Divine Twine Pom-Poms

Wow.  I didn't actually think I would have another post this soon!
I have to say I am a bit pleased with myself!
But I got Kellan down for a nap, took a shower, which was much needed after almost 3 days, and since the other 3 boys are still at school, I wanted to try to get this card posted that I made last night.
When I went to Impress the other night, they had a sample of these little pom-poms which are made out of Divine Twine.  Since I absolutely love twine, what could be better than making little embellishments out of it?
I thought it would be perfect for the top of a party hat for this birthday card.  The chevron striped card is also something I picked up the other night....usually I am not one to buy already made cards, mainly because I have a ton of card stock, but I just couldn't pass these guys up!

Gonna keep this short, two posts in two days, is a little much after 4 months of nothing!
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

So Many Things

When I logged onto blogger tonight, a part of me wondered if my blog was still here.....

And, yes, even though it is here, I am wondering if there is anyone who still visits.....

I can't believe that it has been over 4 months since I have posted. I have also not stamped in about as long.....well, I have done a few little things here and there, mostly out of necessity, but really, for a reason that I am just about to divulge, I have not been stamping.

In early September, I found out I was pregnant with my 5th child. Although we knew we wanted another, it was a bit of a shock that it happened when it did. As with all my other pregnancies, I became quite sick, and basically everything in my life with the exception of keeping my family fed and in clean clothes, was put on hold. Even one of the greatest joys in my life: stamping.

A few other road blocks came up in November, and then the Holiday and Christmas season hit and I became wrapped up in that.

Now it is January, a time to begin fresh, and start anew. I am happy to say that I had a chance to visit one of my favorite little stamping stores last night for the first time since this past summer. It inspired me to stamp again, although I know that I will not be producing as much as I have in past years. Hopefully it will be enough to share some fun things here, if there's anyone out there that still checks in...... I actually stamped tonight, and made a couple of just for fun, and the other for the current Paper Crafts call. It would be fun to be published again this year! Hopefully the weather will permit me to get outside tomorrow to snap some pics of the cards and I can get one posted here.

Hope you all are having a great start to 2012.

I am very excited for what this year will bring, mostly because we found out a few weeks ago, that after having 4 boys, BABY #5 is going to be a GIRL!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
