping. I’ve shown pictures of my back-yard before – yes the deer are still eating my hosta and bird seed – but I’ve had so much more time this summer to keep ahead of the weeds (well, for the most part) and focus on making some changes that I’ve had rolling around in my head for so long. I’ll post some before/after pictures later this summer, but for now, I’m just excited to see all the green.
The spring has also been inconsistent – weather-wise. Which has given me some valuable stamping time. Our summers are so short in Minnesota, I feel guilty spending any of it inside when it’s nice out.
Stampin’ Up! brought an OnStage event to Minneapolis in April and I got a pack of the Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP as a gift. To be honest, I wasn’t too impressed at first. I just thought the color combination was a bit weird. Well, I started playing and came up with the following card. I selected a retired sentiment (sorry – it’s Big Wishes from last year’s catalog), but the rest of the card contains current materials. See below for the recipe. I’m really happy with how it turned out…and I’m a new fan of the Mosaic Mood DSP!!
Well, as I seem to mention a lot, my plan is to post more often. I’m hoping with my new-found free time that I will be able to do that. I’ll be posting my July newsletter tomorrow – look for my July and August classes. I’m so excited to be able to start hosting classes in my house again!
