It's pretty unusual for me to go more than a week without posting.  I miss the conversation that being online generates in my life.  It has been incredibly busy over in these parts the last couple weeks.  I found myself in charge of our school's celebration of Red Ribbon Week with a friend of mine and it took place this past week.  It was insane.  It doesn't help that neither one of us are willing to settle for the easy way out (although many times we both wondered why we didn't just do the simple way).  So we found ourselves spending hours counting, stapling and running around creating a gigantic paper chain that it took the entire 6th grade to move.  (our 6th grade has over 130 kids)  But, we felt it was successful and that the kids really understood what Red Ribbon Week was about by the time it was over.  {for those of you who are wondering that yourselves- Red Ribbon Week is when the school focuses on helping the children learn to say NO to drugs.}  I am so happy it is over I can't even tell you. :)
Now it's on to bigger and better things.  An 8 year old birthday, decorating for our neighborhood Halloween party, games for class parties, costumes, boutique inventory, Grandpa's 80th birthday, a baptism, starting cub scouts and all the rest of the normal everyday stuff. 
Life tends to be busy anyway, but the past few weeks have been ridiculous.  Needless to say there's not a lot of creative creating going on around here.  However- I have been carving out a bit of time to start working on my Point of View project using BURLAP.  The reveal and link party is next week so I hope you will play along. 
And one last item of business- If you didn't win my Felt Bat Pillow and would like another shot at it- I am giving on away over at Karen's Monster Craft Bash on Pocket Full of Pink.  The giveaway will go live this afternoon (Friday). 
So happy Friday.  Enjoy your weekend and we'll see you next week! :)
