It's been a long long time

This is  the most time that has gone by in between posts........luckily as you can see I have been busy.......still no excuse.....my batteries always need to be charged on my days off.....and seeing how busy my children are definitely energizes me.   This is a show Kaylyn is in at her school.  It is a recycling theme.
This is a painting of her future roommate.....they share the pink streak in their hair.   The background is scratch off lottery tickets.......these were from Easter Dinner.....Now, that the kids are bigger my Mom brings scratch offs for holiday dinners......no one has won more than $20 with all those tickets......I wonder how long that tradition will last..........but, it does make a cool background.....I just love that Kaylyn thinks of these things.....she did not see it somewhere and copy the idea........very impressive!!!!
Our favorite part was seeing people look at her work........very exciting!!!!!!!
Ian played this weekend at the Stone Pony with the band Woodfish......don't have the link with their website....but, if you google Woodfish they include him as a member on their site......so...so Proud of these two.   I love the sound of the group too......they are not a cover band they play their own music!!!!!  Again so exciting.....
Participated in a May Flowers tag swap......aren't all of these lovely????
Tussy Mussy swap.......I think I had the best partner.....I love all and everything and especially love all that was made by Maria.

Went to see the jazz ensemble Ian played in......and this is all outside of working at Paper Source.   We have been non stop at work......not one lull every day.....It is good to be busy!!!!  The town had Communiversity on Saturday.....the street is closed with vendors and the amount of people who come into town is beyond comprehension.  We had a successful Girls Night Out on Earth Day.  It was recycling and it was a great group of women and full of ideas to use old catalogs and calenders in making flowers, paper folding, card making and using the Silhouette. Yes, we are selling the Silhouette machine online now.  Phew......I am tired just thinking about everything.  I have today and tomorrow off and I am off to a great start.......first things first was to catch up on my blog.  I have some crafting to do and will share with pics soon!!!!!

Loved seeing the pictures and reading news from you. :) Your kids are so talented!! What a blessing. ♥

Glad everything is going well, albeit busy. It's difficult juggling all of our many different tasks, isn't it? But, it's fun. :)
Blessings to you,
Linda
