Crazy Month

I made thes sweet cards back in June. I am only getting around to posting them. I love those cute little dolls from Hero Arts! They rock.
This month has been just this side of insane!! And, unfortunately I did very little creating this month. Too many other things to be done. DH had vacation the first week, then I had 2 weeks off (first time ever that I got vacation in the summer). We ripped up a carpet and put peel and stick tile down, then we painted two rooms. I took the kids to the Valley a couple of times, once to visit a girlfriend, and once to go to the zoo. The weather was GORGEOUS - other than hurricane Bill, who blew in last week. Now Danny is on his way.
I did make some cards last night with my cricut, so when I take pics, I will post them. I have a swap due in the next 2 weeks, which is done, but not yet mailed, and 2 more due in the next month and a half, so I really need to get creating!
In very sad news, we had to put down our 14 year old kitty yesterday. She was blind (who knew??) had high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, probable kidney problems and most likely a brain tumor. It was devastating - especially for the kids. DS is very sad, and DD said to me "Don't worry mummy, we'll see her again in heaven" - she's 3. DH and I are talking about getting another cat. I would love to get a sibling pair, so they could keep each other company - haven't mentioned taht to DH yet...
a la prochaine...

Great day!!

We had such a fun day today! the kids and I went to Rainbow Haven Beach with my inlaws and couple of nephews and 2 of my sister in laws and their hubbys. Fun was had by all, though I am pretty burnt! Funny how I manged to sunscreen the kids, but not myself! Ugh... Then we had a BBQ with the family again, and then I went to see The Proposal with a girlfriend. What a cute movie!

I didn't manage to get any crafting done, but that's OK. Maybe tomorrow, though I am putting new flooring in the computer room/ "room of crap"... hubby is going golfing. A busy weekend planned for us. I plan to post a pic or two of our trip to the beach, but my computer is acting up. what can you do?

A la prochaine.
