It's Been A LONG Time!!!

I am so sorry to have been absent from blogging, but my creative juices had run dry and I was in no shape to stamp. Here's the short version:
-I got pregnant with baby #3

-I got VIOLENTLY sick

-I lost 15 lbs in a short time

-Laid in bed for about 10 weeks

-I took a family vacation in early July

-I'm finally starting to feel a lot better...not 100%, but better!!

Here's the BIG NEWS though.....we're having a GIRL! Yay for the pink team! I've been outnumbered in this house for over 5's time I get to do something really girly, besides stamping!

In other BIG NEWS, Luke and Tyler started Kindergarten and I really like their new teacher. Her name is Mrs. Kim and this is her first year teaching Kinder after 5 years with 6th graders! She's very brave! So, I made her this adorable Teachers Survival Kit. I got the idea of the Demonstrator group called Stampin' Connection.

Here is the note that went with it:
Almonds when your class is making you feel a little nutty
Band-Aids for when things get a little rough
Chewing gum to help you stick to it
Crayons to color your day bright and cheerful
Eraser to remind you everyone makes mistakes
Lifesavers for when you’ve had one of those days
Paperclips to hold it all together
Pencil to “write your wrongs”
Rubber band to remind you to be flexible
Shiny penny to remind you that each will shine in his or her
own special way
Starburst to give you a “burst” of energy when you need it
Tissues to wipe away the tears…yours and theirs
Toothpick to help you “pick” out the good qualities in
others and yourself.

I will be posting more regularly and scheduling classes starting in August. If you haven't picked up your copy of the NEW Idea Book and Catalog, be sure to stop by and get it...there are TONS of new things!!
I look forward to stamping with you VERY SOON!!!! I miss you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
