Back at it! A New Card Class

I am excited to share with you my first card class in 4 months. I struggled with whether or not I would come back to teaching. I couldn't quite put my finger on my feelings but I just let myself have those feeling and not worry about it too much. The new My Mind's Eye paper lines came into the store and I knew I wanted to create with it... so here we are. Inspired by the gold foil I created these 6 cards and will be teaching it on Saturday, March 21. You can head on over to the Treasured Memories blog to see the details.

Around Here

(seriously, I could eat her up)

There has been little space to breath around here and February blew by me leaving a trail of ice and puddles. Ok, that is just the weather around here. I may have thrown a temper tantrum the other day that sounded a lot like this- "Be winter. -OR- Be spring. PICK one Weather. Pick one. " I most likely flailed my arms around in the air too. 

In any case, life looks a lot like...
- spring cleaning
- Anna attending her first classmate birthday party
- Valentine's parties
- Cory working out of town
- feeling under the weather
- blood work & biopsies (tests for an autoimmune disease)
- reading whatever I can on autoimmune disease
- realizing I can track symptoms back 10 years
- splurging on new towels and bedding
- being outside when the weather is beautiful
- watching Lost Girl on Shomi
- planning for my first ever scrapbook retreat
- piles of laundry... everywhere...why can it never find it's way back into the drawers
- being late for playschool everyday
- cancelling subscriptions because our dollar is the shits
- brunch every weekend 
- drinking grapefruit beer (Stiegl)
- drooling over new scrapbook product
- soaking in bubble baths
- trying to listen to my gut and learning to say no

Serious layout love.

This layout was shared today on the Treasured Memories Feature Friday but I needed to also share here. I am IN LOVE with this page. The colors, the circular design, the picture of Anna's first time in the ocean.... seriously makes me happy! 

Happy start to the weekend friends!
