It is a quiet, kind of lazy, beautiful sunshiny day here today. I am enjoying the windows open and the sun pouring through my windows. It has been a good day despite my rotten cold, and I am accomplishing quite a bit of house cleaning and also paying attention to my artistic side!
Yesterday was a great day. Colleen arrived back from California Friday evening so Saturday we headed to Starbuck's and Mystic Paper. Got all caught up on the goings on of Mystic, Kim and Jennifer's lives and we got a special showing of Baby Ella via Colleen's new digital picture frame. Baby Ella is such a doll and she looks like her daddy that is for sure. After a filling good good lunch at TC's we headed home.
I started working on some of my many projects and kits sitting here. I am determined to get these finished and in my albums this year:) I have finished my word album that I have put together to highlight my word FOCUS, completed 2 layouts with pics no less, and am working on Carol Wingert's monthly kit. I love her kits.
Between all this I am sneezing and coughing. I seem to have gotten the cold that all of my kids, the Doc, and all the patients have had. I am drinking OJ, eating oranges and drinking lots of hot tea. I am actually better today so lets hope it leaves quickly.
Great oranges from Trader Joe's
My newest toy I am in love with. This is kind of a smaller version of my ATG 700. I am loving it and the best part is the refills just snap in. Too cool.
Cover of my focus album. I made a transparency for the cover and then used Basic Grey Urban Prairie for the pages. I just put in random bits and pieces of paper, envelopes and hopefully I will use it:)
