It seems like things have just been non-stop crazy lately. I've been super busy at work with no energy when I get home to do much of anything... and just no real desire to head into the craft room. But today after church I suddenly felt the desire to come in and do something, so I did it while I was still feeling it. I decided to go ahead and finish my 28 Days of Love album. I figured, so what that it's St. Patrick's Day and I haven't touched it for weeks? Let's get 'er done.
Here are the last layouts from the book... for all but 2 of them, I was having a hard time with the prompts, so I just made up my own:
About 2 weeks ago I got a package in the mail from my cousin Jen's little girl, Savannah - she sent me a Flat Stanley so he could have an adventure in Connecticut and go back to California to tell her class all about it. So last week, I took him out to see some of the sites.
Hanging at the Town Green after a very pretty snow (since he's from California, I had to make him a coat, gloves, hat, and scarf!)
Stanley and I also went to Bishop's Orchards to shop for local maple syrup / apple syrup / apple cider. I was able to send him back to California with some photos, a story about where he stayed, and some maple sugar candies for Savannah and her brothers. I hope the class enjoys hearing about his adventure!
And meanwhile, I saw this hopeful sign in my yard earlier this week:
And finally, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I made a fun little treat for my Laurels - rainbows in a cup (Starburst jelly beans) complete with clouds (marshmallows) and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow (Rolos). They loved them!
That's it! Now I'm off for dinner... I cooked up some corned beef and potatoes with cauliflower (I like it better than cabbage) and some Irish Soda Bread (which I didn't bake... why bother when I can buy it? lol.) It's been smelling delicious all afternoon :)
(P.S.... I'm a total blog slacker, but I do post on Instagram several times a week for those who are interested.)
