know a good therapist???

in the past three weeks i honestly feel as though i have aged a decade...due to some familial issues i have been so tied up and torn up and worn out by those things that are at times beyond our individual control.  i won't go in to too much detail...if you know me that know what has been going i'll leave it at that.  i will say that i actually (and this is BEYOND RARE for me) took today off from work...not something i ever really do...but i just needed a day off!  so yesterday (thursday) i looked at my boss and said i'm taking PTO tomorrow (friday)...thankfully i work for the best boss in the world...all he said was ok...see ya monday, have a good weekend!  and today i had a great day...because i did almost NOTHING!  a little shopping...but seriously MINOR shopping!  i have not really been crafty for a few weeks...feels like months...but today...i was starting to feel the ooomph again!  i have zero real plans for this hopefully without putting any pressure on myself...i will get something done creatively...get a little crafty...and actually post something scrappy-related this weekend!  if not...oh well...just feel the need to get in touch with my laid back side!  LOL!

Then I colored the oh so cutie-patootie little Edward from the Wild Sprouts line...attached him to a lollipop stick...and then well..there you have it!

what a week...

and it's over...sort of...

there has been a lot going on here with me...lots of craziness at work (both good and bad)...i've really enjoyed all the new things i've been diving into at work...but at some's like...whoa...where did the day go??? (or in actuality...where did the WEEK GO????)

have had almost no chance to be crafty...until today...I'm contributing the Round Four project for The Greeting Farm Battle have spent some time on that today...

Have to go out of town tomorrow...unexpectedly...hope it turns out to be an ok trip...we'll see

rather exhausted these days...hope to get back to the crafty goodness soon!

It's been a looooong week!

And i have been ridiculously busy doing anything BUT scrapping!  Had a lovely week long visit from the in-laws...had so much going on at work...that I honestly haven't even spent more than five minutes in my craft room since last weekend!  This must change!  I'm really really really hoping to get bizzy with my scrappiness tomorrow!  If not later tonight!

Either way I will have some things to share tomorrow!  Including the Lollipop Guild's most recent entry in the Greeting Farm Battle Royal...we made it to round 3!  Thank you for all the votes!  We'll need some more starting tomorrow!  Hugs everyone!

a beautiful day...and a beautiful my gal Tracey!

Hello everyone!  Hope you are enjoying a BEAUTIFUL Easter day!  I've been just hanging out at the house with my little one...hubby is at work...and the in-laws arrive tonight!  We didn't do eggs or baskets this year...just been rather quiet...which is often all we need!  The reason for my post today?  The Lollipop Guild!  We made it to round two of The Greeting Farm Battle Royale...and voting has opened up!  We could use all the love you can share!  This week's challenge in the battle was to create an Easel Card...and here is our team's submission, created by the lovely and talented Miss Tracey!

Is that not FABULOUS??????  So please, if you have a few mins to spare...we'd love your vote!  We are uber excited and hope to give Miss Pryn a chance to share her talent with everyone for round three!  You can go to this post and read about how to enter the voting!  Here is a link to Tracey's card in the challenge galleria.

Many thanks!  And I sincerely hope you all have a wonderous rest of your day!
