Whhewww wwwhheee!

It's been forever since I've posted to my blog. I am so sorry about that. I know that you were probably wondering if I fell off the face of the planet. Sadly, the answer is no, although there were many times when it would have been more enjoyably had that been the case. It just has not seemed like summer to me this year and I've already gone back to my day job officially. However, that just means that school is that much closer to starting, which in turn means that my beautiful children, that I love so very much, will be heading back to school! YAY!!!! I mean that in the most caring and loving, I'll miss them so much, sort of way. We have so many changes in store for us this year for school. My oldest daughter, Raven, will be entering high school this year (I can't be that old!!). She's very excited about this. I, however and quite terrified of the mean people who will try to talk her into things that she shouldn't be doing. My middle daughter, Sierra Jade, will be entering middle school this year. She can't be like me and just go into regular classes or anything. She will be going to the Middle Years International Baccalaureate Academy. We had a picnic this afternoon and I was the one who had to sit through short snippet classes to enlighten parents on what our children will be experiencing shortly. Again, I'm terrified... I sure hope she gets it because I won't be much help with homework! Unless of course, it's anything stamping-related - that, I can do!! Finally, my youngest and only son, Keegan Ryley, will be the only child in the same school as last year. He will be going into the second grade. This works for me. We've had a child attending this school every year since Raven was in Kindergarten, oh, 9 years ago. So with all the new adventures we're getting ready to come face-to-face with, I have to tell you how very happy I am to have my stamping to fall "n2" - that safe haven for me that makes everything else melt away. Who needs Calgon when you have this??

Here's a little box we created at my Stamp Club this past Sunday. We used the Big Shot and the exclusive Stampin' Up! Bitty Box and Envelope Die. So many possibilities with this die. We used the Retro Remix Wheel and Hello Again stamp set that I received at Convention a couple weeks ago. Gotta love those free sets!

Here's a glimpse of what was inside this adorable box...

We used Teeny Tiny Wishes for the sentiments on the cards. Can't you see giving this as a gift to your friends and family? So versatile, they'll have a card for any occasion right at their fingertips.

I hope you enjoy this sweet bitty box. Look for an updated class schedule soon, so that you can escape the hum, drum everyday life and dive 'n2stampin'...

I am so glad to see that you haven't fallen of the face of the earth! I know that your upline will be happy with your new post! Cute Big Shot project! Jason will be going into the second grade as well, so this should be a fun year here in Northern VA! Melina will be a junior down your way at Oscar Smith HS.
