Oh the places we will go....

Good Morning
It is a cool Saturday here, but the sun looks like it might shine today.  I have cleaned the top of my crafting table (last night) and it is ready for creativity. 
I also was reading about the Manchester Scrapbooking Convention coming up next week in New Hampshire.  I did not know they advertise for helpers to work and volunteer at the convention.  .....I applied to a couple of them.   How cool would that be?  Earn money and play with crafts!  We'll see.  They also have a volunteer page, so if I don't hear back from the vendors to work, I can volunteer to help and get free stuff.  Who doesn't like free stuff?  And from Creating Keepsakes?! 
Off to play.  Maybe cards, scrapbooking, mini albums---liking those these days.  Have a scraptabulous day!

I'm baaaack

It's a good day when the sun is out.
I haven't posted in a long while, I know, but I'm back and hopefully to post every few days or at least once a week.  Lord knows I'm on this blessed computer enough!
Firstly, God bless the folks in Boston.  My prayers are with those folks that were injured or near the bombs that went off and especially for the lives lost.   A terrible thing on such a day--the Boston Marathon and Patriots Day. 
On a lighter note,  crafting has been good.  I covered 4 composition notebooks--with different types of media, and made one mini album----so far. 
They are for my son, Christian to give away as prizes and gifts for his poetry slam coming up this Thursday April 18. 
Go if you can to support the local artists.
Also working on other things.....spring cleaning, yard work now that the weather is sloooowly getting warmer,  crochet projects----to name a few. 
Another thing I am thinking about is a post I found on Facebook.....
from Spellbinders:
It is a big challenge, but a really wonderful one.  Talk about having to rev up the creativity dial!   Am I up to it?  It is more than just making a few things---more like a creative job----truly a dream job.   Thinking...thinking....
Off for now, to take a nap, have to work tonight---
