WOW! What a crazy couple of months it's been! With Lia's Birthday in April and 4 school Birthday's and colds and coughs in between, crafting time has been next to nil! Just when I thought things were looking up....my computer died! OMG! I never knew I depended on it soooo much! I was terrified that my pictures and digi's were all gone. Thankfully, the hard drive was intact. It took a few weeks for my hubby to find the right system for me and load all my programs and pics but we did it!
Lia received her own Laptop for her Birthday and now I have my own as well! Once my husband gets his....no more sharing! YAY! Finally something to call my own LOL
So the time I did have to craft came fast and furious. I need to create 3 Mother's Day gifts for a client. I came across A DTM over at Papertry Ink named Nichole Heady and her work. She has the most beautiful gift ideas! The Teacher's Journaling Set immediately caught my eye. I switched the theme to Mother and came up with 100 of my own questions a mother would enjoy (ie: Pregnancy, Parenting) and followed her amazing template. And how can I pass up entering a few challenges with this set........
