Better late than never!

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:

28 Days of Love days 19-20
28 Days of Love days 21-22
28 Days of Love days 23-24
28 Days of Love days 25-26
(And the inside of day 26, which just happens to show the next trip that I've signed up for!)

And for the last one, I had to use a photo of a Muse concert since I'm getting really excited to go see them again next month.

That's it! The finished book... I think some larger rings are in order:

And a few other things that have been going on in the last few weeks...

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!)

Then we went over to Stony Creek to visit the beach and see the Thimble Islands out in the sound. The sun was very bright and it was beautiful!

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 :)

Later!

(P.S.... I'm a total blog slacker, but I do post on Instagram several times a week for those who are interested.)
